Who is this Button for?

Members of a sensitive and emotional subculture within our midst.

Worshippers of the literary works of J.D. Salinger.[1]

All angst-ridden, tight-jeaned teens with side-swept bangs covering at least one eye.

Provocative Suggestions

Ignore the judgmental, uncreative, fascistic primitives who keep coming into your life.

Never smile; it's very uncool.

Quotations

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,

Alone and palely loitering?

The sedge has wither’d from the lake,

And no birds sing.

(John Keats, La Belle Dame Sans Merci)


People come up to me... concerned... that I'll reproduce.

(Emo Philips)

Something to consider

We all need love, warmth and plenty of hugs. [2]

Notes

  1. Holden Caulfield (Catcher in the Rye) and several members of the Glass family, who feature in several Salinger novels and short stories have many characteristic emo traits.
  2. At the Findhorn Foundation[1] they believe that you need three hugs to get through the day and twelve or more hugs to thrive.
