When Women Work Together!

Written by Jenn Sadai I recently joined a local group of female entrepreneurs and I am beyond impressed by what they’ve already accomplished. In just a few short months, the organizer has united over 200 women from a variety of industries using only social media and her personal connections. She hosted an informal social at her house and has even planned an amazing sales opportunity for all group members at a local club. More importantly, she’s created an environment where {Read More}

From our climates, to landscape, to bodies of water, every aspect of our planet is unique. People are the most diverse beings on earth.

Does Trump Really Support The LGBTQ+ Community?

Written by Kristen Costa On November 8th (leading into November 9th), the world watched as Donald Trump was announced to be the 45th President of the United States. Since Trump’s ascension to President, the LGBTQ community has not been given any reason to believe that their worry hasn’t been warranted. In fact, it is just the opposite. Only hours after Trump’s inauguration, the LGBTQ page, amongst others, was removed from The White House website. Hopefully not an omen of what {Read More}

There’s No Excuse For Abuse

Written by Jenn Sadai Abuse comes in many forms, from many sources and most often, both the abuser and the victim find a way to justify it. I made up a lot of excuses for the way my ex treated me. He had a hard life; he struggled with mental illness, and didn’t mean to do the things he did. Deep down he was a good guy who couldn’t control his response to all the hardships in his life. He {Read More}

Dear Abuser, Or I Could Say Mom

Written by Anonymous For years I wondered what would I say to the woman who gave birth to me if I ever had the chance to release my feelings and emotions completely. What would I say to the biggest bully in my world. Would I yell and scream? Probably not, because that is what she did for years. I prefer normal and calm conversation, but by association, I did fall into that for a while years back. I tried my {Read More}

Cyber Bullying In Fandoms

Written By Vicki Tiller Being part of an online community is great, especially when you share the love of a particular thing and this can be anything from a television show, film, musical band, book or just about anything really. I am part of a fandom (a community brought about by the shared love of something especially in TV, music and film) who all shared the love of a particular television programme. The rewards for being part of that fandom {Read More}

I Was Sexually Assaulted, And I Am Not Afraid

Written by Anonymous We all have experiences throughout our lives, but sometimes we have ones that we never tell to a single soul. It might be rare, but it happens. As much as we can have a support system, there are always secrets. One in particular is weighing on me lately to share in detail. What sparked me to finally come out was the fact that I see so many people on social media making light of such a serious {Read More}

Fear & Violence In America

Written by Jenn Sadai As a Canadian who’s never owned or seen a gun in person, I’m baffled by the gun culture in America. The only people I personally know who own guns are either police officers or hunters. The thought of owning a gun for personal protection seems extreme and unnecessary. In the United States, there is said to be more guns than there are people (Washington Post, 2015/10/05) and the main purpose for gun ownership is self-defense. A {Read More}

I Just Need To Pee!

Written by Jenn Sadai Public fear over allowing transgender individuals to use the washroom they identify with is completely unfounded. In fact, according to the Human Rights Campaign, the American Civil Liberties Union and National Center for Transgender Equality, there is no statistical evidence of Transgender individuals participating in any harassment or violence in public washrooms. On the other hand, there are many reported incidents of transgender people being physically and sexually assaulted in public washrooms. Throughout history, homosexual and {Read More}
