As a kid, I was. I was loud, disruptive and didn't give shit, and some kids just hated me I guess. As I got older and finally got the guts to tell them to eff off, they left me alone. Some bullies just do that to impress other idiots, some do it because they like you, or the ones are bullied themselves and they're taking their frustrations out on you

I was scrappy in school and got in a lot of fights with bullies so it always stopped quickly.

I stood up to him. I don't remember exactly what I said but he backed off and let me alone.

Scroll down, I think it was towards the beginning of the poll.

Did you talk to her about depression last night?

Not that I know of it's possible I have a tendency not to read people's names just what they have to say.

Does she have you on block too or is the conversation right below us?

I thought it was on a poll about one word answers to describe yourself but every time I click the comment in which she articulates why she blocked me it takes me to this poll.

I’ll check out that poll. She has not blocked me.

It wasn’t that one word poll. You just said fail under her comments which doesn’t make sense.

It was or wasted the one word poll.

Robert01 existentialist

You are confusing the pants off me.
So the comment "fail" is why she blocked me on a poll question asking about one word answer. - correct?

I don’t think that’s why she blocked you based on what I can see.

I’m sorry you are confused. I’m happy to help, I don’t know if I did.

Never really bullied, no. I've always been a bit of a nobody in public settings, for better or for worse.

Yes. I was in the third grade. However, I didn’t let anyone bully me after that. I became a smartass.

If children do t learn how to deal with bullies, that's the real problem. We get people like you.

Robert01 existentialist
02/06/19 5:46 am

I have been rude to you in this post but I don't see me as trying to cause you harm or coercing you... do you interpret this as bullying?

It seems quite the opposite to me, it seems to me that you are trying to intimidate me in saying 'bullying is not a normal occurrence.' And following it up with 'Roberts probably a bully'.

Maybe we define bully differently...

snagglepuss Story Time

No, I do not interpret this as bullying. I do not appreciate you saying I am a bully nor normalizing bullying.

Bullying is an infantile act of an inferior person.

I completely agree to what kind of people bully.
But it is a completely natural phenomenon to happen whether you're a child or an adult. We should be constantly shunning bullying but to ignore the normalcy of it is ignorant.

Robert01 existentialist
02/06/19 6:24 am

Interesting that you posted an article to Define a single word I would have use the dictionary.

The article suggests that neither you or I would be considered a bully.

I have a feeling this is one of those English nuances though. What constitutes a bully and what constitutes bullying are not the same thing the same is true about harassment and harassing

I disagree. It’s very clear what bullying is and it’s never OK.

What I not saying bulling is ever okay, I'm saying it's normal. Normal doeant mean right or wrong.

Bullies aim to inflict pain on others because they need to feel bigger and stronger than others. It stems from a lack of self worth. You think that is normal behavior?

Robert01 existentialist
02/06/19 1:08 pm

Normal behavior?
Yes. Especially within children.
Let me make this perfectly clear to you I am not saying that bullying is a good thing or that bullying is acceptable. I'm saying that Bullying happens naturally. You may be able to stop in single incident of bullying or multiple incidents of bullying but you're never going to be able to remove it completely out of the population.

I’m saying that bullying is a sign that someone is lacking self worth and it’s not normal. Healthy kids are not naturally bullies.

Robert01 existentialist
02/06/19 2:20 pm

I guess we're going to have to agree to disagree.

From my experience growing up and from that of my daughter's I would have to firmly disagree with you.
When a child he's given some sort of power usually size and strength they use it to the best of their advantage

I was bullied in my Catholic elementary school because my Mom was divorced.

I was bullied in high school because I was tender hearted and timid.

Once by a boss and once online... both because I struggle with depression and both as an adult.

The one online empowered me possibly more than anything in my life has before. Was talking with another user about it last night actually. I don’t take shit from anyone about depression anymore and I’m almost more vocal about it. Treating it as a taboo subject just adds to the stigma. Sometimes I think maybe that one was a blessing in disguise.

I think it’s good to be vocal about it. People need to understand what it’s like.
