85 posts categorized "BULLYING"
I have made this point 100 times (most recently when I was hilariously accused of "bullying" an anonymous closet case), so of course I was all about it when I read it in the Times: Not everything is bullying. To casually refer to everything as bullying is to rob it of its seriousness. Stop doing it or I'll beat your ass.

But Jackson Carter, a 21-year-old youth drop-in center volunteer from Utah, has changed all that—and he's having a big impact on the show with his empowering message for LGBT people, whether they be small, medium, large or extra-large.
Keep reading for my one-on-one with the role model who proves that a positive message is one size fits all...
Lady Gaga's open letter to Kelly Osbourne is pretty sanctimonious; I don't think I can handle adults referring to bullying as it pertains to other adults anymore. Even if I accept that adults can bully adults, Gaga says she's against it but engages in it, and in fact is engaging in it by writing an open letter to Kelly Osbourne, who is a paean compared to Gaga with her gigantic following.
I do not like Sharon Osbourne. I'm not exactly wild about Kelly, either. And I think it's fair to point out that all these fashion shows are just grown-up versions of bullying, which must be an odd message that kids receive when told it's always wrong to act that way, and then seeing stuff like this.
But Gaga's approach is all wrong, unnecessarily public and smacks of a Christ complex.
I haven't written her off or anything, I'm just turned off by this letter, as I was by her bizarre melt-down letter of a few months back.

It's sad when a boy wearing pink shoes can touch off a national debate, but let's at least make sure the debate is won for the side of what's right: That a kid should be able to wear these "ninja zebra" shoes without being judged or allowed to be bullied and should not be persuaded to stifle his impulse because others might react negatively. He's not in danger of anything more than teasing, and that can be explained and handled. He's a future role model, even if he isn't necessarily a future gay man.
