Let me give you a lesson. When you call someone weird you are bullying someone. What makes me a better person than you are, is that I recognize that and you do not.
Do you know what “weird” means? The Merriam Webster defines it as “of strange or extraordinary character,” or ”
of, relating to, or caused by witchcraft or the supernatural .” The origin of the word “weird” is Shakespearean in nature. When used as a noun it means “fate, destiny” or “soothsayer.” However those of you calling me “weird” are not using the term correctly. It is why I am different than you, because I am smarter than you.
I mean Eric Dane called me weird, but than he also did not like people who read classical literature and I am fairly certain he thought some gossip he heard about me, which was not true, was true because he judged me on externals. His actions were discriminatory. I did not do anything wrong on his set. He is just your typical male bully.
One URBAN definition of “weird” pretty much fits the way people are using it in regards to me. The urban definitions include people who like to make people laugh, to people not afraid to be themselves. I personally thinks that one fits me. I like to use my imagination and be creative. I like to be an actor. To the people who lack the courage to be different, you are cowards and show it every time you call me “weird.” Weird also covers something or someone “unique, strange, awesome, crazy, or out of the ordinary.” However it is the final definition that really rings true and this is a quote:
Some people use this word to bully, or hurt somebody’s feelings in a negative way. I take it a different way, I say, “weird is different. different is unique, and unique is amazing.’ Overall, weird is unique in so many ways.
According to Entrepreneur, “25 Bad Words That Make Other People Feel Inferior” is weird. Do you know what a person is who likes to make other people feel inferior? It is basically VERBAL ABUSE. Do you know what you are doing when you verbally abuse someone repeatedly? You are potentially causing a person to be mentally ill. Verbal abuse can lead to PTSD.
Studies show that experiencing verbal abuse can contribute to the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in the same way surviving physical or sexual abuse can. Verbal abuse also has a high chance of contributing to depression, anxiety, and problems sleeping and eating. Verbal abuse and physical abuse often go hand-in-hand, meaning that abusers will often exert their efforts to harm, control, and manipulate their partners through multiple channels. Even on its own, verbal abuse is extremely serious and can have long-term effects.
People often talk about abuse and yet seem to not even realize that not all abuse exists in a physical form and the non physical kind can last far longer in effect than a blow of the fist. Labeling be weird or crazy is a falsehood.
I am the kind of person who gets good grades in school. I do not FAIL in school. I would not be failing in acting if not for the shallow external qualifications those of you who are calling me weird put on what is an actor. You are at fault. I am not bad at acting at all. I am also not into women and I have been sick. I have been abused and almost raped and lied about. I do not like bullying. I am against bigotry and hate, and yet you call me weird. I wish my weirdness was the NORM. Maybe we would have fewer people suffering from abuse. I am not a hater despite the fact that people who are jealous seem to want to make me out to be. I think actually Twitter is being used as a tool to make me look bad. What it is doing is driving me to pain, but then people can be evil when they feel threatened. I do not intend to be a threat to anyone. If you see me as one, then think a minute, why? I think the problem is you, and your own insecurities. I am a nice girl who does not want to hurt anyone but you need to hurt me. I hope people realize and see the real you.
