Emo is a common word used to describe a group of nice, friendly people adhering to these standards (typically):
-Long, usually straightened hair, flipped to one side of the face.
-Tight skinny jeans, usually black, grey, reds, or certain neon colors.
-Black horn rimmed glasses
-Band shirts, striped clothes, checkered patters, all black shirts, etc all can be common apparel for emo kids.
-Slip on Vans are a favorite for emo kids shoes. Typically any kind of skater shoe may be worn as well.
In conclusion, I myself have been called "emo" and im your typical emo kid. i have cut before and do wear skinny jeans etc. i feel just the same as any other emo kid. i get picked on, made fun of, and called names because of who i am. Deep down inside ALL emo people are really friendly people. You dont even need to look deep down inside. Haters just need to stop judging us for who we are. I love EVERY emo person on the face of the planet. We are all here for each other, us emo's. Emo ppl RULE!!
Emo kids are dark, sensitive, and scary looking people but beneath all that there is a person who has a heart and truly cares.
