Unfortunately, rebels are now considered rednecks or goths. And most rebels now aren't really rebels. Most rebels conform to the other rebels. Which is just wrong on multiple levels. The term and true meaning of rebel has been slaughtered. Bashed. Destroyed. Cliche-ified.
Trust, true rebels are far in between and are often the most unlikely people you'll ever think of.
Other prep girl: I thought she was goth...
Prep girl: Oh, then why's she talking to those thugs?
Other prep girl: Like, I dunno... but I heard her listening to some country music in her car the other day.
Prep girl: That's soooo weird! I thought those kinds of people listened to rock.
Other prep girl: That girl is sooo weird!
Prep girl: Totally!

Teacher: She's what you would call a rebel... a non-conformist.
Other prep girl: Nuh uh!
Teacher: Then what would you call her?
Teacher: Thats what makes her a rebel.
