What is bullying? Bullying is hurting someone unreasonably or to cause embarrassment. School is supposed to be a place where students should feel safe and sound. Many students have difficulty to go to school every day due to bullying issues. Bullying is becoming a terrible problem in our society.
According to Yale University, Bullied victims are 7% more apt to commit suicide (Bullying Suicide Statistics 3). If parents really love their child then they would do almost anything to protect them from harm. Being transgender is hard enough within itself, but when bullying is added to the situation it makes it so much more difficult. Kids can be extremely cruel, and since their brains aren't developed, they can take that cruelness and make some bad decisions. Adults on the other hand are usually open to change and will be mostly accepting.
“Every two minutes another American is sexually assaulted” (Scope of the Problem). Schools needs to do more to inform and protect their students against sexual assault. Most people are the victims of sexual assault because they don’t know how to prevent it. If people are required to learn more about how to prevent sexual assault like say in a school then the number of sexual assaults per year should greatly decrease. There is also a problem when it comes to a student reporting that they were sexually assaulted in a school.
Discipline. According to Dr. Joseph Kosciw, GLSEN’s Chief Research & Strategy Officer (2016), “It is abundantly clear that LGBTQ students face disproportionately high levels of school discipline due to hostile school climates that ultimately deprive many of them, not only of their education, but also the success in life that education affords. Given the findings of Educational Exclusion, we must redouble our efforts to create supportive schools for LGBTQ students, particularly transgender and gender nonconforming students, students experiencing homelessness, students with disabilities and students of color.” He added, “Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students face high rates of school discipline, including detention, suspension
First counterpart she conveys is (1) having a higher knowledge and (2) their kids only taking what they can take(Text 5, Chapter 2 , Page 7). Which makes sense because if kids take part in these hard classes the parents feel as if their job is complete since these kids are following their parents commands. But sometimes there are situations where kids can’t deal with all the stress so they take an action which is completely sad and unacceptable. This topic is known to be as suicide it’s where a person does something that eventually ends their life. Between western and Asian kids; Chinese kids tend to have a higher rate of committing suicide because of all the amounts of hell they need to deal with from their home life but social life as well.
In Grant Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod states his belief that we seemingly “hate” the brightest kids in school partially because of some of the most “noted dropouts” in today’s society. Additionally, Penrod claims that the perceived hatred of intelligence in a high school setting is causing actual emotional harm to the children who are labeled as the “nerds” or “geeks”- thus, the classic “smart kids.” If entering just about any of the several thousand high schools around the country, they will hear choruses of “Did you actually study?’, “Why would you even bother studying- the game was on last night”, “Of course I didn’t study; I had football practice” or dozens of similar taunting phrases can be heard constantly
Bullying is a very serious issue when it comes to kids because it can lead to many different negative things. Kids will bully each other just because someones too old to be in there grade with them and that a very bad effect on how kids learn this is also another reason why social promotion should be allowed. Kids build many insecurity’s over time after they have been retained like not wanting to reveal there real age or talk about when they started school. Most kids start start to feel missed placed when there in a class with kids younger than them and that sometime effects how the child is learning thourgh the rest of there school life. This is another reason why social promotion is a good thing to do.
No longer does the pain fade when the school bells ring, instead this pain powerfully follows the victims home, the killers experiencing this are known as “traumatized killers” [Langman]. They are known to be social outcasts, and the more they are rejected by girls or abused by both family and peers, the more their hatred for society is increased, until they eventually lash out. According to Doctor Peter Langman’s studies, approximately 40 percent of school shooters experience some type of bullying[Langman]. But, approximately 54 percent of perpetrators have bullied others. It seems that not all killers are the same, some were more molded by pain afflicted by society, while
Sadly, the young perpetrators of school shootings have derived their sense of self from their social experiences of isolation, bullied harassment, and low hierarchical status, producing skewed and biased self-perceptions. These students are many times symbolically labeled and classed as, “weird,” “gay,” or “loser” due to non-conformist dress, behavior, or participation in unmasculine activities such as art and drama (Kimmel and Mahler 2003). Consequently, these labels tend to define how others treat and interact with these students (Ballantine and Spade 2015). Students displaying volatility in emotional self-management experience poor treatment. Young men who fall short or step outside of the representation of hegemonic masculinity are met with relentless persecution (Kimmel and Mahler 2003).
According to a survey, 88% of students at a school believe that failure on an assignment is a reasonable punishment for the violation of the honor code (Source E). Even students believe that violations of the honor code are so bad that they should result in failure. Threatening to fail students on an assignment holds back the urge to cheat. Students have a great fear of being caught because of the strict consequences that come with violating the honor code (Source F). With the fear of punishment suppressing any urge to cheat, commitment to the honor code becomes more and more prevalent.
Bullying Among LGBTQ Youth Can you imagine being tortured and ridiculed for something that you are unable to control? The youth members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning community are unfortunately put into this predicament often. Every day youth members of the LGBTQ community are rejected by their peers, religious institutions, and often times their own family members. This large scale bullying of LGBTQ community members creates an environment that puts its members at risk of mental health issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and substance abuse. From the moment a child is born they begin going through the process of socialization.
This would cause the students to become very suspicious—always questioning the legitimacy of different ideas. That is to say, children who were brought up in residential schools usually had a large range of trust issues, and consequently, lacked compassion for others. Finally, a disturbing quantity of students—both male and female—were raped by nuns and priests. You could only imagine the kind of impact that could have on an individual. Some students were considered lucky, if it only happened once, for many children were raped constantly, and some were even impregnated by their abuser.
Discrimination against LGBTQ people is important/needs to be addressed because so many people get treated unfairly because some people don’t support people being who they want to be and who they have a right to be. So many people get bullied, harassed, excluded because they’re transgender, bisexual, gay, lesbian, etc.- and it 's not right! On Hillary Clinton’s campaign website, she stated, “There are still too many places where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans are targeted for harassment and violence. There are still too many young people out there feeling hopeless and alone.” An article in the Washington post stated, “But previous Pew polling showed 53 percent of LGBT ers see themselves as facing "a lot" of discrimination.”
This quote is explaining how kids that are going to school and coming from better households than their peers can affect how they feel about school. Kids that come from poor incomes homes don’t enjoy school because maybe they feel like they aren’t good enough for it which makes them not want to go and get into gangs or things they shouldn’t be in. In conclusion This goes back to my reasoning on saying that the strongest cause of minority male incarceration in the U.S is young dropouts because most of the kids , teens , etc that get killed nowadays aren’t educated and involved in
