I'm kinda confused about what a goth is.could you tell me?
They're often VERY misjudged, just like emos. Goth is a stereotype, music type and to some, it's sort of like a lifestyle. They're not scary, evil or anything like that. There's nothing wrong with them. Being quiet has nothing to do with being gothic. Some people are just quiet. Goths and emos alike have been misjudged. A lot of times, people will judge them before they even know them which is completely wrong. People shouldn't judge other by what's on the outside. You should judge them by what kind of person they are at heart... not by their style/music taste or something stupid like that. Most emos/goths are actually really nice people. You just have to take the time to get to know them before you go judging them. Here are you TRUE facts on emos/goths -
Depression and suicide has NOTHING to do with being goth OR any other stereotype. Depression is a MEDICAL CONDITION that should be treated by a doctor. Suicide is NOT a joking matter. It's something that should be taken seriously NO MATTER WHAT.
Wearing black and red DOESN'T make you goth.
Being into drugs and alcohol has NOTHING to do with goths or other stereotypes. Drinking is a choice. LOTS of people do it. Drugs are NOT goth. Drug addictions are rather serious and if you DO have a drug problem, you should honestly get help for it. Don't be afraid to do so, it'll be for the better. There's nothing to be embarrassed about or anything like that. No one is perfect. And as a matter of fact, some goths are STRAIGHT EDGE meaning they don't drink, do drugs OR smoke even! True some smoke and or drink, but do you realize how many OTHER people on earth smoke and drink?! It's not JUST the goths. And besides, that's LEGAL as long as your of the legal age - 18 for smoking, 21 for drinking. Drugs are ILLEGAL and, as bad as it may sound, there are SEVERAL people on earth dealing with drug related issues. It's not JUST goths or other stereotypes.
GOTHS ARE NOT ALL F*CKING SATANISTS! Most goths believe in God and some even GO TO CHURCH. Worshipping Satan has NOTHING to do with being gothic.
There's more to being a goth than listening to Goth metal, writing poetry, reading and drawing.
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 btchy 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 bthcy? Because they're sick of the fcktards who act like they know everything about emo, when in reality they don't know sht 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.
Well, my advice sets the facts straight... it clears up things so the asker or the question isn't confused by the dumbas rumors. No one asked for YOUR comment. Either answer the question or shut it instead of being btchy for no reason. And if you actually READ my advice... you'll see that in the first line I clearly state "Goth is a stereotype, music type, and to some, it's sort of like a lifestyle".
Look, my advice was setting the facts about goths straight. If someone is asking what a goth is, then they're obviously clueless about it no offence so they're more likely to believe the rumors/lies people start about them. That's why I left you the advice I did - to leave you with the REAL facts and the honest truth so you'll know the truth about goths.
But she DID tell you what they were... do you not read? She was setting you straight so you didn't accidently believe any horrible rumors/lies that people have started. And she DID state it in the first line of her advice. Don't be rude to her. She gives very good advice. Everything she's stated is 100% correct. She knows her stuff, apperciate her advice.
annonomus, stay out of this please. Either answer the question or don't comment. And if you were calling ME a computer hater, your an idiot. I'm not being a hater, I'm giving you REAL advice so you don't make a fcktard out of yourself by believing a bunch of bullsht lies.
Apparently they didn't want people knowing they didn't know what goth was so they decided to mark it anonymous lol
Well I'm always b*tchy so trust me, you wouldn't win with me. Stop making drama and do something useful.
just another stero type for the 00's
