    What are some things that get you **** from people, I get a lot of **** from people at my school because:

    -I like My Chemical Romance and The Killers.
    -I have mild acne, but I refuse to take medication because I don't want to waste money for something normal.
    -I have pale skin, and refuse to use tanning beds like other kids in my grade.
    -I am kinda on the skinny side, 6 foot, 160 pounds.
    -I don't wear Hollister, Aeropostale, or American Eagle, people still think I dress very nice, but they wonder why the hell I don't just go to those stores.

    What do you do or like that have people kinda tease you about?

    Ohh... I got many things that people give me **** for. A couple I share with the OP.

    - My Chemical Romance and Panic at the Disco are my favorite bands.
    - I greatly dislike Hollister, Aeropostale, and American Eagle.
    - I'm a guy that wears eyeliner.
    - I'm probably the skinniest guy at my school (116lbs / 16 years old / 5" 8.5")
    - I'm in GSA.
    - My style of clothing is usually... dark or as some kids would say, "emo."
    - I'm a hardcore Apple fanboy and talk about Apple way too much.

    Yeah, I don't try to, I just dress how I want to. Often people ask me why I wear eyeliner and why I dress the way I do.
    My response is, "because I can and it's the way I want to looks."
    I've given up one trying to be "cool."
    Nobody will ever be cool.

    EDIT:I also have some acne but people don't really give me **** about it, especially since it used to be a lot worse.

    Nope, because people I hang with are car enthusiasts and can recognize that GM has improved a lot. :p

    Not amazingly fond of MCR, but Panic's 2nd album was GREAT. I HATE the first one, but LOVE the 2nd, very modern Beatle-esque.

    Alright, so you claim that you don't want to be cool, yet you listen to mainstream music?

    Musical tastes is proportional to coolness???

    Tell me where I fall with these on my ipod:

    Coheed & Cambria
    Billy joel
    Elton John
    Thin lizzy
    The beatles
    BB king
    Blink 182
    Boston
    The Byrds
    Fiest
    Panic at the Disco
    Ray Charles
    System of a down
    Vanessa calton - big fan


    No offense, but the very idea that you were hinting at is extremely juvenile.

    i wouldn't necessarily say i get **** for these, but they are often brought up as "issues" or people asking "why"

    ears stretched to 3/4ths
    various tattoos
    labret piercing
    occasional eyeliner
    somewhat feminine male

    among other things. for me, they're all just a part of who i am.

    I am not saying that by listening to mainstream music you are cool. I'm just wondering why you would put yourself through the hell of listening to MCR and Panic at the Disco if you aren't trying to share something in common with others. They are a pain in the ass to listen to.

    Again, extremly juvenile. I assume you listen to some sort of "non mainstream" music?

    You realize people have different tastes right?

    Probably being tall and skinny, I got alot of it at work, people telling me I needed to eat more, yeah, because I definitely haven't tried that before...

    That and having odd tastes in music, I tend to like the stuff that no-one else I know likes. For example: I've yet to find someone who likes Kula Shaker, hell, anyone who's even heard of Kula Shaker to be honest... My flat is filled with people that like RnB, and my music is mostly deemed crap, because it doesn't have a "beat", so the drums are just there for aesthetics?
