for the queer kids who don't know their identity, they just know they're not straight and wish it were different. to all the LGBT+ kids who will grow up with this president thinking they're evil.

Differences Between Adult Bullying and Harassment Another one of the differences between bullying and harassment is that adult bullies will target anyone, even popular successful people. Adult bullies will target people they perceive as a better than tem at their job not people who are a minority or weaker than themselves
Stonewalling is a tactic commonly used by bullies to control the situation and to isolate, humiliate, and frustrate a target who attempts to resolve a conflict through reasonable discussion or negotiation. Accusing the target of mental deficiency, harassment, or even bullying, are other methods of asserting dominance, intimidating the target, and discouraging objections to mistreatment and exposure.
Keep your cool and don't give them any ammo to use against you. Whatever they do, document and report to your HR Dept. as well as your union (if you have one). Use language from the employee handbook and ALWAYS let HR know how your bully's behavior goes against this or that rule on preventing workplace violence / harassment AND how much MONEY this may cost the company. The bottom line is money. That's all your workplace cares about.
There are so many types of bullying... some are much more subtle, but just as damaging. Whenever you are being watched, followed , copied.... online by someone who is doing it to purposely harass you.... it is a form of bullying and will not be tolerated.
