Day 27 –> 20 Me!
I hate Torture. I hate Hazing. Can someone explain to me the real meaning in this?
Hazing is the practice of various rituals and other activities involving harassment, abuse orhumiliation used as a way of initiating a person into a group.
That’s according to the Wikipedia. It is some sort of INITIATION. Before a person becomes part of “their group” that person must first go through those “rituals”. They are mostly done by harassing, abusing or humiliating that person.
But that sounds wrong — right?
Looking through — arrgh! I’m sorry, my dad just looked at what I’m typing and needless to say, I’ve lost my train of thought and I can’t seem to get it back… you see, this is why I don’t like when people are looking what I’m doing when I’m not finished… cos I don’t want to do it anymore!!!
I’m fine now…
As I was typing, before I was disturbed, hazing seems like a bad thing when we look at those harassments, abuses and humiliations especially when someone dies in the process.
In their defense, they claim that hazing is a mildly traumatic experience intended to produce a bond within members.
Mildly traumatic… you don’t say.
Well, I guess pride is also to be blamed. When a person is asked if he/she is a member of a group or if he/she survived hazing, they proudly show their scars. I guess they think it’s a good thing — well, let’s say it is, being a part of something is good. They consider each other as brothers and sisters.
It’s good to be part of something…
But why HURT?
Is it because of the phrase that the things you won’t take care of something you get so easily?
Was it because they think that the new members, the future head of the groups would be “weaker” and would therefore erase their “manly” aura and would label their group as a bunch of “sissies” ?
Well, that would depend on them. I don’t really like torture. Any kind in that matter. Physical, Mental, Emotional — I’m weak in these things, especially the latter two.
The thing that really disturbed me is that they end up killing.
Cos, lest we forget, these people, these aspiring new members, they agreed to undergo this HAZING thing. They know what’s going to happen. It’s not even a secret thing anymore. They know it will be painful… but I guess, they didn’t know their own self.
Maybe, they thought that their “masters” would stop if they say so or if they think they’ve done enough — Well, those people, have probably thought the same thing when they were being initiated and was disappointed and now has taken it into their “initiates” to make them feel what they felt.
Also, although this is just my idea, maybe they really liked hearing people plead for their lives… to hear people scream when they hurt… maybe that’s what drove them into a whipping frenzy.
I don’t know.
I have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about to be honest with you.
I’m puzzled as to why are these things happening.
And although we have an anti-hazing law, still, everyday, many people are joining them.
Why do you think this is happening? What’s the reason???
I think I need to research on this topic more. It’s giving me a headache.
