Cynthia,
Good article. You are speaking the truth.

"As a consequence of speaking out publicly as having been bullied in school, I've observed an uncomfortable phenomenon: people frequently do not want to believe that bullying or abuse took place and will respond to the victim with a viciousness that rivals the original abuse."

I have personally witnessed this reaction to your talking about about this subject on the Topix page when you first brought up the issue. And to those of you who had that response I think you should be ashamed of yourself. I put anyone who has had that reaction in the same category as someone who has had a rough day at work and takes it out on the family pet because it's the most defenseless. I'm sure all of those people reading this article who had that reaction knows who they are and should do some serious soul searching.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
