Goth was originally a term
used to describe people
with a taste for certain bands eg: Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, etc. in the '80s when punk started
out, and with wardrobes
In the 90s and early 2000s
the goth subculture
seemed to change to include bands such as Nirvana, Linkin Park, Slipknot, Cradle of Filth, etc.
have a cynical outlook on society and have an evolved sense of humor which has gone beyond
the "Ya ma" as an insult and will laugh at others, and at themselves in a healthy way. Goths
don't usually care
what other people
think of them, and don't care
if they don't fit in. Goths
, either what sexuality, religion, etc. other goths
are, and we don't take the piss
out of gays because we aren't homophobes.
If you shout insults after a bunch of goths
, alot of the time, they might not be offended, but take pride that people
that they're individuals.
