Bullying stops here!!!!!

Do you know this girl? Probably not. She has gotten quite a bit of attention since October 10, 2012 tho. Why? Well if you aren't aware, this girl felt she had no other way out,  by committing suicide.  The cause? Excessive bullying.

Even after changing schools multiple times it followed her.

Amanda Todd left a heart felt message on YouTube telling her story a month before she could no longer take it If you haven't seen the video here it is.

This video truly brought tears to my eyes.

The statistics are terrifying.  It's estimated that 500,000 teenagers try to kill themselves every year, and about 5000 succeed.  That's right up there with cancer and homicide. 

I did not know Amanda Todd, yet I look at her and I can easily see any young adult that I come in contact with. Even my own children.

As a parent you want to protect your children. What can you do? You see your baby hurting and no matter what you just can't make the pain go away. 

It is OUR job as parents to advocate for those that can not. To try to prevent this from happening to another child. It is our responsibility to teach our children to embrace each other's differences, and to not ridicule because of flaws and mistakes. Because quite honestly, even tho they are teens and think they have the world by the balls and know everything.... They do not! And they too will make mistakes. 

Bullying is NEVER okay! Words hurt, they cut like a knife right through the soul, and the scars inflicted will always be there. 

We need to make a change now before one of our own children become a victim. We need to advocate to stricter punishment in the schools. A ZERO bully policy. There need to be laws put in place with severe punishment. The warnings and slaps on the wrists just aren't cutting it anymore. 

With Amanda Todd, I have noticed on her memorial page, that even tho she is no longer here, the bullying continues. I see these young people commenting that she deserved it because she showed her breast to a man. It was a man that she thought she could trust. She deserved it because she slept with another girls girlfriend. She was a child that made a mistake and paid the ultimate price because they just couldn't drop the issue.  I see a lot of she is in Hell because she committed suicide. I for one do not believe that for a minute! When it is your time it is your time. That is the way that God brought her home. I have to believe that. I have seen first hand horrible suicide attempts gone wrong. Where the person should have died but didn't.  

I am saddened and outraged. 

Things need to change and they start here!

I got this!!!

Well this week the lovely folks over at Blogger Idol have engineered a new play at home challenge. A day in your life.... as the opposite sex. Heehee so here we go.

I rolled over at 5:25AM this morning to smash the alarm clock against the wall. Who the fuck does it think it is? I have no right getting up at this ungodly hour. I stomp to the bathroom to use the lil" girls room and low and behold I HAVE A PENIS!!! This is friggin awesome I think to myself. I have ALWAYS wanted a penis of my own. I stand in front of the toilet admiring my new appendage. Then it occurs to me..... I have no idea how it works.  I forgo my need to piss to google just how one uses such a thing. But there were no how to videos on YouTube teaching a used to be squatter how to take a proper leak standing up. So I go for it, and let me tell you , that shit is hard. I completely missed my target and hit the ceiling. Thankfully as a used to be vagina owner I know the proper ways to get urine off the wall and ceiling.

Onward to wake the children up to get ready for school. My usual high pitched get the hell up took about 20 minutes to result in them even starting to stir. My man voice, they were out of that bed in 2 seconds flat.

I go to gently wake the Hubby up for work... Let's just say that didn't end well.

I shoo everyone out the door and start on my daily activities.

Shower... check. Spent much longer getting clean than usual. Having a penis and balls sure is different. My regular girly panties didn't fit right. So I went commando.

Somehow no matter what I was doing my hands always found their way into my pants to fondle my new body part.

The older kids get home from school and were pure hell children. Normally punishing them is a giant pain in the ass. But since I now have a dick, they snap to attention like never before.

I feed the kids and it's off to bed.

I fall blissfully asleep holding my newest addition.

"Mom, Mom, WAKE UP!!"

What the fuck?!?! Don't tell me I dreamed all that.....
