People always say if you stand up to bullies once they will leave you alone. How do they explain that I have not a once backed down when someone bullied me and I still have boys bullying me. How you explain that? -M&M

Because boys are awful and society pats them on the head when they bully, because it’s a traditional masculine ideal, showing dominance by being an utter c_nt to ladies.

The hair pulling, shoving, etc. it;s seen as cute. They get away with it.

—-

Bullies CAN be scared away by a show of ‘How about you go fuck yourself instead?’, because they’re generally cowards, Anon friend.

The problem is, some of them are so cocky, so stupid, so utterly fucking set in their role that they can’t see that what they’re doing is wrong, or inappropriate, or marking them as a genuine 100% authenticated arsehole (certificate of authenticity included if you call in the next 15 minutes!) for all eternity. 

The other kind of bully, the kind you seem to be facing… THRIVES off the reactions they get; my sibling is like that, he niggles and niggles and pisses you off until you have to respond -if only to throttle the bastard so you can think in peace. 

Standing up to this particular type of nasty feeds them.
Ignoring them completely won’t do it either… you have to hit them where it hurts, their ego… 

Raise an eyebrow when they start their nonsense, smirk like they’re an amusing series of small children being naughty… turn away and continue. Do not acknowledge them. Repeat.
They will try to get more attention, but if you respond like it’s beneath you, usually they lose their fire.

Or try, “And… what exactly are you trying to achieve by __________? No really… what is this all about?”

Most don’t have an answer…

"So… who are you again?" and "Yep, totally am, good for you, you figured it out you genius!" (in an incredibly cheerful tone, try to sound genuine, it confuses them).

-

Basically, you’re smarter, so use it… run intellectual circles around them and torment them psychologically by refusing to play into it. 

They’re peacocking (look at me! look at me!), banging on their chests like primal animals trying to get your attention, to lure you into confrontation and you have stood your ground all this time… which is good, never back down, never give in…

But switch tactics on them. Go for the psychological assassination in response, they want you to cry, to get upset, to yell and scream and bang your fists on your chest back… because that’s the game of dominance they understand. 

Just remember that, in the grand scheme of things… you are the star in the sky that they are seeking to drag down into the mud alongside them. Stars only fall if they want to… never let them convince you otherwise.

========

However, as it is pervasive and concerning, I would also advise you seek some sort of authority figure out. Guidance Counsellor, Teacher, Parent, an adult of authority who you know will be on your side…

What they are doing is not okay and you don’t have to put up with that, my little celestial being.

I will reblog this until my fingers bleed.

Oh please.  Check your sources, people.  A 30 second visit to snopes says that the ALS Association has record levels of transparency, that it has it’s most recent fiscal year up on its website, that Charity Navigator gives it a four out of four stars and 90.73/100 rating, and that this entire post is basically a big ol’ steaming crock of bullshit.  Ugh.

Well, maybe not that bit about “a check to a small organization in Texas”, which, woo, go you, I’ll never say no to money toward the homeless.  Assuming it’s true, which considering the rest of the post?  Take it with a grain of salt.  Or a truckload.
