    Some kids will make fun of other kids just because they like to. I'm sure if you didn't like Transformers he would just tease you about something else you like. The key is to not let him know that it bugs you. Keep your head up and just ignore him to the best of your ability. He will grow bored of you if he gets no reaction from you and will focus on something else.

    Don't get me wrong I would happily punch this guy in face but then I'd be bad guy for "physical assault" and he would get of the hook no matter what he did

    Well, if you've reported him to the office on multiple occasions and he's still doing it, clearly the teachers and staff aren't going to do anything about it. Which is really sad, considering how much of a problem bullying is today.

    Anyway, what you need to do is to not ignore him, but attack his harrassments with reason and sensibility. I'd give an example, but first I must ask: how does he harrass you? Like, what does he say?

    As for me, I kept my collecting a secret until my sophomore year in high school. By then, nobody really cared.

    On here no, In school though I would be wary. But its easy to defend urself. Ask him "So giant robots killing eachother with explosions isnt cool?!" Thats like the definition of cool! Tell him to "go watch all the TF movies, then well talk." :thumb

    Throughout high school and college I kept my geek hobbies to myself. I still don't really advertise them. I don't consider this hiding who I am, my values and beliefs are who I am, not a hobby.

    High school and being a teenager is tough, other kids really know how to make you feel like crap. The jerks will never understand or accept. Just remember depression is real and there is no shame in talking to a professional.

    Well sadly, I didn't got to tell people (outside of my circle of friends) that I was big into Transformers. In 8th grade a few douche bags found out about a Youtube channel I had and did videos of Transformers (reviews, stop-motions, etc) and decided to show it to the entire class when the teacher walked out one day. I got picked on that entire fucking class and it did nothing but piss me off. But after that I went and picked up ROTF Leader Prime and Megatron and Deluxe Soundwave! It was the first day ROTF stuff came out, so it made my day a bit better!

    The picking on has mostly stopped (but there is the occasional douche that wants to remind me) but honestly I could care less with what people think about me. Transformers is a great fandom to be a part of and collecting and making stop-motions is a good hobby to have!

    Nope. A girl once asked me if I still buy action figures while I was in middle school, but that's about it.

    Damn, bro. That's horrible, but awesome that you've taken it in stride.
