“It’s not bullying if it happened on the bus. It only happens in school. It’s just horseplay. Lighten up!”
“It’s not bullying if he tries to throw your toys or books out the window when the bus is moving. He’s only joking.”
“It’s not bullying if he made you feel worthless and weak. You’re just paranoid.”
“It’s not bullying if he hurt you against your will. You’re six and handicapped. It was your fault in the first place.”
It’s not bullying, it’s torture.
