The Students’ Refusal to Wear Skirts, the Schools Demanded Show of Proof of Gender Identity Diagnostics from a Professional

Dress codes, hair codes, the students are, crying aloud now, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Awhile ago, there was the chairman of Chuangjing Technical High School in the weekly gathering of students, calling the students, “Sluts, fools, beggars”, the Department of Education had promised that the school will give a debriefing on the matter within two months.  But the Taiwan Youth Democracy Association received the complaints from the students again, said, that a male student’s bangs grew to under his eyebrows, and the homeroom instructor took a pair of scissors, and, clipped off his bangs in front of the whole class, if the ladies in the school refused to put the uniform skirts on, they were told to produce the gender identity formal diagnoses from a psychiatrist.

For this, the school claimed, that the students’ accusations are partially false; the Hsinbei Department of Education stated, that it will keep on monitoring the matter, and give a limit of time for the school to change its ways, and the school will be on the watchlist for recipient of allocated fundings from the government too; the Department of Education stated, that they’re setting up the specialist task squads, to make sure that the school is acting in accordance with the gender equality laws.

In 2005, the Department of Education had done away with the hair length requirements as early as 2005, at the start of this year, it’d sent the notices out to the schools, that the students are allowed to dress as they wished to, based off of their personal experiences of heat or cold, wearing the long-sleeve, or short-sleeve uniforms, and this law also applied to the private schools.

But, the Youth Foundation received the students from Chuang-Jing Technical High School, complained that the school had set many illegal rules for them, including, “the bangs of male students should NOT exceed brow lengths”, “as the weather didn’t turn cold, the students shall wear short-sleeve uniforms”, “the female students who don’t wear the skirts of their uniforms, the school demanded that they have a written psychiatric diagnosis of gender-identity disorder”, etc., and there were the male students whose bangs grew to lower than their eyebrows, that the homeroom instructor took the scissors, and clipped it off in front of everyone in class.  Even though the students had filed multiple complaints to the Department of Education, but the Department of Education never even investigated the matters, just too the school’s words over theirs.

what’s proper, and what’s, not

The technical high school responded, that there’s a dress code of the uniform, that they are allowed to switch their ways of wearing summertime or wintertime uniforms as they see fitting to them, that they’d not specified the seasons of change of uniforms, the students, if they have questions on the matter, can mention it to the dress code committee of the school for discussion; and toward all the students who’d broken the rules, the school had, gone by the means of Department of Education, and offered them the counsels, that the students accusations aren’t completely in line with what’s factual.

The Hsinbei Department of Education stated, that they’d found that the dress codes of the school did not fit to the rules, that it will continued looking in on the matter, and demanded the school make changes in the rules before the end of this semester.

And so, is this, a matter of displease of the students over dress codes, hair length limits, or, is it, a matter of, basic human rights?  These are underage minors, which means, that they legally, have, NO rights, and yet, the students complained, and the city government started getting hard on the schools, and that’s, just not right, I mean, would you allow a student with a tattoo on her/his arms, to sit in your class, from K through 12?  Yeah, I wouldn’t think so, there are, just some rules that are, unreasonable, and, these dress codes are set, for a reason here.

More than Twenty-Percent of Children & Adolescents Believe They’d Been Cyberbullied

How social networks became, a new source of, anxiety for these, members of the, younger generations, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

As the outbreaks slowed down, this semester, many school had started holding the classroom sessions, but the masks are still, a needed tool to prevent the spread of the virus across the school campuses.  Now, it’d been two months since the start of the school year, the masks had, blocked off the saliva, and it’d also, blocked off the interactions of children with their own, peers, some of the first year students hadn’t even seen their classmates’ faces, and can only “show their faces” on social media.  But, the children are even more worried over how they are looked upon on social media, and this became, a brand new source of their, anxiety, to even making them the victims of cyberbullying.

