if you are being bullied or abused on the internet then just block the cowards who are attacking you – they are just inadequates who feel important and powerfull as keyboard warriors.
Block them if they bother you, as your wellbeing is far more important than their inadequacies.
You can also set up a rule to send their material to trash or mute it rather than waste your time with it – I tend to do this with the saddos who can’t string a sentence together without foul language and obscenity.
I tend not to be too phased by the inadequates who set out to try to bully me – they usually get so het up at my ignoring them or taking the Mickey out of them they expose themselves to all and sundry as idiots with a personality problem.
We all have the choice how to react ourselves and although we all know that the idiots are trying to provoke a concerned reaction as they feel important with such achievements – so just ignore them if you can’t block them.
Dealing with bullies on behalf od others is worth a try and in wandering around the internet I came across this cleverly presented suggestion:
Some could say: “Yes but you can use that technique for instances of harassment other than Islamophobic attacks!”, and my reply is: Sure! Please do so, it also works for other “types” of harassment of a lone person in a public space!!
However I’m focusing on protecting Muslims here, as they have been very specific targets lately, and as a French Middle Eastern woman, I wanted to try and do something to raise awareness on how to help when such things happen before our eyes – that way one cannot say they “didn’t know what to do”!
I’d like to insist on two things:
1) Do not, in any way, interact with the attacker. You must absolutely ignore them and focus entirely on the person being attacked!
2) Please make sure to always respect the wishes of the person you’re helping: whether they want you to leave quickly afterwards, or not! If you’re in a hurry escort them to a place where someone else can take over – call one of their friends, or one of yours, of if they want to, the police. It all depends on how they feel!
These are the main steps:
1. Engage conversation.
2. Pick a random subject and start discussing it.
3. Keep building the safe space.
4. Continue the conversation until the attacker leaves & escort them to a safe place if necessary.
