內容簡介

《浮華世界》專欄作家Nancy Jo Slaes探討社群網站如何形塑現今美國青少女,造成嚴重的性別意識、自我認同、價值觀的扭曲。

Instagram. Whisper. Yik Yak. Vine. YouTube. Kik. Ask.fm. Tinder.你認得幾種?都是現在青少年最流行也最主要的社交平台。社交媒體統治著全球少女,長大後她們將會是甚麼樣子?令人警醒。

完全走進青少年的雲端生活,有女初長成的家長,必看。—Newsday。

成人讀者會感到震驚......沒想到Facebook和Twitter之外,還有那麼多聽都沒聽說過卻是大多數青少年使用的應用程式。讀了才更明瞭這些次媒體如何席捲美國少年的生命。──—The New York Post。

作者從蒙特克萊爾、曼哈頓、洛杉磯、佛羅里達、亞利桑那到德克薩斯州、肯塔基,縱橫交錯,兩百多個十三至十十九歲女生,跨越種族和家庭收入,了解她們結束童年,邁入青春期,開始迷戀浪漫的體驗,全然透過不同與多種的社交平台,進入一個個龐大,看似無跡可循的世界,追尋她們的刺激,在這些調查的勾勒下,她們的雲端世界,是一個個令人不安的畫面。

不要批評,不要否決,要了解與進入青少年的世界,一本讓成人放下戒心,與子女站在相同立場,才能產生交集,理解與保護她們。

作者Nancy Jo Sales屢獲殊榮,研究青年流行文化領域多年,此次,深入調查美國少女如何運用社交媒體改變生活,與她們的父母輩的成長經驗,大不相同,書中提出的前所未有的論點,值得為人父母與師長者閱讀與了解。

Instagram. Whisper. Yik Yak. Vine. YouTube. Kik. Ask.fm. Tinder. The dominant force in the lives of girls coming of age in America today is social media. What it is doing to an entire generation of young women is the subject of award-winning Vanity Fair writer Nancy Jo Sales’s riveting and explosive American Girls.

With extraordinary intimacy and precision, Sales captures what it feels like to be a girl in America today. From Montclair to Manhattan and Los Angeles, from Florida and Arizona to Texas and Kentucky, Sales crisscrossed the country, speaking to more than two hundred girls, ages thirteen to nineteen, and documenting a massive change in the way girls are growing up, a phenomenon that transcends race, geography, and household income. American Girls provides a disturbing portrait of the end of childhood as we know it and of the inexorable and ubiquitous experience of a new kind of adolescence—one dominated by new social and sexual norms, where a girl’s first crushes and experiences of longing and romance occur in an accelerated electronic environment; where issues of identity and self-esteem are magnified and transformed by social platforms that provide instantaneous judgment. What does it mean to be a girl in America in 2016? It means coming of age online in a hypersexualized culture that has normalized extreme behavior, from pornography to the casual exchange of nude photographs; a culture rife with a virulent new strain of sexism and a sometimes self-undermining notion of feminist empowerment; a culture in which teenagers are spending so much time on technology and social media that they are not developing basic communication skills. From beauty gurus to slut-shaming to a disconcerting trend of exhibitionism, Nancy Jo Sales provides a shocking window into the troubling world of today’s teenage girls. 

Provocative and urgent, American Girls is destined to ignite a much-needed conversation about how we can help our daughters and sons negotiate unprecedented new challenges.
