YOUR WHOLE BABY CYBER BULLYING POLICY

INTRODUCTION

Your Whole Baby recognizes the importance of social media and digital platforms in our mission of gently providing education on the lifelong harms of circumcision and information on the functions and proper care of the foreskin in an effort to end infant genital cutting. However, these platforms can present opportunities for misuse in the spread of our message and for supporters of our organization to participate in communication which misrepresents us and can be viewed as cyber bullying. Your Whole Baby considers gentle and respectful communication necessary for the spread of our message.

DEFINITION

Cyber bullying is defined by stopbullying.gov as “bullying that takes place over digital devices like cell phones, computers, and tablets. Cyberbullying can occur through SMS, Text, and apps, or online in social media, forums, or gaming where people can view, participate in, or share content.
