Sophia Tai Posted over 2 years ago Should bullying be actionable? Being bullied is very hurtful and leaves scars for the rest of ones life. But sometimes I wonder if that is just the way nature works, and maybe all of us are and need to be scarred. I don't think there is any adult out there who was never bullied. The thought of suicides commited because of bullies is very saddening, but I don't think bullies can be stopped. It's the cause of human nature. The Stanford prison experiment shows this side of us humans very clearly. Bullying might have a benefit (like tickling, as kids we don't like to be tickled, but it teaches us self defence), it is just that we all might have been bullied and we don't like to think of it as something beneficial. Those are my thoughts! :) Edit: I have never whitnessed or experienced physical bullies (only verbal bullies and cyberbullies), so I don't have an opinion on that.
