But the additional information seems to corroborate it. The point still stands that Romney not only allegedly physically assaulted a boy but led other boys in the assault, something the vast majority of kids do not do, and you excuse it by pointing to the kids who bullied by non-physical means.
Fixed that for you.
I can bring research to the table about non-physical means being every bit as damaging as physical means. If you don't think so what do you have to say about kids committing suicide over it? As others have stated that was 50 years ago, things were different then.
Which leads me to ask:
A survey from 2010 somehow is relevant to what the situation was like in 1965 in what way?
I would have a hard time believing you are undecided based on your pattern of discussion in this thread.
