Why are there so many media bullies out there?
A facebook page created as a mockery because an actor mispronounced someones name is mean spirited especially when a learning disability could be in play. Many people with dyslexia go undiagnosed. Sadly it's a stigma that is hard to shake. I imagine it's humiliating to be scrutinized in the media for an unintentional faux pas!
Why do we need to humiliate celebrities in the media anyway? Are we trying to humanize them, or teach children how to formulate bullying tactics?
Are we all just a big bunch of hypocrites? Telling kids, reach for your dreams in one breath, but make no mistakes along the way because there are those waiting in the wings to pounce and mock your every move!
I read a facebook thread of a locally missing child, without knowing the circumstances people were so quick to criticize a 13 year old and his parents. It was shocking how many people had mean things to say. On a whole most Canadians are pretty kind and polite...but there is an underbelly everywhere of ignorant mean spirited adults!! Those who need to belittle and argue every moral discrepancy. Sadly a child who runs away has a problem that needs to be addressed. Problems that could be under a huge umbrella ranging from mental illness, addiction, learning disabilities to abuse. Many things go on behind closed doors that good upstanding citizens could never imagine. A child doesn't need to be ridiculed and berated for running away!!This wasn't suppose to be a rant like post. Sometimes I just need to purge these so obvious to me, thoughts! Hoping others will take note of how our whole society needs to change if we want to take a stand on bullying. When we laugh at
I am sick of seeing a famous young man sensationally humiliated in the media...a boy who has grandparents, and siblings that love him. Why are they even allowed to put someone urinating in a jail cell on television anyway? What is wrong with our society? Are we so unhappy with our comfortable lifestyles that we have to search for people to pull into the gutter? Children learn what they live.... I have said this all my life...it's seems true more than ever now.

What bothers you the most about the bullying that goes on in our midst?
