Excuse me Urban Outfitters..

Many of us have seen this design whether on t-shirts or people's skin. Most people know of the band Ceremony and this particular design that is connected to them.

Well Paint It Black face book posted a photo that was screen capped from the Urban Outfitter's store :

"Damn, now Ceremony's getting bootlegged by a major corporation too?"


What are you thoughts?

Shaming within an Idealistic Subculture as "hardcore"

It's incredible to see how far along this subculture has lasted into the modern era. What is incredibly grotesque is the derogatory terms that still persist. Women have constantly received a bad rep depending on where they step their foot to who they talk to in hardcore. Girls do it to girls. Boys do it to girls. When a truthful situation with actual evidence is shown, how is is plausible that the victim continue to be victimized?

If we take this out of the subculture it is still wrong. The fact that it is in a subculture as "punk/hardcore" that has redundantly screamed the words of equality and solidarity among each member is being spit in the face when people slut shame and blame women for being themselves.

When someone opens their home to a fellow band or fellow hardcore aficionado regardless of their gender, they must be respected equally. It is their property and it is THEIR HOME. The problem here is a fellow member of the hardcore subculture has opened her home and her wallet to the band Blind Justice, only to receive the news that a band member had invaded her personal items without consent. They also pee'd in her laundry [who does that? unless you hate them].

Unfortunately, the reaction of this situation is pelted questions of her being raped, derogatory words such as "slut", and negative words like "worthless". How it is logical to defend the band member who disrespected someone that opened their home and bully the victim through anonymous question on tumblr. It only proves that people in this subculture still view gender to have double standards in hardcore.

If I had painted nude portraits of myself and hid them away only for it to be stolen by people I invited to my home and hung in their surroundings I would feel violated. I decided not to share it. I decide who to share it with. This applies to everyone.

I could say so much more right now, but if you are against me - you disgust me and you are no member of the subculture. You would be the social climber in my eyes, not her.

 So glade this girl is getting so much coverage. In 2011 I searched the web for girl skateboarders and not many had good coverage it was sad. I found her and she was this cute tomboy and now i'm like WOW she had grown up so much!
