    I think the idea if this stereotype is idiotic

    but then when I look at the things associated with it... I realize I fit most of them... So I guess I'm "emo" without even trying like some of the attention grabbing 6th graders who do it for fun...

    Gosh I'm really worried about what has happened

    to the Emo-scene. Like really? Being Emo isn't about self harming or being sad. It's about being emotional and about expressive music. If you self harm or anything just to be Emo: STOP IT! Really self harm isn't something you do because it's in or cool. The ones who do it...

    Im Young And Hurt Hurt. Age 12.

    I'm 12 and emo. Some people say that I'm being a follower, trying to be someone who I'm not. But they are wrong. I've been through a lot in my past. I was abused at 4. I've always had marks. Always in pain. My step-father was a monster. My mom found out one day about my abuse and...

    As you know from my previous entry I'm emo.

    I am very very emotional. I have many emotional breakdowns too but when I'm alone. Sometimes I build up and it comes out in tears or anger or thoughts of suicide. I need help. My mom and Dad have no clue at all I cover it all up. I wear finger less gloves or long sleeves. So if...

    Apparently I'm An Emo, Umm Okay.

    Just because I wear black, cut myself, wear lots of eyeliner and listen to bands such as black veil brides and A skylit, cover my face with my hair with lots of high lights doesn't make me emo right? I'm sure it takes a lot more than that, but hey call me whatever you want I'm...

    I'm not really one to put labels on myself.

    .. But.. If we're bring honest here.. I do fit the emo stereotype and people don't hesitate to let me know that. But honestly... I don't care what they have to say. I'm me and that's it. ✌️

    I'm the Real Thing

    I'm getting tired of many people saying "I'm Going To Be Emo!" First of all, you can't just say "I'm going to be emo." And then expect yourself to become emo in the span of one night. Emo isn't just a stlye of dressing, and it's not just a music style. Emo...

    Hopefully uh all understand that

    if you say, "I'm emo" you're most likely a scene kid because emo isn't even a type of lifestyle. Emo is a genre of music, as for example, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boys are emo. Emo isn't short for emotional. Emo isn't anything but a genre of music. So basically...

    when people try to tell me this is just a phase. Well, a phase normally lasts 1-3 years and I've always liked the music and have been dressing like this since I was 8 soo when exactly does this "phase" as you call it end?
