Should girls wear sexy clothing?Posted 6 years Ago

You may call me stupid for this, but

Let's say a boy asks his "friend" to write a cool sign on his forehead, like a thumbs up or whatever is NOT offensive. Yet his "friend" decides to be a jerk and draws a swatstika on his head with a permanent marker, without his knowledge.

The guy walks off and his life is ruined forever because everyone automatically thinks he wore it on purpose, when it was the exact opposite.

How would you feel if you were the boy?

Or they really are deliberately trying to look slutty.

But when guys make sexual comments about you as if you're an object of sexy desire, that crosses the line, unless if you genuinely want it.

Yeah, and they're supposed to be psychic and know when? Either something crosses a line or not. I don't call it crossing a line just because an ugly chick tries to hit on me, it's absurd.


But when a girl seriously doesn't want guys making sleazy comments, she's not asking for it. Why is that hard to understand?

Now we're talking of sleazy comments. Different story. If a guy randomly makes a sleazy comment, it's clear he is a POS, so obviously any negative reaction won't register, unless it's blatant.

You can dress as a police officer for Halloween and should not be treated like an actual police officer if you know he/she's not a real police officer. It's all about the intention of wearing the clothes.

I agree. I don't want black people randomly running from me.

I thought we weren't supposed to judge a book by its cover. So why is this any different?

That's BS. You should absolutely judge a book by it's cover. How you choose to dress, carry yourself and act is who you are trying to be, which says a lot about a person.

You're supposed to read the book before you finally judge it. You can dislike the cover, but that doesn't mean the inside of the book is not likable.

It all depends on why the person is wearing this or that. Art has many different meanings, and they have different meanings for everyone.

Nobody has time to read every single book. All we have to go on is the cover to pick whether we invest more time in them, and the cover if accurate even half the time is good enough for me

I read the blurb on the back or so before I decide whether or not to buy it. It's a preview.

The cover of the book is also part of the book. Would you take a book on philosophy or politics seriously if it has a lolcat and other advice animals as its cover?

That's only the cover. You don't know what else is in it. Just because one part of it is stupid doesn't mean everything else in it is. And why would anyone put lolcat or advice animals on the cover for a serious book on politics or philosophy? That's not a good analogy. No idiot would do that.

I mean, how would you feel if you threw away a book because you didn't like the cover, then you hear reviews for it saying that it's amazing because if what is inside the book, those who actually read it? Does the cover still matter most to you?

They are too old for that story to work. They should just meet up in a coed prison in the future and reluctantly work together to break out of prison.

I never said that I wanted it to be a movie. I was simply saying what COULD have happened afterwards. God no, of course they're too old.

My Breakfast Club sequel ideaPosted 6 years Ago

I don't believe that they completely ignored each other afterwards-otherwise why would they call themselves a club? I believe they most likely met each other in secret in order to still maintain their reputations.

I'm just going to write a summary of what I think could of happened after The Breakfast Club.

So they go on for months barely seeing each other, but end up deciding to only meet in each other in secret on Saturday nights to form their own club (breakfast club, duh), where they can talk about their shitty lives together. While no one has found out, their friends are getting very suspicious, as they have started acting weird. Not only that, but graduation is nearing, and the day will decide the club's fate.

Brian is being pressured by his parents to apply to the Ivy Leagues, even though he doesn't want to go to any of them. The vice principal decides to confront Brian about the gun in his locker, but he lies saying the jocks must have left it in there as their way of telling him to kill himself. She doesn't believe him, but doesn't say anything.

Andrew's friends bully Allison, and he fights back the urge to stand up for her in order to conceal their relationship. One day, the jocks end up throwing her against the lockers, causing her to fall unconscious with a cut in her head. Andrew notifies Vernon, who calls 911. Allison is taken to the hospital and turns out fine. Andrew comes by with a love letter attached to a single rose, which he leaves before Allison wakes up.The next day, Andrew's friends have shunned him.

