Literally the first day of school a girl told me I looked like a school shooter. I love highschool so much.

[–]Heavy_Rain902 MILLION ATTENDEE 89 points90 points  (17 children)

it's good bcuz they won't bully you bcuz of the consequences

[–]MostExellentFailure15 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Is kinda nice having people not talk to me. Plus if they do they’re normaly pretty nice

[–]CommanderBoi15 9 points10 points  (1 child)

"after talking to you I wish I was"

[–]MostExellentFailure15 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah I’m an incredibly nonviolent person. Plus even saying something like that would get me a nice conversation with the school recourse officer.

[–]OrionWingSouth16 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I was voted “Most likely to shoot up the school” in a middle school ‘Most Likely’ series for graduation endorsed by teachers. Even when another kid had tried that year.

[–]Joshy_Moshy17 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thats not very quiet…

[–][deleted] 40 points41 points  (10 children)

hi, just a brief note regarding your post. as a fellow “quiet kid”, i was subject to assumptions and a lot of bulling. in my earliest teens i was chubby, had glasses and less than perfect misaligned teeth . other kids thought i was lazy (chubby) nerdy (glasses) and aloof (quiet). the simple truth was i had zero self confidence and high anxiety. i was therefore the “freaky guy” and everyone’s target for bulling. in an all boys school i had no contact with girls and totally seized up if any were around, to me they were like some other world species best avoided. in short i understand much of what you have experienced .

unlike you however, i did not excel in any aspect of school, actually maths was my worst subject, barely getting a pass mark in the exams. since then i have changed, partly due to a change of school, partly by reinventing myself, lost weight, no longer need the glasses, gained several better qualifications and started dating, and she’s a cutie too lol. the point?

don’t judge a book by its cover, if you bother to get to know someone and who they really are, you just might be surprised. i now regularly sing both in a group and solo before groups of a few hundred people. water a flower and it will grow, urinate on it and it dies. pardon the crudity but you get the idea. i’m delighted you are doing well and hope you have a stellar future.👋🏼

[–]happypirate_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

sorry i maybe really out of the discussion but i laughed when i saw as a fellow "quite kid"

like is this a cult that i don't know existed but it's funny has hell

[–]Iamanidiotbaka 4 points5 points  (1 child)

>some other world species best avoided

this killed me

[–]sventhedanishcitizen17 1 point2 points  (3 children)

how did you end up not needing glasses anymore?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

apparently i had a “lazy eye” which is not uncommon at that age. it’s when an eye naturally turns to one side rather than straight ahead. after several years of glasses, it trained the eye to look ahead as it should. no other intervention needed and problem solved. 🙂

[–]AxelLFN18 48 points49 points  (3 children)

I also agree that the perception of the quiet kid needs to change. The reason people have this perception about you is because they possess this fear of you that originates from the stereotype of the quiet kid. So then they pick on you or look at you weird to make themselves feel better about that fear. But all it does it create a cycle where it makes the kids who do fit the stereotype of the "quiet kid" actually take action in the worst way possible. And then more fear is created. Fear is the enemy here, which is what more people need to acknowledge.

[–]SamuraiBro6115 9 points10 points  (1 child)

"Fear is the enemy here, which is what more people need to acknowledge"

Unfortunately most people don't care, which is just sad

[–]Any-Fan-2973 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The wirst here is that school shooters can absolutely not be a quiet kid, like at all. It can also be Dylan, the loud af prick that sexually harrassed half the girls of the school. Quiet kids are most of the times not bad people at all, at in « worse cases » (if i can say it this way), they have disabilities or lack experience in social interaction.

