PostSubject: Armenian police target teenage rock cult   Mon Dec 27, 2010 5:35 pm

Link

When police officers arrived at 13-year-old Masha's home, searched her room and inspected her computer, it was not because they suspected her of any crime.

Her offence was simply to be a devoted follower of the angst-ridden punk-rock subculture known as 'emo', in an ex-Soviet state where pressures to conform remain strong.

"It was offensive and frightening at the same time," said Masha, a schoolgirl in the Armenian capital, clearly upset by the experience.

Police in Yerevan have been conducting a campaign against the capital's small but controversial emo community since the recent suicides of two teenagers who were rumoured to have been emo fans.

They claim that the subculture represents a threat to young people's welfare.

Officers have visited schools, searched pupils whose distinctive clothing marks them out as possible 'emos', and mounted surveillance on public places where young people gather.

Several fans have been detained for questioning, despite the lack of any specific legislation against the musical genre or its followers.



The story continues at the link.

I know it isn't about us pre se but it's got to be frightening to be under surveillance for wearing what you wear or listening to what you listen to.

"We're doing it for the children." That mentality sometimes gets impractically annoying.

Just so you know, that is a parody site. Somewhere there is a disclaimer stating as such.

It is indeed a parody site, but all parodies make fun of something right? It's making fun of legit websites called godhatesfags.com and godhatesamerican.com, both are by the hate group Westboro Baptist Church. Godhatesgoths.com is essentially the same as these other websites, it's not really exaggerating when it makes fun of the things that are said on the legit websites.
