Carla: Why do those teenagers have to dress like that? Don’t they want to fit in?
Donald: Maybe they feel marginalized and they’re showing their feelings of alienation through their clothes.
Carla: That’s just a bunch of psychobabble. Nobody is treating them like second-class citizens. They’re choosing to set themselves apart, to make themselvesoutcasts.
Donald: Maybe they don’t feel they have the same access and privileges that other people do because of social class, religious beliefs, or other factors.
Carla: Nobody is shunning them. They choose to live on the fringe of society. They need to stop making themselves conspicuous and integrate into society.
Donald: What if they doubt they’d be accepted?
Carla: That’s ridiculous.
Donald: Would you want one of them as your neighbor?
Carla: Well, I…well…
Donald: I think I’ve proved my point.
