In a near perfect world, when someone is being bullied, any onlookers would come to the aid of the victim. In our world the onlookers will arm themselves with their smart phones, record the event, then post it on YouTube.

Most of the replies in this thread are about what to do when you are the one being bullied, so I wont comment on that.

But even if you aren't the one being bullied it's important to help stop it. If you see someone else being bullied, help them out. A lot of bullies do so because of either wanting to feel powerful or because they seek approval from their peers. By creating an environment in which the bullies have less power and respect (by having lots of people show they wont tolerate it), you are taking away their motivation and letting the person being bullied know they aren't alone.


Good post.

Here's a thought: punch people in the face.


That was my answer as well.

I'm also a fan of going bat-shit crazy.


Heh!

Being Scottish, I have a long line of ancestors, who like myself, are big fans of fist fights and deranged women, and fist fights with deranged women. I don't know what it is about violence that's so damn attractive, probably just a symptom of the male mind in general. Personally, I promote violence in all confrontations with unreasonable people. Trying to reach the mind of an unreasonable person is impossible, their face however, presents itself.

If it was a question of intellectual incompatibility it would be one thing, but when someone is targeting you, they're enacting a predatory persona. They must be broken of it, or they themselves must be broken. Those are the only options. Pretending we can turn the other cheek, or apply social pressure with kid gloves, or leave it up to school administrators is ignoring the larger social problem that extends into adulthood.

As for the idea that you can shame inner city kids by bringing their parents into the classroom, are you kidding me? What parents? Some of their parents are actual criminals. If not most. And try finding a teacher with the balls to do that knowing the student probably owns a gun and even with all the metal detectors, they probably have it accessible within walking distance. Perhaps it will have some effect on suburban schools in wealthy areas, but when things have broken down to the point they have that kind of solution is laughable. Locking people up isn't the solution either. So you might ask what is the solution? Violence. Abject, unadulterated, physical pain. As they do across the world and most famously in Singapore -- we need to start caning people. And for more serious crimes we need to flog people with leather and iron beads. Flay the flesh from their backs.

Oh, Ash, you're a sicko! Am I? Am I? Or is it that puritanical solutions have only enlarged the problem.

Gang members brag about going to jail. Who the fuck is going to brag about having someone beat their ass with a stick until they cried like a little girl? Who walks down the street acting hardcore when their ass has been canned? Nobody. We need to make crime and punishment UNCOOL again. As it stands right now, there's nothing uncool about robbing and stabbing people, spending some time in prison, then coming out with "street cred." How about we just rip the flesh right off their backs? How about we tan their hides? How about we hang murderers? Eh???

Nah, can't do that, because Jesus rides on Dinosaurs and he said to be nice to horrible people. Yeah, I'm thinking Jesus was a horrible person for trying to disarm good people and leave them defenseless both physically & mentally.


I am going to report you to a moderator....for being to awesome and in other words i agree. i think if you show to much mercy , you will not make any progress. Also i think just because so many people do it , they are underestimating how evil what they are doing actually is. Killing them might be to harsh...but a good beating sounds fair to me if you got proper evidence and they were harassing some one.

I used to be bullied...no , harassed is what it should be called....anyways , a few times and of course the teacher would tell them to stop and all that but it never worked , but once i attacked and defeated my three my harasser's they had a new view of how the food chain worked and never bullied me again.

Lastly , let me actually answer the ORIGINAL POST of this topic. how do i define bullying? bullying is when you harass some one who is weaker than you , not for revenge or anything positive in your mind , but simply because you enjoy it because of how big it makes you feel.
what do i think the cause of bullying is? it is caused from the craving of power and selfishness and to be more specific , i think a person who was abused him self and felt weak harasses people to avoid feeling that pain from his past or had lousy parents who never told him he was good or even worse...told him he was weak or small. Is it a natural part of life? yes very much so , it is human nature and possibly in a very dark way...part of the circle of life , everything needs something to threaten it in the food chain and i think humans are its own predator to help keep the numbers in check., aka not to high so it will never go away. how do i think schools should educate them on how to deal with harassers ( bullies )? Talking does not do any good unless you threaten them with the REAL solution , and the REAL solution to this is to stick up for your self and defeat them with a form of attack so they can unde rstand that you are not a good , weak target for them. we need to teach are kids to fight for there PROTECTION and friends and how they should stick together and unite and all at once with all your friends side by side , tell that bully he will be crushed by every one of them if he does not stop...and if he does not stop , you keep your promise......and if you do not agree with that AND do not support the army who defends its self , your a hypocrite.


Well said!! As an army brat we moved about every 2-4 ytiears to make matters worse mama was a bit of a gypsy. I've had my share of being "the new kid" Imagine being 4'5 100lbs at sixteen. It's like a genetic bulls eye on your forehead. It came to a head in junior high somewhere in Maryland I had caught the eye of the local bunch of misfits when they decided to set up a fight between some kid and me. The whole thing was because the head idiot aka Kenny just needed someone to make his life more interesting. The fight didn



Didn't even last two minutes. Kenny and his friends popped out to beat the crap out me for messing with his boy. Thankfully my stepbrothers Scott and Andy were about five minutes behind me coming to school (the whole thing happened within ten minutes) Scott's a big guy and Andy well let's just say he's an ex bully. What followed well we won the day but my bro's couldn't be there all the time. I got my share of ass-kickings. But I learned to fight my battles when I could, retreat when necessary, and grab a weapon whenever outnumbered. Call it a life lesson.

And I'm sure it would get a hundred thousand hits in a minute. However in a perfect world his friends would be near by in sufficient numbers to counter the opposing side. Watching a crime and doing nothing to stop it is just as bad as being the guy or gal who commits the crime.

Man, I wish people at my school thought like the people in your HS class do...
Well, here's how I know how to solve it:
1. Ignore them
2. Make friends that will stand up for you
3. Confide in someone you trust (teacher or parent is the best choice)
4. Get the school involved in it

They fuck up lives. They deserve it. There can be no redemption for a bully. Not through the greatest pain and death. They internalized abuse from their fathers, and it is all their fault for doing so. As they lash out at the world, it lessens their anguish, though it can never cure it.

Fuck bullies.

Why do you think they deserve it and can't have redemption? It is not their fault that they act this way, they are just suffering from psychological problems that need to be cured.

You can't cure a predator. Gas the lot of them.

The strong do as they want, the weak do as they must.

If every person feared being weak more than they feared getting hurt, there would be no bullies. Never tolerate aggressive acts by others because it only encourages more of it. Walk tall and proud.

Walk up to them, look them in the fking eye, the next step is going to be the hardest thing you'll say. Say,"I'm sorry" and extend your hand for a handshake. there's various scenarios:

#1. If shakes your hand and accepts your truce, it's over. Problem solved.

#2. If he punches you, you punch him back. It's self-defense.

#3. If he turns around and walks away, tell everyone what you did and say "I extended my hand in peace and he refused it. if he comes at me, I will hit him."

Good luck.
