To Every Older Guy Who Enjoys Hitting On College-Aged Girls In 2019, You Can Stop Any Day Now

No, it's not cute.


Hi. I'm your normal college-aged kid. I have a job. I go to school. I flirt with boys. I mean, that's typical, right?

Sure, sometimes I wear clothes that some may deem too "sexy". Sometimes I even curl my hair and wear makeup. Not for attention, but merely so I can take a good selfie- or at least try.

Never in my life have I worn an outfit to please a pair of eyes. Never in my life have I curled my hair so a random dude can admire the time I took to fix it.

But one thing I know: I never dress in a way that "asks for it." I never wear clothes that scream "I want a man," whatever those "outfits" may be. If they even exist.

But still, all these thoughts run through my head when I receive a message in my DMs.

Maybe... I am asking for it.

It all starts when I receive a message from an older man. Usually he says, "Hey". If it's a good day, he'll include a winky face. Sometimes he is twenty years my senior. Sometimes he has a wife and kids. You never know.

To them, I look like a little college girl looking for a man. An easy target.

I should be lucky to have their attention. After all, he is an older man with his life together. Meanwhile, I'm a college kid with broken dreams and a skinny bank account.

No matter what these men assume, these messages make my heart sink into my stomach. It isn't a compliment. It isn't something that "makes my day".

It makes me question my worth.

It makes me question the way I present myself to the world.

Am I too friendly? Do I say the wrong things? What am I doing wrong?

If the world would see these older men hitting on me, I would surely be to blame. They would deem me as a desperate college kid trying to get attention. I know they would. I see it all the time.

But, this is something I never asked for.

I didn't dress for.

I didn't invite.

So why is it my fault? I must've made them text me. I must've given them a certain, dreamy look.

Why else would they talk to me?

I'm just your normal college kid. I have a job. I go to school. I flirt with boys, not desperate men.

12 Things Young Republicans Are Tired Of Hearing

A dozen myths about conservatism and what the real deal is.


As a college student, I know a lot of people my age consider themselves very liberal. It's a rare occasion when you meet another conservative on campus. Being a young Republican, there are several negative assumptions that come along with that.

Here is a list of 12 things we're all tired of hearing.

1. "You're only a Republican because your parents are."

Yes, my parents are both Republican and that's where my morals and beliefs were first taught, but I am my own person. I have done my own research and decided that my views side with the Republican Party. There are several things that even my parents and I disagree on. I wouldn't choose to be a Democrat just so I could be different.

2. "I bet you support Trump."

While many Republicans my age are supporting Trump, that doesn't mean we all are. We're entitled to our personal opinions and assuming we're all the same is incorrect. Just because you are a Republican doesn't mean you automatically support Trump.

3. "You're racist, sexist, etc."

This couldn't be farther from the truth. There are so many Republicans that come from unique racial and cultural backgrounds, both genders included. Take Marco Rubio, Condoleezza Rice, Ben Carson, and Bobby Jindal. These are just a few of the many, many examples.

4. "You're uneducated about the issues."

Just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn't mean they're wrong or uninformed.

5. "You're only a Republican because you're rich."

I am by no means rich. Did my parents have enough money to support their family? Yes, and I'm very blessed for that. However, they didn't pay for everything. As for college, I worked my butt off to get scholarships and opportunities to succeed. I was taught at a very young age that money requires work and things aren't just handed to you. That's exactly the reason why I strongly support capitalism.

6. "Why don't you want free college?"

NOTHING IS FREE. Would free college be awesome? Absolutely! However, I do not believe it's fair to tax working people to pay for it. If you want something, work for it.

7. "The GOP is a bunch of old, white men."

This is so untrue. I mean take a look at all the well-known conservatives in America. Lauren Conrad, Britney Spears, Carrie Underwood, Carly Fiorina, Condoleezza Rice, Megyn Kelly, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, and so many more. Point proven.

8. "You're close-minded."

This is the most common and most annoying. Conservative does not equal close-minded. I love hearing about different ideas and opinions.

9. "You hate immigrants."

I personally feel like our immigration system is broken and needs to be changed so it's more accessible to become an American citizen. However, I don't believe those here illegally should receive taxpayer benefits. I'm all for immigration as long as it's done legally.

10. "You don't support women's rights."

Usually, this is brought up when talking about abortion. What about the rights of the unborn child? It's not just about one person's rights at that point.

11. "You should just #FeelTheBern."

#NO. I do not support socialism.

12. "You only hear the Fox News version."

Fox News is my favorite choice of news programs, but I also enjoy hearing the different views on CNN, NBC, Huffington Post, etc.

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.






















(and probably the most important tweet of all).
