Farce-Side: keepitcherry: I'm probably going to get crucified for this but...when did kids get so soft?

You mean the fat?  Or the fact that he's a pussy?


Hahaha. I'm glad it wasn't just me then. This kid is a pussy ass attention whore and his little theatrics got him just the attention he wanted.

where's the posse to mercilessly taunt the people who picked on this kid, until they generate their own feel-good stories of almost suicide (hopefully)?

You nailed it right there! I have seen it and lived it. While you are a kid its "Oh no, you have so much to live for, you are barely starting your life, blah blah blah"


Maybe you didn't read the whole thing?

At least we were spared another bullshiat "bullycide" story glorifying these farking whiners.

If your child is cutting, it's time to call the men in white coats.

Well, then, by all means let's ignore the people crying for help, until the second they stop crying because until then their miserable lives are of no concern.

I do find it interesting the need to post all of this online. I used to cut myself and did everything I could to hide it from people. I would cut the bottoms of my feet, wear long sleeves in summer to cover the cuts, make up stories on how I got the scars. But then again for me it was never about a "suicide" attempt it was always an emotional release kind of thing. My old girlfriend was a burner she liked the curling iron and she did the same thing. I was all sorts of crazy but I never ever wanted anyone to know what i was doing to myself. Pretty sure they all did anyway...

That's typically what happens.

Even here someone will faux conerne until the point where the person says, hey, I feel better, then they are gone again.  The person is left going...wait, what?  Why did they leave me?  Did I do something wrong?  Oh, it must be me, then...

Then they're left feeling worse than before.

Sometimes there is a depression that goes beyond suicide, I think...the point where the person believes with all his or her heart that the sole purpose for existing is to be life's whipping post...once you accept that, it doesn't get worse.  Never gets better but at least it doesn't get worse.

The My Little Pony Killer: Awww, look at those neat, shallow scratches.  Sure, there are quite a few of them, but it's really no different than what my cat can do when she's playing.

This kid was never suicidal. Somebody who wants to die will just up and do it, they won't go through all the theatrics of setting up pictures and posting them on the internet or scheduling their death according to meaningful dates.  They just. farking. Do it.


This.  Anyone who has seen what an actual cutter will do to themselves knows those are just for attention.

He'll be dead within a year. Those thoughts are only temporarily suppressed. Once adulation goes away, he'll go back to thinking there is nothing to live for. It's a mental disease, and must be treated by the appropriate professionals. His brain chemistry is fundamentally broken, and until that is fixed he will never recover.

Don't be a wuss.  Kill youself in the most painful possible way -- live to death.  Be fearless! Go skydiving, go scuba diving, go exploring, because hey, who gives a crap if you die?  Sign up for medical experiments, donate blood and plasma, eat that... uh, whatever that is.

That shiat's expensive. Anyone who has enough money to go traveling around, skydiving, etc, without having to worry about their job probably already has enough money to solve their problems.

xanadian: FTFA: Noah Brocklebank, a seventh-grader from Columbia, Md., has been bullied by his classmates for years. He's been called 'fat,' 'ugly,' 'annoying,' and loser,' amongst other terrible names.

1. Kids are assholes, *especially* at that age, and I'm glad the kid is getting help.
2. If he's so bothered by not just the name-calling, and it's his physique that's drawing all this negative attention, there's a solution: GET IN SHAPE, GO OUTSIDE, BE ACTIVE. Mommy Dearest, this is YOUR cue as a parent to support him in this.
3. He's no fatter than 90% of the other kids I see these days, but he's gotta lose that Bieber do. Yipes!

I'm sure you've been around long enough to know how these threads go: emotionally-stunted manchildren using net anonymity to pretend they either a: were too cool to experience bullying growing up or b: were so mentally tough that the bullying just rolled off their back 100% of the time.

Considering the main demo of this website (fat pasty male nerds nowhere near the norm in terms of social interaction growing up) you have to know neither situation is close to being true. So you can only sit back and enjoy threads like this for the group therapy-through-delusion sessions they really are.

You were never bullied as a kid were you? Lucky you. The problem with being bullies is EVERYTHING you do becomes a target for them. 'Hey fatty, why don't you exercise?' becomes 'haha, look at the fat kid trying to run', which becomes 'why do you care so much about looking good, you shallow asshole'.

