Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.”

“The common mistake that bullies make is assuming that because someone is nice that he or she is weak. Those traits have nothing to do with each other. In fact, it takes considerable strength and character to be a good person.”

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something sometime in your life.”

“If there are no heroes to save you, then you be the hero.”
-Anita Kanitz

“If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more.” – Taylor Swift

"It's important to stand up to all forms of bullying, and it's even more important for those who are around you to be just as courageous and stand with you! "
-Normani Kordei

I think bullies and their helpers and supporters need to be removed and punished everywhere. In kindergarten, school, university, at work, at the social networks. I do not have the slightest understanding of mediation and conversation, because it brings nothing, because it help the bullies not the victims. Punishment of the parents, the teachers and headmasters of bullies who help the bullies is very important. And helpers and supporters must also permanently removed, it can not be that these people make their lies on parent evenings or teach as a teacher or as a principal run a school or work in the workplace and even as superiors or that they make again and again unpunished internet slandering and cyberbullying. It's like putting a knife into a murderer's hand and saying, keep it up. That must have an end.

I have been the victim of extreme cyber bullying for 16 years. The perpetrators are a former outrageous ex-tenant and his entire circle of friends, acquaintances and as it looks like relatives of him. Unfortunately, I had to learn it myself, you get here very little or no help.That must change. Some foreign female friends had the same problem. They got rape threats and rape jokes and sadistic porns and were slandered on the social media.

Bullying connected with misogyny is everywhere:

At High School I was bullied, harassed, stalked and defamed by a narcisstic male classmate (a real dickhead). There were rape threats too.There were bystanders, because if a girl didn't want sex with guys, which are interested in her, then is something wrong with her. She is stupid, mad and not normal, so they said.

At my workplaces I must terminated three times my workplace, because there were rape attempts, sexual harassment and bullying by horny collegaues and bosses (male idiots). The male idiots (very stupid pricks) had helpers, because women are sluts and men are men, so they said.

My perverse Muslim Australian (a real chicken shit) ex-tenant is stalking me with his friends for 13 years. The stalking includes rape threats, death threats, tracking, burglary attempts, slandering, cyberbullying, mailing of rape mails, rape and revenge porn videos of other females, hacker attacks, telephone terror, damages to property. His friends called me a slut and a whore and a Femnazi.

The reason was in all cases that I showed these men the could shoulder, women and girls are not sex toys and sexual garbage.

Bullying connected with sexual harassment, rape, hate speech is very common worldwide.

We are all the change for a better world we are waiting for. But we must fight for it.

Such people deserve harsh prison sentences. This must change in the future.
Blaming the victims is not the solution, blaming and punishment of the offenders are the solutions. Victim blaming is often done by females, that is very silly, how can a clever woman or girl not be on her own side.?

Hate crimes, sexual harassment and bullying against women and girls are found worldwide. That must have an end.

The statistics on bullying and suicide are alarming:

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Over 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost 7 percent have attempted it.
Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University
A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying

Bully-related suicide can be connected to any type of bullying, including physical bullying, emotional bullying, cyberbullying, and sexting, or circulating suggestive or nude photos or messages about a person.

Some schools or regions have more serious problems with bullying and suicide related to bullying. This may be due to an excessive problem with bullying at the school. It could also be related to the tendency of students who are exposed to suicide to consider suicide themselves.

Bullying does not just take place in school or at any place where you have to be physically present to be bullied. Unfortunately, there is what is known as cyber bullying. Although this happens with just the computer monitor or a device in front, it is as cruel as any other type of bullying. Some may say that this is not even serious, but cyber bullying can damage a person emotionally and mentally for a long time. What is even worse is that, this can result in suicide. The stories of ask.fm bullying related suicides can prove this beyond doubt.
Take for instance the unfortunate events with Ask.fm Bullying related suicides where seven young people ended their life because of social media bullying.

Ask.fm Suicide Story #1
A 14-year old girl was found hanged in her bedroom after receiving hate messages on her ask.fm page where they told her to cut herself, drink bleach, and kill herself. In this social media platform, the users are allowed to ask questions while remaining anonymous. Although some of the bullies were identified and some even revealed themselves to say sorry, the teenager already took her own life because of ask.fm bullying.

Ask.fm Suicide Story #2
Another young girl took her life after being bullied online. Only 12 years old, the poor girl jumped from the top of a factory located in Florida. She was found dead at the abandoned cement factory one early morning. According to investigations, she endured more than a year of being bullied online. Prior to her body being found, she changed her ask.fm page to “That Dead Girl.”

Ask.fm Suicide Story #3
A 15-year old boy also hanged himself, allegedly because of ask.fm. He was found in Lancashire Village right at his family’s farmhouse dead because of hurtful messages on his page. He was called a freak and was told several times that no one liked him. Some even said that he deserved to have sick things happen to him.

Terrible Suicides caused by bullying:

Amanda Todd:
A pervert leaked a topless photo of Amanda Todd, then a group of girls bullied her until she ended up taking her own life.

