Have you ever been teased or made the butt of a mean comment then told, "I was just joking"?
Mosaic, our anti-bullying group at SWC, is addressing this with their social media campaign #itsnotfunnyswc, running on Twitter and Instagram.
The slogan "Our (blank) is not your punchline" allows students to "fill in the blank" with their own possible reasons for being teased; appearance, race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, disability or mental health. Through this, they may come to understand that they are not alone and possibly learn some strategies for dealing with bullying. We hope that through this campaign, all members of the SWC community will become empowered to stand up to bullying, whether they, or someone else is the target.
