    Default University professor says, "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" promotes bullying.

    A Long Island University professor says "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" promotes bullying.

    There's even a book about it called "No More Bullies on the North Pole."

    Dr. Paul Friday, head of Shadyside Psychological Services, has heard the conclusions of Long Island University Professor George Giuliani's that the 1964 film about Rudolph's tribulations amounts to classic bullying.

    Millions of viewers have reviewed the evidence. So, was Rudolph bullied?

    "What they do to him is bullying especially what they're teaching the kids now as big as it is in the schools, but yes, he was definitely bullied," Audra Bamford said.

    "We just watched it the other night and I was telling my kids that's not how we treat our friends," Ronette Hillenbrand added.

    "No I don't think he's being bullied," Dr. Friday said. "I think the problem lies with Santa. He's just not hugging this poor defenseless thing."

    Professor Giuliani says the message that Rudolph's uniqueness must have a useful purpose for Rudolph to be accepted is the wrong message for our children.

    "I think our society perhaps has really gone one couch too far," Dr. Friday said. "I think the idea that you can take something as innocent and as nice as 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer' and pull some kind of psychological or sociological pathology and place it on there - I think this guy has too much time on his hands."

    the other reindeers are a bunch of pricks - this is true. But Rudolph is the hero. No one gives a shit about the others.

    Is this for fucking real?

    All anyone cared about was Rudolph. The other reindeer didn't mean a thing. They were jerks and Rudolph shut them all up by prevailing in the end.

    Kids don't even dissect it that far. It's just a fun song.

    This isn't new. I heard some comedian talk about this at some point. It's silly, but it's true in the story. All of the other reindeer laughed and called him names, and wouldn't play with him because he was different.

    I think the deeper point is to embrace that which makes you unique, cause in the end it sets you above the rest. Eventually others will see that.

    I'm gonna start calling myself "Professor". Apparently being one involves saying stupid shit and passing it off as fact.

    I can do that. Been doing that with women my whole fuckin' life.

    Er, well, I hate to break it to you, Mister Professor, but a great number of fairy stories involve bullying ("The Ugly Duckling"; "Cinderella", etc etc) - and the usual resolution is that the victim triumphs over their adversaries, hence the reason why they're also known as morality tales: they teach us about how we should and shouldn't behave - that's the whole bloody point of them!!!

    This song came from a different era.
    Yeah, Rudolph was teased and shunned but emphasis on 'bullying' wasn't like that all those years ago.

    I'm glad this professor has nothing else to do but comment on a cartoon.

    This story is on the local news right now and I find it disturbing. After forty some odd years, this wonderful holiday tradition is suddenly a bad thing. If it hasn't aired yet this season, I hope when it does it pulls in the biggest ratings ever from this guy bringing attention to it. And I heard atleast five different versions of the song on the radio at work today... nobody got beat up at the end of the day.
