A rebel is a person who stands up for their own personal opinions despite what anyone else says. A true rebel stands up for what they believe is right, not against what's right. It's not about smoking crack, drinking till you're rendered unconsious, or beating the crap out of anyone that crosses your path. It's all about being an individual and refusing to follow a crowd that forces you to think the same way they do even if it means becoming an outcast to society. True rebels know who they are and do not compromise their individuality or personal opinion for anyone. They're straightforward and honest and they will sure as hell tell it like it is.
Erin was a rebel; she stood up to those who were fake or harassed others for being different.

Someone who believes in what they believe in. And isn't afraid to say it. Strong-willed. Doesn't "conform". Individal. Often anti-authority. Does what they want. Thinks for themselves.

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.
I read books because I'm a TRUE rebel.

A person who stands up for what they believe in, or be whoever they wanna be without trying to be someone they're not and not caring if other people hate it or like it, that's them. Just cuz u listen to punk rock, or metal, or gangsta music, or watever, and following that culture very deeply doesn't make u a rebel. THere's a lot of people wearing band shirts, quiksilver, element, so on. Just be yoruself and do what you think is right through thick and through, be who you really are, don't try to be part of a crowd you don't feel happy in, ther u go. Punk, metal, and rap have these ideologies in general i guess, but.....yea that's the ORIGINal meaning of rebel up there. Another type of rebel is common-known as anti-authoritarian, but watevr, different terminologies and same words i guess. (damn so much to type).
There's all these guys wearing sex pistols shirts, rapping about their chill lifestyle, all fitting into their own crowds, whoa they even got their own countrywide known clique names. Looks like the only rebel is the kid with the pink hair, wearing a ripped suit, and playing classical music in the corner, and refusing to do work.

The complete opposite of a Yankee.
That simple.
"Yes, I am a Rebel and very proud to be one. Do not let the stereotypical Redneck scheme portray a true Rebel."
