    *shrugs* people could easily write me off as one of those.
    I'd wanted a blue mohawk from age 13, back when I was raised on Golden Earring, Queen, Bon Jovi and Meat Loaf.
    Then when I 'discovered' punk I decided the time was ripe and got one.
    So yeah, I dunno, we might be able to 'salvage' some of 'em, lol.

    You can walk in to any Hot Topic a complete square and with enough money you can walk out in zips, creepers or boots, an Anarchy t-shirt and bondage gear, does this make you a punk? Absolutely not. On the other hand it might introduce you to punk and true punks and maybe, just maybe, you will be properly Infected. Posing and Punk go hand in hand and that will probably always be so, but as a marginalized community it is up to us who we embrace and who we don't. Punk is all inclusive, although some of the sub genres of this community cannot be because of the nature of the activities. As an old punk I try to be understanding of the kids who at least show interest, and try to teach and show them what I know to be Punk. Fashion should be an afterthought to the music, and the D.I.Y. and Anarchist ethic.

    i'm happy with how i look, and i look very unpunk except for the occasional band shit i'll wear. i don't wear patches, leather, bondage gear, spikes, my hair is normal colored. I don't even care if people don't think i'm punk. It's a state of mind more then a fashion to me. And most the so called punk bands li like didn't dress punk anyways. Look at pictures of crass and most the bands from that scene, and other then hair dye, they didn't dress a whole lot like so called street punks or anything. Does that mean they have less credibility? (if u answer yes, then I pity you).

    yes, nothing wrong with it but its not everything and try to ignore those who tell you otherwise either way, thats the issue though as it is in the mind literally to me, lotsa people r biased as round ere and they've taken over the scene, they should call the scene 'fighting ya friends' - narcism maybe or coopted but if u tryed to argue that u wud lose, so make the change, i guess i'm an art and music fan first before a punk fan even though i lovvve punk etc

    when the modern punk music culture started it was so anti-fashion it makes it hilarious "punk" is defined more on your mohawk (or whatever) than what you do with your life. while i sincerely love the "punk-as-fuck" look, i wish some people would realize that dressing the part don't make you punk at all. and nor does what music you listen to.

    you know if you look at old crowd scenes at 'Core shows, Punk and even Oi, the crowds are never uniform, you have a little bit of everything and it was great, nerds, squares, hippies, skaters, thrashers, metalheads, dirtheads, teddy boys, skinheads, mohawks, liberty spikers, crusts, devils lockers, cons, thieves, dope fiends, straight edgers, mods, etc... personally I don't want to preach to the choir, I'd rather pull people in than push people out.

    everyone here was at one time a poser. nobody was born with the knowledge of how to really be "punk". it is taught to you, or learned on your own.

    to say that you hate kids because they "look punk but don't know what the fuck they are talking about" makes you sound like an elitist prick. at least they are trying. i understand that the majority of them will probably drop the "scene" as soon as something else interests them, but the ones that remain will be the ones to continue our struggle.

    in fact, Contravene wrote a song about this called "Insecurity"

    So you've paid your dues and stood your ground, much longer than most have been around.
    You think they all owe you respect and should praise your superior intellect.
    I'm sick of all the token lines
    "Stupid kid has no mind"
    "He's only 14, he has no clue"
    "He won't stick around cause he's way too new"

    So you've paid your dues, but what for? Sticking around to uphold the score?
    Maybe you should give them a chance to "succeed", maybe you'll talk to them and do a "good deed"
    "She's just here to pick up guys"
    "I saw his parents drop him off tonight"
    "I've never seen them at a show before, I wonder what they came here for?"

    Your arrogance is out of control, you think you can decide who will stay and who will go.
    Who can join the club is up to you, after all you've paid your dues - after all.

    But until they too have paid their dues
    Until they are no longer "children" and no longer "new"
    Until they all agree with your views.......

    NOBODY OWES YOU!

    its called mutual respect and i will inform/not lecture a kid how it is if they know nada or no care cause even if they don't listen it may get in some day cause i give a fuck and it is important or else why would ya do it, i ain't an after the 80's individualist ie: a 'crapitalist' punk - oxy moron, its called the circle of life, think dawrin talked about that shiz

    allota punks were peered by other punks due to circumstance,

    if kids can get in, oldies can have a moan but complete apathy i will not allow cause it ain't punk - get out, or we move out and move on to bigger and better things away from 'the scene' cause we were never seen

    I won't allow the system to be the education of the refugee masses, its called survival and 'artists' are vicious beasts haha

    Punk is about being different and being yourself. As long as you are yourself it doesn't matter if you dress "punk".

    I used to be a complete fashion Casualties punkcore dude when I first started in punk, then I realized it's about the music and the ideals, not the fashion. I still proudly wear my studded vest and combat boots, but I do so now with a purpose!! \m/