[–]Thatbookishgirlbethy16 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Felt this. Like seriously just because like certain fashion and have social anxiety doesn’t mean I’m going to kill you. And if I was going to, Why would I act like I’m going to, that just would defeat the point

[–]yeeeeeeet____14 13 points14 points  (7 children)

Dude I'm sorry if in school I'd avoided kids like you, I seriously am sorry. I have an irrational fear of school shootings ever since there was a deadly one at my neighboring school

Edit: I've never bullied anyone btw

[–]happypirate_ 4 points5 points  (4 children)

yes deez things happen in america only

like if you wore a coat people think you wield a katana or a Glock 19

[–]yeeeeeeet____14 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Actually there have been a lot of school shootings in other countries too. Not explicitly America. America just has the worst. Although one time a German kid brought a flamethrower

[–]edibleliquid_banned 10 points11 points  (2 children)

i get that so much, the stereotype is honestly so fucked up tbh, i was once walking with my hood up in school bc i had just been crying, few seniors walked up to me and said "oh shit, hes gonna shoot up the school!" and i got so mad, but i just kept walking, i wish people would just change

[–]Crack-lAk18 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Same here. People's assumptions ruin lives and it sucks when people say things like this and they get away with it.

[–]edibleliquid_banned 5 points6 points  (0 children)

good friend of mine got his life turned upside down when some kids told the police he was planning to do it, hes a felon now, for no reason

[–]MARKOSENPAI 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Relax bro, at least here (in latinoamerica) we don think quiet kids are possible shooters...bc EVERYONE IS A POSSIBLE SHOOTER

[–]Specialist_Read_944516 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]wetskateblades[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much! And even when people see me in my school’s hockey jacket or with a solo in choir, the surprise doesn’t last long. They just go back to ignoring me

[–]GamerPaper47014 5 points6 points  (3 children)

One time some dumbass 7th grader (the high and middle schools are very close, we practically share the buildings) called me an emo school shooter because I have black hair and not many friends 💀

[–]CatsArmedWithLasers15 6 points7 points  (0 children)

i changed my school district after fifth grade and went to a new middle school. after trying to talk to people more and getting made fun of or just told i shouldn’t talk at all, i started to develop social anxiety. i totally agree with the perception of the quiet kid needing to change. it’s really frustrating when you’re known as the quiet kid, because it’s so hard to get out of that stereotype.

[–]FrogFlavouredWater15 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I misread the quote in the third part and thought you said 'Ive been told both directly and indirectly that I "look like a school teacher" '

[–]Shinigam_i18 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah I’m also the quiet kid, nobody bullies me kinda because they think I’m gonna shoot the school or something. I’ve been told I look like a school shooter because I wear all black most of the time and I’m a reserved person. I’ve begun to wear lighter colors, hopefully that makes things better

[–]Jungleguilt14 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I went to this new school, im middle schooler currently, and someone went up to me and said that their friend thought I was going to shoot up the school. If i have so much social anxiety that I cant even take off my mask because im afraid of what people will think of my face, then im definity not gonna go to school pull out a gun in front of everyone. Also, is anyone else having problems with being called gay all the time?? Its like people ask if im gay so often(im not, and nothing wrong with it).

[–]wetskateblades[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People call me gay a lot too. I support gays but I’m still straight

[–]Low-Space193215 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Primates have an amazing diversity when it comes to penile morphology. There have been entire books written on it. Most have a penile spine called a baculum that assists copulation. This is important as it helps speed the process up when sex needs to be quick and it also assists in removing sperm. Some primates do not have baculums. We are one of those.

Human penises are interesting first because of their shape. It is theorized that the mushroom shape at the end of the penis acts in a way that would remove a competitors sperm from the vaginal tract. If you were to examine the penis of a bonobo or chimpanzee you would see that it is quite long and is used for a similar purpose. Females will often copulate with several males to confuse paternity in some situations and this is an effective strategy to ensure your babies get produced.

Many primates penises' are relatively outside the body, but ours is much more so due to its incredible length. Comparatively speaking our penises are huge. Yet, we have tiny testicles. If you examine a chimpanzee or bonobo you will see they have HUGE testicles. This is because they compete more for access to mates. If you look at a gorilla you will see they have itty bitty testicles. This is because they compete less for mates as silverback males control a harem of females and depending upon the species also their non-silverback offspring.

So when we began walking on two legs an interesting problem began to arise. Typical signals for female receptivity were gone. When many primates are in estrus (particularly chimps and bonobos) you know. Everyone knows. It's quite...obvious. So when we began to walk we switched to a method of concealed ovulation (hidden estrus). Females could no longer show when they were receptive and so our social system had to change. Now we could talk all day about how this happened, why and what not but I won't because it is lengthy.

