My Education: A Right, Not A Privilege

Education is my right. It is your right. It is not a privilege. Every time someone decides education is theirs to administer or judge, stand up against them. When they say those things, they negate everyone’s ability to be educated to the standards they wish to be educated.


The rhetoric of hair

I am not my hair, but at the same time, I am. No amount of shaving can deny the fact that I was born hairy, regardless of my gender identity. No matter how much I cover it up, it does not take away the fact that I feel it is a problem. All of these ideas boil down to one collective thing: hair is political because of conformity being seen as a means to erase or cover up identity.
