Should I tolerate verbal abuse from my friends? It goes beyond the usual "omg dude, you're soo dumb..haha" to things such as them making fun of my body, calling me stupid for not knowing how to fix a computer problem, calling me a spoiled brat because my dad bought me an expensive laptop for college, calling me a moron for not knowing certain things about sex because I'm a virgin...etc.|
Are there any comebacks I should say, because its really getting on my nerves. I'm pretty sure they aren't kidding when they say these things, and we don't really joke around like this. I'm especially tired of them putting down my body because I'm really self-conscience about it. I don't want to get rid of my friends, they're the only few ones I have.
And how do I know when they're crossing the line between normal joking around that friends do, and purposely doing it to make themselves feel better about themselves?
EDIT: This usually happens when I get new things, like a new video-game they wanted..etc. Its basically a jealously issue I think. It also happens when my friend is around me (i used to be heavier than she was by at least 35 pounds, and then I lost the weight and now she's heavier than I am) and I wear shorts or a tank top or something mildly revealing.
I'm not sure how to confront them at all about this, I just know I'm getting sick and tired of being treated like garbage.
