Just a friendly reminder...
Mental and emotional abuse

When you've done all that? It is emotional and mental abuse. People who claim this as jokes are calling it jokes as a way to back peddle when someone has called them out on their behavior.

I'm sure some of you have seen this already, but just in case....

Nils Pickert's 5-year-old son likes wearing dresses. If anyone thinks that's odd they can take it up with Nils. He's the guy in the skirt.

The German dad has become a role model not only for his son, but for parents around the world, after a photograph of the pair holding hands in red skirts spread across the internet.
"Yes, I'm one of those dads, that tries to raise their children equal," he explained in an essay published alongside the photo in Emma, a German feminist magazine.

All I can say is that this guy is made of pure brillance. Well done :)

So, what do you all think about the article? Also, since it asked two questions in the last paragraph (which I bolded if you clicked on the cut), how do you protect a child from the cruelty of others and how can a child walk away without feeling defensive or ashamed? (I know we had a discussion similar to the first question two entries back when I did the poll, but it's good to discuss anyway)

BBG was created by me for two reasons in October of 2010 on Live Journal:
1. There were many suicides in October of 2010 from people being bullied until their breaking point because they were gay.
2. I'm a former victim of bullying myself, and I think it's time that bullying ends in our society.

You can join if you're a former victim, current victim, a former bully, a family member of someone that is bullied, a friend of someone that is bullied, or someone that's interested in the subject. You can read the rules on the info page, but one rule is absolutely vital to follow....DO NOT VICTIM BLAME. I don't want to see anyone blame anyone for being bullied at all. Bullying is a form of abuse, and it's high time it be treated like abuse. It's also time that society stop treating bullying like it's a normal part of life when it can have consequences for both bullied and bully in the long run. Not to mention, I'm sure it's not normal when someone considers suicide, homicide, both, or anything else that involves violence because they reached their breaking point of being bullied.
