There have been a suprising number of fights at my school. I know there are bound to be fights at a high school because, well, it's high school. But why so many? And also, why are most of the fights between girls? I've only heard of a few guy fights, but I can't count the girl fights I've seen.
It's a horrible situation. Suffragists died of starvation and abuse to acheieve their right to vote. Feminists in the 70s decided that they didn't have to just stay at home and wear makeup and not work. Though woman in the workplace are still payed less than men, there has been tremendous progress.
So what is my generation doing? Why are the girls at school so mad at eachother?
And if you look at the shows on TV, excluding the smart ones most girls my age don't watch, there is so much promiscuity and fighting. How many reality shows do you see with some skinny woman dressed like a skank screaming expletives at someone?
TV stations made specifically for women used to have shows like Xena. But those have been replaced with shows about over-dramatic psychotic brides.
What is going on here?
First I want to focus on my school. This could be a task for the Gay Straight Alliance. Not only conditions at school could be improved, but the public's veiw of GSAs could also be improved.
What do you think?
