Have you ever had someone call you something, usually they are trying to "insult" you; but when they say it...well, you can't help but feel a bit of pride? The above statement was used on me a few days ago, and I'm proud to say - it's all true, I guess; at least from the person's perspective that said it. I'm totally "Okay" with being perceived as "a card carrying liberal, bleeding heart, lesbo and fag loving; left-wing Socialist" because if that is what THIS person thinks of me; then it means they see me as the opposite of them - and that makes me rejoice!
I wonder, is this a phenomenon that only occurs in California? Or have you found yourself being "insulted" by someone and then thinking, "Actually, that sounds good; yeah, I'm fine with that!"? I'm curious to see.