The outbreaks not only caused the graduation trips to get canceled, the graduation ceremonies, the first day of school all happened via webcam, that “sense of ritual”, gone, and a lot of the students sighed “there’s no beginning, or an end!”

With the slowing down of the epidemic here, the schools from all around the country started the physical classroom sessions.  But, entering into a brand new semester, in the past, to get to know the classroom classmates, there would be the name tags on the desks, and, by a week at most, everybody knew everybody, and now, all the students’ faces are covered with the masks, and, even though at meal time, they’re allowed to take their masks off, they had to eat with the plastic separators between one another, and, a lot of the students just, left their names on their desks, and even now, the students couldn’t call one another by each other’s right names, to the point of the teachers, miscalling the names of the students too.

A middle school principal told, that there’s no first-year student orientation this year, that there’s no morning school gatherings this semester, the students are “slower to warm up”, and, even as the instructors told the jokes, because they can’t see the facial expressions, the students normally, don’t react, and there’s, just, not enough of that warmth of exchanges that we used to get with each other.

And even though, almost all the students had a cell phone each, and the internet broke the barriers of interactions, a lot of the students, before school started, got together on the social media, to meet up as school resumed.  But, the therapist, Tseng told, that the children become, ever the more anxious on if they’re noticed on social media now, and this new trend may become a new source of their, anxieties, affecting the children’s level of self-confidence.

The Children’s Welfare League did a survey and found, that due to the outbreaks, the children and adolescents log online for an average of 42.7 hours per week, almost doubled from last year’s 27.2 hour.  But, more than twenty-percent of children and adolescent believed, that they’d been cyberbullied, with the primary way of bullying being “getting named by someone or attacked by someone for no reasons at all”, and there were only, twenty-two percent who would tell the adults, there are at least, twelve-percent that wouldn’t find help from anyone.  The Department of Education listed cyberbullying as a form of bullying in school last year.

Pai, the C.E.O. of Child Welfare League advised students on three things, she’d said, admit and accept, that you just can’t get along with everybody; and, you can use the app or the cell phone systems, to keep track of your own personal usage means of social media, to control the time spent; if you encountered something that’s negative that’s affecting you, then, you need to learn to view yourselves, using an unjudgmental way, to calm yourselves down, so you can, deal with the many challenges that life may bring.

Yeah, that, is another, downside to this outbreak, because everything is online, and, there will be, more cases of cyberbullying too, and, cyberbullying is really hard to prevent, because, you don’t know what you may have said, or posted online, that might get misinterpreted by another.

The End Results of a Horny Man Who Preyed on the Innocence of Teenage Girls: Three Years, Two Months.  Met a Middle School Females Student for Less than Ten Days, and Had Sex with Her

And, if you ask me, but hey, who ASKED Y-O-U!!!  Exactly, what this HORN dog got was still, way too, light, he should’ve gotten at least, a whole DECADE in prison and get chemically or physically, CASTRATED too, and yet, these teenage girls are still, way too, god damn, @#$%ING, E-A-S-Y these days, aren’t they???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The adult male, Hsu from Taoyuan, especially selected the adolescent girls as his targets, and chatted with them online, he had two prior records of guilty charges with underage minors, but he’d not, changed his ways, still set the baits on FB, met a thirteen-year-old adolescent female, and, within ten days of knowing one another, he’d, gotten her to have sexual intercourse with him; the courts believed that he’d committed these crimes for the second time by the same methods, although, he’d asked her for permissions to have sex, it’d still caused her psychological, and mental traumas, that there is a need, to enforce a harsher punishment on him, found him guilty of obstruction of sexual freedom, and sentenced him to three years two months, and this can still be appealed.

The investigators found, that on April 17th of last year, Hsu met the adolescent female on FB, knowing that she was not yet fourteen, that she wasn’t mature enough psychologically, less than ten days after they met, he’d asked her out, then, took her home, and, gone against her will, had sexual intercourse with her.  Later, as the adolescent’s parents found that she’d been having continual conversations with a stranger, they’d pressed her, and she’d told them, that she has a boyfriend, and that they’d been, having sex together.  As her mother went to the police, the whole case was busted, wide open.

