    No Way..

    I hate stereotypes a lot because it's like as soon as you start dressing a certain way you get named a certain stereotype. I sometimes used to get called an emo because of the way I dressed and looked. I just like to dress like that. It doesn't mean I want to be an emo. I'm...

    I'm Anything But "emo"

    I despise that word, I'm not emo, I'm not Gothic, I'm not ghetto. I am a human! Stop trying to fit me into your stupid genres and categorizes! Just because I like pain doesn't mean I'm emo, that word is redundant and so are the people who fancy themselves to be it in the first...

    Not At All

    I believe sadness and depression have a cause and they needs to be fixed. They're by no means inspiring enough for me to affect me in lifestyle. I may get distressed and have my sad days but i believe in life and hope. Even if i can't fix everything, i see no point in screaming...

    What Used To Be A Goth Stereotype.. I Don't Get It.

    I can understand using the term emo to describe a style of music, but I just don't get the subculture that seems to be forming around it. Being a goth who doesn't dress the part as much anymore as I used to I now find myself labeled emo when I do. I find much of the Emo...

    It's A Style Of Music, And I'm Definitely Not 'music'

    It annoys me when someone calls me emo. First of all, emo is a style of music like, The Used, The Cure, My Chemical Romance, stuff like that. Just because someone is a bit more emotional than others, or is sensitive, it doesn't make them "emo". Whenever someone mentions emo...

    Heck Naw

    A friend of mine, whom happens to be Goth, explained to me the exact difference between Emo and Goth.  He informed me that Emos are to Goths like Zombies are to Vampires.  Zombies and Vampires are both undead, yes, but Vampires have a certain sexual appeal to them that...

    Sun Makes Me Sad

    I cant tell the sun to go away. Because that would be unfair. The sun has been here for millions of years. But i do not like the sun, though it provides fun. I do not not like the color it gives off... i feel as if the sun has attitude, a stuck-up one. Harming those who wish to...

    Can't Stand Them!!!

    Yep, I'm goth... NOT EMO! What's the difference? Well, Emo are new on the scene, they are whinny people, who can never see the happiness in anything (nor do they want to), and like to be depressed and cut themselves. Trying to cheer up an emo can be troublesome, because they don...
