Hey, I just got back to PokeCommunity after months and read your message, it made me feel much better about myself. I'm glad to know that I'm not retarded or gay for having an interest in Pokemon. Thanks for what you said. I'm now 14 and in 9th grade, and I've shown my class that it's ok for someone this age to do this. Lots of people have learned to accept my interests, and I have become more social.
Hey man, I saw the thread you made. I just wanted to tell you to hang in there. Its not you that needs to grow up, its them. I'm in college, and my top two interests are Pokemon and Korean girl pop bands. And you want to know something fun? People learn to just accept that you like stuff that they don't like. Everyone has that one different thing that they like, that most people dislike. It just makes you who you are.