During his trial, Hsu admitted openly to what he’d done, which matched the adolescent girl’s statements, and there were the records of their conversations on FB, and the rape kit result proved that the adolescent had had sexual intercourse.  The courts found that back in 2013, Hsu had sex with her the first time, he was sentenced to a year eight months, with three years’ probation, and back in 2016, he’d, had sex again, with an underage minor, and got sentenced to ten month, with no probationary terms for the second time.

The courts believed, that in the past, Hsu had multiple records of having sex with minors under fourteen, and had consensual sex with adolescent females from ages fourteen to sixteen, and this time, he’d still done it, which clearly showed, that he was a repeated offender, that there would be a need, for a severe sentence this time.

Hsu’s defense attorney argued that he and the adolescent were dating, that he’d not had sex with her that many times, and admitted to the adolescent’s mother, and begged for forgiveness, that he’d, qualified for the reduction of sentence based off of the mercy clause.

The courts found, that Hsu knew that the adolescents hadn’t developed fully mentally yet, and still used FB to hook them, and he’d done it twice, using the exact same methods, that it wouldn’t qualify for the mercy clause of the sentencing, didn’t give him a lighter sentence.

The courts considered, that Hsu had committed obstruction against sexual freedom TWICE, and still didn’t turn around, knowing well the impacts of the traumas on underage minors, but for the sake of his own personal satisfaction, he’d still had sex with the adolescent girls.  Although he’d not gone against her will, but it’d caused the mental distress, the personality formation problems in the teenager, that there’s a need for him to receive a harsh punishment, still charged him on counts of having sexual intercourse with underage minors, sentenced him to three years two months.

And no, this still was NOT his first time, and as he’d gotten out on probation due to “good behaviors” (as who wouldn’t behave her/himself in lock up!), he would be out, in no more than a year’s time, and guess what?  He’s going to, FISH, and HOOK them young and DUMB, unsuspecting, teens again, and so, by giving this PREDATOR this light a sentence, you’re ensuring, that he is bound to, offend again!  And there’s NOTHING we can do ‘bout that, as the verdict’s, final here!

Anytime, Any Place, the Hard-to-Prevent Cyberbullying

The means, of how the hurt can happen, at any time of day, and anywhere!  On the facets of, cyberbullying, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The school therapist, of the guidance counselor’s office of a school analyzed the differences in cyberbullying and physical bullying in the past, and reason why cyberbullying should be examined, more closely:

From before, the place where bullying happens is in school, and now, with a cell phone to a child, the bullying became at anytime, any place.  For instance, a middle school student, Hwa felt that someone stole her boyfriend, then, she’d called on her cohort of friends, started sending the private messages to the person, posting the words publicly, or go to the IG to start cussing the guy out, and even, setting up a “trash-talk” Line Group of the guy, and the victims may not even be aware, that a group talking trash about her/him/them exists.

The use of sexual violence for revenge online is getting serious too.  There was a sixth grade who’d received a message that said, “I have nude photos of you, if you send me another, then I won’t post this one”, the kid almost believed, but thankfully, the adults stopped it upon finding out.

The digital footprints will never be erased.  Like the recordings the videos of the photos, the things that makes you targets of bullies, once it gets online, so long as the onlookers started passing it along, even if the bully was caught and reprimanded, the files are forever staying online, and, the victims may be, revictimized again.

What’s worth noting more of cyberbullying is that the bullied already got singled out by her/his friends, and, when it goes online, the endless cusses, the criticisms, will make the victims feel, “So, all those people hate me, despised me, rejects me”.  And if the bystanders, the teachers, the adult counterparts didn’t catch the S.O.S. from the child, with “just deal with it, they’re, just, making fun”, to a child, s/he will die on the inside, because if those s/he trusts won’t even help, it would, hurt her/him, even more.

