    I'd had been bullied more if I wasn't so sick.

    I had my AIM account hacked by my 'friends' who I had stuck with since middleschool. They thought it was hilarious to say I was gay to every person on my contacts list. I suggested I might killmyself to one of them, which allowed me to enough time to get control of my account and change the password/email. No, I wasn't serious, but I had to make a play and they weren't relenting. And it worked! After weeks I got my account back.

    Despite that, the thing that felt worse was being in the hospital for months at a time and having no visitors outside of adults and people in the family. It was a long term realization that none of these people were actually my friends.

    I can think of two friends that would visit me in the hospital

    it's safe to say that they're definitely my closest friends

    I'm not for revenge. Stopping the situation as quickly as possible and bringing that shit to light, yes.

    But the people who did things don't get to make me into something I never would have been otherwise.

    I moved from Oklahoma City to rural Western New York as a kid in first grade. In second grade, the federal building got bombed. Guess who got harassed for the next sixth months because she was from Oklahoma City? I got called a murderer, a bomber, and a killer. Being in second grade and not having the most stable of households to be raised in did not prepare me for that kind of thing.

    Kids are dumb.

    Man, This thread. I was never really bullied at all in school bout the closest thing I had to a bully was some dude in highschool who used to fuck with me for some reason. I usually would just shrug it off because everyone thought this dude was kind of a dick, until one day I guess he was walking behind me in a the hall and kind of like slapped both my ears from behind at the same time ( i don't really know how to describe it) Next thing I know I have this dude by the throat and I'm punching him in the face. Like I literally don't remember grabbing him and starting to hit him. Of course I get the two week suspension and he gets away with no punishment. But hugs for all you dudes who got bullied though, shit is horrible.

    Also looking back that's really the only physical altercation I've ever been.

    I quickly learned to avoid playing grounder. It wasn't so much playing as it was forcing me to be it then everyone threw rocks while my eyes where closed.

    I got teased a lot. For whatever reason I managed to have it roll off my back.

    Other than minor pushing and shit like that the only real time I got beat on was when a bunch or year eleven or twelves took over the oval and I was a few years younger and all my friends were too chicken to play soccer on it or whatever we wanted to do.

    I however was cocky and over confident and went up to a crowd of giant people and told them to move off cause we wanted to use it.

    I ended up on the ground with minor concussion and can't really remember what happened. But it wasn't that bad. Just a bunch of bruises. And they pretty much stopped after I wasn't really getting up.

    Man, this thread kinda hurts. I remember getting teased/shoved for being middle eastern in middle school after 9/11. That was just not fucking fair and pissed me off and I just took it which made me feel worse and worse. It went on all year until near the end, literally the final week of class, some kid just had to go too far and he shoved me in the hallway which was enough for me to go completely fucking mental and just go wild.

    I still feel really bad about it because he wasn't the worst one by far, just a kid who probably thought he could score cheap shots. All the kids went all "daaaaammm" and amazingly covered me when telling the school police that I was hit a few times first and was defending myself. I'm not the fighting type at all and almost always back down or reject physical altercations but that time I fucking snapped.

    I've told you guys about the kid I was in 6th grade with who got a bully to back off by beating him in a Pokemon card match, right

  • CorporateRedCorporateRed Wooooooo! Registered User regular
    I think that story should be made into a movie.

    The camera shifting from you to the bully as the sweat beads on his forehead. In slow mo you pull out the double colorless energy while he slams his hand down in disgust. The look of grudging respect in his eyes as you pull your last prize card, the other kids cheering.

    Do you mind if I shop this around LA?

    I haven't been here that long (only a few years), so I never even saw the worst of it, but this forum itself doesn't exactly have a sparkling record w/r/t bullying.

    Two examples that stick out in my memory are "uglytits" and the pretty gross amount of misogyny that used to get slung at WAM.

    I'm glad this place has grown up.

    Kate and larlar were the only people nice enough to be mean to me.

    Everyone else were annoyingly polite.

    years of being an unmitigated prick in high school left me unable to recognize the point at which one has taken things too far

    so it's best if I'm just polite to everyone
