Big kid definitely saw way too much WWF Wrestling - (World Wrestling Federation)


I seriously thought he was going for the 'piledriver'. That would have left that little bully permanently injured or dead.

He wasn't far away from that wooden piece (bench or some plant bedding) in the back, one wrong hit and skinny guy was a goner or a plant at the best.

It's always the fat kids they pick on,but we fight back !

Kids or even adults being bullied will snap sooner or later..
It took me 2 years to snap. I still remember very clearly that feeling of rage when I fought back. I didnt care if I snapped her head off - all I could remember was my brain telling me to inflict as much pain as possible. In fact, her two lackeys couldnt pull me off their friend who had her head in the bog, when the other one ran to the headmistress for help. I dont think I've ever felt so much rage, ever again. Was scary.

I was 16! You would think that I would have learnt some self restraint by now. I hate confrontations - I simply flounce.

Riiight Still, bullying is an issue amongst grown ups too, it happens at every workplace.

Sadly enough there they don't attack, they just jump of a building

WTF!!!??

Dude, may I recommend you go and post your anti-religious spew somewhere else.

And for the record, no I am not particularly religious but do not see any problem with people that are.

I remember that feeling all too well . It took quite a few of them to overpower me when I lost it the day that they were going to go for my sister.

I think he was referring to this sad story, with such compassion.

I suggested that his response was idiotic, and so he now accuses me specificially, and religious people in general, of being child abusers. It must be awfully dark where he keeps his head.

I would put money on that it wasnt the first day that he had done that, and the kid was restrained in my view.

Re: Bullying in School

Sadly I remember quite clearly that kids of parents from sects which were very easy to 'spot' due to having to wear special hairstyles (very long plats) or clothing (scarves, long skirts and long socks, for instance) had to go knocking on doors to try and convert, missed RE, sexual ed, some sports, etc, on the parents insistence - WERE indeed picked on very hard. One of my friends was told by her parents it was a test of her faith, and her duty to God to put up with constant teasing (she was about 6 at the time). Secterianism is still very alive in NI and of course parts of Scotland - and it certainly was when I was a kid in the 50s in CH. I lived in a Protestant area where Catholic kids were bullied often.

Re: Bullying in School

And I'm sure some atheist kids, or kids of atheists get bullied in more religious societies. "Hey, man, there's Joe - he thinks he's descended from a monkey!".

Kids being teased/bullied and/or not fitting in due to their religion is sad, but it's avoidable as it's a consequence of them being subjected to it in the first place by their thoughtless parents. Bullying is the least of the kids problems.
Man, you really aren't doing other non-believers on this forum any favours by posting this crap. Just shut up.

And I echo the "I'm not too bent up on past bullying because my current life in Switzerland is infinitely better than theirs" attitude of others in this thread. I actually got pretty lucky bullying-wise in the US and Switzerland, it was mild in America (still a few painful moments, though) and non-existent in Switzerland. But it was pretty bad when I was growng up in a poor neighborhood in Siberia as a young kid. Schools had every grade from 1 to 12, so you had bullying going on across different age groups. Looking back as a sheltered European, there was a kind of cruelty everywhere that I just fathom anymore - cruelty to children, cruelty to animals, cruelty to women, basically to anyone who was percieved as weak. Plus if was just after the fall of Communism, it seemed like the older generation revelled in the pain of their upbringing and was hellbent on infliciting it on the new, "freer", generation. Ugh, the memories. Glad I left!

I wondered for the longest time "why me" till I read mimi's post to reinforce what I've learnt from my experiences: it doesnt matter whether you are different because your parents are religious nuts, hippies, poor etc - because the problem DOESNT lie with you. Of course, I am not dismissing the fact that it makes things easier if you were a little different - but some of us who've been through these experiences werent. I was in love with bands like Skid Row, Poison, Warrant and Guns & Roses in my early teens whilst the rest of the girls in my class who were into New Kids On the Block That didnt stop us all from being friends with a bit of good natured teasing all around. Nothing ever malicious. But things changed in my late teens when we had new classmates.

"oh you dont shop at Guess? ewwwww"
"why are you still carrying that backpack from last year?" -- seriously W.T.F.

The route of the problem lies with those insecure little bastards out there whose malicious streaks have been encouraged to flourish due to the lack of proper parenting. Either parents who give these twits the world and think that they can do no wrong, or parents who dont give a them, making these kids seek attention elsewhere.

So true. I've always been surprised by the randomness of it, there's never really a set pattern. When I got bullied younger, it often didn't make sense because there were other kids who were shorter, fatter, nerdier, more foreign, etc. than me who didn't have any problems. It's almost as if sometimes a bully imprints on you, like a strange form of unexplainable attraction. Having a reason just makes it easier.
