I can say I agree with this.
There is a bit of a balance in dealing with a bully, I've been bullied myself especially in elementary and middle school. But holding your head down, and keeping quiet is definitely not going to help your situation. Bullies normally seem to go for the path of least resistance aka going for the easiest prey who they feel will not really fight back, and give them the reactions they want such as fear.
At the same time though I'm not nearly saying that violence or being equally aggressive will help either. In my opinion the worse thing you can do is just sit there and take it hoping it will stop.
