I guess to me, the interpretation doesn't matter as much. Whether it's scars, or being handicapped, or the person talking funny, or as far out as hearing a relative of theirs murdered someone it's the same look. It gets the same reaction. It's one of those looks that just burns you to the soul. I'm glad the secret was shared though. It's not easy trying to get people to look past those things. They define you, in others eyes, before you have a chance to.

Yeah, I kind of figured it was a handicapped person.

It's not like they don't know they're outsiders.

Well.
Handicapped people fit in with other handicapped people, but that's still a minority and thus "outside".

It's not really possible--especially with a mental disability--to be "inside".

Correct me if you think I'm wrong.

I may not be in this conversation, but I think you are horribly wrong.

Handicapped or special needs people are only "outsiders" if those who are in the "majoriy" choose to let them be "outsiders". Mental disablities or physical disabilites are not things that make you an "outsider". It's what people think of those disabilites that makes them an "outsider".

Just because they're different in their own way does not mean they have to be considered an outcast. Would you say those who have terminal cancer aren't "inside" simply because they have an illness that cannot be cured?

I'm going to have to beg poor word choice on this. All I meant was that people with disabilities are treated differently from people without disabilities. And they know that they're different.

To my second post, I meant that people with disabilities find friendship with other people with disabilities, but they still lack a general social acceptance.

My sister has mental disabilities, and I see the result of this every day. She has three friends, and people stare at her all the time. She knows she's different, but she doesn't understand everything about her condition or the way people deal with how she is.

... Give me some example and I might actually consider taking your yet-unproved and almost ridiculous theory seriously.

Ironic how the most interesting thing about this secret are the interpretations it's getting. ;p

Btw, my interpretation was her breasts...O.o I assume because there's a female in the picture.. or I'm just dirty minded :D

It makes me think, maybe the ST is looking at other people, in a way they aren't meant too?
Like i.e someone in a relationship, looking at other people in 'that' way...

Interesting how other people interpret it...

I wish you luck with your problem.
