I'm pretty sure a lot of them are going to be common with certain types.
This thread is about bitching with your fellow members about insults we've all probably faced.
- What are some of these insults you've been faced with, as a child, or a grown adult?
- Who has tried to insult you?
Well, being NT seemed to have an inclination for being name-called/insulted. (from what I noticed on this sector of the forum)
As a Child:
"Weird/Freak"- by my siblings-- stayed to myself, created my own world, didn't play with them much; and I've always been the reasonable one.
"Wild Child"- my parents-- also because they had a hard time getting me to do things I didn't want to do, and I would throw little fits. Ironically, I never did anything really "wild" when I was a kid....
"Mentally unstable"- my teachers: because I refused to do things she wanted me to do in class. I thought they were a waste of my and the classes time.
As an Adult:
Just this week alone, I've been called a,
"cold bitch"--by a good friend: because I refuse to get jealous over mundane things.
"mentally ill" - my awesome mother: because I disagree with her view point..
"emotionally dead"- also by dear mommy: Sad stories just don't make me sad when the person was not using their common sense.
" a Man"-by my dad( this one made me lol): apparently, I share qualities only a MAN would have, like being out-spoken, sticking to my opinion, being objective and decisive. The list goes on...
Odd thing is, they don't annoy me, or have any affect on me. It does get frustrating after a while, when I'm trying to have a conversation with someone, and they think I'm too objective; believing insults are the way to get me to show some sort of emotional reaction, or changing my mind by talking me down...
As a child , it did often hurt me when I was being treated differently than other kids, I was more emotional, and easily expressed my "feelings" towards things. The insults and the way I was treated made me feel like it was "wrong" to be the way I was, and that I was in fact, a freak; but in fact, I was Right.
