High school is a tricky landscape to navigate.
This next clip brings to mind an old warrior proverb, “Walk a mile to avoid a fight; but when one starts, don’t back down an inch!”
While we don’t condone outright violence or fighting. Something does well up inside of you when you see someone stand up for themselves.
In this video we see a cheerleader, sitting and being harassed by a classmate.
“Do you wanna fight?”
“No! Nobody wants to fight!” the cheerleader replies strongly, “Nobody speaks on you guys. Nobody talks about you guys!”
The other girl again asks, “Are you gonna fight? Are you gonna make me?” and she hits the cheerleader on the side of her face.
“Don’t F****ng touch me. Don’t F****ng touch me!”
She hits the cheerleader again, and then the cheerleader stands up and fights back.
What ensues is the cheerleader standing up for herself and refusing to be pushed around.
The cheerleader’s older sister recorded the fight on her phone, and posted to her Twitter account where it has over 8.5 million views already.
“So my little sister got in a fight tonight and i don’t think i’ve ever been more proud 😂😂 with her phone in her hand & everything lmao THATS MY MF SISTER LETS GOOOOOOO”
Reportedly the cheerleader will not receive any disciplinary action for the fight.
