One Comment on “Online Bullying: Laugh at it and You’re Part of It”

  1. I do have a problem with such ads in that the predictions of dysfunction in the target as a result of bullying can so easily for some people become a self-fulling prophecy. Also, bullies tend not to care about the consequences of their behavior as long as there are none for themselves (too often neither do parents of bullies care).

    Rather, ads should depict bullies as they are: pathetic cowards who live in fear of not being noticed, or of being thought weak, and in need of civilizing themselves.

    The less focus on the bullied the better, unless you’re there personally to step in and put a stop to it. No one, children nor adults, are helped by envisaging themselves as weak, helpless victims.
