Generally a girl neither a child nor a teenager but is slammed by both because of their insecurities. Then, under constant attack are easily manipulated into the sole means of defense at her disposal, attacking her own kind. She is protected and supported by none thereby making her feel her own fears and wishes all the more acutely. Due to such thoughtless ridicule by those ready to mock, deride, taunt, and humiliate for their own benefit and solely to her expense, one of the most precious times in her life, a time to begin to know herself as a person, is squandered, not just to the girl herself but to the society and culture to which she counts herself and contributes. One of the most lethal aspects of her dilemma is the cynical, nihilistic, soul killing twaddle found to be associated with common connotations of the word tween including being regarded as nothing more than the bit of flesh between shit and fuck.
That tweener is going to get what she's asking for whether she likes it or not, heh, heh.

Girls between the ages of nine and thirteen. Generally underestimated. People think they're idiots who are just trying to be mature but really, they've been through a lot so don't bug them.
Teen: Look at those tweens over there, pretending to be cool...

Tween: ...I'm really not...
