I don't hate them... they do scare me sometimes, in a way, because they sound like they could kill people, if they don't do so to themselves first.

However, I do stay away from them.

I'm with you, I don't hate them but, scary at times they are. And yes, I know at once I said I was emo, but truthfully, I had no clue what it really meant, I just thought it sounded cool at the time. But the worst thing about 'emo' is the wrist cutting thing

That's just a stereotype. Cutting is not an activity exclusive to "emos".

How does one define emo anyway? A lot of the time, it is defined as somebody who is quite open to self-harm, which is frightening.

I personally wouldnt mind going on a few dates with some cool Goth Girls..its always to try a little bit of everything if u know what I mean..plus i like that girl from UnderWorld and she kinda seems goth..Oh she's so..

Anyways...Emo's well..they're always looking for attention I suppose,..they can cry easily..and yes they tend to do krazy stuff when they're depressed like cut themselves...oh this is so sad.

That's the main problem with this thread, and I said that from the start. The terms "emo" and "goth" are two terms that are extremely open to interpretation. If I tried to explain it, I'm sure someone else would quote me and tell me I was way off or something.

Self-harm is something that is usually (and often incorrectly) associated with "emo" culture, in the same way that paganism/Satanism is for gothic culture.

I have a question for people who are saying they're afraid of goths, but they don't dislike them.

What's so scary about the gothic image? It's dark and aesthetic in [most] general gothic terms and situations. To me, the gothic image can be really beautiful, if pulled off correctly.

How can you not look at this and think that's a beautiful image?

It's aesthetic, dark, lacey, and mysterious.
That's how I view things when I hear the word "gothic".

Then again, I'm one to become fanatic over gothic architecture.

I really don't find anything wrong with Emo and goths...other than they are kinda unstable...plus some of their attitudes is kinda...well...the ones i met are like this (AND IM NOT SAYING ALL EMO AND GOTHS ARE LIKE THIS!)
They say they have it so bad on them, and it could be the smallest of things...at the same time really big things...
Like if I wanted to be Emo and/or Goth (And im not!) then I'd have a reason, but SOME of the Emo and Goths i meet don't really have a reason..Its like their dad yelled at them and punished them and the decied that they have it so hard...but then some might have an abusive dad that beats them...but in my eyes...that still doesn't give them a right...But hey Do-Eacha-Zone

The same reason people wouldn't like gays, or other minorities.

Because they find them different than the "norm", so they fear and shun them.

Simple as that.

I think the way people view emo's/goth's is why others are so scared. I'mm not going to lie but I like to dress in the close because it fits me best but I'm not emo. Emo's are usually ass-holes if you approach them it's happend to many people including me and the stereotype just continous to grow :P

...because people are too judgemental. I'm not emo or goth, but people think that how you look completely reflects your personality. If you're a person who judges someone by their looks, then I honestly think you have problems.

I think goths are kind of cool!! People who are afraid of gothics probably think those kind of people are "not normal" and probably kind of scary so that could be why they dislike them. Just like what Disruption says.

You should just ask someone why they don't like goth's or emo's.

Personally I don't mind goths, but emos without a depression problem need to get with the program and realize you only live once and should be happy.

I don't mind either the one thing that I do mind is the fact that they mostly cut themselves and that doesn't solve anything. I understand being depressed and such but honestly cutting yourself doesn't help in the least.
