Being bullied? Just act less gay, advise teachers

Schoolchildren bullied over their sexuality are being advised by teachers to act "less gay," it emerged today.

The shocking claim has been made by pupils in a report on bullying in schools in Essex.

Teenagers who are picked on for their appearance told how they were advised to wear their hair differently if they wanted to avoid being teased.

Yes, because that is going to work. Tell the girls getting raped to "dress less slutty" instead of telling people not to rape other people. Tell the kids getting picked on to "act less gay" instead of dealing with the bullies.

How about DON'T BULLY!

Not all the bully victims are gay. This whole bully victim committing suicide came to the forefront because of Megan Meier and Phoebe Prince, who were not gay. Interesting to note that one of Prince's bullies, Flannery Mullins has a Lesbian mother. In the Meier case, it started because she called Lori Drew's daighter, Sarah, a "Lesbian". This would point to pathological self-hatred on the bully's part. I think bullies are more prone to self-hatred than non-bullies. Bullies are more likely to be paranoid and narcissistic.

Personality and neuropsychological correlates of bullying behavior

No surprise that Paranoid, Passive-Aggressive, Histrionic, and Borderline Personality Disorders are strong correlates for bullying.


Many evil figures had issues of self-hatred like Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Charles Manson, and Fred Phelps. Not surprisingly, Lori Drew and South Hadley 6 (Kayla Narey, Flannery Mullins, Ashley Longe, and Sharon Chanon Velazquez) have a lot in common with them, from a psychological standpoint.

Some teachers and others might believe that they are genuinely helping with these little tidbits of information.

It would be much better to just say, Don't Bully, but the problem is that that doesn't work. The sad part is that so many kids would be willing to change who they are, just to make the tormenting end, and often that doesn't even help.
