Discussion over Frankenstein creation final thoughts

At the end, the monster speaks a very powerful truth when he asks Walton why it is that he is the only one judged and hated, asking why Felix or the rustic (whose young girl he had saved from drowning)—why they were not hated? How fair and correct is his question? How do you respond to his question? How might it be answered and answered honestly? Do you admonish or understand Felix and the young man—or any of the others who saw the monster, for that matter? Were Felix and the rustic mere representations of humanity? How do we avoid, condemn, or isolate those who are (not even monstrous so much), but simply different? Part II: After you answer the questions above, what specific part of this last section of the novel caught your attention? WHY was that part specifically significant to you??? Explain HOW and WHY the idea matters today or should continue to matter to a general readership. I was thinking Ch 24 when the monster wanted to be loved and be seen “past his outward form”. For the second part of the assignment.
