Kate Middleton Dares to Appear in Public With a Post-Pregnancy Belly by Allie Jones
Okay, now I have a few things to say about the title and opening sentence, well the entirely lead. Now, I am no Professional Journalist heck I don’t think I can really be considered a Journalist but I need to explain how wrong this is.
The article, which is located here, is well-put together minus the lead and title of this story. First of all, when did it become a shameful thing to have a post-pregnancy belly? If anything it should be beautiful and extraordinary. It shows that the woman was strong enough to carry a human life for nine months. Nine months with out-of-control hormones and painful contractions. Pregnancy alone is beautiful so why isn’t the post-belly? Hmm?
The Lead, oh my. I cant exactly place my feelings for this. “According to The Associated Press, Kate Middleton made the bold, applause-worthy choice to appear in public before her post-pregnancy belly went back to normal.”. Bold, applause-worthy. Bold, applause-worthy. Walking out in public with a post-pregnancy belly is not a bold action; it’s normal. Who cares if she is a celebrity or a well known human being?
A few months back all you would hear about was the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary that killed 26 children and adults. It was on the news, in the newspaper and all over social networking sites. With that outburst out everyone was paying close mind to such a thing that hasn’t happened in the last ‘decade’, as some students at Creekview have put it, but I was on the internet searching for stories to catch up on and I saw a shooting category and in the category there were ten other stories I had never even heard about.
Clackamas Town Center, a gunman killed two people and wounded a third while the holiday shopping spree occurred back in 2012. At St. Vincent’s Hospital wounding three people, an officer and two employees. In April 2007 a student at Virginia Tech 32 people were shot by a student on campus.
There are a few stories that I have yet to hear about on the news, or social networking sites. Guaranteed these shootings happened years ago but take a look at the one in April of 2007, thirty-two students were killed by one of their own peers. What’s the difference between twenty-six kids/adults and thirty-two college students? Nothing. These should be mentioned because it shows that it’s wrong to kill anybody not just elementary students and teachers.
The Columbine shooting back in 1999 got a lot of attention because it was one of the first shootings to have occurred at a school but only nineteen people were killed. I don’t know if they base the ‘killer’ stories by how gruesome the shootings re or by the body count but if anything some of these stories that I never really heard about should ave been mentioned, even if it wasn’t around Texas or in another country.
Shootings are a big deal and most aren’t often shown. It really only gets attention if it takes place in a school and children are dying but when in reality most stories should be heard.
I am pretty sure I’ve talked about this before but I can’t sweat it enough and all of this work I have to do for school. At this moment I have to learn the lines of Juliet in Act IV and perform them on Tuesday or Wednesday when I just got the assignment last week on Thursday, I have to write up a character analysis for over ten characters for theatre, I have to finish a twenty page packet for Biology as a test grade and I also have to study for EOC’s. This is just too much work. Can’t teachers know we have more than one class and we do have EOC’s this week but they still expect so darn much out of us?! GAH. Mini rant, gotta go work.
the guy gets the glory the more he can score while the girl can do the same yet you call her a whore.

Okay, I know it’s much of a topic but it has to be written about and Mrs. Waters i sincerely apologize for the curse word above in the block quotes but this is to state my opinion on a serious topic that has been going on for generations.
Woman have always been viewed as a minority when it comes to being put next to a man. I know that sentence may sound weird and you may not understand it so here are a couple examples.
1.) In the bible when there is a divorce going on people in the area are told to throw stones at the woman, even if she is not at fault.
2.) It took woman years to have the ability to vote.
3.) A guy can play multiple girls and get called the man while a girl can do the same exact thing get the label of being a (excuse my french) whore.
It’s not exactly right nor’ fair. Woman carry a lot of weight on their shoulders from having to stay home and be expected to cook and clean (old days reference) to being judged on every little thing they wear or how they look.
I don’t exactly see what the whole difference between a male and a female truly is other than physical appearance. So, please, sexist people, enlighten me with your ‘words of wisdom’.
