Russia makes everything illegal...
On a slightly related note, China is banning Buddhist monks in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission.

... Oh dear. Yet more prejudice.

Emo is a fashion and a music taste.

Suicide is a state of mind.

They're linked? I doubt it. Alternative, or 'emo' music, is a genre that goes deeper into feelings. Love, sadness, hate. Some teens may be more expressive than the others who listen to music about having sex with women and buying guns/drugs.

I know what I prefer. *Shrugs* In my eyes, Hip Hop and R'n'B is degrading to women. If somebody wants to be emo, let them. Self harm, suicide and depression can NEVER be spawned by something as petty as a song. It's always something to do with their home or school life, or something happening around them.

Russia, you're crazy.

Although I'm all for the freedom to express yourself how you want, I'm actually kind of for Russia wanting to do it.

I must ask; what is YOUR opinion on this matter?
I am proud to be of Russian decent.

Cheers to Russia.

Truthfully, this emo nonsense has really got to go. Its only self-destructive, and in time, once its gone, I'm sure everyone will appreciate its absence.

I got a laugh out of this after thinking back to all the legal issues in Russia already. Seriously, if a kid doesn't want to be happy let them. Not like making it illegal would do anything except force it into not being public.

IMO depression is a stage and being emo is a tag saying they're depressed. Therefore emo= stage.

Emo is just a style, jesus. You can tell the kids who just dress that way from the ones that actually have problems and aren't just trying to fit in. What's next? Ban "jock" clothing because sports players always drink?

The ban makes sense because being emo is self destructive depression, and the suicide element is what Russia likely wants to get rid of. Making it illegal would yes, be hampering on a few freedoms, but in the light of it all, it would steer kids and teens away from the depression.

People have died from this emo trend, I don't blame Russia at all for trying to get rid of it.

In my opinion, Russia needs to back off. People have the right to their bodies and minds, and no one can take that away from them. Russia making emos illegal is like Hitler making Jews illegal. And if Russia is just doing it because of the "suicide factor" I'm sure that if they took action elsewhere instead of wasting their breath then they could have prevented a lot more deaths. And heck, their ban isn't even going to stop any suicides. They might as well ban death for all the good it'll do them. What will they do to someone who tries to commits suicide, anyway? Kill them?

It makes absolutely NO sense to me.
They think that if you like the emo style, that you'll want to commit suicide. But either way, if you want to commit suicide, emo or not, you still will, whether they ban it or not...so what's the point?

Depression is a disease, you can't make a disease illegal. Bunch of bullshit if you ask me.
