While bullying has existed since the dawn of human society it certainly seems more predominant in contemporary society.
The Youth Risk Behavior Survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revealed that teenagers are experiencing record levels of sadness. The findings of the survey, which was given to 17,000 high school students across the United States in the fall of 2021, have shown that nearly three in five teenage girls felt persistent sadness in 2021, which is double the rate of boys. In addition, one in three girls have seriously considered attempting self harm.
These findings have prompted concern among mental health professionals and parents alike, with many questioning what can be done to help young people struggling with their mental health.
The survey found that teenage girls are particularly affected by feelings of sadness, with almost 60% of girls experiencing persistent sadness in 2021. This is double the rate of boys, which stands at just under 30%. The reasons behind this disparity are not yet fully understood, but some experts believe that societal pressures, such as unrealistic beauty standards and social media use, may be contributing factors.
The relevancy of this topic probably why this next video went viral. In it we can see two young women exchange harsh words to start with.
The crowd seems to be further agitating the two young ladies in question and encouraging combat. And the actual incident is instigated by a light shove at which point the girl that was yelled at finds confidence and instigates further.
She lands one straight on the jaw of her opponent clearly not afraid of conflict. The two then proceed to exchange all while standing in what appears to be a snowed in car parking.
The bully is quickly outmatched and drops down on the snow. It doesn’t end there either with the other girl mounting and asserting her dominance once again.
