what exactly is emo, and why do people want to b it?

Answer #1

majority of the peoiple who talk about emo and majority of kids who call themselves emo still have no idea what the word means emo has nothing to do with cutting, cutting is self harm or depression, a mental disorder anyone can feel depressed or resort to self harm because evryone has problems, sometimes ones they dont know how to deal with feelings and emotions play no part in any sterotype or label
and emo is nothing more than a genre of music and a style of dress nowdays morons use the word as an insault and other idiots go around saying they cut and are depressed its just a label thats kids slap on themselves because they feel like they fit in, at least for now right now its a fad/trend, just something kids want to be because its cool and something other kids do because there depressed or cut, these kids arnt emo and no nothing about emo. they just beleive what the morons say and follow what they think it is and what other people tell them it is then other kids just do it because they think its cool but mostly now theres just a lot of little kids with stupid problems like there mum grounded them, so they get depressed, start cutting and call themself emo better education should teach them that there are better ways to deal with problems and what the word emo actually means

Answer #2

emo is nothing more than the name for another group of people. like nerds, preps, jocks, hicks, etc.

its a retarded “phase” going on in th US that simply implies to the “type” of people the other people have already informed you about.

personally, its retarded.

Answer #3

emo is a genre of music, but is used to lable people. emo’s are depressed people who lots of people find cool, or they hate them a lot. most “emo’s” are posers, either they cut, which is not emo, or they just wish they were emo. scene is the same as emo but without the depression.

Answer #4

emo is short for emotional and its people who pretty much cant take society and they feel left out and hate their lives! they feel no purpose on the earth! and if someone wants to be an emo…they are ither not crear on what emo is or are freaks!!

Answer #5

you do not want to be emo. I’ve done it and it hurt and sucked. emo people find its easier to feel physical pain than emotional pain so they cut themselves. I realized that even though my life is stressful and sometimes it sucks, it wont always be like that and it was a stupid choice of a lifestyle. sometimes emo people wont look like their emo but their really secrative about their lives and family.

Answer #6

a long time ago there was musci that was emotional, and it was no biggy, but like in the past few years people started saying that “emo” Music was one type… And thats the screaming depresso music, I dont think emo is at all cool… I know people who were srsly losers and became “emo” and then thought they were king tut… I dont see why having long hair covering your eyes with black makeup makes you any better then anyone else, but.. wtv some of my firneds do have that style, I dont care.. I dont see anything different in them then anyone else, and I dont find it cool.

Answer #7

wow I learned something new today I didnt even know what it meant

Answer #8

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 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.

Hopefully this helps you, if you need anything else, let me know.
