A gay Indiana teen whose mother gave him a stun gun to defend himself against bullies is facing expulsion for bringing the weapon to school and reportedly firing it into the air.The hell of it is, as I look at the way schools respond to bullying in the modern age, I see them creating every single possible thoughtcrime, showing a marked pattern of hostility towards self defense, and continuing to fail to prevent bullying. And even unarmed, you can't fight back anymore-they punish both of you the same.
Bullying is as old as childhood itself, though it doesn't end there. In the end, the only response to bullying is a good hard ball stomping, because bullying is an expression of cowardice and insecurity and nothing deters it like the possibility of ball stomping.
It actually puts me in mind of two gay guys I knew in my hometown of New Dunwich. They were big butch motherfuckers in a small redneck town, yet because they were big butch motherfuckers who made it clear they wouldn't take no shit, they rarely got fucked with. The solution is simple and has been here the whole time if we care to look at it. But no, instead we make focus groups and talk about the bully's broken home or
violent video games or rap music-and we fucking suspend the victim if he fights back. Oh, and we tell him he shouldn't act so gay.
Larry Yarrell, the school’s principal, told the Star that he suggested to Young to “tone down” the flamboyant accessories he was wearing to school.
