PSA: Ignorance is Piss.
Heaven and Hell knows the crap alts have to put up with on a daily basis from individuals outside the subcultures. Some people just aren’t tactful as they should be towards alternatives, or anybody for that matter different than themselves. If you’re feeling guilty, good. If you’re not getting it yet, keep reading.
Inquiries from others regarding lifestyles and styles aren’t always malicious, however people need to know where to draw the line.
YouTube and Tumblr user Toxic Tears was gracious enough to put together a video that sums up the common questions people ask, and the common statements/actions people say and do that completely ignore the concept of thinking before acting.
If you are a repeat offender in taking part in these activities, it would behoove you to not treat individuals different from yourself as spectacles, but rather as human beings who just favor different things. People in alternative subcultures do not exist for entertainment. This is how people live, so be a dear and respect that without, as Toxic so put it, being an asshat. This has been a PSA. Cheers.
