  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi.

Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Gov. DeWine vetoes ban on transgender care, sports participation measure

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine vetoed a bill that would’ve banned gender-affirming healthcare for minors, as well as barring transgender athletes from participating in women’s sports.

Gov. DeWine vetoed House Bill 68 Friday, and alongside the veto announced plans to make a move to ban transgender surgeries for individuals under the age of 18. DeWine says this could allow for more support from the republican legislature, who has the ability to override the veto, if passed again through the state house and senate.

“Ultimately, I believe this is about protecting human life. Many parents have told me that their child would be dead today if they had not received the treatment they received from an Ohio children’s hospital,” Gov. Dewine remarked. “I have also been told, by those who are now grown adults, that but for this care, they would have taken their life when they were teenagers.”

    Good Morning,

    I am a Bowling Green Women’s Lacrosse and Field Hockey Alumni. I am an avid supporter of Women’s Sports. We must provide a bill that only addresses transgender women in women’s sports. If a man choose to transgender to a woman that is a personal decision. A separate category will need to be an established for their participation.
