I am a very passive person, but it's times like this where I want to just slowly and messily kill myself. I just don't see myself being able to successfully have a future in anything. Every time I want to do something, even to try it out, I get this huge, long lecture of "Sweetie, you would just fail miserably at that and everyone would be mad at you again! Just stop. Don't even try."

I may have my own hang ups preventing me from getting anywhere in life but I could never see telling someone else that my problems are reasons not to follow their dreams. What kind of fuck would tell you that you can't follow your dreams?

My dad, in some respects my mom and my siblings, and my former art professors. I always drew a lot as a kid, and I always preferred cartoons, so I figured I'd go into animation. My teachers always complained that my art was cartoony, and the anatomy looks off no matter how many real people and photographs I reference. I decided to change majors, and between my last one and my current one, my parents just seem really uninterested and disapproving of both. They don't really look at what I draw, and my siblings have flat-out told me I'm bad.

I was always pushing myself so into art and discouraged to try other things that I don't even know if I can do anything else.
>> No. 380732
there's a difference between the limits of the rational world and actually sitting someone down and saying "don't fucking try". Some of the best humanity has ever created came because someone tried something thought impossible. I may doubt and I may think there are other issues. But you don't sit anyone down and say "don't fucking try". It's a worthless suggestion.

No, re-read the first post, "anytime I even try something". And with the second post, even if the art is "bad", why doesn't the person just draw what they want? It's nice to make money off what you but to love it that means you have to love doing it. If everybody tells you what you're doing is shit repeatedly, and this is like the one thing you've ever wanted to do, why not do what you want? They can say something about what you do, but only so much. And they obviously don't care for it, so what the fuck would they know?

Doing other stuff is all well and good but usually it takes time and if you're not really into it anyway, it'll be abysmal for you. And the thing is, even if this person wants to do something else, all they're getting is "no you're a failure". Which is fucking horseshit, especially from your own goddamn family when you're trying to do something that might make you less of a "failure" in their eyes.

Can't go anywhere if all they're doing is beating you down anyways. Might be time to stop listening to the guards.

maybe it's the alcohol talking but for the first time i think i understand what it means to actually love oneself.

we're always looking for things to complete us... things to fill the gaps... to give us a sense of security... to affirm us in the hard times. we're already equipped to do that for ourselves. why does it have to come from outside? why struggle to make someone else fit a hole they were not meant to fill?

we are already complete if and when we choose to give compassion to ourselves. to listen and accept without judgment. to hold with kindness. to let our inner light glow brightly and love it for its own beauty.

Well I'm not sure if it's covered, besides I have precious data on it. Is there a way then, for me to extract the data, other than through my SD card? And by "data" I mean texts, and contacts.
>> No. 380779

Of course, this is dependent on the model of phone you have. Contacts can usually be stored to an SD card but texts not so much, as they live in the cloud with local copies on your phone. You can try one of the text and contact backup services listed in the above article, or go into the store and see if there's a data cable that they can transfer the info with.

If there isn't, replacing the screen on a cellphone is a delicate procedure that requires some technical know-how, and, more importantly, some knowledge of Korean so that you can order the part factory direct. Most times it's better to get the phone replaced and try and do the data back-up somehow if you're under warranty.

Stopped hanging out with a dude I was really close with a few years ago due to him being a human trainwreck.

Haven't seen him in person in like four years, haven't talked to him in a little less than that. Other than every few months with one or two word replies when he's bored or he messages me about some new girl he's fucked.

Just now he asked me on facebook asking if I have any interest in being friends with him any longer. He's not a bad person, so I don't want to be a cunt. Don't know what to tell him besides "Not if you're still a complete loser with no sense of propriety who has a streak of sticking his dick in crazy." But that sounds a mite harsh. :|

I think one of the reasons I hate you guys so much is that seeing people with really active social lives and tons of friends but no sense of basic social skills, interpersonal diplomacy, or basic human empathy. My social circle is some King's Landing shit where everyone hates each other secretly and has a deep dark past and I have to write up flow charts just to make sure that outings don't erupt into fights or tears or nobody gets raped and you guys are all "shit man this guy keeps IMing me about Minecraft and the girl I like doesn't like the Aquabats what do i do" and THIS GETS ME SO MAD OH MY GOD. Conversely, I'd like to thank all the people here who's live are legitimately self destructing right now. You really make me feel welcomed.

