China Pictorial (English)
Times have changed from rejecting weirdoes to embracing them, from avoiding weirdness to seeking it, and from celebrating conservative values to developing open-mindedness. Today, weirdness may refer to a unique style, character, and even great talent, without concern for fitting in. Some even pretend to be weird as a way to seek fame and fortune.
Weird things can become precious social resources. Respecting different characters and passion for creation of anything and supporting any person determined to pursue their own dreams is only good for society. New Weekly March 1, 2021
