I'm So Tired of All The Clones

It seems that everywhere I look nowadays, people are following that damn 'emo/scene' trend. It's sickening, it really is.

I see all the guys wearing their all black, their super tight skinny jeans, having their emo or scene hair. God, even the poses in the pictures are all the same! A shot from above. The mirror picture. It's all the same.

And the girls. Their heavy raccoon eyeliner, the black eyeshadow. Sometimes another color. But always alot of it. That SAME choppy haircut. The same picture poses too.

And you know what the most sickening thing about it is? People actually find it attractive. It's 'sooo sexy'. They have 'awesome hair'. Blah dee freaking blah. I'm sorry, but I fail to see the appeal in having everyone look the same. It is in no way, at all, attractive. I think they all look the same. I can't tell them apart. Nor do I want to even try, quite honestly. And many of the clones claim to be original. There's nothing original about them. They're just a copy of a trend.

I don't, nor will I ever, claim to be 100% original. God knows I'm not. But what I can say is that I've stayed true to myself. I've never become one of the clones. I don't have the trendy haircut, I don't wear the horrid amounts of make-up, I don't wear the skinny jeans. I've retained a sense of individuality.

Maybe I'm all wrong about this. Who knows? Maybe the people actually feel comfortable and feel like themselves when they dress like/do their hair like/wear the clothes of/pose for pictures in this trend. But you know what? I don't care. Maybe I should. But I don't. They all look like clones. A mindless little robot doing the same exact thing that everyone else is. It makes me want to gauge my eyes out.

This will probably offend alot of people, considering I've seen quite a few people like this on GSB. I couldn't care less. If anyone gets pissed off at this, my response to them is: I'd rather gag myself with a knife than be another clone and be anything other than myself.

No one can be 100% original in their style. I'm not. But at least I'm not 100% identical in it to anyone else either.

My advice to these clones is to just do what suits you, and if that's to continue following this trend- go for it, but stay true to yourself if you know who that is.

If you lost yourself in trying so hard to be this trendy emo/scene person, all I can say is to do what makes YOU feel good, and eventually you'll find yourself and become an individual again.
