Supreme Court Backs Transgender Military Banby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
On Tuesday, The Supreme court voted on Trump’s infamous transgender military ban. The vote resulted in 5/4, favouring Trump. Although the vote is not mandated, it opens up the opportunity for the military to enforce the ban. In other words, the military now has free reign to exclude trans people from their ranks. This comes […]
“These Are Animals”: A Look Into Who Is Really Coming Over The Borderby Dan Bennett
At this point in the presidency, we should no longer be shocked. We should no longer be asking “How can he say this?” or “How can he get away with this?” The answer doesn’t matter how. It only matter that he does say this, he can get away with this, and he will continue to […]

A Blue Apronby Dan Bennett
On February 12th, Trump’s Administration proposed to change roughly 40% of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program’s benefits (SNAP).

Hypocrisy of Hate: Why America Rejecting Immigrants is Paradoxicalby Tolu Martins

Puritans originally moved to the new-found land to redeem religious freedom. Fast-forwarding a few centuries later; during the Obama era, Democrats put together a program for undocumented immigrants that […]

Trumps Hates Women and Planned Parenthoodby Tolu Martins
Your president has only gone and done it again!

Memes, Madness, and Moggby Ellen Pickett
They say politics is “showbusiness for ugly people”: arguably a reasonably harsh assessment. However, it definitely taps into the scope for personality cults to spring up in politics: if you’re willing to lay yourself and your beliefs on the line to the bitter end, chances are you’ve got some pretty strong convictions. From the Jeremy Corbyn […]
Melania Is Not Your New Feminist Icon
An Era of Volatilityby Ella NevillI recently attended a debate at the University of London on global politics and world leaders. Professor Stephen Chan one of the speakers (and a fascinating person altogether), this made a comment that has stuck with me ever since I first heard it: what is waiting for us in the future is unclear, but what is evident is that we are about to enter “an era of volatility”.
What Trump’s 59 Missile Salute Means for the Worldby Tiff Jai
On Thursday President Donald Trump ordered that 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles be aimed to directly attack the military site to blame for the chemical attacks that were carried out against the Syrian population. This was a dramatic move for President Trump and it is causing a lot of public concern. Many Americans are feeling tensions with Syria being a nation backed by Russia, patient and with the consistently questionable status of the Trump Administration. However, and the real question is why did the President decide to use such an aggressive approach in dealing with the nation?
Growing Up White, Privileged and Colorblindby Maddie Knight
Khloe Kardashian sits in front of a green screen, story hair and make-up done perfectly, in the ‘diary’ section of her family’s TV series, she open’s her mouth, and once again I hear ‘it’s causing me major anxiety’, or something similar to that. All I can think, is that it is this kind of normalising of a mental health issue that ensured that I didn’t go to the doctors for a year and a half after I started thinking that my sadness, obsessive behaviours and nervousness were above a line which enabled me to live a normal life.
A Letter to My Trump Supporting Friendsby Nia Quinn
My Trump Supporting Friends,
Up until this past election, I always thought losing friendships strictly from politics was the most idiotic thing. I mean not everyone we encounter is going to have the same viewpoint as us. That would be rather boring if you ask me. I love that I can debate with y’all for hours (literally) about any given topic because it not only challenges my views but also allows me to see it from a different perspective. And even though by the end, I’m often left with a headache and a lot of frustration, the idea of two people being so passionate about something has a cool kind of beauty to it. However, this past presidential election is much different than any other. The amount of arguments I’ve gotten into is endless, and there’s no telling how many twitter followers I’ve lost (and am still losing) from my daily anti-Trump tweets.
