Many women, including myself, admire those strong and persistent suffragettes who fought for the equal rights of men and women. A chill is sent down my spine, thinking of Susan B. Anthony, boldly proclaiming the then radical declaration that, “there never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.” Unfortunately, there are many women who live beneath their voting privilege and opt not to engage in civic duties.

Bryce Tune, a student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, wants to win elections someday. But he has a problem: his core beliefs are a complex mix of conservative and liberal values.

Prop. 2 ‘not the right answer,’ but church leaders urge Utah Legislature to legalize medical marijuana by year’s end
Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints want the Utah Legislature to legalize medical marijuana in a special session by the end of 2018.

When presented with facts, ad-hominem attacks follow. My concern for my child, and his confusion over Alex-who-is-now-Alice, is dismissed. The discussion devolves into what a terrible person I am because I do not tow the party line. What frustrates me even more is that I am not allowed to be unsettled. I am not allowed to feel horror by what pediatricians are required to prescribe to children that experience gender dysphoria. Surely we can reach some common ground.
