Bullied for being Catholic...? - December 6th 2016, 05:30 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I come from a super traditional family and I've been naturally Catholic all my life. I'm quite happy with it, but my classmates aren't. I come from a school that's mostly atheist and progressive and it was all fine until I changed high schools. Everyone's awful! I've been told to be raped by a bunch of lesbians, to shoot myself because I would make everyone happier, that even Jesus would say I'm a slut... a substitute even threw out my rosary when I accidentally took it out of my backpack while finding a book! The thing was my grandmom's too...
The point is that I'm SICK of having all this happening! I've been getting death threats too and no one ever believes me. I'm terrified! Look, I'm really sorry if my beliefs are offensive to you, but I'm a 17 year old girl that plays video games day and night. I'm not hurting anyone! My classmates have started leaving notes about how I'm anyone needs autistic whore that needs to get stabbed since last week... Please help, I'm really scared!!!

I am really sorry people are treating you like this. There is nothing wrong with being Catholic as long as you are happy with it, and you said your are. What matters most is your happiness; not what your classmates think.

You said people are leaving notes and doing other things to you. Do you still have those notes? From here on out, keep any and all evidence. You can even take pictures or get out your phone and start recording if you want. That way, you have proof.

You said you're fearing your safety and that is serious. I suggest taking your evidence to the police since no one in your school is taking you seriously. It might be worth seeing if you can transfer to another school so you have a clean slate.
