Answer #2

Here’s the thing… you don’t just randomly “decide” or “change” to being emo. That’s what we all call a POSER. A lot of times, emos are misjudged. People judge them 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.

THESE are the REAL100% 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.

Answer #9


Answer #10

If you want to be emo then go ahead. But its not healty 2 cut yourself and all that depresing stuff. If you want to be emo go to and type in how to be emo. you should find something there. but be4 you decide 2 be emo, think about the scars and what you’ll to 2 the people that love u. depression isn’t something people like 2 be around

Answer #11

I don’t think jerry14 knows too much what he’s talking about. he’s got a little bit of an idea, but not much. emo “chicks” are sad, the ones who are happy are called scene. emo’s have piercings everywhere, not just facial. emo’s hair can be ANY colour. emo’s do not have to have layers. emo’s do not wear lot’s of eyeliner (only goths do becarfuel when it comes to makeup). They can wear BLACK OR BLUE ONLY!!! they wear converse shoes (remember - blue or black only). all I can say to yee right now.

EMO’S DO NOT CUT!!! they do not want to feel more pain than they already do. Emo’s who cut are called cutters!!! If a cutter says they’re emo, they’re either lieing, or do not know the meaning of emo.

But yeah, you shouldn’t want to do this just because. but if you don’t have the sad feelings, you’ll be scene. and if you feel like this is really what you want and this is the way to express yourself, go for it!!! I guess.

Answer #12

dude you cant turn “emo” its a state of mind not a fashion statment.

Answer #13

Answer #14

Answer #15

I love it when people come up 2 me and call me a wannabe or say “how can I be emo?” their just showin that they are posers…they only say ima wannabe because im black…watever 2 them!

Answer #16


Answer #17

yep, what most of the above said, can’t just become one because you’d just be a Poser. and they are just in it for the fashion, we Emos are serious about emotions. like kortnie_m said, it’s a state of mind

Answer #18

yeh ia gree its more of a state of mind not about the fashion. you dont just turn emo- it happens! Anyway just be you, not anyone else. Why live a life you dont want to

Answer #19

You’re an idiot. That’s trying to fit into a steryotype. And most of the answers on here are WRONG about the steryotype. Jerry14. That’s “scene”.

Emo: Etymology; Short for emotional. :a style of rock music influenced by punk rock and featuring introspective and emotionally fraught lyrics.

Maybe…you should stop thinking what the media wants you to think and grow some originality. It doesn’t take TOO much work. The whole thinking for yourself thing. I know the media and peers do a great job for you. But try it.

Besides…you’re already in a clique. Idiot posers. That’s what’s “in” right now anyways.

Answer #20

so you want to be part of a label that majority of the people who are emo still dont know what the word means first off it has NOTHING to do with cutting or depression cutting is self harm and depression is a mental disorder pretty much anyone can cut and have depression because pretty much everyone has problems that they think hurting themselves would be the answer however its not lots of ‘emo’ kids do these things because there too stupid to realise that there just believing what everyone else tells them too lots of idiots go around saying “emos cut” “there all depressed” ect not only giving out stupid wrong information but this crap spreads and influences people of the label, making them think THAT is what emo is all about when its not emo is a style of dress and genre of music nothing more feelings and emotions play NO PART in labels and steroypes

Answer #21

just hang round wiv emo’s and sk8trs thas wa I do there like all my bestfriends because they are really nice people! I used to be PINK mANIAC lol but since I have been hanging round wiv them so long I have kinda turned to black, allthough I still like dressing up girly I am mainly in black, skinny jeannes converse etc ypou have to also like the music rock / punk I liked the music before I turned to black so get into thwe music 1st, as you cant be a emo & loving the jonas brothers lol also emo does not necisaryly mean cutting your self or being depressed!! hardly none of my emo friends are like that emo is about music & style x

Answer #22

Dunno why you’d wanna be emo when there are better things to be. & besides whats the point in putting yourself under a name & a lable & stuff. Just be you. Everybody else is taken

Answer #23

okay well here it goes where a lot of black eyeliner wear black wear tight skinny jeans hang out with pot heads do illegal stuff wear black nail polish do drugs you dont have to cut urself if you dont want to but if you do 6 out of 8 than your good (this exactly what I am and I love it)

Answer #24

wow, okay hun, dont try to be something, be yourself. and emo is a huge stereotype that they are always sad and they cut. dress in what you like, be in your own state of mind, and always be confident with yourself. what makes you want “to be emo”?

Answer #25

I dont suggest it but you need black hair, black clothes and everything black. you also need to be always sad and depressed. and when your angry you must take your anger out on urself by hurting urself. its not good 2 do because you can die and people tease u
