Okay I'm just posting this as a question, not a debate, I'm just wanting to hear peoples opinions on this. What's with gossip? What's with whispering? What's the point in it? There's three people in my school that when I walk by them they whisper witch, like it's supposed to hurt me or insult my religion. Why do people insist on spreading rumors? Is it a natural human reflex that when you hear something "juicy" that you have to spread it?

I've never quite understood it... In the words of my father (and many other guys I suppose) Teenage girls are the most brutal breed of human.
