Transcript of Bullying Timeline
How Bullying has changed through the decades
In the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, students never really had the opportunity to ask and receive help from adults or teachers because most adults didn't fully understand what was going on. People in this time period were generally less accepting of people who didn't go along with what everyone else was doing. For example, coming out as gay would mean you were an outcast, and abnormal. The most common type of bullying was fistfights and picking on weaker kids in a physical way. Teachers wouldn't bother trying to help students, and they took bullying as a "boys will be boys" situation.
2000's - present
During the 80's and 90's, physical bullying still involved the stronger picking on the weaker. Freshmen were picked on a lot by the older grades, and it was considered a right of passage. People didn't consider it as a major problem though, since everyone had to go through it as a freshman and it was supposedly just a part of growing up. Then there was the typical jock vs nerd bullying, which involved wedgies, shoving/pushing, tripping, punching, threats, and humiliation. This type of bullying left both emotional and physical scars on victims, leading them to possible depression and suicide.
The 80's is when more and more bully's started appearing in entertainment programs. Now there's a bully character in almost every tv show, movie, and book.
The 2000's to present bullying strategies changed completely due to the use of internet and cell phones. Cyberbullying has a huge effect on teens. It's easy to bully someone from behind a computer screen then actually say it to their face. Having the ability to send a mean message gives everyone a chance to bully someone, no matter what sexuality, race, or stereotype. It also is very easy to be a victim of cyberbullying. Today's teens are constantly using social networks and on smart phones, and getting a rude text is a hard thing to ignore. Giving people the chance to simply send a message makes them feel powerful, no one can touch them when they say it through a screen.
