Okay, I am by no means a fan of suburbia, but this problem thrives in the city as well.

The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol

but you know, I remember girls being like this when I was a kid. While I was still wearing cabbage patch kid t-shirts at age 9, they were wearing tons of makeup, revealing shirts, etc.... and they got all the attention, and I hated them for it (plus I got teased over my clothing).



So thought I'm not convinced that things have changed that much, I just think that it's more in-your-face now...

I once pissed somebody off by telling him I'd rather give a Marylyn Manson CD to my kid than a Barbie.



Yes, I see it too. 11 year olds dressed like the bimbos I have to sit next to in liberal arts classes.

Heh heh. That's good stuff. I think on balance I would rather give anything to my kid as long as it wasn't a Lil' Bratz doll. They make Marilyn look wholesome. More like Lil' Slutz.

Would universal school uniforms be the answer? The kids in the UK all wear school uniforms.

I like school uniforms but that would not address the issue of this particular 7-year-old and the clothing she wears when she's at home or with her friends and neighbours (namely: us).



The living-vicariously-through-your-children thing can be taxed to its logical limit by clothing like the kind this kid wears sometimes.

What can you do? It's the parents' choice. And parents are morons. It's a fact, look it up.

School uniforms aren't the answer because the minute they are out of school, the girls hitch up their skirts to obscene levels, take off their jumpers and have their shirts unbuttoned really low..etc etc.

What about compulsory straight-jackets until the age of 18?..

school uniforms may be great for kids while in school though. they'll have sensible shoes so that they can run around, it's harder to demonstrate status (though people always find a way), and less wealthy kids have clothes that are appropriate and functional for school (uniforms can be subsidized or are low cost anyway). i think that school uniforms definately have their place.



at home, a kid can dress however the parent allows, but having a dress code in the form of a uniform may help with that functionality issue in regards to recess and play (fitness).

If the skirts were ankle length they would have to roll them so many times to get the skirt above their knees it would look very uncool. I guess the shirts couldn't have buttons... That still doesn't solve the problem when they're not at school.

Ive heard that towards the beginning of her career someone asked her in an interview if she listened to bands like the Sex Pistols and The Ramones, and she didnt even know who they were.

I dont like Avril. She contradicts herself all of the time and its just annoying. Thanks to her there are 10 year old kids running around at Hot Topic trying to find punk clothes. I suppose thats better then them shopping at Abercrombie & Fitch, though.

Avril is angry because of the carbs. She said so herself.

Is it just me? Or does anyone else find the term straight-edge annoying?

I dont really mind straight-edge in itself, but it annoys me that its now a fad to be straight-edge. Most people ditch it when they turn 21.

I think the name is stupid, too.

We had none of this straight-edge stuff when I were a young punk. We were boozing, pill-popping hoors and we did not care.

I started seeing straight-edgers in the 90's. There's something very un-punk about it because nihilism and health-consciousness are not usually intertwined but what the heck. If kids need a label for liking good music and NOT getting strung out on meth then that's fine.



Like Emo and loads of other labels it just sounds so self-conscious.
