Back when I was a teenager in the late 70's,bullies used to mean a person or a group who would harass,intimidate,or physically assult anyone who was smaller and weaker than them.
Those who just called you names and made fun of you,(or your beliefs) were called "assholes".
In my old highschool,if someone like Dan Savage did what he did,he'd of been heckled right out of the building and had his car egged.
Can someone explain to me how Dan Savage was able to bully an entire audience full of modern teenagers?
Did he take their lunch money?
Did he give them an atomic wedgie and stuff them in the locker?
Did he duct tape them to the flagpole?
Am I to believe that all of those teenagers who walked out were physically incapable of "bumrushing the stage" and beating the snot out of him for being such a total douchebaghad they chosen to do so instead of walking ou t(and I am not saying they should have physically attacked him)?
He's lucky those teenagers didn't stab or shoot him in the parking lot.
Dan Savage acted like a complete asshole,but saying he "bullied" those kids is absurd.
