I'm A Conservative Millennial And I Can't Handle Tomi Lahren

To the girl that's stirring up the political world, do some research.

I'm A Conservative Millennial And I Can't Handle Tomi Lahren
The Blaze

Dear Tomi,

Girl, you are killing me.. And I'm sure every other conservative millennial female out there as well. When I first heard about you I was so excited! What a great thing for us that someone has this much of a following and knows what it's like to be in our position, to be a young female conservative belonging to a primarily liberal generation. We will finally have a voice as loud as our liberal counterparts! We will finally have a way to get rational thoughts out there without being torn to pieces for opening our mouths! Boy, was I wrong or what?

I read through a few of your bios on the internet, and I was honestly impressed. Twenty-four years old with that kind of following and influence in the political community is really impressive even if you are using it incorrectly (just my opinion, you should understand all about those). I also watched a few of your final thoughts, actually, I watched them all. Not impressed to say the least was my mood after finishing the most recent one. Who gave you that stage? Where do you get your information? Do you even have any information?!?

The really hard thing about this is you and I think a lot alike. We have many of the same opinions. We feel passionately about political issues and desire to use our voices as women and inspire others to do the same, but I have to say you're going about it all wrong. You have to take a step back and get your facts straight because otherwise you're playing into the role they're portraying of conservative women being insensitive and ignorant.

Not once during all those final thoughts did I here a fact, a researched opinion, or anything that made any sense to me at all honesty. I did, however, hear a lot of hate, spite, and flat out opinionated snarky comments spewing out all over that screen. I'm disappointed. I expected a well researched, smart woman up there, calmly showing why she believes what she does, why she chooses to spend her career presenting these issues to the world. What I got was someone's racist, angry grandpa in a much prettier package.

My final thoughts for you to consider are pretty simple. Do some research, get some facts, don't get so hateful when discussing something that upsets you because you lose your standing and no one listens when you're mean. Stop giving conservative females a bad rep because you don't know what you're talking about and read too many Facebook comments for information on political issues. We're counting on you out there, use your following to the best of it's ability.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
