The kid refusing to fight back is not that unusual.  My oldest son went through this exact same thing, only nothing ever changed because no video to prove his story.  In fact, I am surprised they aren't going after the kid filming since filming in bathrooms is a big no-no and then still suspend the kid getting his butt handed to him for participating in the fight.

I went to a predominantly white school and stuff like this was always happening.  The only thing that changed is that everyone has a cell phone recording it, and parents need another reason to be outraged for the day.

Speaking strictly from my own experiences in middle and high school, the only thing that prevented further harassment from the fighting types was a concerted effort on my part to hurt them badly enough the first time that consideration was required before engaging in additional physical violence.  Not sayin' I didn't get my ass kicked, because I did. Just sayin' I usually only got my ass kicked once.

No intervention required on the part of parents, school administration or the police.

I hate watching this because I couldn't stomach it if it happened to my son.  If it did, I'd have to do the same to the other boy's father (for raising such an asshole) and then pour sulfuric acid down his gullet.

I got news for you kid, if you lay down and take it, every asshole in school is going to pound the shiat out of you. Why? Because you allow it to happen. You need to man up and stop being such a farking little pussy. If the bullies know you're going to go apeshiat on them if they fark with you, they will leave you alone. If you lay down with your ass in the air your going to get raped in it. You can be the victim or you can farking man up and stop getting your ass beat. Yes, the kid that did it should be put in jail, and expelled, and the kids that just sat there filming it should get suspended for just watching and not helping you, but in the end, you are by yourself. Walk softly, don't fark with people, go about your business, but make it clear that you won't stand for people to do this, and will fight back. Otherwise, you're destined to be a human punching bag.

Not fighting back is a sign of intelligence, as walking away probably keeps him from getting seriously hurt by this gang of canadians. Unfortunately for this poor soul, the system forces him to endure the agression for years and years.  Seriously, bullied kids have it worst than most adults.  Once you grow up you can complain, change jobs, sue, threaten to sue etc, etc.

This.  I also went to a predominantly white school (one black kid in the 12 years I attended school) and fights happened about every other week, boys and girls.  The girls laid a harder beatdown the boys did, usually.

A few points that are consistent in every bullying case I've ever seen:
1. The parents of the kid that threw the punches are just as disgusting and vile as the bully himself.  If you wonder where he learned his craft from, it's his parents.
2. Nancy boy needs to learn to stick up for himself.  He's only proven that he can take a beating.  Get some aikido/jujitsu lessons.  Twice the damage, half the effort.  When your attacker is recovering from compound fractures, he'll be reminded to not fark with you again.
3. Rest assured, the school will do one of two things:  Ignore the situation completely, or punish the wrong child.

Now everyone knows that bully can't throw a punch. What a kitty kat...

Young Aisa should take comfort in knowing that he can take the douche bag's best shots, and not go down. Kid tries it again, Aisa kicks his ass, unless like most bullies he has a back up crew of douche bags ready to beat down a lone child.

Seriously. I got my ass kicked all the time. I was teased and harassed for being a fat kid, smart, and nerdy. (Yes, the anime and video games might have helped). I couldn't fight back because the other kids were fit and much faster. They'd punch me and run off, and then laugh when I'd give chase.

Got fed up. Put cayenne pepper in a little container, got off the bus first, turned around and threw the pepper in the face of my long-time assailant, and then beat his ass while he was stuck in the doorway. First time I ever won a fight. It was also, coincidentally, the last time I ever *had* to fight. The assholes left me alone after that. I couldn't best them with physical prowess, so I had to even the odds and fight dirty.

Of course, this was 1993. It was a different time.

You might want to re-read that.

I was not Rambo delivering righteous beat-downs to the big bad bullies. I was a scrawny little dork biting, scratching, kicking and generally just trying to make them work for it. I can't say I've ever "won" a fight, but most of the kids that picked fights with me didn't do it again. To be fair though I don't think anyone wins a fight, either you get beat up or you're a barely evolved ape that has to hit people to feel better. No winners there.

