it gets better (or so they tell me)

Today, in the hallway, me and my friend Nick skipped our lunch period to bullshit about manwhores and sluts and cocky bitches. He has this really high pitched laugh, Nick, and he may have had sparkly nail polish on his pinky nail. Whatever. It doesn't matter.

We were sitting, and these three juniors were in the process of walking past us. One, I knew, had dated my good friend for a short time. Another had laughed with me about how stupid our webpage design teacher was. The other had one of those generic faces, the type you froget five minutes after you see it. Again, this doesn't matter.

One of them, the one who had dated my friend, leaned over and in the most malicious, cartoonishly evil voice I had ever heard, barked a certain three letter word in Nick's face.

And Nick's face just sucked. It was on of those expressions that you want to draw, take a picture of, because it's so sad and stricken you know a person could only make it once in their life. But maybe I'm exaggerating. Isn't everything exaggerated when you're a teenager? Whatever thrice. I went up to the kid and slapped him and I may or may not get in trouble for it, serious trouble, but I don't care because if anyone deserved to be hit it was that piece of shit.

What a horrible person. They need to get real lives.

What a complete asshole. Good for you for slapping him.

That's awful. Really awful. And its a testament to the fact that we have to object, firmly, every time someone trots out that kind of bigotry.

Here's the way it gets better: after high school (for most of us, but sadly, not all) you get a lot more choice about who you let into your lives. There is less compulsory social proximity with people who gain in self-worth by terrorizing others. Nick sounds totally awesome, and eventually he will be able to insulate himself from all the foundationless hate out there with a thick cloud of YOU and all the other people who actually care who he is as a person.

Or that's the hope, I guess.
