I'm in seventh, and I've known too many people to count that are homophobes, make fun if gays/bisexuals, and then there are the people that are actually mature and support gays.
In sixth, there were a lot of people who thought gays were weird and a few that supported gays.
And in fifth, everyone was using "faggot" all the time and making fun of gays and saying how wrong it was.

But in all three grades, there are still like ten people that giggle when the teacher mentions the word "homosexual". It's super annoying.

Honestly, if people are making fun of gays or giggling throughout the video, I'd ask them politely to shut their mouth.

Well, if the boy in our class who is an idiot speaks up, I will tell the teacher that he thinks he loves the video and wants to learn much more about it! ^__^

Have you seen the gay marriage thread? (*facepalm*)
We can't stop bickering about it.
There are homophobes within the KP community, and although they're the minority, their opinions seem a lot louder than ones of acceptance of homosexuality.
I'm not trying to be rude; I understand that people have different views about things. I'm just stating a fact. ._.

As for maturity, Max, you are far beyond that of a seventh grader. o_o In middle school, maturity seems to go backwards... I hope you have a better time in seventh and eighth grade than I did... o_O x_x

Sadly I need to keep coming up with more names to make myself feel validated because the ones that applied in the past do not, now that I learned how to crack down on the negatives, apply.
I have the same Sherlockian abilities, perhaps more intense, though (I do NOT mean that in any rude way, sorry if it sounds like it)... ever since my dad watched Young Sherlock Holmes or whatever that movie was called, I've been known in my family as Sherlock... I can pick up on very strange things (c'mon, do I need to go into detail? .___. Too... many... details...), for example, at a concert, while everyone else is looking at the light show on the stage, I'm looking at the lights reflecting off the roof, or in the theatre while everyone else is staring at the screen I'm the only one who thinks to check the audience. Plus a butt ton of other stuff that is too boring to ramble about. =_=
From the research I did about it, one of the defining characteristics of an HSP is emotional sensitivity, and apparently they're known as "indigo children" aka "the new kids on the block." They're, if one were to view it in a spiritual sense, the exact opposite of the "souls" of people who lived years ago, who had no problem brutally murdering each other over land or food and lived guiltless existences, unscathed emotionally by horrific living conditions and watching people dying around them (I'm talking Black Plague, etc). Apparently, these "souls" (in quotes because I personally am not sure about this and I know that these are not your beliefs, but this is how I came to understand the concept) are being replaced by a new generation of people who are sensitive, caring, righteous, etc. :P There's a lot of videos on it.
Based on the aforementioned qualities, I am certainly not an HSP. X'D DX
(Pardon the random self-analyzation here...)
I find that I do not have the same creativity that an HSP would have. Mine lingers more on the "insane" side, where I will be alone for up to fifteen hours working on something without breaks in a tiny room--and I'll go through bouts of mania and display very extremist personality traits, ie, I get up every morning at five a.m. to work on stuff.... ._. My creativity is not driven by the same things that drive "normal, healthy" creativity, I think... I drink more than ten cups on an average day of coffee simply for the caffeine rush... even without it I'll experience the weirdest thi--well, anyways...
I mean, calling myself mildly schizotypal would explain most of my mannerisms... but I feel like one of those "mastermind" Sims. Whereas a schizotypal person would fall short, I excell--namely, social cues, self-presentation, reading social situations, arithmetic, etc... I am extremely left-brained and extremely right-brained at the same time, and every day in Math and English I am freaked out by something... in English class I seem to reach deeper into things than anyone else (that I know of, at least) and during a quote test for Julius Caesar where we had to interpret the secret meaning of the quotes, I was the last one finished, scribbling out paragraphs of interpretation whereas everyone else wrote "Cassius is angry" or "Brutus is sad." And then one thing in math class has been nagging at me for a long time now... a selected group of students were put in a thinking-outside-the-box math contest and apparently I was able to answer the most questions of people I know of, missing only 1/75 out of two sections, and when we were doing a fun activity for visual thinkers (making shapes out of smaller shapes), I was getting the shapes right with ease while everyone else had difficulty getting just one or two. o_O I told my dad and he said that I just have a knack for visualization, visual thinking, spacial orientation, etc... yet meanwhile I am extremely logical and left-brained? Wut?
I am still waiting for an explanation for those hallucinations, though. I will never forget those...
As for personality types, I'm pretty sure I'm ISTP. :3 YAY LOGIC. 8^)

