(HARRIS, A.2004)
A NEW TYPE OF BAD GIRL APPEARED IN THE EARLY 2000s. QUEEN BEE IS A WHITE, MIDDLE-CLASS AND SUBURBAN, AND HAD A PROMISING FUTURE.

THESE GIRLS WIELD RELATIONSHIP AGGRESSION AGAINST OTHER AS THE CULPRITS OF SCHOOL BASED MARGINALIZATION. ALTERNATIVE AGGRESSION IS THE WEAPON OF WEAK. AS SUCH THEY ARE REFLECTIVE OF GIRLS' POWERLESSNESS AS THEY ARE OF GIRLS' MEANNESS. (HARRIS, A.2004)
