Good fucking lord.
I am reminded today why I try to limit my participation on Facebook. I hate Facebook. Not only is it a bragging contest, an endless list of total garbage and nonsense, a window into the intimate details of people’s lives that no one really needs to know about…. And, it continues to perpetuates bullying. Not only between adolescents but also adults.
Today has truly illustrated the stupidity of people online. To think that “making fun of someone” deliberately is completely okay. There has been endless amounts of time and money in Canada dedicated to help kids deal with and address cyber bullying, yet I see adults doing it. REGARDLESS of whether or not a child WILL or MIGHT see the comments made online, that person is demonstrating the type of person they are. THEY might think its alright to make fun of someone, but will they believe that when its THEIR CHILD being made fun of? Or when their child gets bullied? Set an example. Fuck. So much stupidity. You want to make fun of someone? Great, be an asshole in private. Don’t publicly display it on the internet for kicks, because really that just shows the type of person you are. And the type of person your child will grow up to be. An asshole.
No matter what way you look at the situation - it is what it is. People making fun of others for a laugh online.
Maybe you’ve heard it called drama, gossip, trolling or just plain hate.
Whatever name it goes by, cyberbullying is serious. It really hurts the people who it targets, and affects every aspect of their lives. In some cases, it has even led to tragedy. Cyberbullying is happening to more and more teens every day. No one deserves it, and we can all do more to stop it.
Simply put, cyberbullying happens when people use computers, cellphones or other devices to embarrass, humiliate, torment, threaten or harass someone else. Children as young as age eight have done it, but it most commonly occurs among teenagers.
Cyberbullying usually takes the form of continuous abuse over a period of time. But whether it’s the sharing of one humiliating photo or 1,000 hateful text messages, cyberbullying is toxic. It destroys the reputations, happiness, and feelings of self-worth of too many teens. It’s so stressful, it can even affect the mental health of the person it’s targeting.
A big problem with cyberbullying is that because it’s delivered through electronic devices, it can get to people anywhere and at anytime. Unlike face-to-face bullying, where the victim may at least be able to escape the physical situation, cyberbullying can reach them walking home from school, alone in their bedroom, or even on a family vacation. It can be hard to get away from it or ignore it.
And because it can spread so quickly, to such a huge audience, cyberbullying has already involved a great number of teens, whether as the victim, the person who is bullying, the silent observer, or as someone who participates from the sidelines and becomes part of the problem.
