Emo is an identification, usually used by suburban
white teenagers. However, emo is a paradox that defies everything it supposedly stands for. An emo will tell you that they don't conform and remain individuals, but they all act the same, dress the same, have the same hairstyles, listen to the same music, etc. They conform
within their own group, just like nearly all suburban teenagers.
Emos claim to be depressed and angry all of the time, but they are in fact fundamentally happy and joyous.
Emos say that they reject the values of the preppy
kids, but still hold the core beliefs- denying those who do not conform, sleeping around, experimenting with drugs, and overall being suburban wannabes
Anyone who identifies as an emo simply cannot be in practice- they are instead "wannabemo
s", somebody who strives to be an emo, but cannot.
Justin, Jessica, and Chrissy all claim to be emo. All three listen to My Chemical Romance, have hairstyles like the ones they see on Gaia Online, and contradict themselves.
