Young women today have a bad reputation, and for good reason: They’re sexting their classmates, they spend more time on FaceBook than they do in class, and their appetite for material possessions and reality TV is matched only by their overwhelming apathy about important social and political issues. Right?
FBomb blog creator Julie Zeilinger debunks these (and other) myths about modern youth in A Little F’d Up, the first book about feminism for young women in their teens and twenties to actually be written by one of their peers. In this accessible handbook, Zeilinger takes a critical, honest, and humorous look at where young feminists are as a generation, and where they’re going—and she does so from the perspective of someone who’s in the trenches right alongside her readers.
Fun, funny, and engaging, A Little F’d Up is a must-read for the growing number of intelligent, informed young women out there who are ready to start finding their voice—and changing the world.

So... This i a really long story so pull up a seat. Well when i was in the 6th grade i started a Facebook account wihout my parents permission. I was bagging on a couple of meqn girls on the website and they tol the princeple on me. I got in trouble in school and they called my parents. My mom made me deactivate the account. The next day at school i gave my email and password to my friend at school and told her to reactivate it. She did and i went back to using it. In the 8th grade i got in trouble again when i posted (lying) saying that i was smoking weed. When i got caught i told my parents i got hacked. They somewhat believed me and again told me to deactivate the account. In the 9th grade when i reactivated the account on my friends phone i ppsted about my fake pregnacy. I wanted attention at school and said that the guy that i was sorta comlicated with was the father. His mother found out and messaged me on Facebook. I responded telling her how she awas crazy and how her son was the father of my baby. About a week later i messaged my band director asking for help and she called my mom. She told my mom the whole story and the next day she took me to the clinic for a pregnacy test. The test was negative considering the fact that i was a virgin. After that we went to my school and had a meeting with the counsler, my parents and his parents. They yelled at me telling me how if his parents decided to press charhges then i woul go to jail to defacement of charcter. I got off scotch free. The only catch was to never speak to the family again. Things blew over at home but then my sister and i got into a arguments. She went and tild my mom and dad and my dad blamed the whole thing on me. I was in my room ranting to myself (after i told my dad he didnt know what he was talking about which fired up my mom) my mom came in my room and hit me. In the face. So i punched her a good 3 times before he pinned me down on the bed. He spit in my mouth and told my mom to beat me. She took a belt and hit the inside of my thigh about 15 times. Then she took a ruler and hit my elbow until i almost blacked out. After that my dad got off me and they called the police on me. I told tje officer that she hit me first and it didnt look like he belived me. So after he left i calle my brother who called DFAS. They insisted that we have family therapy almost every week. Earlier in the week i had started to use my facebook and skype again. I wasnt doing anything wrong so i hqd a clear mind about things. But when my mom looked at my computer and saw my skype she called my eldest brother. She took away my computer and now im going to live with him for the summer. Shhe just told ke that they are going to take the case to court most likely so I can be removed from my home. Sgould i stay here or go live with my bedt friend. And hat should i say to my parents? I need help bad. AsapWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

To below~Thank you for helping me but please let me answer problems
To "Injured with Pride"~Right now I'm friends with a guy and he's really nice. He's a lot like your friend (only he broke a finger). I think he is trying to be friendly and you should stop worrying and just be yourself. I'm not the prettiest girl either but what matters is what's on the inside, not the outside. Hope you find this useful! ~*Liv*

This young women really tells it like it is. It should be required reading for anyone in politics who is trying to figure out why so many young people don't vote.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
