A College Student’s Reflection: Please Men, Go To School

July 27, 2022

Written by Jacqueline Vontersch

As I glance around the room, I notice a young man against the wall, staring at me and my friends, and I felt the grasping in his gaze.

Their discussions added a domestic, social flavor – trans-athletes.

Written by: Ava Sekowski
 
After six weeks of testimony from Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, a unanimous decision was made — Depp won.
