He's gonna beat you up after detention for swearing at him.
Violence is the best option. OP should put the kid in his place. Humiliation or physical harm. Either way works. Some asshole was giving me a load of shit everyday, so I put his arm behind his back and threatened to dislocate if he didn't leave me alone. Haven't had a problem since.
I'm sorry, but standing up to a bully, by violence, is the ont way to end it. Even if you loose the fight, the bully will stop bullying you becuase he will realize that everytime he bullies you in the future, he'll have to engage in physical confrontation. Speaking from true experience. Standing up to that asshole in 8th grade, after a year, was one of the most proudest things I ever did in my life!
I understand were your coming from kit19 although your comment was put in a mean fashion that mist people don't seem to get. The bully is goon to still think he won because the op got into trouble and still try and kick the op's ass. Although it is good that the op stood up to the bully, it may also mean the bully will just bring back up...
A martial art is a really good sport to get into! It will help with self disipline, confidence, flexibility, strenght, and timing. It also keeps me calm. Being a victim of bullying can be rough but violence is the last answer so be prepared if he tries something block it and counteract it then throw something all you got. :)
That sucks! On the upside his karma is going to be twice as worse :D
to stop a bully from harassing you, the best way is to fight that person. but if you got your ass kicked, then your fucked!
Maybe you should tell someone about it? Instead of doing it on your own. Just speak up everyone is against bullying.
I completely agree! The world looks at bullying in a totally different way now! It's not like it was even ten years ago. It used to be that if someone was being bullied people around would just watch or even laugh. Now someone usually steps in. I know from my nephew being in school that teachers take it extremely seriously; especially cause of so many suicides related to bullying! So speak up! As stupid as it may sound, it's not, Tell your teacher or principle! At least in Canada I know schools are taking it really seriously and it's been making a difference. Hopefully it's the same where you are. Speak up.
Speaking up doesn't always work. Five to ten years ago, I repeatedly reported the bullying and harassment I faced while in elementary/middle school, and they rarely did anything. They claimed they "couldn't do anything" unless they "saw it happen for themselves." Somehow, I still got in trouble for giving one of the kids the finger during recess when there were NO teachers watching. Among other incidents. It still rankles.
Bullying is very serious here in Australia and teachers like to maintain the image of doing something about it but being in high school currently in 9th grade and witnessing it for myself and reporting it I can honestly tell you nothing much happens except for maybe a detention and a 5 min "don't do that again". I have been bullied and I have told teachers time and time again, it wasn't until I finally mustered up the courage to tell my mum that it stopped after she contacted the school, I was very embarrased and humiliated by even telling my mother because I thought she might think less of me (obviously she didn't and the only thing that stopped was the abuse) but I don't know how much has changed since 10 years ago but bullying is still a very persistent and overlooked problem. Sorry for the essay :)
People/Teachers in the US always make a big deal about bullying, but they don't really do anything to stop it. One time in elementary school someone stomped on my stuff when I spilled it, and then kicked it away when I tried to get it back. The teacher saw it, and refused to do anything about it simply because she "didn't have proof" or some BS like that. I didn't take much effort for my elementary school brain to figure out she was probably just afraid of getting bitched out by the other kids' soccer moms.
Bullies have lawyers now. My brother was nearly thrown down a flight of stairs headfirst, and somehow he managed to swing around and pop the guy who tried to throw him in the face. The school saw that the bully had tried to throw him down the stairs, (which, by the way, can be life threatening!) and turned their heads. They suspended my brother for punching, and told my parents they couldn't do anything about it because of the guy's lawyer. Then the bully went home after lunch like he always did. They KNEW the guy could have killed my brother. They watched it happen! Telling teachers doesn't always work.
They take bullying extremely seriously here in my part of the U.S. If a kid is caught bullying, over the Internet, verbally, or physically, it's an automatic 10 day Off-Campus Suspension. The policy works! It was implemented about 2 years ago, and bullying has decreased dramatically, at least in my eyes. Any similar policies elsewhere?
I remember i was bullied quite a bit in elementary school, and i told my teachers, councelors, assistant principle, and principle. They ignored it and punished me. In fact, the most any person ever did in punishing a bully was when a kid punched me in the stomach and i pushed him away and immediately told the teacher. I was given 3 days of in school suspension for retaliating and the bully was given 4 after cursing me out in front of an assistant pricipal. The moral of the story is most teachers dont care, and the ones that do just hide behind the rules.
You should've known that bullies are all talk. They talk shit and beat you but you don't tell anyone, because they'll call you a pussy, but as soon as you lash out at them, they run off and you can't do anything about it. It's a lose-lose situation, really.
