…except for every child, teenager and adult that has ever hurt themselves and/or killed themselves rather than deal with it any longer. What the fuck, Newsweek?
Hey now, we’re with you on that! Reblogged to spur such a discussion. Don’t shoot the tumblessenger.
dear newsweek: when presenting posts without your own commentary, generally that’s taken as agreement by the OP/Reblogger - at least on the internet. go ahead and incite dialogue but do it intelligently tyfyt
OK, noted. I don’t know that I necessarily agree with the whole “reblogs = agreement” or “retweets = endorsement” thing but lots of people seemed to think we were suggesting cyberbullying is a joke, so we’ll certainly keep that in mind for next time. For the record, cyberbullying sucks.
This is a legit headline in today’s Evening Standard on an anti-bullying report in which there is “anecdotal evidence of students being told to act less gay or to wear their hair differently as teachers felt they were making themselves a target for bullies”. Yep. Or, as one Reddit commenter sums things up, “What the actual fuck.”
