A Hairy Tale This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Open your average Seventeen magazine and look at the ads. What are they selling? Razors. I find that perfectly acceptable; people shave and therefore need razors. There is something, however, that I’m not comfortable with: the message. Gillette... (more »)

Mom, I’m Gay This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
     I remember that day when I proudly stated, “Mom, I’m gay.” I felt liberated - until I realized that she wanted to push me out of the car. Liberation, all right. Good thing I wasn’t liberated... (more »)

Homeschool Blues This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
I get stereotyped a lot. When I meet someone for the first time, we’ll be talking about movies, music, or summer jobs – then, the dreaded question: “So, where do you go to school?” I shift slightly. I know how they’re going to ­react. I... (more »)

"Do You Shower in That?" and Other... This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.
Custom User Avatar
I do not shower in my hijab, nor do I sleep with it. I do not have a bomb under my headscarf either; the slight bulge is my hair wrapped in a bun. Hair loss is not the reason I cover. Trust me, I have hair. Sometimes, you just have to believe in... (more »)

Dear Peers This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Custom User Avatar
Dear Peers, I used to look up to you. I used to try to get your attention. I used to want to fit in by wearing weird clothes and listening to all the lies you’d tell me. I used to laugh at jokes that weren’t funny. I used to let you copy... (more »)

Being Muslim This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Custom User Avatar
People are afraid of me. Why are they afraid of me, you might ask? A rare disease? Hideous scars? Vile breath? I reply, with a smile on my face, that it puzzled me at first, too. But now I know. People think worse about me than that. Much... (more »)

The Morality of Homosexuality
I figure that it would be good for me to discuss my opinions on homosexuality. This is something that I think about a whole lot because it is something I feel strongly about. I think that I have well developed opinions on the matter, but I... (more »)

What it is like to live with Aspergers Syndrome This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.
By , Milford, OH
I was diagnosed with Aspergers when I was 9 years old, but have probably have had it since I was born 17 years ago. At that time, I didn’t even know what Aspergers was, but I have learned what it is. Aspergers is a developmental disorder within... (more »)

Gay Marriage. Why it Should be Legalized
Custom User Avatar
Gay marriage should be legalized because it is uncivilized and unmerited. Our civil rights and the Constitution give us many liberties. One of our civil liberties is the pursuit of happiness, which homosexual people are not allowed to chase. They... (more »)

Letters From Our Future Selves This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Dear Associate Dean, I don’t believe I deserve this detention. I don’t do drugs or skip class. Just because I eat lunch with the “bad eggs” does not mean that I am one. If you stereotype me then I begin to stereotype myself. Before... (more »)

A N∑rd’s Life This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Everyone has seen them. From the teen in math class who knows every answer before the question is asked, to the kid sitting alone in the cafeteria who looks like he got dressed with the lights off. Everybody has come across these highly... (more »)

Shine Your Light This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Life is not easy for anyone. People struggle, trying to get from day to day without too much heartache. What makes me different from others? I am overweight. I am the biggest person in my high school class of sixty kids. I have struggled my whole... (more »)

Reflections on "Mulan" This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine. This work has won the Teen Ink contest in its category.

As a little girl, I was bombarded with the message that I could do anything a boy could do. My parents said so, teachers said so, and the media said so – both explicitly, through advice columns on how to get boys to play with me in magazines... (more »)

Asexual
Custom User Avatar
I’m not homosexual, but I’m not straight, either. I’m nothing. I’ve never had sex nor even been kissed, and the funny thing about me is, I’ve never wanted to. I’m not interested. I just don’t like sex. Now, if you’re like... (more »)

Numbers: My Only Proof This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
In third grade we were assigned a biography project. This assignment was famous at my school, and we'd all been thinking about our topics since kindergarten. The posters would cover the halls midway through the year for everyone to admire. I... (more »)

Mulan: Just Another Princess This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Custom User Avatar
“Mulan,” the animated Disney movie based on the ancient Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, is just another racist, sexist product of this giant corporation. As a child, Mulan was my all-time favorite movie – finally a ­Disney title character who... (more »)
