When's the last time you had to stand up for yourself? What made you have to do that and how did you handle it?

Honestly, people don't really mess with me. They dislike me, yes, and are bold enough to voice it, but that's it.

I've realized that I'm more likely to ignore people than to bother standing up against them. I often just don't care what they say to me haha. I occasionally help people if they're being picked on, though.

A friend of mine has quite a temper, though, and occasionally goes after me if I anger him, even over something stupid. So fighting back is really the only thing I have to do that comes near "standing up for myself", for the most part. It isn't exactly a serious thing to me, though. Something about having someone (who is oddly strong for his size) full out tackle me, then having him pinned by his throat in under a minute is enjoyable.
Both of Dipu's stories made me laugh.

I don't really have to stand up for myself much so I don't remember the last time that happened. Sadly I don't have much to contribute.

The only thing I can think of is my extremely long scientific rebuttal to my dad's claim "time doesn't exist".

I have to stand up for myself because most other kind individuals shy away from bullies or try to ignore and I don't. I'm not indirect either, will face them head on because you can't sugarcoat with a bully. You have to show them why they're wrong and be direct about it. If they use oneliners, just make fun of their reptilian brain. If they use memes, just attack their copycat nature and show them how it's a virus of the mind with little thought process. You must pick them apart, make them feel bullied because bullies will not stop attacking like a cancer and you must fight that cancer.

While I was at work, it came to my attention that a student had complained to his father about me. The basic complaint was that I wasn't doing my job properly, which led to the dad questioning why a female was working as a martial arts instructor.

It was pretty darn hard to stop myself from punching him, but I did have a go at him xD

I had to stand up to one of my friends one time in high school because he was bullying one of my other friends for his life choices. It was hard, but I had to do it. Needless to say we are no longer friends, but I am ok with that as I stood up for what was right.

when i was young i was into fights like a thug...i even tried to start fights so i can annoy sometimes beat someone.....then after high school i began to stop bothering about fights,found out it's boring and the more you keep fighting the boredom levels gets higher and higher....so i just prefer silence! not to mention i'm more like TNT whenever i start showing my anger...so better not to make me angry ;3

Should have karate chopped his face, anyway.

Standing up for myself? It's been quite some time since I've had to (guess I've had it easy) but the last time I remember was when me and a whole bunch of other friends were playing soccer and the ball got loose and a fairly ghetto looking group of kids picked it up. My friends were too afraid of confronting them, but I wasn't gonna let them just take it, so I went up to them and asked for the ball back. I didn't show my temper, though (I hate groups that boss people around), but I was tensing up for a fight. Not much happened though, the most was a little bit of mockery which I didn't let phase me. One of them dared me to kiss a member of their group so I could get the ball back (an ugly fiend, I am sorry HAH). I was really tempted to say some mean ****, but I realized 7 against 1 wouldn't work in my favor. So I made a joke out of it "Nah chill... she's too good for me". I guess it was my guts to stand up along with that joke that made them give the ball back. They did say afterwards "You were pretty damn gutsy, good ****".

Oh, I remember another time! A bit more serious, since police ended up being involved. Though this was more my fault, I'll admit. Long story short, the soccer ball I kicked flew out of the part, bounced on the pavement, then slammed into a car. Didn't break anything, but the witch inside flipped out. I went over to her, tried to calm her down, but she look at me and said she was gonna call the cops. I was trying to get her to chill out and pointed out that there weren't any damages. She was still gonna call them anyway, and she did. So I stood there, wondering "The **** just happened". I was pretty scared, I'll admit. The cops couldn't do much aside from possibly confiscating the ball, but that didn't cross my mind at the moment. The cops came, and it was a small court room case. At that point, though, my friends flocked behind me and defended me, and in the end, the cops let it go. I, er, did flip the lady off when she wasn't looking.


The last time I actually had to fight was a long long time ago.

Everyone was blaming me for 'sending a Viagra advertisement setup on my brothers email' and I stood up for myself, kinda rudely. I would never do that! I don't even know how to!

Plus if I did know, I would set up a Pokemon advertisement deal instead. xD
