    Who the Hell Invented Ironing??

    Creaseless clothes, tableclothes, sheets, socks, undies etc - what a stupid, pointless thing for us to worry about!  I don't iron very often but I am annoyed that I feel the need to on occasion.  Do people really care if my children arrive at school with...

    The Individual And The Collective

    Paraphrasing one of my literary heroes, H.L. Mencken, my last words on the gallows will be to condemn collectivism in all of its forms. In the continuing struggle between "individualism" and "collectivism," you will always find me in the company of the former. I recall a...

    Pink Is For Girls and Blue Is For Boys

    Why Question?

    You shouldn't question social norms. You should try to understand them in context. All social norms make sense in their own context. You start 'questioning' when you really don't understand the context.

    I Don't Shave Regularly

    What's the point?? There's a reason why hair grows there right? And my husband doesn't mind so I don't bother. However, if I do wear a dress or shorts I will shave but most of the time I wear pants so who cares. And my arm pits? I hardly ever shave those even if they are...

    What Is Normal?

    I don't believe in "normal". We are all different and we all have pros and cons. I wish people wouldn't judge or hate.

    Guys And Their Legs.

    I'm not sure if this rates as a social norm or not but it is definitely something that seems to be universal amongest men in the western world...especially in rural areas. Men. They stand around in groups at parties, meetings, field days, other social events catching up with...

    Facade (of Stones)

    I have no idea what social norms are anymore.  When I was young social norms were everywhere.  There seemed a clear set of well-defined social mores and rules, laid down by generations, that were only there to be laughed and sneered at.  Rules vs social stigma.  The older I...

    Social Norms

    I came across this as I tend to question the society. Social Norms in my view can be corrupt as well. I have became socially awkward since my childhood. Even my school reports it as well when I reread my school's record of achievement. Most So called Norms are not normal in my...

    Who's In Control?

                Who regulates social norms anyways? Social norms are established to be seen as the way life has always "been." As time passes people change and these "norms" no longer fit accordingly to our society. I believe...

    Norms

    They annoy me. Sleep at this time, wake at this time, shower at this time, eat at this time, work at this time. I do not want to play by these rules. I need to do these things whenever I ******* feel like without other people's comments.

    Waxing and Shaving.

     Why do men and women need to shave/wax?  We really must have had plenty of time to develop new, pointless things occupy ourselves at some stage in our evolution!   P.S. I often go without shaving under my arms for weeks and go swim regularly at a public swimming...
