    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.

    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 Never Signed the Contract

    Where is the rule that says you have to be polite to jerks and ********? If it's not written down it isn't a rule.

    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...

    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.