As of right now, I'm trying to figure out how to make more friends, and what it is that I'm doing to attract these people to begin with.

I act nice to someone, they come across a picture of me online, and suddenly they go from decent people with a few things in common with me to absolute leeches, and it's unnerving.

I'm on hiatus with the person I was dating, and I've told people as much as "I like someone right now, it's kind of hard to like anyone else". But they get super offended, take it personally, or assume I can't actually be with someone, or that it's a competition where they can somehow win me, and it really pisses me off.

No, it's entirely possible. It's just a few select guys who think being nice is a means to sex, and a relationship can't work if one party is being genuinely nice, and the other isn't.
>> No. 380843
I think it's plausible, but the connection has to be made through some mutual interest rather than just personality.

However, even if it's intended as a platonic friendship by both sides, the chances for hanky-panky will increase over time. And, if both sides have a significant other, there will be jealousy/worry that it's more than a friendship.

So, in the end, the whole thing might be more trouble than it's worth. But I have no friends of either sex, so I'm not an expert on these kind of things.
>> No. 380844
Horseshit. If you treat people like disposable commodities you won't have any friends, let alone female friends.
>> No. 380845
I think with me, it was a decision entirely on their side that because I was a girl, and because we had some things in common, that all girls must like guys, and that I'd at some point have sex with them, while I've had other friends who were guys, and the discussion to date never came up, or it came up and we both decided we didn't want to date each other. I prefer it to evolve naturally, to not expect anything at first, until it starts feeling that way on both sides. With me especially, I'm not a very sexual person period, so expecting me to put out easily or at all is asking too much, I'm sorry.

I mean, using the word "friendzone" in any kind of serious context implies that a woman's friendship is somehow a shitty consolation prize or that being only friends with a woman is undesirable. You get it? I am too tired to properly explain myself. It's a dumb word and I don't like it especially since in my younger years, I occasionally used it to refer to the guys who didn't want to fuck me, and I am deeply ashamed of my idiocy.
>> No. 380896
Uh no. Friendzone is a specific thing, its not all intersex friendships. Something like one partner loving the other but the other wanting to stay just friends and/or treating them like shit.

Girls can be and often are friendzoned too, probably more often than guys.

Well I don't want to fuck them all in dark caves.

Much as we love to say that we can hold completely platonic, non-feeling, sex-only relationships, the evidence seems to be that if you are fucking someone you will eventually probably come to care about them a little bit more than most people. It's not necessarily the same way you might accidentally say "I love you" to the pizza guy, as that might involve being balls deep in the pizza guy. However, because you are fucking them, you more than likely have some level of feelings for them, possibly beyond "god yes bend over and pick that shit up I could watch this all day".

Can we just get rid of the word "friendzone" and go back to "unrequited love"? "I have unrequited feelings for whoever" doesn't have the same nasty connotations of "she friendzoned me."

Unrequited love is just someone rejecting you. If they reject you AND continue using your feelings to exploit you, that's friendzoning.

Friendzone has an element of exploitation.

See, that's just him being a douche, it's not friendzoning.

I can accept friendzone as a thing, but only if the friendzoned made active attempts at wooing openly from the beginning. If they just acted friendly and the response was friendship, then it's unrequited love.

Advice-needing time.

Met this guy once irl, as a friend of a friend. We don't have much in common, but he heard me out a couple of times when things were going shitty, and later things smoothed out, he asked me out. I said no.

He doesn't contribute anything to a conversation. I knew him for six months and never actually found anything out about him, other than what he was going to school for and that he would compliment me a lot. Later on, when I did learn about him, it was him and I getting into a social argument, and he came off kinda racist/sexist. So I've been talking very very sparingly to him.

It got worse when I started dating a girl and he got all jealous, saying I'd never find anyone better than him, and repeatedly referring to my girlfriend as "He" and "Him", even when corrected.

I invited a mutual friend to go see a movie, and he's been trying to invite himself. I don't know how to politely tell him no, or whether I'm being reasonable, or what.

