Emo
A large subculture of mostly middle to high class(the poor can not afford the prices sadly) white teenagers that started in England,after the introduction to punk, when people started wearing black converse, thick rimmed glasses,long sweeping hair,and wrote songs with mostly melancholy lyrics.Today it basically describes anyone that does a broad mixture of these following things: wearing heavy amounts of eyeliner whether being girl or boy, wearing black nail polish, wearing black tight clothes that are usually bought either at hot topic, listening to what is labeled as emo music, being depressed, wearing converse, cutting themselves as a form of release, having hair that covers one eye, having a sad and anti social(accept in like groups of course) personlity, being obsessed with death and the thought of death, etc. Both genders are labeled as and are usually bi but i believe that this stage in many teenagers lives, including my own, where they become experimental and let their emotions take hold of them. Most of the time this is just that, a stage, and will probably pass before high school graduation. Most teens start this fad because they are socially outcast so they say and do things they wouldnt normally to try and fit in,much like any gang member. Sometimes these actions result from past traumas or any other countlessly possible things. Most emos are posers in the first place though,they do it to fit in,not because they actually like any of it or they just thought it was cool. Because of this and the fact that most of them are all too aware that they themselves are posers, the term has become an insult and can lead to confrontation in the group. If any other kids read this,than just remember that not all emos are posers in their little clicks where each of them is 'misunderstood'. Look for one that is willing to talk to all walks of life, you never know, you may actually like them.
Emoboy1: dude, your eyeliners smearing,let me fix it.
Emoboy2: thanks.......i love you *kiss*

Emogirl1: hey guys,look at all the cuts i made last night *shows the trophies for all to see*
Emogirl2: oh that is so bad ass,look at mine.

EMO. How to explain?
It's not an insult or something to be proud of. EMO is just another label that some person made up to use on them selves so they could be ''original''

Dosnt it have to do with something in the 90's about a type of rock? Emotive Hardcore. Or something like that. In the early 90s there was a movement in the hardcore genre that came to be known as "Emotive Hardcore," spearheaded by Rites Of Spring. Harder-core-than-thou kids, who swore by Dischord Records a la Minor Threat, actually coined the term "Emo" as something of a put-down for the kids who really liked Rites Of Spring, Indian Summer and this new wave of "Emotive" Hardcore bands. That's right, "Emo" was once not something kids called themselves. The field exploded outwards from there - Level-Plane Records has always been the most famous Emo label. Acts like Yaphet Kotto, I Hate Myself, Saetia, Hot Cross, A Day In Black And White, Funeral Diner, I Would Set Myself On Fire For You, You And I, and hosts of others came in the next decade. Most emo bands have since broken up, but there's still the occasional hold-out (again, the majority of Level-Plane Records' roster has been a procession of emo acts). Like most DIY hardcore/punk of the time, a majority found its way onto vinyl and not much else. Some people consider bands like Fugazi, and later Sunny Day Real Estate, a progression of emo, but personally, I don't quite follow that philosophy.

Things that are NOT emo;
-My Chemical Romance =nor is it gothic or punk or demonic=
-The Gap =Preps also shop there=
-Skater shoes =Okay, leave thoes to the SKATERS=
-Saying ''I feel emo today.'' ''I'm so emo, i make flowers cry'' ''I hate my life.'' '' I cut becuase I'm emo and depressed''
-Anti-depressants =okay, leave them to the ACTUALLY deppressed people. now wonder drugs are so expensive.=
- Having 1 million my space pix =Okay, no body needs to see your hair and mouth that many times=
Here is a Fakemo convo...

In the same vein as a murder of crows or a gaggle of geese, a grouping of emos is referred to as a pussy.
"Why is there always that pussy of emos sitting in the same place in the mall?"
"Yeah, way to be different by being exactly the same."

Emo
THIS IS A DEFINTION ON WHERE YOU CAN FIND EMOS.
Emos are like annoying little insects that you swat and they come back again, only much worse.
You see emo gay guys making out on SIMS.
You see 3/4 of the Youtube video population containing retarded slide shows on gay emo dudes, again kissing eachother or proposing to eachother.
You go to every single local show and there will be a pit containing emo girls who apparently think that they are on So You Think You Can Dance.
You go to every single dark depressing corner of the mall and you see emo children eating happy meals and snow cones.
You go to Kmart and Walmart and you see ten year old emo kiddies buying sour straps with their mommies whilst having THREE holes in each ear pierced. At that age already.
You go to the delivery sections of supermarkets and bus stops and see emo guys slouching together pretending they are depressed with this world, when really they are craning their necks trying to see if you are looking how in touch with their feelings they are whilst blowing half of their hair off their face without much success.
And, finally, you will see them the most falling on their fat arses in skating rinks.
Or, you could just go to local parks and watch two emo guys giggle together then pull a serious face once someone walks by to maintain their reputation. It's very entertaining.
This is a real example of a so called "tough" emo kid on my street.

*I'm walking to the Food Court in a mall and spot an emo dude I know*
Me: HIYA
Him: *sitting looking supposedly sensitive yet passive in his black wigga hoodie* Hi.
*he quickly puts something behind his back*
Me:Yo what's that behind ur back
Him:NOTHING NOTHING AT ALL
Me: K bye *starts to walk off*
*I quickly look back and see that he is holding a Happy Meal in one hand and the Happy Meal toy in the other*

I will not even mention his AGE as it will probably embarrass him.

Emo
a "lifestyle" that really makes one ask, what are these people thinking? They think life is so bad because they've never had real problems to deal with, so they exploit every minor "tragedy" in their lives and make it seem like the earth is about to float into the sun.
emo kid: nobody understands my pain, what i feel is so much worse than anything anybody has ever gone through. ever.

(n): group of beings doomed to death by the being known as fire monkey. They're identified by tight pants, eye liner, bisexual tendencies, and attention seeking scars on their wrists.
Man I always have to tell the emos to buy bigger pants and to stop making out with my boyfriend. Remember emos, it's down the street not across the road.
