A verbal STD, commonly distributed in high schools, but also found in colleges, workplaces, residential neighborhoods, and nursing homes.
1. Dude, don't think about it. That bitch has major drama.
2. Oh fuck, I've got drama.
3. Drama is hilarious when it happens to other people.

Unescessary emotional turmoil that women love to cause and partake in. The most common causes of drama with women are love, sex, and relationships. omen cause drama because they know it drives men nuts, and use it to play hard to get.
That new girl I like is causing me so much drama that it's hardly even worth the effort.

"Middle school called, they want their drama back."

A style of life found primarily among middle school and high school females, AKA shorties. (Unfortunately, recent occurrences would suggest that there is a troubling trend of drama being reported among high school males, reference Dyl, Cackins, Camara). Said style of life manifests itself in exaggeration, recurring anxiety, and an uncanny knack of keeping the issue at hand alive for days, weeks, months, and even years.

The careful observer will note that there are different genres (if you will) of drama focusing on the following issues (note that this list is not conclusive):
- Boyfriends who can not make up their mind and date girls, AKA Shorties, repeatedly, therefore causing unnecessary stress not for the girl in question, but rather for their best friends who just may possibly “like” said boyfriend
- CBA members, players, games, comments
- Freudian Slips of the term “bitch”
- Girlfriends who talk trash
- Dance
- Sleepovers (this would be more geared towards the male population who still holds true the idea that males should have sleepovers at the mature age of 17)
- Guys who try to “mack it” with girls, AKA Shorties, who are already taken by other guys (again, this would be geared towards the male population who feel that the appropriate call to action would be a fight at Foster Field after the Homecoming Dance. This undoubtedly would not settle the matter, and actually only leads to law enforcement intervention and an unfortunate series of arrests).
- Homecoming Dance
- Graduation
- The “she said that…”
- Occurrences at football games
- Deciding who should be chosen to be a passenger in your car while traveling to any and all activities to be held at said CHS

An unfortunate breeding ground for drama would be the AOL Instant Messenger. Said venue is a commonly used forum to deal with drama because copying and pasting brewing conversations over drama can be sent to others for advice and consent; caps, italics, bolding and smiley faces can be used to portray feelings of emotion; and conversations can be saved, printed and/or posted in emails for future reference.

A way to combat drama is not allow it to reproduce. Any and all means must be used to achieve this result.
An example of an AIM conversation:

Female X: Greg is back with Chelsea
Female Y: I can't believe that. They should just get over each other

Male X: You are screwing with Matt's girl. Foster Field, 10:00 p.m.

Female X: I don't care if you are sorry cuz you hurt my feelings. You obviously aren't the friend I thought you were.
Female Y: But you've been acting like a bitch lately. You've been talking behind my back
Female Y: (in another AIM conversation who has copied and pasted said prior conversation to their "advisor") I'm really sad. What should I do

Usually labeled as a 'girl' thing, but is more than half of the time caused by men.

Girl drama examples and scenarios that are caused by men-
2) Girl 1- "Michael told me he liked me last night at the football game!"
Girl 2- "Really? 'Cause Michael told ME he liked ME last night at the football game."
3) "He says if I love him.. I'll have sex with him."
4) He had sex with me and then completely stopped talking to me :( @#$@#*$
5) He told his girlfriend that I was all over him and now she is comin' at my trying to fight!!@#$@#$

As you can see, women are usually the pons of drama and boys are the ones controlling the chess pieces. They love to feel like they are the reason a girl is getting so worked up or they are in between two girls fighting over them.

Drama goes both ways.
But no matter what gender,
it's still pointless.
"Drama is just something girls say they hate but in the end are always in the middle of."
"And boys are different because...?"
"Well men fight when they have problems with one another."
"Fighting is drama."
"... Well.. uhh."
