It’s entirely possible that everyone in this group of friends hates me now. I just left the group conversation because of the implication that I was over-reacting to the use of the word redneck. It’s not like they’d know what that feels like. They’re not from a southern state, or the US at all. I’m both, and I just constantly feel like I’m being judged. Like people think I’m stupid because I’m American, or stupid because of where I’m from. And I shouldn’t have to put up with that from my friends, and if they can’t just accept that it makes me feel uncomfortable then that’s their fucking problem and not mine.
It’s a good thing I got this tattoo when and where I did. I might start cutting myself otherwise. And don’t tell me I can just do it elsewhere on my body - that’s my spot, my place, why I had it done there.