So, this, is on the adverse effect of being, cyberbullied, because once it’s online, you can’t, EVER, erase, that digital footprint that you’d, left, and, because these children have NO awareness of the foresight of the consequences of their own actions (b/c the prefrontal cortexes aren’t properly developed yet!), the effects are, eternal.

The Two Officers Fined $100,000N.T. Each for Kicking the Adolescents Refusing to Get Checked by Them, and Threatening to Shoot the Locals Who Tried to Stop Them from the Abuse

Abuse of their statuses as police officers here, and yeah, they got caught, and got, fined too!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Zhonghe Police Substation of Hsinbei City last April was conducting the checks on the roads, there was an adolescent who’d refused to get checked, and ran right through the checkpoint, the officers rushed to block him, the officer, Chen, kicked one of the sixteen-year-old on the head, the locals saw it, and tried to sop him from abuse, another officer, Jeng came, and cussed the locals out, and this was a case of overuse of police forces.  The district attorneys believed that Chen had used his work status, and assaulted the adolescent, considered that he showed remorse, and was willing to settle with the adolescent, delayed prosecuting him; Jeng’s indictment for threats and public endangerment was also, dropped, but they are both fined $100,000N.T., and mandated to attend six-hours of legal education each.

The district attorneys investigated, on the evening of April 7th at eleven at night, the police were conducting a check, a car refused to stop, and drove against traffic, the police chased and stopped the car, and demanded the four adolescents inside to get out of the car.

In the process, the adolescents became emotionally anxious, the officers called aloud to stop them, an officer had slammed two adolescents against the pavement, as the officers rounded up the four, they’d grabbed one adolescent by the hair, shouted at him angrily, “Are you hurrying to die.”  The officer, Chen started kicking an adolescent who was down on the ground on the head, causing the adolescent to bruise, and to have redness and swelling on his head.

because of the loud noises, the locals came out, and saw the police using excessive forces, and tried to stop them, “What are you doing?  Beating down on the children?”, the officer, Jeng was suspected of shouting back at the locals, “he refused to get pulled over, come down, I’ll, give you a bullet too!”, was suspected of threats, and breaking the public endangerment laws.

The D.A. reviewed over the video surveillance, which captured the officer Jeng stating: “You”, and “bullet”, without the “I’ll give you”, while the other local residents testified that they’d not heard the words; the local who was shouted at claimed, it was in a heightened state of tension then, we’re all stressed out then, and, we are rash toward one another, I’d not felt I was, threatened, the D.A. dropped the charges against the officer, Jeng.

As for the officer, Chen, the D.A. considered that he showed remorse, and the cause was the adolescent’s resisting arrest, that he became emotional, which caused him to overreact; while the adolescent only sustained minor injuries, and they’d settled, and so, they’d dropped the charges.

And so, because nobody was seriously injured (like getting shot, getting assaulted physically to injury), the officers only received the slaps of the wrists of getting fined, and what would that teach the officers from here on out?  Oh yeah, we just need to, step on the borders, but not over it, and we get off easy, this is really bad, just because the teens refused to get checked, the officers had no right, to use violence on them, besides, it’s not like it’s a case of in pursuit of serious criminals, it’s just some teens, breaking the rules, and too much forces by the police was used in this one!

The Children in Protective Custody Increased by the Hundreds Annually, Couldn’t Go Home, the Government Adopts Them Out

The Social Services of Hsinbei City estimates, that there is an increase of about a hundred young children placed by the social services annually, about eight hundred young children placed by the government, and cared for, by the government.  The manager of the Hsinbei Domestic Violence Prevention Center, Hsu stated, after the placements, the system will help the families of origin to readjust to be a good enough environment for the children to be returned back; and if it’s confirmed that the families can’t work, then, the children are, adopted out, the adolescents are trained to have a viable life skill that can help them live on their own.

