The Epitome of Internet Douche Bags
Statistics of Cyberbullying
- Around half of teens have been the victims of cyber bullying
- Only 1 in 10 teens tells a parent if they have been a cyber bully victim
- Fewer than 1 in 5 cyber bullying incidents are reported to law enforcement
- 1 in 10 adolescents or teens have had embarrassing or damaging pictures taken of themselves without their permission, often using cell phone cameras
- About 1 in 5 teens have posted or sent sexually suggestive or nude pictures of themselves to others
- Girls are somewhat more likely than boys to be involved in cyber bullying
What can we do?
Well, first off:
- Don't send nude pictures of yourself to anyone! Don't even take nude pictures of yourself.
- It makes logical sense to say 1 in 10 teens had embarrassing or 'damaging' pictures taken of themselves without their permission. Because I know for a fact that more than 10% of teens are uncaring of their bodies for the most part, they want to party and have sex, and do drugs. so if your going to do that in public then be ready for the consequences.
- It's NOT fair to say one can't be made fun of if one decides to do something possibly embarrassing. Almost every teenager these days has a smart phone with a camera. So you should know that you are always possibly a suspect of being recorded, so don't do anything stupid on purpose! Use your head!
- The kind-hearted response you've been waiting for is that we just need to treat each other better overall. American society has been designed to call out the ones that are different from the main group, we are trained to exclude the minority. Which is not fair, give the person a chance before you decide if you like them or not, and if you don't, just mind your own damn business and stop making kids kill themselves over something ridiculously small.
