Does Alye Pollack Look Like An Ugly Lesbo Slut Freak Fag To You?

Alye Pollack is 13, and an eighth grader at Bedford Middle School in Westport, Connecticut. She is also, to her classmates, a “bitch,” “whore,” “fat,” “lesbo,” “slut,” “freak,” “ugly,” “weird,” fag.” As of this post, more than 413,000 people have heard her cry for “HELP!” Alye? I will be your friend. (NB: Since the video went live earlier this month, Alye’s principal has notified parents he’s investigating instances of cyber-bullying, and that her classmates have “met with school officials and been reminded of internet safety and the consequences of cyber-bullying. The school urges parents to have discussions with their kids about cyber-bullying.”) Says her mother Audra Kruk: “The same parents who keep saying. ‘It’s not my kid,’ should watch what’s being posted.” Because since the video was posted, she’s been cyber-bullied more. “I used to be really, really confident,” says Alye. “And now, not so much because people have been bullying me, using those words.”

      She is a really beautiful girl! I would say she made some girl jealous, and thus the harrasment begins. What a shame, that she is going through this stuff every school day.

      She’s very beautiful and obviously intelligent and creative. It’s so sad that her life is being made unbearable by the heartless cunts at her school.

      I’m gay so my opinion does not count (on anything to a “good” Cchristian) but Alye is beautiful. She needs to smile more, but I have a lot of trouble with that as well. I hope Alye does not take life too seriously. Have fun, there are a lot of nice people around.

      This is a very serious matter ( as the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha would say)!!

      This is a very sincere cry for help. She is only 13 years old, very impressionable and very vulnerable. Yes indeed she is a very beautiful young lady. The names that are being thrown at her would hurt most of us at that age. I am happy to hear that the school is taking this seriously, and the perpetrators of this cyber-bullying to have a restorative approach to understand the dangerous nature towards their behavior.

      As for Alye… Good job of reaching out to your guidance counselor and your parents. Continue to have honest dialogue with them about how you feel.

      Remember that you are never as alone as you may feel.

      and lastly… the 3 to 4 friends that you have, if they are genuine and accept you for who you are… That is all that you need!!!

      Peace!!!

      @alan brickman, Nobody ever said she was gay! Assume much!?! People at school are calling her a lesbo.

      @alan brickman: as for looking for attention it would seem you are guilty of it, You know by posting inflamatory threads on this site you will get people angry so you can get some attention…somebody didn’t have alot of friends growing up, did he?

      WOW…
      She is a very beatiful and intelligent young girl. This video is very sincere and very inspirational, it gave me goosebumps!

      Anyone who bullies her based on appearance or orientation (whether she is a lesbian or not) are horrible people, and are the kind of people responsible for suicides (kids of ALL orientations), So i wish her a lot of good luck and hope that the bullying stops, or she at least starts feeling happier.
