When you walk into the room and notice the blonde girl with the weird earings in her two holes and the glasses she wears and the hoodie she has on to hide her figure, what do you think of her? Is she nice? Is she weird? Will she give me some sort of disease that can't be cured? When you walk into the room the blonde girl you see is me. The one people harrass because they know they can get away with it and the one who is very quiet all the while she's screaming how much she hates people because it's the same in her high school.
The first look I recieve every year is the one of weirdness. No, I think your cool. None. People who try to be unique see this on a daily basis. It's the stereotypes of high school we all go through. The girl who wears all black must be in some cult when all she loves to do is read gothic literature. The jock on the basket ball team who is actually smarter than you think. The guy you know who's parents are going through a separation means he's going to be the one who shoots up the school. Those are the stereotypes I hate seeing.
It doesn't matter if you read a lot, your classmates tend to ignore you because your a little weird. Every teenager feels weird and akward and when we try to feel more normal by adding piercings, dressing the way we feel comfortable, dying our hair a color that others see as freakish we get labeled.
I'm bisexual and I have a lot of gay friends and when I go to into a book store I try to find a book that catches my attention. Does it have to be straight? No, but it doesn't hurt. Does it have any gay characters in it? I'd like to assume so till I can get into the novel.
These are the words of the teenage freak and I think its time things change. How about you?
