Many of us who chose to dress in an exhibitionist way are really unable to communicate well in more traditional ways. Because we couldn’t talk openly
about our deepest darkest fears and experiences, we chose another form of expression, via music, art and dress.
Its only on reflection, later in life that we recognize the reasons for the things we do when we are young. The feeling of not having a voice, or having your voice taken away from you is horribly frustrating.
