We just don't follow standard conventions, everything is open to exploration, even stuff that some people might feel squeamish about. It's all worth taking on its own terms.
TP tends to be pretty sane too... there's an easy-going stability there that most people can pick up on. They just don't know how to reconcile it with the exploration of some areas they find quirky or different.
That's a biggie. I looked a lot more vanilla and conventional when I was younger and kept everything in... even though inside I had quite a surreal landscape...my ability to keep the bulk majority of my inappropriate thoughts/comments within the safety of my own head.
Edit: Oh. And to answer the OP's question: I quite enjoy being odd. I feel the most comfortable when the people around me don't know what to expect from me. Weird, huh.
... I never want people to think they have me in a box.
I like being seen as the low-key "wild card."
