Flirting in high school is weird. There are all sorts of unspoken rules, and no one wants to do anything that would embarrass themselves. You can’t just straight up tell someone you like them. That would be awful. What if they don’t like you back?
No. Instead, you do stuff to be mean. That’s what flirting is in high school. That’s how you get situations like what happened in Staten Island last week.
A 15-year-old boy at South Richmond High School allegedly farted at a female schoolmate. I’m guessing he was doing it to impress her. Dumb, I know, but that’s because high school boys are dumb.
This girl did not take his awkward advance in stride. Not at all. Instead, she swung a metal stool at the kid’s head, connecting like a boss. According to Gothamist, she then “punched the 15-year-old victim’s head about 10 to 15 times while cursing and yelling at him.”
Yea. Farts are gross.
The boy needed eight stitches. The girl has already become a feminist icon on par Beyonce and been charged with assault.