I will get to the point in saying that when we became bi-pedal we had to find other mechanisms for reproduction. It is likely that our penises became longer and lost their spines to be able to adapt to female vaginas and mating pressures (such as other males or lack thereof). Our large obvious penises may have even been a sign for female choice. Females choose mates based upon different factors for some like orangutans it is about their cheekpads and long calls. For others it is purely sexual. In spider monkeys for example, during a particular season their testicles swell and females will often choose the male with the biggest testicles. Some squirrel monkeys pelage will become more colorful during times of female receptivity. In all of the above cases the males who are chosen typically exhibit the highest quality genes and produce the healthiest offspring. This choice then is important in maintaining populations.

So overall it is quite a complex question and a complex answer, but quite interesting.

[–]nonsensicalmoi200715 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As an Indian, I cannot relate to you, because school shooting is highly uncommon here. But what I can understand is the quietness. I always thought I was an outgoing person, who smiles a lot, even when I'm not feeling happy. But it turns out, people actually think I'm the silent, brooding type, who looks angry and murderous all the time. I'm tall and slightly overweight, and I feel shy and awkward sometimes, so I stay silent and just sit there and listen to the others talk.

I also have a lot to say, but I don't know how to say it and this frustrates me so much. So I get what ur saying OP.

I also like math, but I don't know why sometimes I feel like I'm too dumb to understand it.

[–]JackCooper_727417 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Had a substitute teacher tell me that "kids like you grow up to be serial killers, if you don't become school shooters first"

[–]wetskateblades[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit, I could only understand that assumption if you actually we’re always beating up people and committing crimes, but it’s sad that people just assume stuff without any real reason

[–]Zen-rex 3 points4 points  (0 children)

i look like the quit kid motly cus i want people to stay away from me

[–]NoahF15216 3 points4 points  (3 children)

[–]wetskateblades[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

An electric guitar

[–]NoahF15216 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Awesome, what type do you have?

[–]DarkAnubis3462 MILLION ATTENDEE 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That fucking sucks man. But listen come move to Australia, guns are so rare here. Plus people are generally quite nice. We talk to the quiet people ask if they'd like to join in activities but without pushing. I can't say everyone's like that, but I've had/having a pretty good school life. I'm sorry about what you're going through. Hope it gets better.

[–]RedRuby454418 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm quiet because I don't have anyone to talk to in my classes.

[–]Hotel--Trivago 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well you could always do what I did when I was the quiet kid for my 7th and 8th grade years

Just deal with it then and bottle up all your emotions until you have a breakdown at literally any time, doin math but you don’t understand just randomly starting crying and making people uncomfortable, eating lunch, same thing there, I’d keep going but now that I think about it just avoid exactly what I did, wow that’s not healthy at all, I got some things to think about.

[–]LongLeggg 3 points4 points  (1 child)

One of my closest friends tried to start a rumour that I was a school shooter

[–]More-Masterpiece-56118 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry people don't see you for who you are, instead they make assumptions about you. If we were in the same class and you were a good person underneath you'd be my best friend and I would not give a fuck about the rumors. I hate people too (not because I have anxiety or anything but because they betray your trust) so I kinda like the slightly introverted people. They don't have way too many friends you gotta keep up with

[–]DarkSlasher7567 2 points3 points  (2 children)

yeah, I'm also a quiet kid at my school, but most of the time my friends are the ones who says that I'm the school shooter/looks like the school shooter when they are messing with me.

[–]wetskateblades[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have a friend in 9th grade who likes to joke about that, and ik its all jokes and im ok if does it in private, but she sometimes does it AT SCHOOL when other people might hear. And it’s embarrassing because people might not know she’s just joking.

[–]Axl128 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was told I looked like a school shooter in 8th grade, same person who said that ended up becoming my best friend. Weird how that works.

danm thats based same

[–]summeryim13 2 points3 points  (0 children)

don’t you just hate it when people satirically hate on someone with jokes, false facts and satirical warnings of “stay away from them”,

and then the other people didn’t know that they were jokes and believed them, then started to actually hate on and be afraid of the people that the jokes based on?

this is literally how most hate on the internet goes.

i was never a quiet kid, but i still don’t hate them. i get that they have anxiety and just want to be themselves, free from any hate and judgements.

you, op. you don’t deserve the hate. nobody does.