Hsu told, that younger children who are placed out of their families of origin, means that the families aren’t safe, without the provisions of proper care for them, after placing the children out, “restructuring of the families” is an important task, so the help in finding work, parenting lessons, and setting up a resource provision system, like patching up the relationship among the members of the families, to provide more resources needed to care for the children.

Hsu pointed out, that the children in foster care right now, a lot have physical or psychological problems, like the drug-addicted babies, with the symptoms of withdrawal, developmentally delayed, A.D.H.D., then they would need steady medical treatment interventions, and the early intervention measures; if the child in at school age, then, the system also helps them in adapting to their new schools.

social services with young children they need to place…

This is, quite, contradictory, to the government’s “complaints” of how there’s a sharp drop in birthrate isn’t it???  Children in foster care, in social services, trending now, off of the Newspapers, translated…

Hsu said, other than the children growing up, the parents also need to have added abilities to them, to find other families as resources for help in caretaking, as all the requirements are matched, then, the children will get, returned back to the families of origins.  But the return to the families of origin is by progression, from supervised visits, waiting until both parents and children are stabilized, then, the return home steps are taken, slowly, increase the time spend at one’s own, families of origins.

Shortest, it’s a few months, longest, the children may NEVER be returned to their families of origin, Hsu stated, that there were the families with children placed out, in a short time, found a strong enough set of resources, for instance, other family members with the money chipping in, in two short months, the young children were, returned; but there are also the cases of after four, five years, the children still didn’t get returned back to their, families of origins too.

Hsu said, that if the families of origin are drug-addicts, with multiple times on record of prison sentences, then, these parents will get their parental rights, terminated, and the young children will get adopted out, from within the country, then, matching the children up with foreign families.  And, for children older than fifteen, and still couldn’t go home yet, there are the plans to help the kids to pay for their own education, to find work too.

And so, this system is, set up, quite well, and, this is also, very awful, because these children in foster program are on the rise by the years, and most of whom came out of families with teenage mothers, who couldn’t care for them.  This is the problem, that came out of teenage pregnancies, and there’s a need, to get these younger generations more educated on the matter, so they don’t keep on, cranking them babes out.

The Man Enticed a Teenage Girl to Have Sexual Intercourse, Posted that it was “Her Area of Specialty”

How this MOTHER @#$%ER got away a first time, and tried it a second time, thinking he could, get away too, but the adult woman didn’t keep silent like the adolescent girl he’d raped from before had, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man, Jiang used $30,000N.T.s to entice a fifteen-year-old middle school age girl to go to a motel, in the three days, they’d had sexual intercourse six times, afterwards, he’d not paid her any money, and posted on FB, her photo, her name, and stated how she was “a hooker for sale”, then the man played two roles, used the excuse of helping to get an adult woman work, gotten the woman to go to a hotel room, and threatened her that he had a gun on him, and, raped her twice, recently, the D.A.’s Offices charged Jiang on forced sexual acts and other charges, indicted Jiang, asked the courts to make his punishment more severe.

The police and D.A. investigated, Jiang (age 32) on May 17th of last, met the adolescent girl on FB, texted her, “I’ll buy a shot of your breasts and your pubic area for a thousand dollars N.T. is that okay?”, the adolescent was unwilling, he’d stated, “I’ll pay you $30,000N.T. for sex”, the young woman was too naïve, and needed the extra cash, and agreed.

For three consecutive days, Jiang took the adolescent girl to a motel to have sex with her six times, and he’d demanded her to have sex with him after he woke from his sleep, until the morning of May 21st, did he finally, release the adolescent girl for her to go home.

And, the following day, Jiang texted the girl, “I’ll, share this for you”, then, he’d posted the adolescent’s photo on FB, and disclosed her name, the school she attends, and, stated how she was a “professional hooker”, smoked marijuana, dating multiple guys at once, defamed her.

