A stupid stereotype that doesnt really exist.
Started off as a a genre of music from the Mid 80's Punk scene. Now turned into a trend that still, doesnt really exist. Emo is a type of music and nothing less. Someone who calls someone emo is obviously arrogant and doesnt understand the proper meaning. Calling someone 'emo' doesnt make sense. Its like calling some Jazz or Hip hop.
Its a type of music.
People who call themselves Emo are usually posers who are not dressing that way because they want to but just trying to figure out who they are.
I myself, I have black hair with blonde bangs, you can hardly seen any of my face. I wear girls drainpipes, I wear girl shirts, girls sweaters, I wear makeup, wear vans, usually have band t's on, and im one of the happiest people you will ever meet.
Most of my friends dress like me and are also happy.
Just because someone dresses like that doesnt mean they are depressed or whatever. Thats bullshit.
Its just a style, get over it. Stop judging.
If you have ever called someone emo you are completely arrogant and should probably go back to American Eagle and buy an 80 dollar pink polo.
I love emo/Post hardcore music.
Emo is a word that should be banished from anyone using.
I wear tight pants and makeup, im not emo.
