Going through school I never realized how bad bullying actually was. I was always really strong and was able to let things go easily and ignore things. Looking back on it I was lucky because a lot of people can't. Bullying has been a problem for years but nowadays I believe it is worse because all of the different places kids can be bullied. I have always been a tomboy and have been heavy set since about the 5th grade. The earliest experience I remember was third grade when a girl in my class continuously called me fat. Eventually I had enough and resorted to violence (punched her and held her against a chalk board). Violence shouldn't have been the answer I should have went to the teacher about it because after the fact the teacher told me if I would have come to her she would have done something. The teacher didn't even want to suspend me but had to. I continued to struggle with my weight (still do) so that was kind of a thing people would make fun of me about. Also since I have always been a tomboy people would make fun of me for that. I hear things like are you a boy or why don't you act/dress like a girl, sometimes they would even call me gay or ask if I was gay. Bullying is not acceptable and I just want to be able to help people.
