Breaking the so-called taboos

All this talk about body image and lifestyle lately has got me thinking. Somewhere out there, there is some ridiculous ideal that not one of us perfectly fits. We are a diverse group, and diversity calls for re-evaluating the ideals.

So what are some things about you that make you less of an ideal lolita (in the eyes of certain people)? I'm not talking about things like "I don't own brand." I'm talking about the ideals about what kind of person can be a lolita. Do you smoke? Have dark skin? Pale skin? Overweight? Underweight? Tattooed? Dyed hair? If my theory is correct, every one of us has some so-called "flaw" such as this.

I'll start. I am not lolita because:
- I wear glasses.
- I am too thin.
- I swear like a sailor.
- I drink beer. And rum and vodka and...
- I work for my money.
- I am sexual.

This is just supposed to be for fun, so let's not all get hung up on who says what is or is not lolita. And to remind us all that nobody suits the perfect ideal image, and that is okay. Lolitas of all shapes and sizes are beautiful people.

Edit: I love you all. There's some great (and hilarious) answers in here. I'd like to think that we can be proud of how diverse this group is.