Finally a KidPubbian who isn't an INFP! /highfiveISTP
My Maths are pretty fine and I find it easy so far, since once you get it, you can be sure about your answer. But I'm pretty intuitive too, especially in English; ask me the answer for a grammatical question and I can answer you correctly, but ask me why, I'd be as clueless as the questioner.

Me too. I've also developed two 'crushes' on girls, though 'stalkerish obsessions' fit better.

My LS teacher keeps saying that he wouldn't worry much about us dating because my school's a girls' school (We're going through a textbook called Love and Sex and I really hope we get through it ASAP) and the whole class started laughing.

That's fine. Most of us don't judge, it's perfectly fine to like girls and guys.

The other day, my dad read this article about a newly recognized personality trait. Not a disorder, not an advantage. A personality trait. People who have it are called Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs). This means exactly what it sounds like--their nervous system tends to be more sensitive (meaning, more pain or more pleasure than most people feel), they're extremely emotional people, are effected by the emotions of the people around them, take great pleasure in sensory experiences (music, food, etc.), notice subtle things in their surroundings/life/situations (think like Sherlock Holmes, basically), and a whole bunch of other stuff.

And you know what?

It.
Makes.
SO.
MUCH.
SENSE!

From the reading my dad and I have done, we've come to realize that many people we know are HSPs. He and I both took a little test thing to give us a rough estimate of how likely that is for us. I checked 23 out of 27 of the boxes on the test, and only 14 checked boxes were required for a "yes, you're probably an HSP" answer.

All of the sudden, everything in my life that I never thought about and dismissed as a family quirk is making SENSE. O.o Why my migraines are triggered by flashes of bright light. Why I get so irritated after being in a large, upset crowd for too long. Why I go through mood swings that are strange even for a teenager. Why I can smell nearly as good as a hound dog, despite my constant stuffy nose. Why my advice to those who don't see value in life is always to try to enjoy having the five senses. ESPECIALLY why I love music and writing and reading so much--HSPs tend to be "unusually creative".

I'm not an introvert. I'm not bipolar. I'm an HSP. It has a NAME. There's a name for what I am. o__o And the statistics!!! :'D 15% to 20% of the people you meet is probably an HSP. That's about 1 in 5 people! And my recently developing social anxieties? Unfortunately, yes, that's real. It's apparently one of the effects of not being identified as an HSP early enough--the person will be misjudged by themselves and the people around them, thereby causing long-term damage such as chronic depression (eh, possibly, now I see it might just because I always seem to be around depressed people, thus making ME depressed), social anxieties (x_x yup, getting there), being severely anti-social, and a plethora of other things.

I just can't get over this. O.o

If anything I just said sparks your interest, or you think you can identify with it, you can take a self-test here: http://www.hsperson.com/pages/test.htm
REMEMBER, like the bottom of that page said, the results you may get are NOT final. It's more like an educated guess. NOT concrete proof.

I only got like 17.

I didn't do it... I just couldn't -.-

I know that she saw my cuts (:/) and she didn't say anything though...

But eventually I will - if I'm not such a chicken next time I see her :(

You should have asked her. It's better when there is a friend you trust there with you... If you can't do it face-to-face, just call her up and ask.
*hugs* And don't cut. Seriously. Don't.

Good, ask her then.
*confiscates anything that could be used to self-harm* Please. Everyday you want to cut, put a bead or something similar into a jug or pot. Once you reach 10, reward yourself, and set yourself other goals after.
