Study: Political controversies could fuel bullying of LGBT youth
from HealthDay News
Heated political debate about the rights of marginalized groups might trigger increases in bullying, a new study says. It found that homophobic bullying at California schools peaked before a statewide referendum to ban gay marriage (Proposition 8), but declined after public debate about the proposition fell off. Researchers analyzed yearly survey data gathered between 2001 and 2015 from nearly 5 million middle and high school students in more than 5,000 California schools.
