Watch as Ellen DeGeneres advocates for a campaign to change the rating of Bully, a new documentary about bullying, from R to PG-13 so that kids will be able to watch it in school. More than 200,000 people have signed a petition asking the MPAA to change the rating. Sign the petition - this film needs to be seen, especially by kids. More

Hey, look at that, someone recorded the whole show. Only reposting because, um, high quality for the win! Oh my god you can hear my voice crack so hard in the last chorus. Sh I never said I was good.

Rachel Piette, Park HS homecoming talent show, 21 September 2011

In high school, it’s so easy to feel left outalone, or ridiculed for who you are. If you ask me, that’s bullshit, but it’s a sad truth in life.

If you can learn to overcome the people that make you feel like nothing, you’ve got the world in your hands.

My name is Rachel Piette. I am pansexual.

I came out to my school singing this song because I don’t want to hide who I am for fear of being ridiculed or teased or bullied. I love myself, and that’s all that matters, at the end of the day.

I didn’t do this performance for me, though.

I did it for the shy kid in the back of your math class who’s too afraid to talk to anyone.

I did it for the big girl who is afraid to eat lunch at school.

I did it for the nerd who is called names and bullied because they ask questions in class.

I did it for the girl who wears too much makeup to feel pretty.

Or the girl who hides the cuts on her arms with long sleeves and bracelets.

I did it for the boy in the locker room who can’t even get dressed for gym because he’s gay and the other guys don’t want to “catch it”.

I did this for all of you. Because if there’s one kid that feels this way at my school, I want them to know it’s okay to be themselves. It’s okay to stand out and be different. There will be people in your life that support you. Could be people you know, could be a complete stranger you pass in the hallways every day. No one should feel like they’re not important.

Because you all matter, you’re all beautiful, no matter what your flaws may be.

Your flaws and differences make you beautiful, baby, so hold that head up and keep walking. <3

+ Rest In Peace, Jamey Rodemeyer.

jalenwashere:

Jamey was only 14 years old before he took his own life on this past Sunday. Do you want to know why he killed himself?

Because he was different. That’s it.

This young boy, not even really experienced with what life really has to offer, was in so much pain that he thought the only way out was to take his own life.

Bullying. People. Kids. They all bullied him and no one listened. No one listened and it makes me sick to my stomach.

There are states who continue to think that bullying is NOT a major issue. 

I think this is completely unacceptable. I think people need to realize that bullying is a serious issue. Jamey was so alone and so hopeless that he committed suicide. Friends and family are left to ponder what they did wrong. Countless other teens are dealing with this same issue.

Fag. Whore. Bitch. Retard. Fat. Slut. Gay. Stupid. Not good enough. Tramp.

Those words are thrown at some kids every day of their lives. Every day. 

But there are still those few lawmakers who consider bullying as a “minute problem.”

Jamey didn’t think it was a minute problem.

Tyler Clementi didn’t think it was a minute problem.

Tell that to the mourning family. Tell them to their faces that bullying is not a big deal.

“No, Mr. and Mrs. Rodemeyer, bullying was not the reason for your son’s death. He just killed himself for attention.”

Find me the logic there. Find me some logic. Please.

Rest in peace, Jamey.

Rest in peace to everyone who is affected by suicide daily.

Rest in peace to all of us who aren’t good enough; to all of us who are called names and picked on simply for who we are.

Don’t expect help. The lawmakers of our generation don’t fucking care.

Because to them, bullying is a fantasy.

But they are bullying all of us.

R. I. P.
