39% Be Emo
61% 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
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??
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
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
Damn it! I thought it said be Elmo and I clicked that one -_- FML
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'
Emo = Pussy version of Goth.
You= narrow-minded moron
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.
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?
Gothic is WAY more classy, emo is a teenager crying (no pun intended) for attention.
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
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.
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...
Gothic seems less deathy then emo
Gothic is early European.
emos are just people who listen to a certain type of music. Its horribly misunderstood.
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.
because emos just suck
I fucking hate emos. They're a waste of space. They think they're "nonconformist" yet they're all exactly the same.
I AM THE NIGHT!
Im already emo easy n being whiny is a stereotype -.-
Emo is just Goth for pussies
Who would want to be a stupid emo fag who compares with their friends who has the most scars - if they want to kill themselves they should cut the other way....not to say self harm is a 'stupid' thing to do if you are extremely unhappy and depressed then....I don't want to go into that.
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
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.
Hi. Ppl call me emo, tho the stereotypical notion doesnt really fits me. But others says so. Idk really.
Who doesn't love being in a German tribe?
I really thought its said Elmo hahahahah
Hey, I'd rape an pillage! FYI: I think you might have been looking for Goth...which I was at one point...I still retain some of the spirit.
It's only because I like the hair. #smoshantony
I am of Visigoth decent
