Hi Pewds, I have been thinking for some time of writing something serious that you can read, although with the strong content of memes and sarcasm that characterizes the channel, it is difficult to find a way to keep a message true to its content. So I will simply limit myself to writing this open letter, without really knowing if it will ever be read. First of all I have to clarify that this is not an attack, or bullying, a questioning maybe. But not from the point of view of a company that seeks to clickbait with your name or a media source that seeks to fill an agenda with what will feed their ecosystem. I want to do it from the point of view of someone who has followed your channel for about four or five years, who applauded and respected the moment you decided to turn the...

Dear popular crowd of Central High, Yea, I'm the new girl. Yes I see your sideways glances towards me. Little do you know that I dream of being like you. I wanna be popular. I dress like you, have a genuine personality, but you want nothing to do with me. Why? I know I'm new to your school and I have to build my way up, but can I at least have a chance? I'm not used to a big high school like yours and I don't know how to get around here. Who am I supposed to talk who am I supposed to avoid? I'm having a hard time here and all I ever wished for was to be popular. I don't see myself fitting in with anyone else. I am not like the cliques here and no one seems to want to accept me in. Is there anything I can do? I wanna be apart of something. I wanna go to parties and cheer at...

The firestorm surrounding remarks tweeted by the Creative Writing professor at Fresno State, Randa Jarrar, speaks to multiple issues in our current society. As the debates regarding “what should be done” about her hateful words directed at Barbara Bush (specifically) and the Bush family (as a whole) fly across the Internet, our First Amendment right to the freedom of speech is once again being publically argued. Many (it seems) in this current culture, believe that the First Amendment affords us the right to “say anything we want . . . about anyone we want . . . at any time we want” without any repercussions or consequences. But is this what the First Amendment really guarantees us as U.S. citizens? Here is the actual text of the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law...

First . . . re-read her words: “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. I’m happy the witch is dead. Can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million Iraqis have. Byyyeeeeeee.” Did you see it? “Raised a war criminal.” “Fall to their demise the way 1.5 million Iraqis have.” Apparently, the Bush family is solely responsible for all the deaths in Iraq (I presume due to the Gulf War and the War on Terrorism). But why just Iraq? Why isn’t she just as mad at Clinton for all the deaths in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and the Sudan? This appears to be nothing more than a person - who teaches CREATIVE WRITING - having an opinion based on the belief that we should “just leave certain...

Sense of humor can often be a funny thing; but this particular story is about a sense of humor failure and as such, less hilarious. Even at the age of 5 or 10 or 15, such a stunt would have seemed gimmicky. After crossing 40, it might be forgivable - at best - but forgotten, that seems nothing short of fantastical. Frieha Altaf, a fashion model and entrepreneur, tells an Instagram tale, which offers an eerily fitting metaphor for a stereotype that has plagued Pakistanis for decades - one that many of us have been trying desperately to rid ourselves and our nation of – and then a story like this appears and undoes all the progress made so far: that is, the popular belief that we are a land of self-proclaimed “judges”, who revel in squandering a large part of our lives offering pro-bono...

Dear chetan bhagat, First of all if you have forgotten who you are then let me remind you once. You are writer, an influencer who has the power to influence ppl with your thoughts and ideas. I do feel how hurt you must over crackers banning issue bcs not only children, we even youngsters cannot think of diwali without crackers. But are really out of your mind or you have just forgot about the riots happening in India bcs of religious differences. Do you have any idea how your comparing cracker ban to ban on muharamm can make conflicts. You must be right in banning the bloodshed on muharamm. But why the hell are you dragging this issue now. Is it necessary. I repeat again that you are an influencer so instead of dividing the nation by comparing two religious festivals try something...

NOTE : The following article is a reflection of my own ideas regarding feminism today. Although it might sound generalized, it is only based on the behavior I have observed. Anybody agreeing/disagreeing is free to provide feedback through comments. Since a few days now, I had been observing the rising 'obsession' over feminism. It struck me this morning, when I picked the newspaper only to come across an article promoting just that. I was so disturbed, that I just abandoned the newspaper altogether. I thought of putting this rage to some use and writing about it. I am not sure if a lot of people think this way though. Most people today are focusing and giving much thought to the idea of feminism. This is a result of many years of suppression of women in society. They were...

"Light n***a, dark n***a, faux n***a, real n***a, poor n***a, rich n***a, house n***a, field n***a...still n***a". The hook to the recent popular and controversial "The Story of OJ" song by rap megastar Jay-Z may have ruffled a few feathers with the overuse of the "N word" ,a Hip Hop term of endearment, or one that is culturally insensitive(depending on who you ask), but his message was very clear throughout the song. There are many different variations of African American people, but at the end of the day we are all BLACK. Since that's the case one would think African American would be a united force fighting their way through the struggles of being black in America in 2017 right? Wrong. We definitely know how to stick together for things such as Black Lives Matter and various...

About two weeks or so ago, everyone started to rave about a show on Netflix called "13 Reasons Why", which is essentially about a teenager who commits suicide and takes you through her reasoning and why she did it. I read the book which was very good, I am currently watching the Netflix series and am impressed at how well it is mirroring the book. However, with the new show surfacing comes a lot of critiquing, memes, jokes, you name it. This is NOT something to joke about. Depression and suicide are real, it is not just something that happens in movies are books. Depression takes lives with no turning back. As a woman who suffers from depression, it really upsets me seeing ignorant memes and comments on Facebook about how people are so dramatic and "Welcome to your tape". It doesn...
