Gender roles aren’t all bad

Gender roles aren’t all bad

Filed under GENDER, OPINION, Special coverage

It seems to be the status in today’s society to defy tradition. Political movements and new legislation all seem to point toward “out with the old, in with the new.” However, I fear that traditional gender roles may be the baby that gets thrown out with the bathwater. People fear that ‘gender roles’ are cons...

A common conversation topic I often discuss with friends is that we should spend more time together. I love seeing my friends and hanging out with them. However, I have little free time to spend with them because of my busy schedule with yearbook, school, family and work. What keeps me busiest is my jo...

A multitude of things play into how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us. One often overlooked part is our gender and the roles that come with it. While deciding whether or not to conform to gender roles is a personal decision, it seems as if it’s a controversial issue with everybody holding th...

The past four years have not been a particularly good time for me and my family in Oklahoma. Ever since then-candidate Donald Trump started campaigning, our family grew divided. When I was in Oklahoma at that time, I grew anxious because I was afraid my mom and I would get caught up in a political de...

In the United States, we love our sports. Most families are watching the baseball game on Sunday afternoon, and the football game on Sunday night. Growing up every week my family watched KU basketball, I can remember the whole family being so interested and entertained. It was so fun to watch somethin...

 As many Mill Valley students look for an after school job, Sutera's has become a place where many have found work. The Italian restaurant located on Midland is less than five minutes from the school and is very close to other restaurants, such as Sombrero’s. Sutera's is set up with a large number of se...

As I reflect back on Blue Bomb during the last day of homecoming week or concerts I’ve been to, I’ve come to realize how impactful music is. Music can bring people together who don’t even know each other. People you’ve never talked to or acknowledge before somehow become your friend for a few...

After the announcement of a snow day on Monday, Nov. 26, like most students I made plans with a friend. Later in our day off, she said that she had to go home because she had basketball practice at the school. The fact that school was canceled, yet athletic practices weren’t, seemed to confirm an opinion I ...

I came to the realization as I was sitting in the commons of the University of Kansas Student Union. I had posted a photo of my friends and I at the Kansas Scholastic Press Association’s state contest on my Snapchat story, and as people swiped up to ask what we were there for, it finally clicked: ...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

After witnessing many seniors vote in this year’s midterm elections, I began to think about when you truly become an adult. Legally, one is an adult when they turn 18, but due to other laws and restrictions, that is not really the case. While I think the age to become an adult should not be 18, I do...

A few weeks ago, after putting the final touches on the foreign exchange page for the second issue of the JagWire, I decided to take a break and scroll through Facebook. While I was scrolling through my feed, I noticed that a peculiar ad had popped up. It advertised enrollment in a high school foreign exchan...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

During my time in high school, I have seen a split between the student population. Some students become the book-loving, “nerds” that appear to know every fact in the world, while others become the “popular” kids who tend to travel with a group of friends. It may appear now that the popular kids are ...
