Your thoughts about goth

Give me your most honest answer on what you think about the subculture Gothic/Goth.

Answer #1

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.

Answer #2

I think the whole goth thing is a small group of hardcores, who have been hopelessly inundated by posers and fairweather goths who just wanna be cool, or even accepted by someone. most of them want to be loved, but don’t know how to fit in. think “island of misfit toys,” but in click form.

Answer #3

There’s NOTHING wrong with them. People don’t need to go judging them before they even know them. That’s wrong. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!

Answer #4

im not meaning to be a prep

but they scare me,, like some of the people

like I guess I have some friends maybe you could consider them goth but im not really franns with those kinda people I don’t know the goth name has kinda changed and so has emo but

I just dont see how they can be so down on life or like I don’t know im just really loud I cant see how you could be so quiet

Answer #5

I actually don’t know enough about it to give an educated opinion, but, as with all styes or attitudes, it often tends to be a phase (keeping in mind that I do know some people who will be goth till the day they die, so my opinion is not etched in stone)

Answer #6

I dont mind it, I think it’s rather unique. The style, I mean. If they are all depressed and worship the devil, then I don’t agree with that. But otherwise, I’m fine with it.

Answer #7

I honestly do not mind the style at all but it dpeends on a person I wont like or dislike a person because they have a specific style so I dont really care about it all to much

I feel indifferent

Answer #8

the guys can be hot!! um… I don’t really care- as long as they’re nice to me then they’re good!! since they’re “different”, my dad said that the more they act different, the more they are the same. which is true.

Answer #9

I think its just a face in most people that happens during their high school years…I have friends that used to dress like that in high school but now after high school they dress normal…but then again I have a couple of friends that still dress like that

Answer #10

I used to think that goths were quite scary, because of the dark coats and heavy black and red makeup. but then I met the nicest guy ever. hes goth, he athiest, he wears a lot of black and chains, he has piercings, he loves drawing, but he is the sweetest most geniune guy I’ve ever met. I never would have classed him as goth, he just wears wot he likes.

I also wear a lot of black, and im very pale with very dark hair, I also love drawing, and im shy. im not emo and im not goth, im not anything really, im just me, my friends think im more girly than gothic, so that just proves, wearing red and black DOES NOT make you goth or emo. goths and emos have their own style and don’t follow stereotypes, they are just themselves.

Answer #11

You know, I think is people’s own style, and they should be able to wear what they want without being called a label.

I’m not going against your question or anything, but I’m just saying people express themselves in their own way.

Now, my honest answer about that would be basically (if I summed it all up) hmm… I don’t know how to explain it. Like it’s not stupid, but like it’s not the best thing in the world. It’s rather “normal” for me. Now I have nothing against wearing black, don’t get me wrong, it’s a respectable style .:)

Answer #12

there fine, just another label/sterotype people can put on themselves goth is a style of dress and a genre of much, NOTHING more feelings, emotiones, mental conditions like depression and self harm have nothing do to with goth or any other sterotype for most kids today, labels like these are a fad and when they grow up a bit more they wont be goth for some people, its there style, and there way of life but for a lot of kids nowdays, they just do it because for now thats were they think they fit in, or because there posers and do it because its cool, because they think its cool. and there prentending to be something there not but theres nothing at all wrong with the sterotype however a lot of the people who talk about it still dont have any idea what it means

Answer #13

I am scared of goths but not really I just don’t like how the guys wear the make up. it’s just creepy
