Cyberbullying Growing Among Women

Experts say anytime you are harassed, humiliated or threatened online it's cyberbullying, and teens aren't the only victims. "I hear about adult women retaliating a lot more and retaliating in really vicious ways, to the point where sites get shut down, people drop off of sites," said Dr. Cheryl Dellasega, author of Mean Girls Grown Up. She says bullying can be one rude comment, or a string of them. "The topics that women are cyberbullied about are really endless. It could be a romance. It could be your parenting practices," said Dellasega/Mimi Jung, King5.com. More here. AP illustration. (H/T: Liz)

Question: Have you ever been cyberbullied? And/Or: Do you think females of all ages are meaner and more likely to fight one another today than they were years ago?
