What makes someone a geek? What makes someone a goth/skater/whateverthehelltheycallthatp
Now, getting ready for high school, matters have changed. No longer am I a scrawny kid. And yet, I still get flak occasionally. I kind of have this idea about labels; im just wondering if anyone out there agrees.
I think labels are created by the "upper" class, and they do so in a fashion to place themsleves in a more favorable position than those they despise. Hence, they call themselves preps and jocks and group those who they feel are "lower" than them in labels they can use against them (like 'nerd' or 'geek'). Eventually, these kids who are torment get this idea they are indeed a lower life form.
If that makes any sense at all.
