    While there have been a lot of posts from brave members disclosing that they were bullied in school, I don't recall anyone admitting that they did the bullying.

    In junior high in the seventies I was bullied by two guys who by high school became soft spoken and fashionably and snugly attired members of the school chorus. In fact, one of them became overly friendly at our ten year reunion (and no I didn't, I don't reward bad behavior) so I suspect some of you are out there and on here.

    Please share your stories.

    I counter-bullied if that counts. The people who usually fucked with others just to be dicks... I fucked with.

    I'm pretty non-violent but I managed to get two bullies against each other. I incited a locker room fight which ended with one forcing the other guys head into the lock mechanism protruding on the front of the lockers. Both chose to leave the school after that. After that, I never "bullied" again.


    Edit: I guess I did. When a group of wannabe ghetto kids circled a band geek/poet I threw one against the wall and told the others to run. Let go of his shirt and said I better not catch him again. From then on when I saw one of them... I didn't let them forget who was dominant.

    When I was in 3rd grade these 1st graders were playing soccer and I kicked their ball away D: Also I briefly teased a 9th grader when I was in 7th grade o_O But it all came back to me since I was severely bullied from 1st grade to 12th.

    I was not a bully but there were a few guys i hated in school, so yeah i bullied them. I don't know why i didnt like them so much but i was anything but nice to them. I wouldn't say i regret bullying them, i know its not a nice thing to have happen to you but it prob made them stronger people in the end so it i might have done them a favour.

    I definitely was not a bully, but it was brought to my attention that a lot of people felt that I walked around with an air of superiority and acted as though I thought I was better than other people.

    Kind of the definition of being a bully.

    Gurl me and you share a lot of similarities.

    Same here people always thought I was arrogant. And my friends always say I was intimidating cause I always looked like I was pissed and about to punch someone out, which was partially true lol. And also because I would call people out on their shit right there and then, didn't give two fucks who you were. icon_smile.gif

    I did it maybe once in 2nd grade. Ironically, the girls father was the one who literally picked up a bully and carried him off before he could beat me up any more. This guy confirmed to me two things. One was that I could never do that to anybody again and the other was that (I realized this later) I was attracted to muscular guys, since he flexed a very nice arm in my face to try and motivate me to be able to defend myself better.

    maybe i am a bit of a bastard for bullying but its been a long time i wouldnt do it now. I regret what i said to them (calling them faggot and stuff like that) cause im gay, i guess it was my way of dealing with my feelings and trying to hide them.

    I really only had one bully, for a few years in elementary school. Then he OD'd on prozac, alcohol and benzos in 6th grade and I died. I won.

    I was always taught never to start a fight, and I never did. But I was bullied well into 7th grade. Then in 8th grade, I figured out that starting a fight and finishing one were two different things. The bullying stopped immediately.

    I was bullied until junior year of high school. Being fat and a little socially awkward, I was called faggot, gay, fat, pig...pretty anything you can think of I was called it.

    There were some points in my life where I snapped back. In 6th grade, this kid originally started out as my friend and then started pinning everyone against me. So, i spread rumors that he was a drug dealer and while he was whispering nasty words to me in class, i stood up and kicked his chest and he fell out of his chair in pain. Yea...got in trouble for that one but I won in the end when everyone stopped talking to him.

    7th grade, i was waiting in line during lunch and some dick asked me if there was going to be food left after I was done. So, I choked the kid until he turned blue. There were bruises on his neck after that. He was too much of a pussy to report me.

    Then when I lost weight and started defending myself, people backed off.

    Biggest bully was my dad. He was physically/emotionally abusive, never let me play outside when I was a kid, and never let me trick or treat. When I was 12 (took karate at the time) I broke his arm when he was about to hit me and to this day if I can fuck with him I'll do it. He deserves to die alone. I am never going to allow him to be with another women because no one deserves what he put me and my mother through.

