  • African American Equality Essay

    Equality is something that is viewed as one of the main foundations that America was built on, yet it also is one of the core struggles that the U.S. has had to deal with over time.

Equality is the ability to have every person treated as an equal, for every person to have…

  • Ex-Mormon Marriage Case Study

    I think that something a lot of ex-Mormons struggle with is realizing that yes, the LDS church can do some good. No organization is entirely good or entirely bad. And while I'm not going to be running to rejoin the church, its welfare model - which is community oriented and offers a strong sense of accountability - is worth looking at. Beyond that, a lot of what McArdle gets right are uncomfortable topics that people wish to avoid, as discussing them can get one labeled misogynist or racist. The…

  • Apollo's Aeschylus Attitudes Towards Women

    (Rant warning: I spent the day talking about Mormon fundamentalism with my US Politics & Religion class and how a “woman’s purpose” was to bear children. So, this was a wild ride full of frustration.) The tone that Aeschylus uses towards women was not unexpected, but I still was not ready for Orestes and Apollo to be so direct with their misogyny.
