Usually I just get people glaring or yelling, “weirdo”, “creep”, “freak” or “hippy” at me. It got more physical recently.
I had to laugh at the local propaganda sheets recent article claiming Toowoomba to be the friendliest city in the country. It is actually a very nasty, conservative, little hell hole full of the sort of hate-filled people my father joined up to fight in WWII.
To quote another person who recognised the danger of conformist culture, “Was mich nicht umbringt macht mich stärker.”
