I totally agree with that. It makes them feel better about themselves.People always have a reason for doing anything.It's like criminals saying they are sorry for the crime they have commited. They are only sorry they got caught!

Veering wildy back on topic, I was walking across my neighborhood in my Big Black Boots on Monday (To make sure they're soft enough for gig wear) evening, and a lad aged about seven shouted from his garden, "Hey! Do them boots 'urt when you kick someone's face in?"
Whilst I was considering this question, I head a voice, (sounding uncannily like mine..) call back, "Why on God's Earth would *I* want to kick anyone's head in?"
He didn't reply.

Short trot later.. Across the park, I then had a group of late teenage lads in Rugby shirts shouting and following me, "Freak!", "Transsexual!", "Dirty Goff trannie!" for the next ten minutes, following me down the road.
Sorry lads, with a bum like mine, I could only be naturally female. :lol: I crossed over the road and blew them a collective kiss. Perhaps not the best idea, but I was in a very good mood.



I'm glad I'm not the only female to have been called a tranny. Though I took it as a compliment because most t-girls I know look fabulous! :D

I also had the 'can you kick someone's 'ead in with them?!' question about my New Rocks when I was at college. I'm obviously less passive then you because my answer was 'I don't know, shall I try on you?' Obviously not the best thing to say, but it got a stunned silence from the entire group that had stopped me. :lol:

BINGO!!!

Absolutely. And if you knew this person, you would know the very truth of what you've just said.

We used to be schoolfriends, you see. He waited until we were in our late twenties, to unleash his pent up frustrations which he'd been harbouring since adolescence.

Now works as a psychiatric nurse. Good that, eh? Tina knows his details, since she once served him in her library. He had no idea who he was being served by.

Well, heh... It's been keeping me awake for the last eleven years...

So yes. The bottom line is that I know it's been on his conscience and it's been in my memory. His move has eased my mind and so it has helped a lot. Who knows if it's eased his, or whether that shall require a further move from me...?

That's not going to happen though. Silence is golden.

I've had the sniggering and snide remarks, but nothing physical as of yet. I've had 'Eeeew Goff' shouted at me when shopping in town and been asked by several people if I'm a Devil worshipper. I've got off extremely lightly compared to many of you. The things that have happened to you are just terrible :(

I wonder sometimes if those who yell abuse/insults are intimidated by the fact we follow our own path and have the gonads to be who we want to be without giving a hoot what anyone else thinks. Then again, maybe they are just born idiots.

Found out this morning that my 13 year old nephew and his friend were jumped by a group of 5 lads yesterday. They were simply walking along the road and were jumped for looking 'Emo'. Luckily, they both have nothing more than a few scratches and bruises.

Sorry this is a bit late, but I haven't had the internet for a while.

Walking back from the cinema about three weeks ago with my flatmates I got n egg thrown at me. They were in a car as well. Cowards. I was not amused. It wrecked my pink fishnet gloves and I'm ridiculously vain anyway.

Tish.

That's not funny at all. But can you imagine how great it would be if you neatly caught the egg in your hand and said "Thanks lads! I've run out of eggs and I do love them for breakfast!" That would be sooooo good :D

That would have been amazing. If I could aim I would have been tempted to throw it back.

Actually, embarressing as it sounds, it really hurt. It hit the little bony bit of my wrist and smarted like hell as well as going all over me.

I once had something thrown at my head and it actually cut my face open. Turned out to be a Rich Tea biscuit =/

It is not the object thrown which counts in a projectile attack, so much as the speed and force with which is is thrown. It is said that a ham sandwich, falling from the top of the Empire State Building, could flatten a car. You could be blinded by a kit kat finger, if the conditions were right. The bottom line is that a projectile attack works out in law as intent to start affray and is therefore a criminal offence, whether it be a small, sharp stone or an egg. Throwing pickled beetroot at someone's clothing, for instance, could work out as a criminal damage.

D'ya reckon I could get them for criminal damage over £3.99 worth of gloves? As we were walking back there we saw loads of egg splattered all over Oxford Road so we weren't the only targets. I know it wasn't random at me though because it was accompanied by shouts of 'mosher'.

Do you still even get moshers? I think they've died out or morphed into emos or metallers.

No idea. Point is, it's your property. What lies underneath, is an arm that might be bruised, at any rate. If the gloves cost 50p, this is still unnaceptable.

(Just what is it about your face, that makes me feel protective towards you?) :/

Moshing has more to do with how you dance, than how you dress. No such thing as a mosher, outside of a mosh pit. Anyone can mosh. I think these days, some people must think it's some kind of fashion group.

I remember when I was in high school fans of nu-metal who were a couple of years older than me described themselves as 'moshers'. I just assumed that it was another youth subculture.

I've got big eyes. It makes me look like an anime character and gives the impression of being young and innocent (according to my ex).

Can't speak for all of Lancashire.. But in Preston, Greater Manchester, Aston-I-M, Wigan and St. Helens "Mosher" has completely moved away from the dancing and become a very lazy local term for people you'd expect to find at a late-teenage rock night, or just an ignorant term.
Same with "Sweddys"/"Shwetties" (Builder friend of mine says that spawns from decades back, gradually removed from "Sweaties", when folks DID go out and mosh/dance all night and come out soaking, rather than stand around drinking/moping. He was confused why nobody my age realised that)
It mainly refers to anyone who likes a bit of black clothing, and sometimes (Not aiming this at you OE!) look a bit unkempt.

The town I grew up in didn't treat either as aggressive terms. Just how "Scouser" is a description, and needs other words to make it's use hateful. :(
Seems things twist.

Anyway, I came in here to say I got some interestingly stupid abuse this evening. :roll:

I was stood at the side of the road, waiting to cross and talking to my father on my phone. A builders van slowed down, and one of the occupants leaned out, leered close at me, and said, "Allo! Heil Hitler!" and drove off.

I was wearing a loose velvet blazer to cover my tight black armless shirt, over a finger length mesh shirt. That and black velvet chord trousers. I wasn't aware Nazis enjoyed this kind of Aesthetic, else I'd probably have paid even more attention in History lessons.

Puzzling it over briefly with Gangrel, I figure it was my knee high buckle boots. Why the Hell can't people just mind their own business?
