Epic fail by the parents of the bullies, the bullies themselves. The schools could have done better as well.
I agree with Elaine. Are these children getting the idea for suicide from all of the media publicity? I cannot comprehend a 10-year-old even thinking of suicide. Where is her support?
Are you kidding me? Now we have ten year olds killing themselves? To be honest, I don’t think I would have known about suicide at that age. People, a little kindness to others. WTF! At some point we need to stop the cruelty.
We’re going about the whole gender question all wrong if this is how our children are behaving towards each other.
Kids can be so cruel. I wish We could make all children aware of the potential to hurt others with words. Be kind to all.
As an androgynous queer woman, I can attest that harassment based on gender non-conformity is often more vicious than homophobic bullying. Each person who trains their children to obey gender norms inadvertently trains them to police their peers. Our society needs a new dialogue about the vast spectrum of sex, gender and sexuality. We must all do our part.
