Gothic people post #1  quote:



What do you think of them as? Just some youngens who are putting on black to get some attention? Or people who are just being themselves, and showing who they really are? Do you think of Avril Lavinge a a PUNK or PRETENDER????

There are all kinds. I think many are attention-starved, and so they do something different to gain attention for themselves. However I believe there are other who are more genuinely into certain cultural aspects of goth that may make them more "authentic" In terms of goth chicks - some are downright frightful to behold, I don't buy into it.. especially excessive body-art yuck: desecration, IMO.. not rfom a religious standpoint, I just don't think it's attractive and that many of them might have regrest about permanent "personal" modifications as they grow older. Some, on the otherhand.. are drop-dead gorgeous.

I recall in recent years seeing a gorgeous, pale girl all in black with tight leggings and long, flowing coattails trailing behind her as she crossed a street, her thin legs moved her gracefully and she was just one of those unearthly vissions of "wow".

Oh yeah, and by contrast, Avril is your average *****y highschool flopout drug-addict loser. I don't think wearing too much mascara/eyeliner qualifies her to be a part of conversation about goth..

"teacher"?

Punks are the in the same situation as far as I'm concerned. To me, some punk is cool and attractive.. and other is just over the line and repulsive. Matter of preference I suppose..

(even tho I like these guys) Blink-182.. there posers..but I still like there music.. I don't but that all I really have to say

I don't think being goth is a way to "show who you really are" anymore. It's unoriginal - more of a trend now. In fact - now adays, being goth is more unoriginal than not.

but do you know every single gothic person on this earth and if they are only doing it to be cool or if they really are showing their true feelings. so you cant exactly say that unless you have proof of it, and if you dont, then all its doing is insulting people who are gothic.

I saw a girl with a nose ring spit out of the bus window today. I guess she's usually the butch

Yea, I don't care for goth, but to each his own I guess. SNL made fun of goth on a few occassions, pretty funny.

There was this guy with some real issues at the light rail station. First he called this goth chick "sweetie pie", she said "don't call me that.". Then he said something about not putting lipstick on ****. Then he said something like "I am what I am and that's who I'm going to be." Reminded me of Popeye. Riding mass transit has it's more memorable moments at times

They can wear trash bags for all I care. As long as they act respectfully. By this I mean, as long as they aren't standing around yelling and swearing and generally making a**es of themselves like the majority of the populations seems to be doing these days. Could it be because I also ride public transportion that I feel this way? Yeah, I think so.

So pierce your ears 203 times, wear as much white makeup as you want. Just don't sit next to me on the bus and tell me how many beers you just had and how many people you had sex with yesterday. That's not so much to ask.

lol bitwiz...so tru so tru...i think anyone who dresses totally opposite from normal (chains whips....black overly baggy pants...etc.) is asking for attention. I mean...come on? You think they actually feel comfortable in those clothes? They want attention! (in my opinion)

baby biatch, I am a sk8boarding punk, I wear baggy pants and chains and ties, chokers, studded wrist cuffs etc, and I can honestly tell you that it's not for attention, we dress like it to express ourselves, just like ya'll wear your skirts and tight tops and dresses... It's just the style that we like...

Cool Questions of the unknown post #17  quote:

Do gothic people pierce their "A$$ holes"? And would they" show" it off? When they meet..and one of them is wearing magnets..Do they feel an attraction? When a gothic mom gives birth..Does she end up "Shreaded wheat"? Do they avoid water so they will not rust? When your gothic..do you still need Iron in your diet? much to ponder..

I'd say that your "valid questions" are infact, quite offensive to goths, You are insinuating that goths are some kind of dark creature, like dracula or something. they don't come out only at night are not full of some magnetic field that attracts them to lightning or sharp objects. They are just people, like you and me, sure they have problems, but don't the rest of us?

Cool Still just children... post #27  quote:

If you three "children" would have payed more attention in school Expecially in "Reading"class...It would be just too easy to see these were Real questions pertaining to Science and health and one for curiousity. You want the world to acknowledge "Goth" and understand it. Yet If a question is raised, Boo hoo Boo hoo they're Knocking "Goth" again!

But if there is some "ugly" secrets about goth your trying to avoid, I understand...
