is it the 2011 documentary or the 2001 movie? i saw the movie in high school, but i don't remember a damn thing.

i wasn't bullied per se but i got picked on and made fun of quite a bit. no one ever stole my lunch money or stuffed me in a locker, but i was ostracized by a lot of girls for being weird and boys didn't wanna play with me cause i was a girl. this was at catholic school. i'd come home crying a lot and my mom would just tell me to ignore them, which in hindsight i don't think was the best advice.

in high school (predominantly mexican) i was given grief for, again, being different and a "school girl." just can't win, man! i had a lot of friends, though. my friend in cheerleading said i was popular for being unpopular... whatever that means.

I got picked on a lot, but like ****** I never got physically hurt or threatened. I was smart and a little weird. I wouldn't stick up for myself. In 6th grade I went into a class where every day two of the guys leaving the class would say terrible things to me, mostly related to my appearance (I had crazy hair and was a little overweight). There were other people who made fun of me, but I remember having dreams about them and being anxious to go to Social Studies every day.

I guess in elementary school I didn't get bullied a lot, but in middle school I did. I just hung out with the other weird-but-not-dangerous kids in elementary, plus I was good at sports so I had all guy buddies or whatever, in-school friends. Once I got depressed and stopped participating in sports I got picked on a lot more. Plus I wore SP shirts every day. I got all As but never really talked in class or participated much.

So I guess I wouldn't call that severely.

I used to bully other kids (OH MY GOD NO WAY), but I was also bullied by the kids on my block pretty relentlessly. Hit in the head "accidentally" with baseball bats, shot with b.b. guns, there was one time this guy's older psycho brother sicced his doberman on me. He also tried to steal my bike by saying he'd slit my throat but I called his bluff. That was after the doberman thing. I think he's in prison now, reminds me of richard ramirez's brother really. his little brother would always talk about how many guns his bro had and what a vato he was and his hand grenades and how he killed people as a navy seal or whatever. Yeah.

In middle school i kept beating up honors class students so they put me in a "contained classroom" not unlike namond's special class on the 4th season of the wire, and it was filled with kids that were in and out of juvie

they beat the living shit out of me. little bourgeois white boy that didn't want to behave. they should have.

in high school there was a biology class where there were a crew of "thugs" (I contend how thug they were because they were at school every day) that would throw shit at me all class long because i got on with the teacher who had zero control over the class. They'd call me cracker and whitey and shit, last day of school they celebrated my graduation by pouring an entire aquarium full of pebbles all over me. I never reacted to them, not even once.

now i bully people on the internet



....

i was bullied pretty mercilessly, and while i only got my ass kicked about half a dozen times, i wouldn't consider physical violence to be the threshold between getting bullied and getting picked on. trauma is trauma, and it's worse when adults and authority figures ignore it, or minimize it or partake in it, all of which happened to me. i had more than one teacher join in when kids were fucking with me. that fucked me up good.

and in retrospect, i wouldn't call those kids inherently evil, because they were responding to their surroundings the only way they know how.

but those adults. i fully hate their guts until this very day. i wish miserable, prolonged deaths on them.

the guy that shot me with a bb gun had his cousin call me saying she wanted to meet me after school and then she never showed up

i found out she was his cousin later, and then she called again like the prank would work a second time.

I went to two small private Christian schools my whole school career and it was very interconnected. People from each school went to both and back and forth and half the people I hung out with were from my church. Then, for a few years, both schools merged. So, everyone really knew everyone and I was always squarely middle ground (although I was definitely known as the Pumpkins fan *groan*). I wasn't super popular but there wasn't a bully problem per se. The teachers stamped that shit out quick.

Although there was one kid who was a teacher's son and he used to be pretty cruel to kids in middle school; I was one of his targets for a school year before I stood up to him, verbally, and the next year we were thick as thieves. I still had to kind of hold him at arm's length though.

So, no, unless there was "obvious" socially-stunted kids, the bullying was minimal. And even with the "obvious" kids, I don't think they got it really bad but you'd have to ask them.

And I'm terrified of my daughter and her going to school. I have no idea how to handle things until they happen and I don't know what I'd tell her because I never told my parents when I'd get razzed by the school bully because I was too embarrassed and didn't want them to worry.

my grade school experiences were terrifying. if i have a kid i don't think i could ever take them to a public school. but maybe that's just putting window dressing on a problem. i don't know

not to go all grandpa but kids now are lucky there's quite a bit more awareness on bullying. when i was in jr high and high school it was pretty much encouraged all the way from the teachers up to the top faculty

Is this the documentary that was given an R16 rating because of the verbal and physical abuse that thirteen year olds gave each other in it?

i plan on watching this tonight. the trailer looked pretty good.

i didn't get bullied much. in seventh grade i teased a kid in our class a bunch, then i found out he was transferring to another school so at my friend's urging, i took him aside on his last day and apologized. his name was rodney.

oh man, there was that time freshman year someone threw gum in my hair and i pretended not to notice. then i went home and got it out with baby oil.

when i was a junior my parents moved to the suburbs and i had to switch schools and leave all my pals. it was terribly hard for me to make friends. my only one was a very tall red-headed boy named Devin in my english class who also rode my bus; i introduced him to deviantart. i ate in the cafeteria by myself a few times until one day i was just sitting there eating and a group of white boiz, for no reason, threw a bottle cap at me and laughed. then i mostly started chillin' in the library during lunch after a stint of eating in the restroom.

eventually i met a few girls in choir who i ate with on 'B' days.

i got one of those boiz back several years later when i was working at starbucks and ground a roach in his drink.

thankfully my mother allowed me to return to my old high school for the final semester of my senior year. she did blame me for not wanting to make friends in rockwall, though. :/

I used to think that as a kid I was bullied because people didn't like, me. I realised years later I was bullied because I didn't like people. Something must have unnerved them about my anti-social attitude. Maybe they thought I thought I was superior (I just MIGHT have actually thought I was). I read a report from kindergarten saying I didn't play with other kids and wouldn't participate in group activities unless forced to. Turns out I was right for not liking people, they kinda suck. Or maybe I just think that because I don't like people so they never gave me a reason to like them....it's so confusing.
