To CBS, I have religiously followed Criminal Minds for fourteen seasons and I eagerly await season fifteen. You’ve also brought NCIS and Elementary into my life. To BBC, The Fall was thrilling and I watched every second. To Fox, thank you for Bones. I’ll admit that I will eat up any crime procedural and follow any show about psychopaths and criminals that you produce. As a psychology major at Cal Poly, however, I believe we must consider the consequences of dehumanizing and making monsters out of psychopaths, or those with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). I recently completed a “Quest Project” for English; the goal being to essentially ask a question and answer it. I asked: can psychopaths be rehabilitated? And if so, how should it be done? Through my research I have found...

My American dream I am writing this writing from the viewpoint of me, in the land of the brave and the home of the free. They say it's the greatest in all of the world, where pride in your culture makes flags wave unfurled. Our people a mix from cultures abroad, from the high Andes mountains to the flatlands of sod. We're yellow and white and brown and dark blue, we have different religions and some have none too. We war with each other when our leaders crave power, we sell all our time and our lives by the hour. We overextend from our bank account monies, to buy fancy homes and fine things for our honeys. We're taxed on the taxes on top of a tax, these aren't just assumptions, not speculation but facts! The irony is that we came to this land to escape...

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...
