    Rock Bottom Speech

For me, breaking up with a girl you only dated for a few months…

    Another negative influence should be emphasized here. Materialism stimulated by some reality shows threats adolescents’ concept of money,leading them to be greedy. Many reality TV shows have set up huge bonuses to encourage contestants. As a consequence, to get bonuses seems to be the only goal for them to participate in the programme.

    While she talks about bullying in her article she only leads towards women. Well actually her whole article is only about women but I feel as though it is also true to men.
