Yup. I would never do anything or believe in something just to make me popular.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/16/04 - 6:13:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah...for instance, I don't drink alcohol or use drugs, but last weekend I was around lots of people who did both and I didn't give in even though I felt that they thought I was strange.

Of course. Lots of my beliefs are not popular at all. I don't drink or do drugs, I will refrain from having sex until after I am married, and I believe in treating everyone equally. Most of the students at my school hated gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transvestites. That really bothered me. They're still humans. I will never let popularity dictate my beliefs.

I agree with CRYN OUT and porpoise, lots of my friends don't do drugs or drink. Some times when we go out they try and put pressure on me and it can be really hard. I stick to my guns and use a lot of drugs and alcohol anyways.

So very much so, when I used to be coerced to go to church all the girls hated me cause I had piercings and detested what I wore and how my hair was, the leaders even pulled me too the side every week and told me what I was doing was not the right thing in christs eyes. Bah mormons *rolls eyes* Preach to be christ like but treat people who look strange like crap.

Also my friends drink and smoke, I stopped doing that a long while ago and refuse to get back into it.

What if your number one value *is* to be popular?
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/19/04 - 4:33:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
ofcourse, nobody is going to answer no to this, even if what they say is untrue
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/19/04 - 4:39:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
I stick to my principles, even though it's really hard at times. I evaluate them often, too. I couldn't give a rats ass if they make me popular or unpopular. I certainly couldn't care less about people who think the fact that I don't drink or do drugs is weird. I have bigger things to think about. So no, I wouldn't change my values on the basis that somebody else doesn't like them, I'd change them if I decided they weren't right for me anymore.

You're right, createauser, though someone will now do it just to spite you.
I'll go a route other than a straight-forward "Yes," though. When there is a conflict of values, I prioritizes them, and everything else being equal, the more productive one for a given occasion may be the popular one. If I'm sitting around drinking beer in a sports bar, for example, I'm unlikely to confront someone about his excessive use of the term "g--d---," though it would bother me.

I'm a vegetarian, and people make fun of me all the time. I figure, F 'em all. I'm gonna live 10 years longer than them!
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/04 - 4:08:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I wont sacrifice my values just to make a few "friends"
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/04 - 6:35:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, lots of people don't like me for standing by what I believe in, but I wouldn't want to be friends with them anyway. I've already tried that, and it sucks.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/04 - 6:37:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh my yes. I was very unpopular when I supported the Iraq invasion. Also when I supported the construction of a huge damn in my country that the population was split over. Basically I've had to support rather unpopular views loads of times.

"What if your number one value *is* to be popular?"

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!

Then that would be very ironic if it got in the way of your popularity.

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 7/27/04 - 2:20:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't really have many morals, whereas a lot of my friends do. But I still don't care.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 7/27/04 - 3:49:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I beleive something is right, I'll stand up for it. Even if people hate me for it.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/12/04 - 2:50:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes I do Even if Gay people think I hate them
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/04 - 11:18:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, and some people in real life don't like me because of it..
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 5:39:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes i do, i stand by my values not matter what
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 5:43:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, it seems dishonest and cowardly not to.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 5:51:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes.
I don't drink, do drugs or smoke.
I belive in no premarital sex.
Those two are big hurdles, because no one believes me or they laugh and call me a straight edger.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 5:53:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Lostmarbles: you think 10 extra years is really going to give you enough time to F'em all? Wow, there must not be that many...

I think UL hit this one dead on. No one is going to admit to it, and it's rare in life when you can just call it black or white. Most of the time yu have to decide which value is more important.

17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 6:11:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I don't even want to be popular those preppy popular people can get raped up the ass a thousand times for all I care. One thing I really hate though is when people judge people just by their looks without even taking the time to get to know them. Even SOME popular people can be nice, but most of them are stuck up whores. And I'd know this because I used to be popular.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 1:24:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Popularity doesn't matter to me.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 3:49:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
if i wanted to be popular, you think i'd be spending my friday afternoon on here???
