Sometimes I feel targeted on this site. I know, I'm a teen girl who is an atheist… but some people just can't accept that. Shown on this photo is a conversation between me and another person on EP. I was responding to a girl's post on how she was questioning her beliefs, and I left a fairly neutral answer wishing her luck… I don't want to force my beliefs on people. But, this guy… yeah, yeah I'm young, and I admit that I am and don't know how to deal with this stuff too well. So… the dialogue is as proceeded in case you can't see all of it on the cover image:

Chrism5: Hopefully you won't spend your whole life in the dark

everybodyclapyourhands (me): As well as that for you.

Chrism5: I know the light, do you?


everybodyclapyourhands: I know the truth. Do you?

Chrism5: At your age I don't think you know much. You just think you do

This'll sound stupid but… duuuuuuuuuuude -_-
I wonder how the conversation could've carried on if I were older… and if he hadn't blocked me (this user's settings prevents you from so-and-so… contact?). I know I was sarcastic and teenagery (word or not a word, I do not know), but as I said… I don't have much experience with people like Chrism5. Just an overview of the conversation… I may not be old but I know enough, and if I don't know too much, neither do you (to the addressed) stupid is as stupid does. No one really knows how we even exist, but I don't hide my knowledge behind one book or a man in the sky. If this guy tried to tell me specifically what he believes, I would've listened. Well, I can't see his profile anymore… but that's okay. Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned in the original comment to the OP of the experience that I'm not religious… but, why not?

So… people of any age, gender, religion or sexual orientation (why not?), feel free to comment! :)

Bye for now.

Did you do anything to get targeted

Why are you trolling this girl?

Why do you say mean things about people?

😮

View a Flash presentation: What is cyberbullying?

what is it? :: how it works :: why cyberbully? :: prevention :: take action :: what's the law?

What is cyberbullying, exactly?

"Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyberstalking is NEVER called cyberbullying.

It isn't when adult are trying to lure children into offline meetings, that is called sexual exploitation or luring by a sexual predator. But sometimes when a minor starts a cyberbullying campaign it involves sexual predators who are intrigued by the sexual harassment or even ads posted by the cyberbullying offering up the victim for sex.

The methods used are limited only by the child's imagination and access to technology. And the cyberbully one moment may become the victim the next. The kids often change roles, going from victim to bully and back again.

Children have killed each other and committed suicide after having been involved in a cyberbullying incident.

Cyberbullying is usually not a one time communication, unless it involves a death threat or a credible threat of serious bodily harm. Kids usually know it when they see it, while parents may be more worried about the lewd language used by the kids than the hurtful effect of rude and embarrassing posts.

Cyberbullying may rise to the level of a misdemeanor cyberharassment charge, or if the child is young enough may result in the charge of juvenile delinquency. Most of the time the cyberbullying does not go that far, although parents often try and pursue criminal charges. It typically can result in a child losing their ISP or IM accounts as a terms of service violation. And in some cases, if hacking or password and identity theft is involved, can be a serious criminal matter under state and federal law.

When schools try and get involved by disciplining the student for cyberbullying actions that took place off-campus and outside of school hours, they are often sued for exceeding their authority and violating the student's free speech right. They also, often lose. Schools can be very effective brokers in working with the parents to stop and remedy cyberbullying situations. They can also educate the students on cyberethics and the law. If schools are creative, they can sometimes avoid the claim that their actions exceeded their legal authority for off-campus cyberbullying actions. We recommend that a provision is added to the school's acceptable use policy reserving the right to discipline the student for actions taken off-campus if they are intended to have an effect on a student or they adversely affect the safety and well-being of student while in school. This makes it a contractual, not a constitutional, issue.

What did this guy deserve to get this kind of treatment?

This is amazinggod here. Is this what you all do is sit here and bash people on here because they called you out on something. Is that all you do is make fun of people's learning disability. You are telling me that I am forteen year old and three old acting like this, but you are making posts about me tehat is not right and you are making fun of me. You are making fun of my learning disability and that is not right. You are bullying me because I see you trying to humiliate me in here by posting about me and making me look bad. I would never say I hate gays. I would never bash anybody on here. The urls are put down about me and I didn't want to see them anymore. You people are truly cool, when you know I got kicked off here and you are trash talking me while I am seeing this all on here and that is true cruel to do someone. I am get banned.

I have to say you people have better things do the just bash Christians here. You mocked me for saying when Christians turn away from Christ they act like Atheists. Then you bash Christian Atheism. Christian Atheism is Christian that loves God by denies Christianity. Then you say I bash gays. Get a life. Stop bashing people. You are so evil in here.

