AS the meaning of the word used in modern times.

An Emo is GENERALLY a extremely depressive person who broadcasts these feelings in extreme ways to grasp for attention.

The majority of "emos" wear your stereotypical tight black clothing with a mix of dark cold colors like purple and blue and on the off occasion red and pink. Also sporting the current hair style of bangs over one of both eyes with longer collarbone length hair for males and long hair for the females. Also usually darker tones, presumable dyed if the natural coloring wasn't dark enough.

Accessories usually include some kind of music device. (CD player covered in stickers and black marker, small oddly brightly colored mp3 players with ear buds so as to not interfere with their hair.)A personal journal and some kind of form fitting hooded zipper jacket.
Some also wear makeup. nothing too drastic usually sticking to the dark colors again, eyeliner and mascara mostly, for males and females. Some go as far as to use glitter to draw attention to the eyes.

A moderate amount of "emos" cut to "show the world their inner pain." This would sometimes be the skin scraping enough to scab, *supposed "Posers"* Or to the depth that stitches may be required. *Authors personal opinion, these "cutters" should be locked up in a safe facility.*

Some "emos" may be expressive enough about their feelings to show them as expressively as the prophets of ancient times. Screaming, rantings, crying, sobbing, and so on in the negative and angry emotions.

The combination of all the things said above make "emo" an easy target for modern society to scorn. which seems to be the ultimate goal of most "emo" people.

*Side note: Emo's do not have a set age, height, weight, or race limitation. The author in fact knows a family of "emos". though it is odd that the mother has followed the vast majority of "attention Trends" for the past ten to fifteen years. since the birth of her first child. "Country Girl", "Harley Enthusiast", Feminist, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, and now "emo/cutter". TO which she posted bulletins about the last three changes on her myspace. Could be something to that.*
EMoSOlja : I'm into dark stuff man. It helps me show my pain.

Commoner: Like the a Goth? Goths are Dark but pretty heartless.

EMoSOlja : NO I am NOT a GOTH! I have feelings! I WANT you to feel my emotions like I do!


*sorry horrible example. I'm out of descriptiveness. yeah I'm not sure that's a word but it covers my meaning nicely.*
