8/21/17 Open Thread: Handling Bullies

Per the suggestion of one of our readers (thanks Murdoc34), we are going to start posting an Open Thread series for you to discuss various topics related to masculinity, marriage, raising children, and self-improvement.  The general format for these open threads will be we post a link to an article/video/etc and get your input on said topic.  If the participation goes well, we will expand this out to a few times per week.  So without further ado, we are going to cover the topic of teaching your children how to handle bullies.  I submit to you, dear readers, my take on this topic via an old article of mine from my original site, The Gentlemen’s Club.

How to Handle Bullies

Discuss!

Author: Jak

Jak, married and father of three, seeks to help the Red-Pill Community take its next step past the petty cynicism and ineffectual anger. While he recognizes that men are significantly handicapped by the modern legal system and culture, he doesn’t accept that traditional marriage is untenable in today’s social climate.

Rather, men must be willing to adapt to this new world by implementing new tactics and approaches to maintaining a balance of power. Jak is here to provide you with these lessons.

    Well… can’t comment on the kids thing since I don’t have any.

    However, for myself, I can give out the advice I got from my own dad while dealing with bullies in school: fight back twice as hard. And it worked! Sure I got some silly detention but what’s more is I didn’t have to deal with the problem ever again.

    Oh, and a little funny anecdote. So the principal was real annoyed that I finished a fight somebody else started. I got to be there when she called my parents. Initially she was all smug (proof she shouldn’t have been in education to start with) and then it was like the color drained from her face when she realized my parents were backing me up.

    Sometimes it’s the little things in life… 🙂

    • I’ve heard of so many kids who have been bullied at school through my church and friends and two questions always come to mind:
      1) Have you taught your kids how to properly handle a bully? Running to the teachers every time doesn’t work.
      2) Do your kids know that if they get in a fight with a bully, that you’re going to back them up 100%?
      If the answer to these 2 questions are no, then your kid is going to continue to be bullied.

      Real truth there. I remember in school this kid twice my size was giving me shit and one day I just hauled off and punched him as hard as I could. Guy never fucked with me again and we actually became friends after that.

    • Ainigmaris Thales

      I think you get arrested in school for fighting back against bullies now.

      • TheLastConservative

        I’m not in the US now. So it doesn’t apply for me. haha 😀

        • Ainigmaris Thales

          I miss the days when the US had balls.

      • cheeseburgercheeseburger

        didja get banned?

        • Ainigmaris Thales

          No… but I was giving a very stern warning!

    • John Galt

      “Initially she was all smug..”

      The operative being she. About a dozen years ago I ran into my old long retired elementary school principal who became the HS superintendent about the time I went. He rememered me and asked about my siblings by first name and bought me a beer. We reminiscenced about some of the students in the old days (late 70s- early 80s) and he told me about a friend of mine who once fought another student in front of his window unknowingly.

      His secretary asked him, “aren’t you going to break that up?” He replied, “No. Rick has been running his mouth all week. He has it coming.” It wasn’t until my friend had Rick on the ground kicking him, he looked at his secretary and said, “now it’s time.”

      I tell my kids to don’t start or provoke fights, but once some one lays a hand on you, finish them. Disregard what the teachers tell you and the trouble the comes after, I will deal with them.

    I think we need to discuss the real issue… the use of multi-colored emojis. Emojis are bright yellow. That is the only color emojis should be. The use of of any other color emoji is SJW cancer.

    • bem

      Stop thread-jackin’ you anti-emojite!

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        I’m just bringing up the important topics. The hard questions. The true cultural problem that no one else has the guts to face.

        • bem

          This should be its own article.

          • Ainigmaris Thales

            You’re damn right it should. But no! People are too scared to face the REAL issues!

            • bem

              they can’t HANDLE the truth.

              • Ainigmaris Thales

                They NEED me in this comment section. They NEED me out here on this wall, fighting the good fight, championing the cause, and protecting them from the influx of multi-colored emoji cancer!

            • Next time on the AKC Open Threads…

  • bem

    A fukkin re-run already?!?!?!?!

  • Murdoc34

    Glad to see you try it out. Worst that could happen is it just doesn’t work the way you want it to. I hope it succeeds and draws more like minded participants.

    The general theme here appeals to me as my family is starting/growing right now. First kid due in a few months!

    • Congratulations.

    • bem

      Nice shootin’ Tex!

      • Murdoc34

        First attempt at creating life. Usually it’s the other way around.

    • cheeseburgercheeseburger

      congrats- do you know if its a xir or a xe?

  • Ainigmaris Thales

    I just stared at the eclipse and now I’m blind, and it’s all Trump’s fault!

    • bem

      They should have warning signs on the sun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      In Spanish too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        Yes, warning signs! I need to sue someone for not putting sufficient warning signs on the sun. In multiple languages, and in symbols for those of us who never learned how to read.

        • bem

          I lay the blame squarely at the feet of the oppressive white patriarchy from which you spawned.

          • Ainigmaris Thales

            (((((The sun)))))

            • iBooB

              Dem Jews and their fuckin sun

                They’re into Satin I think. They worship silky materials that make them feel kind of sexy when they slip into it

                • Art

                  That’s what you can expect from someone whose foreskin has been taken from him.

        • Murdoc34

          […] warning signs on the sun.

          Warning: Reading this sign will cause blindness.

          • Ainigmaris Thales

            Hmm, maybe we need warning signs on the warning signs…

    Houston man charged with trying to plant bomb at Confederate statue in Hermann Park

    A Houston man has been charged with trying to plant explosives at the statue of Confederate officer Richard Dowling in Hermann Park, federal officials said Monday.

    Andrew Schneck, 25, who was released from probation early last year after being convicted in 2015 of storing explosives, was charged in a criminal complaint filed in federal court, Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez said in a statement Monday.

    • Saw another article where some leftist took a sledgehammer to a Christopher Columbus statue as well.

    • Murdoc34

      Did he misinterpret the end of his probation as permission to begin using explosives again?

      […]he tried to drink some of the liquid explosives but spit it out

      I do wish this had been caught on camera.

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        This dude really, really wanted to blow something up. Should have started with himself.

    Might I suggest a mash up with his open thread and one of yours articles:
    How to Handle Daughters
    Raising Bullies

    • If you want Raising Bullies, you ought to ask on thesavagelifestyle.com instead.

    I got one of the worst beating of my life from a bully who was a few years older than I when I was in the 7th grade at a Friday night football game. I guess he thought I would just take it but I fought back with everything I had until the cops showed up. I even managed to mark him up a little, my face was black and blue Saturday morning but that guy nor any of his buddies that were around to see it never bothered me again.
    Even now after almost 40 years guys mention that fight to me when I see them.
    Bullies want easy prey the only way to counter them is to stand up for yourself or outrun them, I prefer standing my ground.

  • Ainigmaris Thales

    So what are we going to do today, kids?

      I’ll be keeping an eye on Phoenix, checking out the various freaks, the moronic protesting, and associated violence levels.

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        Yeah, that could be interesting

  • Allister Collins