I'm not saying he shouldn't exercise because of that by any means, but it should be done for him, not them, because it won't help the problem. The best solution I found was to make a bigger effort to socialise, find a couple of people who share your interests and genuinely don't care what you look like.

The only thing that can get someone to feel better about themselves is a good support network, whether that's friends, parents or random strangers from the internet sending you mail.


Funny, when I was that age, and the kids bullied me because I was "fat", I beat the shiat out of the leader of the group.  Then I asked his friends if any of them wanted to prove their mettle.  Turns out they didn't. Never got teased again.

It felt great.

Moral of the story: Put your kid in martial arts, sports and summer education.  They will end up smarter, faster and more capable than their classmates.  No one takes teasing seriously when the people teasing them are their lesser.

Oh farking bullshiat.  Kids are learing that they get "Facebook memorials" when they try to do this attention whore bullshiat.  Why the sudden rash of kids giving themselves minor flesh wounds (and I mean MINOR) and getting pages of "likes" for it?  Because parents feed that bullshiat.  The kid needs attention alright, in the form of a proper asswhooping, not some bullshiat 'time out'.  The problem is absolutely created by the coddling parents who only give their kids attention when they pull this shiat not when they need help with homework or someone to listen to them when they had a bad day.  They are being TRAINED to do this shiat.  The world is a WAY better place than it was for my parents generation or the generation before that, we now cry when unemployment hits 10% (ask your grandparents about what they faced!) or need to talk to psychologists due to these "Horrible wars" that killed 4000 US troops over 10 years (a bad afternoon taking a French hamlet a generation ago).  Kids these days cut themselves when they don't get the right iPhone or if someone calls them 'fat', well life is tough and it can be WAY the fark tougher so it's time to stop REWARDING this bullshiat.

Again, BINGO! Except I don't have a job. I was fired because I have this problem with f^%&%g idiots in command positions... especially when they expect me to do a job and then do everything they can to prevent me from doing it. Oh, word of advice for everyone on here... if you think about going to the 'second in command' to try and get things worked out, DON'T! He will just go to the boss and paraphrase what you were saying in the worst possible terms.

That's the problem... I am a wuss. A cowardly, pitiful wuss.

/again, always fun to read the comments of people who either never went thru this, or had someone to care about them. Just because you are making it thru life doesn't mean everyone can do that.

When I was a kid (I'm 40 now) there would be fights after school all the time.  Got my butt kicked and dished a few asskickings back too that's part of growing up.  Back then TEACHERS would call you fat if you were fat, call you stupid if you acted like an idiot, etc. and I don't remember any of my classmates giving them a bunch of papercuts for national sympathy.

What a shock when these coddled pricks have to deal with the real world.  If a few facebook likes can cause you to change your mind on SUICIDE then you weren't seriously thinking about it anyway.

The cure for being called fat is to work out, which happens to also be the cure for most forms of bullying.  Parents who hide their kids problems by blaming everyone else will end up with a hopelessly unprepared kid when he has to go out there and deal with his own problems.
 
2013-03-11 03:30:16 PM  

WhoGAS: And when this kid grows into an adult and has the same feelings of loneliness and insecurity the same people worried about him will be the ones making fun of him for "not being a man" and "being too sensitive" and telling him to "man up!", etc.

It doesn't end and it never does.  No matter how successful you are, no matter how much weight you lose...you will always be the miserable child you are now and nobody will ever treat you any differently no matter how many lying words they use on an internet forum to try to make themselves look better than they are.

No way.  He's an attention whore cutter.  He'll be dead in a year if people keep feeding him attention when he does shiat like this, but if instead of 1000's of likes he got 1000's of people saying "That's a farking stupid thing to do!" he probably won't chase it for attention.

People do what they are rewarded to do.  Now he associates love with cutting.  Keep it up and maybe he'll finally grow a pair and off himself, but then he wouldn't get to see all the love and adoration his act brings him so I seriously farking doubt it

Nobody can know with any certainty if someone would have turned out better or worse if not for some event.  We can only look at the general well-being of a population and make note of correlations, and maybe sprinkle in some actual studies that might have a tiny sliver of merit.

Having said that, objectively, working out is more likely to get someone in shape that getting everyone to not mention their weight.  So, he might actually have a point.

