I was made fun of and snubbed a great deal as a kid for being different than my classmates. It hurt a great deal. Sometimes, even now, I get it, if I post on certain other forums online, and other posters either don't like my style of posting, or what I have to say. Unfortunately, people who are nasty, sneaky and catty, with a tendency to mock other people's differences, are often like that as adults. I don't go out of my way to understand people who're like that, because it's not worth even trying to understand them. Their attitudes and behaviors almost always come around to bite them in the ass, and well they should.

One summer, many years ago, while I was in college, I worked at a sweater warehouse that was near a tough white working-class Boston neighborhood. There were a number of college and high school students there beside myself, and many of the guys who worked at that warehouse all year around to support themselves and their families used to tease us somewhat. We were all able to either tease them back a little, or laugh it off.

Later that summer, however, a young man who was a Senior at UMass/Boston, also came to work at the same warehouse. Because he was clearly different than everybody else due to serious problems of some sort or other, the same guys tended to tease him and make fun of him, unmercifully, and in a much crueler fashion. Unfortunately, the young man who was the victim of this constant cruel baiting, despite a couple of the women telling the guys not to tease him, didn't seem aware that the guys were mocking him, and his behavior was generally bizarre, so the teasing that was meted out to this young man had a much nastier edge. There was no excuse for it, even though the guys who made fun of him were uneducated, unskilled and therefore insecure.

On thinking back on all that, I felt sorry for the young man because he had problems (don't know what kind of problems.), and because he eventually got fired afterwards. I also wonder what the people who recommended that this young man come to work at this warehouse were thinking, seeing that this was clearly not a good environment for him.

There are some people that feel justified in that behavior because in the past others treated them like that. The up side is that some of these people can be just the opposite and treat others with kindness.

Some times people refuse to take responsibility for their actions so when others speak of their actions they blame the someone else for making fun rather than responsibility . Yet another was to shift blame away