If you want to take that as some kind of "internet tough guy" statement feel free but I will feel just as free to assume you're an idiot.

I'm proof that some do stand up. It can just take time.

I was bullied pretty consistently from age 7 through my sophomore year of high school. Same guy. Teachers never intervened, and my mom's answer was always to ignore it. He was always taller than I was, mean as a rattlesnake and dumb as a hammer.

Well, it continued to high school. Early sophomore year, the school football coach saw me working out some frustrations on a punching bag, and invited me to try out for the school boxing club. I made the squad. Varsity. I may not have the fastest footwork in the world or the fastest hands, but I can hit like a Mack truck.

May of that year, my bully made his reappearance. We'd been in different classes all year, I hadn't seen him in about four months. He cornered me in the weight room, and demanded twenty bucks or he'd kick my ass.

Something snapped in my head. I told him to go ahead if he wanted, but he wasn't getting my twenty. I was saving up to go to Jamboree that summer- I needed that 20.

He hit me once- a crap shot that hit right where neck meets shoulder. I hit him twice. One was a straight shot to the gut, the other at the angle of the jaw. I heard a crack.

I found out later, much later, that I gave him a hairline jaw fracture. Making it better, he got expelled the next day- the school's discipline board was meeting to expel him for drug possession/dealing and theft.

Do many stand up? No. This one did, though.

It's probably safe to assume everyone else on fark just got beat up regularly and that's the end of the story.

/I went to a elementary school in a low-income area with abut 60% minority population and I struggle to recall any incidents of "bullying" like i see in TV and PSAs... fights but not usually bullying. I remember generally getting along with people. Maybe we were too young at that point.

Yeah, I was getting the crap beat out of me by a kid daily too. My uncle told me to walk around with my Algebra book all day, and the first time I saw him, just whack him in the face with it as hard as I could. That one hit farked him up because he was looking into his locker when it came. Never a problem after that.

2013-02-15 11:07:35 AM
As a father of grade schoolers, although we have avoided any bullying this far, it is a concern.

I think if my kid was beat up or continually picked on, my first stop would be the principal next would be the police. Next I would find out who the parents are (including following the bully home I needed). I would confront, threaten if needed, the ass-bags and tell them if anything happens, I will be back. If it continues I would be back at the kids house to follow through on my threat. Additionally, I would make a poster of the kid and publicly sham him/her. If the school or parents had an issue with the shaming I would confront them (on camera) asking why they are so worried about protecting a bully, but not the victims of such bullying.

I wasn't picked on, so I don't expect my kids to be picked on... kids seem to walk the same line the parents walked.

Bigger kids tried to pick on me in school. I just stared at them and told them to go for it or shut up and walk away.
No one ever even took a swing. I don't think I scared them off, but I'm glad providing them the greenlight seemed to take the fun out of it.
 
2013-02-15 11:11:09 AM
I think it's exemplary that this kid refused to stoop to violence.

It took me along time to figure that out but now I walk the path of righteousness, you know, like Kung Fu except without all the messy auto-erotic asphyxiation part because that's just passive aggressive towards maids and cleaning staff.
 
2013-02-15 11:11:31 AM
If that kid would've fought back, all the other boys would've ganged up on him.  Better to take a beating from one kid than five I guess.

Also didn't go to a school where bullying or fights happened often.  Maybe half a dozen fights in my four years of HS, all fair one on one contests where both people were into it.  2000 kids in the school too.  But it was all-white and upper middle class, so that helps.

I talked it out once.   I grabbed the guy when he wasn't expecting it and quietly said some words.  The next day he wanted to be my friend :-D

The words were really advice.  Stop, or else.  The "or else" wasn't "I'm going to tell on you".

