Real "bullying" isn't even illegal. I can, and do, call anyone I want a dumbshit offline and I don't get arrested for it. What makes you think this will pass?

Thank you for the link.

Hot Damn 2 years?
Motherfuck

What the fuck, isn't "cyberbullying" the exact same shit as IRL bullying? Except without the risk of physical harm. I'm not saying I want them to make a bill about that too but, what the fuck is the difference?

(6) Sixty percent of mental health professionals who responded to the Survey of Internet Mental Health Issues report having treated at least one patient with a problematic Internet experience in the previous five years; 54 percent of these clients were 18 years of age or younger.
At least one in five years?!?!
1?
What the fuck.

How about passing a law that makes you take a very difficult test before you become a parent. So that your kids don't turn out fail and shoot themselves because of some dick on the internet.
