    When I was a kid I was bullied. Now I know that is hard to believe but it is true.

    Now let discuss were you the bully or victim?

    How has it affected you later in life?

    If you were the bully and met your victims today would you ask for forgiveness?

    If you were the victim of bullying would you forgive?

    Remember this is the clean debate zone, so remember the rules are different...

    I was taught early on to punch bullies square in the nose as hard as I could. Worked quite well.

    Were I to meet those bullies today, I would smile and say "There's nothing to forgive. After all, it was your blood."

    I was given permission by My dad to bully the bullies.

    Seriously. My dad hated it and would not tolerate it in his kids.

    I was required to step in whenever I witnessed it.

    As for your questions. I was never bullied, and I never bullied anyone. I kicked some ass occasionally, but usually, the school kids knew enough not to do that kind of shit around Me. That isn't bragging. After a while, the bullies get tired of stopping up bleeding noses and split lips.

    I liked Eastwood's statement.

    "Why don't you lay there and bleed a while."

    I was not a bully and I was never bullied. I just knocked the shit out of anyone who was unfortunate enough to cross my path.

    I want to know where all the teachers are in this... I didn't allow any bullying.

    Why I was bullied was because I was sickly. I swear if you saw me now many of you laugh and say I could have never been sickly but I spent most of my youth in a croup tent during the winter.

    Many from my past ask me to forgive them, and just tell them past is the past.

    With that written it still make me wonder why do so many feel the need to bully?

    My father once found out that a friend and I were being bullied at school by a small gang. I must have been ten or so. He told my friend and I to go back to school and beat the Hell out of the bullies or he'd beat it out of us.

    The principal and a janitor backed up by a couple of teachers broke the melee up, but I was never a victim again. I'm quite astute at identifying bullies, however, and today those are the same guys who troll people and bully them on the Internet, but don't have the courage to call people out due to fear. They're real tough guys when it's in their backyard and they have back - up. When someone can save their hide, they are THE MAN. One on one, outside the limelight and where nobody can save them, they are the same bullies that taunted kids in school.

    There were a few times when I was in elementary school, I think, that I was bullied.

    But by the time I was 12, I was taller than 6 feet, and by the time I was 16, I had a beard.

    I never got in a fight in high school. I went to a smart kid school, though.

    I hung out mostly with outcasts, though - the kids who would probably have been bullied, if it had been a different high school.

    There is a very big difference between when I was a kid and today we didn't have the web and social media where people could attack you and trash anonymously back then it wasn't that hard to find out who was talking shit about you and confront them not so today. Look at this board we only know each other by screen names which is why sometimes we say stuff here we would never say to the persons face.
