I just want to say, as someone who was bullied, I was taught by my mother that everyone deserves respect and to turn the other cheek.
While that's great and all, I wish someone would have taught me how to defend myself verbally an physically as well because kids are little ***** .

i understand what OP is trying to say but I think we should continue teaching children that bullying is not ok, if people start to understand why its not ok there's a larger chance it wont happen.
teaching prevention is a more useful tool than fighting back

You're confusing bullying with assault.
#14 to #13 - anon (06/07/2014) [-]
Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others

Assault is the act of creating apprehension of an imminent harmful or offensive contact with a person

Bullying , the kind that they are trying hardest to stop, involves assault.

You might as well say you are confusing gang violence with murder, they involve each other

No, the bullying mentioned in this picture (the type they make laws bylaws and start internet petitions over) are the kind that involve being picked on. Gay kid commit suicide because his classmates kept calling him a fag - we start a movement. Girl drinks bleach because her classmates called her a whore repeatedly - we start a movement. Boy shoots up school because he was ostracized - we start a movement. That's the problem.
If something is getting the **** kicked out of them, it's a legal problem of assault and battery and should be reported to the police. If the person is being picked on by people on facebook? Why should that be anyone's concern? The chick from TLE started an online petition to help the kids of celebrities avoid bullying by websites because a particular gossip site said something about her kid. Instead of telling the world to stop being mean to people (which isn't going to happen - kids are dicks, especially to kids), we should be teaching people to love themselves and stand up for themselves mentally/verbally/emotionally and not react physically.
Everyone getting together and wearing duct tape on their mouth because a kid killed himself after being called a faggot won't stop people from calling other kids fags. Teach the faggots to stand above the discrimination instead of killing themselves and you can make a difference.

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others

Cyberbullying is the use of Information Technology to harm or harass other people in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner

That is what the word means, calling a girl a bitch on the internet is not threating forcing or coercing her , that is just being mean and that is not what bulling is, that is what cyber bullying is.

This picture is about standing up to people who are bullying you, it doesn't mention cyberbullying which is completely different.

That just makes you a bully. Physical violence is not the right response. You can't make bullies go away, in fact beating up a bully always comes with the 50/50 chance that he'll come back stronger or with more bullies and inflict even more pain on you.
It's not about ignoring bullies, it's about not letting them bring you down. It's about accepting the fact that he's gonna call you a retarded faggot with a tiny dick, and just not letting his negativity bring you down. And it's about teaching kids the same thing - hear the bully, but don't listen to them.

Doesn't mean we don't intervene when it's physically happening in front of us, but teaching kids that it will inevitably happen when nobody who will help is looking, and teaching them how to protect themselves or escape those situations is very important.

As opposed to punishing the ones who fight back.

Sure that kid is getting beat up for being smaller, but if other people who see it happening, (assuming it's done out in the open), and help the kid stand up for himself, he won't go through it alone. No one does anything because they're too scared that they'll be next to get the **** beat out of them.

I have both, and i can't tell you that it isn't about being soft and weak. It's about being different. Bullies LOVE when they fight back, that's how they get stimulated.

People need to stop assuming that lifting means better fighting skills or a more functional body (last thing depends on the type of lifting). Start lifting with low reps and high weight, then join an mma-club. You will see... people who think they are the **** just because they can pump some bars in the gym (everyone can do that after enough time) are usually the one who can't complete a whole training in our mma-course and who kick like pussies even after the first 2 months. Most leave after a week because they did expect something else from themselves. Don't get me wrong, lifting is still good to gain weight if you have an ectomorph-like body.

Long story short: don't get a superior complex just because you go to a gym, it can be fatal. Start with realistic views and be honest to yourself, that will bring you far.
#277 to #268 - Tommovdv ONLINE (06/08/2014) [-]
I'm about as ecto as one can get, I lift, I'm a black belt karate, I have a 8-2 amateur MMA record. Lifting helped me a great deal with my ground game and with surviving armbars, leglocks etc. While technique will always win over power as long as you are good enough, having more strength due to lifting will definitely aid you.

So if blue shirt billy had been dead lifting, he could just pick the ****** up and Rampage slam him straight to hell.

#280 to #277 - touchmyfunny (06/08/2014) [-]
My experiance is that people who only lift are more than often overestimating themselves extremly in terms of real sports which take skill, stamina, flexibility and often also a good mind. I am not bashing gym-people, i am now myself more often a week lifting weights than doing anything else the past 2 years (because of time-flexibility reasons).. but yet I still feel the need to point out that just because someone builds muscle at the gym doesn't mean he/she is automatically better at every other real sport eventhough you become stronger and have a bit better chances if your opponent is not a fighter. Some people get such a big ego because of something that is so easy to do if you have a few free hours.
#284 to #280 - Tommovdv ONLINE (06/08/2014) [-]
This is very true. In the end its all about how you use the skills that you posses. Obviously, someone that has no knowledge of fighting, but is a 220 pound bodybuilder, will lose agains a 155 pound MMA fighter. My experience is that when you're squared off against someone that doesn't fight, 3 proper leg kicks are usually enough.

