Bullying works differently between the genders, and word and physical bullying are also different. This comic is on boy-to-boy word bullying. If you were looking for tips on physical bullying, I can give you this: Fight back and they will look for someone easier. If you don't want to be aggressive at it then use a defensive martial art like Aikido or Jujitsu. When you call to others for help against a word bully, the bully sees you as "weakling and a crybaby" and will continue picking on you. If you stand up he's likely to stop. If he continues, challenge him to a fight, and as his "tough guy" status obliges him to, he will most likely accept. As I said earlier, if you don't want to be the aggressor then use Aikido or Jujitsu, etc.. Whether you win or lose, he's going to stop bullying and search for easier prey. Also, if it comes to fight your image might be improved, the opposite of what the bully wants.
