Many people know that in high school countless people are bullied. From the brainiacs to the somewhat overweight. But the homosexual students tend to usually get a rather rough time as well. Many people don’t comprehend just what it is like to be a homosexual, hormonal, teenager in high school. There are so many slang terms that get thrown out, as well as just general pain and torment. Tagged lockers, being shoved, dumped in trash cans, tripped; it’s hard for any student. People will throw out words while driving by in cars, just to get attention, but not have to face the consequences if the other fights back.
The hit musical TV show Glee, shown on Fox, portrays bullying on homosexuals very well. The young student Kurt is often times bullied. He even has his life threatened. Without spoiling the show, it would be hard to explain it all, but Glee does a fantastic job at trying to show the bullying, as well as how to solve it.
Bullying is a serious issue, parents. Not just for homosexuals, but in general. If your child starts to act weird (such as secluding themselves or even just talking in a different, odd manor), it would be best to act quickly. Find out what is bothering them, and don’t take no for an answer. And if the student is being bullied, it would be best to solve the issue.
Solve it before someone is hurt, or even worse, killed.
