Emo

You gotta fight for your right… To be emo?

Apparently Mexican riot police have been deployed to several areas to protect citizens from anti-emo riots and demonstrations. And apparently there is a heated cultural controversy over….
Whether or not people should be emo.

Does this make you feel like losing all faith in humanity? I know it tempts me to.

Having front-page headlines on dead strippers and the Iraq death toll on page 8 was one thing. But I haven’t felt this ashamed of my species since it cast more votes for an American Idol than the leader of the free world. If the kind of pants you wear or way you comb your hair is something worth rioting over, real current problems like war, disease, and hunger do not, I want off this planet, please.
