I go to Ole Miss, which is, unfortunately, known as one of the top party schools in the nation. As such there's plenty of alcohol flowing freely around.
I'm not a partier. At all. I don't like it, it's not my thing, it's something that I, in no way, shape, form, or fashion enjoy.
i was having an argument with a friend over whether or not drunk consent in consent. Over the argument of if a girl, who is drunk, has consensual sex with a guy, is the guy at fault. Cause there are girls who will have drunk consensual sex with a guy, then when they sober up realize they didn't wanna, and say that the guy took advantage of her because she's drunk and even though she said yes, he should know better.
Here's my thing: If I go out and take some PCP and kill six people, I'm responsible for those actions. If you go out and get drunk you're responsible for every single thing you do while drunk.
I have zero sympathy for people who do stupid shit while drunk. You drunkenly stumble around and crack your head open on a sidewalk; no sympathy. You get behind the wheel of your car and throw yourself through your windshield; extra no sympathy.
The last guy to die on Ole Miss's campus was a dude at a frat party. He was drunk and throwing a Frisbee around. It went up in a tree and he went to get it, fell out, and landed on his head. Do I feel sorry for his friends and family? Of course. But I have zero sympathy for him.
Because no one forces the alcohol into you. We're starting to teach that you aren't responsible for your own actions. Like when someone calls alcoholism a disease. It's not a disease. It's an addiction. People don't call meth addiction a disease. And I have zero sympathy for anyone suffering from it because they brought it on themselves.
As I've stated before, I don't drink. Because I don't want to. It holds zero appeal to me.
And I don't look down on people who do drink. People who are responsible about it and over 21. Makes me wanna kick a baby when I see 16 and 17 year olds bragging about going out and getting shitfaced and partying. That just brings me back to my little bit about maturity.
Is it possible to get drunk and have a good time without being fucking stupid? Yes.
But unfortunately a great number of the people who do drink are irresponsible kids who don't know what they're doing and end up getting hurt or, even worse, hurting people around them.
So if you're an adult reading this who is of age and drinks responsibly, I commend you. You're doing it right.
But that's just my opinion.
