I’ve honestly never been so disappointed with society, with teenagers, with my culture than what I was days ago…
When did dressing like a hooker become the only way a girl could get a guy? What happened to the times when it was guys who needed to do the chasing, when if a girl said no the guys would wrack their brains trying to figure out what to do to get them, to court them. Call me old-school, but I don’t think a girl needs to wear next-to-nothing to get my attention, nor should they have to wear next to nothing.
Sure, in today’s society the lines between sensuality and sexuality are constantly blurred and both sexes cross in between them all too often…but the fact that younger girls, the next generation of mothers, are strutting out in backless tops, the highest of heels, the shortest of pants/skirts because that’s the only way they’ll get noticed is a dam shame.
It reminds of a photo circulated on tumblr - ”Society killed the teenager”
Appalled, is probably the best way to describe how I felt standing in this carpark while 60, 70, maybe 80 Indians/Lankans pretend to be the hardest thing on the planet. The mere fact that everyone forgets about a person’s birthday, just to walk outside and blow steam, push out their chest, makes me wonder…honestly.
There was a reason why I don’t like to hang out with Indians, and it’s because of that. The culture of Indians in that side of Sydney absolutely made me want to throw up. I was disappointed to be Indian, and I’ve never said that before.
Yelling and screaming, carrying on like an idiot doesn’t make you cool. Taking half-naked photos of yourself when your obviously naturally skinny doesn’t make you cool. Staunching up, and than yelling ‘come at me bro’ after you walked 50 metres away doesn’t make you cool.
That whole culture is built on fronts. Trying to act like someone your not, trying to portray this image that goes against who you really are, and for what? a few extra likes on facebook? niceeeee.
The simple fact that even though you do all of this, you’re still insecure, you still have negative thoughts in your mind about who you are and what you do, and how you look to everyone else. Thats how I know i’ve won.
