  • Don't know, why do you? I guess it makes other people feel better about themselves.

  • I don't know, but you, as a person who makes fun of domestic violence, probably gets off on bullying too - so you tell us!

  • I suppose it depends on what you consider bullying. If you are talking about the kind kids do on the playground, I am thinking that it might be a way to compensate for something else (be it bad grades, bigger than other kids - or smaller in some cases, not being well liked). I think for older people (teens, young adults and adults) it may have something to do with compensating or perhaps they are just angry and the only way they can feel better is to make someone else feel worse.


    I'm not sure. I never hung out with people that were bullies. I have been around enough to know that karma comes looking for those that deserve her and I would hate to get between Karma and the one she's looking for.

    I read something somewhere that bullying is not an esteem issue. I do certainly believe that those who bully probably are victims themselves and kind of use it as a release valve