You say the right thing looking the guy straight in the eyes and sometimes, they will back down.  Some other guys chased him around trying to beat him up, but apparently he was quick.  I think I subconsciously told him, "I'm not going to chase you, I'm going to wait"


However... Some people are psychopaths.  You can see it in their eyes.  School is prison. Just do your best to stay alive.  If someone shoulders you in the hall, you better have the balls to keep walking because that person is trying to pick a fight.   It's really the only time in your life when criminals and honest people are forced together.

Bullying is an evolutionary/biological imperative. It's a way for the strong to weed out the weak from the gene pool (or for the weak to find the strength to fight back and become one of the strong). If the bullying were carried to its logical conclusions, these weaklings would be destroyed and they wouldn't pollute the gene pool.  Females see the dominance of the strong ("bullies") and want to mate with them, thus producing a stronger offspring.

Mr.BobDobalita: Not to be mr tough guy... but that kid doing the beating will continue to do the same thing only as he grows into a man will actually be capable of REAL damage...     I vote for a bullet to the head to save everyone abuse and time and money.


Maybe, maybe not.  At some point he might to pick on the wrong kid and get a farkme-no-farkyou ass kicking.  Lots of bullies learn to be civil that way.

A Shambling Mound: Speaking strictly from my own experiences in middle and high school, the only thing that prevented further harassment from the fighting types was a concerted effort on my part to hurt them badly enough the first time that consideration was required before engaging in additional physical violence.  Not sayin' I didn't get my ass kicked, because I did. Just sayin' I usually only got my ass kicked once.

No intervention required on the part of parents, school administration or the police.


So like, prison?

Electromax: Quigs: Ever notice in these Fark threads, you never find a story where someone got their ass beat and that was the end of it? There's always some made-up revenge story where they came out on top.

It's probably safe to assume everyone else on fark just got beat up regularly and that's the end of the story.

/I went to a elementary school in a low-income area with abut 60% minority population and I struggle to recall any incidents of "bullying" like i see in TV and PSAs... fights but not usually bullying. I remember generally getting along with people. Maybe we were too young at that point.
//They did call the cops one time when a homeless dude stuck his dick through the chainlink fence on the playground. that's all I got.


It was a rough time for me too. Sorry about that.

waterrockets: ChopperCharles: Seriously. I got my ass kicked all the time. I was teased and harassed for being a fat kid, smart, and nerdy. (Yes, the anime and video games might have helped). I couldn't fight back because the other kids were fit and much faster. They'd punch me and run off, and then laugh when I'd give chase.

Got fed up. Put cayenne pepper in a little container, got off the bus first, turned around and threw the pepper in the face of my long-time assailant, and then beat his ass while he was stuck in the doorway. First time I ever won a fight. It was also, coincidentally, the last time I ever *had* to fight. The assholes left me alone after that. I couldn't best them with physical prowess, so I had to even the odds and fight dirty.

Of course, this was 1993. It was a different time.

Charles.

Yeah, I was getting the crap beat out of me by a kid daily too. My uncle told me to walk around with my Algebra book all day, and the first time I saw him, just whack him in the face with it as hard as I could. That one hit farked him up because he was looking into his locker when it came. Never a problem after that.

These days I'd be in jail, I guess.


see? the teacher was right... Algebra is useful in real life.

I think if my kid was beat up or continually picked on, my first stop would be the principal next would be the police. Next I would find out who the parents are (including following the bully home I needed). I would confront, threaten if needed, the ass-bags and tell them if anything happens, I will be back. If it continues I would be back at the kids house to follow through on my threat. Additionally, I would make a poster of the kid and publicly sham him/her. If the school or parents had an issue with the shaming I would confront them (on camera) asking why they are so worried about protecting a bully, but not the victims of such bullying.

I wasn't picked on, so I don't expect my kids to be picked on... kids seem to walk the same line the parents walked.

Ummm...I wouldn't threatened the bully (okay maybe I would), I would threatened the bully's parents...including mom....just putting it out there that juvenile bullies are bullies because they aren't challenged on being a bully by adults.

