    Yeah, I was sort of going along with the traditional boys pick on others physically, girls mentally, but that's changed so much in the past ten years or so. There was a local story here a couple of years ago about a girl...I think this was the story:

    I had a brief moment of being popular in elementary school -gags- before my parents moved and I went to another public school for junior high. In elementary school, as introverted as I was, I was still a leader and somehow managed to form a clique which then proceeded to bully this one girl mercilessly. Why? because she was 'different'. My parents never knew about that. They might know now, if they're reading this. Mom, Dad, I'm sorry, I wasn't perfect. I wasn't raised like that. I surely would have stopped, if someone of authority would have noticed and told me to stop. To this day, the way that I treated that girl has haunted me. It just isn't me. I'm not that person. I tried to look her up on Facebook to apologize and found out she commited suicide a couple of years ago. That's painful to hear. I realize after all these years, that her decision to take her own life had nothing to do with her childhood (or so I hope). I've since payed for that I think. I have my own story of being bullied in junior high after I joined a youth group, but I won't go into it here. Let's just say I payed my dues and got what I deserved.

    Kids always bullied each other, since forever, im of the opinion that either more are committing suicide now because of it for some reason or there is just more media exposure of it. Did anyone ever read Carrie?

    I'm thinking kids now are just more knowledgeable on how to kill themselves.

    It could also be that things can get more pervasive in life now, what with things like texting, facebook, bbm, aim, internet, etc etc. Even at home, there is no escape from the gym locker bullying.

    According to the girl's sister, the girls who bullied her came to her funeral, then laughed at her in her coffin because she was to be buried in the dress that she'd planned to wear to the prom. It was all pink and sparkly. They thought that was funny. :steam:

    If I had been a member of that girl's family I would have physically attacked those people. I seriously don't know how anyone could restrain themselves from punching someone who laughed at a dead girl at her funeral.

    I've actually never punched someone in my entire life. But I can't fathom just letting something like that go.

    I think that amongst kids who have committed suicide over the past few decades, bullying has been the major cause why. That and abuse at home, or wherever. It's not a sudden epidemic, it's always been this way. Glad we are finally acknowledging it now though.

    It's messed up for kids to be so tormented by these asshole bullies.

    And these asshole bullies, you have to wonder what the hell their parents did to them to cause them so much anger and rage. Or such low self-esteem that they have to conform to what the more aggressive kids are doing, just to feel better about themselves - even if it means turning on a helpless kid that you may have liked at one point.

    These monsters, these bullies - they are just kids, too.

    Society fail, all around.

    Bullying, mobbing etc. are one of our biggest cancers in society, and it regularly breaks my heart that it starts already at youngest age. I don't even want to say anything more to it.

    This is part of the reason I don't want to teach. I don't want to be anywhere near the little monsters and their enabling parents.
    Teachers have a position of influence and some power. They can impact kids' lives. Why not put yourself in that position to act as divine intervention if this shit (or other shit) occurs? Why not try to fix society?