In September 2012, this fifteen-year-old Canadian high-schooler posted a nine-minute black-and-white video on YouTube called My Story: Struggling, bullying, suicide and self-harm. She speaks not a word in the video, instead letting her story unfold through a series of flash cards. She tells of how when she was in seventh grade, a male stranger—after much coaxing—convinced her to flash him her naked breasts during a webcam discussion.

A year went by before the same stranger contacted her on Facebook threatening to go public with a topless photo he’d screencapped of her if Amanda refused to perform a live sex show for him on camera. She says she refused, at which point the man sent her topless photo “to everyone.” Amanda claims this sent her spiraling into depression and seeking to blunt the humiliation through alcohol and drugs.

Her family moved her to another school, but the stranger kept stalking her. He opened a fake Facebook account in her name, using her topless photo as the profile picture. This led to taunts from kids at the new school and a new habit for Amanda—self-mutilation.

After being shuttled off to yet another new school, she was tracked down by female bullies from a prior school who beat her up en masse and left her lying in a ditch. After her dad rescued her and brought her home, she tried killing herself by drinking bleach. She was rushed to a hospital and survived.

Her parents moved with her to another new city and another new school, yet her depression persisted. This is the description she posted under her video of September 2012:

I’m struggling to stay in this world, because everything just touches me so deeply. I’m not doing this for attention. I’m doing this to be an inspiration and to show that I can be strong. I did things to myself to make pain go away, because I’d rather hurt myself then someone else. Haters are haters but please don’t hate, although I’m sure I’ll get them. I hope I can show you guys that everyone has a story, and everyones future will be bright one day, you just gotta pull through. I’m still here aren’t I?

Yes, she was still here—although briefly. A month after posting the video, Amanda killed herself.

Jessica Laney:

After posting a compassionate answer on Ask.fm about how suicide is not the answer, Jessica Laney hanged herself.

Like Hannah Smith, this 16-year-old Floridian killed herself after being harassed on Ask.fm.

On Thanksgiving Day, 2012, an anonymous questioner on the site asked Jessica about her opinions on suicide. Her response:

If you ever feel this low i just wanna [say it’s] not your fault. People are mean. I know you feel useless broken not wanted and alone. i was there. But i promise you it will get better….Nothing is worth it; it will all get better.

But things didn’t get better. She fielded hostile comments such as “you have pretty eyes but your fat,” “Can you kill yourself already?” and “Nobody even cares about you.”

About two weeks after Thanksgiving, Laney hanged herself.

Audrie Pott:

After three boys gang-raped her and distributed photos of the crime, Audrie Pott hanged herself with a belt.

At a house party on Labor Day weekend 2012 in the posh-and-privileged California coastal town of Saratoga, police say 15-year-old Audrie Pott fell unconscious after drinking vodka and was sexually assaulted by three boys who subsequently scrawled lewd remarks on her body. They photographed the event and distributed digital photos to local students, where the images “spread like wildfire.”

Tortured by the fact that her gang rape was being treated like reality-TV entertainment, Audrie hanged herself with a belt a week after the house party.

Cora DeLille: After being tormented at school during a time of personal turmoil, Cora DeLille killed herself and wrote a note that said “Thanks for all the pain.”

At the emotionally raw age of 15, this Ohio girl felt despondent about life. She had just broken up with her boyfriend, and the stepfather she’d known all her life had divorced her mother. In a suicide note she left before hanging herself at her family’s home in May of 2014, she named four tormentors from school—two of them her ex-boyfriends—whom she claimed had pushed her to the point where she didn’t want to live anymore. One line in her suicide note stood out above all the others:

Thanks for all the pain.

Nobody's Victim: Fighting Psychos, Stalkers, Pervs and Trolls/Carrie Goldberg (Autor)
'A rallying cry for privacy justice . . . chilling . . . take-no-prisoners and warmly gregarious' New York Times

'We need more warriors like Carrie' Tarana Burke, founder of the MeToo movement

'In the age of doxxing, revenge porn, and misogynist trolls, this book is required reading. . . . In telling these wrenching stories, Goldberg gives voice to the legions who have experienced unthinkable violence' Esquire, Best Books of Summer 2019

Nobody's Victim is an unflinching look at a hidden world most people don't know exists-one of stalking, blackmail, and sexual violence, online and off-and the incredible story of how one lawyer, determined to fight back, turned her own hell into a revolution.

Nobody's Victim invites readers to join Carrie Goldberg on the front lines of the war against sexual violence and privacy violations as her law firm sues the hell out of tech companies, schools, and sexual predators. Her battleground is the courtroom; her crusade is to transform clients from victims into warriors.

In gripping detail, Carrie shares the diabolical ways her clients are attacked and how she, through her unique combination of relentless advocacy, badass risk-taking, and unique client-empowerment, pursues justice for them all. There is the ex-boyfriend who made fake bomb threats in a client's name, causing a national panic; the girl who was sexually assaulted on school grounds and then suspended when she reported the attack; and the guy who used a dating app to send more than 1,200 men to his ex's home and office for sex. Carrie also shares her own shattering story about why she began her work and became the lawyer she needed.

