I’m sick of the bullying debate, it’s ridiculous.

I was bullied as a kid, but you know what I got over it. I learned you had to take it in stride (since God forbid you give them what they deserve).

Bullying isn’t going to ever go away, despite all the grandstanding about how we need to “End Bullying Now”.

We were probably better off when corporal punishment was allowed and bullying got checked before going to the extremes we see today.

A good slap upside the head prevented parents from stabbing kids, or horrifically abusing kids to the point of suicide.

I ended up becoming friendly with two of the kids bullying me. The others turned into decent human beings by the end of high school.

Of course the school should intervene when there is serious bullying going on, and not let the inmates run the show as they often used to, but there is no need to have records following the bully up the grades.
