1. Only sluts are worth keeping?
2. It is not a small minority of us
3. You can be a nice LAD & still have game
“how confusing it must be to be an 18-year-old boy, frantically trying to stay
afloat in a lido of banter, where everything’s a laugh and what you say
is hardly ever what you think,
reasserting your sexuality every 10 minutes
as if refreshing a screen.”
4. You can’t hide from it. We’re all a part of it
It all comes out when you’re safely tucked away in your room, guarded by the anonymity of a laptop screen.
I dare these guys to say this in person in front of women. We’ll see how much of a LAD you are then.
Posts include: ‘why chubby girls need loving too’, ‘how to get a regular booty call’ & ‘a medley of minge’.
5. Don’t condone it with your silence
If you see this behaviour, weed it out. Call people out on their words and actions. Guys and girls. Explain why this is NOT just a joke.
We can complain when the media portrays us as negative, but what can we expect if this is the image of ourselves that WE – as youth – celebrate and put out there?
And if not, if you’re going to be silent on this. Then don’t complain when it’s your daughter or your friend, or your photo on this site.
Carry on, let it continue, and see where it leads you in 5 years time and if that life is really as happy and fulfilled as you THINK.
As a young person, this post is a direct attack on this BS.
COMMENT below if you agree. I don’t accept this & this definitely isn’t who we are.
Stand up & speak out.
