upon by R. Anaya (Anaya 1996:51). But meaning handling your business, protecting what is yours, and taking no mess from others. So growing up I had to be “Macho” and strong. Another one of the readings I can relate to is T. Avicoli work not because I identify with being a homosexual male but because growing up I had skin disorder called psoriasis that I was picked at about. I can empathies with Tommi about how he felt. And like Tommi I didn’t run home and tell my parents I just kept it all inside. I was called reptile boy and people often looked at me with fear not because they felt I was weird but because they were ignorant to my situation. I would often wear closed that covered my skin so people would interact with me and I could feel like I was a part of them. I feel that this has shaped me into being a little reticent to the groups I associated with or who I open up to. So like Tommi school was a little painful for me growing up (Avicoli 1995:69). When my skin got better I began to break out my shell and became more outgoing and involved in the things I did and the people I hung out with. I began to become talkative and felt more alive and that I had a purpose.
