This post by Evil Autie basically sums up allll the reasons why I didn’t report.
Why report when nothing will happen?
Why report when it will get worse for me if I do?
Why report when I’m the problem?
Why report when chances are, it’ll be me that gets punished?
Yeah. Allllll the reasons.
And every bullied kid I’ve ever talked to in my life? Cites all those reasons, too. We don’t not report because we’re immature or scared or what have you. We don’t report because we know from experience it doesn’t go well.
