Preps And Punks........

Post by Justme » Sun Feb 02, 2003 1:04 am

Ok here is the thing.... I was reading the posts about hottopic and all that stuff and about how people say that goths and punks have bad attitudes! That isnt true unless u wanna say preps have bad attitudes too because they are all just people. I mean like some of the goth/punk people i know are the nicest people ive ever met really. And alot of preps are nice too it just depends on the person. And like I would say that I am punk... but i dont always dress like that because my mother doesnt want to be me those kind of clothes... So sometimes i dress like a prep.. All punk really is is the attitude u have towards life and everything like that.. Right? or am i wrong? What does everybody think about what it really means to be punk???

I can't say what it really means to be a punk, because I really don't care what people label me or think of me or whatever. Ok, so I do a bit, everyone does, but I don't not do things because I am afraid of what people will think of me. I will agree with you that judging people by the clothes they wear is just stupid. All that a person tells about themselves by their clothes is what kind of clothes they like. The clothes they wear does not imply anything about what kind of a person they are.

what exactly is a punk or a prep....really there is neither...just everyone labeling everyone else...a good friend of mine said, " There is no such thing as punk. People think punk is trying to be diffrent, diffrent music , diffrent clothes and being your own person. But if all punks wear baggy pants, wear shirts with their fav or some opinion and lots and lots of braclets the look the same. Looking the same and acting the same is what ppl lable preps as. So by preps and punks are under one category." So really there is no punk or prep or any other category people think up to keep one person away from another. Sorry for making this long...just my friends qoute was a big one :P

Yeah Minx... I agree with you. I can't help but think of the quote "You laugh because I'm different, I laugh because you are all the same." Yes, you and all of your friends are individuals, just like everyone else. People tend to group with people who have similar mindsets with each other, and lots of times those opinons tend towards similar dress, attitude, and demeanor. People have used that on me before, and I say to them "Yes, you are much different from the other 10 people who have said that to me." It's asinine to think that people who dress like punks/goths are better than people who dress like preps because they don't 'conform to the norms of society'.

ok this is my oppion... i know alot of people that are preps and they have this bitchy attitude and that is why i dont really like preps. I hate how the world stereotypes everyone. Just because i dress gothic doesnt mean i am goin to kill everyone i see. I hate this world on how when a trend comes around they dress like that and then they dress diffent when a new one comes along. Make up your mind. i dont know what this world has came 2 but i think people should be themselfs and not dress for what is in and not in.

ok..prep to me is someone who thinks they are better than everyone else and are killer stuck up bitches..not someone who wears abercrombie or american eagle..and punk..umm..mostly their beleifs..on the government and religion and what they do and how they act..the only reason that punk style started is cuz back in the 70's all the awesome ass real punks started it cuz they wanted to look different than what everyone else did and go against everything that was said to be right..i dunno..no one should listen to me

Damnchicksarefine... Well according to your definition I am a punk stuck in a prep's body :) But honestly, we have pretty much established (at least I think) that regardless of what you wear you can still be a 'prep' (stuck up bitch) or a 'punk' (strong relious and political views) or a generally 'nice person' (a generally nice person) regardless of what you wear. So I am wondering... what causes the garb?



For me what dictates my garb is personal preference. I like looking nice in a social setting (and I'm in college, so I don't consider class a social setting). Basically, to class I wear PJ's and sweatshirts. However, when I am going out on the weekend or going out to dinner I like looking nice.



By nice I mean clean cuts in the current (trendy I guess you could say) fashions.



Is this what makes other people decide how to dress?

Ok, so people who act like they are better than you are the bitchy preps right?



I think I got it. Thanks for clearing it up though. Because I'll be honest, I was brought up in a fairly wealthy neighborhood and I went to private school and yada yada yada... so I know exactly the type of people you are talking about. I just don't like those people. I certainly don't think I'm better than anyone else.

I honestly don't care what people think about me, I dress the way I feel comfortable. I mean I dont think I dress preppy and I dont think I dress punk, I basically just wear jeans and t-shirts with fleeces.. I dont understand people that are constantly looking at other people and making fun of the way they dress.. those are the kids that are worried about how they look.

well round in these parts, preps are stuck up fake ass bitches, and personally i cant stand them. dressin preppy doest mean you are tho, its more or less your actions that determine your personality/characteristics...not your clothes

yeah i think im a lot like partykid in that i dress in what feels comfortable...most of the time. and if those clothes happen to be in the "prep" or "punk" category, so what? being labeled by what you wear is bullshit.
