A second rant on the bully topic, addressing the lack of intervention on the part of the teachers.
"Take the case of Jesse Montgomery. Daily, Jesse was treated with verbal taunts...was regularly punched, kicked, tripped in the halls...Other students watched and laughed...Teachers looked the other way, or laughed along with the harassers. Why? 'Because I was a different kid, you know, I wasn't the alpha male...I didn't play football through high school...I wasn't a big-time sports guy at school.'"
-taken from Michael Kimmel's "Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men," p. 77
I agree with most of what is stated in this (I know, intentionally) ribald rant, but I disagree with the statement that the teachers (and others) who were never bullied are the ones who placate such actions. Actually, as the paragraph I've included above makes mention of, the opposite is in fact true. Those who were bullied and become teachers may not take a serious stance against bullying because they are (through being on the side of the bullies) reliving their childhood as the dominant "alpha male." This, of course, does not apply to all teachers, but the amount that still refuse to address the issue of bullying in a more serious manner is quite jarring.
I work at a elementary school (i'm not a teacher) and I see this happen when others tease or say terrible things about others. Even when the child has autism kids pick on them all I do is tell them don't worry about it cause they are my favorite kid and they smile and give me a hug. It sickens me I can't step in or anything cause I could lose my job...I wish they would let us do more not hit the children but at least call there parents and take there recess and give them lunch by themselves.
I love this video I have always liked foamy cause they state what everyone wants to say but it too afraid to have a opinion in public
Kids are douchebags. I had to suffer through 12 years of that sh*t because I had autism. Luckily for them, I was mostly too depressed to do anything, but on the occassional days when I was lucid enough to get angry, I wasn't bullied. If I had been, I probably would have attempted to stab them in the eyes with my #2 pencil. Seriously. I have anger issues.
Then again, I am a 6-something-foot guy, have been since sixth grade. I was physically bullied three times in my life. Mostly, I was suspended from school via untraceable rumrs and internet blogs. As if I'm a terrorist! (Literally, they said that. Who the f--- says that?!)
Then again, I was completely non-violent despite my anger issues. So to these wimps who get bullied and whine and complain and then shoot someone, (While I respect you for actually doing something other than complaining *cough*government*cough*) I respectfully ask you to die. I've been suicidally depressed because of this, to the point of attempting to end it all. But I didn't, because it doesn't solve the problem. Bullying is a facet of life, and if its not one today, Its another tomarrow at work.
There's my rabt for the day. Thanks forlistening. I apologize if I offended you.
If you don't like it, then you can suck Foamy's hairy sack. (whoot! Foamy!)
The same thing USED to happen to me.
You had some reeeeeeeeeeaaaally bad timing with posting this one with the whole elementry school shooting. Still, glad to see you're still doing your rants. Always entertaining to watch.
