If you follow pop culture and social media and don’t live under a rock then you’ve at least heard of the hit CW show “Jane the Virgin.” This mimic on a Telenovela series follows a young girl Jane, who has deep roots in her Hispanic background. She lives with her mother and Abuela in Miami, where she waitresses at an elaborate hotel. In the beginning of the series, she gets pregnant via in vitro. Oh, but here’s the kicker, she’s never had sex. Hence the virgin. Through the dramatic twists and turns that are seen as a comedic piece, Jane goes through all sorts of odd scenarios, family mishaps, and straight up entertainment that leaves fans wanting more. Here’s exactly why you need to drop everything and watch this series.

The leading males are very attractive.

Rafael who plays the baby-daddy and Michael who plays Jane’s serious boyfriend, are both total eye-candy. Everyone knows you have to have a little bit of sex appeal to keep a show successful, and they do just that. Michael who’s a cop (yum) and Rafael who’s a business owner of a very successful hotel, create a love triangle for a generous portion of the show. Like many forms of pop culture, you’re on one team or the other.

It’s both drama and comedy.

There’s not just one genre this series falls under. Throughout the mishaps and the incidents that happen one after the other, it’s hard to classify the series as just one complete genre. Each character brings their own comedic talent to the series, and the narrator (whom no one actually knows who it is) pokes fun at the way the series is portrayed. It’ll have you gasping one minute and laughing the next.

It’s a diverse series.

While every ethnicity is represented, one of the major roles is a woman who is lesbian and the reason that Jane has become pregnant. The entire series emphasizes the Hispanic culture and proves that it is not your average daytime or nighttime series that highlights the happenings of an All-American family.

It teaches you that family is all that matters.

Jane talks fondly about how her mother and Abuela are her best friends. Like many friendships, they go through fights and make-ups like many best friend relationships do. Throughout the men that have come and gone throughout their lives they are always each other’s biggest supporters and always have each other’s back at the end of the day. The premise of why Jane is a virgin still is because she has made a promise to her Abuela at a young age and out of respect and love has decided to keep that promise to honor those wishes.

The main star Gina Rodriguez won a Golden Globe after 9 episodes were aired.

Face it, even the experts out there think that this show is amazing! After the first nine episodes were aired, Gina Rodriguez received a Golden Globe for the category of “Best Actress in a TV Comedy.” If that doesn’t sell you on wanting to watch it I’m not sure what will.

Did I mention attractive men…?

Come on ladies, what more could you want out of an already addicting show with great plots throughout each episode. You get to see them shirtless quite a number of times too!

So the next time you’re flipping through Netflix in search of a series to binge on, try out “Jane the Virgin.” Or if you just need an excuse to procrastinate. This series will leave you at the edge of your seat and keep you wanting more. Luckily the series is still airing so there’s much more to come and to keep you satisfied.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

This past weekend the most famous music awards show of the year was held, The Grammy's. Some highlights of the show were Alicia Keys hosting, a performance by Dolly Parton along with some other powerful women, Lady Gaga winning for her title Shallow, and the tribute to Aretha Franklin.

An overall great show with some amazing winners, such as Childish Gambino who won two awards, one for record of the year and another for song of the year. Golden Hour took a home best album of the year and Dua Lipa won best new artist. Lady Gaga was awarded both Best Solo Pop Performance and Best Pop Duo with her partner Bradley Cooper.

To top off all of these highlights and well-deserved wins, the strong team of women that took the stage at the beginning of the night, stole the show. A powerful group including Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lady Gaga, and Michelle Obama started the show off on an amazing note. All together these women discussed the power of music and the effects that it had on their lives growing up, no matter where they came from.

Michelle Obama stated that "Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys. It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in," and her words were able to unite the audience from the start of the show.

This group of women who all came from different places and who were all able to use music in different ways to help them cope, and eventually led to their success truly relayed the message of why we have the Grammys and why we place such a high value on music in our society.
