Answer #1

crayonsandmarkers if you want to get technical, it’s a sub genre. There’s also an Emo fashion that pertains to the music. Emo’s are people who take up the dress and listen to the music. I don’t mind Indie Emo, ect, up until the third wave, most recent. I can’t say I care to much for the third wave. People began slitting their wrist to group their selves better in with the labile. They’ve become huge attention seekers and their style has changed drastically from near post punk to almost scene, it’s become a bit difficult to tell the difference between the 2. But to those who hold true to what it original was, I don’t mind. It’s the attention seekers I don’t care for.

Answer #2

I am guessing it’s because they think all emos cut themselves and are always depressed and stuff like that. Even though a lot of emos actually don’t cut. I guess maybe it’s because they don’t like what they can’t understand. ~~Britt

Answer #3

People are morons. Nince out of ten “emo haters” don’t even know the real truth behind the word 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 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. 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.

*Nine, not nince lol

Answer #5

personally, the only part is dislike is the over-dramatic ones that are ALWAYS trying to stay in a state of depression for the attention and wallowing in self-pity. ( THE STEREO-TYPE EMO) it rbing every one else down around them, and the friendship becomes very tiring to always be putting so much into making someone happy that isn’t even trying to be.

Answer #6

I have nothing against emos I kinda like you emos. the thing I hate is self-harming and stuff like that

Answer #7

People just dont seem to step in somebody elses shous. And also is a stereotype. People who cut just I their way of coping I use to do it and sometimes still do and nobody will ever know everysingle thing about me so nobody can judge me. I cut SO WHAT I have a difrent way of handeling things SO WAHT!! That is just my opinion.

Answer #8

I dont think there is anything different between anyone whether you are goth or whatever anyway my point is that it is the same with the old issues of black and white people it shouldn’t change the way people look at you

Answer #9

well first of all, emo is a genre of MUSIC, not people.

second, I am answering seriously.

emos need to stop wanting attention, and calling themselves emo, your EMOTIONAL, not a type of music.

everyone is emotional

Answer #10

I have like a few goth friends but there not little crying kid so if your like them then go punk thats not as gay as being emo and “emo”is short for emotional WHAT ARE you SO EMOTIONAL ABOUT THAT CUTTING WILL HELP you SOLVE!?!

Answer #14

freshkid everybody cries so what are you talking about and 2 NOT ALL EMOS CUT none of my emo friends cut im emo to and my friends have never seen a emo cut. emo dont always cry a lot me and my friends are happy/sad/angry and other emotions emos are regular people its just that you people think we’re freaks. so whats the real point of hating emos. do you have a real reason?? on sites I go on hella people hate emos but I asked them whats your reason and they say “I hate emos cause they’re ugly” or “I hate emos cause people call me emo” I MEAN LIKE WTF thats so stupid no one knows the reason why or how people started hating on us…give us a break I mean come on did we do anything to you ,you dont even know us…

Answer #15

I have nothing against most of them I beleive its a sterotype/fad that most kids will grow out of when there older though just like with most of the kids and teens who call themselve scene, gothic, ect but I dont hate them I do howevere hate the kids who call themself emo and cut/self harm because thats what they think emo is or who do it for attention cutting is self harm and has nothing to do with any label or sterotype I dislike the kids who self harm for the two above reasons I beleive emo is a genre of music and a style of dress now it was short for emocore (music genre) before it became short for emotional which everyone is because everyone has emotions self harm generally indicates depression and problems that the person (you included judging by your last question that was removed as it broke the terms of use) need to talk about and get help with

Answer #16

I agree with xdarl_memoriezx everybody does cry I bet you even cry so I guess you would call yourself a crybaby to so if you got a problem with people crying I guess you have a problem with everybody cause every has depression and cheya so if I were you I would shut my mouth and not talk about emos like that emos,goths,scene,and punks are almost alike andi did say almost I seen goths cry many times before so cheya again…

Answer #17

Man it’s damn obvious why people hate you emo’s, you’re attention seeking little babies who dress like you’ve just fallen into a washing machine that’s shrunk your clothes and on the way out somehow a tin of paint has landed on your face. You also all come across as completly pathetic, being very feminine and cutting simply for attention. There is no reason to cut yourself no matter what, it isn’t “how you deal with it” haloseeker, it’s stupid and is an attempt to gain attention or harm yourself because of how pathetic you think you are, so much so you have an urge to hurt yourself. As someone studying psychology, cutting is not a coping strategy as whether you like it or not it’s not problem focused or emotional, it’s just stupid. The last point is most emo’s are bisexual, which brings an image to the entire group that you all pretend to be bisexual to fit in and by doing so you degrade yourself by not sticking to your sexual preference whether that’s gay or straight. Grow some damn balls.

Answer #18

I feel that emos have a reason to be who they are. Not everyone is the same, and why can you people not realise that? You pick on emos and make fun of them, but you don’t realise that you make the problem worse. I’m not whining, I’m trying to make you understand. They’re just normal people who have been through alot. And they don’t need the agrovation. If everyone was the same, the world would be a boring place. If you gathered five people, they would each have something different to one-another. I respect emos for being different. Please, just stop mocking them. X
