How to cope with bullies?
Before I explain, I wanna say that I am in a program in Special Ed for asbergers, and I don't talk to people because I'm really shy. There are those preppy girls that sit around my table in mainstream Spanish class, one in back, the other in front, and the WORST OF THE WORST sits across from me (I'll call her Lindsey), so that group talked bad about me behind my back, and I was sitting RIGHT in front of them and I can hear everything. They said that I never talk, that I'm retarded, I have ADD, have I lost my medicine, etc. And they were even looking at me and laughing. I didn't like that at all and I wanted to say something to them, but couldn't, because I'm afraid of standing up to myself, so I thought they probably wouldn't do anything, but I was DEAD WRONG!!! Two weeks ago, they started talking and asking me about random stuff like if I am stupid or something, then out of nowhere, they started asking me if I am gay, because I keep staring at them, I said NO! I just have a staring problem, that's all, and I'm currently working on it, and then they just say, yeah, you're gay alright, and they started spreading the rumor that I am a lesbian, that I am desperate for attention, that I slept with Lindsey's ex-boyfriend, etc., and now I'm pretty much the most hated person in the entire school, everyone stares at me now, everyone laughs at me, everyone talks about me, everyone is ignoring me, even my best friend is against me and now I'm all by myself on lunch and gym class, and now Lindsey, her group of preppy friends and her current boyfriend are now starting to bully me physically, they always take my lunch and throw it in the garbage, they always ask me for the remainder of my lunch money everyday, if I don't, they (and her bf) beat me up after school, block my locker and call me names, take my backpack and always throws it to the next person if I try to catch it, they once stole my lipgloss from my backpack without me even knowing it, put gum in my hair, they would draw naked pictures of me on a piece of paper and write "SL#T", and would make everyone sign the paper saying "We all hate (my full name) so much, we want her out of school, or even better, DEAD", and then in the back, it would have a drawing of Lindsay and her boyfriend shooting me and I'm laying in a pool of blood and they both put their thumbs up, and everyone is now calling me the lonely loser (which inspires me to put the name next to my avatar). One time, me and my mom came to the principals office and told him everything and the principal said he'll do something to stop it, but he never did, he doesn't care. Somehow, Lindsey found out that I tried to get her in trouble, so now she and her friends are bullying me now more than ever, and on Thursday, after school, she, her friends, and most of the kids from the school circled around me and they all took turns beating me up, and I didn't go to school Friday and I didn't go Monday either, because I am TERRIFIED of all the kids in my school, my mom kept calling the program, but all they do is call the principal, and neither my program, nor the principal, did anything to solve it. I can't be homeschooled because my parents work and I want to get out of that school, but my parents won't let me, because, the thing is, I transferred schools alot of times because I was being bullied, and my current high school is supposed to be a great school with strict teachers (who by the way, all plays favorites and usually there favorites are the ones that join in an after school activity or sport). I can't join an after school activity or sport because everyone hates me and I'll just get isolated again, and I'll be hanging around by myself, so it's not an option. I came back to school after two days of being absent before Winter Break and again, Lindsey and her gang ran all her sh*t about me, blocked my locker, punching and slapping me, her boyfriend kicked me in the back, they both asked me why did I come back to school, I'm supposed to be out of that school, because nobody likes me, and that I'm nothing but a Lonely Loser to them, they both say that if I show up to school again after Winter Break, I'm gonna get ridiculed more and get beaten up more. As usual, teachers do nothing, the principal hates me for some reason, and my special ed program doesn't help much with my problems, and the special-ed kids in the program all hate me and bully me as much as the preppy gang. And as usual, Lindsey stole my money at lunch, and stole my lunch and threw it in the garbage, and everyone stares at me and laugh everytime I pass by. How do I cope with bullies? I'm afraid she's going to hurt me more bad than she ever did. UUGGHHHH!!!! I HATE HIGH SCHOOL SOOOO MUCH =( C'mon guys, pleeeassee! You all need to take this seriously! I'm going through alot in school right now, and I'm only a freshmen, and this girl is about a few inches taller than me, and she is bullying me! If none of you can help me on this one, I think I'll either drop out once I turn 16 or commit suicide, because seriously, I CANNOT take this abuse anymore! So decide what's more important to you guys...

Didn't you ask this yesterday? Just ignore it. Those bullies feed off of your reactions to these things. Or you could just prove that you are better then them. Sorry to say but there is nothing you can do about it.
