Exclaim News reports that Emos in Mexico are falling prey to ALL other subgroups,“…punks, rockabillies, goths, metalheads and basically anyone who’s not emo.” More specifically, mankind as a whole.
If you got rockabillies picking on you, you’re pretty low on the totem pole.
I think it’s some kind of strange quirk of human nature to group together against anyone who is different. Or maybe it’s just Americans? Anyway, in the end, we are all different in some way. I’ve been on the receiving end of the violence, so I know what it’s like to take the long way home just so you don’t run into ‘trouble’.
So as much as I rip on Emo, I want to take this opportunity to clarify my position:
My Emo Brothers and Sisters
I, Conrad Zero, have nothing against Emo Kids. I do not endorse violence against Emos. They are free to dress and act however they like, just like you and me. We’re all free to look and act like freaks. We’re also free to be amused by the way others look and act. But keep your hands off.
The War on Emo Music
I, Conrad Zero, despise the Emo genre of music, and it’s brother Screamo. These are atrocities not only to music, but humanity.
Therefore, the War against Emo stops here, and starts anew as The War On Emo Music.
