I'm 16 and I can't stand internet language (wtf, omg, etc.) My sister actually talks like that when she's not on the internet, and it drives me insane. Also, my myspace page isn't all obscene and most of my friends' aren't either. Sure, there's occasional swearing, but nothing excessive.

Honestly, I don't think teens are any more "bad" now than at any other point in history, it's just that the "bad" stuff manifests itself in different ways in society.

"Badness" is all relative.

^ Exactly, I'm 15 and only a minority of teenagers are as bad as people expect all teenagers to be... most of them are pretty much as normal as the next non-teenager(ish)

20 years ago, a 10 yr old couldn't just go "online" in his room, and stare at porn, read how to get laid, etc. There were no Maxim magazines around for kids to read. This stuff really doesn't help a confused young adolescent understand the opposite sex and creates the wrong expectations about women. In order to get the Playboys and stuff, we had to work really hard to get our hands on it, and be really sneaky. Those skills gave us better work ethic and more appreciation for all our naughty stuff.

Eventually, they all grow out of this annoying stage, we all do, unfortunately, some kids lose their way in life during this time and become total idiots like ummm, Paris Hilton. Like anything, some teenagers are shitheads while others are amazing people with great qualities.

Hopefully, that will be the least of your worries but I doubt it.

Well, it's today's society... Turn on your TV and switch channel until you get one that an average teenager would watch. MTV perhaps ? What kind of things do you see there ? Ladies half naked and dancing, shaking their ass for money ? Then we wonder why our youth is all fucked up ahah... Nobody can tell what is wrong and what is right anymore and teens (generalisation) do what their friends do, what TV shows them or the net. We don't have the same parents we had 30 years ago either. Unless I'm wrong ? More permissive today.

But what really piss me off is not more the kids of 14 that dress like whores to go to school and act like they were already women of 30, but the fact that it doesn't seem to botter anyone. Woman's a toy, media shows it. But they do nothing and act like they're being shown. When you try to stand for your rights, they point you and say : "What a feminist ! Oh my god... you exagerate..."

I'm 17 and happy to have a head on my shoulders

This is an issue with bad parenting, not "bad teens" in general. If parents spend thousands of dollars so a friggin 10 year old can have his own PC and unmonitored access to the web, that's a different issue altogether.
