That’s Not Cool

There has been some excellent coverage here on the blog about the recent, tragic spate of suicides caused by bullying.  If you haven’t read them yet, you should!:

Make it Better – a message to everyone

Think About It

What I’d like to call your attention to today is a website where you can catalog actions you’ve taken against bullying.  It’s called That’s Not Cool, and you can check it out here:


That’s Not Cool offers help with digital abuse – be it from your significant other, friends, enemies, or all shades of gray in-between.  It offers Call-Out Cards for actions that are not cool, links to resources for anyone who may need extra support, and a forum for people to talk about issues of digital bullying and abuse.  It also has a games section.

Talking about these problems may not solve them, but it definitely helps to talk about them and to fight back against abusive actions.  If you’re being harrassed over IM, text messaging, email, or anywhere online, it’s not cool.  Let people know.

Also check out Draw Your Line, a resource put together by MTV to collect all the ways teens are fighting digital abuse.
