BE YOU. Be passionate about the things you are passionate about. Don't shave off pieces of yourself to fit in a box because you'll NEVER achieve perfection...it doesn't exist. So you might as well be happy! Do what you love and screw what others think! :)
I think this is cool like for anything. If a boy hurt a girl's feelings and didn't apologize then all her friends agree to never go out with him unless he apologized or something. This should be both ways, and be handled with class.
