Using tech to save lives

By - juliagarcia 0 Comments

Today’s teen girls are experiencing pressures, competition, and girl on girl crime unlike any other generation before them.

The pressure to be “liked” and “followed” is not only just as critical as it was in past generations, but its’ now been crafted as a tool to keep them constantly focused on pleasing and winning the affection of others. It’s systematically a ploy, as Founding Partner of Facebook, Sean Parker admitts, “it’s a social-validation feedback loop … exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.”

The pressure then leads to the competition, but not exactly the friendly kind you see on the courts or running for class President. This kind of competition is cut-throat and disguises itself in a hypersexualized culture where sexy pics in bathtubs and smoking vapor on your Finsta account far exceeds being smart, talented, or strong-willed.

And then there’s the good ol’ fashioned, girl on girl crime. Today it looks more like glorified trolling, shaming, and cyber bullying so detrimental to your social experience that you not only sit alone in the cafeteria but too many young girls (and boys) have taken their lives over it.

20% of kids cyberbullied think about suicide, and 1 in 10 attempt it.
