If I am not forcing my opinions on others and I am not telling people how they should live and what they should (or shouldn't) do with themselves ... then, in return, I am entitled to have the same respect back - and be allowed to live the way I want, and to do, or not to do, the things I want (as long as it doesn't directly affect others) and to be what I want to be.

Instead of being put in a position where I, sort of, should be apologizing for my individuality and daring to have my own free thinking .... because a given someone (or even the majority of people) may find my traits or qualities or preferences weird, or controversial or harmful to myself , or if they consider that this makes me to belong to a minority only.

I am a 38 years old male.

Thank you.

I agree with a lot of what you have written about your privacy, personal freedoms and right to choose your own future ambitions.
So many people are just habitual busybodies or petty tyrants.

But I am very uncomfortable with your use of the words "entitled" and "respect".
I believe that nobody is automatically owed respect and very few people deserve any respect or admiration at all.
I've noticed that those with clear entitlement issues and respect agendas tend to be those who least deserve any type of admiration or respect.

does not impact on you
Thank you for this. But if it impacts on me ? Then that means I do not have the right to do how I want ?

Ok. But my question still remains even in that case. So if my decisions or actions impact ONLY on me - but in a negative way, then I do not have the right to do as I want ?

Not necessarily 'worrying'. Let's say - I was curious to see other people's opinions on this. Yes, a student forum is still a valid place to ask.

your actions can indirectly impact others too. voting for certain politicians, refusing to social distance, etc.

Yes of course you have the right to do what you wish. It's your life after all, only you are in your body.

Being yourself and being unique SHOULD be encouraged it's ok to be yourself and NO one should stop you from it just be you that's what makes you special...NEVER be ashamed of being weird

What, specifically, are you referring to? You've made an incredibly vague post so it's very hard to ascertain whether or not to agree with you.

If you are not negatively impacting on someone else, and you're not breaking the law, then do whatever you want and be whoever you want. I think that's about as much as I can comment on such a non-specific thread.
