Quote: Susie Scott on Conformity
“Rules”: This includes what the teacher pinned on the classroom notice board, but also what most of your friends regard as “common sense”.
“Question”: A question raises doubt. Doubt helps us to see through constructed realities.
“Constructed”: This refers to social constructs. While state governments can be overtly oppressive, many “rules” are more invisible and passed off as self-evident “norms”.
“Want”: To question rules does not necessarily mean to break rules.
I thus end with these words:
I first learn the dress code, then I decide whether to follow or deviate.
