    Default Against Emo Subculture

    What a pile of shit. It's pathetic. I watched that shitty single from lostprophets last night in a bar, and it actually infuriated me. A load of emo kids sitting there like sacks of shit getting shouted at. They're all lazy bastards. They mope around like fucking retards all day because 'no one understands them'. It's pathetic. If I had choice over the society in which I lived, I'd cull and rehabilitate the motherfuckers.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    In America, the peak of emo died out about four years ago. Is it spreading over to the UK now or something?

    Being misunderstood is so cool.

    ^You mean them?^

    They are not the same, emo is being misunderstood, tight clothes for both sexes, and wearing black.

    Scene kids can be happy, but they are half emo/half preppy+ loads of makeup.

    What would happen if rednecks ran the US.

    There's also a satire about it, which I am yet to see.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    Well, there are Emo subcultures... the mopey, depressed, anorexic, androgenous, wrist-slitting Emo culture has been replaced by Emo Punk, which is alive and well.

    which reminds me of how whenever i visit home away from college (back to my old high school stomping-grounds) i start to think i'm gamma

    then again maybe that's just stupid kids being stupid kids. with their phases and all the rest. especially those percievers!

    (scratch that last point. lefty/ENFj is a great counterexample!)

    You know I had to think about it, but more than seeing her not supervising him (which in a sense she could be, because he's out in life persuing love which can be a form of the persuit of health, and isn't scheming meniaclly or withdrawing) is that she's not being dualized. You know what else is that I have a hard time believing an ISFP would go out like this since their se is secondary and not primary.

    unless maybe paired with beta Fe, i don't understand how "emo" or "scene" or whatever is going on there improves Se much. if i had an ESFp daughter, i'd anticipate having to tell her to put more clothes on before going out, rather than taking the "scene" get-up off

    i think Smilex was largely right when he described gamma falling somewhere between "power-play" and "vanilla".
    if gamma are related to theta waves then they're "drowsy," in terms of their consciousness.

    wow i must be really gettin old because the description of emo kinda reminds me of people in the late 80's who wore black, smoked cigarettes, and listened to the smiths. these people later morphed into goths.

    those who are easily shocked.....should be shocked more often

    It's funny how trends always regress.

    Smiths > 90's goth
    Rites of Spring > 00's emo

    emo subcuture is quite fine, well, compared with our infamouse 'Pokemon' subculture, the new urban tribe.
    You can mix some of emo, a bit of goth and then just go to the disco to dance 'raggeton'.
    Then you got a POKEMON.

    need picture??

    beta NF's correlate the highest with emo - especially INFp's. "dramatic expression of emotion"....I find it somewhat pathetic, but everyone needs to find their place, and some feel more left out, or w/e, and due to probably an inherent independence, they create an absurd image to get out their sense of confusion and pointlessness, and receive the attention they yearn for in this indifferent world.

    on second thought, it's fucking pathetic.

    That above post was reallllly cold.

    Being a ISFp, I value feelings a lot, and the right for people to express themselves. I don't think emos are "fucking pathetic"

    They're confused teenagers, give them a break.

    sorry. I am all for freedom of expression. just when analyzing the roots of something like emo, it seemed kind of....."pathetic"....but diversity is great. I'm confused, and have been so in the past, so I think more. Whatever; no more judgements, to each his own.
