“What’d he ever do? Why does he deserve to be treated like this?’ I think all of us know the answer to this. He’s different. He’s quiet; he’s sensitive. He doesn’t act like a macho jerk. He just doesn’t fit in…and you know what that means. We all know what that means. You have to fit in around here in order to be accepted. God forbid someone could be their own individual. God forbid someone could be unique in any way!”
Bullying is one my favorite topics from the psychological point of view. The statistics of cruelty and violence towards the homosexuals are astonishing and the traumas of the victims are enormous, both physical and mental, sometimes even fatal. It's very important to get the anti bullying message across to as many people as possible, in my opinion, and teach them to keep an open mind in life.
