Kimye Name Debate Continues Bullying Cycle Warns Anti Bullying Expert John Caldwell, Angels Goal
Date:6/24/2013

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

As media coverage and the jokes accelerate about the reported choice of “North West” for baby Kimye, one of Australia’s leading anti-bullying advocates has warned of the dangers of making fun of someone just for being different.

Angels Goal Corporate Ambassador John Caldwell warned that the increasing focus on the fact that the name is unusual showcased a fundamental cause of bullying.

“The name “North West” may be different but if we are to combat the plague of bullying that exists in our community then we all need to make sure that differences are celebrated and not singled out as being weird,” Mr Caldwell said.

“The biggest reason people bully is because they can’t understand or accept someone they see as different, whether it’s because of the way they look, speak, or because of their name.”

“Sadly, we are in the midst of a bullying epidemic and we all have a responsibility to make sure that no-one is picked on or singled out because their name is different, or because they are different in any way. I am concerned that we will see a surge in kids being made fun of because of their names as a result of this increasingly critical coverage of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s name choice.”

Mr Caldwell called on media outlets to stop perpetuating the cycle.

“Headline after headline, story after story is making fun of the name. That needs to stop – this is a beautiful little girl we’re talking about and there are much wider issues at play which can lead to legitimising the bullying of other young people in the schoolyard and the workplace.”

Angels Goal (http://www.angelsgoal.org.au) is Australia’s leading anti-bullying organisation, providing support for those being bullied and their families and friends.
