I understand where you're coming from, but I don't think there was any allusion to a social conspiracy, nor were we suggesting we tell women what to do. Because all of us happen to be male, we can't make observations about anything that doesn't pertain to males and manly metal music? I can see where there would be some oversight however.
There's plenty of people, male and female, that were capable of rising above the crowd, but our problem is people who are capable of getting there but haven't quite made it. I think ANUS has succeeded in philosophizing to males, but for some reason there's a startling lack of females. Well, not so startling, actually. But for the exact reasons why: I have no clue. Is it because, like you said:
women do not respect themselves, are stupid and need our manly guidance.
Who really knows. Males can't say, because they're pretentious, chauvinist pricks, and women can't say because they're stupid materialistic bimbos, apparently, but I was originally unaware.
True femininity has nothing negative about it whatsoever. It's unfortunate that certain negative qualities are characterized as feminine, though, and some of those are actually emphasized in our society.
My point: we need to cross that gender divide. It doesn't take a lifetime of study to understand what's taught here.
Aside from the whole gender/'self-respect' schism, any suggestions that would be made would, in fact, be useful to people who like to try new experiences. Instead of getting a tattoo because it's so "new and exciting," and would appeal to the 50 or so people in your lifetime who see it, point at it and get a laugh for 2 seconds, why not spend a day in a sensory deprivation chamber? It's not socially amusing... hmm.
How many parents do you know that don't mind it if their kids get tattoos? Outside of the lower classes (who's parents often have tattoos too, and where it can be considered a great compliment to have some names or faces of your family members tattooed on your chest) I don't know of any parent who will take lightly that their kid got a tattoo. Parents know that tattoos represent certain cultures and most middle class and upper class parents do not want their kids to become part of the lower class culture. I think it's more likely that middle and upper class people who get tattoos at an early age are rebelling against their parents instead of getting too much freedom like the OP suggested. If they really had such a bad upbringing then they would never see the error in their ways and they'd likely never grow up to make $50,000 a year either. Instead they'd live in trailer homes or be strippers still angry at their absent father or/and alcoholic mother.
There's too many good people who are enamored by the 'neo-bohemian' hip lifestyle. The parents just think it's because their kids are creative and artistic, that they support their awkward and hasty decisions and "quirky" behavior. It might just be more prevalent in California though. We're less civilized over here, and about to be poor as fuck.
Most of your metal idols probably have tattoos.
As the old saying goes: Smash your idols.
I live by it, and it's tattooed on my collar bone in calligraphic writing so I won't forget.