I get your point though. Some people let their ego inflate as much, maybe even more, as their muscles when they have been lifting. Which makes it all the more fun when you beat their ass in a fight without even breaking a sweat.

True, but that's why if you're weaker you become friends with the kids who are cool and stick up for you. I was that guy for a lot of people.

I was. Guess what, sometimes people don't make up things on the internet. In fact, sometimes people on the internet are some great people.

Granted, I act like an utter asshole because that's my humor, but I care about the people around me and I'm very loyal. I may not be the strongest, but I've always given it my all.

Plus, when you're in elementary school or middle school and you're a head taller than everybody else, people are less likely to mess with you or your friends, especially when you're friends with the only guy bigger than you, and we all looked out for our friends, especially the ones smaller than us.
#168 to #152 - anon (06/08/2014) [-]
I was super weak and scrawny in elementary school (bullied) and then I started to beef up in middle school (semi-bullied). However, once I hit the end of middle school I started to win fights with kids without making it look like I threw any punches (dodging or taking the hits like a man only to deliver a few stronger blows), as such, they would get punished severely and I might get a day in detention. After that I wasn't bullied by anyone and I generally became at least somewhat sociable with everyone. Now I also help the people who get bullied out because I sure wish to hell someone like that had been there for me.
#188 - doctorprofessornv ONLINE (06/08/2014) [-]
Unfortunately a big enough portion of society (or at the very least the vocal minority) has gotten it into their heads that all you need to do to stop assholes is to say a few kind words and hug it out. Unfortunately, kind words don't always work, but a fist to the face drives the point home. At the very least, standing up for oneself makes you less of a target, because the vast majority of bullies are just looking for easy targets to make themselves feel superior.

The bigger issue however is the way teachers have been dealing with bullying situations as of late. Often teachers are reluctant to do anything to correct the problem because they fear parental and school board complaints/litigation if they administer discipline (the 'sue everything that I don't like' culture basically). When the bullied kid finally snaps and knocks someone's lights out, both parties are suspended/expelled to 'make it fair' or 'because they instigated violence'. This isn't because they necessarily agree that both parties were at fault, it's just that it is much easier to indiscriminately hand out punishment than to actually make an informed decision and work through the problem.

Society has started touting the 'don't fight back' idea, and the school system supports it because it allows them to avoid actually having to take responsibility for disciplining students.

This topic gets me so mad. When I was in school I was far too small for my age, right up till 12th grade people were giving me **** for my size. the schools suggestions back then were to walk away. This was pretty ****** hard when you wree cornered in an unmonitored part of the school.

These days (11 years out of school and now 6 foot tall) I teach martial arts and self defence. we teach some of the toughest kids you could imagine. Really gentle natured fit, athletic, powerful ******* that make me proud of what I do. and because they do martial arts other kids try to pick on them or bully them at school. These days the schools have this ******** approach where you can be suspended if you retaliate to a bully, but starting a fight does not carry as severe a punishment. I have one student who has changed schools three times because kids hit him and he hits back. We have another who was held off the ground by two older kids while a third beat him senseless, when I asked why he didnt fight back he said because the school would suspend him for it. What kind of society are we where the victims of bullying have lost all right to defend themselves.

And by far the worst case of bullying I have heard of were two of the 6 year olds I teach who were being pushed around and picked on by highschoolers.... more people need to discipline their kids and schools need to stop punishing the victims.

the school systems are to blame for bullying behavior in the first place, per example, say a guy, we'll call him **************** is picking on another kid, well call him, jeff. now, **************** has been bulling jeff for like, 10 years, and he's only been told to not do it again, so jeff finally stands up to **************** , hits him right in the face, **************** doesnt fight back, jeff gets expelled because apparently **************** had family issues that couldnt be put aside so he pushed his anger onto jeff, **************** is off scott free, and jeff is expelled.

I hate how people think that guns are "super easy to get".

These mass shootings are happening in States like Connecticut and California, states with the MOST gun regulation. I live in Florida, and the most recent "gun" related incident was with the Zim Zam.

I understand that gun crime may be an issue in your state. Really, I do, and I have no issue with further regulations that help your people out.

But guns are not "easy to get" in California. There are other reasons why that **** happened. Even so, if regulation makes you feel safer? By all means, do it. Hell, I support you if that's what you guys want to do. But don't come to my area, where this **** isn't happening, and try and tell us we have to accept your laws that make US feel less comfortable.

