Young people give their thoughts on the bullying culture in Malaysia.
KIDS feeling depressed after being bullied is nothing new. Kids slashing their arms and drinking pesticide? Now that’s serious stuff.
In just the past week, one 15year-old school boy cut his arm with a paper cutter after a classmate allegedly bullied him by cutting his hair, while another 13year-old bullying victim took his life by consuming pesticide. And those are just the major incidents that made headlines.
That’s exactly why we here at R.AGE launched our R.AGE Against Bullying campaign (RAGEAgainstBullying. com) campaign last year, to bring awareness to this dark culture that still exists in our schools, workplaces, neighbourhoods and, of course, social media.
But enough from us. We wanted to know what the Gen-Y thinks about bullying in Malaysia, and how they believe the problem needs to be tackled.
