Just under a year ago I attended a christian private school for a bit. It was like something from 7th heaven. All the kids talked about how great the
school was and how god was the greatest. Now i am christian so I wasnt against them but they were pretty annoying. They seemed like clones. I felt
they were being brainwashed from the beginning. They were all goody goodies. They had been going to this school for awhile and they were like mentally
stuck in there. They knew nothing about the "real" outside world. I despised them so much.
Anyway, I came in the middle of the year. At that time I was into the darker side of life. Gothic, you could say, with a little twist. I got moved
there because school issues and other problems. I came in to my first class the first day and I knew already this was going to be tough. Of course I
was dressed in all black, with converse. From then on the teachers discriminated me. The principal was the worst of all, he was the head pastor too.
He looked at me like I was stupid and worthless, becuase the way I dressed and I knew it. Every time we had bible class and they asked if anyone wasnt
"saved" they always looked into my eyes. They were absolutely stunned when I told them I WAS saved. I got in trouble for having the Sex Pistols on
my binder, they told me they promoted "cutting your wrists".
I was very good. I was almost top student with my grades, I said yes m'am and yes sir to all teachers. I was very obediant becuase I didnt want them
to perceive me how they had been doing. I thought they shouldnt judge me for my choice of dress. I was good all up into the ending months. I got fed
up with them, especially the head pastor/principal. I had streaked my hair red and spiked it in front of my face. I was sent to the bathroom to change
it cause they said I looked like the devil. I was going for that look at all, ha. I made a disturbance in the class, when I said I didnt want to work
one day. Since it was a small school, I was the talk of the whole school. They sent me to a room where I was confined in what looked like their
storage room. I was talked to and the principal had wanted to spank me. psh. He didnt but I know for sure if he did he would've had something coming
to him, aka "where the sun dont shine". Anyway they didnt do it and when my parents found out they got me out of the school ASAP.
What I was wondering is, has anyone ever encountered something like this or known anyone who has encountered this kind of situation where they were
discriminated in a religious school?