My father found a VHS of Der Lauf der Dinge from 1988. We tried to watch it but the tape was already too deteriorated. Only the green hadn't been washed out and it had some nightmare fuel audio distortions. Made me ponder just where we're going with our society. Entranced by the rapid onward march of science and technology, it seems when thinking about the future, we now think of ourselves in the future. About the next big step that's about to happen, so we can leave the past behind. That maybe we will reach the point of ordering holographic cheesecake on a spaceship within our lifetimes. We don't think of our legacy. What we leave as a society once we're gone. It's kinda ironic, really. The longer our life spans grow, the shorter the life spans of our accomplishments become.

I've actually had this happen a lot. I hate it. I know women are perennially scared of men, and that most advice concerning such situations simply tells women to cut off contact if they don't feel safe with the guy. But I wish I could have them fill out a review card or something, y'know? Even calling me a fedora wearing douchebag is better than just "you're fucked up and I don't like you so I'm never going to speak to you again". Or silence.

But too many guys will try and use that as a rope to get back in, I guess. Still, makes it feel like some girls don't have spines. Though I must admit that I'm in a similar situation with a gay guy. It's the damnedest thing because I don't really want to hurt him... but part of that means not telling him that I have precisely zero sexual interest in him. c'est la vie.

Eeyup. I know there are some women who are just rude, but most of the time, we cut contact for safety's sake. If he's a cool dude, the worst thing that happens is you hurt his feelings and you miss out on maybe making a friend. If he's NOT a cool dude, then you may have just avoided the Worst Case Scenario of getting stalked/murdered or even just plain old harassed for not wanting to continue with this guy. It's seriously fucked up, but there are some men out there who get REALLY VIOLENTLY ANGRY when a woman says "no" to them. It's like they say: men are afraid of meeting someone who lied about what they look like, women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Obviously that's a gross oversimplification, but...yeah. Properly reject a cool guy, nothing bad happens. Properly reject "not a cool guy," and you will almost certainly get harassed.

It doesn't mean that you specifically are a scary creep or that she's paranoid. It means that there are enough dudes out there who ARE scary creeps that it's just not worth the risk of saying "sorry no thanks" in case he turns out to be Stalker McMurderstab.

Literally every one of my female friends plus myself have had to deal with at least one guy who wouldn't take "I'm not interested anymore" for an answer. The more you tell them no the harder they try to win you over and it just gets creepier and creepier the longer it goes on. It's really common! I think the media might have something to do with why guys do this without noticing how creepy they're being because there are so many stories out there with the moral "if you're persistent and never give up she will eventually fall for you"! That's not how it works in real life at all and if those stories were told from the girl's perspective it wouldn't be a romantic comedy anymore, it'd be a cringe comedy and the guy would be the antagonist who fails to get in her pants by the end, but maybe learns how not to be an annoying sack of shit to women in the process.

I kind of feel bad for these dudes because I am so certain they're just doing it because they were told that's how they should act and don't really understand how to do it any other way. Also I can't really give them a score card or whatever about what they're doing wrong, because I just can't really say what they're doing wrong specifically, just that it skeeves me the hell out and I'd appreciate it if they left.

There's also the issue of women are caught in a catch-22. If they cut off a guy for safety reasons, they're rude, stereotyping, etc. whatever.

How the fuck do you tell your fiance all this? If it is herpes or some other incurable, but treatable, illness I have to tell him, it would be wrong of me not to and unfair to them. What if he leaves? I didn't really have a life before him, he's brought so much into my life that I can't lose him over a stupid argument and an awful 5-minute toothy bj. Thinking of offing myself if it all ends up for the worst, still deciding on either blowing my brains out or some 'quick and painless' suicide device I found while skimming wikipedia on methods of killing oneself.

No really what the fuck could it be? Is it herpes? Can I really get genital herpes from a blowjob when the person has no outward signs of illness? What else could it be? They don't hurt, they're already disappearing in fact. They don't itch or hurt or anything. The only thing that itches is my groin region, and that's because I shave my balls and all the hair is growing back.
>> No. 381193
I'm not familiar with STDs, but I think if it was herpes it would be a bit more scattered. (I'm sure you can find all kinds of images on or off wiki for examples.)

