Would You Take a Stand Against Bullying?

I just read the most amazing article. Jennifer McKendrick, a photographer came across some teen girls bullying other students on Facebook. She was scheduled to take their senior pictures, but cancelled it. Her response was “If you are ugly on the inside, I’m sorry but I won’t take your photos to make you look pretty on the outside … I simply don’t want to photograph ugly people.”

I absolutely love this! It takes guts to take a stand against bullying and I applaud Jennifer for doing so.


As a tall teen, I got my share of teasing and taunting mostly from short guys. During high school, one guy called my boyfriend “Paul Bunyan” and referred to me as “Babe” – the blue ox. At times, it took all of my self-control to not flatten this dork. Good thing I have a peaceable personality.

A lot of tall teen girls take a lot of ribbing because they look different and as most guys haven’t reached their full height yet. Emotionally, it can be pretty devastating when the teasing won’t stop or escalates.

I have seen kids that are being harassed totally flip out, withdraw from society and turn to destructive habits like drugs, alcohol and cutting. Please take a stand against bullying. It should never be tolerated!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic and how you have handled bullying.

Case in Point

On Twitter I saw Tamu, a tall lady say she was having a hard time finding an affordable pair of sexy high heels in a size 12. I offered to help her find some shoes. After a brief correspondence, I found she wanted some very high heels in a nude color to match her skin tone. Immediately, I set out to help her since I also wear a size 12 shoe and realize sometimes it’s just a huge pain to find great looking shoes without trying them on. I directed Tamu to our special women’s shoe section as we already have a special page with nude colored shoe options. I added a few more choices for her and she found a pair she craved and placed her order.
Today on Twitter, she thanked me saying, “@tallclothingmal Thank you for helping me find my shoes. I love them!!!” and showed me the picture. Don’t her legs look fabulous in those shoes?
