The Problem With Girl Power

The failure of the girl power franchise comes from the idea that for a woman to have power she must be more like a man, able to punch hard and sword fight with ease. But by using another gender's strength as our target rejects and neglects all the strengths women already innately bear. Ironically, the qualities the girl power culture neglects to highlight are the qualities that could empower females the most.

The Girl Power movement we know conjures images of Wonder Woman, Powerpuff Girls, biceps decorated in pink, Rihanna rocking stilettos on a runway, The Spice Girls kickboxing.

7 Tips for Getting Off ADHD Stimulant Medication:I will tell you right now: You will feel sick and achey. You will feel depressed. You won't want to do anything. You will be mad at everyone and everything. You will crave your meds. Even with all this ahead of me, I felt prepared for it. I am lucky to have summers off which gave me plenty of time to adjust without the stress and responsibilities of work. But even if you are working full time while trying to stop ADHD meds, there's still ways of making it a more manageable experience.

Getting On and Off Vyvanse: My Personal Journey With ADHD Medication. Part 1

It wasn't until graduate school that I got an official diagnosis of ADHD. This more professional and prestigious environment drove me to see a psychiatrist. Again, I felt I was missing marks, but this time the marks were much bigger and more important.

The challenges I could once skirt or overcome before were now tougher and unavoidable in this rigorous academic environment.

I was in the fourth grade, the grade when everyone slowly switched from writing in pencil to pen. On the very last day of classes, I realized I still had not been given the “okay” to write in pen. My little heart fluttered nervously; I could feel my face grow hot as I imagined entering …

The term, rustic, was adopted by our National Park Service as way to identify their own particular design and architectural tendencies.

How to Become Hotter in Five Seconds (without surgery)

5 Ways to Become Hotter in Less Than 5 Seconds: To be hot in America today calls for a myriad of juxtapositions and strange inaccuracies. The media seems to want us to have big butts, big lips and big breasts, while we somehow simultaneously maintain a tiny waist, a thigh gap and no back fat. In a natural biological sense, this is an outright impossible feat.

So, the only option for “hotness” is surgery, according to pop culture. Otherwise, how else am I going to grow boobs and carve out a six pack at once? In a moment of trippy contemplation on the way home, it occurred to me that all these surgical trends are essentially bloody ways of turning us …