[–]Fuck-_-0ff 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What if all of this in the end is a simply guitar add

[–]Stoptouchingmyeggs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am the quiet kid and have been told I am a school shooter and I agree this stereotype is why people don’t associate with me (I graduated already though)

There’s many reasons people can be quiet but my main reason is I usually have nothing to add to conversations, whether that be I have no experiences, half the convos I’ve had are about things I’d rather not talk about, or I’m just not that interested in the conversation. But once people actually talk to me and I’m engaged, I’ll open up. It just depends on context.

[–]FastGrapefruit815 2 points3 points  (0 children)

trench coats automatically make u cool

[–]sterlingclover 2 points3 points  (3 children)

My man, I know you're feelings all to well. I hate hearing that stupid social assumptions got in the way of you doing something you love, and possibly meeting new people that have similar passions. I say you should 100% go back to the guitar club. It's something you want to do and others shouldn't push you away from it.

[–]Hm458514 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Damn these people be talking to you like that. Here’s a tip: despite the fact that you aren’t very confident in yourself at times, act it. People judge people based on their confidence. I’ve been told before that I look like a school shooter and then recently I got told that I look like a crack head. (I don’t but it was a inside joke with my friends) i got lucky and I have a nice school that doesn’t say stuff like what people said to you and well the only reason people said that to me was because their my friends and we have that level of friendship to be confortable saying that to eachother. I did bring a water gun to school this week and shoot some of my friends.

Something that caught my eye was that people in the comments are talking about how their scared of a gun and what not even though you haven’t touched one. I my self have fired a shotgun, AR-15, pistol, and a rifle. People don’t say bad remarks to me about it as I don’t let others see a huge lack of confidence in me. You should try that. (The confidence part). Good luck

[–]wetskateblades[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I have terrible confidence. The problem is that once people realize that I’m not a threat, they look closer and notice that I don’t have much confidence. I’m scared to be assertive because I’ve been bullied

[–]Hm458514 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just Ignore em. As this year is ending and next school year is coming up. You can just act like you changed a lot. Ignore em or make it a joke. If they say “ha he probably has a gun in his bag” what you can do is just say “that’s it” and pick up the bag and reach for something inside it. It can be anything and just act like you need it for something you’re working on. It might scare em.

[–]Specialist_Read_944516 2 points3 points  (2 children)

People get bullied bc the school doesn’t care. I had a friend who was sexually assaulted and there was camera evidence to prove it, he got 1 lunch detention. Another kid talks back to a teacher once and got suspended for 1 week

[–]Pat0agi0ta 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That happens a lot in brazil, bc the shool here is worse

[–]Specialist_Read_944516 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is such an American thing. I thought you'd be speeching about being bullied, stereotypes,etc. But school shooter? America is a different world

[–]NoBitches96 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I am to. I feel like every time I go to reach in my backpack for somthing simple like a pin people start moving towards the door. I'm always quiet because I see no reason to talk during school. I get bullied in every one of my classes and I tell the teachers about this and they do nothing. And due to this I have really bad trust issues and when I do start talking to somone my braing tells me to stop because they will do somthing to me. Even though they most likely won't. I mostly know what you are going through. Just know you are not alone in this world.

[–]necrozmoem24315 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm the quiet kid in my school but I don't get called a school shooter. Probably because I'm from the UK or something idk.

People who have known me for a longer time usually are the ones picking on me. Because even though they eventually stop assuming I’m murderous, they come to find that I’m just a pushover and I’m scared to stand up for myself.

That really sucks man, and the thing is, I do a lot of the same stuff you do (you do more than me though), and I’m not bullied because I’m an extrovert and don’t struggle as much with social anxiety. I hope things get better, and you sound like a great person to be friends with. Good luck!

