The surge of fighting videos across the online world has ultimately caught the interest of the mainstream media, by means of a CBS news reports on the substantial number of video clips of girl fights online. It is time these video clips attracted the attention of far more people.
The document, entitled "Teen girl fighting videos go viral", talks about how a lot more fights between girls take place in colleges across the country, with 70% of documented college fights being female vs female.
Video footage of real fights from minor street fights to gang fights are very easily found on Myspace lately, and virtually any minor who opens up a Youtube account being untruthful about how old they are get access to this video footage.
The content piece builds up on the principle that viewing these kinds of videos (not just on Youtube, but on numerous other sites too) makes minors more likely to learn like-minded actions since there are numerous men and women who'll do just about anything to "get famous". Now i am going to speculate there may be a lot more to it than that. Lately a friend confided in me that women in the us and Canada are almost trained to dislike each other. It's possible what she truly claimed was that girls are trained to be really aggressive amongst each other, to put down other young women. She claimed that one woman can almost by no means trust what slides out of another girl's mouth if, for instance, that girl provides a compliment. Just as one illustration, she explained that if a woman tells her "I like your shirt," it might suggest that the girl detests her clothes, or that she's envious because she wants the shirt or piece of clothing, or it could also mean that she truly does like the shirt or piece of clothing discussed.
This good friend noticed that merely the word of close, genuine friends might be honest. This was an epiphany for me personally, because as a man I had usually believed that ladies got along pretty well. Obviously, if girl quarrels are any indication, this particular ill will that's tended to fester under the surface is starting to be released in unsightly and violent ways more and more. In the event you genuinely want ugly, have a look at the video clips of girl gang fights; some of these go even even farther in terms of physical agression.
Is there any way to take care of this challenge?
The most troubling things with regards to these kinds of clips is that somebody needed to be also there filming it, and yet they do nothing to prevent girls fighting along with other raw scenarios. Oftentimes, this can be rather inexcusable as grown men in many cases are present during most of these fights. They could separate the young women, phone the police, any variety of things. But taking a quick glance at some video clips can make it obvious that bystanders are getting some sort of sick entertainment from observing two people trying to physically hurt one another. Quite often, they will even come up with encouraging remarks or have a good laugh at the girls fighting. I've commented on the cruel conduct of bystanders previously in other posts, and it would seem much more outrageous when young women are participating.
However since girl fights are fast becoming a severe social problem, it's up to every single person in society to try and do their part.
The FOX post I mentioned within the intro comprises guidance from college officials on the very best way to carry on in terms of keeping their own kids from entering into in street fights. The sole really helpful tip they offered was for moms and dads to talk with their teenagers regarding the situation. It's rather humorous as well, simply because they help make the point that you simply should ask a great deal of questions, rather than just specifically forbidding your kids to do it. That is some strong parenting advice that relates to several areas of youngsters' day-to-day lives. It is been mentioned more often than not that it is important for mother and father to talk to their kids, and to keep in mind that 50 % of conversing can include listening what your child has to say! As a guardian, I've discovered that teens (my child, at the very least) truly do listen if you take the time to slowly and gently clarify the reason why they ought to or should not do something. Of course, this article will probably be speaking to the choir as I'm convinced most moms and dads who already have healthy conversation with their children don't have to worry about their kids, particularly girls fighting videos and agression which will probably be posted on the internet.
One worthless hint they offered would have been to tell kids to report any "inappropriate" video clips as if "that" will improve the situation. Even if they did, the video clips would just be flagged as not appropriate for minors, and minors can still watch these with the greatest of ease. That is just Myspace and other well-known web-sites; there are possibly many other sites that offer clips of girl fights as a source of entertainment.
I do think that, as usual, this love of violence may be a characteristic of much deeper problems. I think that to genuinely transform things, we as a modern society have to do some adjustments on non-physical violence. Let us study Gandhi in college, as opposed to glorify violence in motion pictures and print?
It is a disgrace that so much of our young ones throw away a great deal of time observing video footage of humans beating the crap out of each other. I do not have the solutions, but I believe that jointly, we can easily put together something. If all else fails, maybe all kids should be forced to undertake martial arts education. All those who want to can spar, and it will be placed under expert supervision. And it'll then relate to skill, and heart, as an alternative to unmitigated vicious and pointless voilence.
