While there have been multiple successful movies that highlight LGBT characters and relationships, like Moonlight and Call Me by Your Name, these movies are typically aimed at older audiences with R ratings or more artistic audiences with showings only at arthouse theaters. In teen-aimed content, LGBT representation has a reputation for not going well, usually either having stereotypical one-sided characters or very sad storylines. In recent years this has been improving, but #buryyourgays is an undeniable trope. Some people think movies like Love, Simon aren’t necessary and that current teens won’t appreciate it but I disagree. Love, Simon provides semi-realistic positive content for teens, whether or not they’re gay, Love, Simon is a fun relatable story, and positive relatable role-models are never unneeded when you’re growing up.

In the fifth grade, my teacher had this program called Mock Trial, and that was the first time I had ever heard of it…. She chose a group of her students to be a part of that (mock tria...

Child marriage is not just a third-world problem

The United States typically isn’t the first thing to come to mind when one thinks about child marriage, especially since in most states the legal minimum age to marry is 18, yet between 2000 and 2010 about 248,000 children as young as ten were legally married in the US. Child marriage occurs legally in every state through two main loopholes.

“Thor: Ragnarok” diverged in style from the first two Thor movies, giving the character and his place in the MCU (the Marvel cinematic universe) the revitalization he needed. It was clear from the trailer that this was going to be a different Thor movie, but in some ways it looked too similar to “Guardians of t...

New bill would require Georgians to get a new prescription for controlled substances every five days

The new bill would require people with ADHD to see their doctor and get a new prescription every five days.

I sincerely thought it was fake. I was scrolling on the news app when I saw the headline, “Georgia bill would require new ADHD prescriptions every 5 days.” I thought maybe it was satire, until I noticed it was by CNN. The bill in question, bill 81 SB, was drafted by Sen. Renee Unterman in late ...
