  • Not much, no. I have always been very politically progressive and I've become even more progressive as I've become older but fundamentally and apart from politics, all of my values are still the same as they were when I was 12 or 14.

  • When I reached high school and met my first gay friends, I shifted my position to full support of the LGB rights.

    I studied physics, chemistry, and biology and have come to understand what the word "theory" really means and how it isn't really just an idea, that there is a difference between expressing what I call a "valid" opinion vs expressing simple ignorance. For example, the statement "I think abortion is wrong in all cases" is an opinion, and one that I can respect even if I strongly disagree with it. The statement "the earth might be flat" is not an opinion, that's just one person who doesn't know some stuff or can't filter truth from misinformation.

    So yea, I've change a LOT of my opinions over the years.

    I've also come to understand that slut-shaming is wrong and disgusting, that public toplessness should be legal and socially acceptable for both genders equally, that sex education needs to completely flip from promoting abstinence to a sex-positive system and be universally available to everyone by the early teens at the latest, and that drug addiction is a disease that should be treated by medical professionals, not an issue of personal value.

Have an opinion?

  • I don't think my values have changed so much as i try to understand other peoples values and why they think the way they do. I still consider myself very opinionated and whether i like it or not judgmental. But we all have different journeys in life and you can't properly understand someone unless you've walked a mile in their shoes.

  • I'm mostly the same, I still have pretty much the same values I had when I was younger (excluding being a very young child cause at that age you lack the ability to understand the world). I've always considered who is more valuable to me than others, what I consider good, bad, and such, it's been mostly the same

    • Please explain. I answered your question.

    • Like I’m less materialistic, I appreciate my family and friends more, I have to work for a living, my priorities are in order you know?

  • As you get older you have more to look back on. As you have more to look back on you start realizing slowly what a life means. You look differently on old people than you used to as you slowly start realizing how much history and change there is in only one person. Just that in itself is enough to change all of your values

  • I was an Anarchist/Communist punk during high school. I've become more conservative now and cannot stand liberals anymore. I blame the current ridiculousness of it all for changing me like that.

  • A little bit. My aspiration use to be get a job and start a family.

    I no longer prioritize starting a family, I'm more focused with self development and making money.
