"Stop Online Bullying" Cartoon Contest

 From Cartoon Home Network International.

Cartoon Home Network International launches its' third humanitarian initiative "Stop Online Bullying... The Universal Message of  Solidarity".

What is Bullying? 
Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict. 
Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. 
Rationalizations of such behavior sometimes include differences of social class, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, behavior, body language, personality, reputation, lineage, strength, size, or ability. If bullying is done by a group, it is called mobbing. 
Perhaps one of the most important types of bullying that we suffer from is Online bullying.
Online bullying is bullying carried out through the internet or mobile devices. Online bullying is also sometimes called cyber bullying.
Online bullying can include:
-sending insulting or threatening messages
-posting unkind messages or inappropriate images on social networking sites
