You might not have heard of it, but I assure you – just about every teenager in America has.
The original Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why
, is the most talked about TV show in America, particularly among high schoolers and middle school-aged children. This teen TV drama is based on a book about a teenage girl who commits suicide and leaves behind a box of cassette tapes which explain the 13 reasons why she killed herself.
13 Reasons Why
is rated TV-MA for two extremely graphic rape scenes, and a graphic, bloody depiction of the main character committing suicide using razor blades. There are also numerous scenes with unbleeped F-bombs and other profanity, sexual content, violence and bullying in high school, drug use and underage drinking.
But if you ask most middle schoolers, they have either talked with their friends about the graphic details of 13 Reasons Why
, or have actually seen episodes, despite being rated TV-MA
Because the topics of suicide and bullying are extremely important, and the content of the series is so controversial, we want to hear from you!
