Story Lies^3 found on poe-news: http://blog.wired.com/underwire/2008/03/anti-emo-riots.html
That article is full of shit.
Actually, Mexico is very tolerant of homosexuality.
And I have never heard anybody use the term "emosexual" before. Besides, the "darketos" (Goths) are just as sexually ambiguous.
In the video, when they ask one of the punks why they are heckling the emos, he says "because they stole our style".
they're surprisingly lively for emos. i mean, i didn't see anyone crying.
5 stars for 1:57! that was totally unexpected.

5 stars for ending with a report on a march for tolerance.
This goes from being pretty amusing to off the chart at 1:57.

Hare Krishnas save the day, yet again.
Couldn't have been made any more perfect.

Also, original Mexemo:
Stop hanging out with children that don't know how to make words plural.
Damn it, my attempts to be a jerk have come back to haunt me!!!
I am writing mexican hipster friends to explain this to me right now god damn it.
they have accomplished more today than all of emodom before or ever more
Well... I am not exactly a hipster, but I am in the music scene. And I can honestly tell you that this is beyond my explanation.
But I can tell you that I fucking love my country, because being a Mexican is a richly absurd and surreal experience.
This is all I got:
"Oh man! .... I am really embarrassed to call myself a Mexican right now. However, this kind of bullshit only happens in southern Mexico, I was born in the north.
Basically what happened is some sort of emo vs. punk/goth's battle in Mexico City. It started in the state of Queretaro and now Mexico City. I guess the punk/goth's were talking shit and harassing the emo's. So they, the emo's decided to take matters into their hands and battle it off. It got so intense that the cops showed up. But to make the story better and since the cops weren't that much of a positive contribution, a group of hare krishna followers popped out of the subway and started singing and that dissolved the issue for now.
This is ridiculous, How did you find this embarrassing thing?

well Ill be damned, spanish for "emo" is "emo"
the story's about the "emo" riot, but I find myself a bit more interested in the 1950's greaser riot at :59 seconds in.
This is the first time I've regretted dropping Spanish class.

Messing up that pompadour at around 1:00 would've been worth a night in the can.
-1 stars because the emo-beaters beat me to the....punch....

punks vs greasers vs emos, the kids are fighting in the streets, Joe Strummer would be turning in his grave
It's like The Warriors with today's silly teenage bullshit, and rockabillies for some reason
Dammit! I wish I had seen this video before it actually happened so that I could have been there to see it happen.
I was wondering where all the emos were when I went to the Mac store to see if I could fix my $%&% LaCie hard drive.

Bonus points for Hare Krishnas.
Wait, Mexico is better than America? When the shit did this happen?
All these kids are gonna sneak across the border, mascara running from crossing the Rio Grande, and steal all our Livejournal accounts.
On the other hand, increased sales of Hot Topic, Manic Panic, and Maybelline will turn the economy around.
Mexican emos do the livejournaling American emos don't want to do.
enjoy, that was funny. have one of your illegal immigrant towel boys fix you an appletini on me.
Vaya con dios, emos.
Things I've learned in the past ten minutes:
Mexico is awesome.
Emo kids are known as "PokEMOn" in Chile.
Besides punks, greasers, and goths, emo kids are also beaten up by skinheads, metalheads, gangstas, and their own parents.
In Mexico, a "town" can have one and a half million people living in it.
Hare Krishna is the best religion ever.
Mexico is not just a bunch of cactuses and sombreros. It's also a bunch of faggots and pompadours.
I just noticed that one of the punks tried to beat the shit out of an emo with a Hot Topic belt.
Wow, that made me feel like a kid again. "The Avengers were fighting the Justice League... then the AUTOBOTS showed up!!"

Every possible joke or avenue of hilarious commentary has probably been taken, so I'll just act like a jokeless sap and add my five to the big pile by the door.
