‘Tweens Behaving Badly


Even if ‘tweens totally terrify you, you must show them some love for what they consistently do well—they bring the mother-effing ruckus. No matter what year, no matter what conditions, no matter what cute boy is involved, ‘tweens are kind of like cockroaches. Nothing on earth can keep them from causing a hysterical scene over the objects of their young affections. This past Friday, 3,000 ‘tweens rioted at a mall in New Jersey on Long Island. Arrests were made and a few were sent to the hospital after lots o’ screaming girls went apes**t—pushing and shoving just a bit too much, possessed with unbridled passion. Who were they getting all hot and bothered about? Teen singing sensation Justin Bieber. Is it bad that I don’t know who he is? Poor Justin had to turn around and leave after security deemed it unsafe for him to enter the building. Check out this video filmed by a ‘tween on the scene. Wait, is that Justin Bieber in the background, butchering “Love Fool,” originally by The Cardigans? Oh my … ‘tweenagers sure are interesting mini-people. After the jump, some more tweentastic moments. Keep reading »

Tweens And Teens Victims Of Dating Abuse

The sad, sad results of a national survey showed that about 3 percent of girls between 12 and 17 said they had been the victim of dating violence, which includes physical abuse, sexual assault, and being threatened with a weapon. In the same age group, 0.6 percent of boys said they’d been a victim.

According to the findings, certain factors, such as a history of stressful or traumatic events, seemed to put teens at great risk for dating violence, and older teenage girls were at greater risk than boys or younger girls. The last bit is interesting because it seems that as we get older, we should understand more about what is okay for people to do to us, and what crosses the line, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Either that, or the guys get more aggressive around that age, too. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Beyonce Plays Dress Up With Your Kids

If you can’t trust Beyonce to not tart up your kids, who can you trust? The singer has a line of clothing called House of Dereon — which is horrible, by the way, I have tried it on at my discount department store and BLECH — and she’s now releasing a line for little girls. We expect such things from Disney, but B? Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no no. [Pop Gumbo] Keep reading »
