Obnoxious teens.

I am at the mall sitting eating a snack. There are two teen girls sitting near me. They are taking photos of people that walk by whom these girls deem gay, fat, ugly, or poorly dressed and apparently posting them as they are discussing captions.

I wonder who taught them that.  Probably their parents.

Not likely. Teens think for themselves by that point

Yep but their upbringing definitely had a way of help forming the way they think. ;) It didn't just come out of the blue one day.

That's sad. They're probably very insecure about themselves.

That sounds about right. I work with this age group, and while this behavior wouldn't fly AT ALL, ever. But yeah, sounds about right. I honestly don't think that they need to be taught social agression, and again, if being honest, I don't find teens behavior any worse these days and this article does a really good job of discussing the topic.

I also think this article does a good job discussing the teen brain in an understandable way. Teens are smart, and savvy, but my word, they can just be so bloody dumb sometimes.
