Hi,

Iknow these things are really annoying, but this is important.

This year I'm starting my GCSE Citizenship Course and I'm doing a campaign to change the severity of punishment for homophobic bullying. I believe that it should be much more severe. In my school, if someone made a racist comment then they would get a detention and if it gets very extreme then they can get expelled. However, if someone made a homophobic comment then it would general be ignored. Sometimes they may get a warning but that is all.

Both comments are bullying and should be punished, in my view.

Please may you go and voice your opinion in the poll that is at the top of my Profile page. It is totally anonymous.

Thank you,
