    Did you do anything about it?

    For me I've been insulted plenty of times, like being told I look, smell and dress like an ogre/hobo. But usually people ignore my existence but when they don't, they laugh at it.

      I've only been bullied in elementary and I have met alot of people who have also been bullied in elementary. Actors and singers also reveal in interviews they have been bullied when they were in school.

      I remember one time in elementary during lunch time, I wanted to play with a ball but my classmates wouldn't let me and they grabbed my arms. I managed to set one of my arms free and I scratched one of the girls neck who was grabbing my arms and she started to bleed. My classmates immediately sent her to the nurse's office and when she came out, she was wearing a big cast around her neck.

      Another time in a school van, I was getting sexually harassed by two boys who were 14-16 years old and I was only 12. I was a shy quiet girl and the boys kept trying to get me to talk and they were touching my arms and breasts.

      Middle and High School was alot better for me because I did not get bullied or sexually harassed.

        In elementary school, where the teacher would take part in it. Eventually, it turned physical.

        Then in 9th grade, by someone I nearly considered a friend.

        I face a low-key harrassment from my mother on a practically daily basis. I've learned to live with it; they're just words and I've heard it all before. Beyond that...I don't really have enough contact with other people to experience this any more. My response to it was just to avoid the people involved when I was younger.

          Is it just me or are bullies always either a really short guy who's overcompensating or is someone who's really big and obese with a serious case of dunning kruger effect?

          I was the really short guy being bullied all throughout elementary school. Finally stopped in junior high, even though I was (and still am) really short.

          I was bullied for liking what I liked, and being quiet, but then when I tried to talk, I was still picked on for trying to talk. It was a lose/lose situation for me when I was younger. Though, as I got older I got a kinda psyduck you mentality, and walked around more confidently. Kinda learned that ultimately, kids are just assholes. Like all the way up til college slaps them in the face and they realize bullying got em nowhere. lol

          What's sad is that kids usually bully because they're either mistreated themselves, or have confidence issues also, but like.. there's other ways to handle that.

          All throughout regular school and in college.
          A few highlights include:
          my clothes and school work being destroyed in 7th grade during gym
          A kid in 8th grade bringing a knife to school to kill me
          The principal saying I stole a book and suspending me in 7th grade
          A teacher suspending me for defending myself from a bully in 9th grade
          A girl threatening to kill me in 11th grade
          A teacher in 11th grade failing me because she thought i wasn't smart
          Having my textbooks that I just bought for $600 stolen in college
          Teachers in college telling me to leave their program because I'm autistic

          Yes. I was bullied in preschool, bullied in elementary school, teased in middle school & high school, and harassed sexually by this guy CONSTANTLY on the school bus in senior year. =/ My parents used to harass me and call me names, too, but they've mostly stopped because I started fighting back.

          I've been harassed online, too, but nowhere near as bad when I was bullied/harassed in school. Also, most of the time, the teasing was because of how "weird" I was or the fact I liked Pokemon..... sigh.

            Boy howdy have I. I was bullied a bit in elementary school and a lot in middle school. Got called awful names and was even harassed online by the same people too. It made me do some awful things I regret and habits I’ll be stuck with for the rest of my life. So thanks for that.

            I’m obviously sugarcoating what I went through because no one needs full on details but.. it wasn’t fun, at all. Middle schoolers are cruel and relentless.

                  So, I'm the only one who wasn't actively bullied then? There were definitely plenty of people who were mean to me or times people were assholes to me, but people never really went out of their way to make me a target or anything. I was mostly left alone.

                    I was picked on a few times throughout school but as it turns out when you have a black belt in martial arts you don't get bullied very much.

                    I knew those classes would pay off. haha

                    There was always teasing in school, but I was so happy to find high school was really nothing like all those bad 90s films made it seem like.

                    Nothing like that.

                    Its hard to say if people REALLY bullied or harassed me, but i've felt like they did in past years when they would tell me that 'girly girls are bad people'. Because i can't stomach the idea of being a bully for ANY reason and i've always grew up a girly girl who doesn't naturally like 'boys' stuff very much. I'd like to think I can just like what I want and not worry if it'll hurt other people in the end. >:(

                      I've been bullied and I've been the bully. Ultimately in a society that teaches you that your own progress is worth more than the happiness and health of others is going to breed a dog eat dog mentality where people act out to seem more powerful and less of a target themselves.

                        I have Asperger's syndrome/"high functioning" autism and bipolar 2 disorder. In addition, I've been overweight since I was about eight years old. Due to my poor social skills, my weight, and my tendency to cry easily, I was mercilessly bullied from the ages of 4 to 18.

                        People would call me names like the "r-word", fatso, ugly, etc. One kid said he'd be my friend "if I weren't so fat". People would ask me out as a joke and then laugh at me if I accepted.

                        Because of all of this (and more), I was hospitalized twice, both times on suicide watch. I still get very depressed at times, but never like that. I was also suspended twice for defending myself against bullies, but the bullies never got punished and were never forced to apologize (but I was).

                        I still have trust issues with other women. In school, the girls I knew were catty and would spread rumors about you while pretending to be your friend. The guys were usually more direct if they didn't like you. I still get along better with men than women - my best friend is a man.

                        Bullying and joblessness have both wrecked my self-esteem. If any of you who are reading this have bullied someone or have been a bully, please remember that you could ruin someone's life forever.

                          Nothing like that.
                          The 90s bullying is a joke. Bullying is far more cruel than that.

                            I bullied and was bullied, and believe it was necessary for me to be bullied.

                            I think it's hard to find someone that hasn't been bullied in some form. I just think we all get it at one point for one reason or another.

                            I've always been bullied for the fact that I'm so short and I still do now. And it never really bothered me because I'd just fight back. Now a days I'll just turn around and tell you to kiss my ass.

                            It pretty much comes with being gay. It's gone all the way from elementary school to now, and I'm sure it'll keep going until I'm dead.

                              I did but we all bullied each other in my high school. I never let it get to me.

                              I actually became friends with somebody who I picked on at first in middle school.

                                Been bullied all my school life because I had low level asperges and people never liked that I was off doing my own thing instead of what everyone else was doing.

                                Never had true friends at all, and it ain't starting now.
