I am currently being put through the filthy cesspool that is education and being the only "punk" let alone really the only "different" kid in a school with less than 600 kids and less then 150 in my grade is a weird experience in and of itself but to deal with the super conservative uber Christian population of my school, THAT makes my blood boil. Recnetly I have been dealing with someone who I disagree on almost every level with. I sit near this goon in two classes and have to deal with his anti-evolution rants anti-climate change rants and anti-leftist rants on a daily basis. He has consistently bothered me for my openly anti-religion pro gay rights and pro choice ideals to which I have combatted to the best of my abilities. But for some reason every single thing I say falls on deaf ears as though I'm screaming at a brick wall of ignorance. Yesterday I almost lost my shit about this. I was wearing a denim vest with an Amebix back patch with the small monicker of "no gods no masters" on the lower left hand corner and while sitting in Spanish class this idiot starts ranting about my fucking back patch! I said nothing to him! He starts going on about how my vest has "demonic imagery" to which I tell him "this has no demonic imagery on it, it's clearly a picture of a man and I don't even believe in demons." to which he responds "Do you know what Amebix is?" to which I jokingly repond "A killer band." to which he responds "A pagan ritual!" (I didn't know that and was glad to learn it q I then respond "Well a lot of things in our society have some pagan elements..Did you expect EVERY single pagan to give up there practices for Christianity all at once?" he then shrugs off the comment getting back to his work. 15 minutes later I hear this (he sits behind me) "You know your vest says 'no gods no masters' on it right?" to which I respond "Yes." to which he responds "What if I wore a shirt to school that said 'purge the atheists'" to which I respond "Well you wear shirts with biblical verses on them so I can say that the phrase no gods no masters is just as important to me as a biblical verse is to you." he shrugs it off again and later tells me he is going to wear a shirt that reads "purge the atheists" on it. The fucking audacity of this kid! I've never been in a fight in my life but I was about to throw a punch! I obviously don't plan on physically harassing him, but how do I deal with this kind of crap? how do you guys go about liberating minds in your daily life?
