It used to be guys who were known for drinking till they dropped, but Antoniareports that girls are taking on alcohol like never before. A eighteen year old girl named Arrie has been out every night except Mondays since she first arrived at the University of Texas. Her typical evening always involves hanging out with about 200 people drinking liquor-laced punch at a potential sorority sister''s apartment and then when about 1:00 a.m., she would head over to a frat house to drink more. One night she had sixteen of the jell-o shots." Adolescent girls who binge-drink- about four or more drinks in a row.on one occasion over 30-day period- are easy to find.binge drinking remained steady among males but increased among female students by almost ten percent between 1999 and 2003-with the percent of women drinking versus 48 percent of men. Last year the blood alcohol level of intoxicated women who received treatment at a hospital or detox center was 20-ten percent higher than that of intoxicated men. An annual powder-puff football game at the Glen Brook north high schoolin a Chicago suburb made national news when alcohol- fueled seniorgirls savagely tortured a group of juniors, kicking them and splatteringthem with paint a human feces.The Westchester County, a swanky Manhattan suburb, has been the home of so many high-profile underage drinking scandals that some schools in thearea make kids ride school buses to and from prom and hang out at the teacher-hosted after-parties.
