    Sure that is really crude but the guy is straight to the point. It's ridiculous. Your weapon against it is the on/off switch on the back of the computer. The sleep/wake button on top of the iPhone. So not really a political thing, just think it's one of those made up white people problems we have nowadays that end up becoming a thing bigger than it really needs to be. So thoughts?
    Bullying in my day is nothing compared to what kids now run into on a daily basis.
    What you and I went thru back then is Stone Age tech compared to the new world we all live in

    Bullying has evolved since your day. The net, social circles, FB and other media sites, amplify bullying to the nth degree.
    It follows you everywhere.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    No I understand it that is why you use previous gained knowledge to help people out in meaningful ways. Not tell them "Hey YOU'RE A VICTIM and you are powerless to stop this there is nothing you can do about that guy on Facebook calling you a slut or a fag nope, nothing at all. You just go to soak it all in and take it over and over again."

    How old do you think I am dude? I got Facebook when you had to be in college to have "the facebook" I've been on Twitter since it started. What ever happened to sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me?

    Just an edit, I looked at your links. As I said before, I think people are grouping to many things under cyber-bullying. Rape is umm rape? The girl obviously was traumatized afterwards. As a parent I would have gone to great lengths to stop it, and the fact that a parent (or adult as it says) was in the same house that this all happened shouldn't someone else be charged in this? Like I said, weak parents..

    I don't understand how people get bullied in any situation when it's so easy to avoid.

    A couple of days ago, a 16 yr old boy brought a gun to school, ready to kill, and a teacher (coach?) tackled him after he shot it off once. It was because he was being bullied. I dont know if it was cyber-bullying or in person but my guess is both.

    Bullying kills others besides those being bullied. The guy with Aspergers that killed all those kids in Newtown was bullied. I think the Littleton teens were too and so have many of those school shooters.

    You point out and stop the bullies....they are the ones in the wrong and you should make THEIR parents deal with them and after that point, even hold them accountable. How can responsible parents ignore such behavior in their kids? I would think they'd want to know and to correct their kids, so they'll grow up to be better people.

    As you are of such tender years you have time to learn.

    Beside the unrelenting torment of a choice epithet, no trial could seem so likely to undo me.

    Don't hurt me with your words, brah.

I would have other kids say they didn't really like the art either, and I was just so obsessed with the idea of being an artist that I tried to get comic strips in the school paper only to be told no. All of these instances hurt, but they toughened me up as well. It isn't the same as bullying, but the kind of children that you guys describe I guess would just go jump off a bridge? Kids need toughened up. If we keep raising a society of victims you'll get victims, that blame others for there problems and live with their parents until they are 30 because they can't figure out that life just sometimes sucks.
    John, the simple fact of the matter is, we treat adults with bubblewrap compared to children. Adults have more protections, more enforcement, and so on with anti-bullying in the workplace than children do in the school system. That's absolutely backwards from they way it should be.

    Well if this is the case, then it needs to be rectified. I'm not sure if it is the case or not though.

    Sure it is. While businesses claim to stress having employees address concerns among themselves, it becomes clear to a manager quicker than a school administrator or teacher that bullying is a problem, and then is often a hell of a lot quicker in putting their foot down. Now, public schools over the last ten years have been much quicker than workplaces in putting into place legislation against bullying, but the culture of school bullying is far more tolerated and substantive than the workplace.

    I agree. These kids think that these things/words mean soemthing. We just said sticks and stones or told the other kid to **** off.
