yeah i'm just reposting a buncha good shit from my old account for all the new peeps lmao πŸ˜‚

@vantablack I was wondering how you were coming up with so much so quickly

@vantablack I was a punk back in the 80s and we didn't have a rule book. BUT, I will say I met very very few who were racist, sexist or otherwise assholes. They were the nicest people I knew until the f(n) skinheads showed up.

@buddha_314 @vantablack Yeah, all the GenX punks I know (aside from the Nazi skinheads) are really nice folks. Sorta like how I learned that regular, run of the mill powerlifters and body builders are the kind of folks who'll empty out the gym en masse to help someone who needs to load a heavy cargo and then go back to their lifting when it's over. Just matter of fact nice people.

@perigee @vantablack Totally my experience, too. A friend of mine likes to say "Punks are nice people pretending to be mean and Hippies are mean people pretending to be nice". Though I know a lot of really cool hippies, too.

@buddha_314 @perigee @vantablack
Never Trust a Hippy or Johnny (butter) Lydon or the Clash or Malcolm McLaren ( RIP) or any punks over 50 ( most are only pretending they were punks back in the day to look cool) Mon the young team, that should be the punk mantra

@msocsci @buddha_314 @perigee @vantablack

Hah! You know what they say, "old punks never die, they just stand at the back" πŸ˜‰

@perigee @buddha_314 @vantablack that was one of the biggest surprises of my life. Gym culture is some of the most supportive people around.

@buddha_314 @vantablack yeah, skin heads killed punk. Well worth reading autobiography from Greg Graffin from Bad Religion

@buddha_314 @vantablack And then we kicked their asses and threw them out of the scene.

@vantablack you also can't be punk if you're ableist, that's just not how it works ✌️

@vantablack My corollary, you are your vote! You vote for a racist, sexist, homophobe, transphobe, you ARE racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic.
