Quote from Tucan
Funny how Mexican obesity rates are higher.
Cyberbullying is a problem, but kids get drawn to the screen and realise if they don't argue there could be linked arguments IRL which you're afraid of. Anxiety hurts when you've just been insulted online and you have to go into school the next day with a knot in your stomach about what is going to happen and if you're going to get the same or even more IRL.
If you've been called fat online, it hurts you more because you don't know what the other person is like, the fact you can't go to their house and strangle them till they start gargling blood is also a downside.
People need to realize words are words, and only hurt you as much as you let them. Which is why I think it's the dumbest thing ever when parents raise their child in a picture perfect world, away from all harm and tell them life will always be like that. Because guess what? It won't. And when these kids go out on their own, whether it's the internet or outside, and someone treats them a little different than how they were raised in their bubble of perfection, they snap and cry and kill themselves because it's not "right", it's not "how life is". So that's why I think kids need to "man up" and actually face there problems, and take them into their own hands. Someone making fun of you online? Turn off the machine, walk outside, and realize a world where words are nothing but noises that people spew their awful opinions and ideas with.
And to Filly, I'm not reading that, sorry babe.
