Quote# 90053

I have a confession to make; I was bullied when I was in grammar school, and I went to both state run and private schools during my time in grammar school. In both, I was bulled and the staff did little to nothing to stop it. I also grew up with homosexual attractions while I was in the private grammar school which was also a very conservative Roman Catholic School. But I survived and I am still very thankful for my Roman Catholic education for providing me an great education not only on the “ 3 R’S” but on moral values and ethics.

Now, I must say, at the time, the bullying seemed to have no real value. I was bullied because of me weight, of a tumor I had on right side of my cheek, a small pony tail that I used to have, of my learning disability and my alleged and actually true homosexual “crush” on another student, which was actually my first “crush.” But unlike today, I fought back. Well, I did not really fight anyone, I “ripped” on them back.

Today, I hardly talk to them and when I do, we just laugh at it. People mature and people move on. I strongly believe that a bully in his childhood is a bully in his/her adulthood. And if they are, they are most likely just passive-aggressive arses.

Without the bullying that I went through as a child and early teenager, I would not able to survive in adult world today. I had have supervisors that were just plain dicks, and guess what, I am still living. If you can’t handle grammar, middle and high school and the bullies that come with it, then I’m sorry, you are the problem, not the bully.

Currently, especially in the U.S, we seem to have an all of a sudden focus on children and teenagers that are homosexual. There are claims that we need to protect them from the bullies because if someone “harasses” based on their sexuality, they are “harmed” so how. That they need to be a protected class because…well I haven’t really heard a reason why from the advocate for it.

Firstly, I grew up homosexual in a Roman Catholic private school, I was told every day that people like myself was going to hell. In fact, my private school and parish went one step further and preached that even having homosexual attractions was a sin, let alone acting on them. So, I felt like crap and at times, I did want to kill myself. But guess what? I survived through the medicine.

Yes, I am saying that the bullying of homosexual teens is beneficial to them, because it will teach them how to fight back and that not everyone is going to accept homosexuality just because it is “the right and smart thing to do”. There is going to ignorant people out there and people are going to “cling to their religion”, deal with it. It will also teach them not to be ahem...overly expressive in professional environments.

I so "like" bullying apologists:
Children should be themselves except when they don't fit the societal norms to the T because then they deserve to be tortured into it, who cares the consequences.


For the record: I was bullied for being big (fat if you want, but also strong), shy, smart and nerdy, in an elementary school were bulling was tolerated* and teachers openly corrupt**.

Ah. I still lovingly call the place the ninth circle of hell.

It was a great lesson for life too!
- "Talent and hard work do nothing for success, having the right connections, fitting into the right preconceptions and having money do." This didn't make me conform more though just killed my ambition and my ability to give a shit.
- Also "Always mind your back.", "Don't show weakness." and "Don't let them attack from multiple sides." both literally and metaphorically... if someone thinks, this means I have trust issues, is absolutely right.


* I got punished more for daring to fight back then my bullies. And yes, plural, I could deal with one easily so the dirty little cowards were never alone. Bullies never attack a target if they are in any danger losing. Never pick on someone "their size" (except if they outnumber her 3 to 1 at least) and never fight fair.
** The best of my class were the wealthiest children. Take of it what you will.

@Malitia

Ha! Having spoken to old classmates it really is the few who struck it rich who have "gifted" children.

They also get the VIP treatment at various non-profits and preservation agencies.

@Crunk: I'm sure Anglican Prussia will never again make the mistake of having a tumor. Now fuck off you piece of shit.

Tolpuddle Martyr

So...you survived and fuck anyone who didn't or doesn't?

Lovely.

My sympathies for how you were treated, and for the fact that you turned out to be such a raging dick!

Also Crunk, you are a miserable piece of shit. See that sentence, it's short and summed up everything that was in the disgusting tale you just related to the rest of us. The next time you feel the need to share, keep it short!

I usually don't point things like this out, but after reading your comment I am fairly certain that you missed some things in grammar school.

Malitia here has said just about everything I wanted to say, so as another victim I'd just share a bit of my own thoughts here.

