she looks like a mad max villain that did a lot of crack.
Nah she looks like an avarge enemy from rage 2.
I guess you could look at it two ways... she could just be doing what she loves...
...or she had a complete mental breakdown;;;;
hope she’s doing alright
I had both happen to me when I dropped out of college. The past few years have been... a journey, to say the least
She looks like a wasteland bandit.
She's come to deliver the deluge of blood
To be fair, it seems like this was inevitable. I know alot of girls who graduated looking like the left, went to college and look relatively the same.
I think most of this "college turns people crazy" stuff is just confirmation bias. Of course weird people make more of a splash online, doesn't mean most college students turn out like this. It wouldn't be weird if so.
There's a lot one can learn in college. But, as an "adult", what you choose to learn is up to you. You really ARE on your own. Honestly, I think it's better than ever, but the problem exists when you enter it with no real direction.
But honestly, I knew a lot of kids who just liked seeing how far they could push their new freedom, and if wacky hair/clothes was the extent of that? More power to them. I feel that the best cringe comes from the perspective of our own growth, in life. If you can't look back on your youth and cringe a little, then you're probably still cringe.
Lots of folks "find themselves" after they leave home and high school and leave their teenage lives/years behind.
If she had a breakdown, hope shes alright. If shes in the middle of finding herself, hope shes alright.
What happens is people are away from their families for usually the first time. They are exposed to a vast array of new cultures, people, and ideas. They are taught a deeper content and critical thinking skills than ever before as well. You add drugs and alcohol into this cauldron and its a wonder more people don't come out like this.
I'm trying to figure out what college has to do with this? Seems like a personal choice.
There's a hint of "america bad" in the post, and lately it's all such a desperate stretch, so you're right to be confused.

It's not college it's going from a small town to a much larger one in most cases. Get exposed to a wide variety of people and you can better find your niche
People finding themselves? 99% of women who go to college don’t change their appearance this drastically, but if they do; who cares?
Unfortunately it's so common for people to think that because women alter their looks drastically, it automatically means that they are mentally unwell. In many cases in high school you're not allowed to really explore your own style. College is the perfect time to have fun with your looks.
I know plenty of women who look like that and they're all successful with great careers.
Who cares? Just let the girl do what makes her happy and face whatever consequences that may or may not arise later. Education doesn't turn people into delusional psychopaths, like your title implies
Probably not enough considering this person dropped out and didn’t learn fashion lol
As a person who is mildly alt myself, I could tell that she probably was just hiding it. She didn’t “change”. She just was showing it all on the outside for once.
Also, in the left picture she's dressed in a cap and gown and did her hair and makeup for GRADUATION. This shows nothing about her appearance on any normal day.
Pretty girl adopt alternative style!?!? College bad! 🙄
Good on her for finding a style she's comfortable with showing
Girl I found attractive I don’t find attractive anymore? This must be cringe
This sub is full of pricks
It's slowly turning into another r/cringeanarchy
Ahh yes cringetopia mocking ppl for their looks
I went to school with her. Holy fuck. Small world
Any details you can share? I feel like there's a lot of context missing from this pic, and everyone is just making speculations about her.
Don't see what's so cringey about this. During high school, she was probably forced to look like and be who her parents wanted her to be, due to living with them. In college, people tend to experiment and discover themselves.
Is changing your appearance only cringe when it's not what men want you to look like??
maybe she’s happier like that? you don’t have to be a judgmental prick
Seriously. College is not for everyone and some people actually find their personalities after high school. She looks happy and as long as she’s not hurting anyone, what’s the problem here?
I graduated from a big ten university and girls were completely normal. You’re trying to push a bs narrative and you know it.
not cringe, leaving highschool where you have to be a clone to fit in, to entering college where you can be a new person who you WANT to be and finding yourself is the best.
I think she’s cool as hell what’s everyone’s problem with expressing and finding yourself I don’t get it
First time out on her own. Not hurting anybody, kids are going to experiment, hopefully safely.
Is everyone on this sub my fucking conservative grandfather or something?
Probably had overbearing/overprotective parents, and took the liberating freedom of the college experience a bit too far.
College does *not* make you like that
She’s not cringe, you’re just insecure
Exactly, nothing wrong with expressing yourself
Beth. 21. They/them. 🏳️🌈 ACAB/BLM. Capitalism=oppression
I had to go look. It’s: ❗️LA ❗️any pronouns ❗️20
I think it was a glow up lmao
She found herself...
nothing just people getting free and experiencing with themselves
What the cringe? Maybe the video was cringe but a side to side pic reference is just judging someone off how they dress
I'm fine with dressing how you want- but the hell that took a full turn from senior high-
Hey man just because you don't like it, doesn't make it cringe. She's beautiful, just in her own way. Let her be happy
If she wants to be that way, why not?
