Don't like watching that whole vid had to skim threw it to sad. The only thing this kid can do is stand up for him self.

How do you know he is gay?

He said he was bullied from the first grade.

Agreed. This comes off as attention seeking. 1 minute can't cope, the next all the reasons in the world to trudge on. Granted he's a kid and we, presumably, don't know the entire situation. Hey kid, life sucks and you are the one who can change it. Sounds like you have

Millions of adults are bullied on a day by day basis by managers and must endure this for years.

My job was outsourced to India over a year ago (thank god) and I still nightmare about the 16 years I worked under various bullies.

Now, in addition to bullying is mobbing............you see when you are picked as "the target" everyone else goes along in order not to get picked on them self.

Excellent book, highly recommend. "Mobbing: Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace" by Noa Davenport, Ruth D. Schwartz and Gail Pursell Elliott

Humans absolutely baffle me, when any two humans encounter each other they always have to decide who will be the dominant one...............why can't everyone just play nice?

The concept of enjoying power over another or causing someone or some other entity pain is totally foreign to me.



And little bullies end up growing up to be big bullies and produce more bullies.

I've seen kid bullies and than seen their parents.............the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

I once tried to kiss my best friend in kindergarten. Didn't know that was gay back then, and when I found that out that memory worked its way into my "repressed" folder.

So...yeah. That's how.

[edit] by the way I'm not that kid, but I've been in his position.

My understanding is that a large number of gay people know from a very early age. I was getting crushes on girls in first grade, probably the same thing.

a search of Jonah Mowry's name doesn't lead to any threads so I'll post here AND the other thread!

The internet and sharing of ourselves is an amazing opportunity that I didn't have as a kid. I'm happy this boy knows the deal and is able to share. I hope millions of kids see his presentation and hang in there for another day...
