    I don't really believe in the stereotypical

    terms like emo, goth, jock blah blah blah but I do end up getting classed as 'emo'. When people think of emo they think, a suicidal teen who cuts themselves all the time and think their lives are worse than everyone. I really don't believe that, no I won't deny that I do self...

    Guess that's what my clique is called.

    Me and about 4 other people. My step - sisters also call me emo. I don't care being called emo, just gets annoying when someone uses it as an insult.

    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...

    I suppose I could identify

    as emo. I mean really it's an umbrella term. I'm not some hardcore person who hates the world and is angry at everyone. And I'm not saying every emo is like that either. However, the stereotype tends to think so. Anyway, yeah, any other emos out there?

    I am Emo, and I am tires of the stereotypes

    they give us. We are not always depressed and sad. I am a pretty positive guy. We don't condone suicide or cutting. We don't always wear all black clothing. We aren't some dark cult of devil worshipers. Stop with the stereotyping society. God bless guys. I love you all <3...

    How to do your hair the emo way: Step 1: Take

    a shower. Step 2: Flip your hair upside down as you dry. This will give you more volume. Step 3: While your hair is still damp, brush your hair from back to front, to add even more volume. This will fluff up your hair and give you that pouf on top of your head. Step 4...

    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...
