I agree that the current generation of teens/kids is definitely being softened, but in no way is it by these "bullying laws".

Of all the potential factors, the parents are the biggest target to point the finger at. They coddle their children, giving them more than they need without enforcing any consequences when behaviour dictates the need to discipline.

The most common tags for this kind of parenting is "Snow Plow Parents" or "Helicopter Parents". These parents clear the way for their children or hover above, making sure that no adversity shall every face their kids.

This includes berating teachers, coaches, and anyone else in a remotely authority-related position, when something doesn't go their kids way. This creates a mindset of "I can do no wrong". When in fact the exact opposite is true. Some kids will go out of their way to make the lives of others absolute **** . This is unacceptable.

Bullies breed bullies. And no amount of "Suck it up and ignore them" will work. Kids are ruthless and relentless.

The focus needs to be turned away from "Bullying laws are stupid" to "How do we prevent parents from ******* up their children?" because that is absolutely the cause for a majority of these issues.

ahh but the parents only pave the way because in this day and age if you do poorly in school you are restricted to a "bad job". i see what your saying though and i agree but its the time period we're in which also is part of the parental problem. i do think though that anti bully campaigns do almost encourage softness in students

Anti-bullying campaigns don't encourage softness. They encourage tolerance and mutual respect. BBBBIIIIIGGGGGG difference there. I'm pretty sure doing poorly in high school may lead some people to a "bad job" but at the same time, many people learn in many different styles, and there's ALWAYS chance for recovery (though many simply give up).

We cannot simply accept that this is happening and just shrug at the "softness".

I remember this one time in school. I was stood behind a group of unsocial pricks (almost geeks, but not intelligent enough). I lit my cigarette with an electric lighter, which makes quite a large click, didn't think anything of it, barely even noticed anybody stood around me.

Two ******* hours later, I got pulled into the headmasters office. Apparently I had intentionally burnt somebody. I was all ''WTF, why would I even do that??' Then they brought the ******** in who said I burnt him. He did actually have a burn type mark on his hand, but I knew I hadn't done it. Nevertheless, he got me in deep **** with the school and my parents.

I was speaking to my friend the next day. She had saw him sat in class, scratching his ******* hand until he got a blister TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE I ******* BURNT HIM. I have rarely even spoken to this guy, and I had never done anything wrong to him, I never bullied anybody. To this day, I don't know why he did it, and it still makes me rage thinking about it. I mean, did he want to get my attention because he liked me? Well it didn't ******* work.
Pic related, it's the asshat.

TLDR; ********* will be ********* .

If my grandfather heard about that, he would punch a hole through the wall.

Damn right, we are raising the next generation to be a bunch of pansy ass bitches. Oh Johnny hurt your feelings? stop being a bitch. Until it gets physical people need to stop being weaklings about every little thing, we have 7 billion people on this earth if Timmy kills himself because Bobby was mean to him well **** Timmy we don't need him.

My school is still pretty tough, we get occasional fights, when teachers see them they let the kids finish, then punish the one who started it. Everyone gets along fine here and no one does suicide, also theres still good education. Wow, it's pretty cool here.
User avatar #18 to #17 - kingchase (09/13/2012) [-]
My school is based off common sense, also it's still public.
User avatar #22 to #18 - ancano ONLINE (09/13/2012) [-]
my school is private and we do that, also we swear at the teachers and they swear at us*
. however if there is a fight both students get punished.

*yeah i know, super hardcore.

And no teen suicides haven't increased because we've made them pussies. There's a number of factors involved.

I do agree that the law is stupid, but there's no need to call our generation pussies just because suicide rates have gone up.
User avatar #5 to #4 - theencyclopedia [OP](09/12/2012) [-]
when did i call our generation pussies?
User avatar #6 to #5 - akinto (09/12/2012) [-]
"it's no wonder teen suicide rates have raised in the past 5 years. kids have been softened so much by these bullying things that they become overly sensitive.
how will they survive in the real world?"

