    why would the people who do the graffiti that we do be called "writers" when people who do political graffiti, or mark their turf with gang related graffiti, or who do designs in caves thousands of years ago not called writers??!!??

    why waould we be called writers and not them??? they have rights too, we dont have to discriminate

    well actually what im getting at is that they write too!! so why are we called writers as if they dont write ..

    I suppose you call the people who write racist comments in bathroom stalls writers also? do you call the people who draw swastickas in highschool bathrooms writers? Hell no they dont deserve the honor of being called a writer, we are writers because we display a part of our soul and mind on the street, that is why we are writers and kids with markers are not.

    well kids with markers hitting up tags making a name for themsleves are called writers actually.

    and what about people who do political messages (not racist or nazis), or egyptians doing symbols in pyramids... are they less of writers than us?

    why would we be called writers when they do it to (like were called writers as if others arent) unless you can think of an answer why wed hold the title of writer more than them, or if you disagree and think they are called writers.

    and i dont know about displaying a part of your soul and mind (unless your writing literature or putting message in a mural) how is writing your name displaying a part of you "soul" it just show that you like to paint your name for whatever motive... thats another topic thohg1...

    why the fuck are you so hung up on stupid shit that doesnt even matter? that is why all your fucking threads get closed...

    who cares, it is a fucking word that kids started using years ago to describe what they were doing, writing their names around the place. the word stuck, and has become part of the graffiti vernacular, hence people involved in graffiti call themselves writers, and those not involved probably have no idea what the term means.
