National Day of Silence ... Help Stop Bullying

Today is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) national day of silence which focuses attention on anti-GLBT bullying in our schools.

Words can kill.

'nuff said.

You're right. Not advertising perversion would probably cut bullying by 90% or more.

I wouldn't have published your mean spirited and ignorant comment if it had been anonymous. But, since you seem to be proud of your obvious ignorance, I support your right to display it in public. If you read the story about the 11 year old child who committed suicide because he was being taunted with anti-gay epithets, no one with an ounce of common sense, humanity or compassion, could possibly characterize his experience as having invited bullying by "advertising perversion." Your blame the victim approach is all too familiar and bespeaks the same level of insensitivity and ignorance as similar kinds of statements made about rape victims.

Bullying is always about the bullyer and never about the victim. But, you probably understand that from first hand experience.
