    Default Russia to Outlaw Emo

    Let your balalaika sing, ladies and gents...



    Emo to be made illegal in Russia?

    New laws planned to stop 'dangerous teen trends'


    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", reports The Guardian

    The weekend saw mass protests by Russian emo kids.

    In Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, where laws are already being implemented, protestors in a march held signs saying "A Totalitarian State Encourages Stupidity".

    Dmitry Gilevich of Russian emo band MAIO stepped in backing the protests, saying: "Expressing psychological emotions is not forbidden by law."

    However, emo critics remain unconvinced.

    Alexander Grishunin, an adviser to bill sponsor Yevgeny Yuryev, described a ban as necessary, stating: "This is the first step in the public discourse."

    The moves in Russia follow criticism of the genre in the UK earlier this year, which saw My Chemical Romance fans protesting at the offices of British newspaper The Daily Mail over their coverage which linked emo with suicide.

    Russia sounds kinda paranoid about all this. God forbid kids be able to show their individuality.

    Boy, you have to love those Ruskies. They don't like something, bam, they pass a law. I wonder how they feel about the baggy draws that allow boxers to be shown?

    What's odd is that when I try to downsize that image, it gets these strange streaks through it. I generally do not like posting images that big, yet I had no choice.

    On the contrary, I think MCR are terrific. It's their fey and whiny fans that drive me bat-shit.

    I'm really not trying to nit-pick here but this rationalization is something I've always had a problem with (even when I was in high school---it's all the same except the names of the different groups are now different). Are they really showing "individuality" when they all dress, talk, style their hair, and act the same? The "emo" types say they're expressing their individuality and don't want to be like the "preps" but they're just another group that forms their identity on appearances. The main difference between the groups is where they buy their clothes. They always want to claim that they're all about being individuals and yet, you can pick them out a mile away based on how they act and how they look. Am I wrong here???

    Nor My Chemical Romance, Fallout Boy or Coheed & Cambria are emo. That's the kind of an attitude teenagers have when saying Eddie Van Halen sucks having not heard a single Van Halen song.

    Probably .

    I'm surprised emo had already reached Russia. It's been like what, 15 years? Fucking retards.
