In grade school and high school it was guys that were unsuccessful getting into my sisters pants. There were plenty of 'em - six or seven.

Online bullies seem to be more evenly spread among male and female.

I actually don't recall getting a clear explanation, but it was a pattern I recognized.

My sister was a hottie and I was her dumpy little brother.

The bullies didn't always come out on top by the way. Even way back then I never ran from a bully.

Bud, what area in our country did you grow up in...only asking because I think you and I are of the same generation, where I grew up in the Northeast being 1 of 4 girls(all hotties too lol) and my sisters and I never felt we needed our guy friends or our Dad to stick up for us back then...we truly were tough as nails little girls and as teenage girls back then..but that could be because our dad was a Marine having all girls who raised us to be that way. So it blows my mind how some women in 2017 "feel oppressed", whereas my sisters and I never felt oppressed as little girls in the 60's, oppressed as teenage girls in the 70's or oppressed as working women in the 80's.

No one bullied me. They tried, but did not succeed. I think girls bully worse, but not physically. More with rumors, gossip, taunting, lying, and plain old meanness, especially to other girls.

The way I see it boys will beat the living crap out of you for fun or because you're an easy target, while girls wont beat you but they will destroy other girls mentally.

With boys, eventually it comes to a head and they get in a fight and it's usually over with.
With girls, bullying can last years, telling lies, making fun of clothes, looks, hair, etc etc etc...

No one bullied me either when I was a teenage girl in the 70's(my sister tried to, but failed lol). You're 100% right that girl bully's are worse with their rumors, gossip, taunting, lying and plain old mean girl meanness towards other girls, only because THEY'RE JEALOUS of those girls...unfortunately it doesn't stop for those type of girls even when they become women. When I was in my 20's and 30's working for 'Corporate' America, man some of the women I worked with back then were so nasty, jealous, and hate filled towards their fellow females working at the company we worked for. I found my male co-workers and male bosses to be much more accepting of their female co-workers who were smart and hard workers, therefore wanting to help us advance in the company....whereas A LOT of the women working there would become your enemy when you got a promotion because they as "feminists" assumed you got that promotion ONLY because "you're pretty"...this is unfortunately the mindset of some women on the left.

The worse was 3 guys bullying my friend and myself in first year of high school. Mostly when we played hockey, getting tripped, nailed to the boards, slashed in the legs etc.

All **** hell broke lose in grade 10 as I got much bigger by my doing weight training and gaining mass.
First day one the ice, and I crossed checked one of the bullies and sent him head first in the boards, knocked him out cold.
The other two though I was crazy ... lol needless to stayed away from me and they never bullied me again, in fact they were scared to touch the puck. lol

Being older, I lived in a time when bullying never really existed, or I never noticed it...fights were always one to one and you won or lost, but no groups ganged up on anyone, in fact I was part of the biggest group and we never picked on anyone....they were good times..

I got bullied in grade 2 for...about 2 weeks? The girl sitting behind me in class would bang on my shoulder and say "do this, or do that." It didn't last long...but it seems to be noteworthy to me...since I remembered it... Oh and also in Grade 8...there were 2 girls who bullied the class. They were not mean to me; but they were to another classmate...and I feel that I should have done more in her defense.

I went to an all boys school until I was 14, the bullying was relentless by many and always in gangs, never one on one. I literally thought I was going to die at school. They would break into my locker and destroy my homework, steal my lunch, always beat me up or make me take the blame for anything they did. The teachers would cane me regularly as I was the one they blamed for supposedly being the trouble maker. Then one day when I was 12, something snapped inside and i realised that they couldn't hurt me more than they were, so when a group started to taunt me, I king hit the biggest guy in the group and hurt him as much as possible until I lost, but in the process he had a blood nose and ripped clothes. I survived and i did this a few times until they realised that bullying now came at a price. So they reluctantly gave up. I went to a mixed/mostly girls school for my final two years. The girls were all great, never had an issue with anyone.

Thanks for sharing Oz, I'm sorry that you were tormented the way you were, seems it was worse than my torment. I hate them even today, to the point that when I saw younger children bullying another I stepped in at got one of them by the shirt threatening them.

Thanks and sorry you were too. I think the measure of bullying is about how it affects a person emotionally and mentally rather than the scale of physical harassment. There were moments when I would have hurt many of them had a gun been available and this horrifies me now but gives me an insight into how some school shootings can occur and now at a much older age, I put the responsibility onto the teachers who knew it was going on but chose not to get involved. As one said to me, this is normal behaviour and you will work out a way to solve it. Well he'd be the first one I would have shot.

I told them but then they'd phone the school and were told that I was exaggerating or that I was the one causing the problems, so once I realised that my parents weren't on my side, I just withdrew from them and everyone.

I'm sure they would have said something if you had built up trust with them.

I asked mine years later why they didn't believe me, and my mom said that she lacked confidence and was naive and always was taught to listen to educated adults over children. The problem was there were a number of times in my childhood where I was expecting my mother to stand up for me or my siblings, and she would always cave in to even requests for an adult over the concerns of her children. For instance, once someone living in the street knocked on the door and accused me of vandalising his letter box. It was probably a case of mistaken identity but my mother didn't question him or listen to me, but I was caned by my father and forced to clean up his letter box. So I have always felt that when push came to shove, that I could never rely on her to be there for us. I grew up with serious trust issues with all adults so I have spent a lot of time trying to overcome that.

I was never bullied in my teens..... however as a Freshman in HS with my older sister being a Senior and her and I having the same lunch period, she as a popular(loud/obnoxious) cheerleader for our HS, would try to embarrass me as well as my friends during lunch the first month of our Freshman year in HS. Eh she eventually backed off when she realized she was getting no reaction from me and only embarrassing herself during our lunch period while TRYING to embarrass me lol!
I will say though, that at the time it did bother me that my oldest sister was trying to "bully" me as a Freshman....but living with her/growing up with her I knew how her mind worked, therefore knowing that if you just ignore her and don't feed into her constant need for any kind of attention, she will eventually go away lol!!
