Conformity- compliance with standards, rules, or laws.
Individuality- the quality of character of a particular person or thing that distinguishes them from others of the same kind, especially when strongly.
In society I think what is more is more valuable, is individuality. Today we live in a society where society tells us, “It’s okay to be yourself, wait no. Don’t be yourself that way”. Which is a difficult way to live for many people. Every individual has a legacy to leave behind in this world.
#BlackLivesMatter Organization founded by Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza, are individual’s who noticed inequality and decided to start a beautiful moment and show insight to give each and every individual a chance to have a voice on issue that has been over looked for many years.
In our country for many years of discrimination towards gay, lesbian, and transgender people, due to their sexuality. We’ve had laws that discriminated against gay marriage. It was until a few years where these people were feed up, and decided to give these individuals a voice. To show the world they are no different as human beings due to their sexual orientation. Now in all 50 states gay marriage is legal.
We are continually breaking boundaries against conformity, and express ourselves freely. Individuality brings beauty to the world. Conformity limits individuals to unoriginal standards.
