Posted ImageOkay, this will be a longer rant. I will do a TL;DR because I'm that mad. Normally I hate TL;DRs.Posted Image

So tonight I had a band performance and it was very emotional because my band teacher got a new job. I'm very happy for her, but I'm also sad to see her go, and I'm going to high-school. She is easily my favourite teacher, as she cares for everyone and puts 200% in everyday, and puts a smile on for everyone and is the kindest person I know. She has made playing in band as well as learning and playing the flute a fantastic time, and I can't think of a person in our band who she hasn't helped in a major way. Okay, she's a great teacher and a great person. Okay? Okay.Posted Image
Now on to what happened. I played the honour band, and all went well. The honour band in our school is an extracurricular band that we go to in 7:30 in the morning to play for. Remember when I said she gives 200%? Well, she does that everyday, and stays for about 1-2 hours after school in addition to what she teaches in school. So anyways, the performance went well, then it was time for our band to perform (our in school band) so we all went out and played, I nailed my small soloPosted Image, and as we are in grade 9 that leaves next year, we played last and she gave a great big goodbye to us, and we did the same.

Now here is what bothers me. As we were all standing around, waiting to thank out band director, (about 130 of us wanting to thank one person) one of the girls in my class noticed I wasn't crying. This WAS very emotional, and I was happy and sad at the same time. Now this girl, who had repeatedly yelled out comments in the middle of class that don't help in what we are learning, come up to me and starts talking about how she was happy to not have worn make-up, then turns to me and tells me I'm not crying. I replied, "Okay?" (now she has been in my class twice before, so she knows I don't cry that much anymore.) And she replies, "well no guy can call himself a man if he can't express his emotions and cry." Dafuq? Posted ImageAt that point I just shrugged her off, she has made terrible offhand comments before, so I've learned to shrug most of them off. Anyways, I got to thank my band director and got a picture with her, it was a almost perfect day/night.

Now my bitching rant. I can express my fucking emotions. I don't express them to everybody, so she can just just fuck off. Yes, a man CAN cry, but does that mean a man will bawl his eyes out every single time he feels an emotion? Mother Fucking NO! That would be like me going up to a girl and saying if she dresses provocatively that she is a whore. NO, IT FUCKING ISN'T!Posted Image Guys will express our emotions differently than girls. And I do feel emotions. So fuck you. I'm pissed off. (Should this be brought up in class? my class has some pretty intense debates, would this be good?) Anyways, I know her locker combo, might just go shit in her locker, or better yet, her flute. Did I mention I have 3 more year of band with her. FML. Now, SOMETIMES, and only sometimes, her comments COULD be useful. But a lot of the time it disrupts something (the class or band rehearsal, etc.) So yeah, I'm fucking fed up with this persons backhanded insults and stupidity.

TL;DR: This girl has repeatedly made bad comments and now has said guys can't express their emotions or cry so they aren't a real man. So I'm pissed.Posted Image Should I debate this in class when she's there? Might guilt trip her? (and I'm aware at my age I can't really call myself a "MAN," but you get what I'm getting at right?)

Since when does it make you not a man if you keep composure?


You can be sad about something and not ball your eyes out like a child.
It's all about the game and how you play it, All about control and if you can take it
All about your debt and if you can pay it, It's all about pain and who's gonna make it

Nice.

Also, OP, as a fellow (ex) HS band geek I'm pretty sure I can say with certainty that playing the flute is what makes you not a man... so no worries.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

I experienced this in 8th grade, when one of the girls in my classes dads committed suicide. All the girls were balling their eyes out all day, while the guys just carried on with our day. A few of the girls started to call us like terrible people and shit for not crying. What do they expect us to do? Sit there and cry for 7hours over a man that none of us knew?

Women I tell you...

I never get wipers, blood is hard to wipe off.

OP, I suggest that you just let the whole situation be for a while. You may think it is a big deal, but it is not and she will probably forget about saying it at all. Just relax and you will realize that it's no big deal.

also, as a band student myself...Your a guy playing the flute?! never seen that..Posted Image lol no offense just messin

First of all, learn a man instrument ;) (kidding of course, one of my good friends' plays flute)

Second of all, shitting in her flute is a good idea, and it would be hilarious if you actually did it. Although you might get in less trouble if you just left a deuce in her locker, which would be equally funny. Put her flute case RIGHT behind it so her refuses to grab it. Pics are necessary if you do it.

Finally, tell her off, and use logic to shut her up. It's easier than you would think.

Shitting in her locker, and shitting on her flute will fix everything. Then shit in front of her locker. Then shit on her doorstep and light that bitch on fire!
