Against all the warnings, I decided to check it out. I’m not sure how I feel about it.
Maybe it was changed since it first came out because it isn’t what people told me it was exactly. Some details. It doesn’t look like anyone broke into anyone’s house except for the MC to do the hair dye shenanigans. Pretty much 100% certain I recall the girl being like, “Oh no! The packages must’ve gotten switched!” Or something to that effect, because she got his underwear, too…>.>
It was kind of a funny mix up, even though the guy was a bit of a douche canoe for not giving it back? XDXD
I feel like this story isn’t bad for the reasons I was told. It isn’t misogynistic to me. The guy is being kind of a bully to the girl, and she’s trying to get back at him, to no avail.
There’s a couple things skewing my opinion of it though. I don’t do gem choices much at all. I have done none in this story, and I don’t plan to do any, so I haven’t seen the seducing scene…even if I did do gem choices, I wouldn’t pick that one because UNCOMFORTABLE! …ahem, but that’s besides my point. ALSO, I am only on chapter 5, so perhaps there’s shenanigans far more messed up than getting your mail switched, accidentally seeing a dude naked because he doesn’t know what a curtain is, hair dye pranks, public indecency pranks, etc.
So far, I feel like the MC girl has done more messed up things than the guy has. She had an opportunity to moon him, LOL. She tried to make the entire school see the guy in all his naked glory, like…he hung an undergarment to a flag pole, shamed her for her comfy clothes…
What’d she do with his underwear, btw? That was conveniently glossed over. If I was the MC, I’d be much more concerned how much that bra cost. Like, bras can be expensive. If I saw it on a flagpole, hallelujah! I’d be getting it back XDXD
It is an understatement, I think, to say that it is common knowledge that women wear bras. It’s no different if the dude’s underwear was hanging from a flagpole. Teenagers are stupid and immature, lol, some of them would behave like that. In the end, it’s whatever.
I get that him not giving back something she paid for is illegal, sure. But the reason I’m lenient thinking about it is because as I mentioned, doesn’t she still have his as well? Can’t have it both ways. They’re both wrong as hell in this story, and it seems to be all in (quite messed up) fun, but it is funny to some people. Humor comes from dark places quite a bit.
It doesn’t seem like such a huge problem on either side because they’ve both done things that could have been reported to police or just any adult that could make these stupid kids quit being so stupid.
Am I missing something here? Please let me know. I may just be too daft to get what the big problem is, or maybe I’m just not deep enough into the story to be wound up by it.