Oh, I would also sue the hell out of the school, the principal individually, and the bully's family.

Again, my kids aren't being bullied (nor are they bullies), so this is all ITG stuff at this point, but I know I wouldn't just take it or just sit back and let the school resolve the situation.

I did have a very unfortunately interaction with a dog owner after her dog attacked mine while I was walking him. After a few well placed kicks that dog ran home with his tail between his legs. I will defend what is mine. :-)

Really, why would ANY parent tell their kid it is O.K. to just stand there and take a beating?  That's stupid.  If he'd stood up for himself I'd say he'd have been a pretty fair match for the punk that started it.


Exactly.  I've told my son from day one that he has the right to defend himself and that he should always fight back.  I told him that he may get suspended from school, and that's okay, but he won't get in trouble at home unless he started it.

in HS a kid tried to knock my books out of my hand (shouldering i think someone called it), but what he didn't realize is that i saw him coming and tightened my grip so his books went flying. Apparently, he did not appreciate my ingenuity, and pursued me to the stairs (where i was headed to go to my next period downstairs). I stopped at the top of the stairs, turned my head slightly so i could see him coming, and just a split second before he reached me (punch in motion), i stepped to the side and helped him down the stairs. never bothered me after that (i wonder why).

I love that the bully's girlfriend is there to comfort him after things went so horribly wrong.

Hell, I went to a solid, all male private school. When the geeks and smart guys got bullied, we got creative. I helped a friend of mine build what amounted to a stun gun from batteries and capacitors, one guy carried a decent set of homemade nunchaku (and practiced until he was pretty good) and it was not uncommon for a bully's floppy disc to "mysteriously" get erased the day before a paper was due.

Not always. In college, some asshole parked to the left of my car, but  diagnoally, so that the front of his vehicle was half in the spot to the left, and the rear of his vehicle was behind mine. I was stuck until the person in the spot in front of me came and pulled out, so I could go forward and leave. Before I did, I keyed the shiat out of the asshole's car. Only time I've ever keyed someone, and the guy deserved much worse.

I didn't see any bullying.  All I saw was assault and battery and it should be treated accordingly.

When I was 13, I was 6'1", 185 lbs, bigger and stronger than most adults, and surprisingly, a smaller kid tried to bully me.  It's called the "big man's dilemma".  Get picked on by a smaller kid, fight back and you're the bully, take it and you're a pussy.  I tolerated him for a while until he started getting very aggressive one day.  I grabbed him by the throat, lifted him off his feet and held him up against a wall.  I told him if he ever even looked at me funny again he was going to find out how strong I really was.  I let him go and he staggered off.  He never came anywhere close to me again and no one else ever gave me a hard time after that either.

My son had a similar experience.  A "friend" continually harassed and bullied him until one day he's had enough and attack him.  It took three other kids to pull him off.  No suspensions issued as the other kid had a moment of clarity and said, "I deserved that".  Never got picked on again.

Fight back if you can, but always make it's obvious the other person was in the wrong.   Something like this

That's because women are farking vicious. When guys fight, we just want to assert dominance over the other guy, to prove who's bigger/tougher/badder/cooler/studlier/whatever.  When chicks fight, their goal is to inflict as much damage as possible, disfigure the other girl, leave permanent scars...

There's something about school bathrooms that make them a prime ground for bullies. I mean, for most kids, going to the can in public is hard enough, but to have to risk getting beaten up makes things even worse.

Bullies usually bully mainly because they can. They select a weaker kid, one who they know isn't good at physically fighting, and harass and pester him to make themselves look powerful. Then they'll physically attack, knowing it's going to be an easy fight. Rarely do they do it unless there are others around to admire their 'manliness'.

I knew kids in school who resembled Gorillas (usually on the football team) who threw their weight around to show off for the girls, knowing few guys could take them in a fight. Naturally in PE class, they made fun of the kids who were not exactly sports oriented, ridiculing them when they missed a ball or plowing extra hard into them during a football game.

