...Does it ever work? I mean, that's biggest missing piece of the puzzle for me. Think about it, there has to be something fundamentally 'off' about a person who feels satisfied by hurting another person. I can't imagine what the 'thrill' would be. The kid was 9. What challenge could someone have in hurting a 9 year old's feelings? I would think it would make you feel worse for hurting somebody. I always feel bad. It's like, whatever it was that I was so angry about or so threatened by, I just made it worse. Now I'm the asshole, you know?
Even as a little kid, I knew that. I teased people all the time. More in a playful way, but if the mood seemed to change or they looked upset or hurt, it was like, "Whoah, enough is enough. I'm sorry, k? I'll stop." What happened to human compassion? So the boy discovered he was gay? So what? Like...your nasty comments were going to cure him? Were you looking for a fight? Did you WANT him to kill himself? What was the goal here? What's he trying to prove? What would be the desired effect of a bully's actions? Or are they just being a dick for the sake of being one?
I just can't imagine pushing someone that far. And now he has to live with the knowledge that he really REALLY crossed the line. And now someone is dead. A family destroyed. A future erased. Was it worth it?
Is it ever?
