In Soviet Russia, emo bans YOU (Sorry, I had to)

with 3 comments

But apparently, in Russia Russia, Russia bans emo. Now let’s be honest: adults have never been able to figure out what’s going on with kids on a mass scale. And any kid who tries to explain it to them isn’t trusted because, well, they aren’t an adult! I’m not saying this out of sympathy for whiny kids with hair covering half their faces, more because this simply has nothing to do with emo at all. This has to do with scene kids who hang out at malls (or in Russia, do they hang out at nuclear missile silos?) and cry into their coffee ice creams. Obviously Russia is known for some degree of historical revisionism and propaganda here, but an entire country up in arms over a fashion statement and a few attention whores is definitely worth a few chuckles. Also, is it just me, or is it ironic that a country that about a generation ago was torturing dissenters is now trying to ban scene kid garb? Waaait, I guess that’s just par for the course!

I like how Siberia is already implementing these anti-scene kid laws. You’d think they’d want music you could easily torture people in the gulags to.

  1. Points for Harvey Danger and Yakof Smirnoff references in the same post.

    Also, that seems quite silly. Silly Russia.

  2. Why thank you!

    And yeah, it’s definitely up there with US cities banning saggy pants. What is the world coming to?! Ahaha.