Then the coaches wondered why certain kids just refused to 'dress out' and participate in the good, healthy sports.

In my day, you were a real wimp if you reported being bullied. (According to the Kid Code.) Even the administration didn't seem to take it seriously. They expected you to be 'a man' and stand up for your rights, apparently not grasping the fact that some kids were just not fighters.

I recall this little guy -- short. About 4 feet tall and handsome as heck. He was, I found out later, a Primordial Dwarf, meaning everything was in perfect proportion to his stature. He had a mouth on him, and a crowd of much bigger guys to handle his disputes. He'd challenge you to a fight and if you accepted, you'd better loose or his gang would tear you up.

He was a BMOC, but school ends and you enter the real world and it's not real kind to guys of his stature. I take comfort in that, having had a few run-ins myself with him.

Little f**k pi$$ed me off but was never without his 'body guards' in school.

Only bullying CSB I have:

It's 1st grade and I'm getting terrrorized by this 2nd or 3rd grader every day. Fights in the school yard, chases me home, the whole nine yards. My dad, for reasons I can't recall, taught me how to make a "slush ball" (It was winter time).
So I'm running home, again, and I desperately scoop up a double handful of slush and snow (thinking I could distract him or something). I wad it up, turn and blindly throw it back at him.
I take no credit whatsoever. To this day, I swear the God of picked on children guided my snowball. In making my hastily packed slush ball, I must've scooped up some gravel as well. It hit him square on the nose and busted it open like a ripe melon. Next thing I knew, there was screaming and blood...LOTS of blood! I ran home crying I was so scared. This was 1976 or '77 so there were no lawsuits or anything like that. All I knew was he had a bandage over his nose the next day, his face was swollen up and I never got chased home again.
No ITG, I didn't exploit the fact that he didn't chase me. I was still scared of him and avoided him at all costs. It wasn't until years later that I realized he also started avoiding me!!
As for the rest of my school years, I hit my growth spurt when I was 12 and was 6'3" in the 5th grade. I wasn't a tough guy by any means, just big enough to make other guys think twice.

I was tiny in high school, so I became friends with a big kid. Never got farked with.

What most people are missing here is that there are two types of bullying. You have the lone bully, and the group/mob. The lone bully more often than not can and should be dealt with by the potential victim holding their ground or retaliating. Unless we are talking extremely violent bullying, this really is just a right of passage. Most all kids will experience this in some sort of way. The more dangerous, and more common type of bullying now is the mob/group. Standing up will NOT be good. You will get destroyed and the violence against you will escalate. The only way of stopping this is to farking expel and make examples out of the perpetrators. I grew up in a truly inner city school. Bullies, were mostly gang members and low life scum in training. Bullying mostly consisted of extremely violent events that would escalate into much worse situations. My best friend knocked out the head of the Cholos when he was harassing and groping a girl. Had he not moved to another city, he would no doubt been killed. Sometimes, standing up for yourself or others will NOT have a good outcome.

One particular bully was constantly giving me shiat in middle school.  One day I was walking home after a side trip to 7-11 for a drink (RC Cola, 16 oz glass bottle, old school) when I hear girl yell "Look out!"  Of course I turned around and got punched in the face by my nemesis.  I immediately broke the soda bottle on the sidewalk and started for him.  His eyes popped out and he started running like crazy.  It's probably best that I did not catch him, but it was the last time he messed with me.

I was a scrawny little kid and rarely won fights.  On the other hand, I probably make more than all the people who bullied me combined.

