Bullies. This seems to be a humanoid trait and the crux of it is that the desires of little souled/ little minded powerless people think this gives them control. Those effected think to shrink from pain or embarrassment, but they must by choice preempt their tormentors by turning the tables somehow or someway! Find the warrior within. Find their OWN power. Not violence nor hostility, but a complete absence of fear. That's what these mutants feed on... Terror.
'No need to filter this through the peanut gallery' - sorry that my fiancé and I don't keep things from one another. If I was as classless as you, I would email your boyfriend and let him in on so much he doesn't know. I will never stoop to your level. Pathetic.
