But, sometimes, bringing up the elephant herd in the room makes it easier to keep others from talking about it…
Monica is such a nice little conformist.
Refusing to interrupt someone else’s party with shouting matches over existential matters impossible to prove one way or the other isn’t conformism, it’s just manners. Being politically correct isn’t an attempt to fit in (in this particular case), it’s trying to find something fun to do that everyone can agree on.
Outside of this context, it could be seen as being a conformist, but still, some people have hair-trigger tempers and you never know if that nun outfit would press a berserk button, which would ruin fun for a lot of people because of yelling and arguing; even if you don’t take part, it’s damn near guaranteed someone would leap to your defense, and then they’d have themselves a pissing contest over religion or whatever and drag other people into it and from there everything goes downhill.
All Monica is doing is trying to prevent that. Call it conforming if you like, I suppose, but I still disagree.
Agreed, Faux. When in doubt, take no chances.
