That's the teenage spirit!

A 16-year-old named Jenni Herd from Scotland wrote an angry and brilliant letter to the British national daily, The Times, and her words are being heard around the world!

The teenager wrote in a fury about all of the articles that try and "understand" how teenagers work — when really their behavior makes a lot of sense!

Here's some of what she wrote:

"Has no one ever seen that we are angry at the world we live in? Angry that we will have to clean up your mess, while you hold us in contempt, analyzing our responses as though we were another species?

I would like adults to treat us not as strange creatures from another world but as human beings with intelligent though—a little different from yours, perhaps, but intelligent thought nonetheless."

Although that right there was inspiring - you really have to read the whole thing to understand the passion of this young lady!

We can't speak for them all, but it seems that this teen is definitely alright!

Check out an image of the letter (below) and the letter in its entirety… (below)!

"Annoyed

Sir, I am getting increasingly annoyed at the barrage of articles about teenagers, and the adults who keep trying to explain our behaviour (“Moods and meltdowns: what’s inside the teenage brain?”, Mar 1)

I am 16 and a straight-A student, like most of my friends. We are not as irrational and immature as adults seem to think. We’ve grown up with financial crises and accept that most of use will be unemployed. We no longer flinch at bloody images of war because we’ve grown up seeing the chaos in the Middle East and elsewhere. Most of us are cynical and pessimistic because of the environment we’ve grown up in — which should be explanation enough for our apparent insolence and disrespect, without “experts” having to write articles about it.

Has no one ever seen that we are angry at the world we live in? Angry that we will have to clean up your mess, while you hold us in contempt, analyzing our responses as though we were another species?

I would like adults to treat us not as strange creatures from another world but as human beings with intelligent though—a little different from yours, perhaps, but intelligent thought nonetheless.

Stop teaching adults how to behave around us, and instead teach them to respect us.
