Now, I know you're not meant to encourage violence, but this is just beautiful.
A local kid I know pretty well was being harassed by a smug little shithead, actually a little younger than him, I think. But this kid is a decent (some not-so-legal escapades notwithstanding), non-violent sort, and after some bullying, he ran off to feel sorry for himself out the front of his house.
The little jerkass apparently followed him, taunting him with crap like "C'mon, stop being gay. Stop being a pussy." Y'know, such wonderful witticisms.
Now, the kid is non-violent. He's actually got quite a few issues that cause him to come unraveled during confrontation; including PTSD and just general low self-esteem.
But he also has an explosive temper if pushed. Just anger problems. Usually, these things cancel each other out, and he just does nothing (or runs away).
Not this time. He snapped. The jerkass got too close and was slugged straight in the face. Twice. Then ran away like a bitch to his extended family. Who told him "that's what you get for being a fuckwit" and dragged him away. Aboriginal family, see, they don't bother mincing words. :D
But wait, it gets better. The kid comes over to me sometime afterwards, really distressed. Make no mistake, he had been crying, even while he was kicking the jerk's ass. Who deserved it, by the way, trust me. That little bastard deserves maaany punches to the face, and the other kid really needs to get the confidence and, dare I say it, the ability to handle aggression so he can defend himself.
But he felt horrible, because he'd never tried to punch someone in the head before. Let alone several times, almost as hard as he could. He was upset at himself for it - even though I'm pretty sure he was a little proud of himself too.
God knows I am. He beat the shit out of someone for bullying him, then feels terrible for it afterwards. He even asked me if what he did was wrong.
"Eh. Just don't make a habit out of it." XD
