Bullying + Stereotyping

A 15 year old girl holds her 1 year old son; people call her a slut. But no one knew she was raped at 13. Make fun of someone for being fat, but you don't know that person has a serious medical condition that causes her to be obese. Call the old guy ugly, but.. you don't know he got a serious face injury after serving the country or saving a life. Stop bullying and stereotyping! Think before you start talking trash of others. Re-post this if you're against bullying and stereotyping. - Facebook status

i saw that on 1 of my friends status. i'm reposting it here instead on my Facebook profile.

I do not at all have the mind of a bully... in my mind bullies are intolerant of contrary opinion, domineering and rather cowardly. I would hope that none of those terms could be fairly used in describing me. - Conrad Black

Those who can, do. Those who can't, bully. - unknown

The whole idea of a stereotype is to simplify. Instead of going through the problem of all this great diversity - that it's this or maybe that - you have just one large statement; it is this. - Chinua Achebe

An understanding is perhaps better than an alliance, which may stereotype arrangements which cannot be regarded as permanent in view of the changing circumstances from day to day. - Edward Grey

not gonna say much about this, simply because bullying & stereotyping scenarios happened everywhere whether we realized it or not... the victims will smile & act as if it's nothing but who knows how much do they hurt...

Always put yourself in others shoes, if it hurts you, it probably hurts them too. - unknown
