Bullying is an awful thing and it stems from people not respecting others for who they are. Both boys and girls who are different still face ridicule for just choosing to be who they are and who they want to be. Kids who do the bullying come from a perspective that if something is different, it is bad. There seems to disconnect from those who suffer and those who can help them with the fear and rejection they experience so unfortunate and violent situations can be avoided. Just because one is rejected doesn’t make them a bad person. When it comes down to it its a matter of respect.
