Re: Amanda Todd bullied into killng herself
Sure one should be saddened by her having to take her life to 'escape' the situation she was in, but one can't also help but feel she placed herself in said position due to her actions.
It sickens me today that people crap on so much about bullying and it's disastrous effects. Fucking hell, some people need to develop some resilience and learn to overcome shit in a more appropriate manner. If you're being called names, boo fucking hoo. If you're being vilified online, logout or block those people. If you're being physically assaulted, take a stand and fight back.
Resorting to suicide, imo, is a cowards way out. It solves nothing, you cause your family and friends deep pain and send them into depression.
Perhaps with adequate education of the kids these days, and with parents being more informed, the nonsense of online bullying can be dealt with appropriately. I know in my Year 6 classes I basically tell my kids not be morons online and don't post stupid shit that can get you in shit.
