This week was all wrong. It broke and redefined all the conceptions I had of my school but unfortunately the conclusions were scary and revolting. Our school is considered an ‘elite’ high school which only brilliant girls attend but sadly intelligence doesn’t always rhyme with good conduct or nice manners…
Bullying is the act of intimidating a weaker person. Bullying is being noisily domineering. Bullying is aggressive behavior, with negative intent, directed from one person to another where there is a power imbalance. Bullying is similar to a hate crime. But most importantly, bullying is wrong! Everywhere these can be read, be it on the net or in brochures, and all promote ‘reporting bullying’, ‘standing up’ and ‘speaking out’. They say stuff like ‘Kids must be able to safely report incidents of bullying, knowing when to report, how to report, and where to report. Students must know that they will be heard and that you will back them up.’ Why then? Why is it so hard to understand in an ‘elitist’ school that this is so?? Why is there no backing up? Why are people trying to shush down the affair? Why is it all being left unpunished? Why is the blame falling on the shoulders of the miserable victim? <<By the way the poor girl was ambushed, threatened and insulted by a group of at least 10 persons>> Why should the warnings be given to the ones who supported and defended the victim in question?
So many questions…so little logic >.<
