That ‘faggot’ you told is a disgrace. He is more capable of love than you will ever be.
That ‘ugly cow’ is more beautiful than you will ever be even with your inches of makeup.
That pregnant ‘slag’. Maybe there is a story behind it. Did you stop to think she may have been violated? Or maybe she has it all planned out, with a long term partner, a job, a future with a gorgeous young child she has always wanted. You aren't exactly a nun yourself.
