If you have a teenage girl in your life -- or if you have ever been a teenage girl -- drop everything you are doing right now and read this excerpt from an amazing personal essay by writer Meghan Harper. Those girls, man. They take all that energy, all that circulating fire in their veins, and instead of letting it destroy them, they choose to love, ferociously. Be it a band, or a book, or a series of films.

Younger students are no different than their older peers when it comes to sexting, a new study reports. More high school students are sending and receiving sexually explicit text messages or photos, and that makes them more likely to engage in other types of sexual activity as well. Now researchers say the same trends are trickling down to younger students in middle school. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics found that a significant number of adolescents between ages 12 and 14 sext, and that these children are more likely to kiss, have oral sex or sexual intercourse than their counterparts who did not send such explicit messages. The study surveyed seventh grade students from five urban public middle schools in Rhode Island. More concerning, say the scientists, was that sexting was associated with a higher likelihood of sexual behaviors such as touching genitals, oral sex, and vaginal sex.
