Alright now, I know that I usually only post famdom stuff on here but I gotta get something off my chest. Nonconformity. People think its cool to not go with the flow, to be different. AND IT IS. However, that is not nonconformity. If you are weird, (Like me) that doesn’t make you a nonconformist. A nonconformist automatically disagrees with everything that society does. What does “society” do? Well. You can’t fit an entire population and just say it’s “society” as if its millions of people that all have the same opinion about one particular thing. Because thats not what “society” is. Not everyone has the exact same beliefs. People say things like “Society killed the teenager” but they don’t realize that they are society. Each person makes up what we call “society” and that includes you. You are a part of society. Just because you believe something different doesn’t mean that you are automatically not a part of society. You exist. You count. So whenever someone kills themselves, don’t blame it on “society” as if its something that you have nothing to do with. We make up our society. And we can choose if that society is going to be a good, or deadly one. “Society” doesn’t kill people. Individual people kill people. And sometimes, people kill themselves. It’s a backstabbing girl, or heart breaking boy that drives someone over the edge. It’s the human beings. Not everyone in your society killed the teenager. Just a few. By saying “Society killed the teenager” you are admitting that you also killed him/her. Its never a glob of people that makes someone want to kill themselves, it’s the individual people in society that push someone to the edge. By saying that it’s “society” you are spreading the blame to everyone and taking some of the blame away from the people actually responsible. So don’t say, “Screw society” or “I hate society” because that includes the people you love and yourself too. You can’t mash people together into one category. Everyone is different. The problem starts when you can’t accept them for who they are, and then you become part of their “society” and you kill the teenager.
