Thanks for those links. The "caught on tape" episode was very compelling. It was interesting to read the comments - a lot of people stood up for the teacher and blamed the boy.
Lest people think bullying is a "gay thing" (and it is an LGBT issue) - teachers caught on tape bullying special needs child NBC and bullying leads to 10 year old girl's suicide news-gazette Kids would call her fat, ugly, a slut.
No place to hide...fortunately no need to. :-)
Okay, Gaytheist, now you've done it! I read that "did I read that right" business and my jaw just HIT THE FLOOR! I'll be the rest of the day getting it back in my mouth!
I bet you are still sweet. Probably sensitive too. :-)
Dallas thanks for posting that. I watched the video, it was worthwhile. I feel so bad for the kids who are bullied. I wish there was a positive term for them - "victim" seems like an additional form of victimization. There was a recent salon.com article about a woman who came to terms with her schoolyard bully. Fortunately that woman matured out of her behavior. I've known others who, as middle aged adults, continue that behavior. It's also hard for the bullied, who decades later are still affected... "My mother spoke to countless parents about their children bullying me. She worked three jobs to keep us in the suburb where other children tormented me and teachers did virtually nothing to stop it." Over the past few years. I had to tolerate workplace bullies who reminded me of that schoolyard decades later - middle aged women who had a "mean girls clique", finding sneaky ways to harass, malicious gossip, sabotage, diversion or resources, character assassination, and other emotional bullying. I ultimately registered complaints and demanded transfer from the toxic work environment. Those bullies never grew up. Fortunately, one was demoted. I don't know about the others. Moving on, living well is the best revenge.
Washington State next for same sex marriage?
maybe. seattle times
This week, they'll roll out a campaign to make Washington the seventh state to legalize marriage for lesbian and gay couples.
I started thinking about this, and whether I would personally change my patner status from domestic partner (which is same rights and responsibilities as mariage) to married. I honestly don't know. I don't know why I feel that way, either.
