I saw another thread about bullying and got to thinking about some of the stupidest reasons y I was bullied back then.
Ones that I can remember is because I was shy and quiet. People really love to mess with the shy and quiet ones. And the other one is when I was in the 7th grade. I didnt shave my legs back then(mom wouldnt let me) and I was made fun of.
Arent they stupid reasons?? I mean, I dont care if a girl shaves or not. I dont get it. I still cant believe people made fun of me for that.
And frankly I think that some people just dont get along with other people. And some people are just rotten to the core. When I was in public school(around the 4th grade) I had some major problems with a girl in my class. She accused me of so many things, and got the other girls to hate me. It was horrible how it all ended. I guess it was so bad, I dont remember though(Im thinking I didnt want to remember. And frankly I dont want to remeber), but the girls got their guys to beat me up. In the end, my mother transfered me out of that school and I went to a private school for the rest of my schooling years.
I was bullied in public and private school, but I survived. And roll my eyes when I think about it now.
So bees, what were the stupid reasons why you were bullied?

I was bullied because I was smart and did well in school.
My brother was bullied because he was small for his age and didn’t like sports.

I was tall. Until college I was taller than all my male friends. So from about 4th-9th grade it was super awful. And between 3-8th grades I was not exactly skinny, so I was the awkwardly tall, chubby smart girl who none of the popular people liked. I got to HS and played varisty basketball which made the tall thing cool and working out 6 hours a day made me skinny. Being in AP classes made being smart not unusual either.
Of course it is funny now, all those people who were cruel to me in elementry and middle school, heck in high school, are total messes now. I am about to be happily married to an amazing man, getting a great college degree that will get me a great job and an incredible life. I laugh at them now.

My last name kind of sounds like a character from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was teased mercilessly for it. How stupid, right?

Tall and skinny. I was made fun of for a small chest as well. Girls would make fun of me saying I was really a boy. Harsh.
Still have a small chest, but I’m proud of it now. Still wince a little when anyone mentions my weight though!

In 4th grade there was this one boy who was continuously horrible to me. He called me fat and ugly, and would pin me again the desk, the wall, or anything, so I couldn’t move. I told the teacher and she told me to stop being a tattle-tale.
In 8th grade I had never had a boyfriend and one girl started calling me a lesbian, and soon all of her friends were doing it too. They kept it up all year. Seriously, I was 13 years old. How many boyfriends was I supposed to have by that point?
That boy has now been in and out of jail for years, and the girl got pregnant in high school and lives a pretty sad life right now. They both still live in the TINY town that I grew up in.

In fourth or fifth grade, I made a shirt that said “Cats rule and dogs drool” using a photo thing, printed it out on iron-on paper, and outlined it with fabric paint. Then I drew cats on the white sides of my shoes and wrote “I <3 cats.”
I got made fun of hardcore. 😡

Once, I was bullied for making Hemp jewelry. I remember it so vividly. He said to me ” HAHA, DO YOU SMOKE THAT STUFF” trying to make me feel bad. and I said something along the lines of, “no, you don’t smoke the stem of the plant, which is what hemp is made of, you smoke the leaves”. He shut up pretty quick, but still laughed with his friends about it? I still don’t know how that was funny or hurtful…
The other kinda stupid thing I was bullied for, was when this guy stole the lock for my locker, and I chased after him. When one of my friends stood in his way at the end of the hall and I was behind him, he had no where to go, so used all his weight and flung himself backward, at me, and landed on me. With my head in a stone wall.

Tiny boobs. I was once told by a guy that skinny girls like me with small breasts weren’t attractive to men. This, of course, happened when I was still a skinny minny.

Being skinny. Talking like “a white girl.” Being smart. Having long eyelashes. Having long hair. Being “sensitive.”
Obviously, all pluses now, but darn it sucked sometimes.
ETA: I forgot about the dang glasses! Yea, that too.

I was on the safety patrol in 5th grade and made it to co-captain with this other girl. We both got a shiny gold pin to wear or keep or whatever that said ‘captain’. I was very VERY proud of mine and wore it when we went on patrol…the other captain made fun of me everyday for it and called me “pin girl” and laughed. Seems silly but I will always remember that, it got me so riled up. I was proud of my accomplishment, that’s all…
