Snapping a Shameless Selfie
If you thought bullying was bad when you were younger, you can only imagine how hard some kids have it today with the omnipresence of social media. Cyberbullying has become an international epidemic, with as much as 35% of teens having felt victimized in 2015 according to cyberbullying.org.
This online intimidation doesn’t only affect children and teens, but their families and teachers as well. In fact, if you’ve ever read through the comments section on Facebook or another website, you might have seen that many of the aggressive “trolls” are adults themselves.
With rising suicide rates caused by cyberbullying, what can we do to stop the hate and spread the love instead? These young women, once victims of online body-shaming, have the perfect response.
Grin and bear it.
