Alexander Skarsgard to Parents: It Gets Better

by at . Comments

Alexander Skarsgard has joined the "It Gets Better" campaign, but the True Blood star has tweaked the message a bit.

In the following video, the handsome actor addresses the parents of bullied teens and says: "We have to teach our children that, not only through our words but also through our actions, that every single human being has equal value. And to bully someone or for society to discriminate against someone because they have a different sexual orientation, it’s unacceptable.”

Anyone care to argue with those wise words?

Bullying is not "human nature," it is taught (usually by example) If there were no bullying, children would not have to "fight back," nor would they have to "stand up for themselves" for being different, even if that difference is something that simply annoys you ("obnoxious," indeed!) Bullying is an attempt to break someone's spirit. And that is a violation!

SOMETIMES, NOT ALWAYS, THE BULLIED PERSON ASKS FOR IT, BY BEING OBNOXIOUS.

I'm not buying this entire "it gets better" thing. It teaches kids to not stand up for themselves. Let's face it, there is always going to be bullying, it's human nature. Why not teach our children to fight back. That is what Americans do.
