Ignore them and do whatever you damn well please! Defy convention and wear what you want, love whomever you want, wherever you want. Turn a deaf ear to the media and the culture and the busybody down the block. Just say No. Go up against the odds, defy the naysayers and the dream destroyers and prove them wrong. Tell conventional wisdom to take a flying leap into an unconventional location where the sun never shines. Break rules that repress your freedom of expression and become more fully human in the process. Defy the doctors and live. Defy the accountants and prosper. Defy the lawyers and the politicians and the talk show hosts. Be willing to be ostracized for your defiance. Go to jail if you must. Lose everything you ever thought was important and revel in all that you gain.
