Despite popular belief, we are -not- all conformists. We are however, all influenced by sources other than ourselves. An 'individual' would be a person whom does what he/she wishes to, for reasons that he/she has justified themselves, rather than doing something because someone else deems it as correct, or 'cool', a conformist does the opposite. In short, a conformist gives way too much of a shit about what others think.
Sadly, the polulation has decided to categorise themselves as one thing or another, leading to so many labels, that we just assume that everyone is being a conformist slut, the vast majority of the time.
The whole "Emo" thing is the current conformist favourite, even though the concept is that "Nobody understands me." and "I'm so different.", when everyone undergoes this transformation, being a basketcase is now 'cool'.
I say we don't give them psychological help, and instead leave them to bleed from the wrists, crying, until they die.
Conformist Emo Slut: "Nobody understands me."
Anyone not bound by society's grip: "Please, stop moaning, and instead continue with the whole self-harming thing. You're not bleeding enough."
