I got bullied in my school and my neighborhood.

It sucks.

Actors athletes and politicians....so bullies.

Alright.

No it doesn't. Bullying makes us strong, guarantees the tribe's survival. Yo know who you can count to take action when there's trouble and the weak ones know their place. Look at chimps and apes. They know what's up, they bully each other.

It's nice to see so many people coming together to say "enough is enough" lately.  Whether it's bullying, sexual assault, or racism, it's a problem worth addressing and worth working towards eliminating to make the world a better place.

  People will obviously chime in to say "Toughen up", "Life's not fair", or "Happened to me, don't see me crying about it".  That's all irrelevant.  Our goal as humans should ALWAYS be to make the world better for the next generation.  If that's offensive to you, you're part of the problem, not the solution.

How are the kids who bullied Keaton Jones stronger for having done so?

Bullying is a learned behavior, usually coming from the parents. If you treat other people like crap, or use intimidation to get your way, your kids will pick up on that. Even if you're treating your own kids like crap, they will assume that's how you treat other people and follow suit.
 
2017-12-11 02:06:40 PM  
The only kids I ever saw get bullied brought it on themselves. One was a habitual liar and a snitch and the other was a tough guy who tried to intimidate people only to get a beating when someone didn't back down.  Hell I even went a few rounds with him and I was never much for fighting.

It really sucks that merely 'different' kids get picked on and that shiat needs to stop but some kids deserve a little bullying.

There isn't a word for how wrong you are, I'm sure there is a German phrase that come close.

Bullying accomplishes one goal: It isolates and injures a single person for the worthless purpose of assuaging the ego of another party that have convinced themselves that this is the only way to be tough/mature/popular/whatever. Both parties suffer. If the bullied party has a strong support structure around them they have a chance of shaking it off eventually.Without that support structure chances are slim they will be able to get by without some damage.

And what about the bully? He/she feels better about themselves while debasing themselves. Prolific high school bullies tend to cap out in high school or college and never grow past that point. Where do you think all those failed high school footballer car lot service guys come from?

Those chimps and apes you are talking out of your ass about? That isn't bullying, it's social combat. In the absence of larger social structures or career options like we have, that violence is the only way to determine mating rights to the females. Are you telling me that your standard bully has the base mentality of a horny/angry chimpanzee? (You might have a point on that one)

You are talking out of your ass and your statements smell like it.

Egoy3k: It really sucks that merely 'different' kids get picked on and that shiat needs to stop but some kids deserve a little bullying.


These kids need to be empowered to defend themselves; physically if necessary.  Schools' "zero tolerance" policies against "violence" often just empower the bullies.

Mocking and shaming the parent for blatantly racist and opportunistic behavior however, is always acceptable. Its sad that we have to vet every story that comes by before reacting.

I don't think the kid is acting, it's not fair to dump on him just because his mother is a simpleton who thinks that kneeling and BLM are criticisms of America rather than attempts to make it better.  That is the fault of powerful people who make a living out of spinning events to keep the rubes voting for them.

Poor uneducated racist whites might very well be disgusting pieces of shiat but somebody else made them the way they are.  We should spend more effort fighting the bullshiat than we do the idiots taken in by it.

I need you to know this. It's very important. Ready?
You are not a smart person. Not about this.  Maybe you're nice, help old ladies, know Algebra, whatever, in this, you are not that smart and should probably stop thinking you are. And if others agree with your stance, those are other monkeys that are also, not very smart.
I've worked with a lot of kids and the ones who get along, who don't bully, understand the way the world works or should work.
You're "idea" is how a block in the city might work out. What we need here now is larger thinking. Most bullies I've seen stopped thinking about the outside world around 10th grade. They never leave the town they grew up in. They never have ambitious goals and more than most die  alone "thinking" they had friends. They stay where they think they were a big shot.
And if you're a parent of a bully, fark you.
I've met those "adults" and they're just the white trash you imagine. One met a small handful that just couldn't handle their kids, whether they were too old or handicapped, they needed help. I feel bad for those people. But the kids this bullied kid talks about, that's some next level Emilio Esteves/Breakfast Club crap and that's learned at home.

I won't dump on the kid. He was bullied and maybe even because of the horrible stuff his parents taught him. That's a double helping of awful and would still try and help the kid in a direct way if I was famous and/or extremely rich.

I was never really bullied, the few times it was tried I threw a weight at the head of the kid trying to do it during football practice while doing lift training in about the 7th grade. A couple of other times I fought back so hard everyone left me alone.  (I'd probably be suspended from school these days.)

Luckily I missed and only broke the glass and didn't kill him which is what could have happened.

Bullies at my school feared me and my friends who were a group of poor band nerds, who also played football, basketball and ran track.

I like to think we kept a boy from going Columbine on us by being a friend to him and not letting people pick on him when we were around.  But we couldn't stop him from murdering his mom, step-dad, grandma and step-grandma.

sorry for your torment Wayne wish we could have done more, but we couldn't change your home life.

At my last high school reunion, I was talking to my old bully (there were many, but he was the worst).  Apparently he thought we used to be friends.  So he bought me a beer and we shot some pool because fark it, high school was more than 20 years ago.

Yep. Ruined my day when I saw this earlier.

The kid's plight is legit, I'm sure. No doubt he really is bullied.

But mom is a dirtbag, and any money people are donating will end up lining her pockets. Fark that. Donate to an anti-bullying advocacy group instead.

 You know who you can count to take action when there's trouble and the weak ones know their place. Look at chimps and apes. They know what's up, they bully each other.

And bonobos screw each other silly. You want to choose bullying for order. I'll take sexual exhaustion.

Before I moved away, there was a "regular" at my local pub who had been bullied as a child for being smaller than his peers. He grew up to be an angry little fella, who would argue loudly about the stupidest things. He seemed to take it personally when other people were happy, and would expend lots of time making people miserable.

For example, I got a new job which I liked, but Angry Little Fella would say things like, "Well, you may be happy now, but you're going to hate your job later. So I'm going to make sure you are not happy now." Seriously, those are the words he used. After about fifteen minutes reminding him that he wasn't my mother, and asking him to stop nagging me, I started loudly saying, "Why can't you pick on somebody your own size?" That, of course, infuriated him even more, but as he kept he tantruming, I kept saying, "Go pick on somebody your own size!" He ended up giving me "the Silent Treatment" for several months, and it was awesome.

I was bullied in junior high and in high school, mostly for being undersized. Also, because I was a creative and intelligent individual living in a Mormon farming community, I got "gaybashed" by folks who were very, very knowledgeable about what homosexuals look like, and what activities they participate in.

Unlike the Angry Little Fella, my bullied past encouraged me to be a better and kinder person than my tormentors. In fact, I even felt a little bad about telling that little bully to pick on somebody his own size. But not bad enough to stop. In fact, maybe I should send him "Christmas Cards" at work and to the pub encouraging him, "Pick on somebody your own size!"

I had the "big kid's dilema".  Smaller kids would bully me (I had a kind and gentle nature in my younger days) and if I took it, I was a wimp.  If I pushed back, they would crying to an authority figure and I was the bully.  I eventually learned to make an example of someone and sort of accidentally send them flying across the room.  I'd get in a bit of trouble over but the little sh*ts would then be scared of what I might do to them if I got really pissed off:

Makes me wonder what the whole story is, though.   We've heard from the kid and the mom, but none of his friends, other students not involved, the school (though they probly don't want to get involved) or anybody else.
