I recently wrote a blog on bullying [see here]. The person I was writing about has now described how she was previously a victim of bullying and relates her experience. It makes a really interesting read:
Violence is bullying and most bullies will not sit and debate or discuss because fear drives them and their life is about power and somehow justifying their methods of denigration of others in order to justify their erroneous ideas.
I have been a victim of bullying and lost my teaching position because someone wanted to teach me a lesson about who is boss. Real leaders are not afraid of dissent because only with dissent do we learn and grow. If we all agreed with one another, what a strange world it would be.
I don’t care what culture, colour, gender or sexuality you are, respect is paramount in dealing with others and a good sense of humour.
One would expect a victim of bullying would be a little more understanding of the issues, especially when it comes to their personal views on homosexuality.
Clearly it’s not always the case.
