    What is this worsening behavior among teenage girls as evidenced by the physical mobbing

    in a Brooklyn McDonalds which a teenage girl was physically mobbed by 4 other teenagers and beaten until she lost consciousness while the crowd watched, doing nothing & a teenager in Florida was attacked w/her younger brother by another teenager after school?  Have our teenage girls become less ladylike and losing all semblance of class, descending into barbaric behavior?

    No I don't think girls have become less "ladylike".
    We just didn't have cell phone video, Twitter, and other forms of social media 40+ years ago. When I was growing up in Gary, Indiana there were a few (girl) street gangs in the 70s.
    It also was not unheard of for girls to get violent with one another. It simply was just not reported in the news.
    Most kids who were beaten up also didn't report it to their parents or authorities if they could avoid it. Teenagers and parents tended to live in (parallel universes) which seldom "intersected".
    Teens believed they should be "handling" their own problems as if they were adults themselves. Bystanders generally minded their own business rather than get involved. Apparently that hasn't changed.

    I agree with dashingscorpio.  It's always happened, it was just ignored.  I was mobbed when I was in junior high, and nobody cared.  The term "ladylike" was laughed at; girls were just as bad as boys.
