How To Cure Homosexuality

In class the other day we talked about how homosexuality used to be in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as just that, a mental disorder. We looked at articles that were titled “Thousands of Gays Cured,” get it? Because they weren't sick in the first place and the medical field finally recognized that… I think even though (most of) the professional realm has recognized that one’s sexual orientation is not an illness that needs to be treated, there are still a good number of people out there who believe it’s a decision that an individual makes, and that they’re literally “sick” enough to make that decision. Well for people who are morally stuck in the dark ages, I decided to write out a few steps for those who are looking for a quick fix to gayness! You’re so welcome!!!

1. Pray the gay away

“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” But not the "gay ones," don't worry, He definitely did not plan for people to just “love who they love.” We need to love who society wants you to love! Duhhhh!

2. Simply suppress your feelings

They’ll totally go away and you'll be like totally straight and perfect in just, like, a little bit. Because we all know suppressing who we really are in order to fit within societal standards of “normal” is super easy and won’t have longterm detrimental affects on us at all.

3. Conversion therapy

“It’s super ethical” - Probably Mike Pence at some point in his life

4. There’s an app for that

I wish I was kidding but no, there seriously there is such a thing… It’s a 60-day program called “Door of Hope” and it was created by… you guessed it! A non-denominational Christian ministry.

5. Educate yourself

I think it’s pretty blatantly obvious that this article is strictly satirical. It’s honestly sad that people still believe that one’s sexual orientation is something that can be “fixed.” People are born gay just as I myself was born straight, I didn't have a choice. Sexual orientation may not be “curable" but the way people think can be altered. With the proper education, sympathy and awareness the world could be a much more accepting and safer place. In this case, ignorance is the farthest thing from bliss. It is utter selfishness and unawareness of the fact that everyone is different and that it is okay that everyone is unique. So educate yourself, love yourself and be yourself.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
