i was bullied as a child by a guy on the bus, every day, slap to the back of my head. finally one day i got fed up, i go to my parents, youl never guess what they told me to do.

PUNCH THE LITTLE SNOT RIGHT IN THE FACE.

problem solved, forever, never had a god damn problem with a bully again, all the way through high school. why? cause i was a bigger bully? NO

because the solution to the problem has been the same for the last 100 000 years that humans have been here... if someone hits you, you dont puss out and run away. YOU farkING HIT THEM BACK ITS CALLED SELF DEFENSE AND ANYONE WHO TRYS TO TELL YOU DIFFERENT IS MENTALLY DEFUNCT.

farking defend yourselfs.

Was bullied in Jr High. Particularly in my math class where the teacher ignored it. I was surrounded by these girls who bullied me. One day they wrote on my back--I had a light jacket on over a sweater and didn't feel it--used a permanent marker to write a crude remark there. Teacher didn't care.
Then one day they waited after school and circled me and threatened to beat me up.
I really don't know what brought an end to it all but I made a bunch of friends in H.S. and things got better.
I wasn't really shocked to hear that the leader of the bully girls, after high school, drove drunk and got one of the other girls killed in a car accident and the little b**ch didn't care and only complained about her car and loss of license. (oh, and she didn't get into any real trouble for it--just not able to drive for awhile). She really was an awful human being.

If they had been black this would have been "gang activity".

untaken_name: No one pointed out to you that he obviously liked you? That's textbook.


I was a chubby, buck-toothed, four-eyed nerd. Of course the thought never occurred to me. I didn't get "cute" until high school.

He wasn't my only tormentor, just the one who happened to be around when I finally had enough.

The best thing to do, when being bullied, it to say: "Stop. Don't do that. You'll give me an erection."

That could be added incentive for some bullies

AverageAmericanGuy: Bullying is not something you can just "get over". It becomes part of who you are and your outlook towards others is shaped by your bad experiences.

I wasn't bullied. Rather, I was a bully, in the broadest sense of the term. I've held many kids by their ankles and dunked them in the toilet. I've stolen their books and locked their lockers with padlocks. It's something that I've grown out of, but I still carry around a little bit of that in me.

Telling someone to get over it is pretty callous. It negates their experiences and feelings. Rather, we should find ways to accept it as something that happened in the past and move on, accepting that there are scars that may never fully heal over.


That just means you're farked up in the head. It's sad that whatever home environment you grew up in made you think it was okay to treat other people like trash, but you don't get to tell other people how to deal with it. Let me guess: You were molested as a kid, Dad was an alcoholic that beat your mother, you never got any attention, blah blah blah? You're just a horrible person that lacks the mental ability to think: "This.. this isn't right. I see the harm it does, and I cannot let the bad seed spread". None of that is any excuse. You just need professional help.

AverageAmericanGuy: My family? Oh, that's easy. "Stupid, worthless, no good, goddamned, free loading son-of-a-biatch! Retarded, big mouth, know-it-all asshole jerk!" "You forgot ugly, lazy, and disrespectful!" "Shut up, biatch! Go fix me a turkey pot pie!" "What about you, Dad?" "fark you!" "No, Dad, what about you?" "fark you!" "No, Dad, what about you?!" "fark you!"
grinnel: Is that for real?

Thunderpipes: No such thing as bullying, just weak kids and strong kids. Weak ones need to learn their place early. The world needs ditch diggers too.


Yep, that is true. Really without all those 'strong' bullies who would we have to dig our ditches (once they realise their dreams of the NFL will never happen and they haven't made any other plans)

bacongood: Most people are the bully and bullied.


So much this!
What is that? CSB time? Oh ok, but only because all the cool kids are doing it.

When I was a little kid I was bloody little. Poor pasty white Pom in Australia, no interest in sport, ADHD (only no one gave it the label back then), a love of reading ALL THE TIME and an absolute confusion as to why anyone would choose not to be smart.

