We've all got our crosses to bear. I think it's a shame we feel we have to hide anything.
I don't care for being a part of the screamo generation. Some of my friends in high school were a part of bands with "quirky," excessively long names and they all had fringes and sad beards that didn't grow fully and they wanted so much to be badass but they were just some white kids from the suburbs, I could never take them seriously. I also had some friends that believed they were a part of the Crips because they wore blue and beat each other up.
