That's pretty ******** hard when you're being bullied.
You don't just ignore bullying, it's not just a thing you tune out.
If they then persists with the bullying through the internet, turning off your computer doesn't make you feel better.

I hope that when you step on a lego it's barefoot.

After a certain point, it becomes almost impossible to ignore.

            This right here is very true.

            It's hard to ignore a bully, especially when it becomes physical. I remember back in middle school and high school, I was pushed, my shirt was always tugged at, and at one point someone sprayed perfume in my eyes in art class. Not easy to ignore someone when you are in pain, especially both physically and mentally.

            No one should ever have to put up with that sorta thing. It's not easy to just walk away from it.

Definitely. It's unfortunate adults don't realize that, and bullies can use zero tolerance policies against their victim even if it means they get expelled as well.


Oftentimes the people working at the schools are either too frightened to do anything, or are powerless to stop it. There are so many policies they have to jump through like flaming hoops. Also if any of the bullying happens off school grounds (i.e- bus stop, online) they cannot do anything. Dealt with four years of that crap when my sister was harassed by some punk and his friends at high school.

Even though the kid would be sent to the principals office for harassing her, or getting his friends in on it - it got to the point where they only sent him out with a warning. They couldn't do anything, they expected his parents to do something but they were just as awful as he was. Also a lot of the harassment was online, and despite everything being saved and documented - the school refused to touch it. So pretty much my sister was left to fend for herself :/

Cyber-bullying doesn't exist.
Remember, there's a magical button that the elders speak of. You press it to make bad people go away.
Also, you can simply turn off the ******** computer and go read a book or watch TV.


As for the in-school bullying, you definitely shouldn't mind what they say to you. Even if they're picking on you for being gay. Hey! You're gay! LOVE IT!!!


I'm tired of seeing these kinds of stories. Please, for the love of Cthulhu... help yourself before you lose it!


I agree with you about cyber bullying.

Buuuut. When it comes to Irl bullying there is only so much you can "brush off". I for example had a hard time ignoring getting beat up and thrown into lockers almost daily.

Different people can handle different things eventually if your alone it really can become unbearable.

This is so sad! cat_cry I wish there wasn't so much hate in the world.. It just breaks my heart to know that stuff like this actually happens. I hope we find a way to stop this.

My prayers are with the family. -sigh- When will stories like these end?



"I laugh, I love, I hope, I try
I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry
And I know you do the same things, too
So we're really not that different, me and you."


I've been asking myself the same thing for years, it's going to get worse before it gets better.

I was bullied in school, some of us are strong enough to ignore it and some of us just can't handle it. It really seems to take a huge tole on kids today. There have been suicides left and right in this generation of kids then previous ones.

He was taken off life support earlier today, I heard he had passed away but all the news articles I'm finding aren't mentioning that part. Perhaps there's hope.

LaGrande is a small town in very rural eastern Oregon. I'm sure being openly gay in farming/cowboy country was difficult and I'd bet he was one of the easiest targets out there. No, I'm not supporting the bullying.

I see everyone asking what more can be done, when will these stories end... etc.. so what are you doing to stop the bullying?

Apparently, you misread.
I meant you should love yourself for who you are.

Sucks to be you, then.

Are you serious? neutral
You do know that people can and will make multiple accounts JUST to torment people, right? And just turning off your computer won't make it go away. It's also giving more power to said bullies. And as far as "just ignoring it" it's really not as easy as that. Nor is "Just go get yourself some help!!!" easier said than done.
I agree with sltttbrgr, I hope you step on multiple legos.

Also, instead of just ignoring bullies, we STOP THE BULLYING!
and I really hope he pulls through. sad

It says that the 15 year old was still alive, right? I hope he survives. I really do hope so... I wish that bullying would just stop.

O yes. Let's blame the victim. What you said is no better than someone who says that to stop rape women just need to dress more modestly.

Me too. He sounds like a really, really sweet kid.

What makes me feel the worst about his/her post is that I used to go on Gaia and post the same things. (Sorry Vamp, by the way, if you see this. You were always calling me out on it and I didn't listen. It only really struck me when I hear how ugly it sounds coming out of someone else.)

PS. Not to sound like a creep but you're cute and your tits are bangin' in your sig.
