PREEPS - Guest - 05-14-2004 12:03 AM

Preeps are everywhere in school but my school is very small and then are about 25 people per grade. so around the end of my senior year we had to do out portfolio and they said if you got a 3 or a 4 on it (1-4 grading scale) you would be able to leave school and go to a musement park in cincinatti. so everyone tried there best and guess who the only people that got to go the PREEPS. it makes me mad to see this go on and on throught my life.. so i am outraged.. and frustrated with the school system.. and everyone else is that did not get to go.

my school is Augusta Independent in kentucky.... tell me what you think of this..MadMad

Now, I'm not entirely sure what "PREEPS" are; I'm guessing you were trying to label those oh so "popular" teenagers(preps). I heard that one before; "You're such a prep!" "Fuck preps!" "Go to hell you prep!" etc. etc. etc. I've been called a "prep" before. And to anyone who calls me one or thinks I'm one, I like to say, "Fuck off." I'm sorry I get decent grades in school. I'm sorry I dress in a civilized manner. I'm sorry I have an intelligence that surpasses that of a five year old. I'm sorry... Wait, No I'm not. There are those who would like me to feel bad about those things and I just think, "Fuck'em." I'm not going to worry about what they have to say; I got shit to do.

Anyway, slightly changing the subject, it seems to me that most "preps" are usually the ones that have all Honor classes, are smart and witty, arrogant, and are very popular amongst the other students. If this is how it works, than perhaps those few "preps" really did do good on that "portfolio". So maybe they did deserve to go out and have fun. Maybe.

Anti-Prep - Optik - 05-27-2004 07:43 PM

I remember news from last year, when all of my high school was in turmoil with the surfacing of an "Anti-Prep" movement. They (that is, the members of the Anti-Prep Movement) used the anarchist "circled-A" as their logo, so to speak, and were constantly disrupting the activities of said preps. I wish I could've been around to witness this first-hand, and I'm still looking for the remnants of the organizers behind it. Unfortunately, many were seniors and juniors, I believe.


now hold on a second... - Guest - 07-14-2004 01:14 PM

Preps are those who imitate teenage pop stars such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Hillary Duff, and so on. Then, they look down on anyone who doesn't follow their example or look up to them. This has nothing to do with intelligence. This has to do with likes, dislikes, numbers, and outcasts.


Frankly, I believe that preps should die, as I was an outcast as well. I was smarter than any of them. The only reason they hated me was because I didn't like the same things as they did and didn't worship their "in-crowd". I was bullied so much I turned suicidal in the 3rd grade.

So, yeah... I hate preps... I want revenge...


revenge - SoulRiser - 07-15-2004 10:19 AM

revenge? yeah i had all sorts of revenge plans for my bullies. but i never got around to doing any of it, and i think it's better that way. i never see any of them anymore, for all i know they don't even live in this town anymore. being a prep or bully is immature, and i think revenge isn't really much better either. i did get revenge on a few ppl before, and i actually felt like crap afterwards :(


I thought preps were private school students - Guest - 07-16-2004 12:20 AM

I'm not sure when that crossed into popularity groups. Preparatory schools comes to my mind whenever someone says that.

Prep originally referred to members of preparatory schools, yes. However, as what happens with alot of words now, the meaning has changed to mean those who follow this stereotype developed by the general media. As such, preps usually act the same, talk the same, dress the same, and hate/like the same people. Preps like- Jocks/other preps/people in a position of authority (get on their good side, you can take advantage of that). Preps hate - Geeks, otakus, goths, anyone with any REAL intelligence, and so on. Basically, people you'd expect to get outcasted.

and as far as revenge, not getting it in my situation feels just as bad.

another thing... preps usually don't last long outside of high school. Usually what happens is that the support system that they relied on to get through school is gone, mainly because the popularity system doesn't transfer over well to college and real life. The preps, unlike what they would have you believe, are not the intellectual great crop of the school. They are merely weak-minded fools who cannot be themselves. They imitate this stereotype because they fear that everyone else will dislike their personality. They can also be called "trend followers", "the "ra ra" crowd", and so on. The reason people hate this group is obvious... the prep/jock crowd tends to hate everyone else for the dumbest reasons, such as not wearing abercrombie fitch clothing, not watching MTV, not liking Rap music, liking anime/science fiction, and so on.

It looks like there's a lot of prep bashing here... just thought i'd give my opinion... at my school, "prep" is another word for popular people. Some of them are rude and mean, but others are very nice people. They just are popular. Some get popular by being nice to people. Yet, people hate them because of that popularity, and the media. A lot of kids shows like to show the "evil popular person" tormenting the "cool but less popular" person. Shows make it seem that all popular people are mean, but that is not the case. A lot of people believe it is, though. 3 years ago, I was in the eighth grade. I had some "friends" who were convinced that all popular people were evil. I don't know why. But they acted like it was cool to say stuff like "death to all popular people!" and similar things. We'd talk in class, and they'd point out people that they thought should die. These were perfectly nice people, too (the "preps" ). People who I'd never seen say bad things to others or treat them badly. It just seemed scary and sad. I dunno why i got off on that topic. I just know, if someone treats you badly, that's a decent reason to not like that person. But, just like you would not like to be labeled by preps, don't label the preps as mean/stupid either. They have their own interests, and you have yours. Acceptance is good ^_^

good point Emie. i do recall one or 2 popular people at school that were actually nice, tho unfortunately back then most of them were indeed nasty scumbags Cry


Oh so there's hope yet in a few 'Amerikaner'? - Guest - 08-30-2004 02:55 AM

"Krankes Gehirn" your Gehirn is not quite krank enough, yet. To be truly pure in what you seem to be perhaps you should learn to despise your US "friends". After all Adolf Hitler RIP surely would have not wanted such a fanatic as you could be to have your fanaticism dampened by the dull american dream. Think, who are the modern day "untermenschen"?
