A lot of attention is given to the big, bad words. But what about the other slights and insults that kids hear everyday?
I think, or at least hope, that by now many adults (and hopefully kids) have gotten the message that words that are insulting or demeaning to others are not ok. But the focus seems to be on a few big words. Those need to go, for sure. But what about the other everyday slights that happen in class, on the playground, in the hallways? Just because they don’t make the headlines doesn’t mean they don’t hurt, too.
If you heard these words said in front of you — or worse, to you — would you take a stand?
This video is from the UK, with Sir Ian McKellan narrating. You might not know the meaning of every word, but the intent is clear. And no one should have to suffer that.
