lol... This was several years ago, and I've become dried up and bitter in the interim between now and then, so I honestly couldn't care less anymore about these situations. I'll actually stand up for myself now instead of letting others control my life.
I've had a spectrum of awful experiences from being spit on and called a faggot at a high school football game to receiving seemingly ceaseless death threats from my classmates, but the worst by far that I am willing to share with the world would have to be when I was stalked and threatened to...

I used to detest my name, but I have become rather fond of it over the years. Hayden is just uncommon enough to make an impression when one hears it, but it is not so uncommon to the point that it is unusual. But I am told that my full name makes me sound as a classy Victorian gentleman. :3
