    You are plainly a person of delightful sensitivity with much to offer the world.

    Victor.
    I wholeheartedly agree.

    Ah, I wasn't hated because I was quiet. I was hated because I was smart, funny and a little too enthusiastic about certain subjects, such as social sciences and well, science, and english. I was one of the weird art kids too. Lets face it I was weird. Oh, and maybe because I was this weird combination of really mature and immature...I loved ninja turtles and could tell every one the basic principle of splicing DNA at 13. I was so disappointed when I went to high school. I imagined in my head it would be a bit Dawson creek like (okay, it was a bit before, that show was on, but it's the best comparison.)
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    to be honest i think kids' hatred has little to do with specific traits and more to do with them needing to find something to fixate upon as "weird", something that separates others from themselves - whether that be introversion, intelligence, looks, behavior, or interests.

    i suspect it has something to do with children learning to be social and learning the ropes of "you are part of my herd" and "you are a danger to my herd", and therefore attributes that they find strange and alien in others become targets.

    I can see this. It is much easier to rally the majority of people around the banner of hatred than love.
