The Bullywhip Pledge
As a Bullywhip, I pledge not to bully, harass, attack, or intentionally hurt my fellow Glee fandom members. I pledge to uphold a sense of dignity and respect, both toward myself and others, in my actions and words, and to remember that words can hurt and that I should not use them as a weapon. I pledge not to bully in retaliation to bullying, because I know it doesn't fix the problem.
I know that with my pledge, even if I used to be a bully, I will be safe from persecution here, because The Bullywhips accept anyone who is against bullying, including ex-bullies.
I pledge not to hide behind my internet anonymity so that I may bully without repercussions, because I know that even though no one knows it's me, I still know, and that's not who I want to be. I also pledge this because I understand that anonymous words of hate hurt just as much as any other kind.
I pledge to stand by the ideas fundamental to the anti-bullying movement and to lend an ear to people who have been hurt by bullying, should they need and ask for it. If I do not feel comfortable being a listening party, I pledge not to send people on bully witch hunts and, instead, will direct bullying victims to help lines, or to someone else they can talk to.
I'm taking the Bullywhip Pledge because bullying hurts and, sometimes, can kill. I'm taking it because I know bullying is wrong and I want to be part of the change. I'm taking the Bullywhip Pledge because I want to take a stand against bullying.
