Masculinity vs.Feminism

There are movements in the world,

Ones for slavery,

Genders, Water, Food and Life,

Rights have been fought for,

And against,

Our histories splattered with the inks of movements,

Wether revolutionary or not,

They prevail,

Feminism,

The movement for women’s rights,

However,

The men’s rights have been outshadowed,

Outdated,

Not the Men’s Rights Movement,

But Masculinity,

What about the sterotypes surrounding teenagers in the media?

Buff Prince Charming,

Always rescuing the damesels,

But, who saves the guys?

Not all guys are buff, strong or manly…

Some are smart, ambitious, or skinny,

We have to realize that with Feminism comes Masculinity,

There are sterotypes just waiting to be smashed on the male side,

That the man has to care for the women,

That the man has to earn wages,

That boys don’t cry even in need,

That boys aren’t allowed to backdown,

And that they can’t play with dolls,

Nor the female-related items,

Lipstick is for all,

Whoever wants it,

Dolls are for all,

Art is for all,

Science is for all,

and both genders should be taken care of,

By the opposite side,

In media.

Time

Time,

What does it mean?

Numbers on a clock?

The gray hairs on your scalp?

The magazine that cleverly calls itself time?

What ever it is,

It moves fast,

Compare to a stopwatch, a clock, a calendar, your school years,

And stop and think of all the days lost,

Time does go fast,

Faster, just because you lived through that,

It might have been slow,

Torturous at first,

But look back and realize how far we’ve come,

And the beauty of time.

 

 

Rain

The sky was just light,

Then it darkened and let out a wail,

Suddenly,

Pouring rain hit the ground,

I hear it in the gutters,

And think,

It’s only September!

Where’s the sun,

It’s typical in this area,

Wet Raincouver is what they say,

Rain, rain, rain…

Vancouverites must be so enduring of these downfalls,

Fresh smelling rain,

Umbrellas in water bottle holders,

Water-proof shoes,

All the rage,

Beautiful rain in lit up skies.

Poo~Pourri

Who would have ever thought of this?

On the quest to rid the world of bathroom scents,

The founder developed an instant way to rid thyself,

Of the lingering disgust that a loo brings,

Stink,

Waste,

Otherwise poo,

By inventing Poo~Pourri,

A magical blend of essential oils and claimed magic,

In many different scents,

All you have to do is:

Spray,

No.2,

Then VIOLA!,

A wonderful smellling throne emerges from the stink,

As easy as pie,

Completely safe for you and the planet,

Not tested on animals,

With snazzy artwork and amazing FAQ’s,

We loved the unicorn,

And Poo~La~La!

“SOME scientists say…,”

I have recently relived one of my memories concerning accurate information on websites. My Grade. 7 Power Info teacher, gave us a sheet with a sample blog post that used what I find to be misleading and vague: some scientists. When I asked about that”some scientists”, because I did not find it wrong, she said something about you know, how that “some” refers to a group or two, not exactly a large group of people verifying information, right? Exactly, so apparently the correct way is to say “scientists”. That is even more misleading than “some scientists”.   Continue reading ““SOME scientists say…,””
