Creation,

Society often tries to regulate our thoughts and behavior…its a form of control…a social control.

We don’t realize it often but it’s a very sneaky way of getting you to do what “allegedly”everybody else is “choosing” do or else you are deemed “different.”

Examples……

I hate coats and often don’t wear one in the winter and people in different cultures wear complete covering in the summer..society considers that”odd” and although there is no law being broken, since we don’t mold into the wearing a coat for winter or wearing less clothes in summer controls, we are “different.”

Social Controls shame those who don’t live by them or accept them.

Examples……

I’m loud, I ask a lot of questions and I’ve always embraced multicultural music and books. As a young Black girl, I was “odd”. Girls were to be soft spoken,seen and not heard and set into the cultural boundaries…
