I was 12 at the time the bullying started. In middle school and afraid. I got teased everyday for what I wore and my weight. I was called porky, fatass, slut, the usual. I was a cutter, bulimic, I've actually considered suicide a couple of times. I talked to councilers and all they did was try to make us talk it out. That never stopped them from calling me names and pushing me down. I told my mom and she just told me to go talk to the counciler. Obviously that didn't work out. Things got worse over the year and the main girl that bullied me punched me. It started a fight and everyone was just recording, no one was trying to stop it. The securities that were supposed to be there had somehow dissapeared. When the principal talked to me he told me it was my fault. That i had urged her to do it to me. He was planning on suspending me because there was a rumor i started the fight. I went home that day to find the video all over the internet. My dad took it to the principal and was shocked he asked me why i never said anything and I told him I did. All he did was talk to the girl, suspended her for 2 days and the bullying began again. I had to be pulled out of school because of all the bad things going on. No one should ever go through such a thing. We need to make a difference. The schools never want to be involved and it's about time for a change. We need to speak up and be heard!
Words don't hurt. People behind the words hurt.
