They don’t even know us. If they just got to know us they would see we are just like them. - Jimmy Darling AHS:Freak Show. What this quote is trying to say is that just because one person is different than the other, it does not mean they are not human.

Lastly, Teresa Gonzolez was harassed because she was a bit bigger than the kids at school, but she showed them that she did not care what they thought because their opinion was unnecessary. This quote is important to me, because I think it is a big problem that people just judge people before they even know them, they just see someone that different than they are and bully them, me as an individual I am short and people do not really bully me about my height, but that was something I was born with and I can not change who I am to please someone else, so as I get older there will be always be people who will have an opinion about you.

In Celia Behind Me, the narrator Elizabeth is bullying a young girl named Celia to disassociate herself from her, advancing herself in the social hierarchy of her friend group. The narrator in “The Scarlet Ibis” trains Doodle, his disabled brother, to walk.

In the short story “Fear” by Gary Soto, and “The Case Study”. There are bullies that show to be caused by identity and choice.

Bullying is a very terrible and overwhelming experience for any person to experience. Most people being bullied find that standing up for themselves is not an option because of the allusion that they have no power over the antagonizer. So imagine if the bullies were a fourth the age of the patronize victim.

Bullying is a growing issue in our society affecting many people. People do not realize the damage they are doing to people and their families. Not only do the bullies hurt the people verbally, but they can get hurt mentally which could lead the victim to harm themselves or commit suicide.

Chris Crutcher wrote Whale Talk to show how bullying can dramatically hurt people by expressing acts of violence, using profanity and racial slurs.

So, which horror movie villain’s costume is scariest? Can there ever be an objective answer to this? Some find clowns like Pennywise from Stephen King’s It to be frightening. Others get the creeps from slow-shuffling zombies, closing in on their next meal of human flesh and organs.
The allure of serial homicide and ‘celebrity evil’ is apparent through media and entertainment sectors of society, whereby serial killers and those classified as ‘bad’ celebrities have become dominant features of the popular culture scene. Box office successes such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Spiderman, highlight the public’s appetite for the ‘grand battle between good and evil [with] identifiable heroes and villains’ (Norden 2007:90). Norden argues that the danger of these films portraying good and evil, heroes and villains, is not so much about the excessive violence that would create ‘a nation of Columbine killers’ (2007:90), but the ‘atrophying of the imagination of the young…and hopeful stories about the battle in the human soul between good and
