I Hate Bullies

Don't even ask. Just know that this is one thing 'I hate', and yes, I know that 'hate' is a strong word. (Bullying is a form of abuse. It comprises repeated acts over time that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power with the more powerful individual or group abusing those who are less powerful. The power imbalance may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a target. Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse - emotional, verbal and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as psychological manipulation. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. Bullying in school and the workplace is also referred to as peer abuse. Bullying can occur in any context in which human beings interact with each other. This includes school, church, the workplace, home and neighborhoods. Bullying can exist between social groups, social classes and even between countries.) Bully Be Gone!
