Its all bullying no matter how you look at it.
This will most likley come off sounding condeming or rude and finger pointing but its really bugging me.
In light of suicide caused by bullying, Amanda Todd has made the country talk. People are standing up and police are cracking down on people who like to pray on people verbally and physically.
However, it doesn't stop here. Way too often I have noticed how careless we can be not even 24 hours after we hashtag #stopbullying or share a young girls last words on YouTube, sharing our discust with the people who tore her down. Then we turn around post passive aggressive or just plain aggressive posts about our political leaders, wifes, ex-wives, husbands, ex-husbands, friends, family, neighbors. Now I know families, friends, teachers, kids, neighborhoods and politics (politicians get a lot of negativity these days) can be difficult and full of all sorts of not so nice things... But do you honestly think it helps to bash them constantly? Is this not bullying too? Do I need to go on? Is this not all bullying? Yes everyone is entitled to their opinions and yes people can make us angry or frustrated. But to belittle and bash is seriously not going to make it better. Society rips people who displease them a new one and then cry out because a girl killed herself because of bullying...come on now tell me how this makes sense? Its all the same. I do not care if these people being bashed ever see what is being said or not, others do and it sets forth more negativity into this world and haven't we had enough?