A few days later, Jiang used the exact same methods, used the friendship app on his cell phone, met an adult woman, played two roles, and fooled her completely, used the false excuse of helping her to find a job, gotten her to come with him, then took her to a motel, told her he had a gun, and raped her twice.

During the interrogations of the District Attorney’s Office, Jiang only admitted to having sex, was ambiguous on his making the threats, and that he’d raped the victims, and because the two victims’ testimonies were factual, and they’d saved the messages as proof, plus the police took the women’s clothing, and found Jiang’s DNA, and there were also the motel surveillance footages as proof, his rapes were confirmed.

And this still just showed, how men are still, going to RAPE, when the opportunities presented themselves, if they think they won’t get punished for it, because we women never tell anyone about what’d happened, when you mother @#$%ERS raped us, well, maybe those teenager girls are too fearful to SQUEAL, but grown women like us, we won’t take it!

Lo Received Eleven-and-a-Half Years in Prison for Taking the Adolescent Girls Hostage & Locking Them Up in the Secret Compartments of a Mansion

The verdict came finally for this LOSER who abducted the teenager, took her hostage, locked her up inside his family’s home!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Last year in August, Lo used the excuse of a job offer for the fourteen-year-old middle school age girl from Kaohsiung to head up north, locked her inside the secret compartment of his mansion in Hsinchu for sixty-six hours on end, drugged her, then, took sexually illicit photos of the young girl; the Kaohsiung district court tried the case, sentenced Lo to a total of eleven and a half years for his forgery of documents, and breaking the laws against child and adolescent sextortion.  Lo received ten years for drugging an draping two other teenage girls, after his arrest, he’d started, serving his terms for those two counts.

His nineteen-year-old wife, Yeh had helped him hide the adolescent girl, and lied about him being missing, charged with falsifying statements, covering up, she was sentenced to eight months, and can pay a fine to skip out of serving the time; Lu who’d helped transported the adolescent girl for Lo sentenced to a year and six months, the super of the mansion, Wang sentenced to a year and two months.

The verdict stated, that last April, Lo posted a want ad on the FB group, wanting to give someone the part-time work opportunities to play the online games, the victim girl saw the post, and privately texted him that she was interested in the position, and was then, targeted.

Lo lied that the manager of the company he was working for wasn’t in twice, that the individual had gone to Kaohsiung, had her fill out her personal data, and paid her a thousand dollars N.T. for it, after he’d gained her trust, last year on August 29th, he had her come to Hsinchu to find him, he’d mailed a cell phone to her previously, told her to use the cell phone to contact him using only it.

The adolescent girl was lifted by Lu to the location, taken to the secret compartment of the fourth floor of Lo’s resident, where he’d put an electric collar onto her neck, and threatened that he will zap her if she tried to escape, which made her fear, and didn’t escape, and gave Lu $3,000N.T.s to drive the adolescent girl’s phone all around, then, dumped the phone in Yonghe, Hsinbei, to mislead the police in investigation.

The police had found Lo at his home, Lo’s wife, Wang and Lu were charged with covering up; later, Lu was tortured by his own conscience, and gave the cops the facts, that there was a secret compartment in the mansion, that was how the police was able to, finally, rescue the teenage girl.

And, this LOSER still got off too easy, for getting this young naïve teenage girl to go to him and locking her up, and the trauma that this young woman experienced, she’s going to have to take a long time to finally, recover fully, and, no amount of punishment is enough, for what this LOSER did to the victims he took hostages over.

