I don't care about dressing a certain way because for one we wear uniforms and two I like to follow the schools dress code. I'm not clingy, not annoying. I'm polite to everyone I meet and I speak when spoken too unless I wanna say something to a friend. I shower every day, brush and floss, I wear deodorant that lasts 48 hours and I shave my underams so I never have any smell unless it's sweat. By the way I made the cross country team but AGAIN! no one talks to me unless it's like one word. Let me tell you a story about why I'm asking this question today. I was in P. E. class and we were allowed to play basketball. I usually never play but I just wanted to today so I went over by some boys and asked if I could be included when they pick teams. they immediately starting laughing amongst themselves and started calling me urkil. I decided I was gonna stand my ground and stay so the people on the bleachers wouldn't laugh at me but the whole game the team I was on kept telling me it was my fault we were losing when they were the ones pushing me out the way and still getting they're asses beat. so the whole game I basically just stood there getting made fun of. why didn't I try to say something back? because when I try to stand up for myself it's funny, they just laugh at me because they think I'm weak. This has been happening my whole life NO MATTER WHAT I DO! so please somebody give me some good advice. don't say exercise because I do, and don't make any asshole comments please I just want some help

"no one talks to me unless it's like one word"
Here's your problem. You need to increase your confidence and talk to people first. I know it's nerve wracking sometimes but it's something you have to do if you want people to notice you. Speak up in class discussions, get a part-time job, do something where talking to people is required. It'll at least help your social skills.
It's tough to give advice without actually knowing how you act, dress, or appear in person. Increasing your confidence and social skills may not instantly make everyone in the school like you, but it will benefit you in the future when you go off to college.0

Stop being so courteous to everyone. Do your own thing. You can still be respectful but tone down gentleman and turn up the badass.

Just call them a bunch of cunts.

Here it might be better to just call them a bunch of cunts and leave.
>> [...] because when I try to stand up for myself it's funny, they just laugh at me because they think I'm weak.
Instead of standing up for yourself by trying to prove something, do it more by not giving a damn. Lose all the insecurities. Don't give a damn.
Be independent. Go your own way. Don't try to change people's minds about you. Just do whatever the hell you want and find people who like it.1
