    Bullying should never be allowed in school. Yes, the boys do look great, but I guess I don’t get the gag… =-O

    I guess Brad still isn’t over getting caught bullying in front of a florist’s shop where he was going to pick flowers as his Mother’s Day gift.

    Not literally “looks”, but ordinary mischief doesn’t look so bad compared to the bullying behavior.

    I was bullied from 6th grade up til 9th grade.
    In 9th grade, one of my classmates said something, I snapped off a good retort, just before the teacher came in, so he couldn’t ‘deal out punishment’.
    That day, after school, he decided to pick a fight. I warned him not to … but after he knocked my glasses off, I gave him one so lid punch, gave him a black eye, bloodied nose (maybe fractured, can’t remember), busted lip, and chipped his tooth – or so said his g/f at the time – and all he did was rip my shirt and cost me a few dollars.

    After that … NO ONE bothered me. Of course, it was shortly after that, that I joined band, and started hanging out with the grade 11s and 12s … and they always had my back with the young brats in grade 9. LoL

    Every time I ended up at a new school someone would try me sooner or later. I was told not to back down. Funny thing about fights – even the “winner?” is a loser. If you “win”, great, but it usually isn’t so bad if you lose. Either way, bullies look for easier prey – because they are cowards at heart.

    Brad Luggsworth enjoys the physical contact with other boys for some reason. But he can’t really show any tenderness with any of that contact though. That is socially unacceptable and there is a stigma. People will make suppositions about him. So, his strong attractions that frighten him, have to be expressed through violence. Luggsworth will have to explore all of these things through quiet contemplation and study so that he can come to terms with it.

    Being a victum of BULLYING myself, I must agree. I don’t know about now, with all this modern technology in use both by the schools and the students, but things were very different in my time. Back then, school policy was gennerally to blame and punish the victum. My parents told me about having many heated meetings with the teachers about it. I remember one teacher even theatening to “slap [me] across the face every day until [I] stop[ed] it.” How she expected me to stop action commited by others was beyond my comprehension.

    Michael, Michael, Michael…you’re shorter than Brad. You’re in great position to take out his knees.
