You don’t have to let yourself be bullied.
If you challenge Astigmatism all the other monsters will become sparable. Then all you have to do is fight and knock Astigmatism down to low health and then you can spare him.

It’s like with real bullies, instead of doing what they say, stand up to them in front of everyone, and kick their ass to show everyone that you are not going to be bullied.

Everyone should hear UFC fighter Holly Hom’s bullying advice 

Holly Holm, who recently beat the previously undefeated Ronda Rousey in a high-profile match, shared her advice on a recent HuffPost Live appearance for girls who are bullied for failing to fit a stereotypically passive, beauty-based model of femininity. She went on to explain how bullies defeat themselves.

“You hit my son, everyone in my life hates you. You emotionally abuse him enough to hit himself, I hope you hate you more than I ever could.”

This is Mikey. Mikey is a victim of abuse and the system. When Mikey’s mom ran from an attempted murder, Mikey was sent to live with his abuser because his mother is now disabled and had everything taken from her. Mikey’s abuser and father had more money. Mikey now is being watched by the abusers girlfriend’s mother and is bullied by the daughter of the woman his father cheated on his mother with.

Mikey is now bullied so much he began to injure himself. He is 5 years old.

On October 15, Mikey’s mom is going to court to get Mikey back.

If Mikey doesn’t come home she’s going to expose it and all of the unjust government officials to the media. Let’s all get behind her! Bring Mikey home!

Please REPOST and then repost again.

When someone bullies you, attacks you, manipulates you, makes you feel like shit etc. Don’t listen to the people that say, ‘You just need to ignore them’ or ‘you just need to [insert other bullshit advice]’. 

This implies that you just need to do something to make the person stop. That by doing what you’re doing now is wrong. That it is somehow your fault. 

It’s not your fault. 

The burden should not fall on you. You’re not the one who needs to change their behavior.

And tons of people around the world look at Tall women as Amazonian Beauties. 

Always remember this. A Big Person can Hurt a lil person, and if people are trying to bring you down because of your appearance than you are already above them. 

But that doesnt mean to become a Bully and to gloat.

Focus on yourself, and are you giving them a reaction cause most bullies look for a reaction of someone they are messing with to know they got to you. I know it sounds cliche but just ignore them. Focus on yourself. Hell go train and workout and get Korra toned

People start watchin themselves around you and if its other girls let them chatter on about BS. You stay focused on your goals and what you want to accomplish.

We’ve all been pissed off before. Some let it go, and others don’t. There’s nothing wrong with being angry. It’s all in how you deal with it. Anger can be a GREAT motivational tool while Rage can hold you back. Dont be a Rageaholic that can’t let go and stays angry for a long time. Use your anger let it help you focus and stay motivated

Remember Success is Best Revenge so start lifting, take a martial arts class and start studying. 

Build that Brain and that Brawn and you’ll go farther than they ever would. The trick is to not let your anger fester. You have to turn it into something positive.

Otherwise, you’ll never learn from your mistakes and be angry for the rest of your life. I hope you feel better and remember if you ever need a pick me up Thats what Im here for

"You’ve got a bully breed, which means you’ve got an animal who (no matter how sweet), has to some degree a genetic disposition for dog reactivity" I see this sometimes, but never any evidence. I'm not out to criticize, but between the two extremes of "bully breeds should not be trusted" and "they're the sweetest dogs and wouldn't hurt anything ever" it's hard to find non-biased info out there. From what I can tell they are like any other dog. Is there any empirical data on their disposition?

I’ve been sitting on this a while because it’s something I wanted to make sure I had the time to respond to it fully.

It’s pretty hard to find empirical studies on bully breeds in general, except in relation to dog-bite studies. Why? Because it’s hard to find the funding. Not a lot of people in the scientific world feel like the misconceptions about a single breed or group of dogs are worth disproving, except when it relates to human safety. Which means a lot of the studies out there are pretty biased.

In the dog and dog shelter world, bully breeds are anecdotally pretty well known for a couple qualities: low frustration tolerance, a tendency towards barrier/leash reactivity, potential for dog aggression, and a high prey drive. A lot of this comes from the fact that most of the breeds considered ‘bullys’ are either terriers (who are notorious for their intensity and prey drive) and working breeds (who have also been bred for pretty specific intensities and personalities, due to their use as guards for livestock or humans). Taking into account that a lot of mixed-breed bullies (especially ones that might end up in shelters) have somewhere in their genetic history breeding for ‘bad dogs’, ‘guard dogs’, or just ‘mean-looking fuckers’ by irresponsible people, you can sort of see where that comes from.