>> No. 381194
There's literally 4, or maybe 5 pin-pinpricked size bumps. From what I can tell most 'mild' first outbreaks are a kind of cluster fuck. But the waiting is kiling me. Herpes is a pretty versatile disease, it affects everyone differently. Some people get the 'oh fuck nigger what's wrong with your dick' google image treatment, others don't even know they have it until a prior partner tells them they hav it.
Sorry for any spelling mistakes, kind of drunk.
>> No. 381195
Are the bumps oozing any kind of puss?

Getting tested is good, as no one here will be able to accurately diagnose you. That said, most cases of genital herpes do not actually show many, if any, outward symptoms, or they will show the symptoms periodically. If you contracted it through Oral Contact, it appears that there are two kinds of herpes and the oral stuff really isn't that bad at all, but it can be passed on to the genitals. The primarily genital one is the one to watch out for, as that one can result in open, crusty pustules and an increased risk of HIV. It's not pleasant, but I think most people have Oral Herpes anyway, it just doesn't flare up all that often and when it does, it's just ugly and annoying, not gross and unsexy.

But again, I'm not a Doctor and I don't play one on TV. Definitely consult your physician, but it doesn't sound like you should be hyper worried here.

>> No. 381196

In my experience, people are generally the cause of most of their own problems. Those that make others' lives miserable often do so through an expression of their own inner diseases, real and imagined, whatever the may be.

Also, you say the bumps were right under the head of the penis? On the shaft itself or on the underside of the "cap"? If on the underside, those might simply be a natural occurrence due to changing the frequency of sexual activity totally harmless. Again, consult your physician. popping dick pimples. ow.
>> No. 381201
Dunno if you're still serious about offing yourself, but I recommend against it, as unhelpful or corny I may sound. Maybe it was your fuckup, but it's not the end. It's never ever the end.

Two of the bumps are on the underside of the 'cap', other two maybe a half an inch below the cap on the underside of the penis, not much distance away from it but technically not under the cap. Going to an STD clinic on the 15th, but still the waiting game is a killer. The thought occurred to me that it might be harmless, but I'm steeling myself for the worst.

Ever hear of Seppuku?

Remember, the beheading in the seppuku was done by a friend so you don't whine too much and dishonor yourself.

It's possible that something got crossed in your brain and you feel like the opposite of the sex that you were born. It also works because, you know, you can be born male or female.

That actually works against your point, though. Brain scan studies show that there are differences between male and females brains, and people who see themselves as the opposite sex tend to actual have brains with parts that resemble those typical in the opposite sex. Thus, gender is more than a social construct and is thus different from aspects of personal identity which are.

I don't believe in transracial, but I believe in maybe your lifestyle fitting that of another country better. Like maybe you didn't "fit in" in America, but you went to Ireland on a trip, and you made friends really quickly, and the landscape was just what you needed, compared to the city you grew up in.
>> No. 381229
Well of course, everyone has a different brain. If brains were all the same we wouldn't have different personalities. Do you scan every transgender persons brain before you treat them as such?

Many people have been adopted by parents of different races and have grown up more comfortable with people of their parents race. That doesn't make them freaks, it doesn't give you the right to make fun of them or belittle their life experiences.

And as I said no research has been done on it, people haven't scanned different races to come up with different structures. So it's kind of ignorant of you to have a kneejerk reaction to something that hasn't been proven or disproven yet.

Look if people can be different sexes and even different species (fursonas), I don't see why stormfronters are drawing the line at race.
Honestly the only difference is that transgender people are more socially accepted and have had research done on them, whereas transracial people haven't.

The thing about "race" is that it has been genetically examined. And the thing is, the parts of the genome governing your "race" are so infinitesimally small compared to your overall makeup that "race" as a concept, at least when it comes to genetics, has been made meaningless. There is no set of attributes that are directly linked to skin tone in a universal way. A white person is as genetically unique as a black person as is an asian person etc, etc, carrying the overwhelming amount of genetic material in common with your family, and not really anything or anyone else, regardless of how your skin color (.0001% of your genetic makeup) compares.

