Honestly when I agreed to this class at the end of last year I used to be kind of pumped up about it. While i heard the name of the class I think it would be very interesting and give me a new point of view on the universe and my place in it.

It blows my mind that women can be rejected education because they are showing their particular shoulders. Just how can that be important than education and why are boys not penalized for...
