Neotenized homogeneous privilege results in frenetic subculture self-identification. Also retards. [Jul. 31st, 2006|02:43 pm]

I thank burntcurtis for the phrase "White Identity" to describe Orange County's many fucked-up subcultures: goth, skinhead, mod, swing kid, straightedge, rockabilly greaser, emo, "punk," neo-hippie, club kid, etc. Until he pointed it out I hadn't seen our collection of permanent teenage culture victims as a consequence of overwhelming whiteness, but it sure makes sense.

I was reminded of that this morning when it was brought to my attention that a skinhead had figured out how to work a computer.

I can remember exactly when it was important to delineate between skinheads and racist-skinheads: 11th grade. Right after the ceasefire in the great battle of "Rancid sounds like the Clash," but before the war of "True black metallers are atheist not Satanist."

I also must thank you for the phrase/tag "19forever." I got a serious chortle out of that one.

Is(are) there a Forever 21 franchise(s) in the OC?
