Redefining The Girl Code

by Ashley Fern

Female behavior has to be one of the most, if not the most, complex phenomenon known to man. It is difficult to navigate through the girl world because of the incredible amount of fakeness that runs rampant in it. Women as a culture need to take a page from the men’s book of respecting one another.

Men address each other immediately when conflict arises, overtly, even if it is in a violent way. Most women seek to undermine each other without ever directly acknowledging the issue at hand. If we want to be taken seriously we need to wake the f*ck up and redefine the girl code.

The most fake thing I have ever seen is watching two girls meet each other for the first time. If you don’t like someone, that’s fine, sometimes people just don’t get along -- but there is no need to make a show about it. Fake interactions breed gossip and cause trouble. Keep your opinions about others to yourself; do not spread malicious rumors to alleviate your own insecurities.

Don’t get me wrong, there are some of us that aren’t like that -- BUT there should definitely be more of us. Mrs. Norberry had it down when she preached to Regina George and the entire North Shore High School, “You have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it okay for guys to call you sluts and whores.” Well, Mrs. N it seems when you aren’t pushing drugs, you’re impacting the lives of so many. You go Glen Coco!

Instead of tearing down the self-esteem of other girls we need to stick together as a gender because that’s the only way we are going to be taken seriously; we make it far too easy to be made fun of. The amount of insecurity girls possess is what drives all of this shit talking. Get a handle on your life before you pass judgment upon others. We need to stop acting fake and start getting real.

Men socialize by insulting each other, but they don’t really mean it. Women socialize by complimenting each other, and they don’t really mean it either.

Calling someone fat doesn’t make you skinnier and calling someone ugly doesn’t make you prettier. Stop concerning yourself with shit that doesn’t even involve you! If women spent half as much time criticizing themselves as they did others maybe they would be able to focus on their faults and fix them.

Girls wear far too much photoshop these days.

What happened to natural beauty? It died with the invention of Instagram. Girls these days feel the need to hide their true selves behind faces of plastered on makeup. Fake hair, fake nails, and fake eyelashes are sported on tons of women across America.

There are some girls I know who would never leave their rooms without three layers of mascara and foundation. Selfies of duck faces are going to be the demise of our reputation as a whole, so please for the sake of women everywhere CHILL OUT.

For every male action there is a female overreaction. That was Newton’s third law right?

Crazy is the default word men use to describe the actions of girls far too often. Hey Matt why did you and Jenny break up? BITCH is crazy! How many times have you heard a conversation similar to that and been infuriated by it?

Boys f*ck things up and girls are just f*cked up. It’s a vicious cycle but it continues to happen every day, over and over. The only solution to this problem is for the women of the world to unite. The actions of so many are leading the reputation of women to spiral out of control. We are in desperate need of a girl code!
