An Analysis of the Shadow-Renegade's "Cyber Bullying" by Haley Cissel
Many people's interpretation of bullying is incorrect. People believe that bullying only takes place face to face, with evil words spoken. Seen in the artwork, words hurts. Whether it is face to face, behind your back, or even through a computer screen. These days, bullying seems to have sparked an all time high, but in reality it has always existed.
The difference is, today we are more aware of the bullying that takes place by displaying it by new forms of technology. New stories of bullying are posted, broadcasted, and aired each day for millions of viewers to see. Seeing this, bullies are getting ideas from others and using them to their advantage. The sad thing is, technology today has enabled us to post things anonymously; which completely enables us to hunt down the bully behind the screen.
Seen in the artwork, a girl is shown on the left using technology in order to bully another girl, seen on the right. Whore, stupid, die, and other hateful words are sent to the girl. Even though this bullying was taken place online, the words have affected the girl just the same as if she was being bullied face to face. The girl on the right is seen crying; proof that words hurt people just as much as a physical punch.
You never know what your mean actions may lead to, which is why bullying needs to cease. Thousands of teens and even adults are hurting themselves, even killing themselves in some cases, in order to try and stop the pain. When the bullying is taken place over the internet,phone,etc., the bully is unable to see the consequences of their words. New technology has enabled bullies to bully in more ways than the past, and is a leading cause of many deaths throughout the world today.
