This story is both disturbing and amusing.
When being "Indigo" is not dramatic enough! When emo just ain't makin' it!
When Goth is just ordinary!
YOU! Yes you, can run with the pack and become a werewolf!

Teen Wolves Descend on San Antonio High Schools

Honestly, how dumb and self indulgent can kids and modern America be?
Parents, you might want to pay some attention here!

Still, I guess it beats the Young Republicans Club!

Thank god I'm not in high school anymore.

Lol. It's Twilight gone overboard.

Seriously though - if they're just expressing themselves, doing well in school and not hurting anyone than I'm not too concerned. Fads. Gotta love them.

I agree...mostly.
But I do think we are seeing a generation raised entirely on TV, the Internet, games etc.
I think too many of the American public can't tell reality from fantasy anymore, and believe anything is possible.
While this might sound good, everything is not possible, and it seems like the perfect state for a docile, easily controlled population. One that wallows in self indulgence, and as long as those indulgences are met, will cause no trouble and ask no questions.
OR, maybe I'm just an old grouch.

Sub cultures are mirrors to society.

To be honest I'm surprised it wasn't Vampires but I guess that's been done to death by the Goth.

They are simply using pop culture to express there angst and disillusionment with society.

Yes its probably unhealthy in some ways but its no worse, than the mod's and the rockers, Goths or even Emos

I guess that I had it fairly easy in high school, because I was a metal-head, and there was an entire subculture already in place. Hey, didn't Ted Nugent used to have a fur tail of some sort hanging off of his butt way back when? Tell that to some teenager and once you get done explaining to them who Ted Nugent is, they'll probably spend an hour trying to fabricate some BS about how that has nothing to do with them...

To the youth of America: That's so 1980s...



P.S. What's next? Zombies?

As soon as one becomes mainstream its sucked into the media, and then a lot of sheeple jump on board.

Every few years you get a group of young people realise that all these other groups have sold out and they start there own, only to be over run by more sheeple.

Rince and repeat.

The splintering of the youth counter culture is a symptom of the media and our society.

Look like emo with a little bit of furrie mixed in. Poor kids.

Whatever happened to not wanting to belong to any group?

Man school has changed so much since I was there.

Star for you...that was the way it was in my day too. What's funny is that these kids are doing this to express their "individuality", all the while not realizing that they are not expressing individuality, as it appears to be a group effort.

It's just kids being kids.
Seriously, in this day and age, with all the cultural mishmosh going on...kids raised in no-parent households because both parents have to constantly work because of this suck ass economy...being deluged by the media with images of what they "should" be like...succumbing to peer pressure to have sex younger and throw caution to the wind...
It's no wonder many kids are struggling with a cultural identity crisis.
I don't think this story was news-worthy, but at least these kids, following a fad or not, are trying to be, at least on some level, true to themselves.
If they outgrow it, great.
If not, great.
Let them be who they want to be...that's the beauty of being a kid.
Agree with it or don't; but picking on them and attempting to suppress them only makes things worse and leads to other, potentially dangerous ways for them to blow off steam, express themselves and find their own path.
Is it silly?
Well yeah, sure.
Was the stuff you were into when you were their age considered silly by your predecessors?
More than likely.
Remember, when we're young, the last thing most of us want to do is be like our parents were to us.
As we get older, we forget about that and begin doing the same thing to the next generation.
Let the kids be kids.
But if I catch any of them digging up my yard, they're getting a rolled up newspaper to the face!

I'm glad you mentioned it. Not many are REALLY aware of this, it is not only subcultures though. It is in a lot of civilized processes of society.

( it fits perfectly with the statement, you can only kill conspiracy, with conspiracy, just create a hype.)

Dude, there's an entire horror culture.
Of which I'm a contributing member of.
Don't knock other groups just because you don't "get it".
You're obviously a jock guy, right?
So, you belong to a group mentality as well.
We all do, whether we like it or are aware of it or not.

Hahaha, teenagers just keep getting dumber and dumber.

I've only been out of HS for about 4 or 5 years, and granted I went to school in a very small town, but these kids would have been taunted relentlessly.

Do they genuinely believe that they're werewolves? Do they run around the halls sniffing one anothers rear ends?

To the horrible people who unleashed the plague of Twilight upon the world: Look at what you've done and hang your heads in shame.

Come on!
Stop with the "can't judge anything" routine.
Of course we can judge things! And if we find this silly, so be it.
I'm not supressing them, hindering them, or hurting them.
But I reserve the right to find them silly as heck!
