Am I being teased or bullied?
Negative behavior or bullying is often dismissed as a joke. However, teasing can quickly turn into bullying. Bullying is systematically carried out by the same person and often involves inequality in power, strength, or social status. In teasing, this occasionally happens between different parties. The same person may be teased for a long time or frequently. Once the recipient no longer finds it funny or amusing, teasing turns into bullying.