The thing about "race" is that perceptions of "race" are based entirely on skin color, which so superficial and so minimal in your overall makeup that it's effectively about other people hating or loving you for something that really shouldn't matter at all. The perception of being a certain skin color has been played up in the past, however, most notably by children of "mixed-race" parents. If you're interested in an at-length exploration of someone being "transracial", might I recommend The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, by James Weldon Johnson. It deals heavily with the idea of "passing", or black people of an acceptably light skin color being able to "pass" as white in the early 20th century.

But scientifically speaking, the definition of "race" actually refers to being able to sexually reproduce with a mate of similar qualities. To that end, outside of a few genetic aberrations, there is no "racial" difference between anyone of a different skin color. There's only one race we all belong to, the Human Race, and for 99.998% of us, we are sexually compatible with everyone else that is classified as human. Kind of like Dogs, what you're actually seeing is an amazing assortment of genetic diversity based around a kind of "template" genetic code.

This makes the whole idea of being "transracial" absurd. People "pass" as white, but usually so that they can enjoy the benefits of not being discriminated against on every level of society.

Reminds me of a screencap I saw recently of some guy talking about a date he went on with a girl where she told him that she was really glad that he was white and not a "sand-n*****". After a pleasant evening of food and dancing, they went to her place, had sex, he ejaculated inside of her, she passed out. Then he wrote a note to her explaining his mixed Middle-Eastern Heritage, how his first name was selected to seem "more American", and how she had just betrayed everything she (incorrectly) believed in, and never called her again. Mixed feelings about his treatment of women aside, the underlying point is that she liked him well enough to fuck him, when the indicator in her mind of whether or not she should like him was was based on a perception so shallow and fallacious that she deserved a bit of that mental anguish.

Tl;dr no matter how much rap music I listen to and no matter how fluently I speak "jive", I can never be transracial because I can never experience the kinds of discrimination that legitimately effect people of darker skin colors. And in fact the idea of "transracial" itself has literally no grounding in scientific literature (if you find any work indicating it does, check the date and the source because that shit was debunked in the 1930s).

See, this is why life is completely pointless, and as soon as I pay off my college debt (which my mom is a co-signer on, so she'll get hit if I ignore it) I'm going to become a wandering hobo. There's no point in anything else.

Hey, Ninja.
I volunteer for any future treatment experiments that involve scaring patients back into health. Also disposing of any bodies that may suddenly appear as a side effect of these "clinical studies".

Also, I just received confirmation that I got a volunteer gig in Dallas this weekend. Now I've haven't done a volunteer job in a while, so I'm getting "performance jitters" as it where.
It being at the food festival is actually coincidence.

Kinda wish I go to ConnectiCon in Connecticut. Coelasquid gonna be working there. Go see her if you can.

>stick shift truck because the engine on my nice old automatic decided to sprout a huge fucking hole in its' engine

this thing has turned a relatively relaxing commute into a game of "how badly will I die when this think fails to engage the right gear properly one the highway"

My uncle trying to upsale me on the thing when I said it was stressing me out "you can use it do go slower too, just shift down". What you mean like the brakes? Yeah great I've gone from 2 pedals where I have to do practically nothing to 3 pedals where every time I do anything slightly wrong with the third pedal the engine feels like it's going to shoot itself in the head.

You get way more control though.

Unfortunately I don't think you'll be doing much stunt driving so the use of that control will be negligible.

>> No. 381291
No. I haven't tried fighting back any way but verbally. I always ended up in the principal's office as a kid for telling bullies to back off, even when they tried to shove me down a flight of stairs or something. It kind of scared me off retaliating on anyone.
>> No. 381292
Why so afraid of getting into "trouble" though? Unless the trouble is in some way permanent (dismemberment/death) it's not really something that should paralyze you with fear. There are degrees of trouble, and even the absolute worst case scenario for defending yourself is not that bad, certainly not as bad as the strain of just taking abuse year after year.

