Sexiest peer to peer chat
Rated and slated is when boys are encouraged to be sexually active and have multiple partners and if they achieve this, they get ‘rated’ by their peers.
However, if a girl makes the same choice as the boy, she gets ‘slated’ for the same thing and bullied.
This form of bullying is very serious and the person on the receiving end may need emotional support and counselling to deal with this too.

We all have a responsibility to teach children and young people to break the barriers of being stereotyped for their gender.
We often see from a young age, children are conditioned into play with gender based toys, whether it is cars for boys and dolls for girls.
"Telling everyone in the dining hall, class, individuals, and family at community events/school events that I am gay, even going up to my parents telling them I am, and saying crude things, homophobic things."* A survey by the UK National Union of Teachers (NUT) suggests that sexual bullying is most often carried out by boys against girls, although girls are increasingly harassing girls and boys in a sexual manner.
Sexual bullying can undermine someone's dignity and safety as well as affect their emotional wellbeing and lead to depression, isolation, eating disorders and self-harming.
It is important that children and young people are educated on the issues of sexual bullying from a young age.
This education should come from the home just and school.
Sexual bullying is any behaviour which degrades someone, singles someone out by the use of sexual language, gestures or violence, and victimising someone for their appearance.
Sexual bullying is also pressure to act promiscuously and to act in a way that makes others uncomfortable.
