Occupy San Diego

On Saturday I had the wonderful experience of attending a rally called Occupy San Diego. There were several great speakers who touched on a myriad of topics including our current economy, war and human rights. My favorite speakers were the Veterans for Peace and a young man who spoke of how we must make changes at home before we can change the system. He met with the least applause, but he had the best message of how our current economy has a lot more to do with us, instead of just blaming the big greedy man/woman in the Manhattan penthouse who is really just giving us what we want and making billions of dollars off of what we pay to them.
BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT HOW WE SPEND(VOTE) WITH OUR DOLLARS!
I also really enjoyed all the people, the signs and the small children that were all having a great time.

Quit Stereotyping Me!

Once again women are under attack for being smart and more of American youth are getting messages that education is stupid. The issue today is clothing with sexist messages used to sell clothing. Could these messages be partly to blame for our nation falling behind the education of other countries? Absolutely.When you hear a message over and over again it becomes part of your life and will form your opinions whether good or bad!

Want to do something? You can sign this petition or at the very least use it to start a conversation. The only real positive change comes from people deciding not to put up with negativity anywhere.

I would be just as outraged over a guys shirt that said “Sensitive is Stupid” or “Real Men Hate Pink”. There is no reason to perpetuate gender stereotypes that make people feel bad because they like something that is mainstream!

What was the last sexist message you absorbed and how did it affect you?
