Someone who doesn't label themself to any specific identity. They are often overlooked by the rest of the world and usually don't 'fit in' with the rest of the scene. They are also commonly used by what friends they think they have, as the outcast being a nice person and all.

Outcasts have a harder time fitting in or finding friends as their interests are probably not what's mainstream and popular. Afterall, if everyone was all interested in the same thing (which most are) the world would be a boring place. A good example would be someone who is a roller coaster enthusiast in school, where no one else gives 2 hoots about that subject matter.

It is common that an outcast only hangs out by their friends if the friends have nothing else to do...and use the outcast as a last resort.
Outcast's friends: Hey, let's call up Bob as none of the rest of our friends could go to the movies.

The kinda kid who only looks after himself, and the few who hang with him.

Someone truely unique

1. Someone who doesnt belong, and as such is most often seen by themselves or with a friend or two at most.

2. Me
1. There's almost no outcasts at my high school; they're all rich Republicans and buy their friends.

2. I am an outcast and I don't care what you think.

Outcasts are people who don't fit in in a society. In most schools nowadays, nerds, geeks, and goths are usually outcasts. However, a prep may be an outcast in a nerd convention. Outcast can be used for almost anything out of place.
That barbie doll is an outcast here at this Star Wars convention.

Someone who is a human being and is pushed down in society for being a human being. They are the few, the proud, the oppressed. They have the same potential as anyone else in their community (usually highschool) but since they are normally not rich, have good clothes or "threads", or sometimes even "WHITE", they are targeted.

Usually Outcasts aren't seen fighting much due to the fact that most of them are shy and nice people.
Outcast: (to his friend(s) Hey you guys play CoD?

Popular/HypeBeast/Hipster/Bopper: Who cares? Just GTFO here.

Outcast goes home and plays his bass.

An outcast often starts out in life neglected and severely abused by parent(s) who, even sometimes secretly and unspokenly, reject the outcast as a baby or small child. The trauma of rejection and abuse distracts the little outcast from developing normal social skills while growing up.

Not being accepted at home, the outcast does not learn how to accept their own self. To try to compensate, the outcast tries too desperately to find acceptance out in the world. Naturally, kids at school sense the excessive despair, and sometimes use it to tease and frustrate the outcast. ( "Why should I like you if you don't seem to even like yourself?" ) Some kids take advantage of that vulnerability in the outcast.

The excessively desperate need of the outcast for outside acceptance (even if this becomes a "secret") continues to be met with resistance and further rejection at school. Over the years, this process can have a spiraling effect.

If an outcast also happens to be highly intelligent or extremely talented in some way, this can really complicate the situation if the outcast encounters jealousy in some of the other kids.
Many outcasts in school had started out as severely abused and neglected children at home. I know first hand because I was an outcast.

A group of people who are vital to our culture. In a society there must be outcasts whether punks-nerds-freaks or in more rural cultures shamen-witches-people with "magic powers". its not nessecarily something useful but for some reason humans always have and always will separate themselves or others from the group. Those on the inside are either brillant, athletic, or beatuiful. These are genetic codes inbedded in us. Our perception of beauty is based on 3 main factors, health, fashion/culture, and measurements of facail symetry. Unsymmetrical faces can usually be attributed to infections in pregnancy making this person slightly sicklier or having genetics that may create weak offspring. So there for pretty+pretty=higher chance of jungle survival and any sign of weakness is standing to say that that person is a burden on the group as they dont have as many natural skills as the others though some with good intelligence may be able to set them selves up in postitions of high power with or without athletics through politics (does this sound like survivor yet)
In this society where we dont leave our sick and weak to die in the street we have people with a natural compulsion to distance themselves from others. Thus giving us our since of exclusivness, and social structure. So we have punks, goths, LARPers, and all that crap.
Prep(durdur): I hate you for reasons i dont know, dont understand anything you say, and have no comprehension of why you do anything you do. But I respect your choice to balance society with freakishness. Thankyou manic.

Punk(hooray): I hate you cause you victimize me, you cant think further than prom, you follow like a flock crows shit you even squak like a crow. But I realize that your fascism makes our culture possible. Thankyou nazi.

Prep(durdur): Now get yo head in that toilet!

Punk(hooray): No bitch *stabs with sword*

ex. for outcast
