I think it's fine that you should say fight back...it doesn't have anything to do with your "position"
As far as fighting 'em back, I wouldn't do that! They're older than you and stronger than you. I mean, I got picked on by the guys in my weight training class, and I was
a pushover. Now I don't stand for that crap, and I think it's good to cuss them out because they're little pricks.
Although this is another case because they're phsyically harming you.

Telling the authorities is not 'tattling', it's self protective. And they will stop it.
I completely agree with this - it isn't tattling at all. You'd get the most out of telling someone about this, whether it's your parents, a teacher, or the authorities.
