40% Be Emo
60% Be Gothic
You would dress and act the part.
I've always wanted to go pillaging.
Props for the unique interpretation of Gothic
Kick some Roman ass.
I feel soooo stupid
Rome shall never fall! Unlike Carthage!
Emo's are plain weird. WHO FUCKING GETS A KNIFE AND WRITES STUFF ON THEMSELVES WITH IT!
@Max, if you don't like people cutting themselves then why did you pick red? not trying to be rude but i am curious.
Your comment made me pick gothic.
whats the diffrence
Emo without the pain. And a reason to walk round in black looking grumpy =D
@simultion_theory Goth is when you hate the world. Emo is when you think the world hates you. Geez man thought is was obvious.
LET US RAPE THE WOMEN AND PILLAGE THE BEER HALL!
At least Goths do more than stare at the wall and blog about cutting themselves with paper clips to Avril levine songs
*Lavigne* And No, you ignorant retard.
Lol, I accidentally agreed. But, in any case, a lot of people can be without having to post it everywhere. A lot of people don't like to share their problems.
[Type X people] are [characteristic Y] and do [activity Z], which is why "I" am superior to [type X people].
Found the emo. Almost as fun as find the vegetarian.
Hey, I've submitted more than ten questions and vBulletin have gotten 0 response for more than a week. Is t hi is normal?
Hey retard, actually emos only cut themselves when they find absolutely no solution, and most of us hate Avril Lavigne, Goths are the ones who cut themselves because the sandwich didn't taste good
Not all emos cut! And why avrile or whatever? And a paperclip? Really??
"Goths are the ones who cut themselves because the sandwich didn't taste good" that's why I hate 'emos' Like seriously, stop acting like you're so much better than everyone else. You're defending your label of emo by saying that the stereotypes are untrue and then stereotyping another subculture. You are obviously an uncultured fuck that needs to grow up and stop being so dense -.-
You can't be a noncomformist if you don't drink coffee.
Emos cut their selves and believe in suicide
I thought it said Elmo :P
@*shinesbright* not all emo people cut and believe in suicide. Nice stereotype though
EMO'S GO SIT IN THE CORNER AND CUT THEMSELVES REJECT
You realize *goths* are the ones that call everyone else conformists, right?
What If I'm emo
im already a 'emo' so....
So 39% people would rather grab the most badass sharp knife and cut the fuck out of their arm instead of just dressing in black clothes?
Just because I'm not an emo doesn't mean I'm a "conformist."
Emo does not mean you have to cut yourself. Do some research before commenting you stereotypical shits
Thank you someone who actually has sense!!! Stop judging us because we like diffrent things.... PEOPLE ARE ALLOUD TO BE DIFFERENT YOU KNOW!!!!!!! :(
at least emos can be really attractive..
I'm failing to see the logic here.
..what the fuck? Logic please.
i think you left your logic over at 4chan
People say I'm an emo.... >.> but they say I am very attractive ..... well I have a YouTube channel and top my user is cristallopez29 and I am an awkwardly awkward person.... U.U
@BloodyKnives ad product placement
Being emo, thanks :P
Ikr! but still thats not the only thing though.
emo means emotional, and doesnt mean you dress a certain way or cut yourself. gothic is a style of dressing, and i do not wanna look like that. plus even the emos that dress emo, the guys are pretty dang hot.
Emo doesn't mean "emotional" An emo kid is one who listens to emo-core music. The most common of emo-core happens to be screamo. And yes they do dress a certain way.
Actually, dumbass Myname, emo does mean emotional.
What do you think emo stands for?
Is the "Collapse" option for collapsing out of sheer facepalm?
Okay, 'emo-core' means 'emotional hardcore', so the 'emo' in there is short for 'emotional'. However, the cultural moniker 'emo' does not refer to any 'emotional' person, but specifically to a cultural movement which originated from people who listened to 'emo-core'.
there is no such genre of music called 'emo-core' we prefer rock music and screamo is a technique not a genre.
Goth is a culture dating back like the 12th centary or further
It's not emotional. Emo is a subculture or something. My English sucks.
Emo = Pussy version of Goth.
You= narrow-minded moron
Why would you assuming the "emo" choice doesn't apply dressing emo, but the "gothic" choice does? Like you said you can be emo and not dress that way, gothic is a state of mind, not a dress code. Besides they dress so similarly regardless, one just has more options, while the other is constantly whiny.
'you would dress and act the part'
No. if its anyone who is whiny its you. you need to shut your whiney ass up.
Damn it! I thought it said be Elmo and I clicked that one -_- FML
I AM gothic, so, yeah...and, emo is a trend for the young, gothic is a lifestyle that can (and often does) last a lifetime, so yeah...Not going to emo bash, I promise.
"ur not a goth liek me so ur a cunformest cuz any1 who isnt a goth dusent questin socity at all."
a goth or a stupid teenagers idea of a goth?
Emo is not an idea of goth. It is completely different but because they both wear black a lot people have linked them, its wrong
People are so stupid. Emo does not mean you cut yourself being a cutter means you cut yourself emo means emotional. Learn the difference.
it means emotionaly unstable according to St trinians
emos are just people who listen to a certain type of music. Its horribly misunderstood.
Gothic is WAY more classy, emo is a teenager crying (no pun intended) for attention.
This question was stupid, I just chose the one that doesn't cause self harm infliction.
Emos get beaten up and cry. At least Goths are somewhat scary.
I AM THE NIGHT!
Goths don't hate life and aren't depressed and they play a major part in history they had their own language and art and were pagan which is an all right religion besides the sacrifising people and such so yeah
I thought it said Elmo for a moment...
because emos just suck
Gothic seems less deathy then emo
Im already emo easy n being whiny is a stereotype -.-
Gothic is early European.
i have actually just lost all faith in humanity, firstly it's not just "emos" that self harm, i know many people from all stupid stereotypes that self harm or have self harmed. Secondly, who cares what people dress like? It's their decision not yours and you should like them for who they are not for what they wear.
I dont care they dress kinda the same and are odd and shunned in society
I'm already Gothic.
Can we just stop with the arguing? Labels are FUCKING lame. You are the way you are because you were born that way or because you've grown to be that way. Period.
Is there a difference?
I read the blue as 'Be Elmo.' I recognized my mistake before I clicked it, thankfully.
How do I change my answer? D:
Also fuck the music
I'm not saying I'd want to slice my wrist; but there's something about all black apparel, fascination with death, and the devil worshipping shit that's a total turn off.
I always loved gothic, thanks to tim burton.
I don't want to be sad all the time, so I chose Gothic.
Lol, already do wear Victorian clothes in the everyday.
Hello? black trench coats? easy pick lol
Cutting is not kvlt enough.
emos cut themselves
There is a difference between "scene" and "emo"
I really don't want to cut my wrists
REAL Emo music, things like : I Hate Myself, Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Snowing, Algernon Cadwallader is amazing. Emo easily.
Finally someone who gets it! Throw in some Mineral, Joie de Vivre, Dowsing, Owen, Braid, etc. and man that's a good time.
I see your list of noname bands and raise you The Cure, Joy Division, Siouxsie and The Banshees, Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy and Fields of the Nephilim.
go ahead cut yourself idc im not emo like you
I'd rather NOT cut myself.
Yeah not all of us Emos actually believe in self harming!
I am an emo allredy
