First things first New year, still Ruthless. Of course that doesn’t come without some announcements. The big stuff comes during the anniversary in March but as we’ve begun 2016 I wanted to make you all aware of something big. After much deliberation, we’ve decided to get rid of the guest blogger justice league. Because they aren’t guests. they may post only once in a blue moon, but they are as much a part of our staff as each and every R revolution member has been. And calling them by a separate name was not respectful of their contribution. So the Read more »

Inspired by a very brave friend who came out as transgender on Facebook today, I can no longer keep my silence. Since the release of the most recent Vanity Fair cover on Monday, June 1st, social media has been concentrated with emphatic and vehement opinions, posts, blogs and articles regarding the transformation from a “he,” Bruce Jenner, to a “she,” Caitlyn Jenner. I’ve tried terribly hard to keep my opinions on the subject to myself so not to invite debate and attract people who disagree with my opinions, to leave mean and hateful comments on my Favebook. I’ve decided Read more »
Words Don’t Do It Justice “It was all a dream. I used read word up magazine.” I could keep going with that, but really I don’t feel like quoting too much of anyone else today. So let me address this with the style most comforting. When this all began it was an idea. The thought that we could give the world something in this blog that would be read by our friends, maybe a few co-workers and classmates. And every once in a while I’d get to deal with the issues I have to face on a daily basis by Read more »
Anita and the culture of shaming that shields Her A petition involving a well-known developer and Anita Sarkeesian began floating around the internet a few days ago. It was apparently about having Anita ousted from her role as an advisor on the development team that is currently working on ‘Mirrors Edge 2.’ “Alright,” I thought to myself. “What is she doing being an advisor on a videogame?” I decided to sign the petition. What I did not realize was that site would then post that link to my personal facebook. It wasn’t until I received my first comment that I Read more »

Elite Law Schools Can Do What They Want It’s my final year of law school and I had just finished my last final exam for the fall semester. Four exams filled with utter misery, confusing hypotheticals and might I add, law- professor- created exams with typos (and they say how important exams are). It was Friday night and I felt like I just got paid but I didn’t. I was completely exhausted from studying and working and working and studying. So naturally, after exams I went out for celebratory drinks with a fellow law student as we bitched and complained Read more »
