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.

need to get over themselves.
Most emos are well-off melodramatic losers, who have things better off than some people.

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.

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.

a way of life that is either often rejected or misinterpreted. those that are emo will never admit to actually being emo because then that would be another form of conforming to a meaningless consumer driven life. emos are driven in a meaningless life but they do not allow themselves to become consumed in materialistic items. they are vampires to society, never will they accepted. nor do they wish to be. they view life as constantly shitting on them and personally i agree. life does always find its little ways of making those humble suffer enernally
emo is a way of life often misinterpreted as a fashion statement

if all of u think that emo is short for emotional then u r all emo. every one has emotions and get emotioinal. emos are comfortable with showing their emotions unlike the rest of you who are too pussy to show your emotions. GROW THE FUCK UP! so leave us "EMOS" alone. and for thoes of u who think that My Chemical Romance is emo u are greatly mistaken. they are the best band and are great at what they do. so leave them alone. they actually help to save peoples lives.
everyone is free to express themselves emos actually do it!
and me, C, i'm "emo", an honor student and my best friend is a cheerleader so what now!
