It's Not That Easy by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen It's Not That Easy by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
I was also a target of bullies when I was young. They made fun of me, hurted my feelings. It was easy for them, I didn't protected myself. I just wanted to hide away from the world. I just wanted them to leave me alone. Not like I ever succsessed.
Those years deffenetly left a mark on me.

ah yes, bullies, 'thugs' in the making... I suppose I got lucky growing up, I had a couple of new bullies every year, but I made them afraid to pick on me... kindof a double edged sword too actually, make one generation of bullies afraid of you, and the next one will inevitably be more hardcore and looking to prove themselves... win lose too, I got left alone more of the time, but I also got left 'alone' most of the time, S'what happens when slam people into things for trying to hit you, or when you develop 'the look' that inspires people to be afraid of you, you know, the 'killer eye' thing.

Bullies ... I had bad experience with them before, when I was younger. Nowadays, I generally see them all as scumbags. Depending on my mood I might even put them on the same level as Nazis, sociopaths, and other kinds of evil bastards, a Hostis Humani Generis to be dealt with. 

Sure, they may have some sort of Freudian excuse for their behavior - either they are spoiled brats, or came from bad family backgrounds, but many people had experienced the same sort of thing and came out as BETTER PEOPLE. Becoming a bully, the way I see it, is ultimately a conscious choice to be evil and gets the kick out of the suffering and tormenting of others. 

I loved the Babs Seeds episode, it's deep in its message about bullying for a cartoon show for girls, and ultimately reminds the audience that bullies, for all intends and purpose, are still people. 

But these people are still, for all intends and purposes, bad, and unless they turn around and learn the error of their ways, and actually MAKES UP FOR ALL DAMAGES DONE, they need to be stopped, punished and MADE to do so.

I like the title a lot. I always told myself that I would ignore bullies if they tried to talk me down. But when I did, that resorted to physical abuse. And when I ignored that? Higher physical abuse. As someone with personal experience, I would say that you should stand up for yourself, but not to the point where you retaliate with violence. Luckily I don't have to deal with that one bully anymore, but it sucks to have nightmares about him. I tell myself I'm done with him, yet my subconscious tells me to deal with him again, simply because I wanted to, but I still don't want to.

And if someone here IS a bully, I just hope that one day, you come to your senses and find that there can be happiness in making someone smile rather than making someone a fool.

if i were bullied like they push me and i would have given him a good yell and say" i'll tell the principal or maybe lose my control and get a knife to kill you" you know threatan them but its just in my mind cause if that happened really and i did this the parents of the bully will act all innocent and say i was bully it just bothers me so i don't bother them they don't bother me but if i don't bother me and they bully me for no reason that's were its getting serious

I'm pretty sure a lot of people have been bullied, but apparently everyone thinks it gives them "bonus points" in life and always "brag" about it. :B

I've been bullied as well, and it's not very difficult for me to shake it off. I guess I'm not way too sensitive when other people do things. I get extremely bothered extremely easily if I do something the way I don't want to, but if someone else criticizes me, let them do it. Doesn't bother me. I just hate it when I can't do something right. That is what really gets to me. :XD:

Anyway, this episode confused me because I've never met anyone who was that way. Well, I have, but they weren't just straight-up mean. They were a little more violently natured than most other people I knew, but they weren't bullies themselves.

Hm... *thinks for a while* ... You got a good point. I guess it's our nature to go "Huahh, I got through it!"

I think Babs knows that the world is polarized, and she just chose the "stronger" side to avoid being bullied as soon as the problem surfaced.

:XD: Yeah, pretty much. Everyone loves a chance to show off. Even the humblest of humbles love the fact that they are humble. Sounds funny, but it's true. :laughing:

Oh, I see. That makes more sense. Though, I admit I wouldn't be nearly as forgiving if I were Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, or Scootaloo. :XD:

I too have been bullied ever since I know myself. I never fought back, i only wanted to be calm and that person you could trust until I snapped, since then they are too scared to even try and tease me once.

At least what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Historians say that even Jesus might have been bullied when he was a kid.

I think the message of the episode was that people's actions doesn't just come out of the clear blue sky. People are influenced by other people and their experiences. Some people grow up in conditions that make them evolve into bullies or victims, and who and what they're influenced by isn't always their fault.

Lemme get this straight, you're alright that Freddy kills children and teenagers for revenge on his parents who mistreated him, but it's not alright that Babs, who got bullied in her homeland, decided to take the opportunity to try to regain her self-esteem though bullying her cousin and her friends in Ponyville? Not that it's a good thing, but I think a lot of us can relate to Babs here.

And I'm glad things turned out well for her in the end...but still...it would've been interesting to see her get even more humiliated and her relationship with Applebloom forever scarred .:iconevilgrinplz:
