|I agree, and I second Bitmap's addition. The teachers at my school did jack shit to stop the bullying, and even less because they were hispanic, the bullies were hispanic, and I was white. I really wished that I had known more about Title VII earlier. My kids will know it backwards and forwards before they enter school.|

I also forgot to mention. The fact that "integrity" is one of the major words that I was raised with. I lied to my mom and it was three times worse when she found out I did lie. =P
Seriously... I'm tired of the "It Gets Better" speeches. I'm telling you. These kids need to start understanding that they need to be tough as nails to make it through this world.
It's not going to get better unless you make it better.

Just wanted to point out, due to federal, and legal issues, if you are a bully who pushes someone to suicide, you WILL get tried for murder.
Just food for thought >.>
|Your mom would ask if it was 'necessary'? Wowza talk about easy peezy. Just lie it up and presto, free to torque everybody.
Also yeah kids are fucked these days what's wrong with stuff man we were so good everything is shit now talataloo. There was a good video of a Texan city committee member talking about his personal experiences and telling gay kids everywhere that "it gets better". It was a pretty good speech. In Texas, too!
|While I agree with your post completely, don't forget to rule out the peers, parents and teachers of the bullies!
Back when I was in middle school, I was bullied constantly for being the fat kid with nothing but orange clothes, like a giant orange blight that others were compelled to stomp on.
Well, the bullies never got anything more than a day of suspension for doing things such as spitting, hitting, bringing knives to school, death threats... You name it. Me on the other hand? I try to shove a bully away from me after he starts swinging (after him slamming my hands in my locker, mind you) and I was tackled by 3 teachers, all of them dragging me away. I defended myself and I got suspended for a week, 3 days of in-school suspension and then the dean drove it into my mind that I needed anger management! Well, if you took the fucking steps to open your eyes and see WHY I was angry, you'd fucking understand!
All the while, the bully was being coddled as though he'd been traumatized, and the adults and his friends stood up for him saying that he just needs to get it out of his system.
That's the kind of thing that turns nice people like me into sociopaths! I'm glad that that particular case was averted with me but I was dangling dangerously close!
|That's right everyone. It seems that religious respect is not even enough here. You know what I'm sick about? I'm sick about all these suicides due to bullying. Why because of their sexual preferences.
I'll tell you who I think is to blame about this subject. Parents. Parents who have not prepared their children knowing that people are going to pick on them because "kids will be kids." I can't believe that mothers and fathers are blaming everyone but themselves! (maybe they do but for crying out loud) When my husband was getting picked on, his parents sent him to tae kwon do classes. When I was getting picked on, my mother made me work out or do something to take my anger and depression out on things. She signed me up for softball so I could be part of a team sport. My mother KNEW my brother was going to be gay, just by looking out how he acted. Well she knew that he was going to get a lot of unwanted attention. So she signed him up for fighting classes.
I've always viewed suicide as an easy way out. Why? Because it's just a way to say fuck you to everything that you can accomplish.
Seriously there are ways to prevent kids from killing themselves because of being bullied. Parents have GOT to prepare their children for the worst.
LEST WE FORGET about the children causing the issue. I tell you, it's insane how children are being raised these days. If I did so much as hurt another person, my mother would ask if it was necessary first. If it wasn't I would then be punished. Being bullies is just wrong, and this is coming from the person that was bullied a lot through out elementary. Parents just let these kids get away anything even murder (well not really murder but you get what I'm saying).
SERIOUSLY JUST UGH!!!