When I was 13 I was made fun of for my glasses,teeth, and freckles. By then I was used to the bullying for the same thing, only it was 10x because it was junior high. I went home and cried, but then I made friends. I survived. High school was better, but you still had assholes out there who had nothing better to do than bully. Whatever. As an adult, I'm sure people point out my flaws and have a nice chuckle amongest themselves. meh.

My advice for this kid: Get in shape...in a FUN way, outside of school. Go to the YMCA and join some kinda sports team. That way, he can get in shape AND be social..outside of school. And yes, a haircut would do the trick AND make him feel better. Find interests outside of school. Find a distraction from all the BS at school. Things will get better, kid.

Oh yeah, and if his Mom isn't TOO much of a biatch about PG-13 rated movies, watch the movie "Angus". When I was that age, hearing George C. Scott's advice of "As for what anybody else thinks, always remember these words and live by them: screw 'em!"

Ant: xanadian: If he's so bothered by not just the name-calling, and it's his physique that's drawing all this negative attention, there's a solution: GET IN SHAPE, GO OUTSIDE, BE ACTIVE. Mommy Dearest, this is YOUR cue as a parent to support him in this.

If assholes are so bothered by the sight of fat people, there's a solution: STFU and quit being an asshole. Mommy Dearest, this is YOUR cue as a parent to support them by teaching them to stop being judgemental assholes!

This victim blaming shiat has to end.


"Victim blaming"?  He victimized himself!  If you think there will be a day without bullies then keep dreaming.  The best thing a parent can do is to be HONEST with their kid.  The kid cut himself, he did it.  Being called 'fat' isn't anything new, the part that's new is where parents go post shiat on Facebook instead of being parents.

Life's tough and teaching your kid that 'self mutilation = love' isn't good parenting at all. It rewards bad behavior and does NOTHING to fix the problem at the source.  The kid has control over his actions, and if he chooses to cut himself instead of work out then his parents failed miserably.

NutWrench: The mom, Karen Brocklebank, came up with idea to help her son cope with the hard times he was facing.

Which apparently didn't include involuntary commitment to a mental health facility.


Well yeah, except for his immediate eight day commitment to a mental health facility.

You MONSTER!! How dare you suggest that the kid have any control over his situation!  Working out is hard, but posting boo-hoo stories to Facebook is easy so it's clear that a good parent would do the latter and you are terrible and wrong for suggesting otherwise.

It's the world to blame.  We're a nation of poor helpless victims.  The sooner you resign to that the sooner you stop blaming yourself for being fat, lazy, etc.

Bullying on the playground mimics society at its core.  Bullying is an in-your-face might-makes-right way of handling things.  Society also functions on a might-makes-right philosophy.  Why don't you speed?  Why don't you walk your dog without a leash?  Why don't you build add-ons to your house without getting a building permit?  Because each of these actions results in a chain of events that ultimately comes down to a display of physical dominance.

Speeding, you get caught, you get a ticket.
Don't go to court, you get a warrant for your arrest, meaning big men with guns will come and physically take you away.
Resist arrest and they will fight back, injuring or killing you in the process.

Speeding, you get caught, you refuse to pull your car over.
Trained officers in specially equipped cars will follow you and ram you off the road, injuring or killing you in the process, in an attempt to arrest you.
Resist arrest and they will fight back, injuring or killing you in the process.

Walk dog without a leash.  You get caught, you get a fine.
Fail to pay the fine, you'll get a summons to go to court.
Don't go to court, you get a warrant for your arrest, meaning big men with guns will come and physically take you away.
Resist arrest and they will fight back, injuring or killing you in the process.

Modify your home without a building permit, you get caught, you get a fine.
Fail to pay the fine, you'll get a summons to go to court.
Don't go to court, you get a warrant for your arrest, meaning big men with guns will come and physically take you away.
Resist arrest and they will fight back, injuring or killing you in the process.

Bullying is simply the instinctive exercise of governing.

This is what people say when they refuse to take ownership of their own actions.

Shut up.  Get outside.  Exercise.  You know why people tease fat people?  Because being fat is a BAD THING.  It's unhealthy, it's gross (you stink, did you know that?) and frankly, it's YOUR FAULT.

So yeah, pretty much not with you on this one.  I was fat as a teen.  It was awful.  I got in shape, and my life just got a whole lot better.  Get over your entitled bullshiat and put your life where YOU want it.  At that point the judgement of others becomes irrelevant.  It's true.  You could take control, but you would rather play victim.  This is why no one likes a victim.
