Marky...bullying isn't only in actions...it is also in words... Like on here on Amirite.
Please see my Comment below.
I did bully boys as a kid. Mostly because I thought it was so cute that they lost to a girl. Many of them wound up being those "elementary school Boyfriends" you know when you just hang out and kiss on the cheek. I guess I always liked boys that lose to me
Thank you Janet for being honest.
Hehe bless ya. 乂^◡^乂
Perhaps I wasn't being clear.
Most people on here have bullied in their life. On AMirite. If you don't recognize it you are blind.
If you pick on someone and harass them...that's bullying...that's happened on here to me...instead people will block.....or unfriend.
Making it more clear...Bullying goes far past discussing...it goes to the point of pointing fingers...which is bullying when it is one-sided. It's isn't what might have happened in the school-yard...instead...it's happens in the adult school yard and the rules and symptoms are different. The symptoms CAN BE blocking and unfriending.
I'm NOT making a big deal about it.
So...let's just admit it... It happens.
You are most welcome
I will be the first to admit and no I ain't proud of my actions but yes I lost my temper and said things that were hurtful while I did apologize it doesn't change the fact that I was a bully.
I know better than anyone that words sting and hurt sometimes they hurt for a lifetime I know because today I still feel the pain for the things that have been said to me on here and off here.
I was bullied in my childhood, in my adult life, and even online and each time it has brought me to the point where I thought ending my life would have been better than dealing with the pain. If I felt that way I can only imagine how I made someone feel for my actions.
I am making it my goal to make sure I don't become the type of person that almost destroyed me.
Life is to short and to precious to fight, argue, and bully. My parents taught me to always remember we never know the battle that someone faces and to be kind to others because their battle might be worse. Sometimes I even forget what I was taught even if I do keep those words close to my heart.
Could you make a comment on the bullying that does happen every day...in particular online...even nice people will bully...
There might be a discussion online. But the minute a heated argument ensues...and someone starts pointing a finger...starts blaming...it segues into harassment...and that is the beginning of bullying online... And someone else might Block or unfriend...verifying the validity of the bullying...
There are bullies online...of course on here.
Well there is not respecting someone's beliefs, making people feel that they are wrong because they don't agree with another.
People seem to get upset if people don't agree so people agree for the sake of not being bullied. It shouldn't be that way. Our different ideas is what makes us all unique.
If someone doesn't agree with me then I should respect that and move on not become bitter and hateful over it.
I agree! There are people who always tend to agree...and some of the reason might be because people will try to verbally bully and intimidate you ... Point the finger at you if you don''t go along with what they say...
It's not easy being yourself when that happens...especially here on Amirite. Smart people back off when arguments escalate where someone begins to point fingers...blame and shame...in order to bully someone into agreeing.
I don't agree with people bullying someone in to agreement. I think people should have the right to say "while I see your point I don't agree and here is what I think" or even say "I am sorry I don't see the point and here is how I feel" without the fear of retaliation.
I think people should be able to stand up and say how they feel and not feel that they have to agree just to keep a friend. That ain't friendship at all.
I have found myself doing that agreeing and walking away to prevent an argument then I sit here on the other side of the screen thinking "why did I do that, I am me and I should be proud of that not ashamed".
Ya big bully Sukie. 乂^◡^乂
Step Out Side Ya Monster....
What about me for the stripper? 乂^◡^乂
Fortunately I was never bullied growing up, I had older siblings and they weren't about to let anyone bully me. But people have tried to bully me here on Amirite, but they didn't succeed. I do think that when a person defriends or blocks because they don't like your opinion, then to me, that is a form of bullying, and probably the worse kind. Guess they don't realize that this is an opinion site.
I hate bullies, they are cowards and they usually have backups, but catch one alone, and it's a whole different story.
I have never bullied anyone until i started reading comments on the internet.
I thought that all of you who had a 1 inch square wasnt a real person,so i played along with those who bashed everyone...i will admit that i did have fun doing it but as time went by and got to know some threw personal comments,i felt bad about it....any ways,im sorry for doing so
I know what you mean. Mocking someone might be fun at the time...but later on you have regrets...
