Everyone Should Have Concerns About Brett Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh is the current Trump nominee for the empty Supreme Court seat. If you have been paying attention to the news since he accepted his nomination for the Supreme Court seat you probably have some mixed feelings about him and his nomination.

So bare with me I have some things to say about this and you may not agree with me. Before I jump into what I have to say though while reading this article please keep in mind that I am a 21-year-old feminist who is a 4th-year social work student so what I have to say and my opinions are because of how I feel this could affect the country and women's rights.

Three women have come forward and reported that they have been sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh when he was in high school and college.

This is not something that you should be saying boys will be boys about. This is not a situation in which you should tell these women that they are liars.

These women are coming forward now years after the fact for a variety of different reasons. In fact, many women don't report being raped or sexually assaulted until years later for fear of being told that they are a liar, a slut, or that they are just looking for attention.

Nine times out of ten when a person comes forward and reports being sexually assaulted they are telling the truth. So before you jump the gun and say that all these women are just looking for attention or they are trying to ruin his reputation remember that nine times out of 10 people who come forward and say that they have been sexually assaulted they are telling the truth.

So when you think about what it will mean for the country and women in our country if he is made our new Supreme Court Justice you should be a little scared or have some mixed feelings about this.

If Kavanaugh is the new Supreme Court Justice we will have many women who have been sexually assaulted that will be scared or worried about how some of the laws could change and affect how their cases are tried or dealt with.

Having a Justice who has been accused of sexually assaulting not just one but at least three women as of now is going to change some things in our country.

By having a justice who has been accused of sexually assaulting women alongside a president who has also been accused of sexually assaulting women is going to set an example for people that we do not want to have happening at higher rates in the future than it already is happening.

We should all have an opinion on this and we should all be a little worried about what will happen in this country if we have Kavanaugh as our new Supreme Court Justice.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
