Monthly bleeding is a woman's natural condition. Since it is nature, we should not shy away from it. The media needs to earn its red wings and start portraying periods for what they are: bloody messes.

Let student loans be a constant reminder that as college graduates, it is our obligation to use our knowledge to infiltrate the world. Everything that we've learned in college is not for naught. A college education has hopefully taught you how to think for yourself, or at least how to regurgitate what someone wants to hear to get what you want (like a good grade).
On Tuesday, UA held their annual Take Back the Night event which protested against and raised awareness of rape and violence against women. How many Take Back the Nights do we need to have before our streets are safe? I don't see those little blue emergency buttons that student ambassadors tote as the saving grace of our campus community stationed in any dark alleyways.
It's no secret that drugs are a huge problem in our country, especially in the Tucson community. Heroin appears to be quickly replacing methamphetamines as the city's main offender. Three students from Canyon del Oro (CDO) high school have died this year from heroin overdoses.
Many teenage girls in America are actively seeking pregnancy.
With the worsening economy, the idea of a global food crisis is on the rise. The problem is that people generally perceive the crisis to be a problem with production. Global warming, deforestation, and continual farming must be ruining the world's farmland, right? Yes, but that's not even the main problem. The issue is that big companies are controlling the world's food supplies, capitalizing on poverty. Staple foods like corn, milk, and eggs have seen staggering price increases thanks to America's ever-expanding capitalist hand (thanks NAFTA).
Last Monday I was stationed to do my 27 months of Peace Corps service in Azerbaijan, where the dominant religion is Islam. People have been very quick to judge the citizens of Azerbaijan, saying that they are probably anti-Semites and I must be careful not to reveal to anyone that I am Jewish. ""Why would the Peace Corps send you to a Muslim country? Don't they know that you're Jewish?"" one person asked me. They continued to talk to me as if my religion would stop me from going.
Several companies in China have begun to market a new ""smokeless"" cigarette. They claim that it is healthier than regular cigarettes because it emits no secondhand smoke. However, the cigarette is created to look like a normal cigarette, so it emits puffs of smoke. The electronic cigarette uses unnecessary resources, such as batteries, which most people do not correctly recycle and can leak mercury into landfills. If you have gotten to the point where you care enough about other people's health that you do not want to expose them to secondhand smoke, then you are just about ready to quit smoking.
The Modern Languages Building stands as an artless brick structure that is bisected by a breezeway. The exterior gives no inkling as to what is housed inside its walls.
Thousands of people tune in or attend games to watch UA's college gladiators out on the basketball court. They are local superheroes, doing what is considered the most masculine thing possible: excelling at sports. But laced within this seemingly completely manly activity are undeniably homoerotic elements.
MTV's ""The Girls of Hedsor Hall"" is yet another reality television show that focuses on fixing wayward girls. In the same vein as VH1's Charm School series, this show tries to fix girls by making them conform to ladylike stereotypes of proper behavior. One girl was chastised for telling the school's donor what she did for a living. ""You shouldn't want people to know that,"" replied the headmistress, who did not take into account that maybe the girl was proud of her employment status.
Our society deems it acceptable to lace advertisements and commercials with sexuality, such as the recent Valentine's Day gimmick by a teddy bear company that had girls cooing over a stuffed animal because it was ""so much bigger than I thought,"" and ""I could just kiss it and kiss it."" But when it comes to actually talking about sex and the purchase of sex, policy-makers get squeamish.
Massages are often underrated but they are actually superior to sex. I know it seems hard to believe, since you don't often see commercials with scantily clad models eating dripping cheeseburgers while receiving massages, but I guarantee you that if you whip out your massage skills this Valentine's Day, you will be a hit.
Our society has gone from the belief that Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) was completely fabricated by women to its classification as a disease. A syndrome, by definition, is something that indicates a disease and America is the only country that classifies the exacerbated effects of menstruation as such. PMS remains a misunderstood concept; something that the novelty website PMSbuddy.com does not want you to openly discuss.
After last year's Kanye West fiasco, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona decided to bring a safer artist to campus. Katy Perry was a smart choice on ASUA's part. She is famous enough to attract a crowd and will hopefully make our school some money. She also appears sane enough to not be paranoid that a riot will break out at her concert.
Walking into Toys ""R"" Us can be a horrifying experience. Take a step back from all the shiny toys and electronic keyboards that squeak ""A is for astronaut"" in an off-beat chorus, and you will see a highly segregated store. It is not the type of segregation that has been in the news lately; segregation by race. It is the all-too-prevalent, subtle segregation that our society seems to cling to: segregation by gender.
International opinion about America changed positively after Barack Obama was elected. Even though this change has come later than our country needed, it is about time that the United States had a leader that emphasized the population of our country that values a woman's opinion and a woman's right to choose. It is a step forward for both men and women that we have a president who will actually read the fine print and who is always looking out for his citizens. President-elect Obama was criticized because he voted against a bill to ban late-term abortions. But when pressed for his reasoning, he clarified that he voted against the bill because it did not include a stipulation that allowed for late-term abortions when they were to affect the mother's health. He has proven to be a detail-oriented man who will make decisions after critically thinking about them.
Everyone likes a free meal every once in a while.
The Kachina Lounge and Gallery has had some very interesting recent exhibitions, like Jill Renne-Smith's ""Forgotten Girls,"" which makes the current exhibit ""The Last Sin & The Mending Tree"" by Ernesto Trujillo comparatively lackluster. Simple prints of black ink splotches resemble Rorschach tests while what looks like wrought-iron squares checker an entire wall. The Rorschach tests are supposed to represent the sinful self that is dealing with turmoil. This makes sense, since the lines and swirls of the prints are confusing and very abstract. The square pieces may represent slabs of tree bark from ""The Mending Tree,"" which seems to be a mythical tree that will heal the sinful human soul. The exhibit has biblical and redemptive undertones, but only due to its name. Looking at the art you'd be hard-pressed to make any conjectures except that someone was doodling in an insane asylum after taking a Rorschach test.
There's a party going on at the Lionel Rombach Gallery and it's the coolest party you'll ever go to. Or so says artist Andrew Shuta. ""Part(ying): a mash up"" is the gallery's latest exhibition and it features work from multi-talented Andrew Shuta, a UA senior studying studio art, English and creative writing. The exhibit is an amalgamation of three parts.
