Why is it just teen girls? Guys cut themselves all the time too. I'm a 14 year old guy who used to cut himself, so you guys are going to have to trust what I say here.
The whole depression/self harm thing is just a fad for most teens.
Don't get me wrong, some kids have it bad. But, most just think it's cool to be sad. I've seen people pretend to hide cuts. No, that wasn't a typo. They pretend to be ashamed of their self-injuries while putting them out there for everyone to see. Everyone around them just goes "OMG look how sad he is, he's so cool". Everyone just eats it up.
I've tried to talk them about it, but their reasons are just so incredibly shallow.
I just roll my eyes and groan.
All that is trendy is tomorrow's Goodwill donations.

Can't blame the children, they are only do what they are told, to the letter.
Can't blame the parents, they will force their child to be unpopular.
Can't blame the teachers, it's not their place to influence independence.
Can't blame the school system, the ones with money make the rules.
Can't blame the radio stations, they don't write the popular music.
Can't blame television stations, they have to compete for ratings.
Can't blame society, we are all in this together.
Can't blame the government, even though it might make you feel a little better
I am becoming very pessimistic and I don't like it.

I'm a teenage girl and to be honest, none of that applies to me except for the worrying about university but lets face it, we all do at this point. I'm happy to say, i don't care how much i eat (which does become very embarrassing), i've never drunk any alcohol, never taken drugs, never gone clubbing and most utterly have not had sex. And for that I have to thank my parents. Thank god for them.

I dont think its correct...a guy/girl cannot be judged like that nor can their parents, if they stay at home and stay virgin, dont booze etc etc can still turn out to be bad person and vice versa. There is no measure to judge someone except the acts they do which help someone.
All this ethics and moral are crap and only looks good in storybooks.
People should do what they enjoy doing but taking care they dont hurt others or cause harm to anyone else.
