24. Get this right now and into your head at full volume.
Bullies do not pick on people who are capable of fighting back. That's not bullying that's just plain confrontation. Bullies NEVER pick on someone who can fight back because if they did they might get hurt.
There is no way I amgoing to sit and be told by you that confrontaion is the solution to bullying after 5 years in high school of being continuously beaten up every single lunchtime by the same group of four guys because I was gay and most evenings by a different set of 2 guys because I was middle class. You're going to tell me that standing up to them would have helped? You are fantasizing.
Real people use this website, people you know absolutely nothing about. Standing up to bullies DOESN'T WORK. If it did work, guess what, it isn't bullying it's just fighting.
Nothing disgusts and enrages me more than web-based attitudinal people like you fatuously awarding yourself cool points of the "I beat a bully" flavour for winning a fight. Where the fuck were you when I had to explain to my parents why I was late home night after night and was too afraid to tell my father because he used to lose his alcolhol fuelled temper with me when he found out I was getting picked on and didn't win and was guaranteed to start up on me himself?
Take your utterly ridiculous opinions about yourself and bullying and shove it. You won? Then you have NEVER been bullied. That's all there is.
