Note

Joking vs Bullying

What To Do

Joking is generally defined as an action intended to be humorous to

all parties involved. Joking, unlike bullying, includes objectively

inoffensive remarks or actions with lighthearted intentions. Bullying

is generally defined as an offensive remark/action intended to inflict

discomfort to an individual victim or a target group. Like community

harassment, bullying is considered conduct that is so offensive, severe

or pervasive that it interferes with an individual’s participation in the

community.  Bullying may include but is not limited to verbal abuse,

use of degrading language, or intimidation. Bullying can occur face

to face, in a group setting, through social media or email, or through

gossip. The sentence, he has a big nose, I bet he can smell me fart

from a mile away!” can be considered a joke or an act of bullying

depending on the context. Is the target sensitive about their so-called

big nose”? If so, this can be considered an act of bullying. If you’re

unsure about how the target may react to a remark, DON'T SAY IT!

 

If you or another partner/member of our community experiences any harassment or unacceptable behavior listed below, please get in touch with a Partner Manager or reach out directly to the Dreadnots Coffee LLC administration by emailing dreadnotscoffee@gmail.com with proof of the issues you are experiencing. We will ensure that the issue will be sorted out on your behalf. If you would like to remain anonymous, please let us know, and we will be happy to respect that wish.
