I'm not sure anyone has ever hated me, just strongly disliked me enough to make my life miserable.

So some people could dislike you to the point that they "hate" you, ... but for NO reason?

That seems strange and impossible to me... or it would be crazy people making judgement based on nothing.

But actually, it is possible and even widespread: racism, it is hating people you don't even know.

Thank you, that means a lot to me. :)

Heck, you're better than me. Took me a while to realize auntblabby was being nice to me. And, I did the cowardly thing and PM'd him. Shoulda done it here....just took so long to understand it.

<---doofy day here.....

Don't say that, I am no better than anyone else.

my brother aspie, a better response would have been "thank you" :)

I would say that my childhood was the same with this one difference. It's based on hindsight:

Maybe I didn't mean any offense, but I may have given offense. That whole "Little Professor", or "Aloof", or "Constantly correcting things", or not 'getting the rhythms or knowing when to talk' and stepping all over other people's words in conversation.

So, maybe, just mayyyybe, I did cause those problems.

Maybe, just mayyyybe I'm the one who DID come off controlling because all I was trying to do was make sense of a crazy world that makes no sense to me. i.e. All those crazy things like ritual and schedules and planning things and all that sort of stuff that's necessary in my life.

the only thing that saved me from more bullying in school, was my unpredictable reactions.

I learned to be fast and glib by listening to comedy albums at the time.

George Carlin, Gabe Kaplan were two primary influences. Carlin was good for the "If you can't bedazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit." type of response.

I went one of two ways with that. I either got the crap kicked out of me because I was being the as*hole, or, if not, I really laid into them. Got pulled off more than one kid.

Comedy hurt less and made me seem eccentric instead of something else that got beat up on. I mean, even if you won, it hurt like hell on the hands......or the behind in those days. Schools didn't have those qualms back then.

Of course. But, I learned to ignore them. This helped me to ignore some of the more publicized disagreements that some (newspapers and legislators) had with me. I won, they lost. That is all that mattered.

being a head taller and older than my classmates [I think I was held back in kindergarten] also helped, but verbally I was like a deer in the headlights, all tongue-tied.

I get that way a lot when I have to answer things for real. But, in a situation like in school, it worked. I think it was the non-sequitor things that got them.

I was small for my age. Then in 7th grade I shot up to 5'7" and they thought I was going to be a giant. But, then all of a sudden, a year later, they all caught up and passed me and I was back to being slightly less than average size.

You ever feel like when you win, it still feels like a loss?

Oh yea, probably more than I know since I just know the dicks that made it public.

I had a couple teachers that took a special pleasure in tormenting me and would look to throw me out of their class for any reason. Now I returned all the hate I got in turn so it went tit for tat.

Nowadays I don't know, it's so hard to read some people that you just make assumptions.
