"I know that this will be my second rant in a few days, but I think since I don’t have to focus as much on school, I can focus my energy on venting. This one’s about boys. Specifically the ones at my school, or maybe high school in general, or maybe in life, but oh god I hope not. I’m not even sure if I’m going to put this into words in a way that is accessible to anyone but myself, but I’m going to try. And before I say all of this, if you go to my school, please don’t hate me, you’re probably the exception (I mean maybe not, but please just think you are for both of our sakes). I just don’t understand the social hierarchy in regards to which boys date which girls. The divide is off in terms of the “type” of girl that a majority of boys want to and do date. If a boy is smart and funny and maybe even considered a little bit weird, he is still perfectly capable of getting with, or even dating, a girl that is considered popular and is beautiful, but, if I’m being candid, not nearly as smart or funny as him. And the worst part is that the boys do just that! And they are happy! I am being a bitter brat, but I just think they would be so much happier with someone that actually laughed at their jokes and had a personality. I watched a Netflix documentary, so I am well versed on the science behind all of this. When a woman looks for a man, on a subconscious level, they are looking for someone that would be a good father to their children. In other-words: kindness, sensitivity, a sense of humor, traits we want in our children. On the other hand, in their subconscious, men look for a girl that would bear them the best children. In other-words: childbearing hips, breasts, physical traits. But I am giving high school boys far too much credit. Because the reality is that which girls get boys is decided in middle school or by a god that is smiting me or something that I haven’t figured out yet. And you know what? That fucking sucks. It fucking sucks that a similar group of girls get the “dumb jocks”, the “artsy boys”, the “intellectuals”, everyone. And that’s accepted. But it’s some sort of taboo for boys to go out of the comfort zone of girls to hook up with or date. I am friends with some of the funniest, smartest girls on the planet, or at least in this town. AND these are not ugly people. At all. These are some of the prettiest people. But the smart, funny boys that they should be dating or texting or kissing are busy dating and texting and kissing girls that worry more about instagramming their parties than actually spending time with the people there. I am generalizing so much here, but high school is fucking rife with generalizations. I just can’t wait to get out of here. In a few more months this better not matter anymore. The conclusion of this is that high school boys are the worst. But of course, that’s not a new conclusion."
