I think alot of men and women in their childhood were bullied for being "sissy", different or just being their true self which wasn't popular. It is a horrible experience, which has lasting emotional scars to be beaten up, teased and ridiculed because of who you truly are, just for being different. It is a denial of your self worth. I was bullied because I was bad at sports and little effeminate, and I still carry alot of resentment and remorse that I didn't beat the living snot out of those fucking bullies. I think a lot of this is just swept under the rug and never talked about because it is on some level very shameful. I never told my mom or dad about it. That being said I turned that anger inwards and became disciplined, excelled in academics and was very hard on myself to improve both physically and mentally feeling that success would be the sweetest revenge. I am successful but I still carry those scars contrary to what I thought. All the bullies out there know who you are. I would like to hear why you do it or did it. For the bullied I'd like to say I empathize and would like to hear your story and any advice you have to kids who are bullied today and what you would have done differently.