Riveting and essential, Nobody's Victim is a bold and timely analysis of victim protection in the era of the Internet. This book is an urgent warning of a coming crisis, a predictor of imminent danger, and a weapon to take back control and protect ourselves-both online and off.

Rebel in High Heels: True story about the fearless mom who battled-and defeated-the kingpin of revenge porn and the dangerous forces of conformity/Charlotte Laws (Autor)
Rebel in High Heels is a memoir about Dr. Charlotte Laws—“the Erin Brockovich of revenge porn”—who was voted one of the “30 fiercest women in the world.”

She fought a dangerous war against “the most hated man on the Internet” to protect her daughter and other victims. She was bombarded with death threats and computer viruses and targeted by a stalker who appeared at her home.

But who is this woman that MSNBC calls a hero? In addition to detailing her gripping revenge porn fight, this book chronicles the first 22 years of Laws’ life.

Her adoptive mother committed suicide, her little brother was killed, and her father’s only comment was he wished it had been her.

Laws’ first boyfriend was pop idol Tom Jones. She has hobnobbed with the rich and famous. Though not born with VIP access, she taught herself how to gate-crash any event, anywhere, anytime. Rebel in High Heels details Laws’ intriguing—sometimes scandalous—encounters with Bill Cosby and other stars.

At age 20, Laws earned 300k per year as a Las Vegas chip-chatter. She also worked as a bandit cab driver, a backup singer for an Elvis imitator and bodyguard for a prostitute.

Laws—a former Southern California politician and weekly NBC commentator—has appeared on “The Late Show,” Fox News, “Oprah,” “Nightline,” CNN, “Dr. Drew” and “Larry King Live.” She has a Ph.D. in Social Ethics, as well as two Master’s degrees and two BAs. Her articles have been published in The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Jezebel, Salon and the L.A. Daily News.

Rebel in High Heels is mostly about perseverance and looking beyond oneself. It is about fighting for ones dreams, while striving to better the world.

Laws is the little Atlanta girl who could. And did.

“Dr. Charlotte Laws became the ‘Erin Brockovich of revenge porn.’” – CBS News

“Never underestimate a former Buckhead debutante.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“This book is two for the price of one. Rebel in High Heels provides a gripping account of Charlotte Laws’ dangerous battle against revenge porn. But it also details Laws’ roller-coaster early years: dating a superstar, dealing with suicide, hobnobbing with celebrities, fighting racism and being thrust into the glitzy world of ‘sex for sale.’ By following Laws’ bold, life-crashing adventures, the reader learns how to become a rebel and a relentless advocate for victims. This memoir is about persistence, leading an active life and helping others. Laws invents her own recipe for success. She reveals her secrets in this mesmerizing tell-all book, tidbit by tasty tidbit.” — Every Way Woman Show

“I didn’t realize how brave Charlotte Laws is until I see her in action.”—The Guardian

“Charlotte Laws single-handedly dismantled the empire of pure evil that earned Hunter Moore the title of ‘Most Hated Man on the Internet.’” —MSNBC

“Charlotte Laws… a very appropriate last name. Trying to get laws passed in a number of states.” – Fox News

“If you care about women, you need this book. Charlotte Laws is the Erin Brockovich of ‘revenge porn,’ and she will change your life just like she changed mine. Buy this for your daughters, your sisters, your mother and yourself.” — Mandy Stadtmiller, deputy editor, xojane

“Charlotte Laws [is] a prominent anti-revenge porn activist.” –Washington Post

“I am glad that Charlotte is sharing her story in writing this book. It is important that we educate people about revenge porn and the devastating effects on victims.”- Senator Anthony Cannella, California

“When Charlotte gets something in mind, nothing can stop her…She has embarked upon lots of activities in her life but with one purpose: to fight for her beliefs.” – Stylist Magazine

Stop Bullying Now: How To Keep Our Children, Schools, And Communities Safe By Joining The Fight Against Bullying/ Kayla Ponder (Autor)
A very serious topic discussed in this book which needs to be considered on priority by the government of any country. We all know that children and youth are the bright future of a country and if they are demoralized or stressed or have any fear then how will that country progress. Bullying and ragging both are offensive crimes and one should get severely punished. Some spiritual knowledge for children is very important and parents are responsible for teaching some manners and etiquette to their children.
It is true that parents and home are the first teacher and institute of a child. Children are bestowed with love and joy and we should help them to keep them alive.

Haters: Harassment, Abuse, and Violence Online/ Bailey Poland (Autor)
Cybersexism is rampant and can exact an astonishingly high cost. In some cases, the final result is suicide.

Bullying, stalking, and trolling are just the beginning. Extreme examples such as GamerGate get publicized, but otherwise the online abuse of women is largely underreported. Haters combines a history of online sexism with suggestions for solutions.

Using current events and the latest available research into cybersexism, Bailey Poland questions the motivations behind cybersexist activities and explores methods to reduce footprints of Internet misogyny, drawing parallels between online and offline abuse. By exploring the cases of Alyssa Funke, Rehtaeh Parsons, Audrie Pott, Zoe Quinn, Anita Sarkeesian, Brianna Wu, and others, and her personal experiences with sexism, Poland develops a compelling method of combating sexism online.
