Dear teenage me: when you grow up, you will wear glitter and feathers and sequins anywhere you damn well choose. You will dye your hair partly pink and paint your nails to look like the shells of beetles. Will people look at you funny? A few, but you will be secure in the knowledge that you are having more fun than they are. And every so often you'll be spotted dressed thusly by a small child and you will make their entire day.

Hi. We're the cool kids now. Yes, you can sit with us.

I think a lot has to do with the transition from "being forced to be in a society where ALLTHETHINGSYOUMENTIONED were weird and outside and shunned or worse" to "I can make my own damned social circle of people who think these things are awesome and will bring more awesome into the circle"

I can't remember at what age I started to grok how much this shift was a part of my own teenaged trauma, but I know it was well after college...
