And here’s a quote from today’s Something Awful about Bully Targets:
Goths are fair game: After all the school shootings, the blame was shifted in various directions, including video games, The Matrix, and even Marilyn Manson. This has led to bullies distancing themselves from the Goth kids because of the fear of getting killed in a school shooting. This is a misconception that needs to be addressed. The kids who commonly participate in school shootings are not Goths. They are usually solitary loners that look completely ordinary.
This stigma of being dangerous is enjoyable for the Goth kids, and now they are becoming cocky because of the hysterical fear generated by their image. Bullies need to start beating them down again and put them back in their place, which is the Hot Topic at the mall putting clown white over their daily bruises.
Two days to Nine Inch Nails, four to Depeche Mode.
If you’ll excuse me, I have to go read vampire noveks and listen to Rasputina and Swedish death metal now.
oh man the strip is too small to read and if I zoom in on it it gets all blurry 😦
have fun at the shows
