Life in school is awesome, you learn important things, get to know people, make friends, make fun activities, get in a relationship, make sports, and many other interesting things. But we all know the known issue with the bullies. And not only that, but some teenagers can be very aggressive verbally and offend other persons, including those in certain categories. Stereotypes make some people feel so bad and often they don’t feel safe making friends, many of them will isolate and develop anti-social behavior. The following story is a sad example, the story of a girl who was criticized because of how she dressed. Judging people is so wrong and people who witness such events should stand up immediately for the victims, otherwise, their view of life can be changed forever.
Bailey is an overweight teenager and she usually doesn’t care about what other people say, but one day she felt like enough is enough. Because it was a very hot summer day, she took a dress on, and as soon as she entered the school doors, she felt the negativity around immediately. Students started to look at her in a judgy way and she was verbally abused. It was such a painful experience that she contacted her mother to bring her a new set of clothes.
Why it was so painful? Well, one of the bullies made a picture as she was heading to the classroom and posted online, on Facebook. After the class finished, she checked her social media account and she saw that her colleagues were insulting her and laughing about her looks. A guy named Dylan posted a picture from the back, showing her legs, and captioned the image in an insensitive way.
She texted her mother and she arrived in no less than five minutes at the school, with a new outfit for her daughter. Her mother couldn’t stand and get over this event and posted the whole story online and soon the case became viral, helping in the fight against this type of abuse often found in schools and not only.
As we know that this behavior is widely met in this type of environment, we will ask you to share this post in mass so we can make her story known and fight against these stupid stereotypes. What do you think? Imagine that someone you know or maybe your kid might be in a similar situation.