    So...my philosophy on life...if you are nice to me I'll be nice to you. If you harm me I'll get you back three fold, harm anyone i care about...watch out. Only time I will deal with disrespect is if its in a professional environment. I am no longer the fat pushover kid.

    i was not a bully not even close
    i've been bullied severly when i was a kid more than once i was in the 1st grade i believe, in my neighborhood all the guys there hated me bazzarly, they were way older you can say their 20s maybe
    one of them was the lead (of course there's always one) he took me & put me on top of a car & he was like scarin me and shit it was hurtful and to entertain them more he took off my pants and started making fun of my undies, had to deal with those guys everyday i was like the walking punch line and it kept on like perpetual re-runs.

    someone's gotta break the ice & that only person is you, luckily i broke mine and now i still see them on my way to the gym (they don't) and be like "talk to me now bitch"

    As for some people above who don't regret it, you're gay..take that as a reference you should know better

    I went to a very small school of around a 100 kids -- I believe my class had just 24 students. I was rock bottom as far as popularity went -- being bullied all the time during recess and in class. (surprisingly not for my being gay; more likely that I was brown and didn't act 'american'. My behavior in class was too good perhaps). I had a very low self-esteem and thought that 'cool' kids were actually privileged to bully 'uncool' ones, and I was just 'uncool'. And I really believed it. I wished so badly I was a cool kid too.

    Well, in 5th grade, a new kid showed up, and to my delight, he ended up taking my place as 'most uncool kid'. Even though hate still kept coming my way, he got a little more; and it was such a relief to be able to enjoy recess every now and then without being bullied.

    Anyway, there came a day that I would never forget. During recess, I saw that poor kid getting totally picked on by the other guys, and he was just there taking it (what else could he do?). Eventually, the bullies left the scene laughing. Still thinking that 'cool' kids were 'privileged' to bully I went up to him. As I approached I noticed a faint smile forming on his innocent face. I looked right into his eyes and committed the biggest sin of my life:

    I told him how ugly he was. And that his ugliness matched his mental retarded-ness.

    I saw, in his face, the instant his spirit was torn apart. He was really hurt---more so than when the other bullies made fun of him. Actually much more so.

    I found absolutely no gratification in what I had just done. I was totally appalled at what I had done; I was overcome with shame, and a deep sense of guilt.

    A few seconds later, he broke eye contact with me, looked down to the ground, and walked away. And I just stood there in shame. The rest of the day was horrible-- I couldn't pay attention in class after that. I just kept wondering to myself why I did what I did. I felt so guilty, that after recess, I avoided eye contact with him.

    When I got home, I threw myself on my bed. Eventually my thoughts had matured and I truly understood what I had done. I had backstabbed him.

    This is a memory that has been ingrained my brain. Even 16 years later I remember in great detail the events of that day, and how it all unfolded. It still makes me incredibly uncomfortable every time I recall it.

    I learned a life long lesson. And that was the first and the last time I would gratuitously offend someone like that.

    When I was around 10, my friend and I bullied this boy called Leon. We used to spit on him and push him around in the playground. It was fun at the time, but looking back, we were awful monsters. Sometimes, I'd used to bully another person in my class, but it was never anything prolonged. It was only a few ocassions when I was probably trying to showboat.

    From the ages of 10-12 was when I could have been seen as a partial bully, but ever since then, I moved on and started growing up.

    well when it came to physical comfortation it was primairally directed towards those who were picking on others but there were those who I teased or mocked which I thought was just in good fun but may have been more harsh than I reilized at the time in which I did it.

    Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
    But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
    And I don't wanna live that way
    Reading into every word you say
    You said that you could let it go
    And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

    Not fully. However I was accused of it in primary school a couple of times. The stated reason being: name calling/teasing. Which, for me, was just playful banter. It was how my family operated with each other, playful teasing was/is our way of fun endearment.

    I was super confident as a kid among my peers; some of the more meek kids must of felt like my candid humour was just a bit too much to handle....Aww, poor things =[

    I am a completely non-violent person, so I'm reluctant to admit this, but as Trevor said I've had an incident of counter-bullying.

    One idiot in high school thought I was trying to come on to his girlfriend (shows what he knows) and for weeks shoved me around, cornered me, threatened me, etc. I decided I'd had enough. I'm not proud of this but the next time he cornered me I stabbed him (slightly) in the thigh with a compass (the geometry kind not the boy scout kind). He never once said another word to me.

    I was bullied until my mom unleashed me to have full permission to defend myself. It ended soon after.....

    Meh, i got teased a bit... but thats just male banter... people still tease me in school.... Im like the token gay.. but for me its a sign of popularity.... nobody bullies or ever bullied me


    There was this one guy who molested me in high school... a class mate, but he was a closet gay and very frustrated.. though I have to say its no fun being molested, he apologised and I wasnt too perturbed after that.......
