Another day, another moron saying moronic things.
Take, for example, the current Mayor of Porterville, California, Cameron Hamilton, who claims:
"All most people just have to grow a pair, and stick up for them damn selves."
And I didn't misquote the guy, either. That kind of grammar rape could only come from a crass blockhead like Mayor Hamilton. Plus, anyone that has ever been bullied will know that it is never THAT simple.
Not that his solution is even original. This type of answer has been the standard oversimplified response of truck-nut consumers everywhere. Talk about mantras, Mayor!
Besides, hasn't this guy ever heard of psychological bullying? What happens when a young, desperate victim of psychological bullying decides to take this guy's advice and start a fight? More than likely the victim will end up being punished, not the bully.
Blaming the victim is NEVER the answer to bullying, Mayor. You're an embarrassment to your community.
