So, it is now the second day back at school, and I've basically given up on going by Luna. Not only does basically nobody call me it, but I've gotten nothing but awkward stares for even asking to be called by another name. A few were even bold enough to say that they will not call me that name. As much as I don't want to present myself in a false light, and as much as I should be able to make such a request, it looks like that isn't possible. It is kinda a harsh reality, to realize that in today's world, simply wanting to be called the name that you want to be called is a reason for people to reverse a positive perspective of someone. I kinda find it funny trying to vocalize it. "Yeah that person is a lot of fun, we have the same interests, we've hung out on a few occasions, he helped me get a better grade on that test, and he seems to have a positive outlook on life, but he wants to be called something I don't agree with, so I shouldn't have to recognize him as a person." I'm really just astonished at how fragile we are. If people are so fragile that they cannot get along with people holding such a minor difference of opinion, maybe they are better off being lied to. Stupid, uncompromising, self-consumed, arrogant, egocentric assholes... Ok... Rant mode over.