The Drunk-Driving Tests & Punishments Should be More Updated

A failed pursue, of a teenage girl, by a college student here, and the man got, hacked, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A junior in university, the twenty-one-year-old Wu, was in pursuit of a fourteen-year-old middle school age girl, and, was called out by the fifteen-year-old adolescent male, Yang, the two met around midnight to confront, Wu called along his friend Tsai, and, Yang had a gang of ten others, along with the girl who was Wu’s love interest, Wu was, outnumbered, and was hacked by members of the gang, had a laceration of fifteen-centimeters on his back, was rushed to the hospitals for resuscitation.  The police pursued the leads through the night, and, arrested ten, charged them with obstruction of societal order, assault, and sent them into booking at the Hsinbei District Attorney’s Office and juvenile court.

Based off of understanding, Wu is a junior in the music department of a university, he is currently in treatment at the hospital, the adolescent girl is in her second year of middle school, she’d told that she’d, told Wu that she wasn’t, interested in him, but he’d still, pursued after her; Yang was a dropout, and admitted to getting even for the teenage girl, called on the masses, to teach Wu his lessons.

The police of Banciao received a call at midnight, that under the Chengling Bridge of Huanhan Road, Section 4, a fight broke up, the special forces squad rushed over, and only saw Wu and Tsai (age 38) there, Wu sustained two tears of about fifteen-centimeter each on his back, the police suspected that he was, knifed, they’d had the ambulance rush him to the hospital, and after suturing him up, he was not in any life-threatening danger, and in the hospital for observations.

The police took Tsai in for questioning, that Wu met the fourteen-year-old adolescent girl, Yang, and showed an interest in her, but Yang turned him down, two nights ago, Wu bumped into the adolescent girl, Yang and her friend, Yang walking past the local park, and, he’d told her of his love, and she’d, turned him down, again, and the adolescent, Yang started, cussing him out, they started engaging, then, had a confrontation under the Chengling Bridge at midnight last night.

Wu only called on a friend, Tsai to accompany him, but, Yang found the twenty-two-year-old man, Cheng, and seven other adolescents, a total of nine, with the adolescent girl, Yang there too, there were the baseball bats, the machete being brought to the site too, and because it’s two against ten, Wu was, beaten up bad, and, was hacked on his back.

The police chased after the suspect by their getaway vehicle, and quickly, arrested Yang, and nine others, along with the adolescent girl, Yang in, sent them all to juvenile court for processing.

What PART of NO can’t you understand, she’d already told you, that she wasn’t INTERESTED, and you’d still, pursued after her, and, you got what you deserved, and yet, because you were hacked to injury, those teens who’d blocked you from going after that teenage girl were all, charged, and, they shouldn’t have, solved this problem with violence either!

A Beautiful , Yet Sad Story, Love in the Schooling Years

The love that didn’t get spoken in time, the love that passed on, with the death of that someone you liked in your, schooling years, and what his death had, taught you, translated…

One Day, I’d, Opened up My Closet, and No Matter How Hard I’d, Looked, I Just, Couldn’t, Find Those, Two Shirts, and because They’re of My Personal Collections, I’d, Not Dared Made it Open, Nor Asked Anyone, I can Only, Pull Out All the Clothes, and Prodded with My Hands, Inside that, Emptied, Drawer………………

I Just Want to Grab onto Something, a Strand of What was Left Was, Fine

My first love came to a halt, in an accident, that boy I liked in my second year of middle school, before we had the chance to exchange a single word with one another, vanished, without, a single, trace.

I was only fourteen, had absolutely NO clue of how the universe worked, I looked all around me, and saw, nothing, but the fogs, and so, I’d felt, that strong sense of helplessness, over this world which I’d originally, had a firm grasp over, I’d, wanted to, extend my hand outward, and fish around, for something, anything!

I was, close to the boy’s younger sister, she’d, worked her best, to sort through everything that her older brother had, left behind, in the countryside of Kaohsiung, everybody was living in poverty stricken means, they seem to be worse off than we were, and, what she could give me were, a couple of blurry photographs, two of her older brother’s shirts, and, the textbook that seemed to have never been, flipped through by him.

