Teenage Girls

I'm always going to have a strong interest in middle-class, mean teenage girls for one reason or another. Aside from being nubile, firm, innocent and yet eager to explore etc etc, they are also great because they are so really, truly awful. Men send them up really well because they can remember being terrorized by them -or at least the thought of them- throughout their youth (and sometimes well into their twenties), teenage boys are horrible things too I'm sure, but is there a creature alive more selfish, self-absorbed and arrogant than a middle-class mean teenage girl? Maybe one of the reasons so many men don't trust women is that their first experiences with them are when they are at their absolute worst.

(PS. Is there a good one of these done by an Englishman that isn't Vicki Pollard? I'd really like to see one.)

Does the fact that my sister was a teenage bitch hellbeast and that I was a weepy dingbat mean that we were more middle class when she was a teen than we were when I was?
