    How weird is that?

    (But than again and sadly enough, subcultures fighting each other in the streets aren't that new to the world ... )

    It's kind of funny, til you read a little deeper. Then you get into the whole "emosexual" thing and it gets weird, and a little sad that it has to come to this sort of thing.

    Oh yeah, and the whole "Talk to your kids about Emo" thing in Utah is just dumb.

    From the comments on the article:

    This is beyond stupid. God Mexico is such a hole. Why doesn't it just fall into the sea already and save the US the trouble of invading and bring these idiots civilization? Oh no gay people exist! Grab your pitch forks and rap music! That'll learn em!


    Scientists really need to learn how to harness the power of stupid. It's the one resource we'll never run out of.

    Actually I think anti-Mexican stupidity, that also appears to be pro-imperialism, possibly pro-gay, and manages to reference rap music and pitch forks is such a specific vein that it might get a rather high return in kilowatt hours.

    I was mostly taken by the "anti-gay prejudice is disgusting and evil but then what can you expect from a bunch of beaners" hypocrisy myself,

    Am I still allowed to hate the term "emo?" Emotion has ALWAYS been a part of musical expression. Even instrumental music. The fact that there's a scene trying to wrap itself the concept of emotion rrrrrreally gets under my skin.

    Also, I'd like to add that homophobic punks aren't punks.

    quoted for truth. if you are a homophobe, you clearly only understand punk in a misled fashion. and emo is a useless term that is only good for describing a specific sub genre of music- if it doesnt share roots with say, RITES OF SPRING or SAETIA, its not emo. im sooooo sick of watered down majorlabel poppunk being called emo just because some of these fucktards wear eyeliner and have girl hair covering one eye.

    You know, embarrassingly enough, that is the first time I recognized what 'emo' stood for. Hell, I probably heard the term for a year and a half before I even figured out what it was referring to.

    haha, welcome to uh, what? 1986 or so? emo's been around for a while, it just wasnt marketing jargon until recently...

    @joe.distort: True. But nowerdays "Emo scene" has actually not much in common with the early Emocore-stuff which came up around bands like Fugazi and Hüsker Dü, I guess (music and what people make out of it in their fashion sytle etc. has allways had it's own strange ways of evolution) ...

    ugh, this again. nowadays, the emo scene (which i wont even begin with how much people using the term "scene" in non sensical manners drives me to stab) still exists in its real diy form. its just this other poppunk with bad breakdowns, glossy fashion magazine bullshit that ruins it.
    im gonna try to just let this one go...but i am bad at that.

    okay, okay, let's call it a "fashon" than, instead a scene, this "pop crap". But I know what you mean ...
  5.  (1586.16)
    cool, then i will leave it be. if only every "emo"kid would just be forced to listen to USURP SYNAPSE and SWING KIDS until their hair dye melted through their skulls, devouring their brains in the process, i would be happy.

    oh, and i didnt mean i wanted to stab you, just the shit we were referencing. we cool, duder.

    That is kinda fucked up. I mean, the "emo scene" is annoying, but a riot is hardly necessary.
  6.  (1586.18)
    This is hilarious. You want emos to go away... so you RIOT against them! Give them a reason to live! A reason to be proud! A reason to fight back! A cause! Wonderful.
