I understand the importance of being an individual and how people want to express themselves by wearing unique things. But who the frick cares if everybody wants to wear the same wristband. If it means something to them, then they should wear it. I think calling that 'conforming' is stupid and single-minded. What if wearing one means something different for each individual? Doesn't that make that person unique in their own personal way, even if it is not seen outwardly?
I wear an orange wristband every single day. It may not be stylish or what's "in" right now, but I wear it because it has significance to me. I'm not wearing it to stand out or to be unique. I'm not wearing it to fit in or join a fad. I'm wearing it because of what is written on the band.
I know that we judge and make assumptions, in one way or another, every time we look at another individual. When we come in contact with a new person, we look them up and down and make a presumption or conclusion about why they're wearing what, and what kind of person they are, or what they like, the list goes on and on. I think it's important not to jump to conclusions and make a decision about someone based on what's on their wrist or what brand of shirt they're wearing. There is way more to a person than what kinds of clothes people wear and what brands they like.