No we really don't need to teach kids to "fight back" we really need to teach bullies that there are serious consequences to bullying. Why? Well because in the real world there is. You go and beat someone up as an adult, you go to jail if you are lucky. If you are unlucky, they may just shoot you. Kids need to learn that bullying has consequences before those consequences are something that can screw up your life.

maelstrom0370: Only bullying CSB I have:

It's 1st grade and I'm getting terrrorized by this 2nd or 3rd grader every day. Fights in the school yard, chases me home, the whole nine yards. My dad, for reasons I can't recall, taught me how to make a "slush ball" (It was winter time).
So I'm running home, again, and I desperately scoop up a double handful of slush and snow (thinking I could distract him or something). I wad it up, turn and blindly throw it back at him.
I take no credit whatsoever. To this day, I swear the God of picked on children guided my snowball. In making my hastily packed slush ball, I must've scooped up some gravel as well. It hit him square on the nose and busted it open like a ripe melon. Next thing I knew, there was screaming and blood...LOTS of blood! I ran home crying I was so scared. This was 1976 or '77 so there were no lawsuits or anything like that. All I knew was he had a bandage over his nose the next day, his face was swollen up and I never got chased home again.
No ITG, I didn't exploit the fact that he didn't chase me. I was still scared of him and avoided him at all costs. It wasn't until years later that I realized he also started avoiding me!!
As for the rest of my school years, I hit my growth spurt when I was 12 and was 6'3" in the 5th grade. I wasn't a tough guy by any means, just big enough to make other guys think twice.


Similar CSB, bro!  When I was in 6th or 7th grade I was chased home daily by a big high schooler in my neighborhood.  One day he almost caught me, but I turned mid-stride and threw my backpack at him.  To my surprise, it tangled up his legs and he sprawled/skid into the grass, totally ruining his perfectly white Miami Vice style pants.  I kept on running and got about 50 ft away.

He was pissed.  First he yelled at me for ruining his pants, then he yelled, "You'll have to get your backpack sometime!".  I told him to keep it.  Let him try to explain to my parents why he had it.  Then he spun up like a shot-putter and flung the backpack toward me.  No more chases after that, but did have one further run-in with him.  But that's a CSB for another time.

lack of warmth: WhyKnot: Smeggy Smurf: Quigs: Knucklepopper: WhyKnot: As a father of grade schoolers, although we have avoided any bullying this far, it is a concern.

I think if my kid was beat up or continually picked on, my first stop would be the principal next would be the police. Next I would find out who the parents are (including following the bully home I needed). I would confront, threaten if needed, the ass-bags and tell them if anything happens, I will be back. If it continues I would be back at the kids house to follow through on my threat. Additionally, I would make a poster of the kid and publicly sham him/her. If the school or parents had an issue with the shaming I would confront them (on camera) asking why they are so worried about protecting a bully, but not the victims of such bullying.

I wasn't picked on, so I don't expect my kids to be picked on... kids seem to walk the same line the parents walked.

You are terrifying and sound insane.

This.

Good.  More chickenshiats need to be terrified that their actions will get their asses beaten.

Ummm...I wouldn't threatened the bully (okay maybe I would), I would threatened the bully's parents...including mom....just putting it out there that juvenile bullies are bullies because they aren't challenged on being a bully by adults.

Oh, I would also sue the hell out of the school, the principal individually, and the bully's family.

Again, my kids aren't being bullied (nor are they bullies), so this is all ITG stuff at this point, but I know I wouldn't just take it or just sit back and let the school resolve the situation.

I did have a very unfortunately interaction with a dog owner after her dog attacked mine while I was walking him. After a few well placed kicks that dog ran home with his tail between his legs. I will defend what is mine. :-)

You do remember you are the adult right.  As in, you are more likely to get arrested than your kid.  Force the issue with the principal, but stalking and threatening will only get you submitted on Fark, as opposed to commenting in a thread.  Talking big right now, will in time mean nothing when the real problem surfaces.  Most parents I knew who claimed what they will do if their kids are bullied ended up with bullies for kids.  Kids who are taught to take an aggressive stance may become aggressive (no duh in hind sight, but true).  Start with that war front before worrying about bullies.  Not all kids get bullied, only my oldest was bullied, teach them to be civil and courteous first.  My second son had no fear about taking on his older brother's bullies, but even he won't start a fight.

