    Beginning around the time of 6th and into 7th grade I began to experience what it's like to be bullied by those you thought were your friends. I was harassed in class, while presenting projects, while teachers that were supposed to be there to protect me simply stood by and said nothing. Things escalated from there to the point where an actual hate channel was created on YouTube so that people who hated me could have a place to convene and talk trash on me. They took one of my videos that I had posted as a fun way to goof off, which I had deleted before I even knew they had gotten it, and included the caption: "I watch this every morning and thank God that he did not curse me with what he cursed this girl." To see all of the comments broke my heart and broke my spirit. They were treating me like nothing, so that's how I began to feel. Like nothing. To this day I am so grateful for my amazing parents and the rest of my support system that somehow got me out of that environment and put everything that they had into building me up again from the floor where these kids had so carelessly put me. When I tried to report this horrible crime, I actually had the police officer assigned to me tell me that maybe I was bullied because I did something to deserve it. To this day I am not sure that PA has a legitimate law in place to protect kids like me, but either way I have made it my life purpose to get the information out there and to make everyone aware of this hidden horror. So parents please remember to educate your children and build them up, and kids don't get mad at your parents for checking up on you. They can help you if you let them. I hope my story will someday help make sure that no child, teen, or young adult will ever have to go through the pain that I did. That being said, I would not be the strong woman that I am if I had not been crushed only to be built up by those who truly love me.

    Me being transgender I tend to get bullied. When I was younger i went to a talent show. It was back when I was still a female. I sung in the show. Some kids loved it, like my best friend who is now my GF. I sung very well for that age. But after the show most of the kids teased me for my "cursed voice." My Girlfriend who I will name Lilly (not real name) helped me though those tough years. If you are being bullied or you see it. You know what to do. I'm glad I'm alive.

    As a sixth grader I was a bully. Beating people up saying mean things to everyone. Then I changed. I saw a girl in the bathroom cutting herself because of something I said. I knew then it had to stop. After that the rules got reversed. Everyone started bullying me and they still are 4 years later. I have been a cutter for three years and very suicidal. I am getting better but its still hard. I don't want anyone getting beaten up, called names, have rumors spread about them or be cyberbullied like I am. Every one needs to take a stand because its not right at all. Read more »

    I was bullied in elementary school and in middle school because of my weight and how I look. Kids would laugh and point, make fun of what I wore. Seventh grade I changed… all I wore was dark clothes and hoodies. My hair that was down to my mid back was cut up to my ears, I started wearing tons of makeup to hide “the ugliness”. I had finally had enough and was looking for an escape, I started cutting myself when I was 12 years old, I drifted away from my family, I popped pills, and eventually tried to kill myself. Obviously I failed. Again in high school I changed but for the better for myself. I did become cold towards people, I trusted no one, I was stuck up, and all I did was my work then leave. I had one friend through this all and he watched and kept me going through it all taught me how to stand up for myself. Last year my junior year in high school my baby sister was being bullied and I guess that just would not do because I then was bullied by the mother of the child who was bullying my sister. I took it to the principal of my school he just dismissed it, In a way he bullied me also because later that day he called me to the office and yelled at me asking what I had said to those girls, when I said I had not even seen them he told me if he got another complaint I would be taken out in handcuffs. This year I was a victim of cyber bullying, I received messages from a girl telling me to kill myself the world would be better off and calling me names. That night a friend of mine sent me a picture of some texts. It was the girl bragging that she had made a fake account and told me to do that. I took that to my principal and he just dismissed it once again. Bullying in my school has become a normal thing and it makes me sick!! The principals and teachers just over look it. This is my last year at that school before I graduate and I plan to change the bullying problem. Read more »
