Understanding the effects of sexual abuse on your partner By Kyra (Radioactive.) Trying to walk in the shoes of a victim of abuse or assault is understandably difficult. Sometimes it may feel like attempts to comfort, help, or sympathize with a victim of trauma can go unnoticed or unappreciated. The victim may be going through significant stress in multiple areas of their lives, and the trauma and stress cannot be fixed or forgotten overnight, even if it happened years before. This article...

The Armenian Genocide By Jenna (.:BreakingBeautifully:.) In April of 1915 the Ottoman Empire launched a methodical attack on its Armenian population which resulted in the death of a million and a half Armenians. These persecutions would continue with varying levels of intensity until 1923 when the Ottoman Empire came to an end and was replaced by the Republic of Turkey. The Ottoman Empire was ruled by Turks who practiced Islam; the Armenians were Christian which made them a minority. Due to...

Virtually You: The Dangerous Powers of the E-Personality by Elias Aboujaoude, MD By Robin (PSY) There are many books that discuss the dangers of an "internet addiction," which can occur when people fall victim to obsessions over online video games, compulsive shopping, and pathological gambling, among other things.

How to make lucky stars By Hollie (James Moriarty) Chances are many of you have tried out some form of origami in your lifetime, perhaps in school or on your own. This could be by creating something as simple as a chatterbox or, for some people, practicing a more advanced level of origami. Either way, this can be an extremely beneficial and fulfilling activity to take up. The problem for many people, however, is that many designs can look extremely complex, and for beginners, may often...

Asexuality: myths and misconceptions By Chess (Syzygy.) Although most people have heard the term 'asexual', there is some confusion surrounding what exactly this means. Some people, for example, regard asexuality as a choice much like abstinence. Others mistakenly believe that sexual and romantic attraction are one and the same, attributing asexuality to a lack of romantic attraction to other people. Many of these myths have developed as a result of a simple lack of awareness, and with...

There are many myths about self harm and why people self harm. The majority of these views are false and lead to stereotypical views of self harm, which is why it is important to debunk these myths. Some of the myths prevent self harmers from telling...

The role of dogs in society By Chess (Syzygy.) Since their domestication, dogs have proven to be invaluable to human society, from hunting to guarding to providing companionship. They have definitely earned their name as 'man's best friend’, as they are great companions, and they can also be trained to assist people in many different ways. Although the concept of guide dogs is not new, there has been a recent branching out as people have come to understand more about how useful dogs can be....

Through distorted lenses By Casey (Casey.) Stereotypes. We all hold some form of them in our minds. Everyone stereotypes others, even those who claim they do not. Sometimes these stereotypes influence how we see the world and how we react to things that do not fit these stereotypes. Recently, in the news, there was a child whose parents refuse to tell anyone whether the child was a boy or a girl. They decided to let the child grow without being forced into the molds of gender roles and...

The Single Life, Part One By Dave (dr2005) and Katrina As one enters adolescence, the pressures of being in a relationship are intensified, perhaps by the social networking relationship statuses open for the public to see, or the tendency to feel as though all of one’s friends are in relationships. As we’ve all seen in the movies, teenaged relationships can grow into marriages of “high school sweethearts,” and others still can turn into long term relationships stretching into the twenties....
