In Current Year, it is more acceptable than ever to be part of a subculture. Previously, those who distanced themselves from mainstream thought, values and fashions were deemed a threat to the fabric of society itself. Now, however, expressing your uniqueness along with like-minded individuals is de rigueur.
To rebel is to conform. Individuality is group-think.
Being different from the mainstream no longer entails living a life of exclusion and loneliness. Minorities have become the new majority. Pick up almost any MSM newspaper, or tune into the MSM TV news and it’s clear that people only care about minorities such as the transgendered, the minor-attracted and any other part of the LGBTQ+ smorgasbord. But, if you’re unlucky enough to be hetrosexual, it’s not the end of the world; many other subcultures exist such as punks, the hipsters, New Age, grunge, bikers, Vampire Culture, Trekkies, skinheads, snakeheads, beatniks. The only question is: who do you want to be today?
Thanks inter alia to social media such as Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat, it’s easier than ever to connect with people who share all manner of quirky interests. By ‘liking’ the photos and posts which correspond to what you think your worldview should be, you will be part of your chosen subculture in no time.
Intersectionality also means that various victim groups can unite and find common cause against white fucking men. Finding those with a shared philosophy and outlook on life, despite physical differences, is surprisingly easy. The comments section of Accredited Times’ articles is a great example of this: a space where the most marginalized of society (transpecied, transgendered, non-binary, furries, Onanists, personality-enhanced) can together make progressive-affirmative statements.
Projecting your uniqueness to the outside world used to be so hard. Say one day you decided you hated the world (and your embarrassing parents) so much that you felt it would be cool to express this by being a hardcore and extremely sullen goth. Unfortunately, your wardrobe has no suitable clothes! What use is the teeshirt with the ‘TRAINING’ or ‘I ❤️ NYC’ decal? Physical exercise is anathema to the goth lifestyle and you now despise NYC, the hotbed of capitalism. You have no black make-up either and your hair is much too neat.
In the old days, you might have to walk many miles around town to find the right stores stocking goth clothes ‘n stuff. Today, you have Amazon: the answer to everything. In the time it takes to click your mouse, you can order the trashiest, blackest clothes available to humanity. Also, if you decide that the goth lifestyle isn’t really you, you have a generous 3 months returns policy with Amazon so you could maybe order a lumberjack shirt, tight jeans, oversized glasses, and be a hipster instead.
Getting the goth make-up right is also a cinch: online guides such as Wiki-How include the helpful ‘how to apply Goth make-up: 15 steps (with pictures)‘ so that you can be truly authentic and look exactly like any other goth.
So, make sure you investigate today the best way to express your individuality and rebel against the world. There is bound to be a counter cultural subculture out there where you will truly belong.
Note: some people such as Christians claim to be truly counter cultural by rejecting the ‘spirit of the world’, refusing to go along with the fashionable thinking of the day (e.g. Abortion, same sex marriage etc.) and even rejecting cultural relativism in favour of ‘absolute truths’. However, Christians are merely deluded as well as hateful.
