Re: punk rock and PC culture
That's the price you pay for the addiction to a non-essential substance.
Got to admit chisox, that made me cringe.
How do you even know he's addicted?
I smoked everyday for years and wasn't addicted in the least. I did it because I enjoyed it.
Are you saying habits shouldn't be accomodated if they aren't essential?
What about public breastfeeding? That's certainly not essential these days, and it does offend a sizeable population. (At least in the US)
What about essential habits that places go out of their way to limit or restrict?
Like eating, drinking, bathing, sleeping, procreating, etc?
I guess what I'm trying to say is, your use of non-essential is problematic.
I don't think breast feeding is a good comparison given the completely different nature of the two.
Isnt this the same argument conservatives use on everything in our country? For example: If we allow the gays to get married and thus create a fluid definition of marriage, next they'll be demanded polygamy or bestiality.
So now you're coming down on bestiality? You're determined to completely fuck up my Friday nights aren't you?
But you want a better comparison than breastfeeding? OK, here's one ... dancing.
You've already admitted that it's a violent activity and bystanders can get hurt, (and speaking as someone who detached a retina in a moshpit, I wholeheartedly agree with you), but I'm pretty sure that you've been championing the right to dance since this thread began, we've agreed that given its own area the risks are minimised, what we haven't said is "get the fuck out of the venue you've paid to get into and do it in the fucking street" you seeing my point yet?
