Top Ten Reasons Why Bullying is Bad

The Top Ten Reasons Why Bullying is Bad

1 A lot of kids commit suicide because of bullying

Yeah this is sad, happened with one student in my school in grade 12, it was really sad to find out - trains45

To the one who claimed that bullying doesn't exist:

"You're a big a fat liar who's blind in the head. If you think bullying doesn't exist, you try being antagonized like crazy and see how you feel.

Also, all people can overreact all they want. If you go around imposing your will on others by insisting that they accept overly harsh criticism, they'll turn against you.

So screw off and leave bully haters alone! "

I feel very sad and very sorry to hear about anyone committing suicide. Especially that no one knows what that person has been going through. Bullying is never the answer. Suicide is NOT a FKN joke. There are people out there like suicide hotline, counselors, your doctors, etc as well as your loved ones can help you, and always be there for you though thick and thin. No matter what you have been going through in life, BE STRONG! Suicide is never the answer.

Yes because people try to hurt people's feelings just to be mean not even knowing what their going through at home. - 23windomt

2 It can mess up your academic health

No one deserves to have their academic health messed up at all. Everyone deserves better!

Your academic health is clapped

I do not like that

Yes true it sure can - trains45

3 It makes people hate you

At my school its different because the bully has friends and cousins that stand up for the bully and they all bully the victim. It's sad. But I stand up for myself all the time. - 23windomt

I am glad this list was made! Bullying is a BIG issue that needs to end! I strongly agree! - Jake09

Duh! Off course it's true.

I hate when people gang up person doing whatever it takes to drag you down

4 The victim's physical, mental, social, and emotional health can decrease

Yeah mine has when I got bullied, my stress levels went up - trains45

It could effect your life

Eversince being bullied by a mass of my former year mates at elememtary school for years, I'm still traumatized from it and I don't wanna talk to anyone about it. It terrifies me - MLPFan

5 Bullying is immature

People be saying that " They're just having fun." but know dang well that victim doesn't feel the same way. - 23windomt

If you bully, then you got no manners.

I think bullying is a mean thing to do.

People think it is cool to bully, it really isn't

6 It lowers the victim's self-esteem

Not only that but also can make them have a higher chance of committing suicide or getting depression

Lemme tell all the younger kids what self-esteem is. Its basically your confidence. Its not very nice!

Very true - DarkBoi-X

Not good!

7 You could get arrested

Then good luck for those bullies if they're trying to get away with bullying others because bullies should NEVER pick on anyone in the first place. And I'm very glad that bullies can get arrested for being mean spirited.

I don't think kids get arrested for bullying...

Yeah you could if you keep doing it - trains45

That's not fair

8 It could lead to the victim harming themselves

Bullying is very bad! One thing I hate is FAKE FRIENDS! They talk about you behind your back and they spread rumors, its bad

People need to learn self harm does nothing. - DarkBoi-X

Yeah this can, I have heard of it happening - trains45


9 The victim can become a murderer

This might sound extreme, but unfortunately, its actually true. For example, many of the most well-known serial killers are noted to have a rather terrible social experience during their childhood, with bullying being an example. Bullying does cause an individual to develop anti-social traits, which can morph into nihilism if taken too far. Psychopaths are usually nihilists seeing as they are unable to relate or bring in any genuine interest and care to anyone or anything in general.

This may also extend to a few school shooting. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were noted to have been bullied during their time in high school, which may have contributed to their decision to shoot up their school. Nikolas Cruz, who was responsible for the Stoneman Douglas Shooting was also bullied by students of his school,and by his younger brother.

This is not a comment about sympathizing with these people, but rather a display of what bullying could do to people. There is a side just as ...more - CrimsonShark

Bullying is how School Shootings start - 23windomt

Columbine shooters were bullied. - DarkBoi-X

I agree brother

10 The victim could always get revenge

You can get kill

The victim stream snipes you and finds you in the same game and 1 taps you with a hand cannon and you hit a 9 with a pump.

Your mom gay lol...

Pumped up kicks. - Userguy44

11 You could end up being the victim of bullies yourself

I have before it was the worst to deal with, made me afraid to go to school as well and in my class or bus if they were there - trains45

Karma is real - MLPFan

Lets go


12 You don't know if the victim is planning to kill you

Cause he's bush camping in the corner of a house and kills you when you have 36 kills!


13 You could lose people's trust

Sorry, but this is quite true!

If somebody drags you down, it reveals his / her uncaring personality. If he continues he / she will never have meaningful relationship with people.

The bully will never be a trusted again.

14 You can set a bad example

Yes it can set a bad example for little kids and stuff - trains45

Bullies are terrible role models to everyone!

I think this is amazing
The showed me a lot of what I can do to the young ones just from a little bullying

Can make others to grow up to be a bully
To be mean

15 In very extreme cases, the victims just die from low self esteem

Extremely rare, but, has happened. - clusium

Yeah :(

16 It makes the victim hate themselves and want to hurt themselves.

Yeah it sure does that why some had hate themselves and stuff - trains45

This is very true. I have lived through this and it hurts. Bullying is NOT a FKN joke. It can lead many people to do some stupid shiz. I know this.

I agree it can hurt someone else

17 Bullying can cause self harm to the victim

This so true this one girl killed herself but the bullies didn't care

That is very sad and also very depressing, especially when you never know what that person has been going through. 😢

18 It affects others around you

It might scare others too.

19 The victim can become mentally insane

Which is very sad.

20 Destroys self-image

This makes the victims feel unsatisfied with the way how they look.
The most common ones are:
- Body shape
- Skin colour
- Height
- Their face (e.g. Pimples, scars, etc)
- Hair Colour (e.g. Stereotyping Blondes; though I don't want to mention the stereotypes of Blondes, etc)

21 It hurts people's feelings

Right! - 23windomt

22 Bullying affects the parents at home

Yes because bullied kids start getting Mad at their parents when they ask them whats wrong. - 23windomt

I'm a father of a bullied child who is very crippling depressed

I'm adopted

Every parents worry about their own children getting bullied. 😢

23 It's mean spirited

That's true. People don't know how others feel.

24 Bullies pick on children

That's child abuse.

25 It causes school shootings

It's sad and scary but it's true it cause victim to go crazy or psycho if people think bullying fun you may get shot for it

Which is very scary!

ThatIntrovertedEmo True. I agree with you.

This makes me feel very sorry for Nikolas Cruz and other school shooters. 😢

Yeah, but bullying isn't an excuse for ending other innocent people's lives. - ThatIntrovertedEmo

26 Bullies promote bad behaviour

And sets bad example too.

27 Might cause the person to bully others
