Let's Talk About This Mom Who Got Brutally Bullied -- While the Bully's Kid Watched

Krechelle Carter is a grown woman with six kids under the age of six. Even though she's way past high school and handling the adult problems that come along with motherhood, she's still also dealing with catty women who
feel entitled to bully her. After a recent and horrific encounter with a stranger who judged her hair while also insinuating that she couldn't tell wither Krechelle was male or female, this mom from Australia is speaking out about the woman who shamed her -- in front of her child.

She explained on Facebook that the incident happened while she was sitting in the waiting room at her doctor's office. "An older lady turned to her daughter and asked her very loudly, 'Look at 'its' hair?! Is it a boy or a girl; atrocious, isn't it,' and nodded in my direction," Kreschelle wrote. "My throat dropped into my stomach … How could she say that so maliciously?"

Krechelle wasn't just in disbelief that someone would say something so cruel about her but she was equally upset over how one comment could make her feel so small. "I might not be one hundred percent 'conventional' but I'm a good person with a good heart," she wrote. "A small tear escaped me."

This was hardly the first time that someone has openly judged Kreschelle. She explained that she first noticed that she was "different" in elementary school and that feeling carried through high school as friends thought that her love of Harry Potter was weird. Even now as an adult, she feels people secretly laughing at her while she has the best damn time playing playing sports because she isn't very athletic but doesn't let that stop her.

When people make assumptions about Krechelle because of the way she looks or the number of children that she has, it's just teaching the next generation that bullying is acceptable both in and out of school. Krechelle is human and needs people to know that she has feelings and that they can still be hurt by your words.

"Please don't laugh at me in my shorts, I've had six children and I'm trying to get fitter, and it hurts," she wrote. "I love having fun with hair color. When you look at me like I'm odd or like I've done something wrong by dying my hair, that also hurts."

The woman who deemed it appropriate to publicly criticize her appearance, in front of her child, isn't the only one who has made a crushing comment towards Krechelle but there's still something that she needs her to know. "Bullying is bullying; no matter what age," she wrote. "Being different doesn't mean you can bully me? Being different is what makes me interesting, it's what makes me unique; it's what makes me, me."
