In response to "GSA Reactions" I was deeply saddened and frustrated by the article on GSA Reactions because it clearly showed that there is still a lot of ignorance about the LGBT+ community at Marquette. Ignorance doesn't make you a bad person, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't strive to be be...

In response to "Intimacy inspires vulnerability". Girls are weird. They fall head-over-heels talking about “vulnerability,” “emotions,” and other weird topics like the “Vulnerability inspires intimacy.” Here’s the thing: you all get these weird notions from stupid Hollywood movies that c...

In response to "Relax, reflex on college apps" I have to say that some people don’t really have to focus on college applications—like me. I only applied to Mizzou, so the main application was simple and took only 20 minutes. Although applying for scholarships may take more time, most students may not ...

In response to  "The Racial Reality" This is a real issue that must be addressed especially in a school that claims to be “progressive”. Out of all the people that were interviewed, all of them believe that diversity is vital but there doesn’t seem to be any plans to change the racial breakd...

In response to last month’s article on athlete dress codes, I wholeheartedly agree that MHS has taken an enormous step backward compared to other area high schools. Even at Castlewood State Park, other local high schools such as Parkway South have been seen to maintain the male dress code that MHS...

Your article titled “Stop the Stigma” made me really proud to go to a school where our newspaper is doing something about a huge issue within our school and within our country. I think that it is so important to spread awareness about suicide and mental disorders. As a person who has been affected...

Letter to the Editor: Gen Z is not “apathetic”

In response to “Make room for Gen Z” I think that a key trait of Gen Z is that they don’t reject the desire for change shared with other generations, but seek to combat it through nontraditional means, as they have identified the constant infighting and entrenched interests of the government as...

Letter to the Editor: Study hall should allow for more freedom

In regards to the article “Study Hall Changes” I agree students should be given more freedom during their STUDYING period. With the school being so strict on an hour that’s supposed to be relaxing and helpful, it just ends up leaving more stress and anxiousness. According to The U.S. Department...

Regarding the women’s wage gap

Filed under Letters to the Editor

Feminists like to claim that women have been oppressed for years due to a gap in wages. In reality, the reason is due to personal choice, not because employers are discriminating against women. An employer has to measure opportunity cost when hiring someone, especially a woman who is married and is planning...

Rams would do better in STL

Mr. Bayless has hit the nail right on the head here. St. Louisans are the best sports fans not just for baseball and hockey, but also football. The St. Louis Rams are held hostage by Stan Kroenke and nobody can do anything about it. But moving doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense, and a billionaire...
