Emo's a threat to Armenia's genepool

Postby Phlegm » Sat Dec 11, 2010 5:54 pm

Following the suicide of a 15-year-old boy, police in the Armenian capital Yerevan are cracking down on adolescent fans of emo music, a derivative of punk rock that is known for angst-ridden lyrics. Armenian officials contend that emo aficionados undermine social stability. But some psychologists and rights activists caution that hauling tattooed teenagers off to police stations for questioning is a strategy destined to backfire.

Emo -- a term derived from the word “emotional” -- music traces its origins back to the punk-rock movement of the late 1970s and early 80s and the indie rock groups that followed it. Often tagged as a close relative of grunge music, it is long on expressing primal emotions, particularly about depression and loneliness, but without the sugar-coating of a pop ballad.

In the West, emo music has entered the mainstream, but in Armenia it remains on the fringe

I would think that trying to stop people from removing themselves from the genepool would be a greater threat to it than letting them go ahead with suicide.

Only downies, the autistic and other assorted retards should be allowed medical intervention to cope with their faulty genes/environment, we should still have the right to keep them as pets.

i know youre being deliberately offensive, or trying to be anyway, but what you say makes no sense, its obviously not something youve given a lot of thought to, and if you actually believe what you said, then its a fair assumption youre not really capable of doing so, which is some quite delicious ironing really.

debate
Realise that mind cannot be satisfied but always seeks more, thus increasing unwholesomeness and wrong doings.
