Boys wear blue; Girls wear pink. Boy play sports; Girls play with dolls.
The best parent is one who appeases their child’s every whim; A good parent never disciplines their child.
Self-centered is the norm. Family and friends won’t be there for you. No one will.
Join in on bullying. They obviously deserve it. Being different is bad, remember?
Girls, play dumb and boys will like you; Boys, act like jerks and girls will like you.
Relationships are about sex; not feelings, trust, or companionship.
Men should brag about their countless sexual conquests; Women should act innocent.
There is no such thing as love. Your marriage will never last.
Lose your virginity at age 17; get married at 23; first child at 25; and another at age 27.
If you have more than two kids, you have no self-control.
Cohabitation gives you the best of both worlds – sex without strings, relationships without rings.
Money is the most important thing in the world. If you have money, you can buy everything else you need in life.
Be clean-shaved, always. Men, your face; Women, your legs.
Thin is beautiful; Muscular is attractive. Volumptous and scrawny are revolting.
Being tan is more important than being healthy.
Wear Abercrombie, Ed Hardy, and Dior and you will be accepted.
If your start growing white hairs, you had better start dyeing them immediately. Aging is disgraceful.
Spend at least an hour a day on hair, makeup, and outfit selection. Get manicures and pedicures regularly. People notice; People care.
If you can’t see, get Lasik surgery. Glasses are geeky. Contacts are difficult.
Spend money on Botox, Liposuction, permanent makeup, and breast implants. Youth is beautiful. If you’re old, you’re ugly.
Steak and chocolate will make you fat. Avoid your favorite foods at all costs.
Fiji is better than tap water. Starbucks is better than Folgers.
Do drugs, drink alcohol, break the law – people will look up to you.
Don’t stand up for yourself and don’t stand out. It’s 1 against 1,000,000. You can’t win.
If you’re black you’re a criminal; if you’re Hispanic you’re illegal; if you’re Asian you’re a genius; if you’re white you’re privileged.
Life is short. There’s not enough time to get everything done. No one has time to make a difference in the world.
Introverts are socially awkward and weird; Extroverts are self-centered, attention-seeking brats.
People who read have no friends; People who enjoy shopping have no brains.
If you’re young, you know nothing.
If you’re old, you know nothing.
If you’re middle-aged, you know nothing.
Society lies and I am sick of it. I am sick and tired of people perpetuating this madness.
I have spent my entire life disobeying nearly every rule and standard that society has placed before me and I turned out just fine.
To be honest, I would argue that I’m a lot better off than most. I’m confident, independent, and I love myself. I’m not afraid to speak my mind or stand up for others. I don’t worry about what I wear, what people think of me, or how many calories I consume. I have morals and values and I am unyielding when they are challenged.
I believe in love; I believe in relentless individualism; I believe that our most fantastic dreams can be made a reality. But none of this is possible unless we disregard these absurd rules and create our own playbook.
Every individual is different. Society tries to corral us all into the same little cage, but we are not all sheep. Some of us need to break free from the pack and chase our own dreams, live our own lives. For many of us, being tan, rich, and superficial just isn’t enough.
Never be afraid to be yourself, to go against the mainstream. You can be more than one of society’s little minions, but you need to muster up the courage to take that first step.
Society says so many things, but society lies.
