The second one is VERY important; *** being ostracized is more mentally damaging than being bullied. ***

Don’t know how many ways I can say this; being told “go away”, ignored completely when you speak, being chosen last for teams all say “you are worthless to us”

Kids think they are being nicer by not picking on someone that annoys them, and they are right. However, at least when a child is being picked on, however horribly, it means their existence has been noticed and has caused a reaction.

The cool kids hate it when the teachers pick the teams or assign students to work together in group. The ostracized kids are always relieved (of course by this point many would rather work alone after years of being rebuffed). 

We need to teach our children not only to not bully and belittle, but to also be inclusive; to respond in some sort of non-negative way to kids they would rather ignore. It’s not easy, but being told by a peer that they are worthy of positive notice could improve - and maybe even save - a life.

Taylor Swift on Emma Watson’s UN speech and (last 2 gifs) on not “acting up” like Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears (x)

#i saw this your fave is problematic post #like does real life development not mean anything to you all look at this woman #crushing all of the backwards things she was ingrained to believe in and redefining herself #k get a life if you hate her so much just ignore her! #because ignoring this turnaround is super sexist and gross bye! #patron saint #she’s aware of her public platform and how she’s misused it in the past and is now crusading to make sure it doesn’t happen again like badass (x)

Emma Watson defines what a feminist is and suddenly everyone’s on board

wow the first gif really poor thing she’s been through a lot…instead of doing something actually supportive or constructive she’s milking it for her own sob story…shut up and go write some sappy song alrdy
