I also recall, rather vividly, the part in the book where Diana is gushing to Anne about how awesome it is that Gilbert's come back to their school. ' "He just torments our lives out, Anne." Her tone of voice indicated Diana rather liked having her life tormented out than not. ' Made no sense to me at the time. Still doesn't.

Bullying as a form of male admiration was bullshit back then, and it was bullshit when school staff members tried to explain away the bullying I received from boys (they had less to fall on when it came to the girl bullies), and it continues to be pure and utter bullshit.
