Bullying is a form of intimidation that allows the bully to exert his or her superiority over another who is perceived as the weaker vessel with the intent to manipulate, control, or create fear. In today’s society, bullying is not limited to the school yard fight or social media, it’s given an agenda, and it has a platform. It can come in the form of a media outlet, certain interests, or ideology. Bullying breathes an atmosphere of fear. Don’t be the silent spectator, recognize it, and speak up when, and if, necessary. Bullying is a cowardly despicable act regardless of how and who it’s presented by. Bullying, it’s real. To promote, encourage, or condone bullying blurs the line between the bully and the spectator.
