It started in Kindergarden being called names about how small I was. I was also called a "N" lover because I had friends of color. As I got older by 6th grade I was teased called Rabbit because my teeth were so big. By Jr. High I was called bones, mouse, short and the list goes on about skinny short people. In Jr.High school 9th grade a girl threatened to beat me up because I was friends with someone she didn't like. It ended good as we all became friends.
My sophomore year two jocks threw me into the garbage can because I walked down the Senior Walkway that I didn't know about.
Now I'm teased but I can handle it and it seems different. But I'm an advocate on no tolerance to bullying aka teasing, etc. When it comes to teasing me as an adult I make the call and control it and if it hurts me I tell them. I'm trying to present to young people to be an active bystander with the person being picked on (bullying).
