the siren song of conformity

I wasn't going to do this meme, since a bunch of the questions struck me as dumb. But it's ~half the posts of actual people on my f'list, and I cannot resist the herd. Theoretically ganked from lady_angelina as hers was the one I copypasted from.

I've been told I'm attractive by a complete stranger
I have more than 2 piercings
I have piercings in places besides my ears

I've been kicked out of the house
My biological parents are together
I have a sibling less than one year old
