Sometimes but I have observed that since BBT, nerds are getting kinda cool, glbt kids still get teased a bit though, mainly in private religious schools, where bullying in general is far more rampant.<quoted text>
In Australia, are the smarter kids in schools the ones who get made fun of? It's like that.
I was a nerd but also a tomboy jock with three younger brothers, I only ever got teased once in each school.
Nuns were mean though, they hit me with sticks for asking questions, then I'd get expelled, I may have reacted unfavorably at being hit with a stick, that was in Sth America though, not Oz.
