ghostofme, you go boy!! You will see, when you stand up for yourself, people start backing down. Even if there are any repercutions for this, which I doubt, but if there are, what do you have to lose anyway? You already have SAD. Nothing worst can happen. If anything, he probably respects you more and is probably thinking to himself "what a dick, but im glad he did it. He should be sticking up for himself more." but he will never show it to you, but he could be thinking it. Who knows, you keep being self assertive and dont let people walk all over you, you will start to see how many more friends you get. Its happened to me before. Whenever I start feeling confidant and good about myself, people flock to me. I know this much.

In high school I would purposely give people the wrong answers if they asked to copy my homework :3 Though I think I only had to do that once or twice~

That's whatsup. Being brave enough to stick up for what you believed was right is respectable.

It would have been sweet if you had a fake homework with all the wrong answers

You should wait for him after school and hospitalize him. That will earn you all the respect you need.

Good job! I feel like I can be too passive at times but it feels great standing up for yourself. I don't like it when people treat you like you're the one doing something wrong, when they're the ones doing what's wrong in the first place LOL.
