Sorry for the less-than-pithy title, but I spelled it out to emphasize the multiple inconsistencies of the Leftist/Darwinian crowd that poses as part of the anti-bullying movement.
First, I want to be clear that I oppose all bullying.* For example, I know many gay/lesbian people, and I would defend them if they were bullied just as I would defend other sinners who were getting bullied. I’m just predisposed to protect the weak and defenseless, such as the unborn.
OK, back to whaling on the Leftist Darwinists: For starters, they don’t mind bullying as long as they are the bullies. See the Expelled! movie, for example. They are so “confident” in their views that they delight in using their power to silence opposing views, end careers, etc. Academic bullying is still bullying. The root of bullying is cowardice and fear, and they display it regularly.
And if they really believed what they claim they’d concede that there is no grounding to criticize bullying. Oh, we all know it is wrong, but in a molecules-to-man worldview you can write volumes trying to rationalize objective morality (and they do try!) but you always end up losing. It turns out to be “truth is relative” morality that they have no logical grounds to expect others to follow unless forced to.
And of course, if there is no God and we are purely the result of the Darwinian mechanism, then it is to “blame” for bullying. How could you hold the bullies accountable? They were born that way.
Finally, wouldn’t bullying be a positive in the Darwinian worldview? You know, survival of the fittest, the strong preying on the weak and all that. Why do they get squeamish and give up a core principle of their cherished worldview?
* My official, one-size-fits-all anti-bullying policy, offered here for the public domain and available for use by all school districts, free of charge:
If you physically or verbally harass other students on or off school grounds, including the Internet, you will have swift and serious consequences. It doesn’t matter if you are bullying because they are gay/straight/fat/thin/smart/dumb/pretty/ugly/etc., or if it is just because you are a mean jerk.
Training over. You don’t need LGBTQ sex clubs in schools to prevent bullying. That is just a Trojan Horse.
