Re: Amanda Todd bullied into killng herself

People who commit suicide don't deserve empathy in my books. Sure, it might be a selfish viewpoint, but when they take their own life and leave their family, friends and support networks to suffer, then why should I feel empathy for them?

The key is to take steps to harden people the fuck up in modern society. As I've said in this thread before, and I'm sure others have posted similar thoughts, the way society is these days is that people are too PC and bubble wrapped and cannot accept criticism of any form. I know first hand on a professional experience that a student had a meltdown because I graded their paper as a D, and they averaged A's. The parents came down to whinge/discuss it, and only after explicitly citing the assessment criteria and allowing them to read the paper, did they realise that their child was whinging over nothing and left the situation be.

Bullying exists in every facet of life - school, home, work, society. It's inescapable and people with the delusions that it can be eliminated are kidding themselves. People just need to develop thicker skin and develop better coping mechanisms.

Bullied at school? Fight back. You might get your arse kicked, but they know you're not going to take it lying down.
Bullied online? Logoff and block the people attacking you.
Bullied at work? See school.

The propaganda spewed about by the 'anti-bully' army as a result of Amanda Todd is sickening. It's reminiscent of the KONY bullshit that swept social media last year and all these social activists felt as though they achieved something through hitting a like button.

Re: Amanda Todd bullied into killng herself

Who cares about this shit. Millions of people commit suicide every year but I don't see you guys crying about that.

You can't prevent suicide at all. It's a part of life. And yes I would care if I knew the person but i'm not going to cry over one suicide that happens everyday just because it's on the media.

Might as well post this.

Ulfric Stormcloak; not a racist, not a megalomaniac, not a savage, but a hero with heart & ambition.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done

Happy it's 50/50 in the comments section. At least some people don't buy into the bullshit.
