Lily Geiser | Editor-In-Chief Body positivity is a huge movement right now. Don’t get me wrong — there are still plenty of issues out there with body image.

Opinion: Goodbye, Pink Tax

Shravani Page | Staff Writer Periods suck.  They are physical pain, emotional drainage, and just overall crap. Girls already have to deal with school, life, and oh — the period tax.

Opinion: Pop culture forgets its roots

Ann Vettikkal | Staff Writer Sometimes, it sounds like high schoolers are talking in another language. The slang we use and things we laugh about can be so referential that even one day of not scrolling through the explore page of Instagram can disconnect you from what is funny in the realm of internet humor.  Most highschool stereotypes are timeless.

Changing your goals is okay

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer Up until last year, I planned to be a STEM major. To be exact, I wanted to study astrophysics.

Opinion: Girls, support girls

Anusha Vadlamani | Staff Writer I’ve spent a lot of time at Mason High School. Enough time to memorize when each class starts and when each one ends. Enough time to realize that the PA system sometimes interrupts class during the most inopportune times. Way too much time realizing my locker is never going to open correctly on the first […]

Opinion: Bring Back Respect

Ria Parikh | Staff Writer Only in 2019 would a funeral be confused with a meet-and-greet. And, only in 2019, would there be written instructions that urge fans to stay away. Ethan and Grayson Dolan — known on YouTube as the Dolan Twins — have nearly 9 million subscribers to their channel. Recently, their father Sean Dolan passed away from […]
