Battle Of The Sexes

Girls are crazy, boys are stupid.

Battle Of The Sexes
Bella Grabowski

I think both sexes, male and female, wonder why the other is the way they are. It's something that has always interested me because I always try to find an explanation for things. So here's my attempt at uncovering the truth in the battle of the sexes. We have two main characters, Dude and Girlie (I feel like their names are pretty self-explanatory). They are both trying to figure each other's actions out. This starts off with both of them reflecting on their night last night.


“OMG she’s psycho dude! I can’t believe she didn’t let me do that. I mean she knew what I meant by ‘Netflix’n’chill’, right?”


“OMG what a pig! That’s all guys ever want, huh? I can’t believe I even thought he was decent.”

What actually happened:

Dude invites Girlie over to the dorm to “Netflix’n’chill.” He has been flirting with her (and three other girls; she just happened to respond the fastest), and she’s been head over heels for him since he asked for her number at a party. While watching Netflix, Dude puts his arm around her and makes a move not even five minutes into the movie. Girlie then quickly reacts with a stunned face, rude look and a dramatic goodbye.

It’s honestly so funny to me to hear of scenarios such as this one. Someone once told me, “girls are crazy, guys are stupid.” And it really is true, but we have to jump into this topic a little bit more to fully understand it. What it really is, te fact that girls claim that they are crazy because guys are stupid while at the same time boys claim that they are "stupid" because girls are crazy. Let's take a look at another example.

Girls are crazy because boys are stupid:

Girls may be a little crazy. I can attest to this. But in our defense, we are crazy because guys just don’t. get. it. Like how do they not know what “I’m fine.” vs. “I’m fine” means. It’s so totally and incredibly obvious. The period says a lot. You'd think that by this age they would understand punctuation and its significance. Wow. Boys. Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them. Am I right?

Boys are stupid because girls are crazy:

Yeah I mean girls are psycho. Like who even uses periods and punctuation when they text? It’s the 21st century, ain’t nobody got time for that. But honestly, I did get that signal. I mean I have a sister. I just pretend sometimes not to see these kinds of things because it’s almost better that one. Ignorance is bliss my friends.

After testing our hypotheses, we can conclude that both sides claim that the other party is responsible for all of their issues or misunderstandings. But in reality, we cannot point fingers. One is just as culpable as the other. Just like fessing up to a crime, admitting you're wrong is hard as well. No one ever wants to do it especially if pointing a finger at the person next to you is so much easier. In end, both are the cause of the other. Girls may be crazy and boys may be stupid but it's only because one is a certain way. But the greatest part about that mismatch is the fact that you cannot have two of the same thing. It's the Yin and the Yang. One cannot be balanced without the other. The girls' craziness is balanced out by the guys' stupidity. This is why compatibility works as it does. It's like having the argument if the zebra is black with white stripes of white with black stripes. In the end, it doesn't mater because having the big big picture is what does.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
