11 Year Old Ohio Boy Tyler Wilson Bullied And Has His Arm Broken Because He Joined The Cheerleading Squad (Video)

11 year old Tyler Wilson’s Mom is MAD AS HELL and for good reason.  Tyler who is in the 6th grade had his arm broken Aug. 31 by a footballer-playing classmate at Glenwood Middle School after he and another boy began fighting with Tyler and calling him a “sissy” because Tyler joined the cheerleading squad.  Kristy Wilson, Tyler’s mother wants her son’s assailants to be prosecuted. “I want the criminal charges because I want this kid to know it’s not okay.” And that’s just what’s happening; the assailants now face assault charges.

Now remember this is not about Tyyler being gay.  He’s only 11 years old and most probably isn’t  This is about him being stereotyped as being gay and being bullied for it.

Tyler saysIt feels horrible that they can’t accept me for who I am. It’s my choice. If I want to be a cheerleader, I’m going to be a cheerleader. … I’m going to keep going. I want to make a lifestyle out of it.” And because Tyler is the coolest cat around: “I think it’s kind of sad because they won’t accept me for who I am. I think they’re jealous…that I get to hang around a bunch of girls.”

So they next time you run into some Tea bagging Republican who says that there’s no need for bullying laws just tell them about Tyyler.  If I had my way the assailants parents would be prosecuted along with their children on the same charges.  Make that a law and watch how quickly school bullying stops.

  1. Not sure why this story is posted here. But, it appears Tyler likes females and he should be applauded for that.

    Congrats Tyler, hope you get hooked up with many of those girls:)

  2. Actually its posted because Tyler was stereotyped by the bullies as being gat because he joined cheerleading and thats why he was a victim of violence.

    I even state "Now remember this is not about Tyler being gay. He's only 11 years old and most probably isn't"

  3. The fight Tyler got into had nothing to do with him being a cheerleader or being gay. It was just a fight and this kid and his mom are making this a much bigger deal than it really is. This kid has not been bullied at all. Fact is that he was teased one time about being a cheerleader and beat up the kid that teased him.
