Oh…Hello.  Here in the tasteful offices of The Curmudgeon, I am feeling slightly perverted but not depraved.   I have been doing research on “Scene Girls” – that’s right, I said research – and…well, I feel a bit like a dirty old man.  Of course I am a dirty old man but I don’t want to feel that way.

If you don’t know what a “scene girl” is, relax, nobody really seems to know, but I’ll take a poke at them as best I can.  First came the emo girl.  Emo is short for “emotive” or “emotional,” and so they were, as they were depressed people who affected a gothy look with their (usually) raven hair pulled severely over their eyes, wore black framed glasses, and were “cutters”, that is, they cut themselves with razor blades.  Hmmm.  Charmed, I’m sure.
But the emo girls went by the wayside and in their place, the cutie-pie “scene girls” have risen.  They wear multi-colorful clothing.  Their hair is colorful too, and is usually chopped on top and the bigger the better.  They are all about diamonds, cute clips in their hair, bats, grillz, hello kitty, gloomy bear, and whoring in the non-sexual sense (I think.).  And they’ve got to have profiles on the social networks – MySpace, Facebook, Nexopia, Tagged and Bebo.

To put it in the words of a semi-scene girl: “There’s a really thin line between emo kids and scene kids. They’re both kind of over dramatic teenage kids who listen to mainstream generic pop music [which almost always sucks]. Scene kids are a more recent phenomenon and are known for being obsessed with gimmicky retro stuff like pokemon and dinosaurs. They take arty photos of themselves [and post them] on myspace and try to get a lot of friends and really crave attention.

The main difference is one’s happy the other’s not. And Scene people are all about the “scene” and go to shows and stuff.

Indeed, and now they’re taking their clothes off, and the more they do, the more they become idolized.  Now, is it just me, or do these girls look young?  Really, really young?  It’s hypothesized that the hormones we are giving to our cattle is causing big changes in young women.  Really big changes.  Baby faces with women’s bodies.  As reported in the Canadian Press Ottawa:
“Consumption of hormone-treated beef may be causing girls to reach puberty earlier than they used to.  It is “very likely” that hormone residues in North American beef is a factor in the early onset of puberty among girls in recent decades,” said Carlos Sonnenschein of the Tufts University School of Medicine at Boston.  “There is no other reason to explain it.   Pediatricians say the onset of menstruation has steadily decreased in recent decades.  The average age for a first period is now 12½, up from age 14 in 1900.”

I believe it.  I only have to look at these pictures, and then look at them again, and then look some more, to know that this is true.  I like what I see, because…well, we’ve been through that already, but I can’t help but think there is something inherently wrong with this set up.  We’re breeding an army of little Lolita’s.  It would make a good science fiction film, except it’s not science fiction anymore.  “Beam me up, Scottie.  Uh…I mean…wait a few minutes and then beam me up.”

I hope I’ve been able to answer your questions about “scene girls.”  Are there any questions?  No?   Good.  Now stop interrupting my research!
