Do High School Mean Girls Become Adult Bullies?

Yesterday a story was released on CBS News' The Early Show" about eight Florida teens, including six females and two males, involved in the filming and beating of another teenage girl. According to reports, "the teens' motivation for the attack was to produce a video that would become popular on YouTube."

The victimization of women by other women has sadly always been par for the course when it comes to young social groups, but this truly displays a whole new level of awfulness. While Mean Girls may have made this phenomenon funny, it's incidents like these that remind us that real-life mean girls are nothing to laugh about.

Though I hope that many of these young women will grow up and realize the nature of their shameful deeds, I can't help but wonder what happens if they don't. Do you think this behavior is something girls can grow out of or do you think they just become adult bullies? Since workplace bullying has come under scrutiny, tell me ladies, have you experienced bullying from another woman as an adult?
