    That doesn't make much sense... usually people rebel in order to be themselves, and conform while not being themselves. I suppose it can be reversed, but... it would be unusual.
    It's an obvious contradiction. Two conflicing concepts that society is constantly telling us at the same time.

    Most people tell me they have never met anyone like me. Watching this video confirms it.

    I'm typically inhuman, albeit not necessarily inhumane.

    I will be more typical than I am now by 2030.

    Maybe.

    Funny how they only fuse one gender and ethnicity to make the "typical" portrait.

    It's safe to say every human is far more typical than they are atypical. It's like the glass half full/empty situation, except the glass is 99/100 full (typical), and 1/100 empty (atypical). A lot of people choose to focus on the tiny differences they possess, over the vast similarities. It's all down to perspective.

    So?

    They could have fused both genders and many ethnicities. Proportionally represented them even. I'm pointing out that they chose not to.

    And instead we have a picture of what a typical Han Chinese male looks like.

    Within a subculture of people my age from my hometown, probably not typical. From the perspective of all of humanity, I think I'd rate typical.
