Have you ever thought how people feel when you make fun of them? i bet you haven’t because if you have then you wouldn’t have made fun of that person& hurt there feelings. I know how those people feel to get made fun of and i also know how it feels to be made fun of by somebody else. So i believe that people shouldn’t be made fun of because its not cool, it hurts the other persons feelings and making fun of others makes you look stupid and insecure.

I really have no idea why people make fun of others. I always hear things like they’re bullies,that is the way they were brought up and the best one is that the bully is not happy with their lives.making fun of could be damaging to the other persons self-esteem and self-confidence. If i was being made fun of i would feel horrible. If the people making fun of the other person was getting made fun of they wouldn’t like it neither. I don’t understand why people make fun of someone else if they don’t like to be made fun of.

Most of the time when people are getting made fun of the most common things you would hear are name calling, profanity and physical abuse. the reason why I’m saying this is because you would hear a lot of name calling. Profanity is used to much when people make fun of each other. So those are the most of the ways you would hear or see people being made fun of.

The most common things you see when people are being made fun of is crying,drugs And overdose also suicide. My experience on this is I have see people do drugs in class before because they were being made fun of. i have also seen people crying their eyes out while on the phone and i asked what had been going on and she said people were making fun of me. you would hear people shooting their schools and also jumping out buildings because their sick and tired of people making fun of them.

So i bet you’ll think twice when you make fun of a person now. i really don’t like being made fun of or see other people being made fun of. So i want to see everyone to get along and i need your help. I’m going to make a change in this world. And that i BELIEVE !
