I agree with you.
I’m pretty sure anyone’s parents have talked to them about being bullied or anything, not because it didn’t use to exist, but because:
a) They were the bullies themselves
b) They had something that stopped people from messing with them or
c) They fought back, even if they lost
When I was a manlet kid, my mother always told me that if I let the other kids bother me, the would beat the living shit out of me.
Most of the time I didn’t win, but at least that gave me some respect. It’s not the same to be a fag and let people punch you and do anything about it than to be beaten up but at least give some kid a blackeye or something.
From my point of view, bullying is more like a natural selection thing (although we live in an artificial selection environment), but nowadays kids are too pussies for coping with something like that.
