Bullies Douse Ohio Boy With Bodily Fluids, Cigarettes for Ice Bucket Challenge

An Ohio teenager with autism thought he was taking the ALS ice bucket challenge, but instead of water, a group of juveniles doused the 15-year-old boy with a mix of bodily fluids and cigarette butts, family members said Wednesday.

The incident, which was recorded on the boy’s cell phone, was released to KTLA sister station WJW-TV. The teen’s family chose to share the video in an effort to make other parents aware of bullying, the Cleveland Fox affiliate reported.

In the clip, the shirtless teen is standing in front of a garage when from above comes a bucketful of liquid, which according to the boy’s family, contained feces, urine, spit and cigarette butts.

“Once we found out about it, we were just horrified,” the boy’s mother told Fox 8. “I want these kids held accountable for what they did to him, and that they targeted somebody who just didn’t really understand what was going on.”

A police investigation is underway and criminal charges could be filed, according to Bay Village Police Department Det. Kevin Krolkosky.

“Obviously, if possible, we do want to hold those individuals accountable for their actions,” Krolkosky said.

The teen’s mother and father hoped the release of the video will inspire other parents to talk about bullying with their own children.

“The bucket challenge is supposed to be raising awareness for this disease and now they’ve turned it into a sick joke,” the victim’s mom said. “I just can’t understand why kids would do something this cruel.”

I wanna beat the life out of these kids Im so pissed off by this.

This type of behavior needs to end. This isn’t a prank. You hear about these types of stories all the time of people taking advantage of those with diminished capacity.

This isn’t “bullying” it’s assault. Kids can be just as inhumane if not more than grown adults. I’m sick of this behavior being passed off as “they’re” just kids.” This is an incident that can potentially scar a person permanently.

In response to anyone who thinks they have an fierce inner black woman in them and is not in fact, a black woman

See the thing about that fire and that “fierceness” is that it’s born out of our oppression, out of always being told that we are ugly, that our bodies are too fat or too muscular, that we don’t have the right kind of hair — and having to deconstruct all those things and tell ourselves that we are beautiful even though society is telling us that we are not.  

That strength is born out of always having to defend ourselves against white supremacy and anti-black-woman-patriachy. From years of not seeing ourselves represented in anything aligned with beauty, of buying products that are made to make us look like not ourselves.

So there is no way you could have an inner black woman in you. You have not experienced our struggle, you don’t know it, you haven’t lived it, and you can’t imagine it. 

See, you can’t sit with us, because we haven’t been able to sit at your table since our existence in this country. And while we were being excluded from your table we made our own, and it is fabulous and fly. And of course you now want to try and have a seat at our table, take our table, use it and ignore all the labor that went into creating THAT table.

But nah, sorry boo boo.

You ain’t never going to be us, you can try to wear your hair like us, you can try to dance like us, talk like us, wish you were us, but know this —

YOU-WILL-NEVER-BE-US

Remember Wendy Davis?

image

You know, the badass democrat who fillibustered for 11 hours straight to conserve women’s rights in Texas?

image

Well, this wonderful and amazing woman has announced her campaign for Texas governor!

image

Let’s show her some goddamn support!

Her opponent, Greg Abbott, is all about “traditional values.”

 What fucking good have “traditional values” ever done for anyone?

Not a goddamn thing, that’s what. Vote for Wendy Davis.

Men always say that as the defining compliment: the Cool Girl. She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means that I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see these men - friends, coworkers, strangers - giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much - no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version - maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: ‘I like strong women.’ If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because ‘I like strong women’ is code for ‘I hate strong women.’)
I waited patiently - years - for the pendulum to swing the other way, for men to start reading Jane Austen, learn how to knit, pretend to like cosmos, organize scrapbook parties, and make out with each other while we leer. And then we’d say, Yeah, he’s a Cool Guy.
But it never happened. Instead, women across the nation colluded in our degradation! Pretty soon Cool Girl became the standard girl. Men believed she existed - she wasn’t just a dreamgirl one in a million. Every girl was supposed to be this girl, and if you weren’t, then there was something wrong with you.

