Author Notes

The Trouble with Being Ya Self This page strikes a chord with me on a personal level. When I was a young lad, I was constantly picked on. For most of my Elementary school and Middle School years I was the subject of constant ridicule and harsh words. In other words, I was bullied. It wasn't until high school where I summoned up enough courage and self confidence to just be myself, and not care what others think. Eventually, the bullies got bored, not getting a rise or reaction out of me anymore. They eventually stopped.
Not everyone is that lucky.

These days bullying is just as present as it ever was and dare I say even more intense. What's frightening to me, is that these days full grown ADULTS partake in this sort of thing as "trolls" online. The bullying subject matter can be about anything, religion, politics, beliefs and yes, even movies.

They done goofed! Sadly this kind of thing does still happen IRL, even as geek stuff has become more mainstream.
