I see alot of posts asking why me? Or Why bully at all? There is a simple explanation to both of these questions you may not like it but its obvious and undeniable. People are animalistic in nature. After all we are animals so what excludes us from exhibiting behaviors much like close relatives in the animal kingdom? What im trying to say is that bullying is the psychological equivalent of natural selection evolved from more primitive practices. Are brains are hardwired to follow millions of years of evolutionary natural selection laws based on body type, attractiveness(What is viewed as fertile), and intelligence. Bullying from males towards males is done by every species on the planet, males fight eachother to prove who is dominant. The dominant male usually leads the society or mates with the females, its natural selections way of making sure a species best genes are passed on. In Human society it has become moe complicated and become somewhat of a psychological battle since brutallity and fighting are mostly frowned upon in our society. The Same can be said about female to female bullying. Bullying from Male to Female is based on the same natural selection laws and seems to be a secondary method to make sure natural selection laws are followed. Females who dont meet a societys norms or standards are ridiculed or to make sure that the traits that are admired pass on through out futre generations of the society. I would keep going through all the different combinatons of why this sex bullies that sex but it seems fairly obvious that its all for the same basic reasons just in different variations and the process is gone about differently depending upon the genders of the individuals involved. So simple answer to how to stop being bullied can best be provided by the film "Donnie Darko" If your being picked on about your weight, Lose weight. If your picked on for the way you act, observe the way others act and maybe put some of it into practice. If your picked on for your clothes buy new clothes. I know it sounds shallow to conform to society but it works.
