PSHE - Banter and Bullying 2017
Transcript of PSHE - Banter and Bullying 2017
When does friendly banter become offensive?
At what point does it become bullying or even harrassment?
‘“Through repetition and the magic of social media, banter has become an acceptable, friendlier-sounding term for bullying.”
Discriminatory comments - sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, racist
Asserting power / hierarchy
Who is on the receiving end?
how is it making them feel?
Be the one to call time on the joke that has gone too far
BANTER ON SOCIAL MEDIA - PROBLEMATIC?
'Banter' is considered part of our culture - consider the definitions below - do they hold positive or negative 'connotations' or associations?
Consider the range of comedy programming that relies on banter, its place in British culture, even in our political processes...
However, increasingly 'it's just banter' has been used by public figures as an excuse for intimidating or offensive behaviour. It shows that how 'banter' may be interpreted can make it problematic
Can you think of any recent examples of this?
In cultural studies, Stuart Hall's model of Encoding/Decoding identifies the process by which a person may 'transmit' a particular message, yet cannot guarantee that the receiver will 'decode' the message as expected. You cannot be sure that the person on the receiving end of banter therefore sees it as 'just a joke' and it may have an emotional impact you had not anticipated.
SO, what can we do about it?
As a group - use the sugar paper to scribe the following:
1. When is banter acceptable and not acceptable?
2. when does banter become bullying?
3. What can we do as a community to eradicate banter as bullying?