Claire has an older sister, Leslie, who is a career counselor. She had convinced their parents to let her stay at her house for the last few months of school. Claire comes home late one night and makes an excuse that her friends shopped longer than planned. Leslie finds a note from the club fallen from her backpack and confronts her. Claire confesses and explains everything. Leslie is happy that she has found friends to connect with, but strongly disapproves of Bender and tells her to leave him out of it. Luckily, Claire doesn't tell her that they are secretly dating. Another Satuday night, Claire comes home with a hickey from Bender. Leslie notices and gets very angry. She forces Claire to reveal their relationship but begs her not to hurt him. Leslie goes out the next night and starts beating Bender. She accuses him of sleeping with her or possibly even raping her, knowing of his previous sexual harassment. Bender claims that they never went any farther than kissing, that she's still a virgin. While Leslie is relieved, she still considers him completely unworthy of Claire, calling him a "gigantic douchebag." Bender defends himself by saying he doesn't care if she hates him, because she doesn't know him. Leslie replies that while she is sorry for his abuse at home, it doesn't give him an excuse to cause trouble and bully anyone else. Bender asks if he has to stay away from Claire, which Leslie replies, "I don't know. If your criminal record gets worse, you may not see anyone anymore. You'll be in prison." She walks off into the night.

It's "College and Career Week," and Leslie is one of the career counselors. The club's worries of separating after school increases. Claire's girlfriends continue to pressure her to have sex, calling her a prude otherwise. Leslie overhears and orders them to leave her alone. Claire notices bruises on Leslie's knuckles, realizing that she had gone against her wishes and physically abused Bender.

Brian gets the courage to stand up to his parents, saying that he does not want to go to any Ivy League. This causes a huge argument, causing Brian to storm out of the house. Bender gets in a serious brawl with his father; he can't take it anymore and moves out to run away. He leaves a note to the Breakfast Club saying good-bye, and heads towards the nearest train station. Leslie, realizing she may have judged Bender too harshly, tracks him down and convinces him to stay if she finds counseling for the five. Graduation day comes. The five decide that it doesn't matter if they never see each other again, because they'll always remember each other. They share a heartfelt moment before they go to the graduation dance.

So what do you think? Do you think this could have happened? I tried to be realistic with a bittersweet ending.

What should have happened in the story that didn't? Example: should Brian have found out if he got into any of the Ivy Leagues? Should Claire's parents have gotten involved with her and Bender? Should we have heard more about Allison? Should Andrew become a professional athlete?

This is also a question I would love to ask: What would you do if you were Leslie? Would you tell Claire to stay away from Bender, or would you just let them be?

If you don't like this, that's fine. Just please no rude comments. :)

No such thing as a useless college degree.Posted 6 years Ago

I hear constant Internet jokes about college degrees considered to be useless.

First it was philosophy, then it was the arts, then it was education, and now it's my planned major: biology.

In short, it seems that whatever field does not pay around $70,000 a year or such is a "useless" degree. Does everyone only care about money nowadays?

Ironically, the articles that explain the worthlessness of certain degrees also show statistics of employment and annual pay. Unemployment rates are around 10% or less, and annual wage is around $30,000-$50,000. HOW is that worthless money?

It offends me, but at the same time it makes me laugh really hard. If these majors were really worthless, then why are they still be offered at even the most prestigious colleges and universities? Why are there still teachers and professors? Why are there still journalists and writers? Why are there still biologists? Why are there still anthropologists? And so on.

We have these professions in society because of these majors. So if you are going to insult a major or a profession, do thorough research. 10% is not a high unemployment rate. $30,000 or $50,000 are pretty darn good amount of earnings.

Anyone agree with me?

Sexism in the movie "I Am Sam?"Posted 6 years Ago

I watched the movie "I Am Sam," and it's about how a mentally handicapped man becomes a father when he impregnates a homeless woman he was sheltering.

Everyone puts the blame on him. They act like he raped her. They give him dirty looks and say "It's too late to apologize for this. It's your fault. You got this woman pregnant. Take the blame."

Yet he is mentally challenged, therefore unable to consent and know what he is really doing.

I believe that this is because since society believes that rapists are only men, they have to accuse Sam of raping the woman, even if he is unaware of what he is doing.

I'm not at all saying that the woman should be blamed. I'm simply saying that Sam should not have been accused of raping her just because he's a man, and the woman regretted the sex.

What do you think?
