    Re: Would you have played knockout as a teenager because of peer pressure

    I have no idea why kids today are so violent. We were hippie peaceniks. Flower power, love, and peace (man). We did have some upper class-men that we called beer-freaks. But they would just call you out to fight behind the Dairy Queen. Then they mostly wouldn't show up.

    I probably did do some things due to peer pressure. Smoking, drinking, and shop lifting come to mind.

    Sunday punching someone without warning was a cowardly act. No one wanted to be known for that. I did get Sunday punched a couple of times when I was in bars and older. Which sucked because the bouncers would run over and grab you so that you couldn't get revenge. Still a cowardly act in my mind.

    There's no peer pressure in the world that would have gotten me involved in anything close to that. I shoplifted. I ditched school. I drank. I ran away from home. But a knock-out game? NFW.
    I was going to say something very similar, but you said it well. I would never do that either. It's just rotten IMO. I can honestly say that I've never physically harmed another person.

    No, I would not have hurt someone like that because of peer pressure. I was foolish as a teenager, but not hateful and mean.

    I'm happy for you and others like you. I wish I could say for certain I would not have done such a thing as a teenager.
