there is a boy in my secondary school called Ian. he is a big lad and hates me for being a ‘gyppo’. it’s never out in the open- always secret. but i’m not even a Romani by blood. i speak lots of the language, have Roma or sinti friends, and i’m abused for it. why is it me? my friend Liam says he is only taking it out on me because he’s bullied himself about being fat, but surely if he is then he would never wish it on me. he makes me ashamed to be who i am.
