another girl in the world

punk was not a label based on
combat boots, mohawks and piercings
punk was about rebellion and political awareness
you are not punk because of the way you dress
if you call yourself punk, you probably aren't

Because of people who generalize
without actually understanding labels
the whole point of the movement is lost.

i'm tired of people calling other people posers
i'm tired of people who think that just because
someone has money, they can't be "emo"
as if the very fact that they have a larger house
a nicer car, a vacation home...
as if this somehow insulates them from suffering

tragedy has never discriminated
why should you?

people who are proud of their own ignorance
disgust me.
how dare you.
you are thoroughly the quintessential part
of what is wrong with the world today.
