    It's a simple thing - peace.

    Not easy, but simple.

    Still, you'd think more people'd be willing to put in the effort (given the alternative).

    You were never my favorite love to hate, maybe love to love, but never love to hate.

    Typical day (at work): Blazer, mockneck, chinos, Cuban cut boots.
    Typical day (anywhere else): Black t-shirt or one with some sort of graphic/slogan, (dark) blue jeans, Chuck Taylors.

    Would you consider yourself a hipster?

    In many ways I am, but I'm not condescending or into fixed-gear bicycles and micro brewed IPAs enough to truly be a hipster. :p

    My 20 year old daughter. Informed me weeks back. That she considers herself an Emo. Is this a legit thing? Or just a phase young people go through?
    You seem knowledgeable on a lot of things. So I thought you could be my go to person on millennial issues.

    Ha ha ha! I haven't heard anyone refer to themselves (with any degree of seriousness) as being "Emo" since about 2007! Ah, that takes me back to freshman and junior year of high school! :D

    I'm not sure if it's still a legit subculture amongst the young people, but it was. Basically, it boils down to listening to whiny music (Hawthorne Heights, The Used, and Fallout Boy were the big ones when Emo was big where I was), wearing dark eyeliner, and being angsty. Think somewhere between Goth culture and Punk culture. Don't worry - it's a phase mostly. But all the Emos I knew grew up into Hipsters, so... you might have that to deal with in a few years. :p

    Thanks for the feedback. Im hoping the phase passes soon. Her mom tells me, that she's been talking about dying her hair blue:eek:

    Also do you think this might be a stepping stone toward punk or goth? Those people are scary looking:eek: Not sure about the hipster yet. She might go that way.

    Though I've heard her mention listening to Fallout boy, and some others. I've tried to influence her in to listening to AC/DC or Metallica. But her response was " Thats just a bunch of noise! " So I'll just have to wait to see where it goes.

    Please, tell me anything you think most old people like myself doesn't know about young adults.

    Not necessarily something unknown, but something forgotten.

    I think I'd remind all of the older generation(s) how infuriating it is to be condescended to and blamed for all of the world's problems. For starters, we're young adults - so maybe we should be treated as such rather than as overlarge children. We also aren't to blame for everything; we just happened to walk onto the scene after most was already a foregone conclusion. Guilt by association.

    You had to go through the same nonsense, so why are suddenly Millennials (my generation) to blame for everything? Wasn't it just a few years ago that "you kids these days" were to blame for everything? A little bit of empathy and understanding.

    No, I don't think being self-identified as Emo and wanting to dye her hair is some sort of gateway to other things. I don't see what the source of concern is. She's her own person, so let her do her own thing. If that means pierced up, blue-haired, and listening to Stiff Little Fingers or Dååth, then so be it.

    Besides, who fucked up nature before you've even got here? So many things you won't get to see, simply because we've managed to destroy them before your arrival.:(

    I'm not going to mess with her about it. I had never heard of an Emo before. But after a little research it said it dates back to the 80's . But I sure don't remember it.
    I just wanted someone else's opinion outside of the household. Thanks

    No, just being (comparatively) silent as of late. However, the temptation to create one and see how long the fake takes to be sniffed out has occurred to me more than once. :p

    Just curious, read a reply the other day from a newbie that seemed like a retort you might make.
