Using myself as an example; if an outside observer were to classify me into a subgroup, they would note my ethnicity, the sweater, spectacles, and textbooks and immediately identify a classic nerd. I, however, vehemently believe that I don't belong into any subgroup; that I'm a rare oddity whose general disdain for mainstream media liberates me from the confines of any subgroup classification. The fact that I have bad eye-sight from voracious reading, get cold easily, and enjoy classical music shouldn't detract from my argument, right? (Ehhh, the fact that I used the words "voracious" and "detract" in the same sentence...)
Does anyone else see the irony in the saying that "We are ALL unique?" Or the sentiment that one may classify his/herself as a nonconformist...like everyone else?
