As Admin to CJC’s cybertambayan, I feel ambivalent to the eventual collapse to Vincent Sevilla’s self-titular facebook group. Most particularly when it comes because of minor* arguments which we can always cough up to youthful exuberance. Judging the incredibly non-aggresive and peaceful orientation of the school, I can’t help but laugh to what lengths the administration is restraining human nature. Since you really can’t force human nature; all we can do is but guide it.
Coming from a more liberal environment where dissent is not only allowed but in a way celebrated, I feel this whole brouhaha is an overreaction. A landmark event which is deserving of my brand of vitriol. Kinda like the time when I walked out in Elementary because of pedagogical differences.**
* I use minor here because I’ve seen a lot worse things worth fighting over.
** Namely, fidgeting examination results. Which apparently was scuttled thanks to a non-cooperating teacher. Wonder how that worked out.
Link relevant: if you think our school though is the Catholic Taliban’s Madrassah check this high school out. They don’t believe in tampons. Tampons!?
