Another quote that i like is: "You laugh at me because I'm different, i laugh at you because you're all the same."

That's probably my favorite quote of all time just because all my life I was stared at, whispered about, laughed at and made fun of because my right ear looked funny, because I have short arms, because I have 8 fingers instead of 10. All my life I would see someone staring at me everywhere I went and in my head I'd think your just like every other person in socity and me, I'm special because I look different, so I always have loved that quote

Hey cool! That's such a positive outlook. I actually really hate that quote, but with your connotation it actually makes sense.

Yeah, I don't care much for that quote, I think its over-used for people who don't even deserve it. But you, brokenanarcist666, make the quote sound much better. 





I don't know, I would just prefer to be known as a weird person in general, so.

Rose- what's a creationist?
(I can't flame without knowing... lol j/k.)
Rose is away for the weekend, LegolasBuzzgirl, so I think she'd forgive me for answering your question.

Creationists believe in the complete creation of the world and everything in it in six days as described in the Bible.....as opposed to Evolutionists who believe in Darwin's theory of evolution and the gradual adaptation of species into the life forms that exist today.

If Rose doesn't like my explanation, she can correct or elaborate, but this should get you pointed in the right direction.

Thanks, Frodomyhero, Legolas Buzzgirl, MyFrodo, and, of course, Yeux, who I have already "talked" to on this thread. (Sorry if I missed anyone else who commented on my post.) All of you are very sweet and I appreciate your respect for my beliefs.  I know they are quite different from most of societies (well some of them, not all I know). 

Yes, Yeux is exactly right about what  a creationist is.  There are varying "degrees" of creationists.  Some, as myself, believe in a literal six day creation.  Others believe that God did create the world but that each "day" in the Bible is millions of years.  Others believe that God "started" the world and then evolution "took over" (I know these are not the best defintions but I am quite sleep deprived from my trip.) 

I am more than happy to answer any questions (preferably by PM) but I honestly do not want to get into any debates.  There is a reason I don't post on the "Evolution" and "Religious Discussion" threads.  Let's just agree to disagree and respect each other about these things.

Do you realise that the title of this thread is actually Gong against the grain? Hmm. I shall inform a Moderator.

Rose, it doesn't bother me that you and I share different beliefs. You're  a great person and that's all that matters.

Ah- so a creationist is fundamentalist. Kinda. *Shrugs* You're fine with me whatever Rose. (btw- I'm Ruth or answer to LBG if that's not remembered- lots easier to type than LegolasBuzzgirl!)

Yeah- we're going against the grain with our spelling too!

Thanks for letting me call you Ruth, Ruth.    It is easier to type. 

That is too funny about going against the grain in our spelling, too. 

If by fundamentalist, you mean a conservative Christian, than yes, I guess I am one.  There are many different definitions of "fundamentalist."  In college I was taught that a "fundamentalist" is someone who is a five point Calvinist, which I certainly am not.  On the other hand, I have also heard it means "Someone who is devout in their beliefs and follows their religious teaches closely" which I do.  So, I guess I will leave it up to you whether you want to classify me as a "fundlementalist."    Either way, glad I am okay with you.  The feeling is mutual.

Hi, girls!! I have been reading some of your posts and find them pretty interesting. In my case I wouldnīt say I go against the grain... I donīt care in which "direction the grain goes", the only important thing is to be honest with myself, and so I try to be consistent with my thoughts and feelings. If they go against the grain or not, it doesnīt really matter to me.
As Iīve said it is not about being a rebel, it is about being myself...

By the way, it is good to see you around Rose, it has been so long without meeting on the forum  .

What other ways are there of going against the grain other than dress, music, religion and attitude? Any obscure ways?

I suppose speech. I have a Yorkshire accent but don't really use it unless I'm dossing with mates. So that's really going with the grain isn't it? Lol.

Thank you for the definition of creationist, Rose.

Hmm, I don't know if there are any other ways of going against the grain, speech probably is one though, some people use their own sort of 'street talk' that they've invented so thats going against the grain really!

I never noticed the misspelling in the thread title before!

Ah, interesting topic, and interesting answers, everyone!

Well, I don't think I'm really 'going against the grain', even though some people have told me I do...  I feel perfectly normal. I dress the way I like it, wear as much makeup as I feel comfortable with (which is usually non at all), and I the things I love to do. And everybody around me does so, so I believe that must 'normal' 

There was a time when I felt like I was going against the grain in every respect of my life, but now I have become what might be called more 'realistic', and seen that after all the way I am isn't so unusual after as I thought  The main reason for that is probably that I have got to know many special, unique and very unusual people. Compared to them my life is absolutely ordinary!

Just some examples:
My sister and her boyfriend used to live on a house-boat in Richmond (London) with her boyfriend, without any comfort at all. They started to make street-music and play in Pubs, and not to work in a 'normal' job like at a random office. They did not do it because they weren't capable of doing something else, but because they found it hard to live a 'normal' life in a flat, without what they called their freedom. Oh, and before anybody suggests this, I want to clearify they were no tramps, they just had a different life-style than anybody else. (Not that I have anything against tramps, but that is just not what their life was about). I can assure you, they were happy that way, even with all the difficulties!

I have some friends who stopped university for a term just to travel Europe by being street-artists, and that way gain enough money to stay at a cheap place for a night and get enough food. They are obsessed with the middle-age, so they sometimes dress up that way  for an ordinary day

I have relatives (brother to be precise, yes, it seems to be something in the family ;-) ) and friends who chose to live and work in a 3rd world country.
Others are writing a book or are actors at a theater, another one wants to become a priest (she is not much older than myself).

To me, these people are the ones who are going against the grain. And yes, ell, compared to those people I am absolutely not going against the grain. But I don't mind, I love my life!

Littledaydream- your family sound so cool. I'd love to live in a house boat. The water sickness would probably snooker me though. Lol.
