A goth person can be many things.
Most goths tend to be thoughtful and interesting. They tend to define themselves as different with no interest in the mainstream, and also enjoy the heavier side of music.
Many of the so called "goths" in here have polluted this site with their slanted views and thoughts.
They believe that people who listen to Nu Metal are posers. This is untrue.
The fact that they scream "faggoth" at people who enjoy their own types of music are more poser-like than the accused.
Goth is more of a state of mind, a state of thought. Goths will support what they want to support, and listen what they want to listen to. Their values go deeper than those of people in the mainstream, and they generally are very sociable.
True goths have their own taste and way of life. The so called "true goths" bash them because they enjoy music that they dont like.
There is really no such thing as a goth poser. All poser images are based on opinion only, and are very biased.
There are many types of goths, with many different outlooks on life. Some are depressed, some are happy, but most are very cerebral and deep people.
Goths enjoy heavy music in general, such as death or black metal. Some lighter genres are permitted, and should even be celebrated, because they have their own taste.
Goths should never shape their taste to the mainstream just because other people do, and they are the ones who are true posers. You will be able to spot them very quickly.
Some goths may support gay rights, some may not, but among the goth circles, opinions are welcomed. The point of being goth is having indiviuality.
I enjoy the soft music of A Perfect Circle, and I also enjoy the rough death metal of Cannibal Corpse.
Poser goth: Dude, you like Slipknot!?!? youre a fucking poser!!!
One who gets into a dispute between two people, becomes aquainted with one of the people (Person 1), recieves their view on the situation they are in, and tells the other person (Person 2) what Person 1 said. This usually results in a fight, or a huge bitch fit.
