I never wanted to be accepted by such shallow and stupid people.
Emmm... you never wanted to be excepted by teenage mall prostitutes? yeah, good for you!
most people don't understand how important these things have become for teenagers to be accepted.
Excellent point, Poland is changing fast and people want to show off unfortunately many simply can not afford to show off and some will do anything to be excepted.
But these are teenagers, insecure, stupid, shallow, goofey kids, there is not much difference between the Mall kids here and the things they do and that of other countries. After all it is all the same music, clothes, identity they use.
They are under much more pressure than I was when I was a teen, nobody had anything when I was a kid, so there was simply not that kind of pressure but I can see it through the televisions, magazines, blasted with billboards and having the "perfect life".
