So in case you haven’t picked up on it, I used to be an emo scene kid when I was a teenager.

That was a little under half my life ago. Strange to think I am turning thirty in a little over a month. Honestly, the music I listened to back then still goes hard, and the book I’ve been working my way through (“Sellout”) has quenched my appetite for kindling nostalgia.

However, that era of emo and scene culture looks so fucking cringe to me now. Like, big time creepy, too. I don’t know, but there’s something just a little off about grown ass men playing music to and hanging out with literal underage teenagers.

Oh, and they were evidently having lots of sex and just kinda promiscuous all around. This was pre #MeToo as well, so there was very little language for acknowledging how utterly creepy as well as rapey it all totally was. Moreover, this era coincided with the rise of smart phones that can take pictures and videos.

So, what do you do when you live in a culture that’s just gotten an extra means to view and send lewd pictures, and nobody really gives a fuck about victims of sexual harassment or assault still?
