    the right winger, climate deniers hate her here in Australia 

    Same here in Sweden. The "She should stay in school!" crowd.

    That sucks.  Probably here as well.
    All I see is nasty comments about her by grown men, bullying a child. 
      Not cool. But to be fair, she’s put herself into the “adult world” so I think normal criticism or credit makes sense.

    What disturbs me is the continued propping up of individuals to be hero’s. Waiting for the fall.  

    But one can not argue with how mature and brave she is being. Hope it makes a difference.

    @Thoughts_Arrive is not talking about "normal" criticism. 

    And feeling the need to post that she has put herself in a position to have to face "normal criticism" as a response to a post about people bullying her makes it come off as downplaying the hatred towards her.

    Not at all. I just have the ability to see things for what they are.

    I'm generally not a joiner or into hero worship etc., but sometimes going with a crowd can make a difference.  I'm up for this and I hope some of you are too:

    I love how she holds her won and doesn't buckle under some slick dude who thinks he's Joe Cool.  Good for her!
