a goth is someone who would hate to be thought of as someone "like them."
"Them" being both Trendies and Townies. they dress the way they do as a statement to the general public so they will not mistake their inclinations.
most goths think that nu-metal is the scourge of modern society and think that the world might just be bearable if there were no townies,Trendies,preppies, jocks, murderers or hatemongerers.
"Goth is a state of mind...meaning everyone you dont hate."
