Pole Dancer Bullied On Instagram
Bullying can do serious damage to a person’s confidence and self worth and it doesn’t just happen in elementary and high schools, it happens to adults as well. Take it from Polecats Manila student, Ida O. Ida posted a blog piece today that describes her latest run in with bullying from a Russian Instagramer. After posting a photo of herself doing a pole trick, Ida’s photo was reposted and tagged #fat and #ugly among other words. Pole dancers are really great at backing each other up and supporting one another no matter what their size, shape, color, gender or skill level. Bullying can be found in many forms, whether verbal or physical and has no place in the pole community. This is a reminder to all to keep negative thoughts to yourself or better yet, don’t have them in the first place. Your criticism can be the most hurtful words to another person.
