    Never mind youngsters getting bullied, I get bullied and I ain't no spring chicken!

    Mind you, those doing the insulting don't know my age. It struck me that there are truly a lot of messed up and sad people in this world. Sometimes I give as good as I get, other times I just ignore.

    My favourites are those who think it's clever to 'insult' folk by calling them Gay, Faggot etc - that's an insult? Like - **** off. If they try and target me I just ask them where they'd like to meet for a rude time :D That usually puts them off.
