This article shows that gender is a huge part of adolescent drinking, mostly because girls are more attention seeking when it comes to sex and partys if theyre involved.

Isabel Bodey's curator insight, May 13, 2015 4:03 AM

This is very shocking to see that girls feel they have to prove themselves too the boys in saying they can drink more alcohol. In actual fact girls cannot handle as much alcohol as boys can so they are doing themselves much more harm by drinking heaps of alcohol than the boys are doing. Girls need to respect themselves a bit more and know that being drunk and throwing up everywhere is not a pretty look and does not attract worth-while men.

Binge drinking is associated with mental health disorders and teenagers who binge drink in highschool are more likely to binge drink in college. Teenage binge drinking can also lead to brain damage. I think this is extremely dangerous and I am alarmed because many teenagers are starting to binge drink.

Mackenzie Roberts's insight:

In class we covered most of the issues talked about in this article, it talks about influences that are relevant to me and easy to relate.

Alcohol causes unneccasary problems socially and physically, the main message here is if you do drink, drink sensiablly and make sure you are away of what happens to your body and life. Teenagers drink to be accepted and the main issue here is peer pressure, teenagers need to learn how to say no and have self confidence in pressured situations

Teenage girls are ‘selling sex for alcohol’

TEENAGE girls are offering sexual favours in exchange for alcohol and drugs, MSPs have been told.

Via Infidel Patriot
Mackenzie Roberts's insight:

Teenage girls are more likely to be taken advantage of when intoxicated, so statistics show girls sell sex for alchol because they know majority of the time guys will be interested. this causes many social problems like unwanted pregnancy or unwanted sex that they then later regret and self-loath themselves because of it. This may cause suicidal thoughts or mental issues so we need to consider the issues with legal and illegal drugs

My opinion is that teenages will do anything for alcohol at this point in there lives. As soon as they get addicted they can barely control themselves and not many can recover and normally have a terrible life.

Isabel Bodey's curator insight, May 13, 2015 4:09 AM

This is so sad that girls are in such need for alcohol that they will sell their bodies to undeserving men. When they are intoxicated they are taken more advantage of and this could all end up in unwanted pregnancy's which could result in an abortion. Due to this mistreatment  and perhaps abortions depression and suicidal thoughts come into their lives and may result in some very serious outcomes. And to think all these harmful things just for a drink of alcohol on one particular night.

There will always be teenagers who will rebel and drink underage so associtiations like schools focus on educating minors but social networking influences us in more ways than we realise, same with our friend groups.
