In A World Where Everyone Is Judged By How They LookCategory: (general)

In a world where you're only in the IN crowd if you're pretty,
where you get dirty looks if your clothes are Hollister or Abercrombie,
where you are outcasted for things that were never your fault..

I have a birthmark on my left cheek, and it's extremely noticeable. (sp?!)
I see girls with perfectly straightened hair, wearing the latest style give me the,
"wow, what a freak, I'm glad I'm not her" look.
Honestly, they look at me as if I chose to have an ugly birthmark on my cheek! I have
no issues with my birthmark, if they do, it's their problem. It just hurts to be
excluded for such a dumb reason.

I remember when I was little, I would cry because of the looks I would receive from
complete strangers.
My mom says that when I'm old enough, and have enough money, I can have surgery to
get my birthmark removed.  I want to, for the sake of being "normal", but  my
conscience is always bugging me, and making me ask myself, "Am I THAT shallow?" 

I'd walk down to the corner store, and passing people would stare, or whisper to
their buddy. I want to be able to walk up and down the streets and not have anyone
whisper, "Ew" or "Gross."

Also, weight issues. If someone is overweight, does that mean that they're a bad
person? A lot of overweght people are the best people I know. They have an amazing
sense of humor, they're honest, nice overall.

I don't get why everyone is so obsessed with how they look, how others look, what's
cool, what's not. It makes me want to scream, everytime I, or someone else is
criticized for how they look.

People are constantly judging others before they even know them! What is wrong with
today's youth?!

You sshouldn't care what people think. Look at it this way everybodys
talking about You. You have all the attention. I may not have a
noticable birthmark but I stand out. I live in a county wear everybody
is a super christian and doesn't wear a lot of black. I wear tripp
pants with chains and skulls dark eye makeup band t-shirts and
listening to really dark music. Yea people talk shit about Me some but
hey at least there saying something about Me. besides next time
someone calls you ugly just say dont blame me blame god. You should
like your uniqueness. I would if I was you. Your just different thats
what makes you special.

I'd just tell 'em losers to take a picture already xD
Seriously, I get those stares all the time from other 'annorexic' thin
girls,
just 'cause I have a big ass. Well, at least I have one ;P
Just think of it like this; "I'm unique, and I have something they
don't have."
I have a big ass, yes, and with it comes good and bad qualities.
Everyone has a feature like that, so I don't think you should worry
much.
But if you really don't like it, go ahead and take it off. Remember,
it's your free will.

Aww, Niki, I didn't know that still happened with your birthmark!
It's okay though. Don't get surgery, that's stupid. Your birthmark
makes you, you! 
Anyway, i know what you mean. People always say stuff like 'Where'd
you get that? Hollister?' And, if you say no, they give you a dirty
look! It's soooo dumb. Kirsten's kinda like that!

Thanks. (:
And yeah, I know, not all people who wear name brands are evil. 
Just I hate when you're looked down upon if you DON'T have name
brands.

C'mon Niki, you're stronger than that!  Everybody's telling me to
rebreak my collarbone because of the bump!  My mom even says I should,
but that's only because she thinks I won't like it when I'm twenty. 
(Hey, she may be right, but I doubt it!)  But I love my bump because
it makes me unique!  It's actually starting to go down a bit now, and
I hate that!  
I know that when people make fun of me for being an activist in so
many categories that they are just being stupid.  I know that I am
100% RIGHT about all of those things and I know that what other people
say is just a useless hunk of B.S.!  I am special because I am
different, and so are you!
Cheer up!  From, Emsee!
