    We're all judged for something. I can't explain how I am different, I just know that I am. I feel ways that other people don't feel, and in a way we're all that way. But I'm sensitive and emotional in ways that other people can't understand. People in general don't like me...

    The Main Problem Is That No One Understands What I Am - Then

    EVERYBODY KNOWS. But they even almost always read what I say/ do WRONG - THEN THEY ALL KNOW THEY DO. I AM NOT LIKE ANY OF U, FUNNY UNETHICAL NON-HUMAN HUMANS! I AM NOT LIKE ANYTHING ANYBODY U KNOW OR CAN IMAGINE.

    The World Sees Those As Different As a Threat.

    Any time I have a different opinion then the general accepted ideas I always see how those judgments influence the attitudes of those around me.  Instead of wanting to discuss ideas or explore new ideas I am separated from the group and suffer a group attack.   I ...

    I'll Always Be Different. Not By Choice.

    I'm gay and I'm a Christian. The scientific community will always view me as a joke and disregard any insight I might have because I'm automatically labeled a moron. The religious community will always loathe me for being a filthy homosexual and will consider any viewpoint I ...

    Especially These Days

    Now that I'm not trying to camouflage myself as much as in the past, my mannerism and feelings show more readily. When I'm out, mostly at work or sometimes at social gatherings, many people look at me differently. I can see the quizzical look in their eye and some even a tilt in...

    Not Normal.

    I am judged harshly by my family and community at large. I am somewhat of a hermit, and have been for years due to having a fear of being in or around crowds. I am socially awkward around people in person, conversation skills lack horridly. My life revolves around being shut up...

    This Is Messed Up?

    I have lived in England for the last ten years, and I've learned that in school.... many people are very grumpy, goomy, straight faced and hate all forms of happiness. Thankfully I'm moving out of the country to the land of America, (where people are a hell of a lot friendlier...

    Why?

    Why is it that others judge who or what we are.  I am different because of my gender, sexuality, intelligence level, social and financial status, race, religion and cultural background.  I look at people for who they are..PEOPLE, HUMAN BEINGS!  So what if they are...
