Dandies in Congo, emos in Iraq, electro-hillbilly truckers in Japan. No matter how hard life can be, people carve out original ways of living.

I don’t appreciate the use of terms like “sub” or “counter” unless you’re referring to people who are hell-bent on a path of destroying themselves and everybody else along with them. But if you’re just talking about people who have adapted to a lifestyle unfamiliar to you, but it works for them and they can live in peace with their fellow man who doesn’t live the same way as they do, why call them “sub” or “counter” as if they’re inferior or a constant arch-rival or antagonist?
