Average rating of the most matched results:
Sure, JoyRate isn't the government, but they're an institution. My point stands.
Right, like the initial review said, "people who want the government to control [those]...who ware not physically or emotionally abusing anyone are always the bad guys." JoyRate, please stop censoring random words. You allow so much harassment but draw the line at the word s*x. Really?
Cr*p, JoyRate censors every instance of the word s*x. Insane!
Please stop harassing people for their existence. Please stop asking for the government to restrict their rights. And no, your Christianity is no reason to act like a non-Christian towards an entire demographic of people. Yes, you're entitled to *personal* beliefs. If you believe you shouldn't act on homo***ual tendencies, that's fine. You do you. (If you actually aren't straight, please consider you might be missing out on a large part of life, but still, if that isn't justification enough, don't act on homo***uality.) Just *don't* force others to practice the same belief. This is America--not f*cking North Korea. The people who want the government to control people who are not physically or emotionally abusing anyone are always the bad guys. If you want this country to tolerate your personal beliefs, practice the same tolerance towards other beliefs. (Again, only beliefs that are *not* physically or emotionally abusing anyone.)
Kid Rating Ms. McGarrity
Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if this kid is a fat ***ist. If they are, I hope they can admit it because currently, their posts read like an aggressively homophobic person who can't face that they are gay. Aka a fatphobic person who can't realize they are into fat people
Kid Who Rated Mr. Englerth
Uh, you thought the kid who rated Mr. Englerth was bad? Listen to the type of people trashing on her...
go buy some rope and solve all your problems.
Kid Who Rated Mr. Englerth
Girl, not your fault! "Guidance" is in the man's job description. However, you do need to stop listening to people like Mr. Englerth in the future. Thankfully, I have faith you can do that. You sound mature. You've probably figured out your own worth now and can move forward in life without paying attention to overly presumptive people.
Honestly, your entire situation sounds absolutely awful, so I don't want blame you for anything...but still, let this be a cautionary tale to others. "Guidance" counselor is often a misnomer for these people when it comes to anything non-academic. (And for some, like Mr. Englerth, also when it comes to academics.) They love it when you confide in them about difficult stuff because then, if you see any success, they can feel like the hero who saved you. However, rarely are they genuinely helpful. I had Mr. Englerth. The man's been in the job for over twenty years--the only useful thing he can do is tell you what kind of SAT/grades (and in some cases, extracurriculars) most colleges are looking for...which Naviance can honestly just as easily tell you. I don't think he has the best understanding of what a lot of elite colleges are looking for (for me, he couldn't explain how to boost my chances at Cornell or Brown)--which is one of the few specialized pieces of info you would expect someone in his position to have. Or maybe, he just really hated me and didn't want me to have a chance at those schools. I ended up not applying to either because he advised against it. :( And what's worse, he legitimately misadvised kids about which colleges would be a "good fit." He assumed U of R would "potentially re-ignite mental health issues" because he's heard "kids are very focused on GPA and stuff there." I completely had the grades and scores for the school--and probably the personal essay too--I now regret trusting his advice. Moreover, I don't have mental issues--I was just in a narcissistic relationship that created circumstantial stress and led me to believe *I* was "the insane one." (I'm past it now. :) ) Honestly, no disrespect to the guy, but I need to be blunt. He's in a throwaway job! (And still failing at it.) He's so much better at "guidance" on the basketball court, so honestly, he should probably just focus on that. Please don't confide any personal stuff to him unless there's absolutely no choice; as much as it seems like I'm challenging him in this review, I acknowledge he's a kind man and genuinely wants to help kids. Unfortunately, he's not the most capable at that. And in general, I don't know that most guidance counselors are much better advice givers (when it doesn't come to academics). Sure, they're probably better at helping kids get into the colleges of their choice and less...presumptive in their academic advice. I've heard Mendon has some of the best ones (other than Mr. Englerth)...and I know so many kids who have had issues with every single one of the counselors at Mendon. Moral: never confide personal stuff to a guidance counselor--unless it's really, really good stuff that could *never* be used against *anyone* and could help them write a better rec letter.
ms.mcgarrity, is187, new york, NY
I must admit that you have a point. Being "oversensitive" is not a real state of being. Some are naturally more sensitive; others are naturally less sensitive, and no one's sensitivity level inherently makes them a better or worse person. That's why, in my opinion, "oversensitive" and "undersensitive" are not true traits. Do you know what does determine someone's morality though? How they *react* to others. When someone accuses a person of being oversensitive, they sometimes are getting at a very genuine problem: a person behaving irrationally. Namely, they usually mean that the "oversensitive" person complains about minutia rather than prioritizing more important issues--or that the person is simply being unfair in their criticism. I hate to tell you, but based on your rampant reviewing of Ms. McGarrity, it seems you take out quite a bit of anger on her for unfair reasons such as her giving you bad grades or her weight. That said, I do not like that she called you oversensitive because like I explained, there is no such thing as being "too sensitive." You probably will not be able to stop being sensitive, which--unlike Mrs. McGarrity would like to believe--is totally okay! :) However, you can change how you respond to negative influences in your life...including Ms. McGarrity. You can stop incessantly going on about people's perceived flaws, and you know what? People will probably take your criticism more seriously. When you write a logical review about Ms. McGarrity's unfairness, a review that doesn't shame her for her weight or how it must be her fault you got a bad grade--you will start to have real influence over people. If Ms. McGarrity really is a bully and incapable of teaching, your school's administrators may see your terrible-but-legitimate review and think, "Wow, we don't want her around our kids anymore. Let's fire her." So please try to use more logic--or risk continuing to make yourself look like a weak, entitled kid.
