    I am a person of the gothic persuasion.

    What does that mean. It means that I always wear black. I love the night time. And I am fond of horror films. My favorite supernatural creature is the vampire. People often judge me by my exterior appearance. A person all decked out on black wearing a shiny necklace or some sort...

    I get judged by my facial features.

    I have a big nose and small eyes and people see that as the ugliest thing they have ever seen. Literally people have said that and avoid me.

    I've recently gone on a crazily strict diet in the hope of helping my son. Long story on that. But a side effect is that I've lost weight. I feel so much better. And I no longer enjoy eating all the stuff I was addicted to: sugar mainly. I now like healthy food. But I'm pretty...

    Usually its not a huge deal

    for me. The way i dress is just who i am. Its how i grew up, lately though with my new job i find a lot of people turning there backs on me like I'm a threat. Still waters run deep. I don't let it show on the surface. But below it does stir a bit.

    I cut my hair boy-short

    and am a tomboy, so people have either mistaken me for a boy or thought I was a lesbian (though in that case they got me confused with an actual lesbian at school who also dressed tomboyish)

    People who don't know me or just know me rarely try to know me. I don't put a smile on my face all the time, thus people think I am angry or something. But, I just don't show any feelings on my face, and it scares people away. Maybe I should smile more? But that's jut so not me...

    Most judges I get are those thinking my

    appearance makes me a troublemaker, murderer, or freak. Though I'm a 6'3 man with loads of tats, scars, and a long Mohawk, I'm honestly just the most mild person you'll ever meet. I'm too timid and quiet to ever be anything people assume me to be.

    I Do

    We all still live in a world that judges on looks. It is a shame, but it is what it is. I have a deep past of being called ugly, and it is hard to see myself as anything else. I accept who I am, but in no way do I think I am good looking.
