Why do people take ridiculous things little kids say seriously one minute and then when a kid is telling the truth about being bullied or something they get ignored?

Pushing boundaries by taking Pranks too far! I still remember when that popular commonly invented Pranks a few years ago; I /knew/ the youth would love them! This Pranking behavior is totally new!

#20, I believe there was a story recently about a boy who bit his poptart into the shape of a mountain, but the school freaked out because they thought it resembled a gun. At least that's what I think happened

In America, for kids, anything even vaguely sexual gets automatically believed, and anything even vaguely violence related gets automatically disbelieved.

I'd inform the parents, but make sure you have some form of proof of it happening/then saying that phrase, and ask where they learnt it from. It's harder to ignore and disprove something happened when there's hard evidence. It might not win you friends and the parents may get upset/annoyed, but at least you'll have proof of it happening. I'm sorry this happened to you.

I'm curious as to where the 13 year old brother learned the phrase "my bitches" from. I know I wasn't talking like that at 13.

Fair enough. I guess I'm looking at from my point of view. I didn't start really swearing at least until I was in high school because I was afraid to and in some cases made fun of because when I swore people would say I sounded weird.

With all due respect, that is one strangely sheltered upbringing. Kids swore the moment adults were out of earshot when I was young in the late 70s to early 80s.
