understanding gender

Gendered clothing is a social construct. We as a society have been conditioned to relate certain clothing to women and other clothing to men. But there is no reasoning behind it.

#metoo #toofar?

Full disclosure: I’m a chick. And you may not like what I’m about to say. I’m a 30 something year old, mother of two and I have a vagina. And you men are all afraid of it now.

don't sweat the small stuff

Most will  only remember the gesture, not the question.  This gesture alone seems to be used just as much as a handshake between the politicians on both sides of the floor.

The island millenial: It's time to speak up

Picking out flaws in Millennials is like shooting fish in a barrel. It’s so easy. Except for the fact that, well, most of those flaws aren’t true. Shania MacIssac explains that it’s time for Island Millennials to speak-up. Island Millennials need to stand firm as the generation with a higher standard of respecting each other.

Island Maxims: General Guidelines for the Modern Era

Etiquette shouldn’t be a bunch of outdated rules from past generations. It should be an evolving set of conventions that we decide as a community about everyday things that might be a nuisance. Phone-etiquette, vaping-etiquette, online-etiquette, drive-thru etiquette, gaming-etiquette. The list goes on.

Islanders need to talk about what’s cool or not so cool in modern life.

ISLANDER DAY 2.0

Perhaps our list of holidays each year is missing something. It might seem a bit unorthodox at first, but why don't we have some sort of "Ancestor Appreciation Day"? In some parts of the world, that's a holiday that already exists, but it's not so much a thing in Western society. On an island that adores its heritage so much, perhaps we're missing something.

OPINION: ARE ISLANDERS FREE?

Freedom isn't free!  Living in the shadow of the United States, we're inundated with their patriotic messaging. Although Islanders, too, can be quick to use freedom to justify our properity and national pride, freedom means different things to different people.

EXCUSES MUST BE LEFT AT THE DOOR.

The Tignish Royal Canadian Legion made international news when two Sikh men were discriminated against by staff and local patrons. Jason MacGregor, a long-serving member of the armed forces explains that the fallout of that event also highlights ignorance of military culture in Canada today.

P.E.I. NEEDS A WINTER BEACH!

For living in a place that takes so much pride in joy beaches, winter gives Islanders withdrawals that other North Americans may not understand. But an old airship hangar in Germany offers a solution.

IS P.E.I. OVER ITS FEAR OF CHANGE?

Once it was the Island's scariest word.  But now with the recent election of a second Green Party member a fundamental shift making be taking place.
