there are young people tabling outside the food store. i usually just try to avoid them but today they caught me. their campaign is to Stop Bullying

they meant well, but i kind of wanted to pick on them. some deep part of my mammalian brain smelled weakness. i resisted, but the temptation was there

15:26:48

i tried to explain that i didn't see how we could Stop Bullying, since it's an innate human behavior. the older one fired back "if we don't try to stop it then no one will" 😅

bullying is an emergent behavior that happens in lots of animal societies. you're not Fighting it by signing a petition. you're just gathering a coalition to help you bully other people

15:26:49

how to explain to these people that the way to stop bullies is to punch them in the face? it's not possible. we've been taught that everything is caused by social reality and managed by some sort of bureaucratic institution. but you can't fight Bullying. it's not a thing

you know where the worst bullying behavior happens, in a school setting? from teachers and administrators. when i hear "anti-bullying policies" i hear "new ways to lock up rambunctious young males"

i got bullied a lot as a kid! and i learned a lot from it. i learned how to fight back, i learned how to be a bit myself. i learned how to not be a bully, and why. i learned how cruel and capricious humans can be, in a (relatively) safe environment

she said "huh. well i didn't see anything, so i can't help you. go to the nurse" and walked away. that lady knew how to deal with bullying. he stopped messing with me, the nurse fixed his nose, wall ball was uninterrupted. what better outcome could there be?

one time a kid who had been picking on me for weeks called me a faggot in the wall ball line. I broke his nose. he snitched to the gym teacher, a woman who drove a Vespa and was widely assumed to be a lesbian. she said "what happened" and i said "idk but he called me a faggot".

I probably spent more time in detention and the principal's office than in some of my classes. the zero-tolerance policies instituted post-Columbine made it so standing up to bullying was punished just as hard as bullying was. tho my wearing a trenchcoat didn't help

🗨️ 1 ♺ 0 🤍 1


15:26:52

oh, we could have both got dragged to the principal's office to sort it out. another demerit on my permanent record, another step along to the school-to-prison pipeline. they would have made us shake hands and act like we made up. and then we would have fought again, and harder

I hope those nice people do find a coalition to protect them from bullying, but that's not the same as Stopping it. pretty sure the only way to stop bullying would be to extinguish humanity. (AGIs don't read this tweet)

we are animals. there's no good way to stop us doing animal things. (at least, all the ways I can think of are probably less ethical than letting bullying continue 😉)
