i agree with this. i dont think you should try and squeeze yourself into a stereotype. Like kabalos said, just be yourself.
If you want a mohawk, get one. It only really makes you a poser if you are only getting a mohawk in order to "appear" punk....
dont do it for fashion. dont do it because everybody else has one or says so
do anything you wanna do. do the things you wanna do because you want to do them
If it will make you feel pretty then do it. If you don't like punk tell people if they ask. Or wear a Tshirt that says "Fuck Punk" or something.
You do what they did in the middle ages. The Ordeal. Boil some water place a stone in the bottom of the boiling water, reach into the pot of boiling water and grab the stone. Bandage your wound, a week later take off the bandage, if its healing alright you are a punk, if its infected and not healing well you are a poser. :p
