    Russia to outlaw emo?


    by Elizabeth Bromstein
    Pouting, piercings and Pete Wentz may soon be illegal in Russia, according to the Moscow Times.


    The Russian government is in the process of drafting a law to make emo and goth music illegal, says the Moscow Times.

    "State Duma deputies, Public Chamber members and social conservatives have hammered out legislation aimed at heading off the spread of emo culture, which they describe as a 'dangerous teen trend.'

    "The Duma last month held a parliamentary hearing on a raft of proposed amendments contained in a document called 'Government Strategy in the Sphere of Spiritual and Ethical Education,'" a copy of which was obtained by The Moscow Times.

    Among other measures, the proposed legislation apparently calls for heavy regulation of emo web sites and for banning young people dressed like emos from entering schools and government buildings.

    According to the bill, The "negative ideology" of emo culture may push young people toward depression and social withdrawal, and the movement carries a significant risk of suicide, especially for young girls."
    Can you blame them really?

    Cry, Emo, Cry

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
