At about 12 years old, I remember people calling others wierd, and every time, that person being called wierd was not as wierd as me.

Did you view yourself as being wierd or was that other people's perception of you?
What may come across as being wierd to me may not be wierd to somebody else.
I should think that at twelve years of age wierdness can and does take many forms, as at any other age. Can wierdness be classified anyway? at the end of the day what is acceptable as being the norm?

I've always thought of myself and my family (parents etc, not hubby & kids) as weird, ever since I was a little kid. Always been 'different'.

I dont mind being wierd I have meet many "normal" people, most are nutters in there own way.:cool:

I find it is not what I am that causes the probs, its others inablity to accept others are differnt, and insisting they are right, but if you ask them to justify themselfs they have nothing, and get agressive, they think I am the one with the prob, or are they in denial :confused:

After much consideration I came to the conclution "sod 'em" :clap:
