:et's talk about bullying and disability

New! Let’s Talk About Bullying and Disability

Information will be featured throughout November about disability-based bullying. Everyone is invited to get involved by sharing how they view the intersection between bullying and disability. The idea is using the medium of your choice, such as video, art, or written or spoken word — to respond to the question, “What do you want everyone to know about bullying and disability?”

Here’s how to get involved!

Thank You

I Care Because

Please don't bully. Bullying can make an impact on a persons life, a really big impact. I was bullied for a while and I actually started getting depressed because of it. I started self-harming like Demi also. But my parents found out. They weren't mad. They understood what I was going through. So I got help, and Im feeling greater than ever. And I never wish to go back to being bullied because it took precious years out of my child-hood. And I dont ever want another person to feel how I felt. Please put an end to bullying. BULLYING ENDS HERE.

I've been bullied before. People don't realize how much words hurt. I have a learning disability. I take a while to process information and I don't read that well. People make fun of me and call me stupid. I also have been harassed on the internet. People don't take the time to realize how badly things can hurt.They take it too far. It takes some people such a long time to realize how much words can actually hurt more than actions.  I really wish bullying would stop.  Sometimes, i'll just start breaking out crying out of no where because of how rude some people can be. Bullying is so wrong and it should really stop. I'm so thankful for my best friends that have stuck by me, as well as my family.

Alot of things have happened to me that are going on to others and I'm not happy about it. HELP STAND AGAINST THE BULLIES. STAND FOR THE SMALLER KIDS AND HELP THEM REGAIN CONFIDINCE!!!! NO ONE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN.

I care because i feel like i've been bullied so much. Not only directly to me but behind my back and the way people act around me. I've been bullied because of how i have facial hair and i'm a girl and how chubby my cheeks are. My parents don't haven't allowed me to remove the facial hair because they say i'm not old enough.... I care because when you're bullied you need to stand up for yourself and gain your self confidence back. Bullying definitely weakens your confidence but i learned to fight it. Be confident with who you are. Who you are inside and your personality will show who you really are rather than an unconfident, quiet person who's easy to pick on. Stand up for yourself and stay strong!
