Occasionally I take a perusal through these silly teen girl/fashion community websites and on Gurl.com I came across this lovely little gem of a web comic. Rachel the Great has her own site where she uploads a lot of her quaint little comics, many of which are related to alternative subcultures in one way or another.
This one, while submitted a LONG time ago, still seems to ring true today, considering the current proliferation in mainstream fashion of skulls, spikes, and studs. I suggest having a look at it and seeing if you get from it what I did.
That all alternative cultures are full of elitists, noobz, and poseurs, but also that everyone "wears" it their own way and that doesn't make one better than the other. Anyways, I thought it was cute and still relevant, so let me know what you think!
