Help - I got bullied by this really tough jock girl today & I need advice?
I got bullied by a girl today. She got in my face shoving me & trying to intimidate me and ridiculing me for being scared to fight her. I was completely shocked. She's is a tad shorter than me, but she is an athlete (captain of the girls b-ball team and plays v-ball and track). I'm more of a "nerd." (and I've never been in a fight). pic http://community.webshots.com/photo/fullsize/1265047547055621173ibIiNw
a) Why does everyone keep saying she can beat me up? Their all like she's gonna pound you - you looked like you were gonna cry, etc. (is it the jock/nerd thing?)
b) What does she get out of bullying me? Does it make her feel empowered that she can beat up a boy? Do girls get respect/toughness cred if they beat up a boy?
c) Do you think she really could beat me up? What makes you think so?
