Bullying is wrong! It is unacceptable behaviour that makes the person being bullied feel afraid or uncomfortable. There are many ways that young people bully each other, even if they don’t realize it at the time. Many have a good idea of what bullying is because they see it every day! Bullying happens when someone hurts or scares another person on purpose and the person being bullied has a hard time defending themselves. So, everyone needs to get involved to help stop it.
Queeried: - "...Following Breathe Life on the album is Whatcha Doin’ To Me. Every bit as addictive as Breathe Life, this track has an equally strong dance beat, but what really makes it stand out are the strength of Kent’s vocals which are able to show far more emotion than your average dance music artist. Another track destined to be put on repeat is Drive. Trading in the dance floor beats for a much more rocky feel, this does an incredible job of showing that Kent’s vocal talents go far beyond that of the packed dance floor, and if you think you’ve heard it somewhere before then you probably as it was a featured track in the Tori Spelling film, Kiss The Bride. From Queeried’s perspective though, there’s one track that really stands out – I’m Not Crazy. The number three video of 2007 on Logo, this is a song that has it all – the dance beat, the retro layers and oodles of energy in the form of Kent’s vocals – and is guaranteed to be the one you’ll be asking the DJ why he hasn’t got it on his playlist..."

Bullying is an abusive treatment, the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when habitual and involving an imbalance of power. It may involve verbal harassment, physical assault or coercion and may be directed persistently towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability. The "imbalance of power" may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "targeted individual" (Wikipedia).
