    Your right to life is never forfeit.
    There is no such thing as verbal self-defense.

    You have the right to defend yourself and others whenever you feel your life is at risk. Unless there’s an armed gang in the school, you’re safe. Verbal self defense is good. Shut them down with intelligent comebacks. Try not to use profanity. Most bullies are stupid and use brawn because they have no brains. Also a little background info could help too. A good comeback would be “…at least my father isn’t in the state pen!”

    The right to self-defense is never forfeit. When a person attacks you, you may defend yourself in an appropriate fashion. However, know the difference between self-defense and revenge. Revenge is “you hit me, so I get to hit you back.” That’s not how it works. This kind of behavior just escalates violence. Defense is steps taken to stop violence or avoid it.

    The right to self-defense does not include the right to carry and use deadly weapons. These are separate principles.

    Verbal self-defense is fine. Just do it right, or it simply won’t work. Often getting very emotional and shouting or cussing does not work. The verbal abuser’s whole point was to make you mad, and that is success to him or her. Failing to make you mad makes them upset, because your not acting like a victim. If they get so upset at your lack of reaction that they turn things physical, do what you have to to stop them, and/or see to it that they get expelled for their actions.
