New Discovery - August 29th 2010, 07:34 AM

About the last post i made here before i left for... well ages, was about something Wowyousaidsomethingsmart posted.

Anyway, I was mucking about with a bully (thats just my way of saying he sat next to me and i desided to use the situation to try a few new tactics)
I just used my usual tactics at first (eye contact, stern voice, overconfidence blah blah) but then when another bully joined the frey. (haha 2 on 1 that was fun) They started using a whole ton of embarressing questions. and my usual tactics stopped working. So i switched to what Wowyousaidsomethingsmart said. Only it was a slight varient.

I returned fire and started pummeling my main target with my own questions
Me:"why are you bullying me?"
Bully 1: "how is that bullying?"
me: "your intentionally trying to harress me by asking embarressing questions"
Bully 1: "Do you masturbate?"
Me: "why don't you answer the question?" *In a stern voice*
Bully 2: *leaves*
Bully 1: *starts talking to the person beside him*

HAHAHA It worked brilliantly. to sum up
New Discovery: keep pressuring bullies with question about why they bully and combine that with eye contact and stern voice.

One try was all it took to find OuT they ABSOLUTLY HATE being questioned about why they bully. HAHA It was hillarious!... (in my head lol)

So thanks Wowyousaidsomethingsmart for that useful piece of advice.

RainbowSkies, Its not really "finally" I've been standing up to bullies, for quite some time, I'm just experimenting to see what stratagies work.
As for Alrex, not sure i really care about what girls think. But its funny how you put it. Bullying and beating bullying is so much like mating animals its scary.
I mean keeping your back straight helps alot, probably something to do with making yourself look big.

I always find it funny how bullies seem to throw themselves at each other, pushing their stomachs OuT. Thats exactly what some mating animals do. Haha, Who would of thought, bullying relates so much to animal psychology.

Glad to know it worked for you. If they start up with it again on other embarassing questions or other bullying tactics, you have firing power now that you know works. You did it perfectly: stern voice, eye contact and without shouting or violence. Sometimes it can be done without eye contact but you need to be confident and show that you're answering them without eye contact because you're the alpha. When they further challenge, then you look at them straight in the eye, stern voice and answer.

Or, once you made them uncomfortable and alpha their ass out as you did but if they continue, then do what was in your head: laugh. Makes them more uncomfortable and further shows that the alpha (you) is laughing because what they're doing is bouncing off you and pathetic.

But it's good to know it worked for you, keep up the confidence and verbally fighting back.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.
