The American Counter culture is the latest thing thats being energised by the Trump presidency. Counter-culture is a sub-culture who norms and values differ from the mainstream.

The latest heroine of non-conformist counter culture is Joy Villa who wore a dress that had the squares all excited. Like the punk movement in the 70s not knowing enough to follow the crowd and be like everyone else Princess Joy decided to do her own thing and wear a certain gùna to the Awards.

A gùna that caused a lot offence amongst the squares who ended up looking like the oldies complaining about God save the queen. The conformists who are on the same side as establishment politicians, establishment media, the Davos crows, Apple, Microsoft, all the big western media outlets they used say were establishment outlets, the conformists who line up in outrage ready to challenge the deviants who do not conform to a defined social norm.

They are so conformist they cannot even tolerate a dress.

Warning: The video about the Pistols and God Save The Queen, and the pictures of the gùna may be disturbing to those of a highly conformist nature.






So she got this in response. Feel the love. If Twitter was around for the Sex Pistols would it have looked like this. Sid Vicious is so hungry for attention. Gawd Awful etc.

.@Joy_Villa is just doing this for attention.

let’s give her some.

Counter-culture is not dead. It might just make it past the conformist drones.

.....mainstream....
The GOP have the Presidency, the house, the senate and the majority of state legislature....

How is openly supporting them contrary to 'the mainstream'. That's not the counter-culture......that's the culture.

You really don't get 'God save the queen'

Yeah. I can't imagine being on either side makes you counter culture or not "square".

How many times have we heard that he didnt win the popular vote?

Like it or not modern american counter-culture is wearing a Trump dress. Trump himself is counter-culture in the extreme. He wants to make that the mainstream culture but he is an outsiders outsider. He won the election but recall that up late Nov 8 no one thought that could happen.

That's the dichotomy of Trump supporters. It's like Trump, post victory still whining about the Government, or politicians.

If he ever was an 'outsider' (which I dispute) he's not anymore. He's the establishment.

He's 'THE MAN' now.


...and counter culture only makes sense when it's against 'THE MAN'.

But its not like the rest of the establishment is with him. He is an insurgent president and the same time is the pinnacle of the establishment.

You'd get it made to fit, though?
Looking at her, all I can think is rip!!!!!
Had an extra inch or two been given around the hips it'd have made such a difference: she has a great figure, that simply pinches and adds 10lbs.
(Well, the style is awful too, but that's another matter).

Oh, they're with him. He'd be impotent if they weren't.

You'll know they're not, when Paul Ryan feels brave enough to crticise him.

Not so sure thats the case. They didnt exactly campaign for him. An uneasy truce.

A lot of people I know think my taste is over the top so I wouldn't actually go there as regards this dress- I still though think it is extremely cool.

That's more of a dress you'd see at a KKK social than anything you can compare to the Sex Pistols.

taught she was going for a sacred hart theme but was completely surprised. People have been using that slogan on hats for a while though.
