Unwanted Attention by somethingelse77 Unwanted Attention by somethingelse77
Another older drawing, from around 2006.

Every time Caitlin goes to the Mall or the store, someone takes a picture, or whispers from a distance. When she was six, the magazine 'People' did a photo-article about her (when she was a baby, several medical journals studied her as well), after requesting it for almost a year. Most people still remember that, or have heard of her regardless. Normally however she does not grant interviews or allow the endless requests for stories and articles. This was her parent's policy, and that's she's taken up. Caitlin is just your average small town girl, and that's all you need to know. Severe congenital deformities are irrelevant.

She pretty much just let's it go, and barely even notices it any more. As she tells people, she "simply can't afford to have low self-esteem".

Occasionally though when people call her "monster", she gets understandably upset, but only because that's really mean, otherwise she ignores "freak", "mutant" etc with righteous indignation.

Every once in awhile, she'll be confrontational, if someone is making a big deal, and will tell them to bug off or not be rude. But while staring is probably her greatest pet-peeve, there's nothing she can really do, as that's pretty much inevitable, even in her town.
