    Re: Bullying...

    Well, this turned out to be an interesting thread. How many people here weren't physically bullied, but were otherwise?

    Re: Bullying...

    There's a difference between bullying and teasing, first of all, the line can be very vague and subjective. What I feel might not be what you meant, and while we both share some culpability in that, the onus is still on me to bounce back from the disappointment of someone not respecting me.

    When bullying becomes criminal (assault, vandalism, to saying nothing of worse things)...well....then it's a crime. Prosecute it as such.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    I was only physically bullied that one time I discussed earlier and never emotionally. Or, if anyone attempted to bully me emotionally, I didn't recognize it as such and just didn't care.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Where are you getting this assumption from? Man, three total misunderstandings and assumptions in just a few posts... having a bad day?

    Okay, so what's the problem? Hopefully something more than this:

    I was rarely picked on physically, but verbally...I took a beating in my elementary and junior high days. By the time high school rolled around, it had pretty much stopped. I will say that toward the end of junior high, I started putting fist to loud mouths and I suspect that's why it stopped.

    I'm not assuming anything, I said even *IF* you disagree. I didn't say you disagreed, I said *IF* you disagreed. Maybe you're the one who is having a bad day with reading comprehension.

    So you solved your own problems. Good for you. You should be proud of yourself.

    Re: Bullying...

    I was never actually bullied physically... my friends and I were/are so damn sarcastic that I am sure that I was bullied by some but I thought it was a game and played with it. So I would say I was never bullied or at least didn't recognize it if it did happen.

    Oh, I had a teacher tease me in first grade. I had ADHA and he would tower over me tease me about being hyperactive. Mad my little self sad. When I was 17 or so I saw him for the first time since that grade in the store. I walked over to him, looked down (turns out he was about 5'3" and I was now 6'2" and very athletic) asked him if he remembered me. He didn't. I told him how he used to make me cry and how he would laugh. He started looking really nervous. I asked him really calmly if he thought that it was funny now. He timidly shook his head and looked like he was going to pee himself. I smiled, told him that I didn't think so. Told him to have a nice day too. Went back to our line and high fived my mom. (I am a good kid). Good story if I do say so myself.

    I did, only after I was told there "wasn't anything that could be done" about bring picked on incessantly. I figured, I didn't care if I got into trouble at that point. I felt I had to send a message, so to speak.
