Names

A cool place to be totally lame.

Names

So, how does the whole name thing work?

Are they nicknames?

Or did did Ugly Girl's parents actually name her Ugly Girl? =b

Or is it one of those things that's just not supposed to be questioned? =b

They're labels. Ugly Girl is actually "The ugly girl," much like Queerboy would be "The queer boy," and so on. Someone decided to label them, and it stuck. And as they came to identify with their labels, their labels became their identity. It's like taking back the word.

Ahh, clever.

edit: Hm, I wonder what Queerboy's label was before he came out...

I'm guessing "Queerboy." Just because he hadn't come out doesn't mean that everyone didn't already know, or at least assume in that nasty, bigoted way that teenage boys do.

What do you think your label would be, Nanda?

In highschool, I fit a few of them, Ruby. Now? Uh... Depends on who you ask. Some would say "Purple-haired freak;" I've also been called a "Godless Liberal Feminist," which also depends on who you ask. My son has labeled me "Mommy," and I actually respect his opinion, so maybe I'll go with that.

Hmmm, I have a multitude of names, too. There's "freaky chick", "bitchy environmentalist", I think I've been called a lesbian, and "that tall girl". I am all of the above. (Well, bi, not lesbian.)

"Fat Bitch" was popular in highschool, and in college, people called me "Daria."

Hmmm. I've never been called fat yet. Well, I'm not but because I'm taller than the avarage woman and most the girls I know are scrawny you could say I'm fat next to them.

So tell me, Mommy, how come even Ugly's friends (or people who don't hate her) call her ugly?
I wouldn't do that!

And have you really been called "fat bitch?"
That's so mean! D:
My sympathies!
To me, you are the "genius webcomic artist."

Is it just like one of those names that stick and you can't help it?
