Re: Amanda Todd bullied into killng herself

Suicide is a selfish act, but it pains me to hear that people end their lives over issues they could of overcame. That's just my caring nature really.

Depression is a serious issue that nobody should ignore. Some people lose years of their life over it and it's not as easy to get over as people may make it out to be. It's no excuse for people to go overboard though.

Depression is indeed a serious issue, I can guarantee you that.

And yes, I also am one that thinks suicide is way too overboard and extreme. There's so many other ways you can fight something like this and who knows; maybe make things even better than they were before and this case was definitely fixable to an extent, it's sad that she didn't do that.

This youth generation is sad man, and sadly I'm still part of it (out of it soon though, thankfully).
There's a limit when it comes to picking on someone, which nowadays it is crossed way too many times, and the worst part of it is I don't see it ending soon, even with the countless anti-bullying campaigns. :/


Edit: Wow, there's still some 'meme-style' pictures around mocking her, some actually created after this happened. What the fuck is wrong with society these days?

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.

Re: Amanda Todd bullied into killng herself

I remember reading of this a bit and just saw some comments at first I was disgusted and felt bad for her, but the more I think of it the more I think she is selfish. Of her showing her boobs and having sex doesn't make her no saint. Just by seeing her a bit she was definitely someone that loved to get attention and is mentally unstable. Some of us are stronger in will some of us are weak in will and if we have no support people will do stupid things thats why gangs are created at times they feel empowered welcome as well getting in a clik. You do whatever it takes to get attention. The factor is for something so petty she commits suicide yet there is other people that get it worse (sexually abused as a child, raped, starvation, etc) and yet some don't go straight to suicide. Like some have mentioned its part of life you have to overcome your obstacles. Society I believe is getting a bit to soft, but if they are going soft than you have to make everything soft have to educate and aware children have more control over there fund programs etc to keep the bullying in control.

ps: a bit out of subject but it makes me LOL when someone posted some pics where kids didn't get an iPhone for Christmas and were bitching like no other....
