    Normally i don't give two shits about ESPN and their polls, but found this one pretty interesting:

    Interesting because you have over 130k people that voted, and yet it is an exact 50/50 split to the question, and mostly that split appears to be divided along political lines ("blue" states and "red" states, so its funny they color coded them that way)

    That map looks like a Dem/Rep chart.

    I'm so tired of people getting their feelings hurt, and crying about it. Toughen up!!

    Your feelings aren't protected in the constitution or the Bill of Rights.

    We need to go back to bamboo shoots and water boarding if you're offsides, or commit a penalty.

    They're not? I'm hitting my representative up on this right now. I'm sure it's an oversight.

    So, in your opinion then a big strong jock is perfectly able to pick on, harass, intimidate a smaller, glasses wearing bookworm just because he is able to, and the smaller less intimidating one is unable to defend himself?

    How about the poor little kid who gets bullied because he is overweight (possibly due to genetics) or the handicapped kid who was born with disabilities.

    Yeah... they need to toughen up. Great parent you are going to be. I can see it now.

    You have a little child who suffers from a variety of ailments, making him different. Making him one of the kids that are bullied. He comes home crying because some bully beat him up. Called him names. Shoved him in the locker. You are going to laugh at him, tell him to toughen up. Great parenting.

    Or

    You have one of the bullying kids who harasses children who are different. He comes home gloating about how he terrorized another helpless victim and you slap him on the back and congratulate him on doing a great job.

    For your sake, I hope you have a child like the first one. So you might actually change your thoughts on the matter. Though, knowing you (from what I can tell from your posts) you will likely have a response of "no child of mine will be a sissy who gets bullied". But, you never know. Maybe you will have a child who is considered a runt. Someone who no matter how much you push around and bully yourself (all in the intent to toughen him up) will still be the child who gets pushed around.

    Then again, hopefully you never breed. The world would be better off without people like you who think it is okay to bully a child because they are different.

    People like you make me sick.

    Yeah, this is America. Here we just randomly kill people to "get even".........Just come back into the locker room and smoke 'em all. Martin was a damned "sissy" for failing to do this "The American Way"........isn't that how a lot of people now "settle things" in the workplace? Or they just randomly go to a school and kill children there.

    On a serious note, I get so sick of people questioning Martin. Jonathan Martin is a hero in my eyes. He handled this the right way IMHO. Bullying is wrong in ANY place - even football locker rooms. Just because some things were tolerated in the past, doesn't make them right. Hopefully most folks are "better people" than this. If the NFL doesn't clean up its act (on many levels) it will ultimately hurt the sport we love. And that's a damned shame.

    Most of the people who are in "favor" of bullying or (toughen up) fancy themselves bad ass's. Aint nobody gonna bully me and if they do I's whip they ass. The reality is not everyone is capable of standing up to a bully. A lot of the time it takes someone in the bullies peer group to stand up to to them. If you see someone picking on a weaker person YOU should stand up to the bully. Don't push that responsibility off on the person who is obviously weaker. Be the man you think you are and take on the asshole.

    Then again you can walk away and say that it isn't your problem and IF they did it to you things would be different. Early morning rant over lol

    Most of the times, these bullies are also dependent on their groups. Most of the time these bullies hide behind their friends and the whole group gangs up on the poor defenseless child. Yeah, that is bravery and toughness. Outnumber an already weaker and defenseless person.

    Not everyone needs to be toughen up.

    Some people are just too darn sensitive and need some scares to thicken their skin. :D
