Today, my idiot boss placed an expensive order for anti-bullying banners that read: "Take a stand against bullying!" This would be fine if I didn't work in a specialized school for children in wheelchairs. FML

It's emoji. I'm kinda surprised I even knew that, with me not being "down with the kids" and all. That wouldn't have sounded so bad if I weren't sixteen.

It's just a figure of speech, surely the students at your school will recognise that and not be offended? It's kinda like how people think you can't say 'see you later' to a blind person.

Missed the edit window, darn.

I'm not saying it's a great slogan and it could probably do with being changed just because of the context it's being used in however I don't agree that it's a horrifically insensitive/offensive slogan.

Maybe it's not that bad for adults who have been living with their conditions for awhile. But these are children, and it's quite likely some of them are recently handicapped, so it might still sting.

Damn, I hope he changes it soon for something better! Although, I'm sure the kids got a good laugh about it. Most times I meet someone who has been in a wheelchair for a while they end up having a good sense of humor :)
