    Attention teen protestors: YOUR texting and driving kills 269 times as many people as school shootings! Wikipedia has this comprehensive, well documented article called “List of school shootings in the United States.”School shootings are so rare and infrequent that it wouldn’t be good to just look at any one year, so I’m going to look at all the school shootings from January 1, 1999 (the year of the Columbine massacre, which is often cited as the beginning of the “modern” era of school shootings) and go up until March 20, 2018, which is the most recent school shooting (Great Mills, Maryland)...

    Parents used to worry about peer pressure encouraging their kids to experiment with alcohol or drugs, or to have sex. Now, they have to worry that it may encourage their kids (especially daughters) to change sex altogether. If you are a parent of a child or teenager, you owe it to yourself to read World magazines latest cover story, which addresses the relatively new but expanding phenomenon of rapid-onset gender dysphoria, abbreviated ROGD. Advocates for the LGBT movement have long argued that you can diagnose gender dysphoria in children who are consistent, insistent, and persistent in expressing a discomfort with...

    A woman was hit and killed by a car packed with egg-chucking teens who ran a red light Tuesday afternoon, marking unincorporated Harris County's first traffic fatality of 2019. The three teens, including a 14-year-old boy behind the wheel of a GMC Acadia, were fleeing an enraged motorist who gave chase during their alleged egging spree, Harris County Sheriff's Lt. Susan Cotter said. The young driver ignored a red light along Aldine Mail Route Road in north Houston and t-boned a Ford F-150 heading south on Aldine Westfield Road, she said. Both vehicles tumbled into a nearby ditch. The woman...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) Could the secret to eternal youth be found in blood transfusions from young people? Some claim that transfusions with young blood from teenagers can reverse the aging process. Its being tested in patients over the age of 35 as part of a clinical trial called ambrosia, where people paid $8,000 to get the rich growth factors found in bloods plasma platelets. There are pretty much people from most states, people from overseas, people from Europe and Australia, Dr. Jesse Karmazin said. Results of the trial have not been published.

    A bill to lower the voting age to 16 for all elections, both local and federal, was approved by the Judiciary and Public Safety committee of the DC City Council by a 3-0 vote. It is now slated for a full Council vote in the very near future. Council member Charles Allen sought to rebuff critics who contend that people this young don't have enough real life experience to be informed voters. "They may still live with their parents and haven't had the burden of supporting themselves, but neither have the legions of welfare recipients who currently vote," Allen pointed...

    Teen Vogue showed the ignorance of a poorly educated and lazy generation by trashing capitalism in favor of socialism. The magazine told kids who act like they read Teen Vogue that capitalism has left the world in a dystopian Mad Max nightmare in which resources have dwindled and rich plutocrats own everything. In this view, we should strive for the much more desirable system of socialism. It went on to espouse the virtues of socialism over capitalism. That tone of lazy economic ignorance could foretell problems for our country. Years of the influence of Obama, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren...

    CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on Tuesday tore into Donald Trump Jr. for his recent remarks about how men are affected when they are accused of sexual assault, with Toobin saying that someone who commits assault in high school should have their life ruined. If you sexually assault someone in high school, your life should be ruined," Toobin said on CNN's New Day while discussing the allegations against Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh. Toobin also mocked Trump Jr., jokingly saying that the president's eldest son cries himself to sleep every night over the fate of white men in America. Trump Jr....

    VANCOUVER Who is more likely to be victimized by teen dating violence? If youre quick to think its girls, new data shows youre wrong. In a surprising twist, recently published research indicates boys are more likely to report being victims of dating violence committed by partners who hit, slap or push them. Researchers with the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) conducted a longitudinal study of dating violence. While reports of physical abuse went down over time, they say there is a troubling gender-related trend. Five percent of teens reported physical abuse from their dating...

    Five dozen women who went to high school with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have written a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein backing his character.

    A woman from Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh's teenage past claims he and a high school classmate once held her down in a locked room while he covered her mouth and tried to force himself on her sexually. The bombshell charge, which Kavanaugh flatly denied on Friday, followed 24 hours of speculation about what Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein vaguely called 'information' that she had handed to the FBI. The alleged teenage party incident was described in a letter from the unnamed woman to Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, her California congresswoman. Eshoo passed it to Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the...

    Transgender adolescents are far more likely to attempt suicide than teens whose identity matches their sex assigned at birth, and trans male youth are especially at risk, a U.S. study suggests. Roughly half of transgender teens who identify as male but were assigned a female gender at birth have attempted suicide at least once, the study found. And 42 percent of adolescents who dont identify exclusively as male or female have at least one prior suicide attempt. About 30 percent of trans female teens - who identify as female but have birth certificates that label them as male - have...

    A new pro-abortion campaign aims to convince teens that aborting an unborn baby is no big deal. Organized by Advocates for Youth and the National Network of Abortion Funds, Youth Testify is a national campaign that encourages young people who have had abortions to share their stories, according to Teen Vogue. The campaign claims it wants to change the narrative and combat misinformation about abortions among teens and young adults, but it really only wants abortion-positive stories from teens. Young adults who regret aborting their unborn babies or had terrible experiences are not welcome to participate. The campaign currently has...

"We can't believe that this happened," Sharapova told KOMO.

    The summer's explosive dance challenge has recently taken a dangerous turn. It's the "In My Feelings" challenge also known as the "Kiki" challenge and one Iowa teen found herself in the hospital after attempting it. The original "In My Feelings" challenge started innocently enough, with people filming themselves dancing to Drake's new song, "In My Feelings." But since the trend took off about a month ago, it's escalated to a new, dangerous level, with some people recording themselves jumping out of moving cars to dance. Police and safety officials in communities around the world have issued warnings urging...
