What the world really wants for Christmas this year.

Dear Santa/God/Mr. President, (because you’re really all one in the same aren’t you?)

We have looked for the silver lining repeatedly in 2016 to no avail. We’re hoping Christmas, a time of miracles, may be the glaring exception. A man who said “Grab them by the p*ssy” is our elected head of state, but Leonardo DiCaprio did win an Oscar, so not all hope is lost. The people of America, and the people of the world, humbly ask you for at least these five things this Christmas:

1. Make Disney racier.

Disney has progressed from the damsel in distress angle to feminist focused films, like Frozen, and even representation of minorities, like in The Princess and the Frog. But don’t you think it’s about time we saw a lesbian, gay, or even transgender protagonist in a Disney movie? I think parents would leap at the chance to expose their children to the LGBT realm at such a young age.

2. Continue to deny climate change.

As of today, “the amount of carbon dioxide is higher than at any time in the last 650,000 years”, and statistical analysis by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggests that “global temperatures are expected to grown within the range of 0.5°F to 8.6°F by 2100”. But this means nothing, right?

3. Raise college tuition rates.

Without scholarships, I would be paying close to $65,000 per year to attend SMU; out-of-state tuition at University of Washington is $50,000 per year, and New York University in-state tuition is roughly $42,000 per year. Students typically earn minimum wage ($9-12 per hour) at their 12-18 hour per week job. That can easily cover standard tuition rates. Why not increase them? Americans love a challenge.

4. Put Harambe on Mt. Rushmore.

The famed ape, who was unlawfully killed on May 28th of this year, deserves as much commemoration, if not more, than our country’s renowned leaders. Therefore, we should erect Harambe’s head onto a national landmark; it’s only fair.

5. Allow Kanye West the opportunity to see himself perform live.

In 2013, Kanye said, “My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live”. Grant this God who walks among us mere mortals the privilege of seeing himself in concert; it may even prevent him from experiencing mental breakdowns mid concert.

We hope this isn’t too much to ask for; we'll be praying or drinking in the mean time.

Shalom,

The world

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

21 Tweets About Anti-Vax Children That Will Make Parents Get Their Kids Vaccinated ASAP

Vaccinate your kids. Period.

I have compiled 21 tweets about anti-vaccination parents and their children that did not only make me laugh, but made me further enforce my belief that parents need to vaccinate their kids.

These tweets are pretty dark, to be honest, but once you think about the situation at hand, sometimes it is best to approach it in a funny way so you can get your point across.

You have been warned.

These tweets may be funny, but the situation is not funny. Do your research and help people around you not get sick by vaccinating your kids.
