Urban dictionary has a lot of definitoins on emo, and most of them are BULL-!
Aren't stereotypes in general BULL-? Emos are not whiney, rich kids who think life sucks and try to kill themselves- that's called stereotyping. And besides, you don't have to be rich to shop at Hot Topic. Since when does anyone not want to be themselves and be an individual. Who cares if you don't look a certain way, or you don't have to act a certain way either. Just be yourself.
If you watch interviews with the guys from Fugazi and From First to Last, you'll see that eventhough there are emo, they are great people with a sense of humor.
