#Repealthe19th? Are you kidding me?

Why Trump Fans Scare Me (Or Some Of Them At Least)

As recent polls have concluded, Hillary Clinton has an 83% chance of winning the Presidential Election, while Donald Trump stands at just under 15%. And as much as I'd love to rant about my personal opinions on the whole Donald and Hillary debate fiasco, I'm going to refrain.

However, I'm going to mention why Donald's presidential campaign has scared the sh*t out of me. For one, Trump is a popular man, he has a lot of supporters. Obviously he wouldn't have gotten as far as he has in this election if he didn't have the support, and votes, to be placed as the Republican top-runner.

But what truly scares me is the idea that all of his followers, all of his hundreds of thousands of fans and supporters, actually believe in his party platform. And I'm not talking about his ideas concerning ISIS or taxes or even immigration- I'm talking about his moral party platform.

A couple nights ago, while scrolling through Twitter, I saw a trending hashtag from Trump supporters after data was released claiming that Trump would win if only men were allowed to vote. So, #repealthe19th began trending.

Repeal. The. 19th. As in the 19th Amendment. As in the amendment that finally gives woman some equal power in politics. As in the Amendment that woman fought so hard for, that woman such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady starved and suffered for.

This hashtag started trending because a portion of (not all fans, but some) Trump supporters favor him so much, that they believe women not voting, would result in better election results. These Trump fans believe that women, who are still largely considered insuperior to men, who are still paid (on average)77 cents for every dollar a man makes, who are still fighting for equal rights, shouldn't have a say in the Presidential Election. These Trump supporters do not think women deserve the right to vote.

Are you f*cking kidding me? It is 2016, and I'm pretty sure it has long been established that it is unconstitutional, and unjust to deny voting rights to any adult citizen, regardless of race or gender.

That is how scary this Presidential Election is folks, not because Trump and Hillary are both considered crooked and liars. But because Trump supporters are so outrageous that they will say and defend any standpoint in order to put Donald Trump in the oval office. I've heard a lot of racist, crude, and unkind remarks from Trump supporters (and some positive ones at that, I definitely do not want to stereotype all of his supporters) but "Repeal the 19th" has got to be the most offensive.

And that is why this election is so scary.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
