Today, Emma Watson graduated from one of the most prestigious Ivy League colleges, Brown University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. She may be best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the movie adaptions of the Harry Potter series, but this young woman was determined to acquire an education—while simultaneously starring in 4 films (two of which were the last installments of the Harry Potter franchise). I just wanted to take a moment and praise Ms. Watson for her accomplishments. You don’t see her in the headlines for drug involvement or rehab or what have you. No. Some associations tied to her name include modeling, designing eco-friendly clothing, education, promoting positive body image, and supporting schools in Africa. To me, this is the epitome of a great role model not only for young girls but for anyone. To borrow a clichéd saying, she’s got a good head on her shoulders. Besides, English literature is pretty darn cool anyhow.

Rob Borbidge, former Premier of Queensland, put his political career on the line in order to take a stand for gun control in Australia.

Meanwhile, American politicians bow under the pressure put on them by the NRA.

"Look, there are Australians alive today because we took that action. I mean, how much is a life worth?"

Why does no one ever talk about rape victims and PTSD? Up until this Abnormal Psychology class, I’ve always been told that Combat was the major contributor to PTSD but damn, it’s 20% less than Rape. So please don’t tell rape victims to “get over it” or “its already over, it can’t change” because over 60% of rape victims have had their brain chemistry changed; PTSD is a mental disorder whether it is because of combat or because of rape.

This is SO incredibly important, you guys.

In all my life I will never find the words to express exactly how I feel about the absolutely heinous nature of rape and I will never stop being horrified that a lot of people don’t understand how terrible it is, but this graph might be a start.