I have been a tomboy pretty much all my life. I got along so much better with the guys than i did with the girls, and i think they hated me for that for some reason. Maybe it's because i was able to reach a point they never could just because i was able to make friends with guys better. Many girls have tried to start fights with me and some even tried to pull my hair. Only one girl in my life just tipped the scale for me. I was in 6/7th grade gym class, and there was a girl and her little **** group of friends that were making fun of me for hanging out with a boy. Calling me gay, freak, weirdo etc. I ignored her because you know words are just words. But then she said, "you know, if he was your boyfriend, you would have the ugliest boyfriend." To which i responded, "yeah, but at least i can get one." That zinger must have struck a nerve with her because then she started coming after me pulling my hair and scratching my face. The fury of all my held in anger just flew out and the first thing i did with grab her by the throat and just kept squeezing harder until she was gasping. I let her go, and she coughed a few times, but she would have been fine otherwise. Never again did she bother me. And to this day, i still get along better with guys than i do girls

I remember hearing about a study that showed that anti-bullying campaigns actually increased mostly because they just gave bullies more ideas on how they could bully.

Teaching kids to stand up for themselves not only is an effective way to deal with bullies, it teaches a life lesson: You need to stand up for yourself and you can't expect everyone else to drop everything and sing Kumbaya every time you get upset.
#124 - anon (06/08/2014) [-]
To be honest, I consider it an important part of childhood development. Part of life is realising there will ALWAYS be an asshole or group of assholes giving you **** because they can. You have to learn to stand up for yourself. You simply won't function in life if you just bottle it up. If my kid got suspended/expelled for fighting some little ******* in retalliation, I'd make sure he knew I was proud of him/her.
User avatar #79 - fuckthehabs (06/07/2014) [-]
You can only go so far with that though. While I've only been teaching for a short time, I can guarantee you that there are many kids who literally cannot stand up for themselves. Either they're way too small and risk getting beat to death or mentally not strong enough and will go home and end their lives because of it. Just because it doesn't apply to you doesn't mean it helps no one. And don't call it the "pussification of a nation" or what have you, we're at the very beginning of a long shift from violence to peace. Are these laws that the government is passing truly efficient? No, of course not, and to add onto that some of them are god awful (ie students getting suspended for fighting back against their bullies), but like I said, this is the beginning and we can't expect to be happy with the earliest reforms.

To think human nature will ever change is foolish, people from birth are violent, selfless and just plain disgusting individuals.
The peaceful society and all behaviour related to it is learned and passed down from older and wiser people to the younger generations, that is how human society has been able to get this far, it is not inherited at any level.
The mind of a child is a great place to see this, you heave to basically teach a child not to kill other children because that child has something they want. Do not even try telling me that would not happen, kids left alone with other children, especially those under the age of 6 often kill even their siblings for no logical reason.

So no we are not going through a shift from violence to peace, we are continuing to teach violent individuals how to be less violent to put it bluntly.

The obvious solution is the most brutal one, which is to teach kids what is right, what is wrong and how to defend themselves from those who can not distinguish the two.
being small is no excuse, what if we were taught that everyone stands up to a bully instead of just the one being bullied?
Do you think a bully would do it again if all their peers turned on them and gave them a taste of their own medicine all at once?
I know at one stage in my childhood i myself was a bully, and that would have stopped me being a cunt to people for no damned reason pretty quickly.

But how do you get a bully's group to turn on them when they are perceived as being cool? Wouldn't you need to, in one form or another, spread the word/idea that bullying is wrong? That is the direction behind the whole "anti-bullying" movement, but they're not acting with the direction properly. if it clears up my stance at all, I'm for the movement, but disagree with what it's done so far

How about instead of an anti bullying movement we actually try teaching children how to interact with others?
I had no ******* idea when i was a kid, you are literally set loose on a playground with little to no supervision and expected to just know how to behave in society and if the kid ***** up it was the parents fault who was also taught poorly and given no instruction hand book on how to teach a child.

There should be entire classes dedicated to human interaction but the chances of that ever happening are mind bogglingly low because concerned mothers are more worried about little jimmy getting cyber bullied.

So what you're saying is instead of progressing the anti bully movement, get kids to learn how to interact with each other through the means of a supervised program that shows kids proper interaction with others? I don't think you know how much you and I agree with each other. In a way, that is an anti-bully movement as it would aim to end bullying, but by other means that haven't been taken yet that should have.

And when everyone's a victim? No one will be! Problem solved! The problem is not the people trying to change things but those on both sides who resist change because they're're homophobic or racist or whatever other crap. No one can know these changes won't work since such laws have never been introduced so its not 'an inconvenient truth'. The real inconvenient truth is that things got bad enough the law had to change so we know 'being a man (as define by the wavelength of light reflected by your shirt)' definitely does not work.

I got bullied (physically and psychologically) almost every day from the time i was in 1st grade until i was a freshman in highschool.

I finally snapped and fought back, and no one ****** with me until mid sophomore year.
again i fought back, and once they realized i was done being pushed around, they stopped trying to push me around.

I told my little brother that if this a-hole down the street puts his hands on him, pop the punk in the mouth.
he did, got in a bit of trouble for it, but it's been over 3 weeks, the kid avoids my little brother.

Violence isn't the ANSWER, it's the SOLUTION.
