Stop being wimps and fight back.

Oh yes. Violence solves everything.

If someone attacks you, you actually have every right to defend yourself, just don't use excessive force.

Last year, a 16 yr old punched me in the back of the head on the bus. I would've responded with force, but I was 18 at the time and it would be viewed as assaulting a child. I know how screwed up the legal system is and how sympathetic the media is to 'victims'. So no, you don't always have that right.

If people try to bully me. I just ignore them. Walk away. Act like I didn't hear them. It will be hard at first but after a while it becomes second nature. happens all the time.

a child? a 16 year old?
shell we go to a random school and ask random 16 years old if they think they are a child or not?
a 16 year old aint no child anymore. they know very well what is and is not allowed. i say he deserved a smack in the face, (no punch ofcourse, only when he keeps going)

For legal purposes, they are. Sucks, but to change it, we'd need to lower the age of 'adult'.

often enough do 16 year old come befor a judge as a adult.
why not the other way? a 16 year old sure knows that hitting someone is a bad thing. people learn that around 7-10 year old. they might try again when they are 12-14 and puberty starts to kick in. but by age 16 they sure know the results and if they dont, they need to learn the lesson. and what better lesson then reality? a hit back.
there is nothing wrong whit hitting kids at the right time. and such time sounds like the right time to me.

You have no idea how screwed up our school systems are. You can get suspended/expelled for being a victim of a fight if you defended yourself.

Common sense ain't common 'round here. Remember what happened with the Trayvon Martin case, with the media showing pics from 5yrs ago as emotional appeals? Same thing would happen if I fought back. Who does a judge/jury side with? The aspiring, outgoing, smiling, innocent child? Or the introverted, muscular adult?

Well, to be fair, they also showed Zimmerman when he was fat, while at the time of the murder, he was muscular, and Martin was rail-thin.

To be fair, they also fuzzed up the vids showing Z's injuries, edited the 911 call to imply racism, and downplayed TM's delinquency.

I suppose I would've eventually been cleared of everything, as there were plenty of witnesses to the unprovoked assault.
