Herd of Individualists, Wolfman Edition

The Sun:

Deikitsen “Lupus” Manley, 15, who claims to be pack leader at Brandeis High School in San Antonio, said: “Human wolves have been around a lot longer than characters in Twilight.

It gives us a sense of belonging. You gain friends and you belong and indulge your wild side.” Another “wolf” named Argus said: “We’re not to be feared.”

Deikitsen’s mum Pam said: “As soon as he walks in the door, he is supposed to take out the fangs, and lose the lenses and tail. They’re good kids. It takes courage to stand up and be who you want to be.”

He may be a good kid, but wouldn’t it take more courage, and be more of a reflection of being who you want to be, to not join a “pack”?
