Movies with Bullying as a Part of the Plot

This is a great movie that’s drenched with woman-on-woman workplace bullying. The protagonist in the movie deals with catty coworkers and an entitled, demanding queen bee boss! This is a must see if you want to catch a sneak peak into the world of office politics.

 

This movie is about Clifford Peache, a boy who moves to a new school and gets bullied by Melvin Moody and his friends, who are meanest boys in the school. After taking a few beatings, his last resort is to hire a bigger, but troubled kid named Ricky Lenderman to be his bodyguard and the two become friends. But when Moody hires his own bodyguard, Mike, the heat gets turned to a boiling point. This movie ends with an explosion of fists and fury!

 

If you want to know what high school bullying looks like. Look no further than this flick. Regina George is the head bully in this movie and she’s a force to be reckoned with.

 

This movie is a hilarious teen movie with high school bullying in it. William Zabka, who plays the character of Johnny in “Karate Kid” plays the lead bully in this film. This movie has a few parts that are risque, so I wouldn’t advise letting children under 17 watch it. But I’ll leave that up to the parents to decide.

 

 

If you’ve seen The Karate Kid, then you’ll automatically feel horrible for Daniel LaRusso as he has many run-ins with bullies Johnny, Tommy, Dutch, and Bobby. But at the end of the movie, you will cheer for him. This movie has many scenes that will stir your emotions

 

The Breakfast Club is one of my absolute favorites! It’s a fun movie with a bully teacher who talks down to the kids who must serve detention by being stuck at school on Saturday. This movie is a reminder that every kid has problems, whether they’re rich, poor,  the prom queen, the jock, the nerdy bookworm, or the oddball.

This movie is based on Kenny Roger’s hit song “Coward of the County.” It’s about a boy named Tommy who promised his father, who died in prison, that he’d always walk away from trouble. But when his bullies take turns assaulting his girlfriend, Becky, Tommy is pushed to his breaking point and fists fly as he deals out the punishment to them for harming his Becky.

Reality of Reality Shows- How They Get High Ratings

I feel compelled to discuss how these shows get their ratings to give parents who permit their children to watch them a better understanding of what subliminal messages their child may be receiving.

Sadly, reality shows that receive the highest ratings also have the highest peer abuse incidences, commonly called bullying. Peer abusers (bullies) love drama and are drawn to it like flies to feces! Bullying brings drama…always! The more altercations and confrontations a reality show displays for viewers, the more drama it brings.

More drama means the show is more interesting to viewers. The more interesting the show, the more views the show gets, and the higher the ratings the show receives.

Also, the more drama a certain reality star brings to a show (usually by bullying others on the show), the higher the show is rated, and in return, the higher the star is rated by producers of the show and network executives…all because he/she brings the most drama. For a reality star, this not only guarantees them a spot on the show’s next season but also much higher pay, with producers and execs offering the bullying star hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars!

This equals great rewards for bullies on the show…rewarding and encouraging despicable behavior! Think Teresa Guidice, “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” or Nene Leakes, “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

In my opinion, both of these women, who are in their 40’s and 50’s, have shown some of the most queen bee, mean girl behavior of anyone on television.

Should they even qualify as stars? I don’t know about anyone else, but in my opinion, watching women in this age group display such girl’s room/locker room antics is sickening and an embarrassment to my generation of women.

This behavior is unbecoming of women of any age but looks downright ugly coming from middle-aged women, whom you think would be a better example to younger females.

Parents need to sit down with children and explain that just because reality shows make bullying look glamorous does not mean that bullying is okay. Bullying is anything but glamorous, especially to victims.

Sadly, high ratings for these shows speak volumes about the society we live in today- that the bulk of society apparently has an insatiable appetite for trash. It is glaring proof that in the eyes of a vast majority, crap is king. It shouldn’t be any wonder that bullying and peer abuse is so globally rampant today.

Parents and grandparents must either forbid kids to watch these types of reality shows. If they permit them to watch it, they must also explain to the children that just because certain behavior is shown on television does not mean it is acceptable in real life.

We must also stop prioritizing petty and poor values, one of which is the misguided belief that being the most popular, liked, or the toughest kid on the block is what life’s all about.

Users and Losers

Some people don’t love you
They only use you

You’re not a person
only a convenience

‘Not a friend
but an opportunity

You’re not important
You’re available

They don’t love you
They love your benefits

They never show up
Even though you have

They never have your back
Even though you’ve had theirs

They give nothing in return
Only leave you to burn

They aren’t worth a dime
‘Not worth your time

They don’t care
‘Only a waste of breathable air

They have no place
They’re a waste of space

Get far, far away
They aren’t worth the time of day

They only give you Hell
And love to see you fail

They only yearn
For you to crash and burn

When you feel glad
It only makes them mad