Anyhew...
At about 11 years of age I started having run ins with a kid who had been held back a year. He saw me as a nice target to demonstrate his superiority and as I lived just round the corner and caught the same bus from the same bus stop it made things unpleasant.
I was not looking forward to having to put up with him on the school camp (an actual hike with packs through the wilderness for several days, we had cool teachers). So, I 'turned the tables' by which I mean I became the bully (I didn't recognise it at the time, but that is what happened).
So I provoked a schoolyard altercation which I knew was going to result in me getting a beating, but I made sure I had timed it for a shift change of the teacher on yard duty. I provoked him by being a smart arse, belittling him, telling him how weak he was and how even I could hand him a real beating because even though he was bigger than the rest of us he was a bed-wetting pansy.

Funnily enough, me saying this in front of everyone DID provoke him. I stood so I could see the staffroom door and waited for it to open before I stepped close enough to him for him to take a swing. His first hit was a black eye for me but I didn't raise my hands, I bit back the tears and told him that was soft and if he couldn't hit me enough to hurt then there was no point me starting to hit him and that he could have one more free shot before I broke his nose. He started going windmill insane on me, punches landing everywhere as I laughed and told him he was weak, all the time watching the teacher who had just realised what was happening and was running towards us.
As soon as she was close enough I changed tone. "What is wrong? Why are you upset? There is no need or us to fight, whatever it is I am sure we can work it out." and so on, he was too far gone to realise anything was wrong and all the teacher heard was me being reasonable and trying to de-escalate the situation. Add to that the fact I had not raised my hands to retaliate and I was all set to come out smelling of roses. Which is what happened, I stuck to my story of having said something rude to him (got to be believable), but that I had then apologised and tried to make amends with him. He got a 2 week suspension (which included the camp) and I learned a couple of things. First that I can take a beating, prior to this I had always been scared of the physical stuff and secondly I learned that I could game the system.

Years later I also learned that this kid had been kept back because he was so badly bullied by the kids in his own year. I also learned that he was a chronic bed-wetter as a result of the bullying (no wonder my taunts worked). So he bullied be because he was a victim himself. These days I am torn, I still love telling the story (and I still feel the visceral joy of my young self when I realised I had won) but I do feel bad for him and all he had gone through, I am sure what I did was not helpful for his development and I wonder how his parents coped finding out their poor bullied little boy was now the bully.

I love the simplicity people present here. The idea that there is 'the bully' and 'the victim'. So many fark bully threads are dressed up that way. So many parents who are sure their snowflake is fighting back in self defence and crying because they were suspended too. Sometimes, sure. But so far as I can see that is a rare case, usually both sides have their share of faults and the classic Hollywood drama idea of a bully who chooses a random person for no reason and who keeps it going for no reason, I don't really see it (but then perhaps I have a more honest vision of my own childhood than many people, I have certainly looked back at it critically rather than just sitting back and saying, do you remember when).
 
2012-10-10 11:06:42 PM  
oh, and as an odd aside I do wonder if the ability to overcome a 'reasonable' (what ever that is) level of bullying actually helps you to deal with the psychopaths of the workforce and in your apartment complex or wherever else you meet them as an adult.
I certainly credit my ability to find ways to overcome, ignore or deal with schoolyard teasing with my ability to cope with the arsehole bosses I have occasionally had.

I think these hit the nail on the head. Conceptualizing "bullying" as something that is going to just go away is as naive as the "war on drugs". People are going to have crappy lives that lead them to be crappy to other people. Learning how to deal with that (from both sides) is one of the most important things you can do as a kid, because life is going to be a lot harder as an adult if you don't. Raising awareness (which seems to be the in-thing in current US society) is a feel-good idea that everyone can do but accomplishes very little.

Fark_Guy_Rob: Life is full of injustice, learning to deal with it seems healthy to me. I'm not saying we should necessarily encourage bullying; but I'm also not truthfully convinced it doesn't serve a purpose.


I kinda see your point. The trouble is that by "dealing with it," you let it continue. If people always stood up to that kind of shiat, the shiat would end.

