The new christian missionary generation subculture. They dress in cheap-looking clothes even if they are actually expensive designer-distressed clothes. Girls usually wear dresses and jewelry themed after foreign ethnicities, especially Africa. Guys wear clothes that look kinda like hand-me-downs and by this are saying that they dont care about clothes. Some overlap into hipster attire. They come across as individualistic and carefree. Do not spend much time on hair either. Not uncommon to have tatoos or girls to have nose rings. The most distinctive indicator is a cheap fabric bracelet or multitude of bracelets on the wrists or lower arm that they probably picked up on a short missions trip to Mexico. They are usually more open to things that are often considered taboo in christian culture such as drinking and smoking. They enjoy roughing it and living a simple life or at least pretend that they do. The name is derived from a merger of Christian and Hippie.

To noncomfort is to completely ignore the society norms and its pressures on you.
The image that some people call "non-comfortist" is just an image that they want to portray themselves are independent and not needing of society and it's rules and regulations to functions as a being. It's because of the individualistic nature of this society that many people wish to portray themselves as such. And it's something you don't decide. You are born a nonconformist. It's not that you purposely go against the norms. It's that you fail to recognize the importance rules, structures and social norms and this naturally makes an above average level of uniqueness to you. Given the lack of this pressure to conform to sociality you given much more freedom to think and act and do. Your acts, thoughts, and ideas may appear absurd to others. Nonconformist tend to either be leaders or loners and mavericks. They are often too new and innovative for their own times. What they hate most is bureaucracy, and way too often when given a position of power they will throwaway the normal routines and traditions of the office. Free-flowing, creative, and intensely independent and individualistic; Born to pave their on path in life and refuse to accept somebody else's; Always Changing; Never Stopping; Trend Setting; with an inability to follow the establish rules and procedures even the ones they set themselves.
Their Greatest Strengths: Being new, innovative, and trailblazing; ...
non conformist - not goth or punk - not a political stand. not a rule maker or a rule breaker. just as a conformist - some follow rules some do not. i painted my living room orange.. my furniture don't match but i like it. people want me to get a big tv i dont even want a tv. they call me a hippie. I wont have stuff because you like it. i wont wear clothes because of what you say stylish. I wont drive a car that you say is cool. I wont eat at the trendy restraunts unless i want to. And when i do - i will dress as i please. I buy clothes at hot topic if i like them not because its a really hip store I also buy clothes at a thrift store. My style is almost never what is expected my tastes are way out. i know when i can be loud and obnoxious and i know when it really is uncalled for. A Non-conformist is just a person who you cant place into any specific cultural category (ie: normal/average/emo/goth/punk/etc) and i am not judgmental just because i am not like you.more...
People who associate themselves or often get associated with the so-called "gothic" movement, a musical style that evolved out of british post-punk and US punk, but which is now really a collection of very diversified, "darker" styles of more electronic or more guitar-ridden music. In "goth" clubs, original "gothic rock" styles got mixed with industrial/EBM music, New Wave and some alternative styles since the late 80ies. In the mid-90ies, labels and magazines promoted some so-called "gothic metal" and "industrial metal" bands out of commercial reasons, and because there were certain parallels in look and imagery of these bands to the gothic scene. In these Days, bands like Paradise Lost or Type o Negative, which were really "softer", sometimes romantic heavy metal bands were massively hyped, leading to newbies back then ignoring the original styles of the movement for those acts. In the Noughties, the metal trend waned and was replaced by another new trend towards a softer, melody-orientated form of EBM: "Future Pop" played by groups like VNV Nation and Apoptygma Berzerk. Additionally, very techno-orientated noise music by bands like Combichrist was getting heavy rotation in the clubs. Both styles are more accessible and easier to consume than former styles and tend to more and more replace all other styles of music associated with gothic scene in the club playlists, which leads to conflicts between "purists" and - usually somewhat younger - fans of the new style.more...
Similar to a double standard, but with an added dimension. This term specifically relates to how individuals operate in a developed country, particularly in a judgemental community/institution. This term also relates to people who are highly individualistic, who could really make more of an effort to assist others, but don't.
For example, there is a difference between what people say, do, and think. They might speak of one thing, have a different motive then they suggest, and do something totally different then they say they would do in a given situation.
This term can complement 'two-faced', but in this situation the person is 'three-faced'. One thing is objective: they are out for themselves
many university professors exhibit the 'triple standard'. you would assume they care about their students, but many really don't. they might say they would help/listen to you, but dont. and they might lead you to believe something that isnt true just because they enjoy authority and power.
An remarkably flexible word which can be applied to anyone virtually who is a teenager and has not made any visible efforts in their dress to appear 'alternative' or 'individualistic' or more accuratley isn't wearing solid black.
Very often apllied in derogatory tones by well off kids to describe young people who bear any signs of being working class ie gold earings, cheap clothes, old trainers.
I went out wearing ridiclously large trousers and a top saying 'f**k god' to try and get attention and the townies took the mick out of me. Boo hoo
goth: Sans history lesson, goths fall into two categories:
1. People, usually quiet misfits, who are often quite intelligent and creative. They tend to focus on the darker side of life, particularly human nature.
2. more common High school/college students who, by dressing in black and listening to heavy metal, attempt to make sure everyone around them is aware of how cool and individualistic they are. That their individualism centers on dressing, thinking, and acting like everyone else in the clique doesn't seem to bother them. Can often be found writing bad psuedo-suicidal poetry in wirebound notebooks. They usually drop the facade as soon as they realize that no one around them, including their parents, is shocked any more.
1. "Hey, see the goth over there? Go ask to see her artwork. It's really cool."
2. "Ohmigod, did you, like, read the new Anne Rice book? I am, like, so glad I'm a goth!"
