„I could go the rest of my life and never again hear anyone whine about someone else being "emo," and it would be a Very Good Thing.“
— Caitlín R. Kiernan writer 1964
Context: I'm wondering how the new crop of teens and twentysomethings became so afraid of emotion and the expression thereof.* Did their parents teach them? Did they learn it somewhere else? Is this a spontaneous cultural phenomenon? Are they afraid of appearing weak? Is this capitalism streamlining the human psyche to be more useful by eliminating anything that might hamper productivity? Is it a sort of conformism? I don't know, but I could go the rest of my life and never again hear anyone whine about someone else being "emo," and it would be a Very Good Thing.

„I work on a TV show I love, I have the opportunity to do movies with actors I respect, and I’m in love with the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, who pushes me and excites me... There’s this fighter in me that kind of needs to be put to rest a little bit. I don’t need to be so tough to protect myself.“
