Well, as most of you know (or should know), I'm an albino ( basically a form of mutant) born of a black family, meaning, my skin compexion and hair or very white and fair. Earlier on in the week, I went to a water park with my family to celebrate my younger sister's birthday

Normally, I would keep on a T-shirt, to help protect my delicate skin, but there were times I had to lose the shirt, in those events I couldn't help but notice the mass amount of looks I was getting, and I quickly realized I was the whitest person around, the obese, the obvious gays, even "the pasty brigade", nerds who barely see sunlight, all of these people had at least stolen a glance at me (especially while with my family), there were even a number of rude comments. Those pissed me off something fierce, especially when someone called me a polar bear

Of course, I'm rather used to this since it's gone on literally since the day I was born, my question is.......

Have you ever been stared at?
If so, why would you be stared at?
What or your thoughts on staring?
Why do you think people stare?
Tell why YOU would stare?

i dont stare at people i guess, not that i know about it. maybe just a quick glance because they're hella hot or have nice cleavage hehe. but when people stare too long at me i wanna smack them.
-edit- eheh oh yeh the main point of this thread:
i guess people stare because something attracts their attantion, it can be positive and negative. maybe because they see something they really like, or maybe because they see something you dont see often. but staring is rude and it makes the other person uncomfortable.

i'd stare at you, but it wouldn't be in a bad way ;)
I've seen your pics.... you're a cutie!

Anyway...
Flirting over with.
I get stared at a lot becuase of my chest... it's quite large and men tend to talk to it rather than my face.
I also get stared at when i'm driving because i just look so gosh darn CUTE!
(gosh- darnit!) - inside joke
I think people stare because they haven't the intellect to be able to take one glace and memorize it for future study.
Think about gapers delay when driving... i mean a horrible accident, and people HAVE to stare. I'll admit i stare, but i'm staring to see if there is enough medical personell on the scene to see if i need to stop and help.

SOoooo.. .
yeah
There ya go, my two cents... (it's actually three cents now, inflation, gotta love it!)

i really hate it when people stare, mostly b/c my sister is in special education and alot of people stare at her
but when people stare at her when we're out i just stare right back at them with a just a blank face and they look away, and i hear my share of rude comments too
i think people stare b/c they're probably not used to seeing it or something, that's probably why i would stare (i dont usually do b/c i know it's rude)

Staring is rude, and I try not to.
Sometimes it is very difficult to ignore some people, it's human nature. However, yes, staring is rude and should be avoided... not that we can't look at other people of course.

the best way i think is to try to ignore it, but i know that doesnt always work. im not really sure if there is a way to deal with it, i think you just have to get used to it i guess

If you're afraid that you're too white, then dye your hair an amazing colour.
Takes the staring away from you to your hair

I've been dying my hair various colors since I was 12. Because of this, people tend to stare at me (or, rather, my hair) a lot. D: Once I felt really awful about it, because at the time I had this horrible highlighter-yellow hair and I was out in the sun (which made my hair seem 10 times brighter) in the middle of a parking lot at a mall. One woman was staring at me and nearly wrecked her car.

By now, people in my town are used to it, so I don't get stared at that often. In fact, random people now recognize me. It's pretty neat. & reactions from kids are always amusing. However, there have been a few instances when people were just plain rude to me for absolutely no reason.

I've noticed that I don't really stare as much as I 'people watch.' This tends to happen a lot when I'm sitting down in a restaurant. I suppose it's curiosity or something. I like looking at all the different people. ^_^

Yes and I hate it. So I stare/glare back at them until they stop.
