Lady Gaga Wants Bullying To Be Illegal. WDYT?

Do you wish more celebs took a stand like Gaga?

It looks like Lady Gaga is once again taking a serious stand against bullying. Gaga is known for standing up for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, and we love her for that. When she heard about the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer, who took his life because he was getting bullied for being gay, she tweeted about it immediately.

Gaga tweeted, “Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 years old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime.”

Right after that, she added, “I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey”.

WDYT, gURLs? Have you ever been bullied? Do you wish people did more to try to stop it? Do  you agree with Gaga that bullying should be illegal? Discuss in the comments!

    It needs to be illegal,seriously.

    Fuck yeah, it should be illegal! Maybe I am little biased (two of my friends commited scuicide because of bullies), but it DEFINATELY should be. I get bullied all the time because I am not Christian (I’m Shaman :]) and because I believe in gay marriage. A lot of the poeple in my new school don’t belive in that kind of stuff. Apparently, if your not Christian, you worship Satan. If your not straight, your soul has been infiltrated by Satan and must be saved. Stupid, right? Any way, I agree completely with Lady Gaga, and I believe that bullying should be illegal as well.

    Bullying is such an awful thing. It can affect someone in a horrible way and for a long time. I don’t know if it will be possible to make it illegal but there needs to be some type of consequences put in place because right now so many people get away with it and that’s unacceptable!!

    Making bullying illegal is a difficult thing to do and I don’t think it should happen. Bullying is horrible, but it should be monitored instead. Elementary students can be bullies, anyone can be. How are little kids supposed to be aware of this stuff? Bullying is also very subjective. Whose to say what bullying really is? Instead of making it illegal, why don’t we, individually, take a stand against bullying! Bullying can be stopped without a stupid law!
