Question Should i tell her? - April 2nd 2011, 11:21 AM

I have this friend who's absolutely amazing and really nice! But recently all my friends have been talking about her, saying she's really weird and "retarded" because they saw her chewing her hair and picking a spot in lessons.
I feel so bad when they're laughing behind her back, but i don't think she's noticed. If she knew she'd be so upset.. and it would be so awkward telling her...and i don't know if she'd even want me to tell her?
Argh i feel like such a bad friend
She's also bi but only i know.. if that makes any difference?

Tell them to stop it. Explain to them, that you do not appreciate them making fun of her. I can understand how bothered you are. You have to speak up. You are not being a bad friend. You don't have to tell her that she is being made fun of. Just support her. Ignore what they say. You have to raise your voice about this. If you want to have a good friendship with her, you have to confront those that say those types of things. I'm sure if the tables were turned, they would not want to be made fun of. I hope things go well for you.

I agree with Jesse. You don't have to tell her, but you do have to do something about it. Stand up to those kids and tell them to stop making fun of her. Whether she knows about it or not, you need to support her. You're worried about her, that shows you're a good friend. To be a great friend, stand up for her. Good luck

You need to tell them that you don't appreciate the snide comments about your friend. Explain to them that you are friends with her and explain to them that she is actually a cool person if they bothered to get to know her. What they do is bullying, and it should be tolerated. Stand up for what's right. I know that you are being a great friend, and your friend is lucky. I don't think telling her that she is being made fun of is necessary. It will only hurt her feelings. You can totally stop the bullying by standing up her. :]
