I'm a 6'4" punk man. I wear the spiky leather, the mohawk, tattoos, combat boots, etc. Today I noticed all the black people I passed kept looking at me suspiciously while most other people look once or twice and go about their business, I kept getting worried glances. I'm not i some kind of weirdly segregated society like LA. I'm a quiet guy, don't bother people, so why all the weird looks (other than the obvious)?

Mostly, yeah. But I'm too old to change and I like the clothes.


That actually makes sense.


>>4959385
I show people I think differently by refusing to dress down. It's not about a uniform. It's about wearing clothes that are useful, stylish, and will possibly help me defend myself. If it were legal, I'd wear a bullet proof vest. That kind of thing.

I'm not that tall, but I'm a little large and I still scare people sometimes. I imagine being a punk you get this from people often.

I try to put people at ease by consciously relaxing my shoulders, wearing a hint of a smile, looking down and smiling slightly after making eye contact, and thinking of nice things so my eyes don't look scary. I really don't like making people feel uncomfortable. Hard mode is walking home alone and there's a woman walking by herself. Pretty much impossible not to intimidate them slightly.

Also the skinhead thing, some people get those guys confused with punks. It's just ignorance, don't pay it no nevermind

No, I tend to look at everyone a little when I'm out and about. I listen to music pretty much all the time, so I need to be more aware of my surroundings with my other senses. Today I was wearing mirrored sunglasses, so nobody could tell where I was looking. And several black people were giving me multiple worried glances, but everybody else just did their normal "I'm on the bus" thing. I don't have a weird prejudice or fear. This doesn't happen to me every day. Either they knew something everyone else didn't, or they were worried about me for some reason.

>>4959648
Fuck you, poser. You haven't achieved an iota of psychedelic gnosis. If you had, you'd have realized that I am you, you are me, any comparison is insipid, and our individualities cannot be contained within a single concept. We need to cleanse those doors of perception some more, "Chad".

Because it's illegal to protect yourself in Canada. You can be charged with assault for fighting back against an attacker. You can't even OWN a handgun, let alone actually move it outside it's secure storage if you do manage to somehow get a restricted gun license. Even rifles and shotguns need to be locked up at all times unless they're being used for hunting. It's illegal for civilians to own and wear any kind of amour. It's technically illegal to go out in chainmail, though I doubt anyone would actually call you on it. Oh, Canada, We stand on guard for thee- just without any access to weapons or armor, apparently.

Yeah, but so is most of life. In my case, it's more utilitarian. Combat boots are good for any weather, and so is a good leather. The spikes make me harder to grab and hold onto. And I'm wearing my life on my skin. The mohawk is for my grandfather and all the other natives whose land is still being fucked with. But punk isn't really any one thing. And anyone who tells you what it "really is" is probably wrong because so many different kinds of people have called themselves a punk.

Horrrorcore rap is a thing. Actually the funniest thing here is ironically just about every gothish looking person I've seen in the last several years where I live has been black. Like, every single one of them. Dyed hair, Tripp kind of clothes, those spooky queen of the damned type eye contacts, like without fail the person looking halfway to being a punk or goth here is black. I'm not sure why this is but I suspect it has something to do with people like Tech N9ne and the fact white people have all been a bunch of faggots since 9/11seriously one of the last times I even saw a white person looking like this was close to a decade ago and he was a fucking furry and a brony remind me later today and I'll see if I can find the picture

Try hard? People don’t even read the thread they just throw buzzwords at the wall.

OP you seem real chill and utilitarian. People react cautiously to things outside their experience. I went to a show recently, AJJ in Austin, and it was absolutely not my crowd, I was on edge the whole time (big crowds do that anyway but this was extra). They weren’t so much punk as trashy spineless hipster kids controlled by their political ideology, so I had to try and hold back my disgust and then judgement that follows. I probably wouldn’t have reacted to you like that, but my point is people gauge their environment by the people in it, when I went to that show, I realized I was not where I was supposed to be, they probably got a similar feeling looking at you, wondering if they were out of place or were you out of place.

This. OP announcing his look and how people treat him for it comes across like a teen going through a phase, and trying to make it seem like only black people look at him funny just makes him seem bigoted. He's probably from a small town in the south or midwest, because he clearly has no clue about how ethnically diverse the punk scene is in "weirdly segregated" LA. Guy probably sees one black person a week and they probably only see one gangly freak a week, and each stares at the other because they both live in some lousy backwards part of the country.

Why do so many people who dont involve themselves with punk music or culture and never go to punk shows and play video games in their Dorito dusted caves always act like they have it all figured out.

All my punk friends come from broken homes and abusive pasts. They do speed all the time and find solice in their community which has an anthem of discontent and rage fueling their lifestyles and world view. Id rather be a punk then a soundcloud rapping memer normie. Eat shit 420chan. Gotta keep punk and 420chan seperate. These opinions are entry level high school shit about "punk uniforms" "punk is dead" "punk is for retards".

Their is so much great new punk music coming out but your boomer asses wouldnt know because it involves going outside to a show and revealing that youre a heartless cunt to people who actually stand for something.

Tbf though her brand of Trump support is the brainless but not overtly racist antiauthoritarian kind from people that are smart enough to realize somethings wrong in the world but dumb enough to believe the first charlatan who comes along to tell them why, they don't actually buy into the culture war aspect, and they aren't fascists the way his fully conscious base is, most conspiracy theorists just want something to do after work, and they aren't really wrong about a lot of things, they just get the big, big picture wrong

It is wild what a sharp turn the fringe in general has taken to the right though I will admit, again the same kind of misplaced righteousness anger mixed with ignorance that fuels the far right
