A goth is commonly known as a person or people who dress all in black, listen to death metal, are depressed all the time, and talk about commiting suicide.
Yet this is just a stereotype. Goths are friendly people, who will asociate with anyone, no matter what "genre" they are.

Goths differ to emos in that emos are unhappy about life, goths are just happy about black.

labels are convenient, yes, but goths have different styles too.

..gothic lolita-basically trying to look like china doll. theyre cute and they carry around toys, pretty nice lot of people, a lot of them have pink in their hair and whatnot, their hair being in pigtails or braids, etc.
..elegant gothic lolita-they look like people who lived in upper class england in the 1700s ish. top hats, tailcoats,ictorian dresses, lace, black clothing, with other colours on the dark side, i.e purple, dark green, blood red
..happy goth (mostly in japan)- they wear tonnes and tonnes of accessories, and the ultimate goal is to blind you iwth bright, happy colours.its adorable and they do in fact wear pink. quite alot of it. they wear black too, but mainly colours. all over. ( red, yellow, red, light blue, pink, etc)

goths most other places are supposed to be depressed gay rebels, which is not true, of course. trust me, go round asking 'those who are normal' if what they wear makes them happy and theyll say no. its just what they wear. it doesnt express much but for that this guy or that is man enough to wear pink. good for him.

it does hold true that most goths have dyed hair, wear black, and are a little unhappy.but its also true that even though you might be scared of a goth, theyre the nicest group of people youll ever meet if you stop insulting them. theyre pretty smart, leaning toward the artistic side and might be slightly obsessed with music. which by the way does have to be death metal. goths also like bands like the postal service and belle and sebastian.
go to google and look up harajuku or harajuku fashion lo and behold, different styles of goth! or just look up gothic lolita, elegant gothic lolita, etc. great fun, i assure you.

A complete waste of space and decent oxygen that could be used 2 keep a rapist or a murderer alive. they are quite simply the lowest and most scum-like form of life to ever crawl out of marilyn manson's drugged up arsehole (otherwise known as his mouth). Goths have the confidence of pee wee herman at a PTA meeting. They are known for cutting every essential vein in their body and are 100% of the time in a state of depression. I beg you if you're not one of these god-awful satan lovers then please note that goth hunting season is still going strong. When you smell that ludicrous smell of BO and grunge sweat take out your pistols, take out ur aks and bust a bigger black hole in them than is in their heart. First to hang 10 goth heads from green day's nostril hairs gets a free CD and pie (CD subject to availibility, pies are in constant supply so don't delay)
Smell, depression, black lipstick, white blusher and black eyeliner and black make-up. SICK!

A sub-culture in high school and early college that have fallen out with popular modern culture. They are also known as non-conformists. Most Goths try to create a "unique" and "original" style by becoming the opposite of what they hate. In doing so, they come to a conformist state of their own and exclude those who aren't "hardcore" or cool enough.

yes, we get it, not all people who wear black or have some gothic aspects are goths. however, when people refer to goths, they usually mean:

- weird people with pure white make-up... because that looks good....um.... oh wait no. usually they have black eyeshadow, and if they're a mega-goth they have it going down their face like tears or blood from the mouth.

- retards wherever you go that hang around places looking depressed and sad. they usually listen to shitty bands like cradle of filth and marilyn manson.

- people who come to school very late or don't come in at all. when asked why, the usual response is something like "I had my period for the 7th time this month" or "I was tired," - because obviously they are the only ones that feel tired in the morning.
Want to become a goth: a unique individual, rebelling against conformists? Just wear all the same clothes they do and listen to all the same music they do!

A label people give to themselves to see themselves in a certain way, and/or to hope that other people will see them in this way also. There are many definitions of dress-code and personality types, (some would say that they are really creative and intelligent, others would say that they are people who have experienced more pain than most people) but it's just a label that was invented by ordinary people and for ordinary people, probably out of attention-seeking. Now the word seems to be spoken in two ways: As an insult to people who seem this way, and by people who are this way to describe themselves or maybe friends of theirs.
Example I:
-"Hey, there's that stupid goth."
-"Yeah, what an asshole. Let's throw stuff at him/her."

Example II:
-"Oh yeah, I am SUCH a goth."
-"Can you define 'goth' for me, then?"
