    Like when they write long essays on why they're feminists and post it on forums...

    Precisely.
    But that's my view, gender equality.

    I'm not gonna go round putting homosexual avatars up everywhere just coz other people be doing it, oh hey guys im pro-gay let's do something retarded like put homosexual gifs and avatars everywhere to show how pro-gay we are.

    Unreal how some people made a u-turn with their thoughts just to fit in with the majority.

    Not everyone who supports homosexuality changed their avatars did they?

    And they certainly weren't shoving it down anyone's throats, as I'm hoping your egalitarian posts were not doing too.

    I didn't say everyone did, I'm just saying how ridiculous a lot of people are these days.

    Yeah looks classy.

    Usually I hate videos like this. But there's this other one that's amazing (it's not spoken word) but I can't find it. It's all animation

    Maybe they haven't discovered who they are yet. So put themselves in the majority to see what they do.

    I think it's because society is increasingly balkanised. When strong differences between groups of people become too pronounced, people tend to cling more strongly to an in-group.

    Are we done with the days where everyone has their own personality ?
    Are we done with the days where people did things and acted in ways they wanted to?

    Society is a sheep majority - i.e people following a crowd even though the cause they are following doesn't interest them, but they do it just for social reputation. People doing things to fit in even if they don't enjoy what it is. People getting a typical university degree even though they want to do something completely different. People saying they are for or against certain movements just because others around them are.

    Another example is on TSR too, many people going to uni these days , then posting on TSR saying "I don't really like clubbing but im going to make friends and still haven't made any, i hate life" You're not going to make friends at a location that doesn't interest you, and why the hell should you hate your life. Rep scavengers looking for those green gems or upvotes on reddit or followers on twitter and isntagram, admiring them like it's something important. Or just sticking up for a certain cause just because it's what the majority supposedly believe in.

    There is something called environmental, social and cultural influence, but it never has been as personality erasing as in today's world

    Holy sh1t why is everyone living their life under a bubble of social acceptance?

    Peace late.
    can you marry me please?

    It's less about being a sheep and more about liking/believing/enjoying the things that make the sheep, sheep.

    If your sheep friends bring something your attention and you then like it, your not trying to or consciously becoming a sheep, you just happen to like that thing as well

    I need to change my personality slightly, because otherwise I just end up getting hurt and people think they can do what they want with me. I actually just did something which I never thought I would do

    I'm a girl, but I created this account when I was undergoing a phase where I thought I was male and born in the wrong body. David Gandy however made me reconsider everything and now I can happily report back that I am a 100% straight girl.
