Gossip Just Ain't Cool!

Gossip seeps through every school's halls, every bathroom's stalls, and every city's malls. There's celebrity gossip, E gossip, wrestling gossip, Hollywood gossip - even Barbie gossip. Gossip is entertainment for most people, but for the people who are being gossiped about, it sucks! And sometimes it can ruin their lives.

Gossip is basically lies, lies and more lies. And the last time I checked, lies ain't cool. Here's how it starts:

People hear a tidbit of information about somebody they may know or not, and they take that info and build a story around it in their heads. Then they tell their friends this info, and their friends add even more false info to the story and spread that around, until the whole school is talking about how Mandy is pregnant with Freddie's kid, when what really happened is Mandy only babysat Freddie's cousin's kid! It sounds so dumb that stuff like that can actually start, but it does.

Gossip gets carried away because talking about other people's crazy, made-up lives is sometimes more fun than talking about reality. But the thing is that it isn't real and it makes people's lives miserable. And once gossip starts there's no stopping it. Gossip and rumors will grow and grow until everybody is talking about everybody else and no one is safe. Remember when two DJs in Texas said that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake had been in a car wreck? The next thing ya know, CNN is reporting that Britney is dead and the popstars' families are freaking out!

Real life is crazy enough without having people make stuff up about you, and vice-versa. There has to be a better way for people to socialize without making up lies.

    Umm...If she is the kind of girl that likes to talk a lot and tells everybody what is going on then the whole school will know when she finds out you like her.  I say who cares if the whole school knows you like her.  I like it if a boy tells me he likes me and ask me out.  I don't like boys trying to be sneaky coz they stink at it and end up looking stupid.  If you want to be sneaky about it you can ask her if she can help you with your homework or ask her if she wants to hang with you and your friends at the mall or you can look at her and smile and see if she smiles back at you.

    well, as a girl i know that i like it when boys are up front with there feelings. girls like to know that they can trust you to tell them the truth no matter who's watching you.  that may show that you really do like her. if you need to do it privately, then mabey if you do any after school activities and she does then ask her then. jojo(:
