This is a nice compliment to our post of the t-shirt with pictures of safety pins on it (an example of the co-optation of grunge culture):
A fake razor blade necklace (worn by man behind the check-out counter today).
When you’re so tough that you are compelled to hang a razor blade around your neck, but not so tough that you want an ouchie.
For girls too! (I am assuming.)
This one is a nice example, also, of the way in which we “play” with gender by collapsing traditionally distinct ideas (masculine toughness symbolized by the razor blade and sweet femininity symbolized by the heart) (see also sparkly camoflauge, trucker hats with the word “princess” written across them, and pink sports jerseys).
