Call yourself a freak. I wount. No one is normal, but some are a bit less normal than others. and with some it shows and others like to show there different.From the movie Freaks: I still have a picture in my head of the black guy with no arms or legs but with a knive in his mouth looking though.Great! I actually once wrote a story about an independent belly who after a performance of a balletdancing bird could not applaud because of having no hands.Okay maybe I'm a little freakish to. I agree about what your saying about you deciding to accept someone. bonna notte!

ya, i know where you are coming from Asia. I was "labeled" a freak back in school, but everyone knew of me, they just didnt know me! But thats ok, it was just a label, i was unhappy, i've let people down , vice versa, but smoking weed, and partying makes me feel normal when i take a trip to soothe the pain... freaks accept people for how and who we are, and that my friend is what life should be all about.....

freaks demand attention, i think it fits you well. I wasn't labeled a freak, i don't think, but i didn't label freaks, they labeled themselves and we were friends. simple.

I've been called that since I was very young, maybe seven or eight years old. Personally, I don't think that I live up to that title, but I'd much rather be a freak than be like everyone else.
