      "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 -.-

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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 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.

    gothic has way more options. romantigoth, Lolita, victorian, fetish, cybergoth, steampunk etc. theres a type of goth for everyone. I'm already goth and I would never be emo. you couldn't pay me to be. emos are like mallgoths but whinier and with worse music tastes.
