A Letter To The 'Nasty Men' Of America

Oh, you nasty boys.

A Letter To The 'Nasty Men' Of America

As election day grows closer and the phrase Nasty Woman spreads like wild fire, I find myself trying desparately to hold my tongue. The social media posts I stumble across on a day to day basis regarding Hillary Clinton and her lack of qualifications to be our next POTUS, have me holding my head on tight from a fear of it spinning out of control like the exorcist.

While being a feminist and a woman of color, I find it extremely difficult to explain to my friends and family who are on the more conservative side why I would rather want a corrupt woman over a pompus rapist as our next POTUS. And while it is hard for me to understand, a majority of these friends and family are men.

So, I have decided to pen a letter to not only those friends and family who may not seem to understand, but to the rest of our nations male population. If you find yourself siding with Donald Trump and his policies, this letter is for you. If you find yourself undecided as Tuesday creeps up on us, this letter is for you, too.

To the Nasty Men of America,

I write to you on this day, concerned about our future. While I feel that the future of our country rests in the hands of women such as myself, I feel that the future also rests in yours. We have been so lucky to have a president such as Barack Obama for the last eight years, whether you agree with his policies or not, and the thought of having someone new come into the oval office is quite scary.

Times have been a bit scarier than usual, and a lot of that fear stems from what the world could possibly turn into once a man like Donald J. Trump takes the White House. It is hard to understand what someone in your position would see in such a human being - after all, he has been accused of sexual assault more than once. This a man who believes that women are lesser than him, and that if you are a working woman who wants to be successful in the work place, you should just accept the fact that sexual harrassment in the work place is just part of the job.

Whether you agree with his immigration policies, his stance on gun control, or his opinions on the environment and abortion, I urge you to consider what kind of future you would be creating for our youth; what kind of future you would be creating not just for the women of America, but the other men of America.

I'm not going to sit here and ask you to talk to the women in your lives, because I'm sure that you have already heard their opinions. For all I know, they could have supported your political freedom or turned their heads. I will, however, ask you to look around yourselves and consider if we are prepared for such a major political change - one that could ultimately change the corse of everything we have worked so hard to build

If you beleive your vote doesn't matter, I challenge you by saying that it does. As men, your political freedom is what built our freedom. It may not be what defines us, but you have grown to be a key part of our history. I'm not asking you to vote for Hillary, because even I have struggled with my own vote for Hillary. But I will ask you once again to consider who outside of Donald Trump, could help us grow as a country.

If you decide to vote for the Nasty Man himself, I will not shun you of your choices; but I will be a bit disappointed. Disappointed in the step you have taken to set us back a hundred years in progress, but that's what politics is all about right? Finding the policies that may or may not work for us? Creating laws that might or might not benefit us in the long run?

I hope that on November 8th, you make the right choice. I hope that you wake up that morning with a sense of excitement for what the future can hold. And more than anything, I hope that you feel confident in your vote.


One of many Nasty Women

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!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
