Social Norms are just the idiots' way of saying "If it's not this way kill it with fire".

So what if meeting the one you love unconditionally through unconventional means isn't considered normal, it doesn't change the fact that it's been proven to work. How else would internet dating sites make the truckloads of cash they do? Except if it's through a dating site it's "normal", which is bollocks.

Honestly if a late-teens girl wants a boy who they could fit into a pampers size 6 or 7 baby diaper and dress in children's clothes, she's either a closet pedophile or isn't interested in a healthy capacity. Either way there are psychological issues.

Blood and damnation, if Beiber didn't already have a truckload of bodyguards he'd have been snatched up by some dirty old man already. He's like Miley Cyrus: no talent whatsoever, but is famous because children who don't know what music is thinks they're the best thing since 1080P.

I reiterate, the average teen girl has immense psychological issues nowadays if they'd rather have a baby than a man.

I'm pretty sure girls who have crushed on boys who may look younger then their age have worked out too. I mean, call me crazy, but I have some friends who are 16 but don't look it. Strange, I know, I mean here we are thinking Beiber was the only one but apparently there are more out there. And a lot of them have had plenty of successful relationships. Hell, one of them has been in a relationship for around a year now and both him and the girl are pretty happy.

But I suppose you gotta take it into context. Teenage girls liking an insanely rich, young and cute pop-icon is abnormal, crazy and totally ridiculous.

I like Jack Black...

You also met your "boyfriend" over the internet.

And that is relevant because..?

It's not considered a social norm.

Neither is crushing on Jack Black

Given the large number of long-distance relationships that exist today, it CAN be considered the social norm.

Also, Jack Black makes me laugh. That's the basis for me liking him. I wouldn't really call it crushing.

If you pulled random people off the streets and told them "I met this guy through a video games website and we live in separate continents"... majority would say it is abnormal.

Not like being abnormal is necessarily a bad thing though. People thought slavery was socially acceptable for hundreds of years.

Oh, I had assumed that you were crushing. The post you originally replied to was talking more along the lines of crushing, so I assumed that you liked him in that way. My bad. =)

I hope not. If that's the case then the majority of teen girls need to grow a brain.

Seriously, at 16-17 the hormones dictate the strong, funny, fun, tough, cold, etc. guys are the primary interest, not a man who'd be the stay at home mom while the wife wears the ***** in the family.

Beiber, Jonas Brothers, Twilight, all overpopular and trashy to the point of losing brain cells from watching/listening to them, how can teen girls nowadays be so damn stupid?

Makes me glad I'm gay, or I might have to put up with their comparing me to Edward Cullen or something else that would make me want to rip out their ovaries with a rusty spoon.

Seriously, out of all the women in the world I think Nic is the last sane one left. That's only because I haven't heard from our friend Danielle in a while.

I pity the modern male, as all he's got to choose from are women who idolize the scum at the bottom of the barrel of the Music and Literary industries... Aside from Zeth, but it's probably one of the many reasons he's with Nic in the first place XD

Well a lot it's because of peer pressure obviously.

A lot of teenage girls I know seem to be madly in love with Johnny Deep or Justin Beiber. Although they may feel that their feelings are genuine, let's be honest the likelihood is that they seem to think liking stuff like Twilight, and Beiber gives them a sense of identity amongst their friends.

What is really ****ing me off is that so many young people seem to have no concept of individuality and all seem to be stuck in this follow the crowd mentality.

What's so special about individuality anyway? Some sense of pride to numb the pain of rejection? Whatever you've got to tell yourself, but you got to wake up one day and realize, you either stop whining and accept you're alone and probably will always be (some people do that and it suits them and more power to you if this is already the case) or change yourself.

If I'm comfortable where I stand, I don't give a **** if it's where someone else stands. If it's that way, at least I'm not alone. Just because you got some sense of "individuality" doesn't mean you're special or better than everyone else.

Here is what makes me dislike Justin Beiber,

One, his songs are repetitive. They are not good, (there could be worse though) and then they get stuck in my head. Which leads me to dislike his songs more.

Two, he doesn't write his own songs, (which aren't good anyway)

Three, In most, if not all, of his videos and recordings there is voice-correction, (there are some where you can actually hear it). But a lot of famous singers use it, which just gives me more respect to people who don't.

that was my two cents.
