I’ve wanted to be a Heavy Metals Shirt screamo fan for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of looking through my mom’s vinyl and screamo merch collection full of wonder and excitement. When I was 5 years old, I tried on my mom’s Orchid shirt.

Full of pride, I ran to Heavy Metals Shirt my mother to show her. I was expecting her to be as elated as I was, but she wasn’t. As soon as she saw me she leaped off the couch and screamed “No! Take that off! You should not be wearing things like that I was ashamed and embarrassed, and that feeling stuck with me for several years.
In grade school, I was teased for listening to Heavy Metals Shirt wimpy or girly music. When I was 10 years old I got a Blink 182 CD for Christmas, and I absolutely detested it. Sensing the need to obey genre- roles, I was forced to listen to this CD when deep down inside all I wanted to do was listen to page ninety-nine, and Saetia, and to be like all the other screamo fans because that’s what, in my heart, I knew myself to be.
