Public Notice to Philly’s Bro Culture: Fall Back

May 13, 2013

Found at 49th and Baltimore… Not a huge fan that this playfully (I hope) seems to imply violence against anyone, but I get the sentiment and, more or less, like it.

If you’re asking, what’s Bro Culture? Let me try and explain… From my understanding, it can actually refer to a bunch of different groups specifically, but it mostly it refers to middle/upper-middle class straight, usually white, males aging from about 18-26 who demonstrate underlining (or otherwise) misogynistic, racist and/or homophobic attitudes, aside from being rather self-centered and egotistical. Men who, generally speaking, lack empathy and have had very little exposure to people outside of their upbringing. Many wear popped-collar Polos and think that women walking down the street love to hear complements yelled at them.

Again though, that’s my written-at-3:30am definition, so please feel free to throw your two cents in below…

    Great. Maybe I can put up the same poster at 4th and South swapping Bro Culture for whatever term you would use to describe the nightlife there. Would you like that sentiment, more or less?

    In other words, bridge & tunnelers.
