Ethical And Unethical Behaviour

(Sarah Zia, )

Bullying means unwanted and aggressive behavior among kids, adults. It includes power imbalance such as: making threats, attacking someone physically or verbally and spreading rumors. It is so common these days that every place contains at least 1 bully, which is so not ethical. Kids use their power/popularity/strength to torture weak ones. It is a way to satisfy their ego. Anyone can be target of bullying even kids who excel in school are popular and participates in sports. But those who are strong fight back.
Usually kids get bullied because they get attention of other kids which can be threat to the popular ones. Some of them get bullied because of their race or ethnicity, disability/illness, sexual orientation. These are some causes of bullying. Most common cause of bullying is physical appearance.

Bullying can effect negatively on a victim including a damaged self-esteem, loss of confidence and it can also to extreme levels which can cause victim to commit suicide.
Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among young people, resulting 4400 deaths per year according to center for disease control. Over 14% of high school students have considered suicide and almost 7% of them have attempted it. Bully victims are between 2-9 times have considered suicide. 10-14 year old girls are at higher risk for suicide according to studies.

Bully-related suicides can be connected to any type of bullying, including physical bullying, emotional bullying, cyber bullying, sexting or circulating suggestive or nude photos or messages

I myself have experienced bullying in my life due to physical appearance. People used to bully me because I am short. It affected me so bad that I’ve lost all the self-confidence and started to hate myself. I got depressed and it was so bad that I wanted to run away from humans. The only people that were good in my life were my family instead of bullying me they motivated me and help me lift up myself. And because of their good words I started to love myself and built all the confidence again.

It can be difficult to show up courage and step in or report to teacher when you see a popular kid bullying. And it is an ethical way. But it is not the only solution if you can’t go to the teacher to report about the situation you can go to the parents of the kid who’s being bullied because they might go to teachers and complain about it. Because many parents and teachers and students learn the dangers of bullying and may reach out to help students who are at high risk of committing suicide.

We cannot live peacefully if we keep making others feel bad about the things they are not responsible for. Try to accept more. Break your fansticized beauty standards for others. Let people be confident in whatever and whoever they are.