>ended up in the principal's office
Is that the source of this fear of trouble? You know that's not really that bad, me and my principal knew each other on a first name basis, and spent a lot of time talking about life and other stuff. Like when I get sent there I'd bring my various problems to talk about, we shared books and movies, talked about her model building hobby and my sports, it was really quite nice. Most of the teachers were assholes and couldn't give anyone the time of day, but the principal was ok. You're making mountains out of molehills here.
>> No. 381293
No, I'm not. My principal told all of the staff I was insane and not to take any of my reports seriously. Kids would come up to me and threaten to kill or rape me, and there was no one I could go to for help. Even my parents bailed on me eventually. I can't go to them for advice anymore because they don't believe me.
>> No. 381294

Any chance there's a counselor in your school who might be more empathetic to your plight? Of course, most of the ones I met aren't of especially high intellect, so if the teachers have bought into your Principal's message, the counselor probably has, as well.

Your best bet is wearing a wire so you can record these threats. Be very careful doing so, though, because it sounds like anyone catching you with it will cause you even more problems.

Make sure to get more than a few of them so they can't dismiss them as "isolated incidents." Getting the money for this might be hard, so I hope you have some sort of part-time job, because if your parents don't believe you (and tell them I said they're fucking horrible parents) they won't help in this matter. Once recorded, keep the originals somewhere and only bring copies to various people (including your parents) as proof. If they still refuse to do anything, you'll have to go to extremes: report them to the police. I don't know the ages, but this falls under Assault, so the police should do something about it. You'll become a pariah at school (but it sounds like you're one already), and if the antagonists only get a slap on the wrist you face physical attacks from them, so be ready for that.

Speaking of attacks, I recommend taking up some martial art. If you can't afford actual classes, look online for demos and practice by yourself. Work out. Improve your diet. Be ready for a fight, because from the sound of it that's going to be the final thing that will stop all of this. Becoming more physically imposing will also cause many bullies to back down if they begin to think you'll actually retaliate (most of them only go after kids they know won't hurt them, giving them all the power,) so start now before you do anything else.

Seriously, get out of your seat right now and do five push-ups. Do not stand back up until you've done five. GO.

Now, if the police don't take your complaint seriously (and--especially if this is a small town, the antagonists are on the football team, or both--this is likely), talk to the ACLU. I don't know how much they can actually help themselves for this case, but it's a starting point. There are various anti-Bullying programs out there you can contact, too. (Again, having recordings would be incredibly helpful in all of this, but you can contact them now to get some direction otherwise.)

In the most extreme case, if you're 16 or older in many states you can get yourself declared legally independent. If all your parents doing are just ignoring your reports of bullying it won't be easy, as this is usually reserved for separating a teen from their deadbeat/abusive/addict parent(s). Even if you can, it means you're going to be living on your own and supporting yourself, which won't be the easiest thing from the timidness you talked about earlier.

Do you have any adult, teacher or otherwise, that believes/supports you? Unless they are a pariah themselves, your best bet is to use them as a confidant, especially if you can't get recordings of the verbal abuse. After school, make a list of anyone that assaulted you and what they said, and have your confidant sign and date it to state that you didn't make this stuff up after the fact. Once you have a month of these built up, you and your confidant will have something to present to a person of authority (perhaps the Superintendent, since it sounds like your Principle is also stupid.)

This sentence is bugging me. Bullying is normally about group acceptance, seeing if you have a sense of humor, if you can dish out some pain if somebody fucks with you. Like FreeGlass said, normally folks back down if they have one encounter where they find out you aren't afraid to defend yourself, and they figure you're more trouble than you're worth or, in some cases, you display the exact kind of chutzpah they were secretly hoping you had.

Principals do not normally tell the rest of the staff not to believe you unless you truly fuck with their shit beforehand. Rape threats and death threats are some systematic hate-mob bullshit, not "I don't like your face".

There's an aspect of this you aren't divulging to us. Which is fine, all things told, but I do not think Timidity will serve you well whatever your struggle is. In any case, most of what Autonymoose posted is good advice. Dunno if I'd go tape-recorder just yet, a teacher as a confident might be a better bet. Unless it's a wholly hostile situation, in which case yes, tape recording and going to the proper authorities (or the ACLU) would be a bold, if not somewhat difficult to pull off move.
>> No. 381314
The only thing I didn't tell you was that the principal asked them if they had harassed me and they said no, and that's why she called me a liar. My friends brought cameras to school and recorded the faces and names of the people who bullied me, and of them actually harassing me, the principal never looked at them, as far as I know. And the fact that I begged them to leave me alone, the fact that I was in tears over it, it only made them bully me more.

