Since the dawn of organized education and the collective gathering of human beings… there have been bullies. “Bully”s are normally seen as a 6th grader giving a noogy to a 4th grader, or pussier 6th grader. It’s a part of growing up, and any human being alive should be given a taste of humility and given this obstacle to overcome. Bullying can happen any where at any time. If humans interact with each other the act of bullying WILL HAPPEN. Physically, mentally or flat out verbal rape or in any context in which human beings interact with each other. So school, church, or work have this possibility.
This article has come about from the Rutgers student suicide after he had his gay encounter streamed online. Now because of this, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg is proposing a new legislation against bullying.
Bullying every day in the same fashion for years on end is pretty ridiculous. Eventually people move on, times change, and people aren’t kept around a bully forever. In the rare case it does go on for a long time then the anti-bully law looks pretty good on paper. But in reality… I could be charged with harassment and bullying for photoshopping my friends face into a gay photograph. This… IS UNACCEPTABLE!
Couple people kill themselves because they cant handle bullying.. repeat, A COUPLE.. Or we leave it how it is so I can continue giving friends shit, and ‘bullying’ them as they define it. This kid didn’t kill himself because of bullying.. he committed suicide because a deep secret was broadcast on the internet. This is fucked up, Im not going to lie and if they want to outlaw this kind of invasion of privacy, and enforce it on the kids that did it to him… Im all for it. But Im completely against any ‘bullying/harassment’ law that can be abused by pussy ass people who cant handle being made fun of. Sure it might hurt your feelings, so go away! Political correctness and pansy ass people are going to pass a law hurting my freedom of speech. I will not allow this…
Clementi’s suicide has created a large nation wide discussion about gays and bullying. Rutgers had its own event, organized by the university and the gay rights activist group Garden State Equality. Do I think its ok that some kid had his gay encounter webcam taped and thrown on the web? No. I don’t. Do I think its ok to create an anti-bullying law? NO, I don’t. People get made fun of for their differences, they get mocked, and they get satirized. It’s a check and balance to the world and creating a law against ‘bullying’ when it includes making fun of people is horseshit. I want to make gay jokes, racial jokes, gender jokes, religious jokes etc… so where does it end!? Is a religion going to try and pass a law on bullying people who openly believe their religion is Jedi!? (which is true, there are Jedi churches and a belief structure)
Please for the love of god don’t let raw emotions of this suicide let you get manipulated… This law is bullshit, and if anything there is already a code of conduct and policing of harassment in schools and in workplaces, we don’t need a FEDERAL LAW!
