Bullying is serious. I know you here about this at school all the time and don't think much of it, because you don't see what people say happens. Normally kids don't just make fun of someone and beat them up, yes it does happen, but not a lot. What I've seen happen is a girl was called ugly and when she went home she cried for hours. It hurt her. So badly. She is anorexic and every time someone calls her beautiful she lights up like a star, but only for so long. She cries in private and doesn't let anyone see how hurt she is. Being bullied when she was younger because she wasn't the skinniest child in the school has ruined her life and she can't even remember what all was said, but she remembers that one comment and how it made her feel.. how it still makes her feel. The smallest remarks can hurt the most and can be just as bad as beating someone up. So, please sign this petition and help more people stand up against bullying, because maybe if someone would have said something the day she was bullied, she would be happy with herself.

      Im signing because i know all too well what it feels like to be bullied. I've always been called fat, and anymore its just something i blow off. Until i get home. Bullying destroyed me so much as a girl i stopped eating for days. A week at the most. I did this for years but never lost any weight. I have genetics..diabetes. I cant stop my weight, cant lower it. I acted like i was tough, but like the girl in the story, i went home and cried to myself every night, hoping life would get better. Will it? Stop bullying. Its wrong. Some people cant help being different, overweight, underweight, intelligent, under intelligent. Its not our faults, its just..the way we are. Bullying...Bullies werent made that way. They play that way, and its time to stop this game. Hate the game, understand the player when he loses. Stop Bullying. Love you Emma(:

      Serious bullying such as this is damaging to a human being! We all have feelings and it never feels good to have to put up with bullies that overpower you and make you look stupid no matter what. I remember going to a public school and I was underweight. I had been underweight most of my life and was never anorexic nor bulemic. However, kids thought it was okay from elementary school, high school, and college (not so much middle school) to shout out and call me the "anorexic girl" and I've heard people that didn't know my name and called me the "anorexic girl" or the "really really really really really skinny girl" or sometimes I was called "the tiny girl" just because of my weight (I know my height couldn't have been the problem - I ended up being 5'7''). I remember in a college English class, my teacher brought in some type of bread that was left over at a teacher's meeting that morning and shared it with the class. He went around giving it out and came near me and said, "Here, take one." I said, "No thanks." and he said, "Why not?" and I said, "I don't do the whole breakfast thing well." Then he said, "Oh, you sure? It's delicious!" and I said, "Yes." and then he said, "Alright then." and moved on. Actually, that class was early of the morning and if I eat breakfast within an hour of waking up, I usually throw it up. My stomach couldn't handle breakfast since I got to middle school. A couple students across the room thought it was okay to make fun and shout it out loud. One student said, "Oh! She must be anorexic! Look how skinny she is!" and everyone stared and another student said, "Yeah! I bet she doesn't eat much anyway!". I simply ignored it, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't offensive. It was HIGHLY OFFENSIVE! I found the weight comments highly annoying. No one will ever be the PERFECT weight in our society! It's either, "You're anorexic!" or, "You're too fat!" I am now at an ideal weight for my height, which feels so much better and I was actually trying what I could to add on some pounds. I don't get made fun of too often, but it doesn't look like I've put on weight so I still get it. Most of the time from exploding or feeling too down about myself, I would just think in my mind, "They're jealous that they're not as skinny as me and that they have to eat salads when I can eat whatever I want because I have a fast metabolism!" It helped me through, but some things that people say are plain ugly! I absolutely hate it when people make comments about my weight! The only person that can make comments about me or my weight is me and my husband (my husband because he never says anything negative - he just wants to make sure I'm healthy and feeling well). Other students should also stand up against bullies and comfort those that are bullied! Those who are bullied normally need friends who will stand by them through thick and thin and everyone deserves to know that they are beautiful!

      I used to be bullied the the most horrible people inside and outside of school. This includes my family. I know what it's like to be bullied and it isn't right. It needs to be stopped.

      Because I used to be and it used to make me feel awful with some of the things kids said, still say. Even if i wasn't kids don't need to be this mean and get kicks out of watching others suffer. It's not right, it's sick and it's boarderline inhuman with some of the things they do!