There was also the fact that once or twice they were football players. If they'd been suspended, the team couldn't play. Nevermind that our school football team had always been terrible, and didn't win anyways.

so i was allowed to take a +1 to thie information session about the job with the rail company so i took my girlfriend

about halfway through she went to the bathroom then just after she left two of the bitches from the company also left. when she got back she basicly dragged me out before the session ended

why? she oveheard what the company bitches were saying on the back from the bathroom and it basicly went:

>they think they're going to get a job out of this
>why do we have to hold five of these fucking sessions when we're just going to promote our current employees

so even with being 10 minutes late to the session and leaving early i have as much chance of getting the job as anyone who got there on time: ABSOLUTELY FUCKING ZERO

this is exactly what i assume happened when i applied for the permanant job at my warehouse. they know exactly who they're going to hire but they have to go through the motions to make it look fair

i am so fucking pissed off right now

pic related, its the current status of my hopes and dreams

Yeah I'm thinking anon is lying.
>> No. 381324

What is all this bullshit? It's like you don't understand bullies at all. They do it because they're looking for a reaction. When anon goes to the teachers, fights back, complains, resists... and still fails, they win! The only reason bullies focus on one particular person is when they can keep getting the same reaction out of them. It's no fun beating up on a guy who just lies there and takes it; that's boring. It's only fun when they yell and kick and scream and beg the useless faculty for help.

And fighting back? You really must be an idiot. Like the sand people, they will just come back and in greater numbers. Worst case scenario, anon would end up beaten to death.

I've known plenty of people who got bullied in school (I was very frequently a target, especially in middle school when I still fought back), and everyone I've talked too agrees that the ONLY way is to ignore them. Eventually they will get bored and move onto another victim.

There comes a point in everyone's life when they have to realize that there are some battles that just cannot be won. That building a sandcastle right next to the ocean and being surprised when the tide comes and washes it away is moronic; cursing and trying to punch the ocean into submission is even worse. Perhaps that point will come when they fight back against a bully and end up getting suspended instead of the other guy; perhaps it will come when they try and be a whistleblower against a corrupt boss and end up getting fired; perhaps it will come in a struggle to unseat a foolish politician that gets re-elected anyway; perhaps it will come at any other stage of life, but it's best to be learned as early as possible.

I know it goes against the manly attitude of never backing down and never bending over and letting the world metaphorically fuck you in the ass, but it's a waste of your life. No matter how big a fish you think you are, there are always bigger fish than you. There will always be evil persons and groups and organizations that are more powerful than you, and yes it's JUST NOT FAIR; but the world isn't fair, and you're a naive idiot for thinking it is, for thinking that you all by your lonesome can make it fair if you just try harder. It's important to recognize your limits and pick your battles instead of fighting against the sea.

Most people recognize that trying to fist-fight with a grizzly bear is a really stupid idea. This is the same. Sometimes, the best course of action is just to play dead. They'll go away and leave you alone; I can almost guarantee it.
>> No. 381325
Why the hell would I have any reason to lie about this? Honestly. This is exactly what happened. Yeah, it makes no sense, but neither did bullies threatening to kill me when I interacted with them exactly zero times beforehand. Abusers period don't follow anything remotely resembling logic.

I should add that this principal got fired the year after I graduated. It can't have just been me that this happened to.

I'm thinking these days the best way to deal with these cases would be going straight to the cops (unless you leave in one of those shitty backwater places where the cops are completely fucking lazy and let "kids decide between themselves"). Bullying seems to be taken more seriously nowadays, with anti-bullying laws and stuff (I don't even live in the u.s., but my country seems to be going the same way).

I had both trouble with bullies and was a douche to people who didn't deserve back in school (yeah I can't be sorry enough), and I can 100% bullshit on beign all about "getting a certain reaction". No, it's just plain douchery.

Specially considering how far bullying can go nowadays - I've seen news recently of rape on kids under ten in one occasion, twelve on other - "playing dead" doesn't sound like will help much either. Going to the cops might give you some shit, but if no one else takes you seriously and the bullying won't stop anyway, might as well try to prevent it from getting too worse and prosecuting some bastards in the process I guess.
