77. Yup, most of my life.

I get it for not looking exactly pearly white, was regularly called the "N" word as a child and into adulthood though I'm not African American; for being female, for being female and driving semis and doing better than most men without their help" (women aren't supposed to be better at anything than a man); for being female and having a brain that I use regularly; for not being wealthy or having a husband and for not wanting to have sex just because some guy thought I was sexy, or for getting a job that a guy wanted... and so much more.

Hell my own family treated me different because of my skin tone, which was the same as half the family but I was singled out and actually enslaved by them for years until I was able to liberate myself. Even the guy I married eventually told me he liked me as his little black gem, which is one of the reasons I left him... I have a slight olive coloring and dark red hair so I don't get where that mindset came from.

Yeah, been there, done that and I survive psychologically because I am intelligent and a recluse, staying away from the GP works for me in my private life. I go out in public on occasion and interact when I'm out and do interact with the public on my job, I go home to recharge my batteries.

Now I'm old and when someone shows that judgemental attitude, I just get away from them without comment, not worth casting pearls before swine.
