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.

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.
Fag.
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.

FUCK YOU.

Emotional person or attention seeker. The generalisation that has come to the "emo" society is stupid, they have no clue how to create there own style and have fun, they slot in nicely with the million others. Allthough the name is stupid the steriotype is completely reasonable. Most people are just trying to get along with thier lives and do it there own way, it is hard when every catagory of personality is steriotyped, people cant be who they want anymore. We need to cut everyone some slack and stop the deprecation.
emmo people are dressed in black with a splash of white. emo people have radical and crazy hair cuts.

A person who usually acts depressed, dresses in very tight clothing (i.e, if male retro Vans skate shoes and sometimes womens jeans), listens to indie music, and in quite a few cases has life very good and just looks for something to be depressed about, but usually has no reason to be (or usually just act) depressed. They also usually have hair over one side of their face (see "AFI").

Desensitised word that is used by any person who likes, or is affiliated with rap,or who enjoys crap music in generla. It is a term used to encompass any form of rock music in a derogatory way. Originally referring to a narrow genre of Emotive metal and hard rock, it was used by MTV and other music channels to describe a bunch of bands who dress a certain way. People who listen to a certain type of music BECAUSE of the way they dress(ie skinny jeans, tight shirts) can be described as Emos(note the diffence to dressing a certain way to reflect their music choice). Emo is now a style of dress more than anything. Emos can also be described as hissy cutters. Emo was originally a type of good ol' fashioned pioneer rock and metal. But now its a word that is thrown around and makes all true rocker cringe.
Rap Guy: man, you listen to system of a down and Alice Copper and stuff? What an Emo!
Rock Guy: Shut up you inferior being, you know nothing. May your children be consumed by a thousand hungry spiders.

Emos are a group of people, or a trend that has influenced and encouraged suicidal tendencies and hatred towards life and everyone and everything in it. I pity them, and understand that they may have hard lives at home and such, but it isn't worth the self-destruction that they pour on themselves. Think about this, unless you're an Emo, then you're just plain wrong, and I don't give a damn what you think. If you think that Emos should die, you'd be rigt. But think about what their situation could be like at home. Overall, don't judge them onsight, leave that to God; he'll probably send them straight to hell.
Emos: Man im so depressed, im gonna go cut myself and drink myself to death cuz i have nothing better to do.

Me: Stop cutting youself. Don't be Emo, you'll just get criticised. Go fill you life with something meaningful, not drugs, alchohol and sex. Gain something which can't be taken from you ever.