I did a little bit of searching, and found an interesting study (Turscan et al., 2011) of 94 breeds that looked at four quantified dog personality traits and grouped types of dogs that display similar ones into clusters.

To break it down: Traits studied were trainability, boldness, calmness and dog sociability. Trait rankings were acquired by scoring multiple individuals (10+) from each breed, and then averaging their scores for a ‘breed rating’. Here’s how the study described what a rank in each trait category meant:

“Dogs that scored low regarding the trainability trait are described by their owners as uninventive and not playful, whereas dogs that scored high on this trait are regarded as intelligent and playful. Boldness was related to fearful and aloof behaviour with a low score corresponding to a high degree of fearfulness/aloofness, and vice versa. The calmness trait describes the dogs’ behaviour in stressful/ambiguous situations. A low score on this trait indicated stressed and anxious behaviour in these situations, while a high score referred to calm and emotionally stable dogs, according to the owner. Finally, dog sociability refers to their behaviour toward conspecifics, with a low score indicating a high tendency for bullying or fighting and inversely high scores related to a low tendency.”

One of the interesting things about this study is that, because it was looking to see if there was any correlation between personality and genetic relatedness, they grouped the breeds of dogs into five general “clusters” of relatedness - and the terriers and mastiff/working dogs ended up in the same group. So there’s a great cluster of our ‘bully’ breeds right there (although obviously there were other breeds involved). That cluster was actually the second-highest populated in the study, with a little over 1000 dogs contributing data, so there’s a pretty good sample size. It turned out that the Mastiff/Terrier group showed a strong tendency to be bolder than most of the other clusters of dogs.

Then, they study categorized clusters of breeds based on the outcomes of their trait scoring. Here’s where the breeds that apply to our discussion fell into clusters based on traits:

High calm, medium trainable, high sociable, high bold: Bulldog, Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Low calm, high trainable, low sociable, low bold: American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer, Rottweiler

Low calm, low trainable, low sociable, medium bold: Bull Terrier,  Perro de Presa Canario

So our common traits among all these breeds are a tendency towards low calm, low sociability, and a range of boldness. That fits pretty well with the stereotypes of a dog that reacts easily, doesn’t do well with stress, isn’t necessary good with other dogs, and can run anywhere on the spectrum of being confidant or nervous.

When we talk about bullies being prone to developing dog reactivity, what we’re saying is if they’re exposed to stressful situations involving other dogs, they’re more likely to develop behavioral problems based on the experiences. Same with barrier reactivity. A dog that doesn’t do well with stress isn’t going to do well being separated from something that is causing an emotionally aroused state. Same with leashes - a dog who isn’t super bold or super sociable isn’t going to do well being restrained around other animals, who might either antagonize it or just push it’s space boundaries. 

So, basically, what this all says is that in bully breeds you’ve got a dog that is more prone to developing these behavior problems because to some degree the pump is already prime, genetically. Bullies often can be and frequently are amazing family dogs - they’re bred to be great with people, just not other dogs - but they require a high degree of early socialization and careful management to help prevent them from having negative experiences that might encourage the development of those behavioral issues. Is it necessarily going to happen? No. But they’re more likely to end up having dog reactivity issues, say, after getting attacked by another dog, than a golden retriever might. That’s something to work on especially with young dogs, since it’s always harder to break a habit or un-learn reactivity (which is often rooted in feeling unsafe or nervous) than it is to prevent the behaviors from ever occurring in the first place. With such intense dogs as bullies tend to be, that’s why managing social experiences with young dogs is so important - the more you make sure they only have positive experiences with other dogs, the more you set them up for a lifetime of success.

i found your blog through ask-an-mra-anything, and you seem really nice. is it okay if i get some advice? how do you cope? like, generally? i have nightmares about being targeted by the sort of edgelords you interact with on a frequent basis. how are you not terrified of them? or depressed by their very existence?

Umm, hmm. I don’t really know, I’ve been dealing with people like this for so long it’s pretty normal to me now. Well before Tumblr I was a WoW player and before that I was active all over nasty Internet cesspools like 4chan.

I’ve interacted with these kinds of people, but on a person to person level. I have seen who they really are and I have seen what they lack. At the end of the day no one is picking on someone for no reason, no one harasses and bullies people just because they felt like it. . It doesn’t excuse what they do, but it does demystify it a lot for me. 

I remember seeing a young troll discovered by his mother, she found out he had been threatening and bullying people online and she was mortified, because HE was bullied. He was so ashamed of himself when other people that he actually knew were able to judge him for his actions in real life. I keep that in mind.
