• Those kids who hate everything that is popular and make themselves like things that everyone else hates in the hope that it will make them stand out and be original or unique. The kind of person who instead of jumping off a cliff if someone else did, would jump off a cliff if everyone else said it was a terrible idea.

    Not to be confused to with nonconformists, who choose their own tastes uninfluenced by others.

  • An anti-conformist is a pseudo-individual who thinks being non-mainstream or part of a sub-culture is automatically an individual.

    Examples include some (but not all) members of many social outcast subcultures such as [emo]s, [goth]s, [juggalo]s, [bronies], [btard]s, [geeks], [new atheist]s, [metalhead]s, [stoner]s, [hipster]s, [Ron Paul] fans, [SJW]s, even [Scientologist]s.

    Ironically anti-conformists are more conformist than the majority of normal people, and are just as bigoted as the stereotypically cool or popular cliques such as [jocks], [preps], [cheerleaders], [sorority girls], etc.

    Try arguing that the [Phantom Menace] is better than the original Star Wars at a Sci-Fi convention, and you may be treated like a heretic in medieval Europe. Try telling a metalhead that you enjoy a few [Lady Gaga] songs and youll get a similar result. Or ask a hipster to try watching any movie which isnt foreign, indie, arthouse, etc and hell tell you its crap without even watching it.

    Some subcultures started out as something original, but nowadays are often a manufactured image people adopt for negative attention - like the [jock] who buys his clothes at Abercrombie and Fitch, a metalhead will buy his tattered jeans and black T-shirts at [Hot Topic] yet still claim to be non-conformist.

    In short theyre essentially to normalcy what the Punisher (an anti-hero) is to Superman (a hero) - but an anti-hero is still a protagonist no matter how much it denies it.

  • people whom do not do things because of the media or poplurety and dont whant to be described as one steryotype for they every one is differnt and they do not feel they whant to be compared to the rest of the sociaty some times thes gets confused with genras sutch as punk, emo, and goth but some anticonformist belive them to be in this genras at ther true meanings
