For instance, when Hamlet states, “Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder / of sinners? I am myself indifferent honest, but yet I / could accuse me of such things that it were better my/ mother had not borne me” (3.1.121-23). He tells Ophelia that he doesn’t love her, which was cruel and uncalled for, even if Ophelia is not completely innocent in this situation as she is spying on him by her father’s orders.

Goneril is the first to notice and reacts to it by telling Oswald before her father shows up to “treat Lear and his men poorly” just as you would think it wouldn’t make the king get a better attitude toward life.

You will become depressed. Your family and friends will be ashamed of you, and you will commit suicide.” This further develops the moral panic in parents by agreeing that this is something that will kill their child.

Teens then see the sexting ‘problem’ as an actual concern and not just that their parents are being overprotective.
In high school, a boy made up a rumor that we had sex at a party. The rumor spread around, and no seemed to take my word over his; they said I was only denying it because of regret. The most frustrating part of it was that people were calling me a slut, and at the same time were congratulating him.
