It’s Not Just Girls Play

For century’s we have heard the term mean girls, and for most of us we have crossed paths with these types of girls in some form or fashion. Unfortunately the phrase mean girls “Bullies” has dramatically changed from the most popular girls on campus the girls determine whether your liked or an out cast, has transformed into violent relentless take no prisoner’s type of evil. Girls have new advanced methods of getting at their prey 24/7 via text messaging, Facebook, twitters which all can be accomplished on their cell phones, you know those devices we give are children so that if they have an emergency or if we need to get ahold of them we can. Because of these technologies we have made it easy for these girls to claim their doing no wrong, often they use others girls to inflict their pain also their violence does not include physical infliction.

No one said you must be friends with everyone but just because you don’t like that person does not gives you no right to hurt people. For examples girls love to share secrets with their girl friends, its something that seems to be coded in our DNA, sharing their deepest darkest secrets and fears believing they will be friend forever. “Wham” out of now where ever thing they believed as scarred between the two of they was now public knowledge. Tragically it appears that the more damage these rumors cause it ignites the bully’s desire to inflict more pain. Another way they will attack is by pointing and laughing at their prey with other students, also spreading tetras lies about them, sadly onlookers just walk away without saying a word to help the girl or to stop the bullies. So often when these girls cry out for help from...