Cyberbullying is the use of information technology to harm or harass other people in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner.[1] According to U.S. Legal Definitions, Cyber-bullying could be limited to posting rumors or gossips about a person in the internet bringing about hatred in other’s minds; or it may go to the extent of personally identifying victims and publishing materials severely defaming and humiliating them.[2]

With the increase in use of these technologies, cyberbullying has become increasingly common, especially among teenagers.[3] Awareness has also risen, due in part to high-profile cases like the suicide of Tyler Clementi.[4]

*sigh*

These are all the same person. She gets suspended then comes back with a new account in about 5 minutes. Ignore her.

jesuslovers, jazziemade, amazingandbeautifulgodseyes, amazinggod, suspendedthreetimesforbeiefs, paniclover,

Not olipha, her profile said she's an atheist. That copied cyber-bullying post is new material besides the obvious victimizing of the other woman who keeps on making accounts.

Please tell me more. You know why I left experience project.com because I got tired of the Atheist copying and posting what I said on there and bashing me for what I said and I never talked to them in my life. I am not going to appeal my account because there is just drama on there. It makes me mad that experience project lets them be on there. I had to get the cops involved with their post because it truly hurt my feelings. They were bashing what I said on there and they were cyber bullying me, so I had to get off there. Now, they stopped doing it because they got me banned. I am sorry that one guy was bashing you on there, Blaze1103. I will tell you right now, that is not the place you should because they have body parts on there and they have people that are nude on there. Some of those people are cyberbullies, so I stay off there. They say that I say Atheists are bad, I call Atheists Satanic, I bash gays on there and you know that is not true. All those posts got deleted and I had to make several accounts, so it can get deleted. They are never going to let me back on there because what I said on there. I don't want no part of that cyber bullying. They said look Christian Atheism is when Christians refuse religion, but love Jesus and they were mocking me on there. Then they were mocking me about saying some Christians act like they are Atheist and I said, but I said that because we reject God, when we don't follow his ways too. Now, they have stopped bashing me, but I would stay off there. Thank you so much. I would rather talk on the phone, but keep details safe.

Theists feel that they have a monopoly on truth, whatever that is. They also feel they have the right to confront those who do not believe what they do.

Blocking is a tactic often used when one feels backed into a corner, and can't give an adequate response. That way they don't have to deal with the discomfort of not knowing what they are talking about.
--
But I agree with others who have said to be careful about claiming to know the Truth. Truth is a slippery thing.

Adults always act as if teens don't know anything, or that they have yet to find out what is right from wrong. But often adults are the ones who are wrong, because they underestimate teens. I am also an atheist and I'm in my 20's. Often people don't take me serious because I'm 'still young'. it's annoying.

The conversation probably would have happened exactly the same way if you were older.

Except that if you were older, you probably wouldn't have said "I know the truth", because people tend to learn only later in life just how much they were wrong when they were younger, and it turns out there are people out there that are smarter than we are, so a claim like "I know the truth" risks a response from someone that actually knows better. :)

Also, if you were older, he might not have taken an interest in you in the first place. I don't know what got that conversation started, but sometimes older people talk to people like you online just because they're creeps.

You are doing just fine. I too am an atheist. It often feels as though packs of rabid hounds are trying rend kne apart doesn't it? The believers, bejng irrational, often resort to horribly mistreating us. I read the christians book to arm myself against them (most of them have not read it), I have read the muslims book, the hindis book.... knowing more abiut their religions than they do is easy and it makes it much easier to shine a bright light on their hypocrisy and irrationality. You just keep on being who you are.

Actually, from what ive read of this you seem very inelligent and knowledgeable. You seem to know what it is you speak of. My favorite teacher always says that he thinks our generation, teens, has lived more experienced more and knows more than most people older than us. Adults suck. Almost word for word there, but I don't know the exact quote

Thanks! :D your teacher seems to be a cool guy. I don't know what happens to some adults, but I just hope I stay the same!

Don't go around bashing adults just bc that guy's a fucktard. Some Odis are a lot smarter than the average sheep :)

I don't necessarily hate adults, and I'm not bashing them. That dude is a fucktard, I do know. Not all adults are.

Of us*

You literally contradicted yourself by falsely capitalizing an improper noun, and mistyping "of us". Your argument is invalid.

Improper use of a comma by the way. Make sure you proofread before you get all douchey.

My iPhone is invalid.

Did you waych that Superman movie in the early 2000s? I think it was 02. Best line in ghe film : "WROOOONG!!!!!!". Good thing it's valid here, because you are (insert quote here). I can use a comma there, come see me on Microsoft Word Proofreading, oh wait I have corrected its mistakes before. Hop off broskee.

Ok. I'm leaving. Not arguing with you. Have a good night.

Much appreciated. Later.

Age doesn't equal knowledge. Some people are so deep in delusion, that you can't reason with them. He blocked you because, deep down, he knows just how ignorant he clearly is. He didn't even make any points, other than that you are young. I wouldn't worry too much about people like him.

I understand. Even dealing with people, I get that once they've ran out of ways to respond they behave like him (in similar mannerisms).

Of course. Some people can't handle the fact that we don't know everything. They'd rather make things up, instead of even searching for a real answer themselves.

Exactly. I couldn't have phrased it with more precision.

To Chism5: At your age, I think you'd know better.

Oh me, and my terrible American grammar.

Oh. That's nice to know. Thanks.
