How do you react to bullying for being a nerd?

Post by samlan16 » February 2nd, 2015, 2:18 pm

I simply thank the bully for acknowledging my intelligence and offer homework help. It works pretty often.

In my school, Science Olympiad people are often touted as celebrities (lol) because we are a primarily academic high school. I don't think any bullying really occurs, as I've never seen any. And I've been here for four years :D
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.
You should only create problems, that only you know solutions to.

:lol: Describes my middle school; half the school is in Science Olympiad anyway. My high school, however, is conspicuously devoid of bullies...

I actually don't have to worry about it that much. I sort of have an unspoken agreement with the non-nerds at my school: they ignore me, I ignore them, everything's fine. I usually surround myself with other nerds anyway. :P

For the most part that is how my school is, but there still exists the uncommon loser whose parents teach him or her to peak in high school like they did in the 80s. And naturally, those incompetents pick on the SciOly people.

I honestly didn't realize people get bullied for being a nerd, I just thought that was a dumb movie thing that doesn't exist LOL!

People generally don't. But when the rare idiotic bully appears, I just smile and thank them for pointing out how superior I am to them. :geek:

Gather all your nerd friends and start throwing equations, chemical formulas, and other knowledge at them.
