sc 161 On The Subject of Bullying.

March 28, 2011

Soon after recording this, Toppie reluctantly decided not to publish it.  It seemed too much — too emotional — too unfocused — too personal.  Toppie says, “it ended up being more about me than it was about the string of suicides of youths who were either gay or perceived to be gay back in late 2010, and at the time, that just wasn’t what I wanted.”  For whatever it may be worth, here now is that recording.  It’s about bullying in schools.  Toppie hopes that it makes at least a little bit of sense.

The show art is an old photo of Toppie and his fellow nerd friends including (looking right into the camera on the far right) “Sonny,” who was bullied more than any human being should ever have to endure.
