Alright. So, throughout this blog, we have had nothing but positive thing to say about good ol' Sadie Hawkins.
That changes now.
Listen to this story about how one girl's life was ruined by Sadie Hawkins.
This girl's name was..yep, you guessed it..Sadie.
Her name was Sadie, and her dance was coming up. It was a Christmastime dance during her sophomore year of high school. She had never been to a school dance, because whenever she'd want to go, a group of popular girls used to bully her and threaten her so much that she was too afraid to go.
Also, she wasn't very pretty. So she never got asked by a boy.
But this time, she was determined. She didn't have to worry about not being asked, the ball was in her court. She heard an inspirational talk by Beyonce and took that as the universe telling her she should ask the cutest boy in school to go to the dance with her. His name was Jeremy.
One day after school, as she was walking past Jeremy's locker, she saw her chance. She slowed down, clinging to the textbooks against his chest.
He didn't hear her. She tried again.
He looked up. "Oh hi, Sadie." He smiled. "How are you?"
As soon as she started to respond, she heard a gasp coming from behind her. And there she was - Tiffany, the head of the hot-headed meanie faces.
"Jeremy!!!" Tiffany yelled. "Don't talk to her!"
She ran over and pushed Sadie into the locker. Jeremy's eyes widened. He was scared.
"Oh, I'm sorry Tiffany. I didn't mean to make you mad. I won't touch her again...just please don't hurt her, okay?"
Tiffany rolled her eyes. "Shut up, you big loser!!!"
At that, Sadie knew what she needed to do. That night, she went home and overdosed on her mother's painkillers.
I'm Nicole. I believe that women should have the right to ask a guy to dance whenever and however they'd like. If you agree, cool. If not, read my articles and consider my position. It's a good one.
