an emo kid isn't someone who sits in the back of class crying all day about how horrible the world is.they also don't sit at home cutting their wrists either{some do but not everyone}we're not morbidly depressed or obsessed with hurting ourselves.we do actually have the capacity to be happy.emo means emotional.we're more in touch with our feelings than your average person.we don't hate the world but rather see it as beautiful but also see how humanity has destroyed it{deal with it}the general bulk of a true emo kid's life is typically music.we listen to whatever we feel like because we like it not because it's"the current cool song" you can't define a true emo kid,they define themselves.
That emo kid staring out of the window writing poetry on the bus is the only who'll ever understand.

"Emo" is shortened form of "Emotical Hardcore" which may refer to either the way of dressing or the music genre.

"Emo kids" are correctly kids who choose to style themselves in a certain way (often with bangs hanging above one or both of the eyes) or listen to certain music (such as Sleeping With Sirens).

"Emo" or "Emo kid" may today also incorrectly refer to people who self harm (most likely cut) or complain about how there life situation sucks to get attention on social media

an emo kid is a boy/girl who is deeply in touch with their feelings and is not affraid to show them, we often wear dark clothes, tight jeans and small shirts, studded belts and wrist bands. We are not gays or fags just because we are emo, we do whatever the hell we want and dont give a shit, often we will have alot of peircings ad chill in isolated areas, away from the norm (average preppy people) we love emotional music and we are not affraid to cry, we will have long dark hair that often covers atleast one eye we see this world as a beautiful place. We are often obbsesed with love and hearts, because we dislike hate <3

Teenagers who are totally wrapped up in themselves (like all teenagers). They listen to corporate fed music deliberately designed to create yet another sub culture fashion statement for the purposes of selling product. They are following a trend carefully placed by marketing and advertising giants. They believe their rebellion? is there own as they are fed the belief everything is turning to shit. They will grow up and realise ALL of us are in the same shit and whineing about how hard done by they are is a futile waste of energy better spent getting on with it. In all fairness teens want to feel they are different and creative so another weird trend is no surprise.
Diary:I sat and cried listening to Murder Doll all night, then peroxided my really long fringe. I need more make up again.

Usually 13-18 years of age, these courageous individuals constitute one of the few stable market segments in the current American economy. Fueled by a seemingly endless supply of their parents money (and the considerably less-endless amount they make working at the mall after school), these brave crusaders for capitalism will purchase damn near anything that's black, 80's pop culture themed, spiky, tight-fitting, or otherwise sold at Hot Topic. They're also some of the top consumers of mobile phone data plans in the nation.

Unfortunately this positive contribution to so many bottom lines makes it impractical to ship them all to a desert island until they grow out of it.
The emo kid's outfit cost $300, but somehow she still looked like shit.

Or
I wonder if emo kids will still buy $20 t-shirts when their mom stops paying their rent?

An emo kid is one that mastered the art of attention whoring. An Emo kid likes to express his depressed mentality by dressing up like a child molester/goth hybrid. An emo kid will constantly deny that he's emo, no matter how obvious that he is. Emo kids tend to be emotional, where they are angry just because they are angry or depressed because they are depressed.
"Hey look at that emo kid cutting himself!"

"Fuck you! I'm not emo!" *cuts himself*

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.