I’d carried these things as if they were, something, precious, with tentativeness and care, I’d, stashed the photo inside my diary, and, folded his clothes up to tiny, placed them to the depth of my own closet, and, I’d, read through all the pages of his textbooks thoroughly.  Back then, I’d already, read a ton of, novels, and among these, were the romances, and I’d, stubbornly held on to the beliefs of: he liked me, although just like me, he’d, never said aloud, btu he must’ve, stashed that feeling inside his heart, and, written some lines about it.

I can’t know his heart anymore, but, who knows, if he’d, only, written something inside the texts, as he’d drifted into space in class?

The summers in Kaohsiung, those, never ending, summer days, came together in a bundle, in front of the window, in the sunlight, I’d, flipped through the volumes page by page, Chinese, history, math, geography……………the class of loose students, there was only the difference of the colors of the pages being pure white, and yellow.  The schemata which were, activated in my mind, and for every horizontal stroke of pen, I’d, immediately believed that it was the first stroke of my own last name; and yet, the young boy didn’t even leave a dot of his ballpoint pen.

And so, I can only, return all his textbooks, to the past.

And so, what remained, of my first love, were the two shirts, three photos, a newspaper clipping of how two middle school boys drowned by the oceans, along with that locked diary, crawling with my handwriting ink.

No Blackhole, Nor Boy in Hiding

One day, I’d opened up my closet, and can’t find those two shirts no matter how hard I’d tried, and because they’re, my private stash, I’d not dared, asked anybody, and can only, pull all the clothes out, and, prodded into the drawers now emptied, with my own hands, that maybe, there was, a blackhole inside, that swallowed everything that didn’t belong; or maybe, there’s, that secret tunnel in the back of my wardrobe, that the boy didn’t die, he’s, just, hiding, and, came in the middle of the nights, to pull his own shirt away, wanting to tell the girl: hey, I’m still here, in some corner of this world.

Then, the diary I’d kept at the bottom of my desk drawer, seemed to have moved around, I’d taken it out to look, the locks were cut off, and the photo, the newspaper clippings, all gone, and the smeared pages I’d written down as I cried, were all, torn off, perfectly.

Okay, okay, there was, NO blackhole, no mystery, no boy hidden, the one who’d, wiped it all away was, my mother.

My homeroom instructor must’ve called my parents about this, and in the heat of anger, my mother swept up my room, got rid of everything that she deemed as obstacles in my life, everything I’d, hold too dearly to my mind.

For the first few years, the boy was buried in that tiny cemetery in the bamboo forest, in the middle of the fields, then after the bones were collected, the headstone removed, then, the fields, the bamboo forest got turned into a huge, construction site, then, the concrete jungle came atop, there’s no place for me, to remember him then.

Then, what I wrote, it will do, right.  I’d written everything into a novel on BBS, and everybody liked it, it’d reminded the readers of everything in their own, younger, years, I’d even, published it, sold many copies too, but a few years, the book became, out-of-print, and, forgotten, by the, world then.

So, everything with a set form, disappear eventually, no matter how hard you’d tried to hold on, that handful of sand still, slips out.  I’d prodded these past two years, even the parents of the boy had both, passed on, and, those who’d remembered the guy’s smile, got reduced by two more people, will we all, not leave, anything behind, one day, just spreading out palms out?

No, maybe, there’s, something that’s, evolved, and now, I’d not rummaged through my daughter’s closets, drawers, or read her diaries anymore, to not throw away anything she’d, stashed away in secret.

To protect someone’s complete forms of her/his youth, that was, what that boy who’d died too young had, given to me, a life-long, gift.

And so, this lesson from this boy you liked who’d died, taught you a lesson with his death, that love is precious, that you must, take a hold of the love you want to hold onto in the now, otherwise, it will, slip away too quickly, and, you’d also, learned to, NOT read your own teenage daughter’s diary, to let her have her private things, that only she is aware of, because your mother didn’t respect your things!
