Lady Gaga IS a felony offense.
Lady Gaga needs to become illegal
You know, before the Internet and before there was so many pantywaist gay boys and men running around, boys who were bullied did things like, I don’t know, lift weights, go to Golden Gloves, take karate. Then they beat the piss out of their problems and recovered a great measure of self respect.
Now it’s cry on the Internet to complete strangers.
Apparently the lad didn’t take his own advice to ignore the bullies.
Kids can be cruel, and the forced grouping of them in public skewls doesn’t help. It’s terribly shortsighted to laud this artificial situation as a “schooling in the real world” because most of the time they can choose their companions once they enter the workforce and may never have to deal with a bully again.
After about three months of it in junior high, I went after three bullies one at a time.
All learned a useful early lesson I think, one that authorities could never teach.
Oh, is she in studio working on her new LP?
(Yes I know "LP" is an outdated term. Now let me be, I'm headed to the icebox to fetch a soda pop to enjoy while wearing my comfy dungarees.)
Being a horrible Madonna ripoff should be illegal. The original was/is bad enough.
What exactly IS this Lady GaGa thing. Is it just an example of what NOT to be?
I guess this means Cartman can sick the Feds on Kyle for calling him a fat ass...
It’s interesting that so many current celebrities went to Catholic school, and some of them, like Madonna and Lady Gaga were quite good students. There are many of them who even went to seminary to become priests (inc. Tom Cruise and Michael Moore).
Scut Farkus is deeply concerned.
Bullying does need to be treated as criminal offensive in many cases. Student beats up another? Arrest the little maggot and charge him with assault.
School administrations also need to stop zero-tolerance policies and not punish students who are trying to defend themselves from said bullies.
... like saying there should be Castle Doctrine practiced at the person level
Start with that vile Dan Savage, who threatened evil things with Rick Santorum.