Funny how they think that posting their dropout on Tiktok is some sort of accomplishment
If it truly makes them happy then it is. Lots of people go to college because of familial or social pressure but don't actually want to go there. Making a big decision for yourself for the first time can be liberating.
So this is cringe because you personally no longer find her attractive. How sad for you.
What kind of stupid-ass Tucker Carlson caption is this??
This is just saddening.
It's official, this is the comment section that made me unsubscribe.
Yep, right there with you.
Can’t she do what she wants? What’s cringe about that?
Nothing... Lots of teens / young adults have adjustments like this
I perfer the second one punk chicks are the best
she’s talked many times about mental health struggles and expressing herself. there’s nothing wrong with what she’s doing. she dropped out to pursue something else, and just because you don’t like her style doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
Someone used their Financial Aid to splurge at Hot Topics.
Ngl she looks way more fun to be around now
cringe...why? because you personally don't like the way she looks now? let her live her life
This usually happens to people who have a financial backing to fall on just in case things don’t go right. People going to college to peruse their dreams and get a decent job usually don’t drop out unless they simply can’t keep up academically or financially. I remember a study that students who come from upper middle class to upper class families are usually undeclared or pursue an arts degree. People from low income usually pursue degrees that are higher paying like STEM degrees.
people are going broke for education that as far as i see, is just as arbitrary as everything else were taught before that.
This isnt even that bad to be honest. People go to a college, meet new people that they never had to worry about in high school so they get to be a different person without worrying about peer pressure from childhood friends.
Lmao I know some people exactly like this, who seemed totally mainstream and all that during hs then went through certain rapid evolutions during that freshman year
How is that the college’s fault? Lol
Right looks like the character on the cover of Rage 2
idk looks like she’s just expressing herself to me
I don’t think it was a college she went to.
Those are not even the same people. This is fake as fuck.
Dropping out of college in the USA to me would be the worst 100000000000000000000 dollars ever spent
She looks like a Captain Planet villain.
Colleges are indoctrination centers you see this shit a lot
How is this cringe all she’s doing is dressing alternatively and doing her hair alternatively. I don’t see anything harmful?
Good for her honestly, if she's being her true self let her live how she wants to
average californian homosapien
Hell, if she's happy, it's her life we can't just her because we don't like it.
College is not for everyone. As long as she’s not hurting anyone, what’s the problem?
No problem in this. It's just most people finds this cringe, whether it is or not. Just how they tell us not to get neck/face tats or else we'll have trouble finding a good job. Nothing wrong with those tats but most find them weird.
Why does it have the same amount of likes shares and comments?
Other side: “she found herself, nothing wrong with that”
The other side: “she was pretty, achieved a lot in hs, and couldve changed the world”
My opinion, she just changed. Both sides is a pro lol
Easy, kids aren’t living under their parents house rules and are able to experiment with their sense of self. Hopefully she gets a trade or goes back. Phases like this rarely last long and she’s still youngish (19/20)
Like there aren't plenty of uneducated freaks running around...
But yeah, keep blaming education.
They got comfortable with themselves and their style?? Y'all are weird
Why is this cringe?
Tik tok is what happened
Don't bring the Americas into this. That women has an issue no nation can help her with.
How is this cringe? She’s just being herself and not being full of herself or anything. Some of you man are so closed minded lmao
Left wing indoctrination
She is stinky.
Normal stuff is going on in American colleges. That’s why she’s not in college. She’s not normal.
As long as she's happy I don't see how this is bad. College isn't for everyone. Or is it cringe because she dresses differently than 99% of people?
Bro, here in Brazil you see right wing politicians using pics like this to turn the population against the public university, it's ridiculous to the point that a few ministers said stuff about public university being a "communist creator and public marijuana farm" which of course are just lies.
This is not common to happen or anything. She is doing what she always wanted the second she is outside parent's authority.
Not gonna lie, I think she looks way better on the right. I don't see why you see this as a bad thing, unless it's just typical "dyed hair punks are bad"
Imagine think you're better than someone because they don't fit the beauty standard (purposefully doing so can be very empowering) and decided a path in life wasn't right for them. There's only one clown here and it ain't them
Holy shit this entire sub is made of incels. Let women fucking live jfc
I’m American and I don’t even know
