I mean, okay. In theory, I understand mob mentality and I understand why you would feel safer calling someone a faggot when they aren’t looking at you, but then being too scared to call them a faggot to your face. Yes, in theory, I understand this.
But in practice, I don’t get it at all. I mean, I don’t really know what kind of clever retort I would have had if those kids had decided to actually do what I asked and call me a faggot to my face. But still, me not being able to be clever would have felt better than them just hiding behind each others backs, too scared to call me a faggot to my face. I mean yea, maybe I would have used my ‘faggot-AIDS-blood’ pokemon move on them and infected them all in one fatal swoop, but I tend to save that for special occasions.
Today I queened out on some group of teen aged boys at the arcade as we were playing Dance Dance Revolution. It felt really, really good to shout at strangers, but now I am just tired. Ugh.
