|what girls chat about|
WHAT IS GIRL TALK? By Carol Natukunda Youth is the period of the most important decisions in life. It is in the youth that we decide choosing friends that help lift our thinking or lower it. Ideally, social pressure is a natural desire .The era of individualism that explored the girls frontiers have been left behind. This can be seen in every age group, especially girls. They huddle together, always tied up in some kind of conversation. Perhaps not for any thing big but girl talk. One day in high school, we had gone to a community church as opposed to the usual chapel prayers we would have at school. Apparently the church was full so a bunch of us did not get seats. Two girls decided to go in the compound and sat there instead. They seemed to be having a very good and funny chat. Once or twice, they burst into laughter. Betty was laughing as Marion narrated. John, our classmate watched with interest every part of their conversation. He thought he could easily join the two girls but he was pushed away. "Don't dare come, this is girl talk"they told him. So what is this girl talk? To a lay man it doesn't really make sense because after all one is entitled to a private conversation. However, the majority of the boys think there is definitely more to this than the mere talk. David Tumusiime thinks girls always gather to look for means of becoming superior. "Girl talk is the conspiracy of women to take over the world"says David. Yet some believe it is about rumour mongering. "They only talk about their boyfriends"says Michael "about who is going out with who and where they hang out." A year ago in a public speaking class, a lecturer told us it was okay for a girl to give a speech and give a short story say about her boyfriend. This, he said, would make the speech so interesting. Somehow, the class burst into laughter. And someone at the back shouted, "afterall that's what they talk about" Some people however view it differently. A girl, like everybody else is interested in some particular philosophy or ideal. One Juliana says, some want to know the trendiest clothes, get the recent hairstyle and know the latest slang. "You cannot get these things if you are alone,"she says, adding "gang up with fellow girls and it will be just easy". It is most probable that some cannot make their own decisions most of the time. So they prefer to make a group so they could always get answers from their friends. When you see them in small crowds there is perhaps not much they are planning. Probably whether to do homework or sneak out of school, to take a low grade, to cheat or to read hard and pass. But they will tell you that is what girl talk is. Tweet
