OP recalls his high school days, dominated by bullying from a boy named B. B and his friends persistently teased OP for his effeminate mannerisms, inciting deep-seated anxiety within him. High school was a place of torment for OP, a fact he attributes primarily to B’s incessant insults.

The bullying escalated to physical abuse during their PE classes, making high school a personal hell for OP. B’s actions were especially harsh, given OP used to be overweight and acne-ridden, making him an easy target. B was an integral part of OP’s high school trauma.

OP’s anger is stoked further when he notices that the comments on B’s post are all overwhelmingly supportive. B is applauded for “living his truth,” which exacerbates OP’s bitterness. He feels the urge to voice his own opinion.

Unleashing the Truth

OP responds publicly to B’s post, pointing out the hypocrisy and manipulativeness in B’s narrative. He reminds B and their peers about the torment he endured in high school due to the same identity that B now celebrates. He aims to reveal B’s past as a bully, contradicting B’s victimhood.

The Backlash

OP’s comment, intended to expose B’s hypocrisy, backfires. He is criticized by classmates and other commenters for being petty and holding a grudge against B. The support B had garnered turns against OP, intensifying his feelings of injustice.

Message of Accusation

One of the classmates messages OP privately, accusing him of raining on B’s parade and lacking empathy. He is told that he does not understand B’s journey and that he is being unnecessarily negative. This interaction pushes OP further into the role of a villain.

Internal Conflict

OP starts questioning himself, wondering if he is indeed wrong to call out B’s new revelation. Despite this self-doubt, he maintains that B’s actions were a significant source of his high school trauma. He finds himself torn between societal judgment and his own convictions.

The Anonymous Support

An anonymous person reaches out to OP, offering their support. They reveal that they, too, were bullied by B in high school. OP discovers from his anonymous supporter that B has a history of bullying others, not just him. His perception of B as a manipulative individual deepens.

Gathering Evidence

Encouraged by this revelation, OP starts gathering evidence of B’s bullying from their high school years. He hopes to unveil B’s true nature to their former classmates. OP faces resistance from some of his high school classmates who refuse to acknowledge B’s past bullying, adamant about ignoring his dark past.

Public Exposure

OP manages to gather irrefutable evidence of B’s past and decides to go public with it. He exposes B’s history of bullying on various social media platforms, expecting resistance and confrontation. He is met with a wave of resistance from some, while others begin to question B’s character.

The Face-off

B finally reacts to OP’s accusations, denying his past and labeling OP as a spiteful grudge-holder. He attempts to twist the narrative in his favor, causing more divisions among their high school peers. This direct confrontation escalates the feud between B and OP.

A Battle Fought, A Battle Won

OP, having exposed B’s past, feels a sense of relief despite the emotional toll of the battle. While he did not receive the closure he hoped for, he feels satisfaction in having stood up against B’s hypocrisy.

The social media storm resulted in many mixed views on the matter. Here are some of their responses:

Forum Responds

One reader said, “I’m so tired of everyone defending a bad person just because they come out as a part of the LGBTQ+ community. That’s just disgusting, and I’m sorry. He was projecting his own insecurities into bullying you, and now people are defending him because he came out.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote, “Yeah, you probably didn’t need to comment on their post, but as someone who was also extensively bullied for the same things, I’d probably do the same thing you have.”

A Third View on The Story

A different person stated, “He tormented you in high school, which is absolutely wrong, and he’s a hypocrite, which is one of the worst things a person can be. However, his behavior probably came from a place of insecurity about his sexuality. A lot of homophobia is from repressed sexuality. He was probably trying to overcompensate. Doesn’t make what he did right.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another person commented, “As a fellow community member, I get tired of people who were awful to other people coming out and using that as an excuse for their shitty behavior. As if being gay or bi forgives them for all past sins.”
