Fighting does little to solve conflicts

There has been a lot of violence between females at Schenectady High School over the past few weeks. It seems like young females believe that physical violence is the only answer to a problem. It’s not.

In all reality, fighting is a very unattractive, embarrassing and trashy act. When I went around school and asked a few of my peers what they think are the main reasons for these fights, the two biggest responses I got were: Facebook and boys.

As I think about my personal situations, most of my conflicts between other girls have started with a boy. I’ve never fought over one, but they have brought issues to my friendships with other females.

After fighting someone though, does that really solve the conflict? I don’t think so because the issues are never truly resolved or confronted.

Seeing who can beat who in a fight has nothing to do with the actual problem within itself.

Maybe some of these young ladies just aren’t mature enough or capable to verbally confront their issues instead of getting physical.

I have always wondered why females hate each other. It seems like we are always in a big competition with one another.

Males on the other hand, do get into conflicts with each other but for the most part they’re friends again within the next hour: unlike females. Girls just seem to have an everlasting rage we hold against each other. Why though?

Men seem like they can easily befriend one another without considering social status, what the other one is wearing or who they are dating.

Whether we like to admit it or not, females are very emotional and insecure on the inside. Those factors do indeed play a roll in our catty behaviors.

It’s about time these females learn how to just simply get over it, sit down and talk about your issues, instead of trying to beat the life out of each other.

The outcomes of a fight are just unnecessary inconveniences, such as physical injuries, emotional damage and, possibly, jail time.

Rather than just talking it out or if you have that much animosity toward one another, then why not just stay away from each other.
