why are emos picked on?
Because people are dumbasses. They believe all the rumors/lies people have made up about them which is wrong. Here are the real facts about emos -
Emos are VERY misjudged. People believe the stupid lies/rumors that the haters have started. People need to get their facts straight and get to know them before they judge them.
Here are your true facts on emos -
There's nothing wrong with them at all. They're not all attention seekers, only the posers act like that. They're not weird, scary, evil or anything like that. A lot of people don't know the true meaning behind emo as a style. A lot of lies have been started about it such as emos cut/are depressed/are suicidal 24/7. That's COMPLETELY untrue. Suicide is something that should be taken seriously no matter what and has nothing to do with ANY stereotype. Cutting/self harm is an important matter that needs to be tended to ASAP. It also has nothing to do with any stereotype. Depression is a MEDICAL CONDITION. It has NOTHING to do with stereotypes. a lot of people have depression issues. That's something that should be taken care of by a doctor.
~As I've already stated, cutting/depression/suicide has NOTHING to do with being emo or any other stereotype. Cutting is a serious matter that needs to be handled ASAP. Depression is a MEDICAL CONDITION and a lot of people have it, NOT just emos. That should be treated by a doctor. Suicide is something that should ALWAYS be taken seriously no matter what. It has nothing to do with stereotypes of ANY KIND.
~Bulimia has NOTHING to do with ANY stereotyes either. This is a MEDICAL CONDITION that should be treated by a doctor ASAP.
~Dying your hair doesn't make you emo. A lot of emos have their natural hair color. Hair color has nothing to do with it at all.
~Attention seeking also has nothing to do with emo. Attention seekers are in a class all by themselves.
~Emo is a music type and also a type of style
~People who say things like "I wanna turn emo", "Am I an emo?", "How do I be emo?", "I think I'm going/turning emo!", "Help me, I'm emo!" or "Help I think I'm emo" are considered posers. If you have to ask other people how to look/be something, chances are your NOT and just trying to be something your not.
~Ignore the haters. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being emo. Emos are actually nice, friendly people.
~A lot of lies/rumors have been started about emos such as they cut, they're always depressed, they're very b*tchy and moody. This is NOT true. As I've already stated, self harm/cutting and depression have nothing to do with ANY stereotype. And you wanna know why some emos might be b*thcy? Because they're sick of the f*cktards who act like they know everything about emo, when in reality they don't know sh*t because they're the idiots that believe they lies! That's very wrong indeed.
~You DON'T HAVE to have piercings to be emo, or be shy. Some emo kids are actually very out-going. Piercings are a form of self expression and body art. It doesn't make you emo just because you choose to have them.
~Converse isn't something that makes you emo either. Some emos wear vans, others wear skater shoes.
~Wearing blue, or other funky colored pants... not emo. Sorry, they wear whatever they want. Not ALL are skin tight either. Some are just nromal skinny jeans or even a little loose-fitting.
~Band T's are also NOT a must. They wear any shirt they want to.
Now THIS is advice for ANYONE to follow, including yourself -
ALWAYS be yourself. NEVER change who you are for ANYONE no matter what. Never change yourself just to fit in or anything like that either. True friends/lovers would be able to accept you for who you truly are.
Hopefully this helps you, if you need anything else, let me know.
because most are posers... first of all.. no emo cuts.. that's cutters who either think they're emo, or are posers.. there's a difference. second, posers go around whinning and saying they can't be helped... real emo's seem like much happier people even with the depression. they have fun and bring no one down with them. they smile and laugh all day long, or at least when people are around.. people have totally changed around the meaning of emo, enough to where people can't stand them anymore.
emo's are steriotypically treated, people think they all self harm but people dont understand they find them different so they get picked on. its not fair but people dont see that they make peoples lives horrible when they get steriotyped . . . .
because some people are really ignorant and see them as different in society like how high class people make fun and push away the lower class. same concept.
because majority of the kids who call themselves emo and majority of the people who talk about emo still have no idea what the word actually means
they are eccentrics, out to normal people... they have a different lifestyle and all, and of course, they wear scary make-up! yikes!
because people think that they have a bad attitude towards life. I dont care if their emo I hate judging people on their apperance!
because most people think that they are whiney little sh!ts who do things like cutting for no reason, when they can get help. DUH
iam emo I cut my self co I've had a bad life and it helps me cope wid it
