Homo, whore, Moroccan and Jew are children’s favourite insults

Homo, hoer (whore), Moroccan and Jew are the most often used insults in Dutch playgrounds, according to research by the Dutch academy for media and society.

The list was drawn up ahead of the publication of a new tool to allow teachers to monitor bullying and playground insults. It shows that sex and personal background are more often used by bullies rather than style of dress and hair colour, Metro says.

The list is based on interviews with teachers and will be revised when the first results of the monitor are published at the end of October. ‘We want to show the raw reality of bullying,’ NAMM director Bamber Delver told newspaper Metro.
