What Things From Classic Teen Movies Would Be Absolutely Unacceptable In 2019?

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss your fave movies becoming problematic."

Look, I just want to start by saying that I love teen movies as much as the next person. Truly, they are my JAM. But with that being said, I re-watched a few recently and some things just didn't sit right with me.

Like, how in John Tucker Must Die, John dismisses his bad behavior, aka lying about sexploits that never happened, by claiming it's "just locker room talk."

Or how in She's All That, a girl makes a sexist comment, telling Lainey she "runs like a girl."

So, we want to know, have you noticed something in a classic teen movie that struck you as problematic? Maybe it's the unacceptable and offensive language, like in Mean Girls...

...or, maybe it's how the RARE times there are diverse characters, they're portrayed as a stereotype, like Long Duk Dong in Sixteen Candles.

It could even be an overall theme, like the slut-shaming in Easy A or the bullying in The Princess Diaries.

Whatever it is, we want to know! What problematic things have you noticed in teen movies? Tell us in the DropBox below and you may just be included in a BuzzFeed Community post or video!
