I have a Gemini ascendant and I really really identify with Gemini characteristics: friendly, outgoing, easy to talk to, sometimes long winded. But I've also seen that so many people strongly dislike Gemini and I'm curious about why. Brutal honesty is appreciated!
I don't think Gemini rising would be associated with being disliked. Try being a Gemini sun most particularly Gemini in the big 3 major planets ie Gemini sun, moon and Mercury and you'll get a dose of one big hate and jealousy for almost no particular reason beyond insanity.
