8. warpy is correct
I witnessed and was involved in plenty of fights with other girls as a child. The difference was, back then nobody was going to compile a report and document girls beating up each other. It simply wasn't taken seriously. Now every time some girl smacks somebody, it is written up. Back then, smacking somebody was part of how girls communicated. Watch movies from the 50s, 60s, 70s -- hitting was just part of how girls/women were expected to express themselves. It wasn't considered a crime. When I did get in trouble for assault, I was actually surprised.

The conservation movement is a breeding ground of communists
and other subversives. We intend to clean them out,
even if it means rounding up every birdwatcher in the country.
--John Mitchell, US Attorney General 1969-72
