Bullying in Schools

I have just watched a video on youtube about bullying in schools and the impact it has.  This is a very real problem that needs to be sorted now.  In fact now is not soon enough.

People like Jamey Rodemeyer, Justin Aaberg & Seth Walsh to name just a few killed themselves because of bullying in school that they couldn't take anymore.  I was bullied in school but nowhere near as bad as these guys but trust me suicide crossed my mind on many occasions.  I was just what I called "To Weak" to do it, I didn't have the guts to inflict pain.

Even after school, after the bullying had stopped and things were looking up I was still suffering from the effects of the bullying.  The scars never left and the depression was always there, it just took the tiniest little thing to upset me.

It wasn't in fact until I was in my 20's that I took an overdose in an attempt to finally end it all, one of my friends however took me to hospital and I was fine.  I may now be on anti-depressants but life is so much better.  Working full time where my colleagues are my best friends and family, working for a company that usually cares about it's staff.

Ronans Escape

I have just come across this video, it is really upsetting.  It is about a young boy who gets bullied at school until he cant take any more.  The video doesn't explain why he was being bullied but in the end it doesn't matter.  Bullying should STOP no matter what the reason, whether it be homophobic, racist or just people being cruel.

In my opinion the title is very misleading, I wouldn't call it an escape so much as a tragedy.  All though this is made up this sort of thing happens in real life every day and yet so many of us are ignoring it and letting it continue.

I am asking you now, please do anything you can to help these people and get the message out there that bullying will not be tolerated.

Jack Frew killed by friend

I was watching the news last night and seen something that shocked me, back in May 2010, 16 year old Jack Frew was stabbed and killed in the neck and body by a boy called Craig Roy but despite admitting to stabbing Jack Frew Mr Roy denies murder.  I fail to understand how someone can admit stabbing a person yet deny their murder.  After committing the attack Mr Roy phoned his partner Christopher Hannah who went to the scene and found Craig Roy covered in blood with a knife in his hand.  The first thing Mr Hannah done when arriving at the scene was to check that Mr Roy was alright before going over to Jack Frew to find him lying on the ground covered in his own blood.  Mr Hannah said he then tried to take Jack's Frew's pulse and realised that he had passed away.

At this point Mr Hannah claims he "freaked out" for about five minutes before calling the police and an ambulance as well as Mr Roy's mother as he felt he needed an adult.  Earlier on in the trial Mr Hannah told the court that Jack Frew was also homosexual and said that they all used to meet up with friends at the skate park in East Kilbride.

I was horrified when I seen this, partly because this took place in Scotland which is where I live and this was the first I had heard of it two years after it actually happened.  Okay East Kilbride is about a three and a half hour drive from where I live but I struggle to believe I never heard of this before.  However I was mostly horrified by the loss of such a young guy described by his head teacher as "A committed and conscientious young man on the brink of a bright future".

Any loss of life is tragic but for such a young man with his whole life ahead of him to have been killed in this manner is truly upsetting.  My heart goes out to all of his friends and family and I really hope that Mr Roy is brought to justice.

Below I have provided some links to youtube videos  that I think are worth watching, starting with news clips then moving onto video's of him and his friends having a laugh that are nice to see but it really shows you just how nice and well loved by his friends this young man was and how tragic the events of May 2010 where.

Don't Stand for Homophobic Bullying

I was recently browsing forums on queerattitude, when I seen one about this video. It's an Irish video about standing up against homophobic bullying. It is a really good video that is very moving. In my opinion the more people that see this the better.  I love how at the end they all stand up at the end holding hands showing support for their LGBT classmates.

Gay Teens, What we go through...

I was just brwosing youtube as I regularly do and I came across this video, I watched it a couple of times and have to admit I was upset by it.  There are a lot of people on youtube commenting saying that it is a fake but I don't think it is.  However as a lot of people have said even if it is a fake then fair play to the boy for being so convincing and for the message that his video has put across.

This video got to me as everything that he is describing that he is going through was exactly what I went through when I was younger.  Now i'm out to a large majority of the people I know and I am much happier, I will admit there have been a few things getting to me recently but it's nothing compared to what I and millions of others went through and continue to go through as gay teens struggling to come to terms with there sexuality.

People going through this need someone to talk to so if you are going through this please speak to someone, if you don't want to speak to someone you know then speak to people on gay forums such as or or you can always email me at

If you know someone who you think is going through this then please be there for them.

Thank You