The first people to stand up would be beaten down, of course.

padraig: doglover: You gotta realize some people are literally asking for it. They do everything possible to piss everyone off all the time, and they play the martyr card when everyone's pissed at them.

That's sadly true. My 11-yo stepson is regularly bullied, but frankly, it's his own damn fault. He's got absolutely no filter between his brain and his mouth, he has absolutely no social intelligence, and think that if he just says whatever he thinks, people will simply see the light of day, and realise he's right, and if he's right, they can't be mad at him. Mix that with a very egocentric point of view, a very short temper, and an emotional immaturity that makes him sometimes react like a 5-yo, and people very quickly become very pissed at him, and he lose all chances to make friends. You see that every time he gets in a new environnement (new class, club, camp, etc...), where his relations to the whole group deteriorates in a matter of days.
So, yeah, I can understand when those kind of people gets bullied.
But some are bullied only because they are different (gay, geeky, ugly...)

I don't know, I put up with a lot of shiat in my younger school days, but two incidents stand out in my mind. One was in I think 1st grade, another girl was being a prissy biatch and picking on me some (don't recall specifics), and I walked away and was angry when she followed and asked what my problem was. To which I answered 'YOU'. She apologized.

The other time, a boy who sat behind me in the orchestra (maybe sixth grade) kept poking me with his violin bow and harassing me over time. Finally I turned around and was just going to poke him back, only he turned his head right into the pointy part of my bow and basically got soft-stabbed in the temple, right next to his eye. Looked like it really hurt, and he got pissed... but stopped bothering me after that. So accidental excessive retaliation took care of that one...

You got off lucky with such minor bullying. What about a kid who gets repeatedly punched in the stomach by someone? Or a kid who is constantly tripped? And what about kids who for whatever reason lack the self esteem or strength or whatever to stand up to their bullies?

sandi_fish: DontMakeMeComeBackThere: CSB time.

My son was harassed by a kid in middle school that told him (every day) at lunch that he was going to beat him up after school. I tried to tell my son that since the kid never followed through with the threat that he should just ignore the kid, or laugh it off. Didn't work, neither did telling a teacher about the incident, and my son started dreading going to school and started hiding during lunch so the kid couldn't find him. I stepped in. I had a meeting with the principal, and told her she had three days (it was a Wednesday) to stop the situation (not talk with the kid, or his parents, but fully stop the situation). If, come Monday, the kid in question so much as approached my son, I had given my son permission to beat the living shiat out of the kid (my words exactly), and keep beating him until physically restrained by somebody. The principle was shocked beyond words, and haltingly told me that my son wold be suspended if he did that. I informed her that I would take vacation from work for that same amount of time and go to Disneyland as a reward for my son's bravery in stopping a situation that the school administration apparently had no ability to stop on their own.

My son never saw the kid again.

SSB (Similar story bro)


I'm just waiting for some school administrator to have some "if you get suspended, you can't use it as a vacation" and tie it to community service or pseudo-probation to keep parents from undermining their authority.

Mock - I'm sure it happened some but to the best of my knowledge, bullies mostly got punished back when I went through middle/Jr. high/high school. We also had a weird system: the old high school from the 1950s or so was converted into ONLY 9th grade when the district out grew it. So Freshmen were separated from the other three grades for a whole year. I honestly think it helped a lot because you didn't have the seniors around to screw with the most vulnerable grade, and going on to sophomore year was probably a lot easier for everyone.

I got some verbal bullying too and there was one guy in that 9th grade building who would NOT leave me alone (verbal harassment, fairly malicious)... until I left him an anonymous pretty creepy poem in his locker. I don't remember much of a problem with him after that. Red fountain pen ink on edge-burned parchment, good times.

Other than that, I don't recall major incidents the rest of the time. It also helped a lot that the new principal when I got to the other building implemented his own policy - people caught fighting WOULD be getting police records out of it. The only fight I ever saw after that was during midterms when there were no teachers around.
