"The Geek in the Pink" standing up for Pink Shirt Day

Today is Pink Shirt day! For those of you that are not aware Pink shirt day is a RL movement to stop bullying. More information about the RL movement can be found at the following sites.
Stop Bullying Now!

Whether it be in cyber space or in RL, bulling is hurtful and damaging to one's self esteem. Personally I can't stand to see groups of intelligent people I respect tearing one another apart. We forget that we are a community and should be supportive of one another. We each have different personalities, strengths and weakness. We should learn to become more tolerant, loving and caring of one another. By utilizing our unique perspective and outlook on SL; we are able to build a stronger bonds within our little community. Just think of the resources we could pull together instead of using negative energy to tear one another apart. We're all adults and should take the time to reflect upon that before we speak badly about another person.

As someone that has been the subject of bully attacks in the past I can defiantly say it caused me unnecessary stress. Just because the method of bullying is virtual/cyber doesn't mean the emotional pain is lessened nor does it mean that it is acceptable. I've walked away from my computer at times with tears streaming down my face. The effect of the bullying didn't just stop at my computer but carried on to other areas of my RL as well. For some of us leaving the virtual world drama behind is a little more difficult and attacks made against personal decisions or aspects of your RL can cause emotional distress and real pain.

Please stop by participating stores on this list and take part of Pink Shirt day. Together we can help to stop bullying by stand up next another, speaking out for one another and not spreading or feeding into the bullying mentality.
