Letter to the editor: Stop complaining, please


    Jordon Burton Bluefield

    I am writing this letter to show my disgust with some of the BYU community. Is complaining all you people ever do? If it’s not about the cheerleader’s uniforms or inappropriate movies, it’s about something else that you have no control over.

    After reading the article about respecting the flag and those who don’t should be kicked out of the university, I felt inclined to write this letter. With all the work we’re supposed to do here at the university, I’m sure you people can find better things to do instead of complain and whine. Seriously, some of you people would never last in the real world because you’d be too busy worrying about people who don’t hold their hand over their heart during the national anthem.

    There are several different ways to show your respect to the flag at this time. Cheerleaders salute, players bow their heads in thought, but respect can be shown in many ways.

    While we’re on the subject of cheerleaders, whoever complained earlier that our cheerleaders skirts were too short must not have seen any cheerleaders from any other university. UTEP cheerleaders were wearing nothing more than a colored sports-bra. I feel that our cheerleader’s uniforms are very modest, and anything more would inhibit them from doing the types of maneuvers they do comfortably.

    I could go on and on, but the main point I would like to get across, is that some people need to quit complaining over things they have no control over. Just deal with it. If you don’t like a movie, don’t watch it. If you don’t like a book don’t read it. If you think a girl’s shirt is too tight, don’t look at her. Please grow up and face the fact that the world isn’t perfect, and neither are we.
