I would say that those who are depressed and emos are two totally different things. Emo is more like a label - a fad, almost. People who say everything in their life is wrong when it's perfectly normal. They tend to dress in black, have stringy black hair, wear pale/dark make up ( sometimes not ) and seem to always wear bracelets to cover up their cuts and scars. When I think of an Emo cutting, I think of scarification, where it's posed as a statement or done because they want to be labeled as 'Emo'.<br />
<br />
Where as depression is depression. Some may cut but only to release the feeling of wanting to die. If they don't get their 'fix' they will try to off themselves. Unlike Emo's, those who have actual suicidal tendencies don't usually tell people how they feel in the belief that no one cares.

The emos at my school:<br />
1) Are druggies/sex addicts/utterly useless human beings<br />
2) Constantly ***** about others and how they are so mean, but have never once thought of having thicker skin.<br />
3) Look/Act like a hot, stinking mess.<br />
4) Are those types of people that will judge a book by it's cover and get offended when others do the same thing. <br />
<br />
Emos are, by definition, 'emotional'. Which usually seeps into 'hysterical when conflict arises', which means hyper-sensitivity. When one is uber-bitchy, they tend to think harsh things on those around them, blame everything on others, complain about how they are treated and how they are so innocent, even though most of thier misfortune is brought on by their own thin-skinned.. Ness. >>; I'm sure that's a word in some language..<br />
<br />
My mom (back when I was in that gosh-awful 'emo' phase) always used to say I was hyper-sensitive, and when I finally stopped bitching and being broody because of nothing at all, when I finally changed the **** that was wrong with me--I took advice from the bullies that would say 'you're a crybaby', 'you're such an ***..', 'why do you always have to talk about people like a stupid *****?' and examined why I felt like I felt--(rude, stand-offish, judgemental, man-hating, and overall ***** attitude) I started to gain genuine, loving, and successful friends. <br />
Moral of the story? If you're a puss, you're going to think everyone is out to get you, like most 'emos' seem to be thinking nowadays. <br />
<br />
Gosh.. I honestly hoped this helped a little bit.

I can tell u don't like emos u have a sad life

Best Answer

Because teenagers are very insecure on the whole. Many very insecure people can get to feeling better about themselves by shaming the people around them. To that end they will settle on any minor difference and use it to ridicule the other. They may even make stuff up to ridicule people around them because they themselves are so emotionally wobbly.<br />
Too...they sort of "scapegoat" people who are different...so they themselves can pretend they don't have the maligned quality. <br />
For instance, the old saying in the gay community: "The one who screams 'F@G!' the loudest usually is one..." Meaning the guys who find obvious gay people to beat up were and are doing it because they were afraid of being gay themselves.<br />
<br />
...I was once exceedingly insecure, but I got no good feelings out of making fun of others...I just felt guilt. Bullies do not empathize with their victims.<br />
<br />
People have such a dearth of love, when that's all they want. So sad.

IMO, it happens so often because at it's worst, the whole emo thing comes across as a self-pitying lifestyle built around trying to make depression and self-harm look chic. People who make themselves look weak are always the easiest targets.

Best Answer

How does emo still exist? All of the original emos are in their 30s now. Traditionally, an emo is someone who comes from an upper-middle class home who have bad haircuts, poor fashion sense, and inflated opinions of both themselves and their problems. <br />
<br />
Being depressed and cutting have nothing to do with being emo. In my life, though I have battled bouts of depression and self harm like many others, throughout it all, I have retained my fashion sense and perspective that my problems aren't really as bad as they seem.

Best Answer

'All of the original emos are in their 30s now" You are thinking of goths.

Best Answer

Except that goths are even more poorly dressed. I can tell them apart. Maybe late twenties is a better estimate of age.

Best Answer

Well fashion sense is an opinion. I was talking about the people who aren't fake. The people who live up to the stereotyping. Everyone thinks emos have to wear dark clothes all the time. That's not necessarily true. Someone who dresses really preppy and acts really preppy, could be sad and miserable. No one really knows what happens inside, at the home. That's why I think people should find at least one good thing about someone. Even if they don't like someone, people should still be nice.

Best Answer

Goths and emos are different.

Best Answer

I've been exposed to emos since before you were born. xD I'm not saying that I'm mean to anyone, but they are characterized by their over-sensitivity and inflated sense of self.

I know what emo means, I know where it comes from. I know what real emo music is, that said I know it's a style of music, everything is else is a self absorbed attempt to be cooler than the next.<br />

So basically you're a sugar coated version of what you pretend to be. If the phrase "I hate myself" means nothing but "I hate myself" you don't know what the word emo means.<br />
