She's a Slut, Don't be Friends With Her..

“mom, today I was talking to this girl at school, she was nice but my friend was standing behind her and she was looking at me like..”

Evangeline starts making the ‘cut’ motion, sliding her straightened hand back and forth in front of her neck.

Then she continued.. “when the girl left, my friend was like, ‘she’s a slut. Don’t be friends with her’. She said that girl had slept with a lot of people. My other friends were like, ‘yea’.

She was really pretty too, mom. She seemed nice.”


Evangeline tells me all this while flat ironing her hair, getting ready for church youth group.

I jumped in with a response pretty quick…

“Evangeline, do not listen to your ‘friends’! Ugh. That is what I hate about school. Crap like that!

Don’t let them tell you who you can be friends with or who is a slut!

Evangeline, did you know that I was that girl when I was in Junior High?

People thought I was slutty. But I wasn’t.

By ninth grade, my friends were the ones having sex, I wasn’t.

The ‘good girls’ that I was friends with were the ones sleeping with their boyfriends, not me.

If that girl tries to lead you down the wrong path, then you can choose not to hang around her.

Or you could try to be a good influence on her.

But don’t just listen to what others say.

Most of the time when girls say stuff like that, it’s bull crap jealousy stuff and not reality”.

I've started a new category, "Junior High Conversations" because I am sure there will be many such conversations like the one I had tonight.

I am hoping to get my friend Karen to post my favorite Junior High conversation ever, that took place between her and one of her sons...

stay tuned..
