How Will Russian Children Express Their Angst???


Oh right. By drinking.

(Thanks to Slonichka for the story) NME.com: A new Russian law could make being an emo kid illegal in the eastern European country. Legislation is currenting being formulated in Russia to heavily regulate emo websites and ban emo and goth dress style in schools and government buildings. The new laws are apparently being driven by fears that these "dangerous teen trends" encourage depression and suicide.

The legislation was presented last month at a hearing held by the State Durma, where critics claimed that the "negative" emo culture encourages anti-social behaviour and glorifies suicide. Emo kids were described as teenagers who wear black, have facial piercings and black hair with fringes that "cover half the face."

Could we get some of those statues here? Maybe expand it to ban hippies, too. Pseudo-emo-hippie-activism, pheh!

Isn't that how Lenin dressed as a teenager?

its their own style, let them live their life the way they want it, and about their "scary look".. they like it, if they want to wear black, let them wear black, if they like piercings, let them have piercings, if they like their hair that way, let them choose their own hairstyle.
just like all of those girls who dies their hair blond and wear pink. no one told you to be their friends.
