    I was sickened in Manchester today to see numerous people selling wristbands such as the anti-bullying and livestrong ones.
    I wear an anti-bullying wristband, a make poverty history wristband, a livestrong wristband and a self harm awareness bracelet, all for a reason, not for fashion!
    I just refuse to wear anything like them. Because if we all wore symbols of everything we believed in, it would all get very troublesome.

    I notice you don't wear a poppy... does that mean you disrespect war victims?

    I notice you don't wear a pink ribbon, does that mean you don't care about cancer?

    I see you don't wear a small bear badge, does that mean you prefer children being in poverty?



    And so on. Nobody needs an outward symbol to prove their inward beliefs.

    True, but there are things I believe in more than others, and I wish to support those causes more than others, as I can't afford to support everything

    Try getting the tie-on ones. I was going to order one of those, because my wrists are ridiculously skinny. I settled for the clip up one..hasn't fallen off toooo much.

    I'm all for people showing their alligence (sp?) to a good cause but surely wearing an anti-bullying band might (mistakenly) make bullies think you're a soft touch and ripe to be bullied? Just a thought
