Stop Telling Women To Lower Their Voice When Men Are Just As Loud
Dennis Magati

Dear Men that tell me I'm "Too loud,"

Thank you for noticing my confident yet powerful voice that was passed down to me from multiple generations of strong-willed women. Yes, we are very proud of our voice that fills a room. So congratulations, you just pointed out the fact that you are easily intimidated by me.

And here's the part that gets me. You ever turned on a sitcom? Like have you ever sat down and turned on TV Land or TBS? And I would say most comedies have a leading male actor that just happens to speak extremely loud and is known for yelling, exaggerated facial expressions, and so forth. What about celebrities? Wouldn't you say that most men in the limelight have what... a loud voice. Yet, society glorifies these men that are loud and obnoxious but condemn women of the same.

I am very sorry that you are intimidated by me and feel so insecure that you would rather have me be silent. All that says about you is that your masculinity is very, very fragile. I mean, so what if my voice is more strong than yours? Men have had more advantages since birth, is my voice going to really change anything that much?

So let's just have a look at the data we have gathered here today, a list of men that speak louder than me!


1. Ray Barone "Everybody Loves Raymond"



So would you tell Raymond to lower his Italian dialect voice? I don't think so.


2. Archie Bunker "All in the Family"



I mean, he's literally known for yelling "Meat Head" and ranting about politics soo... your argument is invalid.


3. Michael Kelso "That '70s Show"



His catchprase is "Burn!!!" Obnoxious and probably isn't all there. But what? Everyone still loves him and is never told to "lower your voice, it offends people."


4. Alex Jones "Info Wars"


Do I even need to elaborate on this one? There are literally compilations of him yelling!


5. Rush Limbaugh "The Rush Limbaugh Show"



He's pretty loud.

*Hangs up phone.


6. Charlie Kelly "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia



Another fast, loud-talking man and no one bats an eye.


7. Fred Sanford "Sanford and Son"



His humor includes faking heart attacks and calling out to his deceased wife, extreme sarcasm, and arguing with his son.


So ladies, the next time a man tells you to quiet down because your voice is offending just please show him this. Because here we have a list of loud men that everyone loves (or loves to hate). Embrace your voice. If you are loud and powerful, then good! At least people are listening!

And men? Either get ear plugs or leave us alone!

Sincerely,

A girl that talks "too loud"

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.

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.
