I was always the stoner kid that took "bullies" head on whether they were picking on me or some other random kid my skateboard was a good friend all through high school a truck to their face made them think twice about trying anything when I was around. But "bullies" need a good beatdown to show them what it's like when someone has a domineering presence over them.

The problem with bullying today is the Internet, specifically social networking. With bullying before the Internet, it stopped as soon as the child left school. At home after school and on the weekends, they did not have to deal with bullies.

Today it is very different. Kids have e-mail, smartphones, Facebook, and YouTube. They are constantly connected to bullying, and there is no way to run from it or anything that they can be away from it either.

That's why kid's shouldn't have access to those things until their out of HS period. (Only reason I even had a phone was because I paid for it myself)

Freshman year of high school... some fat kid my own height which is short tried to punk on me... few pushes later some teachers broke it up... was threatened to watch my back... heh, next day a couple of buddies and a few pipes swinging after school... never saw the same bully again after the school year... what comes around goes around? One thing I learned in school was you never know who someone really was or who they are connected to until its too late... Don't bully people! If bullied BEAT THEIR ASS get a rep so you do not get messed with and you're good.

That's hogwash. "Internet bullying" is a load of crap. I was "verbally bullied" regularly in school, from the point I got on the bus to the point I got off it. I barely even recognize that as bullying. The getting slugged regularly was getting bullied, but I couldn't have cared less what crap some jackasses were spewing. Internet bullying is even easier to tune out. Don't give your email, facebook name to jackasses. You can always change the email or facebook name anyway. Don't bother going to the facebook pages of people like that. Who cares what they say about you on some social networking site. If kids are feeling bullied from that crap, then society has gotten way too soft, and they really need to toughen up anyway.

public lynching of bullies would work too but i guess that would be too extreme. so we can settle for publicly humiliating them put a stamp on their forehead with some sort of ink or make them wear a shirt saying i'm a bully. i don't know i can't remember bullying being an issue back when i was in school i think the only time someone tried to bully me was in middle school and they ended up with a broken nose and i ended up being suspended for 2 weeks. but after that never again did anyone try to mess with me or my friends

Bullying occurs because people dislike/fear/hate other people who are different from them.

If you are not good looking enough, if you're not "normal" enough, if your skin colour is different, if you have a strong accent, if you're poor, if you don't follow the latest trend... if you act geeky... you are targetted.


Racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism and other prejudices are the main causes of bullying.


Solution? There is none. It's like trying to achieve a utopian society... it's impossible. Of course you can make the issues well known... but we can't even stop racism with the general population... how do you expect kids to follow suit. Kids, most of the time, will follow their parents' ideals or older family members. If their parents are racists, they will most likely become racists themselves.

Getting slugged was the easy part. The pain sucked, but you had a damn excuse why you're both covered in blood and bruises. It's always harder to punch someone for just verbal bullying. I hated fighting, but I always hate to lose. I would refight the same person every single day, until they backed down just because I hated losing. I have one eye that is smaller than the other as a result, because of fights.

But verbal bullying, that was harder because you never knew how to fight back from that. Luckily, my reputation as being someone that would fight you every single day until I won a fight made it less likely for me to get bullied or get into fights.

Although, that bit me in the ass once, because someone took two dozen people with them once, because while I didn't care that I would lose a fist fight every single day for a week (this happened once or twice ), they didn't want to have to deal with that and were scared. As a result, I had to lay low for a week or two, but it didn't follow me online like it does with kids today, and it was quickly forgotten about. There were no cellphones, the internet in 94-96 was slow, primitive, and not too popular, and not everyone was connected yet. With Facebook, texting, location services - it would be a different story today. Kids would not forget so easily, and they were keep drumming up trouble online because groups are always connected.

I also hung out with kids who would tend to get bullied, because my rule was that if anything that was done to them, I would perceive it as they were doing it to me, and I would initiate a fight. I was the not too social crazy teen, who did not stir up trouble, but if any trouble arose - I would be smack in the middle of it. I hung out with small groups, who always dragged friends into crazy misadventures that are still talked about 15 years later.

Best thing to do is not to keep silent.
If you are being bullied, talk about it to anyone but please talk!
If you see someone being bullied, help out or if you cannot, go get ppl who can help.
Because if you keep quiet, it's e never ending cycle.

Every time i see a story of someone who committed suicide after being bullied it breaks my heart.
I so wish I could have been there to say 'Hey ! Its OK i;ll help you out!'.

I was witness of someone being bullied 2 times in my life...

One was my best friend in 1st year of high school, one girl (big one mind you) started to beat her up, i rushed to help but 2 guys did hold me back and actually made me watch.I still remember every details of it.... it was sad. After that day I was walkin with her after school and we took different paths so we wouldn't meet them and my friend did talk about it to her parents and teachers. The girl was suspended and luckily it didn't happen again.

2nd time was years later in the subway, I saw 3 guys trying to get the wallet of a younger guy.
They were about 10 years younger than me so I rushed in again and asked the guys 'What's goin on here?'
Of course they all replied 'nothing, we just foolin around' but I could see in the eyes of that boy who was bullied that he was scared as hell, so I took his hand and asked him to come with me and asked the security to come and make sure those guys leave.
After they did, I waited a while with the boy to make sure they really left and he was ok.
I offered him to walk him home but he said he would be fine, so he left.

So yah...
Do what you can, talk and help ^_^
