According to a study from the Journal of Adolescent Health (pdf) of nearly 3,800 middle school students (grades 6-8):

  • 11% were victims of bullying within two months of the survey (victims only).
  • 4% were perpetrators of bullying within two months of the survey (bullies only).
  • An additional 7% were both victims and perpetrators of bullying within two months of the survey (bully/victims).
  • Girls were more likely than boys to be victims or bully/victims.
  • Nearly half of victims did not know the identity of the one bullying them.

      This information is definitely interesting, and of course very sad for obvious reasons…but I’m curious as to whether there’s a visible connection between cyber bullying and the attraction of viewing online porn?
