    The persistent notion that bullies are weak-minded and doing it to cover up their problems is outdated and proven to be inaccurate. . . continuing to pass that around will only confuse kids and fail to resolve the actual issues.

    Bullies are cruel.
    Both smart people and stupid people can be cruel; one can be cruel whether one has high self-esteem or nonexistent self esteem.
    Anyone can be cruel; we all have it in us.

    Would you say that in the face of the parents of the children that kill themselves due to being bullied?

    It is really and it is getting worse. We must put a stop to it.

    It really isnt getting worse. We're just hearing and caring more about it.

    Yeah; it's always been pretty bad, actually.
    The news media plays up (or sometimes creates) various socio-cultural trends, in the interest of selling papers or getting ratings; in this case, they've chosen to highlight a ubiquitous and ever-present social phenomenon- bullying- and act as if they'd just discovered it, or as if it's suddenly escalated beyond all reason.
    I think the highly-publicized Phoebe Prince case was the catalyst this time.

    I agree that bullying has not suddenly gotten a lot worse; I do not think, however, that it hurts to focus the nation's attention on such a serious problem once every few years.
    If the media has to imply it's gotten worse in order to capture the public's attention and interest, so be it.
    People need to consider the problem.
    They can't go around fretting about it 24/7, but it doesn't hurt, every once in awhile, to remind them that it's still there, and it's neither going away nor getting any better.

    Best come back ever for an animated series.....

    Family Guy:

    "Family Guy: Barely Legal (#5.8)" (2006)
    Connie D'Amico: You know, Meg, there's no dogs allowed here so you're gonna have to leave, but Brian can stay.

    Brian Griffin: You know, Connie, I think I have a theory about why you're such a bitch.

    Connie D'Amico: Excuse me?

    Meg Griffin: Brian let's just go.

    Brian Griffin: No, no, no hang on, hang on. You see Connie, you're popular because you developed early and started giving handjobs when you were twelve and now you can't stand to look at yourself in the mirror because all you see is a whore. So you pick on Meg to avoid the inevitable realization that once your body is used up by age 19 you're going to be a worn out, chalky skinned burlap sack that even your step dad won't want. How's that? Am I in the ballpark?

    If its relevancy came up, sure.

    Show me with statistical links, not media hysteria.
