Recently the debate of what is truly ethical under capitalism has become somewhat of a hot button topic. Perhaps this Marxist idea has become popular due to the show “The Good Place,” in which the underlying topic of it all is that people’s actions become highly complicated because of “the exploitative systems in which we work and live.” Meaning, due to the way products and corporations source and execute policy in unethical ways, our consumption of said product will ultimately be unethical as well.

A lot of people expect you to know where you're going, especially when you're entering college or a new phase in life. From around the age of 17, we are all supposed to know who we are, what we want to do and how we are going to do it. That is highly unrealistic.
Recently, USC’s new president Bob Caslen said, “If you're going to be an effective leader, you have to have the humility to listen and to understand across the entire spectrum of thought,” and with his newfound position at the university, I hope he truly does have humility.
South Carolina is one of the only states that still does not allow the promotion of homosexuality in a classroom setting, and while that isn’t something that is strongly enforced, it is definitely something I wish I knew about before coming to USC.
From “Queer Eye” to “Queer as Folk,” the “Q” in LGBTQ+ has started to be reclaimed by the community.
Every June, more companies come out with Pride campaigns. From social media to granola bars, it seems like everyone thinks being gay is something they can capitalize on without actually supporting.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Since then, there have been a lot of milestones for the LGBTQ+ community, but there are still many things that make it scary and dangerous for people to come out.
Pride is not a party for you to crash.
College students are not OK.
Started in early 2018, March For Our Lives is an activist organization led by students and survivors of the Parkland, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who advocate for gun reform in America. Last year, the march was one for the history books, but the same cannot be said for 2019.
Charlie Kirk founded the nonprofit Turning Point USA on June 5, 2012. Its mission statement, as defined by its official website, is to “identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government."
I don’t think I ever understood what catcalling was until I came to USC.
I always think about the movie moments in my life. Little blips of time covered in a vignette stored in my mind based on silly clichés and terrible teen dramas.
In the era of new-age witchcraft and manic pixie dream girls, horoscopes are making a comeback.
Self care — defined by PsychCentral as “any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health” — has become quite the trend over the past few years. While many Tumblr blogs would like to convince you that face masks and bubble baths will fix all your problems, they are pretty far off.
In the strange, cynical world we live in, it is easy to get lost in the angst surrounding Valentine’s Day. However, even if it is just a holiday made to exploit human relationships for corporate gain, it also can be pretty beautiful, and people really want to share with the world how beautiful their relationships are.
The idea of pain should not be considered poetic, period. However, there is always a need for three-dimensional characters and emotions, even if the mere subject of agony should not come with a pillow of romance. In the same sense, though, the idea that artists have to be sad in order to make quality content has always frustrated me. I hate that when you tell someone that you are an artist they immediately stereotype you as struggling.
I am scared to hold my girlfriend’s hand in public. For years, I have seen people pull off multi-colored pins and rainbow bracelets after pride in order to stay safe on their rides home, and while the world has become much more friendly towards the LGBTQ+ community, a lot of us still live in fear.
In today’s society it is easy to claim someone is being “too sensitive” or a “special snowflake” in response to them calling out your blatant discrimination that you have disguised as “jokes.” However, when it comes down to it, some folks just don't have a good sense of humor.
It is strange what can change in just ten years.
