bullying : Gay & Black Glossary
- Violence, usually by gangs of children against individual children whose sole
purpose is the joy of making others miserable. It can sometime involve theft or
vandalism, but this is primarily just to hurt the victim. There is all manner of
well-meaning but ineffective advice on how to deal with bullies. I was beaten up, spat
on, set on fire, had my school books damaged, jeered at every day of my life from grade
2 through 8. The only effective counter measure I discovered was to get my tormentors
alone and seriously injure them in a surprise attack.