I have thought of it, but I won't cross that criminal line.  My kids wouldn't be any better off with me in jail.


MY kids are quite and shy, they aren't going to end up as bullies.

I didn't say stalk, I said find where they live, following them if I must.

I don't train my kids to be aggressive; daughter wouldn't fight even if I tried to get her to. Sons maybe, but I doubt it.

I expressed I was being an ITG. I wouldn't go after he kid, the father, yeah maybe. As for going to jail, well it would be hard to prove the rock through their front window was from me. Or that the second rock through the window was me.

Schools do not address bullying like they should, because the bully's parent has some sob story why little Johnny is acting out, and the school just hopes the situation will heal itself.

dj_bigbird: . If the bullying were carried to its logical conclusions, these weaklings would be destroyed and they wouldn't pollute the gene pool.  Females see the dominance of the strong ("bullies") and want to mate with them,


I don't agree. In my experience bullies were actually the wimpy ones. They only go after somebody think they is weak, then once that person does ONE thing back to them they completely give up bullying them. In my school there was only one bully who was actually capable of fighting anybody and the other bullies just kind of hid behind him.

To me it's not strong or impressive. I think they have emotional issues that they are not capable of handling like normal people are, and insecurity issues. I always thought of them as emotionally wimpy and not very smart. Unable to handle things and lashing out, not thinking much....

Schools don't seem to take bulling seriously unless the person bullies an adult then oh no ... now it's super serious.

Knucklepopper: Snarfangel: Psycoholic_Slag: Knucklepopper: In before the "Well, that sure as shiat never happened to me in school! I dealt with my bullies by giving them a proper ass-kicking!" Oh wait.

Yes, because every kid ever bullied just stood there and took it.  Not one kid ever fought back. Ever.

What about that one time?

This is Fark. There is no "one time." This is an utter den of brooding Chuck Norris' and gladiatorial man-sweat. These Internet warriors have been killers since kindergarten. Killers! So you just go be a pussy somewhere else!


Yeah, this.

Rik01: I recall this little guy -- short. About 4 feet tall and handsome as heck. He was, I found out later, a Primordial Dwarf, meaning everything was in perfect proportion to his stature.


Meaning that statistically, his penis was probably between 3-4 inches at full mast.  But we already knew that, because he was a bully.

Quigs: Psycoholic_Slag: Cold_Sassy: Psycoholic_Slag: Cold_Sassy: Snarfangel: dj_bigbird: Bullying is an evolutionary/biological imperative. It's a way for the strong to weed out the weak from the gene pool (or for the weak to find the strength to fight back and become one of the strong). If the bullying were carried to its logical conclusions, these weaklings would be destroyed and they wouldn't pollute the gene pool.  Females see the dominance of the strong ("bullies") and want to mate with them, thus producing a stronger offspring.

Or the weak to gang together in large groups, producing civilization.

Or, what about the smart geek who lays an ambush?

Or, the passive-aggressive who keys your car in the parking lot?


Yes.  That would be you.

What's more chicken sh*t than fu*king with a man's automobile? I mean, don't fu*k with another man's vehicle.
You don't do it.
It's just against the rules.

Not always. In college, some asshole parked to the left of my car, but  diagnoally, so that the front of his vehicle was half in the spot to the left, and the rear of his vehicle was behind mine. I was stuck until the person in the spot in front of me came and pulled out, so I could go forward and leave. Before I did, I keyed the shiat out of the asshole's car. Only time I've ever keyed someone, and the guy deserved much worse.


Holy shiat, this. He deserved 4 flat tires.

Violence most definitely solves *everything*. There is quite literally not a single situation in existence that cannot be solved definitively with violence. If you're being bullied, your goal should be to make a single devastating preemptive attack. Even if you don't win decisively, you can still hopefully do enough damage to dissuade the bully from messing with you again.I was bullied for a stretch and it didn't stop until I came to this realization and acted on it myself. No bully is going to sit down and "talk about your differences" over tea or something. Know why? Because bullies generally don't need "differences" or "reasons" for their actions. Bullies bully because bullying is fun and kids are dicks.

