People aren't just looking to report one another, they need "something to talk about," especially in small towns. They need to get a life, but at
the same time someone wearing pentagrams and the like shouldn't be stirring up trouble.
I'm sure those people who judged you would rather think of somone in that situation as a thumb-waving slut than a Satanist. People fear Satanism, and
that fear has been used throughout history to gain power and influence. After a while it gets old and people want to shut it down before yet another
Satanist makes a backroom deal.
Oh yeah, I agree... talking even takes attention away from their own behaviors so they can wear their little halos while being an average unruly
teenager... but I don't want to have to go through all the examples of why one would be so nosey because I have encountered it a lot.
As for stirring up trouble, when i was younger- i was never disruptive. I was always quiet, always in the back, never making trouble. there comes a
time when energies start building up and no one can expect a misunderstood child who hasn't really been guided to continue being an angel when they
are bursting with thoughts, ideas and energies that no one around them knows what to do with.
i don't care what they thought of me as... that was the whole point i wanted to get across because I saw many of them as hypocrites and I'm too
honest, but i'm not going to lay blame on myself for being honest.
You can say they would have rather thought of me as a slut and in some instances you might be correct but you should also know about the history in my
hometown and that one of my best friends was put in prison for a so called "satanic ritual slaying"... that's what they put on the head lines of
the newspaper and at 15, I had to testify. It wasn't a satanic ritual and even didn't even fire the first shot, but you can't tell people that who
are only interested in witch hunting. does that sound like people who just wanted to call anyone from our group of friends "sluts"? the police even
said they intended to bust up our group by getting a conviction out of that case and we never even did anything...we basically just sat around and got
high and listened to music... but we dressed funny and we didn't know that was a crime.
Don't be so sure you know the intentions of everyone in my hometown.... you can never be "sure"... like you say when you weren't there to see some
of this crap.
What it boiled down to is that they were afraid of what we might one day do and they didn't like the fact that some of us were younger than the older
kids they hung around... and some of those of those older kids had previous run ins with people of authority through no fault of their own (learning
secrets in foster homes) and they didn't like the way my friend looked, they thought he was too skinny, they thought he was sick and so they treated
him like disease and they used his weakness... an interest in metal and wicca against him.
Anyway... they used all this stuff and exploited various symbols that my friend used and had on him as just another means to get a conviction. they
never believed it was a satanic ritual! That's just how they got their verdict. the whole thing was really retarded actually. The guy who fired the
first 5 shots is still walking around out there somewhere as far as I know. He served no time and had lawyers because his unemployed mom who had been
living in a two story house got him a good lawyer somehow. We knew him well but he wasn't our friend. we had been wanting our friend to stay away
from him but he kept buying him stuff and partying with him and his mom let them have full run of that house. The whole thing was a bunch of crap but
don't assume you know how lightly the people in my town take things and for what reasons. It's not just about a few kids wanting to call me a slut.
That is just an example how people let hate manifest because of their fears of the unknown.
