I was actually very surprised to see the statistics this survey brought up. I also thought of our generation as being more defiant than those before us; more underage drinking, premarital sex, and drug use, when in fact, these things have declined over the last 30 years.
The article points out that the media is responsible for a lot of the misconception with TV shows such as "Teen Mom" and "Gossip Girl". Why do you think the media portrays our generation in such a negative light? Were you also surprised to see these statistics? Why do you think our generation is becoming more conservative?
