Issues of obscenity arise within the last weeks of school
By India Brelsford
In the past few weeks, there has been crazy things happening. With the seniors leaving in a few days, you cannot expect anything but craziness. Senior pranks, such as hotdogs thrown in the commons, are expected. Not to mention everyone whispering about when they are going to hang up the next poster. Better hurry up and pull out your phone, it won’t be up for long!
Students are reacting negatively with the school threatening to file police charges, not allowing the senior to walk the stage and 10 days of OSS/ISS if another poster is hung with filthy language. Did I mention there are cameras around the commons so they can catch who does it? This is ridiculous.
So basically the school is saying that seniors cannot hang up the senior poster that happens every year, but we can play unclean music at lunch? Seems like taking down the signs and taking drastic measures is worthless and hypocritical if you are going to allow music with the same words in it.
Yes, the senior signs can get pretty bad, but it is something that happens every year whether we like it or not. And I’m not saying that the things written on the posters are acceptable, but I don’t understand what the point is of ending something if;
A. You already know it’s going to happen.
B. Most teachers will watch them put up the signs and not do anything until everyone else notices.
C. We hear all these words every day, even if we don’t want to.
“I don’t see what the big problem is if it’s words we hear every day anyway. What’s the harm?” Senior Courtney Irwin said.
All I’m saying is, if you want to change a tradition in school, you can’t allow one thing and not the other. Change it all together, or just put up with it.
