I was bullied back in elementary school. Bully is currently one of the only people I'm still in contact with from then.

Bullying is the result of individual Inferiority Complexes. Curing this mental illness is the solution to bullying.

May not be a popular answer, but you stop getting bullied by fighting back. Doesn't matter if you win, lose or draw. The moment you fight back, your target is gone. Telling on a real bully to the teacher will always make it worse. A bully does this kind of thing all the time to different people and probably has detention 4 out of 5 days of the week. Bullies don't fear school punishment.

Once you've fought back once, no matter the outcome, you become to much trouble for the bully to bother with.

I went to 5th grade elementary school in a bad area. I had a group of about 10 kids who would wait for me after school and throw rocks at me. One day I had enough and I snuck up on them all. Me vs. 10 little bastards, was a decent fight that got broken up pretty quickly. I wasn't bothered by them again.

I moved around a lot after that and I've never had to fight more than once at any school and once I did, I was never bullied in that school system again.

Fight Back. It doesn't have to be with your fists. Just keep getting up, don't let them win. They will lose interest and move on to the next kid who's just going to sit there and take it.

On the extended discussion thread you stated that drone attacks were the solution to bullying. Is that your method of curing mental illness?

Well, we have three options:

1) Kill the bullies

2) Maintain status quo and allow bullying to continue

3) Try to figure out the cure to this mental disorder, and then proceed to implement this cure in a peaceful way


Now, #3 is the only ethical option that exists, so I propose that we should try to eliminate bullying in this manner. However, the ignorance of the masses does not make this option possible at the moment, so we will have to take this option off the table until people become more educated. This leaves us with two immoral options, none of which should be chosen or preferred, but if I am able to educate people on how these two options are immoral by mockingly supporting them and acting like a fool, I may be able to show them how ridiculous they are and leave them no choice but to believe in option 3 and fight for it in the same manner as I do. This is the reason behind asking why the government isn't killing bullies, because it is no different than killing a terrorist. They are both immoral actions that should not occur.

Essay response... i didn't intend this it just came out this way



I don't know too much about bullying, in my school everyone is pretty close knit (and no its not a small school, its about 800 kids). But, here at least, most bullying seems to be a combination of people (lightly) teasing others, and those 'others' misinterpreting it as something more than what was intended. there are very few cases of physical bullying, in my school, its mostly just rude humor, rumors, and exclusion. If I were to recommend a solution it would be to preemptively resist. by this I mean if someone is starting something tell them "lay off or..." ("..."= extraordinarily graphic threat that i cant exemplify while remaining pg-13). But don't go looking for a fight, this is more of a conflict aversion tactic. this is what I did in elementary school and middle school and people didn't want to fuck with me anymore (of course I did have more than my fair share of fights, all with the same group of people, those being the ones who weren't phased by graphic threats). the downside is that authorities don't tend to support retaliatory actions, and for some reason, whenever i did this, I was the only one sent to the principal...

BTW- if they make a threat back encourage them to carry through with it, for a few reasons, people make threats to intimidate- if you arent intimidated it didn't serve its purpose- two when people see this they (usually) lose their resolve and don't carry through. In the case that they don't carry through the tables have turned, you can now use this as a point of insult as them being too... (insert adjective here)... people don't seem to like to follow through on threats when encouraged to do so, because it doesn't seem to be as rebellious as threats are supposed to be when encouraged... Chinua Achebe has a good parable for this in "things fall apart" (sorry if you have read this and didn't like the book but I thought it was great)

"'Never kill a man who says nothing...' [He] told a story to illustrate his point. 'Mother Kite once sent her daughter to bring food. She went, and brought back a duckling. 'you have done well,' said Mother Kite to her daughter, 'but tell me, what did the mother of this duckling say when you swooped and carried its child away?' 'It said nothing,' replied the young kite. 'It just walked away.' 'You must return the duckling,' said Mother Kite. 'There is something ominous behind the silence.' And so the Daughter Kite returned the duckling and took a chick instead. 'What did the mother of this chick do?' asked the old kite. 'It cried and raved and cursed me,' said the young kite. 'Then we can eat the chick,' said her mother. 'There is nothing to fear from someone who shouts.'" (the only problem is that silence when being bullied accomplishes nothing, so you have to take a step farther in the that direction)
PS- idk how to denote a quote inside of a quote, let alone a quote inside of a quote inside of a quote so i just used the apostrophe to denote all inside quotes

You must re-examine your premise. Bullying is not a mental disorder, it is a tactic.

Then it is a tactic that we must eliminate from the psyche through education.

Traumatized? Was it that bad for you? I couldn't imagined that. I thought it was some minor bullying.
