*bully pushes you*
*you push bully back*
bully: wtf you piece of shit, that’s reverse bullying
everyone around you: yeah you cant fight hate with hate why can’t we all just be nice to each other
u know this literally happens right
kids get suspended for being bullied because they fought back or were considered a distraction to the bully it’s not just a metaphor it’s literally reality
When I was in first grade this kid in my school, who was just deeply disturbed, tried to strangle me with a jumprope in he middle of our playground. I was utterly panicked, of course, and tried to fight my way out any way I could, so I suppose I must have hit him on the shoulder or something. I had to go to detention, he didn’t get punished at all.
