Conformity's just another word for giving up
Where's the fun in conforming? Letting people and society tell you what you should and shouldn't wear.

Because they see through mainstream bullshit? They don't care what modern society thinks of them. I used to have a job at a Dollarama where the owner told me to wear my mohawk up when I worked, because he liked to express diversity in his store.

I dress gothic, I'm accepted by people. Maybe not strangers glaring and judging, although who cares for them anyway. And I don't blame these people for judging me, in fact I welcome it. Because if someone is so quick to judge based on look alone, I'm not sure I WANT to know that person.