"It worries me how racist the Disney fandom is. Seriously, someone brings up the fact that Frozen has no POC and the racist people come out of the woodworks. It’s also upsetting that a lot of people don’t want more POC in the line up"

Because GOD FORBID a fairytale set in Scandinavia has white people. Le shock. Le horror.

And if you want more POC in the lineup, TALK WITH YOUR DAMN MONEY.

Buy Tiana merchandise. Buy Facilier merchandise. Buy Lilo and Nani merchandise. Buy Pocahontas and Mulan merchandise. Buy Jasmine merchandise. Buy Aladdin merchandise. Buy Esmeralda merchandise. Buy Kuzco merchandise. Buy Kenai and Sitka and Denahi merchandise. Buy Mowgli merchandise. Buy Russell merchandise.

Because that’s what Disney and big corporations like it listen to.

Oh, and it’s cute how the character used here is Esmeralda, my personal favourite ever Disney character, who was kicked out of the lineup because she wasn’t popular enough, has ZERO merchandise, and has practically been forgotten except among the nerdiest of Disney nerds. Even the people working at the freaking Disney Store and at Disney theme parks don’t remember the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

But no, don’t think about that, bitch about how a film set in one of the whitest areas of Earth has no POC instead of showing support for the POC that have actually been a part of the Disney lineup and proving that you actually care about the issue.

But that’s what always happens - cry and whine and bitch and then when a character that meets your criteria comes along lose all interest after two seconds so you can cry and whine and bitch some more next time you find an excuse.

No, it doesn’t matter that Elsa is the first disabled/ mentally ill Disney princess, or that at the end she doesn’t magically get better, or that the movie says “hey kids, sometimes there are people that are broken in the brainpan, and they can be outcasts and unhappy and scared and odd, but that’s OK, they are still people, even good people, and it’s OK to love them and to BE them”. It doesn’t matter that Rapunzel realistically portrays emotional/ psychological abuse of a child by its caregiver.

All that matters is their skin colour.

Bullet points:

  • The Snow Queen, the story that Frozen is loosely based off of had characters of color in it. For the makers of Frozen to omit them is racism by exclusion. Also, Arendelle is not an actual place. And even though Scandinavia is majorly white, it doesn’t mean that people of color never existed there. The movie actually whitewashes the Saami (referenced by the ice harvesters and Kristoff), who, at the time when the film takes place, where still majorly people of color.
  • It’s easy to say “talk with your money” when there’s no merchandise to be found. In a lot of places, you’re hard pressed to find much merchandise for Tiana or Jasmine, let alone Pocahontas and Mulan or any other characters of color for that matter. You act like this stuff is just sitting on the shelves just waiting to be bought and people are just going along and ignoring it. No. We don’t buy it because it’s not available to us. Do you know that in many stores, dolls of the princesses of color sell out first because there’s so little stock of them compared to the white princesses. I’m going to assume you didn’t since you’re spouting this nonsense.
  • People have been showing support for Disney characters of color: there are plenty of blogs that highlight Disney’s different characters of color, like disneyofcolor, disneydiversity, and disneyforprincess for instance. There is appreciation for these characters; they’re just overshadowed by their white counterparts who are given much more exposure and adoration by the fandom and the company.
  • Rapunzel and Elsa have been good characters for what they have gone through and what they portray (somewhat accurately), but yes, their skin color does matter. Their skin color affords them an automatic level of sympathy iin their stories in relation to the women of color in Disney’s franchise. Their whiteness gives them an automatic leg up because white characters in general are aloud to be seen as automatically multifaceted and sympathetic. This is not the same for characters of color. It is a proven fact that skin color determines how much sympathy, support and humanity that people are given.
  • Speaking of mental illness and abuse: here’s a neat fact. Did you know that black people are thought to have less mental illness/problems compared to white people because of a myth that they feel less pain and stress (this actually dates all the way back to slavery)? This is why there will probably never be a black princess that will have some sort of mental illness/abuse like Rapunzel or Elsa because it would seem “uncharacteristic” of a black woman. 
  • Whiteness is seen as the default as well as the most human: imagine what that realization does to the minds of people of color as well as the people that surround them. So think before you speak about what people need to do when you actually know what you’re talking about.
