a rare species amidst a world of gangstas (aha, jk); emo- its a crappy stereotype and another way to call someone a cutter. the stereotype= sad depressed 'scene'(another stereotype) styled person who cries all the time and hates life and cuts/burns/whatever form of self inflicted abuse themselves. --> basically somebodies ignorant butt left their imagination stray while thinking of 'scene kids' and added a twist. (twist being that emo kids hurt themselves)
saying, "i hate my life, nobody loves me, i'm all alone in this world. diary and ipod, you're my best friends." is something that would get you carted into the stereotype of emo.
