Do Millennials Have A Bro Problem?

Howard Schweber | August 29, 2016 | Politics
The title of this post is already going to get me in trouble--anyone who tries to speak of "millennials" as an homogenous population is already engaging in a ridiculous level of reductionism.

Ken Toltz | August 25, 2016 | College
This week's UT-Austin protest was dubbed "cocks not glocks" with thousands of rubber dildos passed out and displayed by students to bring attention to the "absurdity" of allowing concealed guns on campus.

A Relationship Is Not A Skill

Lola Phoenix | August 25, 2016 | Queer Voices
Relationships are people deciding to commit to each other in whatever way commitment means to them. It's people deciding that, despite the emotional upheavals and flaws, there is something in that union that brings them something that's worth saving.

Sorry, Stanford, No Bourbon For You

Fred Minnick | August 25, 2016 | Politics
It's on us, as parents, educators and citizens, to lead and live by example. Moderate and legal alcohol consumption encouragement and practice would do far greater good than prohibition or a warning label.

An Open Letter To Managers Of Women

Jason Shen | August 26, 2016 | Women
We need to talk about her. That employee who has been at the organization for just a year or two and is already doing the work of someone several levels above her current pay band.

The Perception of Perfection on College Campuses

Stephanie R. Caudle | August 24, 2016 | College
When I was a little girl I loved looking in the mirror. I loved being able to admire the little girl who was standing in front of me. It was intriguing. If I had imperfections I didn't see them because I hadn't been trained to see them. In fact, as a little girl, everything I saw in the mirror was perfect. Oh what I would give to be a little girl again.
