A new Russian law could make being an emo kid illegal in the eastern European country.

Legislation is currenting being formulated in Russia to heavily regulate emo websites and ban emo and goth dress style in schools and government buildings.

The new laws are apparently being driven by fears that these "dangerous teen trends" encourage depression and suicide.

The legislation was presented last month at a hearing held by the State Durma, where critics claimed that the "negative" emo culture encourages anti-social behaviour and glorifies suicide.

Emo kids were described as teenagers who wear black, have facial piercings and black hair with fringes that "cover half the face", reports The Guardian

The weekend saw mass protests by Russian emo kids.

In Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, where laws are already being implemented, protestors in a march held signs saying "A Totalitarian State Encourages Stupidity".

Dmitry Gilevich of Russian emo band MAIO stepped in backing the protests, saying: "Expressing psychological emotions is not forbidden by law."

However, emo critics remain unconvinced.

Alexander Grishunin, an adviser to bill sponsor Yevgeny Yuryev, described a ban as necessary, stating: "This is the first step in the public discourse."

The moves in Russia follow criticism of the genre in the UK earlier this year, which saw My Chemical Romance fans protesting at the offices of British newspaper The Daily Mail over their coverage which linked emo with suicide.

That's racist.

This is like the morons in the late 80s trying to ban metal because it apparently encouraged murder, rape and suicide.

No shortage of stupidity in the world that's for sure.

hopefully the law spreads to other places soon, people who dress like that are usually stupid, cocky, ugly punks who are going to get their crap pushed in sooner or later. Ugh, i'm not a fan of emo in the least....

I don't like emo people, but if they are really depressed wouldn't this just make them want to kill themselves more? They aren't exactly the conforming type.

they're not really depressed... they're just sad people. In my opinion, Russia should register all emo's and provide them with guns, like a desert eagle or something. That way no more pussing out on suicide.

In San Diego being emo is "in"

It's not full on emo, but all the younger kids now wear super tight jeans, have long hair, some *** shoes, and usually a florescent colored shirt. It's like a branch off emo, just colorful instead of black. Suuuuuper ***.

perhaps next they'll go for burning idiot suburban kids who think they're "hip-hop" at the stake. although i doubt that'd garner much support in the western world.

isn't that where the emos come from too?
the suburbs are the root of all evil in my mind.

I don't really like laws that try to stop people from dressing a certain way, because you have to ask yourself when will it ever end...They dress differently obviously, but its clothes, unless there is a distrubing image on their shirt let them wear whatever.

you wouldn't need tv. njx1 through a billion could argue with itself about the fact that it does the exact same thing everyone else does. and then njx would say. you're being ********... and the other njx, knows that the njx thinks the same thing. it's world peace... hence the nuclear fusion and **** into food.
