A Powerpoint on Rape Kits

Hello Darlings,

I did quite a bit of research into a very troubling topic, rape kits. This Powerpoint does not contain graphic images but it does go into the step by step procedure of administering a kit on a basic level that could act as trigger for some. It has some good sources on the last side if you are looking for further information.

Since this was only a class assignment, I urge you to look further than I did because this topic is relevant and it needs to be addressed.

Please look it over and as always I would love feedback for all of you,

Next time I will try to be a little more cheery. Just think a new semester is starting, spring is only a few months away and with the right legislation, we can bring justice to those without voices. Petition your local government, make your voice heard. Just because our new commander and chief doesn’t  seem care, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t!

I love you all, be safe and be happy

Ana

Political Simplification

We have all seen those posts, the ones from our parents/aunts&uncles/older people in our lives. The posts that try to simplify being a Liberal for wanting communism or equality for everything regardless of effort. For instance the, you earn all your grades and Jane doesn’t even try so you should both get B- and split the difference. Its not about that its about me have an equal opportunity as Jane to have all the same opportunities. To have equal pay in equivalent positions, to have equal access to health care, to go to the store and be treated the same under theft policies. Neither of us should walk into a pubic building and be followed around because someone with more money or authority thinks we are going to walk out without paying. Neither of us should be turned away from a restaurant because of who we choice to bring as our date. We should both have an equal chance for success as well as failure.

It is not about giving free passes to those who do not care, it is about making sure those who wish to succeed have the means to do so.

Police Brutality

March 23rd, 2015

Are They Going to Far?

I want to go into the criminal justice department but before I do we need to have a discussion on police brutality.

First and foremost we need to accept that police brutality is a very real problem that not only needs to be identified but also needs a solution. Many police officers can be racially bias, this is due to years of jaded interactions with a few bad people. This is due to a psychological and sociological problem called generalization. Many blue collar neighborhoods have lighter skinned upper management  and darker skinned baseline work.

This is due to the unfair starting places I.E in larger cities they have fewer funds for more children and the result of this is less in-depth education. Inner cities lack computer labs therefore they are unable to teach necessary work skills. They also lack after-school programs such as sports and clubs. The result of this is instead of having a structured day after school gets out they have nothing to do and when children are not under supervision they tend to get into trouble. This is just the beginning of the problem.

I will continue to address this problem in the future post but for now, discuss what you think in the comments!

Let’s open the conversation.

Be nice to each other my lovelies

Be Carful What You Say

September 10th, 2014

Hateful YouTube Comments

Mean comments from a viewers perspective. Time to get serious because this is becoming a terrible trend within the online community.

For some reason people feel the need to post rude, disgusting things on Youtube videos. They make this content for your enjoyment whether it is their career and they provide for themselves and their family by it or they just do it because they have fun doing it they are putting themselves out there for your enjoyment. You don’t have to pay for most of the content on youtube, it is completely free to access if you have internet connection.

Some channels are sponsored so they will have a small plug within their video, sponsorship or brand deals are a tool that companies use if they feel that a youtuber fits within a demographic of potential customers. If the person running the channel wants to have these brand deals or sponsorships THAT IS THERE CHOICE!!! They have put in the work to get recognized and a company finds them fitting enough for their cliental to invest in the channels future success. If you don’t like brand deals then fast forward the video. Its ten to thirty seconds of the video I promise you wont be missing all that much!

HATE = BULLING!!! I don’t know if people realize this but leaving hate comments is cyberbullying! It is one thing to state your opinion and give constructive criticism. These channels want feedback other then GREAT VIDEO I LOVE YOU. You can say what you need to without put downs, derogatory language, or over all cruelty. If you wouldn’t want someone to say what you are writing to you don’t post it.

Be nice to each other,

Ana
