Teens Talk Back

I spent more than an hour to find examples of teens talking about teen related topics.  I think teenagers are like any other groups that share their opinions and feelings with other people in the internet. 

I found videos about bullying  interesting.  In one of the videos a teenager was talking about his cousin and how he was bullied.  In the second video a group of high school students created a series of skits and sketches to prevent bullying in their school.  This project was very creative and showed their sensitivity for bullying.

Bullying is a serious problem in our schools. As we discussed "Adolescent Masculinity, Homophobia and Violence" in class,  the understanding of masculinity in the dominant white middle class culture is an important factor in bullying.  Also as we saw in the TV series Glee, most of the times adults, such as teachers and administrators do not do anything to prevent bullying.  Nevertheless, the videos I share here shows that teenagers are concerned about bullying and how it affects their friends and relatives.
