I disagree that victims of social exclusion are primarily female. Social exclusion happens within both genders. Especially in highschool, which is where my point of reference comes from. Think of the nerdy/awkward boys and how the popular/jocks treat them. Furthermore, I would think that physical bullying inherently carries emotional damage with it... Meaning that physical bullying is both physical and emotional, whereas emotional bullying is purely that.
I wouldn't encourage either within our schools, but given a PERSONAL choice for myself? I put much less stock in social relationships than the vast majority of people, I think. Feeling excluded would hardly be an issue for me. And so, I stand by my statement. For me as an individual... I would rather face social exclusion than have 3 females kicking me while I curl up in the fetal position.
