Question Names you got called - December 17th 2013, 11:33 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of peer pressure or bullying, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

This is for a paper I have to write for finals in school. It's about bullying, the affects of it and why people do it and what we can do to stop it. My question is, "What names did you get called in school?" like "emo razor freak" and things like that. You do not have to post anything, but it would be very helpful if you did.

It's fortunate that I don't get bullied anymore.
Useless.Stupid.Slut.Emo.Gay.Try-hard.Bitch.Freak.Retard.Graham cracker. I used to get made fun of for being a late bloomer, too. And imitated. It was horrible.
And a lot more.

I just want to let you all know that you're all so strong and wonderful. You aren't what people call you, you're so much more than how people treat you. <3

A lot if people get called a lot of the same things.
Most bully's do what they do to get Rise out of the person.
I was called a lot of things, cow, ugly, fat, squeak, a lot of people made fun of the way I talked, and what I did.
There are a lot more, but there not normally ones people who name call, and I guess it does have a story behind it of why they called me it. I'd rather just keep that one to myself.

Good luck with your paper!

I have a pixie haircut, and I LOVE having it short.

Unfortunately, I've been called lesbian for it.

I've also been called an anorexic freak, and a backstabbing bitch.

Thank goodness I'm not bullied much these days anymore.

I love you to the moon and back.

I was too busy earning high grades in school to hear what some "popular" kid had to say about me. I don't remember being called anything through elementary and middle school.

When I was at my old school, I was called so many different things. Slut, whore, freak, attention whore, emo bitch, ugly, fat, worthless, pathetic, insane, a mistake, bitch, anorexic, bulimic, stupid, and that's all I can think of right now, although there are so many more.

Attention-whore once by a friend.
Flat-chested by another friend.
Bitch too.
Pizza-face because of my acne. Crater-face too.
Fake because I put on a lot of make-up trying to cover up my acne scars.
One time, I was interning at a camp and one of the children (about 5-6 years old) asked, literally, what was wrong with my face and why didn't the other intern have what I had (acne). That really hurt. I know that he was a child, at that he didn't know better, but still. There are stages in everyone's life, especially if you're bullied, where you're vulnerable to everything. Even a remark made by a little kid hurts.

A lot of mine were generic insults which have come up here a lot like ugly, bitch, stupid, whore, slut, loser, nerd, geek, smart arse, teachers pet, brown nose, suck up, fat etc.
The main thing I remember were the ones about my nose like big nose, Concorde, Pinocchio, being told my nose sunk the titanic, people shouting as I walked past that my nose took their eye out etc.

All the verbal stuff like this was in school and then the same stuff continued via the internet and texts at home so that took it's toll.

The physical stuff was worse even if it didn't physically hurt, just being tripped and shoved in the hallways and having stuff thrown at me, chewing gum left on my chair or put in my hair. Having my skirt kicked up or pulled down happened so often I wore my PE shorts under it everyday.

Mainly fat, I've had comments made too that weren't really names. Probably pathetic, four eyes, but they were kind of petty tbf.

Freak, Weirdo, Emo, Goth, Ugly, Fat
And 'Gypsy Pokemon Master' basicly someone overheard me talking to my friend about how I lived with a few different people while my mum was in hospital and as it was some huge deal that a 12 year old girl liked pokemon I got that name.
I still get pokemon comments -.- *sigh* yes I'm nearly 15 and like pokemon


I wanna be alive well don't you? There's no use in feeling low.

I got called fat after getting into a one sided argument with a guy from school. And various other people have also called me fat.

But other than that people don't have the guts to call me names.

Whitey (I'm half white and went to a racist school), cracker (again with the racism, emo (although it's a subculture that I am part of and do not take offense, but they say it like they're disgusted), goth (same with emo), fatty, gay, wimp, baby, ugly, nerd, terrorist (I'm half Turkish and I really like explosions), cutter, annoying, morbid, stupid, gross, etc. I was bullied a lot, mostly in second grade. Now it's just ignoring me and making comments and giving me disgusted looks.

fat, ugly, emo, wannabe emo, retarded peacock (because of how my hair was teased), weird, freak, stupid, retard, gross, disgusting, smelly, pussy, wimp, pathetic, weak, big, whale, pig, cow, any other big animal, attention whore/seeker, slow (athletically speaking), loser, worthless, fag(got), gay, lesbian, bitch, ass(hole), bully, selfish, snob, etc. or a combination of the above. Just some off the top of my head. There were of course other remarks such as 'You're teeth are yellow' and 'She has no muscle, it's just fat' and stuff like that, and although a lot of the bullying has slowed down since kindergarten and primary school, people still stare at me and whisper and laugh and exclude me. I don't know what I ever did to them But ok.
