Today is Pink Shirt Day! Pink Shirt Day started back in 2007. Two Nova Scotia teenagers encouraged fellow students to wear pink T-shirts in support of another teen who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. 12 years later and we all wear pink to let others know that bullying won’t be tolerated.
The theme this year is cyberbullying.
On a side note (but definitely related to the theme today), check out this public service announcement from the White Ribbon Campaign.
I came across this video today because my friend’s son is one of the actors in it. This PSA looks at the root of toxic masculinity. Please take a few minutes to watch it today and think about the words you use when you talk to young boys.
