So, this is an article that a few of my friends have been sharing on Facebook. Since it's been popping up on my News Feed so much, I wanted to know what the peeps of the Scarleteen community thought about the topic that's being addressed here? Hookup Culture Is a Thing Rich White Kids Do

Gee, its name on its own gives itself away as being completely group-ist (discrimination on the basis of a social group, including race).

Just FYI, we generally ask that people not link to Jezebel and other Gawker sites here. It's simply not a media conglomerate we want to give traffic to, for a host of reasons -- including how tabloid it all is, so nine times out of then, the content is, unsurprisingly, awful.

Thus, I'm not even clicking over to see what crap they have there this time. I'm sure it stinks: it usually does.

Hi WesLuck and Heather!

I'm terribly sorry if I offended anyone by linking to that article or site. That truly was not my intention at all (especially considering I don't really agree with what it said)! I'll make sure in the future to not link to sites like that.

If you'd like, you can feel free to take this thread down.

Not offended, no worries. And you wanted to talk about it, so I'm okay keeping it up, just making an ask per linking in the future. [Smile]

Ah, I see. Okay, I'll make a mental note to not do that in the future! [Smile]
