Some say today's modern teenagers are as deviant as ever before. The counter culture formed around deviant behavior is as prevalent and as ingrained in our society as anything. So what causes this deviant behavior? Some would say, media and access to media plays a large role in why teenagers today act this way. Do you: AGREE OR DISAGREE?

If you agree, What effects do rap music, tv shows, movies, pornography and access to the internet have on deviant behavior? How do these forms of media affect behavior in younger generations? Why do you think these outlets encourage deviant behavior?

If you disagree, What is your theory on why teenagers act this way? If you believe this, you have to find your own resources and own information as to what influences teenagers to act in deviant ways...
