I'm sure if the kids getting bullied, the bully could probably kick his ass. I don't think bullies pick on kids tougher then them.

Bullies are insecure little girls messing with other people to feel better about themselves

Come to my school I'll show you a bully that is 4'9 and I'm 6ft 280lb and he Billy's ppl including me, you are probably a bully yourself so you make utterly retarded comments like that @#18

Actually from my experience many bullies (girls atleast) are *******. Something similar happened to me- After years of getting picked on by this ***** I called her out in front of her friends to fight in the middle of the cafeteria and she backed down... then I harassed her for the next months or so and got in trouble :P

The school system is indeed broken, but that's why you need to learn how to manipulate it to your advantage. Otherwise, you can continually end up in the middle of ridiculous misunderstandings and even trouble, for practically nothing. Unfortunately, sometimes there's nothing you can do about it, so it helps to work on keeping your thoughts positive despite the frustration it's causing you.

Real bullies don't cry from words...

I agree. He deserves it because he didn't kick the kid's ass! Also he deserves it because if the kid cried over being stood up to, maybe he shouldn't have waited so long to quit being the human punching bag.... But it's also sucks that all school systems are terrible now.

Thing is, my old prep school was (and still is) completely non-violent. If you punch somebody, you get an instant expulsion. No questions asked. They make exceptions at times (depending on how much $$$ you have) but you can't really fight back. Being said, your bully was probably faking. FYL. It always sucks being bullied or fighting back. Or being a tattletale.

It is. My friend was being harrassed by her ex at school, online, and what have you. She reported with evidence of this and they did absolutely nothing. This happened until he graduated. Their logic is to stay out of things or it'll get worse. Uh. Sure. idiots.

Hey at least you stood up for yourself.

14- I think you're mistaken.. I'm pretty sure OP could knock this bully to the ground. I mean, he made him cry by just verbal abuse. All you need to do after that is give him the ol' one two while he's too busy crying rivers.

I dissagree with you 2. Good for you op. You stood up for yourself, but you shouldnt have done so in a fasion that would make him cry cuz then your the verbal bully. Prove to him that you are better then the petty rivalries using words to make him question his own actions (it does work. Words are a VERY powerful thing)

One could imagine the words op said

I'd look on the bright side here: 1) The bully's feelings are hurt. Assuming those weren't fake tears, you just earned a point. Keep it up and maybe he'll beg you to leave him alone (this method will probably result in more detention). 2) Detention isn't that bad, getting him to cry was worth it. If he's an ass to most people, let a couple folks you know hate him in on how he's a crying little baby, and the story will be around the school in a few hours. He'll then be bullied cause he's a universally easy target.

Something similar happened to my friend and his ex got a lot of people to hate him (including some of my other friends who never met him) and he got tired of her shit and got the ******* cops involved. He won that dispute.

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

Have I got this right, 3? If someone is bullying me, I shouldn't defend myself, it's better to defend myself?

LiveLaughFML 10

Did you read the rest of the FML? He fought back with words, not his fists. It's something that we should all learn.

Haha umm he did defend himself like u said he shud?

Bully: He stabbed me! OP: The ****? No I didn't! Bully: ...With his words! Can't you see the huge hole he tore into my heart?

lovelydarlings 6

Yeah you guys are right I read the fml wrong and my comment doesn't make much sense lol I accept my moment of stupidity..

#90, what does someones political party of choice have to do with someone's comment? GTFO

The satisfaction of seeing that pussy cry is more than worth the detention in my opinion..

That's pretty cool. Making bullies cry is fun

Bullies are the real cowards. Thumbs up to you for standing up for yourself!

just proves that bullies have self esteem issues

Way to stick up for yourself, detention lasts up to 2 hours but sticking up to a bully lasts the rest of the school year.

The detention will be well worth it in the long run

good job on standing up for yourself OP! always remember to stand up, be strong and know right from wrong folkls !

Now YOU are the bully! I hope you got the bully crying on video. Upload that to you tube and post the link around school and his reign of terror is over. But yours is just beginning.

Really? So fighting back to a bully is bullying? I think standing up to bullies is right. Even if you do get in trouble , you showed that youre not afraid of them.

Defending yourself against a bully makes you a bully just as much as defending yourself against a troll makes you 'butthurt' as they say. It doesn't make sense, but the argument will be made to make you feel bad.

A matter of fact, new York state is passing a law stating bullying a bully is bullying

Obviously.... But defending yourself against a bully isn't bullying them back. Everyone should have the right to stand up for themselves.

Yeah bro he isn't a bully he's standing up for himself. So when someone is constantly bullying you, you're just gunna go "excuse me I'm trying to not be a bully too so stop." yeah no, not happening

It's like highlander. You defeat a bully you gain his powers. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!

35- So are they also passing a law to make sure you can't use self defence as a reason to protect your own life?

...They were being sarcastic. Nobody actually suggested this person was a bully. It was a joke, keep up.

They're really passing a law like that? The intelligence of some people never ceases to amaze me

I'd say that's a win for you. You got your revenge; besides detention isnt THAT bad.

it wouldn't be if it didn't get out on your permanent record ): though if it didn't really mean much i'd defend myself more

Yeah OP, haven't you ever seen the breakfast club!?

I guess he's not much of a bully anymore now is he?

linkinpark98 23

U show that bully who's boss. If they have been picking on u b4 being it up with the school and say u stood up with yourself and take it to the school board

Yea! And get witnesses and others who've been bullied to speak up too. The guy might leave you alone now but he could still be pushing around other kids.

No offense to you, but that comment was a little confusing to make sense of. If anybody had the same problem as me, switch 'being' for 'bring'.
