I go to a small school in Tennessee. Where camo and confederate flags are still popular. So, when I showed up to school dressed in skinny jeans and a hoodie I got some hate. Initially, I took it personally and started to try and fit in. Never do that! However, I soon realized that people called me a faggot or a queer because they were intimidated. I was different and they didn't know how to react. I'll leave you with this, hold your head high when you are insulted because you know that YOU intimidate them and the only way they can react is with harsh words.
