The purpose, the very reason why this site even exists is to combat bullying. Ideally our goal is to stop bullying, not only in the US but in the world altogether. You might be asking, why do we even care? Well the answer is simple: because bullying is an inherently negative activity. Not only doesn’t this make sense emotionally or logically, it doesn’t even make sense logically. Sit down and consider this: a group of people is bullying an individual to the point where they’re willing to commit suicide. This simply doesn’t make sense. How long would the bullying have had to continue for them to reach that conclusion? What method of bullying would they have done? What state of mind does the victim have to be in for this to be the “logical” course of action? Not once did they consider that they had something else better to do? That this might not be the best course of action to take against another living, breathing, feeling human being? This is the issue with bullying in general: even with all the harm it causes, people still engage in it…why? That’s what I intend to address with this website, not just “why” but ways to truly address and combat it as well.
I’ll be straight with you. There are plenty of anti-bullying websites and anti-bullying platforms across the globe. Our inclusion among these is nothing more than pouring a bucket of water into an ocean. However what defines us, and ultimately separates us from other sites, is our approach. We want to approach bullying from a logical standpoint, not just the moral and emotional implications behind the action. This intent is reflected in the articles that are posted on this site; for example, one article has you look at plastic surgery and consider whether or not undergoing the operation is an act of submission or defiance. Therefore while we may just be another body of water in a pool, we’re that red body of water (to match our logo!)…we’ll stand out. If you are looking for someone to simply tell you what to do and for you to blindly follow, then this site might not be for you. Above all else we want to engage readers through articles that are close to their everyday lives.
If this and other anti-bullying platforms gain momentum, our hope is to have an anti-bully law passed that impacts the nation. Recently we have smaller districts and states pass anti-bully laws, but that isn’t enough. Imagine a family who recently lost their child due to suicide inspired from bullying: to think that their family would have been spared the tragedy if they simply lived elsewhere is ridiculous. Let’s make sure that everyone is educated about this issue and that everyone does their part to remove bullying off the map.
