Study: Popular Children Meaner

A paper published in the American Sociological Review found that the more teens struggled to be popular in their schools, the more aggressive they were. What do you think?

"Kids need to know that you can get just as popular by kissing ass."

Max Fortis • Felt Cutter


"I don't know about this. My kid's a huge asshole, but he's not popular at all."

Tim Spiegel • Warp Coiler

"My own work hasn't shown that popular children are mean, but rather that dorkwads and rejects tend to be thin-skinned crybabies."

Sandra Birnbach • Social Psychologist
