    I Am Not Going to Accept Social Engineering

    There is one particular freedom that means more to me than any other.  That is the freedom of expression.  I have never sought to circumvent, hinder, or control the words or expression of others.  I will challenge any attempt to do so. Political Correctness is...

    They're Fun to Break

    There are some societal mores and guidelines that I find absolutely ridiculous...so I ignore them. Its not really about being a rebel or breaking rules (although that is fun); its about being true to who I am. And, if my path veers away from society's petty rules, so be it.

    They're Just Plain Dumb

    Now first, let me get this straight.  I'm not a complete rebel/anti-conformist.  In general, I follow the law and do what people tell me, as long as it doesn't endanger myself or anyone else.  Some rules I think are very good.  Many American laws are simply...

    Each Group Has It's Own Rules

    I don't think 'society' is as general as most people assume it is.  When living within a group of people that party there are different unwritten rules your friends ect expect you to live by.  The same applies to living within a conservative straightlaced crowd; just...

    Just Becuase You Think...

    Something is perfectly right. Does not mean that it is. Everything in life is okay. Not everything in life thats out of your norm boundaries is wrong or a disorder. Problem is people label things as disorders because it's an inconvenience to someone else.
