RIP Amanda Todd

October 14, 2012

Trigger warning for pictures of self harm at the end, and discussion of suicide and bullying and feeling alone

We are too triggered to write anything more about this right now and we don’t know too many details, but this needs to be seen, and blogged about extensively.

NOTE: COMMENTS THAT ATTACK THE CHARACTER OF THIS VICTIM WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

BULLYING IS NEVER OKAY. PERIOD.

Amanda Todd’s chilling message about bullying

  1. So if I understand this correctly, a man and some asshole who most likely* is also a man victimized a young woman, and apparently induced others to support the idea of blaming her rather than the guy who decided to cheat.

    *Over 90% of sex offenders are men. Probably closer to 98%.

    Based on this, the young woman killed herself. Her body, so her call.

    Now, that she felt suicide was the correct call, that’s a problem. Societal supports failed miserably and the men involved are a disgrace to all of us. On behalf of my gender, I’m sorry we undermined Ms. Todd’s life.

    Rest well, Ms. Todd.


    • C7- yes, and apparently the schools really didn’t do anything much about it. The real problem here is that her stalker was able to track her down every time she moved. Dangers of internet. Parents should monitor their teens more closely, and when another parent comes to them about problems with bullying caused by their children, they need to take it seriously.

      • True. Stalkers are a problem & privacy protections are a good thing. I know my mother took bullying rather seriously, so I’m probably privileged that way.
