I used to get bullied mercilessly in school just because I was an introvert. I had to engage in several fist fights to protect myself. (Bullies often have no regard for their victim's well-being,but they do respect a heavy-hitter with the will to fight back.)
The whole "Violence is never the answer" bullshit was largely responsible for why I spent a large chunk of my childhood miserable until I finally stopped caring and fought back.
My life after I graduated high school has been the happiest stage of my life so far,although I'm not saying my life is perfect now. (Not even close)
The point though is,bad kids can be just as cruel as bad adults. Maybe you're experience is different.
What I meant was that teen kids in a group seem to have much more loyalty towards each other than adult friends seem. There are exceptions though. I have no friends either. I am an introvert too. I have been bullied many times too. But it happens verbally mostly and sometimes physically. Although I must say, I did fight back but most of it was flailing around angrily. But now, I can handle most people. Also, essentially I kind of learned to blend in. Most people in my class don't even notice me unless I go talk to them first. So I avoided most problems. Also, yes I am not a fan of nonviolence either. Violence is necessary in some cases. Its happens everywhere. Even between the peaceful countries ideological warfare still continues. There is no complete peace in this world. True peace can only be found in our mind.
