I know someone who was bullied by her classmates just because she was the best student. She didn’t brag about it, just simply had good grades and was smart. I think what children hear at home and from media is what has the biggest influence in this case. If you blend into society – you’re all fine. If you’re in some way different – now you have a problem. With this example I wanted to show that you don’t necessarily have to be of different orientation or skin color for people to treat you like there’s something wrong with you.
