Defining Bullying Down

Defining Bullying Down | Bullying and literature | Scoop.it
“ The word “bullying” is overused — expanding, accordionlike, to encompass both appalling violence or harassment and a few mean words.” All the misdiagnosis of bullying is making the real but limited problem seem impossible to solve. If every act of aggression counts as bullying, how can we stop it? Down this road lies the old assumption that bullying is a rite of childhood passage. But that’s wrong. Bullying is a particular form of harmful aggression, linked to real psychological damage, both short and long term. There are concrete strategies that can succeed in addressing it — and they all begin with shifting the social norm so that bullying moves from being shrugged off to being treated as unacceptable. But we can’t do that if we believe, and tell our children, that it’s everywhere.

Cyberbullying and Increased Accountability by Social Networks

Cyberbullying and Increased Accountability by Social Networks | Bullying and literature | Scoop.it
“ An in-depth look at cyberbullying and the accountability that social networks must take when combating this spreading disease of hatred and hurt.” It began with Rahteah Parsons. She was only 15 years old when she was sexually assaulted by 4 boys. When a photo of the attack was circulated, Rahteah endured incessant mocking and harassment by classmates, both in school and in social media. Unable to deal with the enduring humiliation, Rahteah attempted to take her own life April 7th of this year. She died a few days later. She was only 17. For two years she suffered. Then, earlier this month, tragedy struck as 14-year-old Hannah Smith, from Lutterworth in Leicestershire, hung herself after “repeated messages on Ask.fmencouraging her to kill herself and criticizing her appearance.” Ask.fm had already been reportedly linked to 4 other teenage deaths in the last 3 months.

Gay young people still face bullying at school | Bullying and literature | Scoop.it
“ 55% of lesbian, gay and bisexual young people experience homophobic bullying at school http://t.co/AtcjY69y...” The teenage years are a challenging time for many young people. But for those who think they might be gay, lesbian or bisexual, it can be even more bewildering. According to a new study published on Tuesday by the gay equality organisation Stonewall, 55% of lesbian, gay and bisexual young people experience homophobic bullying at school; 96% say they hear words like "poof" or "lezza" in the classroom, something that can be "hugely damaging" to children who are trying to come to terms with their sexuality, says the charity's chief executive, Ben Summerskill.

“Sticks And Stones:” Does Facebook and Twitter Give Bullying More Power? | TIME.com

“Sticks And Stones:” Does Facebook and Twitter Give Bullying More Power? | TIME.com | Bullying and literature | Scoop.it
In Emily Bazelon's latest book, "Sticks and Stones," the senior editor for Slate argues that the Internet and social media make teen bullying more vicious and challenging to control. In an interview with the New York Times, Bazelon acknowledges parents’ role in navigating bullying as a tough one: “It’s obviously a huge challenge for parents, finding the balance you strike between protecting kids and expecting them to be a little bit tough, and learn how to stand up for themselves. It starts with that base idea that you have to know your kid, and know what they’re capable of, and give them room to do what they can do — not step in reflexively whenever there’s a problem. I think that builds some resilience in,” she says.

From Victims to Victors: Bully Documentary Creates Inspiration

From Victims to Victors: Bully Documentary Creates Inspiration | Bullying and literature | Scoop.it
“ Three years after the premiere of the documentary Bully, the kids featured in the film have transformed from victims into victors.” ‘Bully’ director Lee Hirsch was bullied as a kid in Long Island, New York. He spoke of how he would get punched in the arm everyday when walking home; making his arm not colored with black and blue bruises, but a permanent yellow sleeve from the routine beatings. He couldn’t even talk to his dad because his dad told him to just man-up. He felt alone. Amazingly, he made his experience an experience of reason and consequently, he made the documentary Bullyand created The Bully Project to inspire people into taking action against bullying. Three years later, CNN’s Anderson Cooper follows up with Alex Libby, Kelby Johnson, and Kirk Smalley who were featured subjects in the Bully documentary.

Melissa Kite was the most unpopular girl in her school | Bullying and literature | Scoop.it
If you are bullied at school, you see, you never stop feeling bullied, no matter how old you are. It is absurd that I am 41 years of age and a group of women can still reduce me to tears. To be fair to the bullies, I was an awkward, argumentative, pedantic nerd of a schoolgirl. I know, shocking isn’t it?
