Apparently, Justin Bieber has learned a lot regarding women's struggles. Ok, I'll bite. On Monday, in honor of International Women's Day, Bieber took to Instagram and divulged how much his wife, Hailey Bieber, has taught him about the struggles women face.


"I know i have been naive and haven't been empathetic to women in the past and have overlooked their struggles," Bieber wrote alongside an International Women's Day illustration. "I am learning everyday beside my wife." Bieber has always been vocal about his admiration and support for his wife, continuously posting videos and photos of his life with Hailey, whom he married in 2018.


Bieber's post comes a few days after Hailey praised her husband on his 27th birthday, expressing how Bieber is her "favorite human."

"Another year around the sun with you, another year of getting to love you, grow with you and laugh with you," Hailey wrote. "Happy 27th birthday." That's... sweet, I guess. In addition, Bieber continued to express his commitment to women's plights, and mentioned how he would never fully understand their struggles.

"I am committed to being better and more aware of the struggles women face that men never will!!" he continued.
"Women you are superhero's [sic] and deserve to be celebrated today and everyday."

I mean, he's not wrong.

Women have continuously struggled throughout history. It's not exactly breaking news. I guess it comes with the territory of not being born a man. While Bieber's appreciation for his wife is adorable at best, it falls a little flat. It's easy to admire someone you're legally bound to, who also happens to be a 5'7 model.

If Bieber is truly committed to being an ally for women, he needs to do a better job advocating for them, rather than posting an illustration on Instagram. Considering the majority of his fan base is female, Bieber should focus on elevating those voices, not just for duration of Women's History Month, but every day after that.

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
