I used to get bullied all the time the teachers were absolutely no help so you want to know how I fixed it. Simple really I started punching people in the face. Sure I got in trouble, but if you punch bullies in the face enough and hard enough they just leave you alone and you never have to deal with them again. Kids need to learn to stand up for themselves. I think bullies help me grow up I learned many life lessons form being bullied like the world isn't nice or fair and sometime overwhelming violence is the answer when all other avenues have failed.

It would be cruel to not explain how cruel people can be. *shrug*

Fear is a powerful thing. Victims fall prey to it far too often.

and then you yourself get punished and not them, ok lol

Uh no. This was my experience in the ymca. I was that short nerdy kid with the gray 'old man' hair and got picked on a lot. Someone picked a fight with me and i fought him, won, and got in trouble for it. But guess what; he left me the fuck alone afterwards, and i wasn't looked at as the weak kid. So, no clue what chu mean.

Sometimes there is no nice way to say something.

I always ended up at nerdy "gifted" schools, so I didn't see this as much. But I did learn that if it's verbal assault, ignoring them works well because usually bullies just like getting a rise out of people. If they're actually trying to beat you up, some basic arm locks get the message across without getting you in a ton of trouble.

I recall my time in a school where bullying was the culture from teacher to students were all bullies. I got bullied on day one for my different accent and for being bigger than some of my class mates. After a while I had enough. I fought back with my fists. They learnt not to mess with me but they also bestowed the tittle "bully" on me After a few years mother moved us to a private school where nothing like that existed.

I think I may be mixed about this phenomena.....and I dare call it a phenomena, because I do think this generation has been defined by how the world has treated them. I should know from personal experience; the moment I set foot in junior high, in my 7th Grade year, I "died". I was treated like a dog by everybody, maybe less than a dog; I was everybody's ni**er, Jew, bitch, whatever word describes it. I was always on the receiving end of people. Everything I put up with is forever etched into my psyche, so much that I experience flashbacks now and then.

Fast-forward to now, I remember watching a video by MundaneMatt, and he actually made a very good point about the confusion of how to put up with assholes. When seeking advice, you're given contradictions. They tell you to just report it to school officials, and then they tell you "You gotta f**kin' stick up for yourself!" As for dealing with the problem first-hand, others have beaten me to it, even saying that the one who got bullied gets in trouble. In fact, schools always seems to go after people with baggage. They think that they can eliminate the problem by getting rid of the one with baggage, instead of the bully(s).
What I will pitch in also is that they don't really care who started the fight. They only care about who swung their fist. Already, self-defense has a kind of social stigma, that people who advocate for self-defense (especially with firearms) are viewed as right-wing survivalist psychopaths. Also coinciding with not caring about who started the fight, is the fact that people are seeing a fight and crying over it, without regard to the circumstances of it, like whether or not physical self-defense was implemented.

It's also possible that the reason authorities don't deal with bullies is because they are under some kind of threat by their parents. If the bully gets in trouble, the parents will come in and raise a lot of hell with the faculty. School authorities already have a lot to deal with, and they probably don't want to have to tolerate the parents of a bully screaming at them. This scenario illustrates an example of how it always seems that the bully is the epitome of all that is innocent, and that it's the recipient's fault, usually for ad-hoc reasons, even "Oh well if he can't stick up for himself then that's his problem, not my son's."

I may post more about this later, but right now I'm busy. I just felt like pitching in my two cents or something...
