Bullying - Being called a Homosexual

Extracts from this document...


Personal / Reflective Topic: Bullying - Being called a Homosexual It was about three years ago when a rumour about me was spread about the school. It was not the first time I had been bullied but this time it was more upsetting. The rumour was that I was "gay" and I had done a "sexual act" with some another boy. I was really upset by this and I would never forget it for the rest of my life. Even today I still think why me? I first knew about a rumour at a lunchtime standing in the queue in the canteen. A friend from Boy's Brigade came up to me and said, " I heard that you are gay". I said " that's crap". He agreed with me. I thought to myself "here the name calling starts again and why can't they pick on someone else". I put it out of my mind and ignored it. I went to the library that lunchtime to use the computers when more people said "your gay". It was really starting to annoy me inside but I had to put on a brave face and ignore it and don't let them see it is getting to me. ...read more.


I wondered whom then could I be a friend with, no one would want to be friends with someone who is supposedly gay. The next day mum and I went up to school to see my Guidance Teacher. I told Mr what happened but he said this was a very serious matter and should be dealt with the house Assistant Rector. I told what happened but I was now crying my eyes out. I tried to give him as much information as I could but I was so upset. He said that we have to sort it out as soon as possible. I decided that I should go my classes and put on a brave face and show people that it is not getting to me. tried his best to find out who had started it but no one would own up to it. That night I confided in my best friend Ross. I told him everything that happened with Mr Warren and the outcome of it. He told me not to worry but inside I was hurting so much that I wanted to leave. ...read more.


I never actually found out who started the rumour but no one calls me names anymore but then there are a few who do call me names. All my friends stood by me through this and I admire them for sticking up and listening to me and what I told them never went any further when I was upset This situation has changed as me as a person because if someone calls me a name I put my chin up and forgets about them. I am now sympathetic to people who are homosexuals who are not accept by society because of their sexuality. I will never forget happened to me but I have put to the back of mind and have just got on with my life. I think it has affected the way I treat others who are being bullied because I know what they have been through. If I see someone being bullied I just watch and think that is what I went through but I don't want to tell anyone because they probably don't want someone interfering. I did not like people interfering in my problems. Word Count: 1,218 words 1 1 Higher English First Draft ...read more.
