Default Re: Why don't people like goth's and emo's?

You guys ave to remember we are ALL HUMANS. We can wear as many different sort of clothes on the outside and even have pale or dark skin, but we are ALL THE SAME.

Just because people like to wear what's considered 'different' clothes, doesn't mean they're any less of a person.

And just because 'emos' or 'goths' can express their feelings doesn't make them different. I know many of these people and I love them just as much as all my other friends.

We all need to learn how to be accepting of one another. Take a step back and really think about why you resent 'goths/emos', and if you hold the rare case of 'cutting' against them, maybe you should be trying to help them rather than making their problem worse by critizising them.

Thank. You.

I always assumed "Emo" was a slang word for a Punk, aka someone who listens to rock/heavy metal and dresses similarly to how punks dressed back in the day.

How the world has changed...

BTW... "Emo" is a genre of music, which was originally created in the Mid 80s, so the true meaning does actually come from the style of Punk rock they listen to.

B) A person who cuts themselves, usually wears black with hair covering their eyes


True, it's a stereotype, but one I've come to know I guess.
I work around the same stereotype.

I don't hate them, but I seriously dislike it when people think it's cool to do those stereotypical thing associated with emo. It's so... stupid. It's not even cool. Liek WTF.

I don't mind being friends with them if we share interests, but I don't exactly like any sort of suicidal attitudes.. I mean, if they're in a rut, I would try to help them. People around me being depressed make be sad too. D:

*snort* Sorry, but 'scary'? Really. Emos have a 'different'... view on life, but they're certainly not 'scary'.

I self-harm sometimes, but only because of my anger management. The thing is, though, I would, like, never be able to beat myself in a fight (my self-harming probably wouldn't even be considered self-harming; my skin/muscles are too tough for me to actually hurt myself very badly). I guess you could say I'm part-emo. I'm a loner, yeah, and I wear black, gray, and silver clothes a lot, and automatically I'm an emo at my school. Fwee for me. *sulks and worries about next year*

Maybe he's trying to say people are scared of what they dont know?
Maybe he's saying they are just downright scary, which is childish :)
I'm hoping its the first.

Actually, that's just heavy metal. xP

The Emo music started off as a genre of music that broke off from Punk, using more emotional lyrics, an generally talking more about the flip side of life. But now you have Emocore which is a mixture of screamo and acoustic/slow rock. But that's not the point.

I'm emo. My friends call me emo. My enemies call me emo. Tough luck.

An article came in the newspaper the other day that was basically this same discussion minus the goth part. And what one of the quotes said was that "Being emo does not me that you are suicidal, but rather that you wear your emotions on your sleeve as it were. Just because some emos are open about suicidal tendencies doesn't mean anyone who's emo is suicidal." I couldn't agree more. Being emo does not revolve around the clothes you wear, or how you feel. It's all about showing your emotions freely without acting. An emo will cry when he or she is sad, and smile when he or she is happy.

Today, a new girl came to our school, and she was standing outside the window of our English class. A classmate of mine leaned over and asked me "Can you see that ugly girl?" So I looked, and then looked back at my classmate and said "She's not ugly. What makes you think so?" And then he goes "Dude...she's emo. Look, she's wearing black skinnies and that studded belt like you."

Typical exchange.

I think it's really wrong for people to judge others by the way they look. I think it's just wrong.

    Okay, let me nip this bud. People look at Goths's wierd because, welll, the way they dress =/. cloaks, lots of piercings, combat boots =x, and some ever so wonderful huge gauges in their ears. You honestly can't say that if you see a person just walk right pass you, you woulndt say ay remark about him what so ever to your "friends".

    And with Emos, well, most of them cut themself, and other like to have sharphooks in their and be held in the air for a minutes. Its not gonna much more creepier then that =/

If they stopped boasting about the fact that they're emo or whatever, they'd be easier to get along with. Of course, I'm being stereotypical here. People can dress however they want, what matters more is the person inside. Nobody likes an egoistical goth.

Maybe if they would wash more often people could stand being near them without running.

=/ People tend to dislike "Emo" and "Goth" related people just because they're different. Everyone needs R-E-S-P-E-S-C-T or the world doesn't work right. :/

It's possible to be emotionally unstable, and not cut yourself.

In terms of stereotypes, you could say I was emo/gothic in middle school - solely for my fondness of black and my timid behavior. My hair did cover my eyes, because I was trying to grow my bangs out for God's sake :/

Actually, when I was a bit shakey on terms of mentality, I thought cutting myself was revolting. Pain doesn't make me happy, so I don't know how that would work for cutters.

It's a ******* stereotype in the first place, anyway. I'm still trying to figure out why I wanted to post here :/

People are scared and laugh at what they don't understand.
