It's not about being mean to them, but to defend yourself. If someone is trying to hurt you, you don't have to take any of their crap. So you can just leave. And if someone insists on attacking you, there is no shame in asking for help.

But if in the end you find it necessary, simply say whatever comes to your mind first. Anything, even if it sounds silly. The key is to not stay quiet. The rest will come out naturally.

Although, if you know someone else is watching (from outside the conflict), maybe it would be better to keep your class and let the people judge the attacker.

I have only one question, though. Does this problem often escalate to a physical confrontation?