Back then, if I had access to firearms, I would've definitely pulled a Columbine.

Even now, many years later. I still think it might be worth it.

See? That's what bullying does to people.

Sometimes learning to deal with bullying can toughen someone up, true. Other times though, bullying can destroy someone's self confidence or even drive them to suicide. It depends on the person and the circumstances.

Overall though, I don't see as this is really fundie. It's expressing an opinion I don't really agree with, but that doesn't make it fundie.

Either a plant for a very disgusting cause, a masochist, or a classic case of Stockholm Syndrome.

Holy shitsnacks, Crunk!

If you're a woman, you are without a miserable, backstabbing little twat & I sincerely pity any person that has the misfortune of knowing or working with you. If you're a man, I wouldn't be surprised to fnd that you have a record for DV.

I was among the relatively lucky & did not suffer much bullying-a bit but not much. Only 1 girl was unwise enough to pick a fight with me (twice actually) & she did not get away with it. Smacking someone's head into a wall will often do the trick. It's a sad fact that sometimes violence can only be countered with more violence.

The film "Equilibrium":

DuPont (Angus MacFadyen): 'Wait! Wait! Look at me. Look at me. I'm life. I live... I, I breathe... I feel. Now that you know it... can you really take it? Is it really worth the price?'

John Preston (Christian Bale): 'I pay it gladly.'

Seen by some as "1984", if Winston Smith bullied Big Brother. Turned his own Thoughtcrime against him.

"Star Trek"'s Earth of the future, as envisioned by Gene Roddenberry. A world devoid of war, hunger, want, and bigotry. Of all kinds. Including homophobia.

That is all.

Everybody is bullied on time or another. But sometimes IT GOES TOO FAR! That's what I'm against. And if someone is a bully, their parents are probably bullies and bottom line, IT DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT!

So, Crapp? Howzit feel to have the truth out?

By the way...Bill Gates is a major geek but he's worth BILLIONS!

You, on the other hand are a nobody!

Have fun wallowing in your own shit, Turd-Troll!

Don't know whether to support making bullying itself a crime. In making bullying a crime how are they defining "bullying"?

@Anon-e-moose: You are really arguing in favour of 'thoughtcrime'? Is that really, really the sort of society you want to live in?

If so, you are a frightening person. No less so than some of the fundies who get quoted on here.

Educating people is one thing. Prosecuting them, not for something they do, but for something they think, is not the hallmark of a liberal democracy. It is the hallmark of a totalitarian state.

That was not Gene Roddenberry's vision. His vision was of a future where people have become enlightened of their own free will, not of a future where they are told what to think by the state.

Crunk, you need a serious dose of your own medicine. Can anyone here can find his IP address and send him a buttload of computer viruses? It would do the world a favor if this bully asshat wasn't able to provide an opinion on anything that matters.

Sorry to open up a godwin, but ..

If bullying is beneficial to the victims, shouldn't the Holocaust survivors be giving accolades to the Nazi's for creating in them such fine character?

@smartz

I'd call 4chan but 4chan are like this Crunk guy.

Perhaps we can have an Anonymous-type thing that goes after bigots, bullies, abusers, corrupt officials, extreme trolls, etc.

Good-guy Trolls & Hackers that go after people WHO DESERVE IT!

I follow your reasoning, I just find it hard to accept that anyone could be that dumb.

Why do a lot of people who went through hard times feel that their resent is best directed at those who didn't go through it, rather than at the person or people who put them through it?

10/16/2012 3:27:26 AM



Why do I smell bullshit here?. Most of the formers victims of bullying are much more embittered than you.

Why should homosexuals have to "fight back" in the first place? Their lifestyle and sexual orientation are none of anybody's business.

11/25/2012 1:18:52 AM



This is not fundi, bizarre and kind of sad but not fundi. There's sort of a point here, if people were constantly told what they wanted to hear all the time they wouldn't be able to function in a real world where people aren't going to agree with you.

@SpukiKitty
Can you not pic spam disgusting pictures because of your need to bully bullies?
