About Me:I am a Political Science student and activist from Kansas City. I have participated in debate and forensics since my Freshman year of High School, however I have been in love with history and politics since I was little. I wear the label of "Democratic Socialist" with pride and I am not afraid to profess on my views.
Activities:Activism Running Violin Blogging Debate
Beliefs:I am a progressive and I am a proud democratic socialist. Sometimes I have called myself a left-wing social democrat or an anti-capitalist social democrat at times. I am also a fervent believer in Christian Socialism, and I believe that it was my Catholic faith that turned me towards democratic socialism. My partisan description is that of a Watermelon, I am Green (Green Party) on the outside and Red (socialist) on the inside.

Let us assume that by transgender people we mean girls "feeling" they're boys. The BSA - BOY Scouts of America - is specifically for boys. Yes, there have been girls in it before, but that was either cub scout leaders or CO-ED/venture groups. I know because I'm in one.

That does nothing. It's just like som...

I know what you're thinking. I sound crazy. Why on earth with me, a girl wish that feminism wasn't born in the first place. Let me tell you why.

If you put a label on something to favor one side expect it to bite society right back in the b...
