That’s invading her rights as a person to decide whether or not she wants to get it done or not.

Mother wants answers after teenage daughter’s armpits were shaved by teacher

A fourteen year-old girl has her armpits forcibly shaved by a teacher, in front of other students. The teacher and school district defend it because the girl is developmentally disabled and needs to learn “independent living skills” (otherwise known, in this case, as why you must submit to gendered social norms at all times).

And the justification is that the girl would be made fun of if she didn’t do it? Maybe you should change the behavior of the kids that are the bullies, not the kids being bullied. Because even if you forcibly shave her armpits, she’s still noticeably disabled, and that (in her case) can’t be hidden/normalized quite so easily.

The message being sent here - and in so many of these programs - is “You’re being teased because you’re different, so try to be the same!” Rather than seeing the value in human difference and diversity.

I don’t care who you are or what you believe in religion wise. You need to watch this video. It shows from the side of the bully and the person being bullied. I feel as if this should be on everyone’s blog to show you care.

Stop bullying!

This is the most powerful video I have ever seen. It needs to be displayed at every school shown to every student they need to see this!

Reblog,Reblog, Reblog!

going to try and get this to be shown at my school

I love that in this video, there are banners and posters promoting stopping bullying, it shows what it’s actually like. Schools attempting to counter bullying by educating the students, but it doesn’t work, the only way to really stop it is to actually have and show compassion for one another, not just pretend to around your teachers.

Bullying in schools is a big problem — 3.2 million students are bullied each year and this number is likely under-reported. It’s not surprising that famous people were bullied, too. Check out this list and see which celebrities dealt with bullying during their time in school.

And lets not forget Demi Lovato, who took her experiences as a survivor of bullying to inspire other kids who are being bullied in school, today. 

I think the biggest “FUCK YOU” to any bully would to become so fucking famous and then meet them again and remind them of everything they did and tell them that you’re helping kids now to fight against people like them.

Hey Demi can I have your autograph?
Oh no, you bullied me; fuck off

This is one of the reasons I want to become famous.

if you make fun of the kids that sit by themselves at lunchtime then i hope you know YOU ARE THE BIGGEST FUCKING ASSHOLE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD

I’ve asked those kids if they wanted to sit with me and 9/10 they were complete assholes and told me they didn’t want friends.

Sometimes people who’ve been ostracized and bullied are leery of attempts to include them because they don’t want to open themselves up to mockery. Even when the attempt is genuine, they could still be apprehensive because they’re not used to being treated with any kind of respect or dignity, and may interpret it as a cruel joke. So, those kids might not have actually been assholes, they may have just been afraid… Which is all kinds of upsetting.

Yeah if you’ve been bullied for awhile you reach a point where you assume all attempts at friendliness or inclusivity are just part of some new game - to get more information out of you that your bullies can use, to put you in some kind of awkward situation, to humiliate you in some way.  So in that context, rejecting overtures of friendship is a self-defense mechanism.  And since your average bullied kid or even just natural loner kid isn’t going to open up to someone they don’t know just because you invite them to sit with you at lunch, at least not right off, you have no way of knowing if that’s what’s really behind their rejection.  

So, tl;dr, you’re still a piece of shit if you make fun of the kids sitting alone.

The one time I accepted someone’s (apparently genuine) request to sit at their table, I was ignored the entire time. At least when I sat alone I could eat my lunch and read my book in peace.

Honestly? Still nervous when people are nice to me. Even though I know they’re probably okay, I still don’t trust them.

guys she and one of the other girls that did it have already been arrested and are standing trial

like her mom was even arrested too

and her parents were just like, “she must’ve been hacked, we moniter her facebook” and I’m like “bitch it dont matter if she got hacked you’d still see the messages you just fucking ignored them” and then when she posted that update they were just like “oh our sweet little baby would never do that” and i’m just like “YOU STUPID FUCKING BAGS OF SHIT THE PROOF IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. YOUR DAUGHTER IS A CRAZY OUT OF CONTROL MEGABITCH. AND GUESS WHAT. IF YOU RAISED HER THE WAY YOU SAID YOU DID SHE WOULDN’T BE” and then her mom was supposedly arrested for neglect and i’m like “HOW COULD YOU KNOW A DAMN THING ABOUT HER IF YOU ACTED LIKE SHE WASN’T THERE YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY NEEDS TO GO TO HELL”

I’m sorry im following this case and it makes me really angry like THIS IS WHAT MAKES ME HATE EVERYONE

FUCK GOING TO HELL

i was listening to the radio talking about this, and apparently there were two girls more responsible for this girl’s suicide. one of them felt remorse, and the other (the girl that posted this facebook status) felt no remorse at all. and if you don’t think that’s fucked up in the slightest i don’t know what to tell you

harry potter and the year where neville got mercilessly bullied by a teacher to the point where his boggart is that teacher and thats saying something seeing as his parents were tortured by death eaters to the point where they dont recognize him anymore so maybe death eaters would be his worst fear but no it’s a teacher at his fucking school why isnt dumbledore doing anything

This is why I can’t stand that teacher and am really trying to understand of people can stan for them.

nationofsluts:

I don’t understand how people can think “it’s just a word” ever.

Words are almost the entire basis of our communication. I don’t think anyone hasn’t been affected by words at some point in their life, for better or for worse.

Have you ever listened to a song and you related to the lyrics so well it was as if they were meant for you? Has a characters monologue ever brought you to tears? Have you ever had to put a book down and just think because the writing was so powerful and eye opening? That’s the power of words!

If we can understand this, then how do people still think slurs are “just words”?

People can be permanently impacted by the harsh words they receive in middle school, high school, even younger or even older. These words can even prove to be fatal.

If we can understand this, how do people still brush off slurs? If dealing with harsh words during school years can be so damaging, why can’t people understand the effect centuries of abuse under a word can have on the group of people it helps to oppress?

And the people oppressed by slurs never get a break, they’re exposed to this crap as young as Pre K. They don’t get summer reprieves, and they’re not even necessarily safe at home. Because this shit is everywhere.

And while everyone else is being impacted by words, they’re being told that their feelings - and theirs alone - are invalid, that they need to grow a thicker skin, that they’re being pro-censorship.

I don’t understand people.

How can people say “words don’t mean anything” when the literal point of words is to have meaning?

say it with me now:

  • bullying the bully is not the answer
  • bullying the bully is not the answer
  • bullying the bully is not the answer
  • b u l l y i n g  t h e  b u l l y  i s  n o t  t h e  a n s w e r
  • BULLYING THE FUCKING BULLY IS NOT THE GODDAMNED ANSWER

I’m curious as to what constitutes “bullying” in this person’s handbook, because at my school, “bullying” included every form of standing up for yourself with the exception of asking nicely for them to stop or getting a teacher. Hilariously, bullying was only an administrative matter (that is, one that was punished by the vice principal and not on a case-by-case teacher basis) if the victim retaliated, thus ensuring that the only time someone would actually do anything about the victim’s bullying problem was when they themselves were “the bully.”

There’s a difference between standing up for yourself, verbally or physically if need be, and bullying, is what I’m saying.
