Bullying Based on Sexuality
Bullying has always been a problem, especially among youth. In today’s society, so much bullying is concentrated on sexual orientation and gender. The site provided below lists some very shocking statistics on the LGBTQ youth community and bullying. Young gay men are often bullied the most. To be gay is outside the masculine identity, and therefore labeled “abnormal”. Other young boys reinforce their own masculinity by bullying and emasculating those who different than themselves. I strongly believe there is nothing wrong with being gay, lesbian, transgender, or anything else. The statistics are sickening and most be put to a stop. When children no longer feel safe at school, society should take notice.