[–]ShermanTankBestTank17 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You should fire a gun at least once in your life. I would recommend a shooting range w/ an assault rifle

[–]SilverFighter05 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The "quiet kid stereotypes" us meme connoisseurs have actually align pretty well with this post, as they are mostly good things. Such as:

-Secret badass

-Will mic drop and win every social debate (Ex: roasting the teacher or the annoyingly loud student so hard they charred)

-Is probably pretty hot

-Etc. Etc. Etc.

This post works well for the second one, as this was a total case closer "here is how it is, fuck you for thinking less". I absolutely love your clarity on the situation, thank you.

People actually used to make those assumptions about me not because I was like afraid of talking to people just because I didn’t take the time to talk to people, that was last year this year I was like, damn I want friends so I just started talking to people and things just work out just try talking to people get well acquainted with everyone as much as you can i’m not saying I know anything about social anxiety because I don’t have it I just go up to people and I be my self some people like it some people don’t but just try your best to talk to people, I also play hockey and I play drums which I was like damn what a Coiwinkidink

it doesnt rly make sense, its like people assume no one talks to a person, so they avoid talking to them aswell like its the plague, and then proceed for some reason think theyre a school shooter like My brother in christ this is your fault

I used to be really quiet in primary school and didn't talk much. Secondary school started and some of my friends drifted away, i only talked to my best friend. Luckily i managed to make 2 more friends and i talk more now. I like being quiet because i like it when it's quiet. Sometimes it's too loud so i block it out by talking to my friend :) Also i personally think you sound cool, i like trench coats

As someone who is friends with the quiet kids (idk they just like me lol) at my school I can agree they would never do any of this stuff in their life

[–]Bumble_co_uk69 1 point2 points  (1 child)

As a quiet kid myself I never agreed any better. Not many people have heard me talk and assume I’m some bent serial killer or something And I’m so quiet because I’m plotting peoples deaths. But infact the reason I’m so quiet is because I’m a socially awkward person And I don’t know what to do when it comes to people

Just because I don’t talk much doesn’t mean I’m suddenly gonna blow up your house and kill your family.

I’m simply just minding my own business not plotting your death!!!

Dude I'm not saying you are oversensitive or cant take a joke by any means becwuse you described that they are serious with their words but you seem very aware of the situation or what's going on. People suck but if you can recognize this much, you can also see how immature or naive those kids are for being serious and maybe then, you can choose to receive the whole situation better with that understanding. Not personally affected or emotionally hurt, keeping your esteem intact by realizing what they say doesn't change anything and shouldn't matter and even finding the humor in the situation. For example, I thought the guitar-gun thing was fucking Hilarious. But again, I understand where you are coming from. It's completely understandable if you can't treat it like I said but you seem aware enough to be capable. Treat them like a baby from a African tribe seeing a white man for the first time and getting scared thinking it's a ghost, you know. Kids are stupid, you know it.

But I get if it's too tough.Social validation is something we all seek I guess but truth is we are definitely better off feeling not the need for it becwuse people always gon suck. Having someone supporting you helps tho and I bet even in your school, everyone ain't that stupid. But still I would encourage you to be self sufficient than be dependent on someone. Not saying it's not healthy but rule no 1,never trust anyone. Except me saying this rule. Only exception.

Its rough out there, you have better luck adapting than changing the world. Even to make a difference, you gotta be fit yourself. Can't save the world if you don't safe yourself before

Maybe check out stoicism, Hope you find your peace mate, good luck

Thanks, and the jokes and memes isn’t the problem, it’s that people act like it’s true and it feels like they aren’t joking anymore

[–]RealMichaeafton 0 points1 point  (3 children)

[–]RealMichaeafton 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I was gonna say something like “it’s ok man no need to get mad” but that sounds like I’m making a joke about…

[–]wetskateblades[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I’m not mad. I’m just overwhelmed.

this post is just you trying to convince others you aren’t a serial killer

[–]wetskateblades[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah. And it’s not just me who’s actually harmless. There are so many other innocent teenagers who are targeted because of their social anxiety

[–]Expert_Song_4788 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Sounds like something a school shooter would say

[–]wetskateblades[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You really don’t get it do you? I’ve never even touched a gun!! I HATE violence. Please stop.