Callous: And the attacker is wearing black military style assault shoes.  We need common sense legislation to curb this kind of shoe violence.


My kid was sent home from middle school for wearing potentially dangerous "biker" boots.

In truth, I thought they were dangerous because they would slow him down.  He was small for his age, but fast.
 
2013-02-15 04:56:44 PM
The whole "not fighting back" thing is inexcusable. When someone hits you first you have a right to self-defense. Don't stand there like you're 2-3 standard deviations below the IQ mean Who the hell would just stand there and take a beating?
 
2013-02-15 05:01:00 PM

Master Sphincter: Not fighting back is a sign of intelligence, as walking away probably keeps him from getting seriously hurt by this gang of canadians. Unfortunately for this poor soul, the system forces him to endure the agression for years and years.  Seriously, bullied kids have it worst than most adults.  Once you grow up you can complain, change jobs, sue, threaten to sue etc, etc.

/not racist, but I knew they were before I clicked the link
/maybe a little racist


It's not racism to expect certain behaviors from certain races based on correlation between behavior and race.  Racism involves deeming one  race to be superior or inferior to another.  So just remain neutral on the value of violence and you won't be a racist.

kregh99: A few points that are consistent in every bullying case I've ever seen:
1. The parents of the kid that threw the punches are just as disgusting and vile as the bully himself.  If you wonder where he learned his craft from, it's his parents.
2. Nancy boy needs to learn to stick up for himself.  He's only proven that he can take a beating.  Get some aikido/jujitsu lessons.  Twice the damage, half the effort.  When your attacker is recovering from compound fractures, he'll be reminded to not fark with you again.
3. Rest assured, the school will do one of two things:  Ignore the situation completely, or punish the wrong child.


Well, OK, but aikido isn't about doing damage. Its techniques are designed to help you defend yourself while protecting your opponent from harm.

Superintendent:  "there is always another side -- not that it's the right side, but something that we basically need to take a look at to find out exactly what happened. Even from this morning's investigation, we have found some discrepancy with what was originally reported."

They're trying to hang everybody.
 
2013-02-15 05:44:33 PM
It's the same exact reason why switching sides of the street when you see a black dude walking towards you isn't so much "racist" as it is "recognizing commonly occurring patterns".

As a kid I always I had a knack for getting into it with bullies. Fortunately for me, I had a knack for brawling too. If I were to be totally honest, I absolutely loved a good fight -- especially if I was outnumbered and we could get a lot of blood everywhere. Oh, the theater of it. As an adult I sometimes feel kind of bad for having put the hurt on some of those people, even though they well had it coming and certainly intended to rough me up.  But the more I see these videos of bullies beating on kids that don't even put their hands up to fend off the assault, the more I'm reminded of why I was so quick to throw the first punch, and I kind of wish I'd hurt a few of the bullies of my day just a wee bit more. Violence is bad though. Eye for an eye leaves everyone blind and all that.

This was pretty much my whole school experience. Even after I broke the foot of the school's star quarterback, it never got any better... I just got threatened with expulsion if I ever fought back again.

/and the funny thing was, I didn't even fight back that time
//I was holding the bathroom stall door shut to keep away, while the QB and the whole damn football team was trying to force it open while the teacher watched
///after nearly a minute of this, the door came off its hinges and fell on his foot, and his wailing and crying was the only reason the teacher intervened

 Eh, you guys calling this guy "Terrifying" and "Insane" scare easily.

 Guy figuring out where the kid lives so he can lawyer up or talk to the parents, if/when the school won't do anything, is hardly scary. Well, maybe if you're the parent of the bully it might be....

 ...wait, I think I see what the issue is.

Wow. that's a nice big pile of bullshiat, right there. Have you been playing the victim all your life, or just here? I bet you still whine to anyone who will listen about how they are all out to get you.
