The lives of Chicanos matter too

While most people will pay attention to police brutality against African Americans and the “Black Lives Matter” movement, Latino lives seem to have been forgotten. Allow me to first say that I have no problems with the Black Lives Matter movement, and I have the utmost respect for law enforcement. My point does not come from a place of malice, but rather pride and concern for people of my own ethnic background. In school,...

Making the most of the Palomar experience

Palomar College has changed my life because I was willing to make the most of what it had to offer, and as I leave this place to transfer next semester, my hope is that more Palomar students will discover how great this place really is by doing the same. My academic life leading up to Palomar was nothing to write home about. I graduated from Great Oak High School in Temecula with a 2.53 GPA, my lowest semester being a 1.6. I...

Female liberation through the art of nudes

We as a society should completely strip the taboo notions that currently surround the act of taking nude photographs. The art of the “nude” has done wonders for my own sense of self awareness and fearlessness. During high school, I learned to hate my body. It was there that I realized that my body was not just my own, private entity but an open target, for both desire and discrimination. My curves became something that made me feel...

Letter to the Editor

Although the members of the Behavioral Sciences Department faculty at Palomar College are not all in agreement on the issue of which restrooms transgender people should use, we were all disheartened to read the “Pro” position regarding the “great bathroom conundrum” published in the Telescope on March 13, entitled “What mental illness and bathrooms have in common”(posted online at...
