Banter, or Bullying?


Banter is the exchange of teasing in a good-humoured way. However, banter can be easily misinterpreted and manipulated into bullying and harassment. It is important to recognise the difference between when banter becomes bullying. For example, when banter is used to victimise or insult someone, it can be deemed as bullying; especially if it is targeted or ongoing. If a person feels uncomfortable with banter, their responses may not display this feeling and therefore may feel bullied.
