Yuuuup. Especially here in NYC. Look at these two videos for proof how we're wild, lmao.
Yes it's just for entertainment, but still we're better than this.

I'm personally more of the 2nd style of wild, if you get me in the mood, lmao.
To answer your question in more detail, yes we need to figure out where the line is. In this age of, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, etc, you see more teens trying to expose themselves to us (males). Now, I don't mind it in some ways (hey at least I'm honest), but still it's calling unwanted attention to themselves, and it will catch up to them when they're like 25, 30, looking for a job.
I believe some are, more like most, I'm 14 and I feel like most of the people I know have no regard for anyone but them selves and just want what they want, and expect to not have to work for anything, someone I know, is the perfect example, on a crowed train, in New York, he will start doing chin-ups and start screaming, just to draw attention to him self, he purposely doesn't put any effort in at school and he wonders why people, do not respect him or give him any slack, yet the other people I know are the exact opposite, we actually try to achieve something and we're more mature, so I'd say 85% of teens are "out of reach" and its mainly the world we're living in.

Absolutely ... just look what people are saying ...
"When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly disrespectful and impatient of restraint".
"What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?"
"The young people of today think of nothing but themselves. They have no reverence for parents or old age. They are impatient of all restraint... As for the girls, they are forward, immodest and unladylike in speech, behavior and dress."
A British Government committee has been set up to "examine the causes of the present notorious immorality and profaneness."
Hordes of teens and pre-teens run wild in American city streets, dodging authorities, "gnawing away at the foundations of society"
New York City recorded more than 200 gang wars fought largely by adolescent boys.
Oh ... wait. The writers in question ....
Hesiod, 8th century BC; Plato, 4th century BC; Peter The Hermit, 1274; reports from 1738, c. 1800, 1850; respectively.
So, no. Nothing new, nothing worse. No need to panic!
(I am indebted to http://www.anxietyculture.com/antisocial.htm for collecting all these quotes in one place. There are hundreds more of this ilk spanning every era of human history.)

I think some are wild but not all. Young people get a bad reputation often in the media and it is not always true. Some are, some aren't.

To put this out there, it's been about 2 hours and there's this new picture out there of a young girl from NYC doing some sexual relations in a park, and everyone's blowing it up.
To reitrate, this generation is F'd up. I mean, I don't advocate sexual relations in a park, but come on, posting the pictures on Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, etc, to ruin her life is extreme. This has happened to another young girl named Amber Cole in September of last year, and she did suicide after the video of her doing sexual relations in public was released on Facebook and WorldStarHipHop. This generation, I swear. Why couldn't I be born in the 80's? This is just too much.
^Are some comments about how this is "breaking news" and how we (NYC teens) react to this.
A lot of teenagers are mentally insecure therefore they tend to not think everything out and it causes them to appear "wild"

We are the product of what carved us. We are a stone, and life, family, and the environment are our masons.
By the way, I am 19 myself so teenager to some! ;)

If watching the Octomom porn video is considered "wild," then I'm a wild 17-year-old.
