How To Be A Good Citizen

Not every celebrity should be your role model, but sometimes it’s helpful to look to their actions for inspiration. With the Presidential Election coming up, we thought it would be good to look to some celebs who are good citizens. Being a citizen isn’t just about having strong beliefs, it’s about getting involved in your communities and taking a part in shaping the world you best see fit. It isn’t always easy. Kelly Clarkson has had a tricky time trying to juggle her beliefs with politics.

Today she told The Daily Star, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again, even though I’m a Republican at heart. I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married. I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the 50s.” That couldn’t have been an easy decision to make, but we commend her for taking a stance on something she felt strongly about even when it contradicted some of her other values!

    I loved the one about not being offensive, and this is going for both sides. While I support one candidate over the other, I really can’t respect one party over the other because they both bash the other in any way possible! Mutt Romney, Oblamer, to just name a few of the many names people have for our president and possibly our about to be president. I don’t agree with Obama in any way, but he’s still a person and is still in authority and deserves respect. Name calling just makes you look stupid and helps the other person’s argument, no matter what the situation is.

    Also, slut shaming is considered really horrible (not saying it isn’t, I mean who are we to judge?) but shaming someone for their political beliefs, especially where they stand regarding abortion and women’s rights, is just as bad. Trust me, I’ve been on the receiving end, especially online, and it hurts. Even when ts not directed at me, it still hurts.
