We are not mental health professionals here. The approved boundaries on WP are: It's okay to express frustration, complain about bad experiences, be sad, angry, etc. If one does it in The Haven, they is also protected from criticism and "constructive advice" they may not be ready for. It's...

There's one more thing that can be easily used: Status is something relative. Look for small communities where securing local status is easier for you - especially communities that value something you can do. It will boost your chances and your mental health (which also makes people more attractive).

^^^ Ugh, the American obsession with status. AFAIK, most people in the world are also average status. Anyway - it's okay to complain about struggle. It's crossing the border when one starts to spew offensive generalizations on others. Ironpony asked why these ideologies are frowned upon - the answer...

Shouldn't we treat it as a public health issue and invest in publicly available child and adolescent psychiatry?

Guys whose natural looks would cross them out are actually very rare. Most people in the world are average-looking and they make most of the families in the world. Relationships are totally for average-looking people.
Guys whose behaviors cross them out are way more common.

And, possibly, frustrated teenagers really have less options to deal with their frustration in less destructive ways? It would help if fewer adults and authorities were ignorant as*holes: go to them with bullying and you get, "Oh, they are just teasing you because they like you." I wonder...

Here, too, in the US.

Good Samaritans are very much admired here.
And attacking the weaker is seen as a disgrace. Only cowards do it.
Of course, there are still unpopular kids, social rejection, etc. - but it has to take subtler forms and this limits bullies' numbers and options.

Do we really need more than one thread addressing the same subject?

If not, can this thread be merged with
 This Other Thread ?

Maybe, if the OP wants to focus on adressing bullying vs gun control, we should rename this topic to make it clear.
If not, you're right.

Some experts suggest that changing the attitudes and involvement of bystanders could have the biggest impact on bullies. Bystanders are kids who witness but are not victims of bullying. Since bullies love an audience, a bystander's encouragement or toleration of the bully will make the bully strong...

Employers and advertisers have already reduced men to mere commodities so why should women contradict the obvious preference of society? Maybe because this "obvious preference of society" is making everyone miserable? That would be a good reason. The question is, what proportion of the po...

It is a gun issue and a number of other issues all wrapped up and entangled together. Indeed. I once wondered why there are no school shootings here - and decided that every society has frustrated teenagers, but here, the frustrated teenagers buy/steal from their parents vodka and get wasted. Still...

The reason behind my post was the suggestion contained within the article that finding peace was preferable to continued conflict in this region (and, in my view, in all regions around the world). It quickly became apparent, however, that some people were not interested in discussing the preferabil...
