Activist, Advocate and Designer. I work as a Development Director for a city non-profit. I am heavily involved in the LGBTQ movement and childcare.

An idea worth spreading

Don't underestimate the power of intuitive, asthetic and consistant design. To push this to its greatest aspects is to be a masterful social, innovative, artistic and scientific wizard. Design is more then making things look good it is getting closer to understanding the human condition and the nature of the very conscience universe.

What, if anything, do you think young people can teach adults?
Yes, A perfect example of this is an increase amount of youth that are being hired on for non-profit organizations they range from staff to board executives and they do a extremly good job at being passionate and coming up with very fresh and out of the box ideas. Currenly some of the most sucessful local youth organization are 100% youth run. They do the grant writing, budgeting, promotions fundraising, logistics. All kids, form 12 to 18. Call me wierd but I always like to get my last final advice from a youth, because it is usually the most honest answer I will get.

Our modern societies still need feminism
I just want to make one general comment on us needing to make a CLEAR understanding on talking about "womens rights" and "feminist movement" because we automatically go toward womens history and current suffarage but some are not specifically speaking aobut feminism which in general has become the movement of gender equality which includes people borm male and female in this third wave more transgenders which is under a spectrum would see themselves a women or men in gender or "queer"as the more popular term. I think the lines will be blurred on the ideas of gender roles. Sexism is when we make the our decision based on SEX the biological apect as our conformity of gender roles. To be honest Gloria Steinam advance her "feminism belongs to the women" sexism when she began to see it wasn't as black and white as she thought it was and began to sepereate sex from gender.

This is great I just cam from a femmenist conference on the Waves, but I would also like to add that the strongest importance of the thrid wave is seperating the idea of sex and gender identity. You forgot to mention people like Sylvia Rivera and trans women who was a bit link between second and third wave. The thing that is most exciting is that we are learning form the thrid wave that the movement has become more inclusive. This movement is erasing the idea of gender roles which can free women and men. As we see more boys wanting to play with dolls and where dresses and more families being accepting to it (Look up the childrens book "my princess boy") and not think of there child any more or less because of it.

What do you guys say about bullying?
One aspect that is forgotten is that when it comes to bulling there are only victims. Many bullies suffer as well, and the more you get to know there situation the more you might be able to understand why. Though I think there should be punishment, I think we do go to the point of demonizing rather then actions to rectify the situation. For the bullied and the bully.

What do you guys say about bullying?
I read up on bulling specifically in Japan being tremendously horrible and pushes youth and young adults into suicide, suicide clubs (people who meet online commit suicide as a group) or become " hikikomori" which are people who shut themselve out from the real world. Many of these youth though have a unorthodox way of thinking that is frown apon adults and there peers, which is why the bulling is bad many adults will look the other way because they have a mind set of he is a freak and he deserves this treatment a good book called 'Shutting Out The Sun', really put light on bullying in Japan.
