1. Sinead Taylor was a 15-year-old girl from South East London who was active on YouTube where she would talk about her experiences with bullying and self-harm.
2. She published two lengthy video journal entries where she described intense bullying throughout primary and secondary school, constantly being put down for not liking to do typical “girly” things.
3. A boy in her class, she said, was one of her main tormenters:
“He always used to put me down. I can’t even remember what he said but he just made me feel so awful that I just wanted to go home and cry - and back then I never used to cry…
People used to call me a lesbian or bisexual and they would accuse me of looking at them while they were getting changed, like they wouldn’t want to get changed in front of me.”