That's the same as calling them pussies
User avatar #7 to #6 - theencyclopedia [OP](09/12/2012) [-]
totally incorrect. and its true. kids are becoming way too sensitive because of schools brainwashing them and telling them that the slightest name calling is worthy of being categorized as bullying.
User avatar #8 to #7 - akinto (09/12/2012) [-]
Name calling usually is bullying, it's all about context. People are just more willing to speak up about it and no longer let it happen. Also kids are probably being bullied more because they're expressing themselves a lot more, I don't think you would have seen many goths or openly gays in school 20 years ago. Kids are no longer willing to conform and be someone they're not to be liked, which is a good thing but it also makes them prone to bullying for being different.
User avatar #9 to #8 - theencyclopedia [OP](09/12/2012) [-]
well if they honestly didnt care whether they were liked like you said they wouldnt be commitiing suicide. bullying has always happened. and frankly, these antibully campaigns have only worsened the situation. if you cant create defense mechanisms for being picked on other than commiting suicide then im sorry but you cannot survive in the real world
User avatar #10 to #9 - akinto (09/13/2012) [-]
I never said they didn't care if they were liked, they just don't want to pretend to be someone else to be liked. You're basically blaming the victim, it's all about mutual respect, teens need to learn to respect one instead of bully others for being different.

Don't get me wrong, some of these anti-bullying laws are just ridiculous, school kim jongistrators should just keep an eye on the damn kids instead of having a law to stop it. In my day, you were sent into the principal's office, got detention or your parents were called.

I don't really think the kids are the problem but the kim jongistrators, usually bullying happens in the school halls, why aren't there any ppl there to keep an eye on things and stop it from happening
User avatar #11 to #10 - theencyclopedia [OP](09/13/2012) [-]
because it happens and its a part of life kids need to learn to deal with. if school environment was completely controlled imagine how they would react when they're out of school. you learn as much about coping with practical obstacles in school as much as you do about solving problems and learning
User avatar #15 to #11 - akinto (09/13/2012) [-]
It happens: yes, should it happen: no

Should things be done about it and should you stop blaming the victims? Definitely.

That's my opinion and no matter what you say, you're not going to change it, so this conversation is going to be pretty much a standstill.

Let's just agree to disagree and be done with it.
User avatar #16 to #15 - theencyclopedia [OP](09/13/2012) [-]
ok i have no problem with that but i think you and alot of other people need to open your eyes to see the real problem
User avatar #19 to #16 - akinto (09/13/2012) [-]
The real problem is bullies and strong ppl who expect to either break or strengthen others by bullying. Not victims who are sensitive to bullying.

So you're the one who should open your eyes not me.

(And also you might have noticed that I didn't put any effort in thumbing down any of your comments while you thumbed down every single one of mine. I wonder what that says about you)
User avatar #20 to #19 - theencyclopedia [OP](09/13/2012) [-]
actually i didnt thumb down ur comments....? there are other people besides me who know your wrong in case you didnt realize soooo...

The fact that you think the real world is harder than high school makes me think you're a moron.

In the real world you get to pick where you go, who is there and the level of discomfort you can handle in any given situation. In high school you can't do any of that, you are stuck, almost completely unable to escape your sad existence.
User avatar #28 - spikethepony (09/13/2012) [-]
The solution to this is simple: similar to a species of animal, society evolves based on what happens to the individual members. When the weaklings hit the real world, they all crack under pressure and kill themselves, thus purging their weakness from society.
#37 to #28 - mariogomez (09/13/2012) [-]
That is great, except for the fact we need capable to be able to compete with other none western nations. If so few of us become strong willed, we will never be able to stack up against the likes of China and India, where they seriously get beaten in school.

Whenever you get in trouble at school, say the principal/teacher was offending you by telling you off, by law they have to get in trouble or something.
