Emo
Emo is a music type and sub-culture.
This will cover the sub-culture.
Emo is short for emotional.

People who are "Emo" tend to wear tight jeans and a black T-shirt or colourful T-shirt. Their hair is usually just past shoulder length, dyed black or white blonde and covers one eye.

A common belief is that emos are severely depressed suicidal homosexual melodramatic attention-seekers. This is not the case. It is true some are depressed/suicidal/homosexual/melodramatic/attention-seeking, but a lot of them aren't.

They are usually down to earth, easy to talk to, get along with, non-threatening. If your going through something tough in your life they are good people to talk to because they aren't judging, understand life and are able to keep secrets.

So don't be an emo-hater just because they're not "Mainstream" like you. They are just more deep, friendly and understanding then you.
Hater: Emos are severely depressed suicidal homosexual melodramatic attention-seekers that need to get over themselves.

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.

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.

emo
A steryotype for teenagers.
Emos generally have died black hair that covers part of the face (mainly the eyes) and wear tight fitting clothes.
The word 'emo' is short for 'emotional' and generally refers to someone of roughly the above description who 'is not afraid to' express their feelings of hatred about the world. For example, a person who openly feels wonderful about society is not emo. An emo feels hard done by and skeptical about society, and some become so depressed by their own dark thoughts that they try to 'end the nightmare' and commit suicide. The most comonly thought of way of doing this is slitting their wrists.
Some emos go a step further in expresing their feelings by being open about their sexual preferences, see 'emo boy kissing' for more info.
i hate the world, therefore, i am emo.

emo
another word for faggot!
all emo's deserve to die
they should all kill themselves instead of just threatening to!
literally, emo's are just people who take what is another groups style and make it their own, there all wanna-be's!
i.e: emo's stole pinstripes and drainpipes from the "punk" group

if you call someone emo and they deny it, they most likely are
and if they say they dont cut themselves, there just posers!
EMO: omgzz my life is a complete fiasco!
punk: stfu emofag!
