I am just ummm curious
People don't just randomly "become" or "go" emo. If they say they do, then they're what we call a poser. "Emo" kids are very misjudged due to all the lies/rumors that have been started about them. Here's the real truth behind the term "emo" -
Emo is a type of style/stereotype/label and music genre.
People tend to judge the "emo" kids by what's on the outside and don't even bother to get to know them. That's bullsh*t. a lot of lies/rumors have been started about them.
There's really 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. They have nothing to do with stereotypes/labels. And as for being shy - just because your shy doesn't make you emo. Some people are just naturally very shy-natured around new people.
~Wearing shoes like Converse, Vans, and skate shoes don't make you emo. Being emo has nothing to do with your 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 NOT a must. They wear any shirt they want to.
~If a guy is wearing tight clothes *such a skinny jeans or slim fit t-shirts* and makeup/nail polish... that DOESN'T make him emo or gay. They make skinny jeans for guys AND girls. Makeup/nail polish has become a unisex thing, meaning it's alright for GUYS AND GIRLS to wear it. People have the right to wear whatever the hell they please without being judged.
~If a guy crys, it doesn't make him emo. Guys are humans too, therefore they have feelings/emotions. It's 100% completely normal for a guy to cry/show emotion. We all have to sometimes.
~Listening to heavy metal and screamo music doesn't make you emo. A lot of people who are hardcore metal fans are called metal heads. There's a HUGE difference between metal heads and emos.
~Painting your nails black doesn't make you emo. Nail polish has nothing to do with ANY stereotype.
