First things first, "emo" is NOT short for emotional... Only the "scenekids" think that.After all, surely all songs ever written intend on having some form of emotion in them? Dashboard confessional is not emo. Emo kids don't all have the regulation, long fringe, black dyed hair. Emo kids are not the scene kids!
True emo kid... was emo before everyone decided it was "cool"
Fake emo kid... Scene!

Emo Kids are becomming the centerpiece of pop-culture today. They took Punk and Goth idealisms, watered them down and then removed the DIY self satisfaction. Attention starved brats, Emo kids often fake depression for attention. While this practice has been around for generations amongst the worlds youth, never has it been so rampant and glorified as it is with today emo kids. In their ongoing attempts to get attention from their friends and peers, Emo Kids often embelish their problems or antagonize situations in their own lives in order to paint a more vibrant picture of why they think their lives suck. Emo Kids often try to form a feeling of individuality by alienating those who do no wear things that they wear, shop at places they shop and listen to what they listen to. When this so called "individuallity" is attacked or threatened in any way, Emo Kids go on the deffensive and claim that people don't understand them. To try and give advice to an emo kid is not unlike talking to a brick wall... the difference is that the brick wall will take your advice in silence, whereas the emo kid will make a big deal about it, over analyze it, criticize it and then dispose of any advice givin all while not taking the time to actually think about the advice in the first place. Doomed to refuse help from everyone, and then wonder why nobody is there in the end. Sticking primarily to their own, Emo Kids are incredibally clique-y. Said cliquiness is the result of an overly ambitious drive for indiviuality, caused by a drastic need for attention. To surmise: Emo Kids are, by and by, just a bunch of poseurs. They have managed to create an entire sub-culture built apon not thinking for themselves and competing for attention through means such as cutting, suicide threats, fake bi-sexuality, glorified drug and alchohol use and depressing attitudes.
Is the definition of Emo Kid not a good enough example?

okay, firstly i gotta say EMO KIDS DO NOT SLIT THEIR WRISTS OR WANT TO DIE. some emos might, but mostly they dont. emo is a type of music which is normally guys singing, but is has proper connections with the world and actually means something.also, its a kind of style and a kind of clothes. and i gota say emos ARE COOL AND THEY ROCK. they are not depressed and are usually happy, kind and caring people who understand each other. they shouldnt be labeled as suicidists (if thats even a word but u know what i mean) and they should be judged because of how they dress.

You can normally recognise an emo ::
skinny/drain pipe (tight) jeans
band or just darkly coloured t's
sometimes a hoodie, normally with neon colours (eg black with neon stars)
converse or vans , normally dirty and worn
normally studded belt or wrist band
favourite band name on ther wristband
usually pale skin, dark makeup round the eyes - loads of eyeliner
dark hair (black, or red maybe) with a sweeping side fringe that normally covers at least one eye
and 2 be honest normally ther really hot
THEY DO NOT WEAR BIG GLASSES ANY MORE

ROCK ON EMO KIDS !!!!!!! (AND MCR WHO ALSO ROCK THE WORLD)
*emo kid walks into a class room, wearing the tightest jeans he could find and a bright neon green studded belt. evry one glances and looks away. the plastics, jocks and other loosers cant be arsed to get to know the nice kind caring person taht emo kid actually is*

Rejected from society, the young emo kid struggles to find himself by means of going home every night and write depressing poems while he listen to bands like secondhand serenade and taking back sunday and making love to his razorblade and fawning over a girl he will never get due to his outcast status.
Jon:"did you see that emo kid crying?"
Dave:"yeah,what a fag"

Okay, lets get things straight here. Emo kids are actually sometimes the coolist people around. Okay, okay. Just because I said you'd be "cool" dont brand yourself emo cus thats just stupid...
Emo kids are usually picked on, or mocked. In fact, kids who get mocked for being emo may not even be emo. Prime example, at school i have two freinds. They spend there lunchtimes singing to Panic! and MCR (badly i must say, but they are entertaining) due to this, our table at school has been branded the "emo table" oooookay. Theres no logic in that! I mean, we all like listening to rock music (thus that may be why we have our brand -emo table) but whatever!

Noooow. If you wanna find a TRUE emo kid, lets look for the common signs, no? (boys)
. Usually long hair that covers an eye. Sometimes also be spiked at the top. Usually dyed black, or can be brown. (Emo boy hair is hawt <3)
. Black eyeliner. Yep, emo boys wear eyeliner XD
. Heavy rimmed glasses, usually black. Classed as "nerd glasses
. Tight t shirts that may have a symbolic meaning. Also they usually wear a black hooded jumper with a band logo on the back
. A messenger bag with pin badges of bands up the strap
. Maybe skinny jeans designed for woman...
. Ever converse all star or vans
. Wrist bands

-Clothing is about the same for emo girls.

Right, and btw all emo kids DONT cut themselves! JEEEZ
Aw look at the emo kid. He has cute hair ^^
