    Anti-Bullying is the New Bullying

    10/16/12
    By Daniel Greenfield

    ---

    In Canada, Laurel Broten, Ontario’s Minister of Education announced that Catholic schools could not teach that abortion was wrong under anti-bullying doctrines.

    We do not allow and we’re very clear with the passage of Bill 13 that Catholic teachings cannot be taught in our schools that violates human rights and which brings a lack of acceptance to participation in schools…

    Bill 13 has in it a clear indication of ensuring that our schools are safe, accepting places for all our students. That includes of LGBTQ students. That includes young girls in our school. Bill 13 is about tackling misogyny, taking away a woman’s right to choose could arguably be one of the most misogynistic actions that one could take


    What is Bill 13?

    Passed in June, Bill 13 was formulated in response to a series of teen suicides by students who were victims of bullying from their peers. It requires schools to provide “a positive school climate that is inclusive and accepting, regardless of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status or disability”. The act specifically mandates that schools – Catholic Separate Schools included – establish “gay-straight alliance” organizations be available where requested

    Some forms of religion think that homosexuality is just fine. Others that are biblically minded think it’s a sin. In a free country, both sides get to teach their religion to their children. In an unfree country, one side gets to teach their religion and the other side has its religion banned.

    Naturally none of this applies to Muslims. Because when freedom of religion goes away, then the only people who get to teach their religions are those who impose their way by force, whether it’s deceptively through anti-bullying measures or openly through violence.

    While I'm anti-bullying, I'm also "pro-retaliation".

    Well....a friend of my daughter's....his name was Brandon Bitner(Google him) was bullied for being feminine......to the point that he hiked miles to the nearest highway and threw himself in front of a tractor trailer.

    So, yeah....I'm against it. Doesn't surprise me that a Conservative would be for it though.....they seem to be very cool with the powerful oppressing the weak.

    Really? You guys love to play the victim, don't you? Call someone an "N" word and someone calls you out on it? They're the racist. Bully some kid relentlessly? The people who think it's wrong and stand up to it are the bullies.

    Just shows what kind of pussies you guys are. You're all tough when your opposition is weaker and you would pound that weaker person into the ground. but let someone stand up to you and you can't take it, so you bawl to mommy.

    This is in Canada, not here.

    Bulling is wrong ... but so is redefining bullying to include every little thing. Teasing or name calling (not relentlessly but normal stuff that kids do) isn't bullying. Some over weight weather woman boo hooed on tv because a viewer wrote in and told her she was a bad role model because she was obese. Was he rude? Sure. But she claimed it to be bullying, which it most certainly was not.
