You're Not 'Pimping'

Rachel Mellicker | Posted 07.07.2016 | Teen
Rachel Mellicker

I see prom pictures described as "pimping." I see birthday posts telling someone to "keep pimping." I hear about students going to "pimp and hoe" parties. This is glamorizing and making light of an industry that violates human rights in every way.

It's finally happened, which is a good and important thing. Private jokes and cackling fits bode well for the solid lifelong sibling relationship my husband and I had envisioned for them. What I didn't anticipate was how bro-ish the whole situation would get.

Annabel Monaghan | Posted 06.23.2016 | Parents
Annabel Monaghan

A year ago, a friend of mine whose child had just graduated from high school suggested I write an article about this big milestone. I thought about it and decided to wait. It would have been like writing a guidebook about Paris based on internet research, without actually going there and seeing the light, smelling the bread. A year later, my son has just graduated from high school. Let's just say I've seen the light. I assume that's why there are tears in my eyes all the time.

Grace Wong | Posted 06.22.2016 | College
Grace Wong

A pair of shoes can showcase your individual style, and when you go shoe shopping you usually gravitate towards something that matches your style. But it's also awesome to take risks and try new things. A college near home can offer a community you already know, and being close to family is appealing. But going somewhere completely new and faraway is just as exciting.

Isn't it strange that it's second nature to pose yourself and monitor your body every couple of seconds as if you were meant to be a nice object to be looked at approvingly? I've only fairly recently found that these things aren't and shouldn't be second nature.

What My Son Needs To Know About Brock Turner And Rape Culture

Abby King | Posted 06.15.2016 | Parents
Abby King

You've heard the assailant was a swimmer. That has nothing to do with the rape he committed. Brock Turner is a rapist who can swim well. He and his defenders are trying to qualify his crime, trying to limit the meaning of his certain rape by letting us know that he's an athlete. Don't pay it any attention. Rape is rape.
