Yesterday, February 22, President Trump withdrew the rule for a transgender person to use the bathroom of their choice. Trump is dehumanizing transgender people by not accepting them. The real question is, why did Trump do this? Trump is in a huge white house and transgender people have not done anything...

Our appearance, from the way we dress, to the way speak, to the way we act, to the way we represent ourselves, all have a say towards where we are headed in life. For one, it determines the types of people we attract in our lives. Think about the top five people you surround yourself with. Now ruminate ov...

Being sensitive is in no way a bad thing. Everyone has those little quirks that annoy them. But, there is a huge difference between being sensitive, and being unable to hear negativity regarding yourself without feeling attacked. This is most likely due to a problem rooting back to your abhorrent masculinity...

Alright, you’re smart. You can solve for “x” and find the escape velocity of a bullet. You know the right answers when others don’t. But, don’t brag about it. Don’t go on about the work being too easy for you. Don’t smirk at the sound of a wrong answer. Not only does feeding off of other’s...

Not everyone has the luxury of going out with their friends. My parents look at kids my age hanging out with friends. I look with envy. Why aren’t they home helping their parents? Those same kids do their parts at home and have more responsibilities than other kids my age. They go out instead of helping...

Why don’t you just go out? Why are you always home? I can’t go out. I am 17 and just started going out with my friends, even ones I’ve known since elementary school! I should’ve known when I was given a bike but was never taught to ride it, to go on my own. They don’t think I can make it on...

Religion Ban

I never understood why countries banned an entire religion. Even though America did not ban Jews in 1939, America sent them away and they all died. Now America may be doing it again with banning seven majority muslim countries. We need to remember that this country consists of many immigrants whom we...

As I sit down to write my 100 word rant, I’m immediately surged with a million creative ideas at once… but none of which I can take advantage of for my assignment. In moments like these, I realize how much my creativity is suppressed due to censorship. While freedom of the press is a constitutional...

Violent actions toward harmless animals makes my stomach churn. Why would anyone even think about laying a hand on a heartwarming dog or cat? They are there to love you unconditionally, but still some people abuse them. They are there for you through the ups and downs of life. Also, dogs are there for...

Ever since kindergarten, seniors have worked hard to attain their status. So it is only appropriate that they should not have to continue working after college acceptance. The stress of school should instead be replaced with college preparation. Grades no longer matter, yet seniors are still expected...

The Grading System Must Go

Dennis Nazarov, Assistant Sports Editor

Filed under 100 Word Rants

When I was a kid, I came home from school, opened my Spiderman backpack, and did my homework. The next day, I came into school and turned in the homework. The teacher graded it and I usually got a good grade. Now, with this new grading system, homework is not graded! Before, there was a lot of motivation...

You begin research for an assignment, but as soon as you click on what looks like a helpful website…NOPE. CONTENT BLOCKED. You were just trying to see how cells reproduce… but apparently that’s inappropriate. You were just trying to understand how the male sea horse gives birth… but apparently...
