We Should ALL Against Bullying. by Newgrounds-People We Should ALL Against Bullying. by Newgrounds-People
I am of the opinion that by being alive, you should automatically be against it. Why do we have to get selective. There should be no difference between gay and straight and trans and pan, but I feel like if we keep making separate banners for them, then we are encouraging separate thinking.

I might just be insane, but I think that we need to stop empowering those who discriminate by splitting each other up into groups.

Humans should love humans. End of story.

I am against bullying of any kind against any kind of people. But from what I am seeing in this "spirit day" it makes me think that people are saying unless you think it is OK for people to be anything other than heterosexual, you are an inhumane monster.
I think that people have a really twisted idea of what Christianity is supposed to be, even Christians themselves. I myself am a christian. If this was not the internet I would not have even bothered. I would only talk about this irl if i was in a group of close friends and the topic was brought up by someone else. But this is the internet and this only takes a matter of seconds for me to type.
As a christian with who still goes by the bible I get a lot of hate from people because I believe that marrying(even for believing that only married people should have sex gets me looks of discrimination from people)
a person is supposed to be one man and one woman and not two men or two women or two men and a woman or whatever other combination is out there.
Now you don't see people bullying Christians nearly as badly even fractionally as bad as the group focused on in spirit day, In the US.
But just ignore all that up there and here is what I really want to say. I won't bully you, I won't harass you, I won't discriminate against you. No matter who you are or what you do. Now I ask that you do the same. Not just to your friends or friends of friends. To people you don't even know. I don't ask that you show respect where it hasn't been earned but to show civility. Even when you and they can't agree upon different ideas, values, beliefs, lifestyles, anything at all! No one should be made to feel any lesser because they might have a different mindset, not just one group of people, but all people.

I'm a little perplexed as to why "straight" is the only one to be affixed with the term "ally". Bullying happens to heterosexual individuals too.

I think it's just because Spirit Day is specifically focusing on the bullying of the LGBT community, which is huge.

All bullying is equally awful, though, and really does happen to anyone :(

I suppose, but it strikes me as odd that "Parent" and "Grandparent" don't have a tag added to them. I think the message of Spirit Day then is the one I take issue with. I agree that bullying is very wide-spread in the LGBT community, but if the message is constantly to stop bullying them only, then it should be specific. This is a petty gripe, I understand, but I'm a heterosexual female who was bullied most of her life. If Spirit Day doesn't really include me in the message, that I'm merely an ally to be against the bullying of the LGBT community, then the main page should just say so.

Yeah, and meanwhile, I'm a pansexual female who hasn't run into any direct bullying at all. (Not like everyone I know knows or cares, but still)

Not that I disagree, because really, I don't, but there are a lot of kids who are in general nice that are mean to the LGBT community. (My sister was like that, for awhile.) It's just a more... specific problem. Easier to target. Bullying itself is a very wide topic. I think most people are very focused on finding the alleged 'reasons' for bullying, and target those. Anyway, I agree, there should be a pure anti-bullying day. (Write Love On Her Arms Day kinda fits.)

I'm guessing that Spirit Day is more of an offshoot of LGBT acceptance propaganda than it is an anti-bullying thing, though the two are related.

Well, I care. I think it's good that we can be open about who we are, regardless of what others might think. =]

I understand what you're saying, really, I do. I just don't like being called a "straight ally" against bullying when I'm just straight and against bullying. I still don't see why this artist couldn't just write "I am straight and against bullying" - it doesn't change who the bullying is against or the message of Spirit Day. I suppose it's a petty gripe in the grand scheme of things, but it makes the heterosexual individual on this array of posters the outsider, the "different" one, the one who doesn't belong in this stand against bullying. Isn't that counter-intuitive to the whole message? =\

what is pansexual?

Someone who is sexually attracted to someone regardless of their gender. Different from bisexual, as bi people (by definition) can be attracted to males and to females, where pansexual people can be attracted to males, females, intersex individuals, trans individuals, whatever.
