    Man What Is Up With Those Rules?

    I don't shave my legs. Indignant bystander: "OMG she doesn't shave her legs while wearing things that reveal them! What's wrong with her?" Nothing's wrong with me. Everything is wrong with the "females have shaved legs" rule. And that's only the one I...

    I don't let the media

    and society dictate how I think and feel about things like they try to do. Everybody has an opinion these days, thanks to social media. If I don't agree with something, so be it. If I do, so be it. If a person doesn't agree with something that the majority of society does, that...

    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...

    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.
