a few points I would like to point out in my rant.....
we also had a women wander into our little neck of the woods. she wasn't quite mentally there, had just lost her cat, and was trying to talk to
everyone who would talk to her into giving her theirs.
she wasn't pretty, she just didn't fit in, and well, no one chased her out of the village. although many of us went to searching out and chasing
down our cats!!
the man that was chased out, well, I really don't know that much about him. but there didn't seem to be anything that would set him out from anyone
as far as the kids that were in my house that day. well, sorry, wouldn't consider my kids ugly, nor any of the other ones that were in there.
matter of fact, a few were part of the in crowd a few weeks before this happened. I don't know if they did something that ticked the group off, or
maybe mom finally put her foot down, but well...the only thing that set these kids apart from the rest was that they just weren't responding to the
mob mentality....individual free thinkers, not prone to be easily led...
I imagine eventually after a long time of being harassed by this mob, well, some might just decide to play alone just for the peace. others, like my
kids, would just opt to not associate with the outside world....that antisocialism that you speak of.....and well, a few brave souls would eventually
decide to kick some arse themselves, and thus win the priveledge of being left alone!
but, no where in the midst of all this do I see where appearance played any significant role.
I don't buy the study. think it's a bunch of bs myself.
