I am trying to help out a younger person who is in a situation I can relate to from my school days. A young man already struggling with his own gender identity and sexual orientation who generally tries to mind his own business and wants to be left alone is dealing with a group of bullies, mostly female , who are making life harder. It started as verbal taunts, gossip and manipulation, and later escalated and got physical. It does seem that there is a double standard in Western culture about males being punished if they try to defend themselves against a female attacker. I have actually heard at least one teacher admit that if this was a group of boys doing the same thing to a girl they would all take it much more seriously, but no one seems willing to do anything to get them to leave him alone. Any suggestions to help?
Sorry for the question … is the young man struggling to present that picture in his social environment?
I ask this because sexual orientation is a lasting emotional, romantic, sexual or emotional attraction to others. It is easily distinguished from other components of sexuality that include biological sex, sexual identity (the psychological sense of being male or female) and the social role of sex (respect for cultural norms of female and male behavior).
Sexual orientation exists along the continuum that ranges from exclusive heterosexuality to exclusive homosexuality and includes various forms of bisexuality. Bisexual people may experience a sexual, emotional and emotional attraction to people of the same sex and the opposite sex. People with a homosexual orientation are sometimes referred to as gay (both men and women) or lesbians (women only).
Sexual orientation is different from sexual behavior because it refers to feelings and the concept of oneself. People may or may not express their sexual orientation in their behaviors. Your observation referred to exactly to develop a focused diagnosis?
Sorry, should have been more specific. He is primarily attracted to other males his age and is still trying to figure out whether he is comfortable living in a male body or whether he may want to consider identifying as a different gender as he gets older, although he is hoping to escape the small conservative town we live in so he can more freely explore other ways of living. I think the bullies have picked up on some hints that he is not straight or completely gender conforming and this is one of the vulnerable areas in his life that they are targeting.
Perhaps an invisibility spell to go unnoticed, like the Rose Cross ritual, would be helpful. The possible downside is your friend wouldn’t be noticed by the teachers either.
You do not have to apologize or feel any signal, thanks for your empathy, respect and moderation when expressing that painful situation I will see what words would be edifying for your approach, even so the community is online and will surely give light on this.
Baal actually comes to mind, not only for helping to make himself “invisible” (aka unnoticeable) to threats but also build the confidence to become invincible from those wishing to tear him down
