One of the few respectable subcultures in that they're not retarded children who must make themselves the center of attention by moaning about slight imperfections grossly romanticized (emo) or equally stupid lemmings who try to follow random, often mixed up, misinformed and ignorant stereotypes surrounding certain subcultures (scenesters). Goths are truly artistic and are often very friendly and intelligent once you get to know them. They are often demonized by high school councilors who act like they have a fork stuck up their ass and mainstream media-slaves because of their popular association with Counter-culture religions and philosophies(i.e. Lucifinarianism, Wicca, etc.) this presumption is more often than not untrue and just goes to show how ignorant people can be.

Goths are often misunderstood because dispite artistic flavor and expression, it is often manifested in masochistic/sadist themes. And if you can't appreciate darker forms of expression, art, music and writing, go fuck yourself you pretentious little fucknut.

Goth is also respectable in that it's not about non-comformity. It's about free expression, not just shitting out reasons to stand against mainstream ideas just for the hell of it. People have reasons not to comform. And those who do it because they think that the mainstream is stupid or pretentious and ignorant or because they believe that that's just not who they are should be respected. But those who fake personalities and look up reasons to go against popular thinking in urbandictionary should be dragged behind the gym by Varsity football and beaten until their intestines start to spill from their mouth.
The kids who eat lunch by themselves, perhaps play with sharpies, may or may not have body tattoos or piercings (each to his/her own choice) take several art-based (fine art included) classes, hate preps and seem to be having more fun than most people.

The fucknuts who think that dressing in black and scratching copious amounts of eye-liner on and chanting about the rise of Satan to eat everyone's testes and ovaries makes them a non-comformist goth.

According to the historians Cassiodorus and Jordanes in the beginning of 200 A.D. The Roman Empire was attacked by a Germanic tribe from southern Scandinavia. A century later it split into 2 tribes, Ostrogoth meaning “eastern Goth” and Visigoth meaning “western Goth.” In 370 A.D. both were attacked by Huns. The Ostrogoths merged with them and the Visigoths fled from them to a Roman province called Thrace and revolted killing the Roman Army and Emperor Valens at Adrianople present day Edirne, Turkey in 378 A.D. During the early 400’s they invaded Italy under there King Alaric and sacked Rome in 410. The Ostrogoths freed themselves of the Huns in 454 and conquered Italy in 488 under their king Theodric the Great. Both Gothic tribes were then reunited under him in 507. The Visigoths then moved to Gaul/France and to Spain and their empire there lasted into 711. The Ostrgoth’s empire lasted to 553.
They were feared because captives were sacrificed to their war god Tyz, and because of this the name Goth became associated with bad behavior and violence. In medieval and modern day Spain, Visigoths were thought to be the origin of Spanish nobility and in Latin America is used as a racial term referring to the Spaniards who oppressed the Native Americans. The Goths were actually the first Germanic people to convert to Christianity and in the 12th century religious buildings, castles and graveyards were built in Gothic architecture which has led to a time period called the Gothic era. In the 19th century Gothic literature first appeared because the stories took place in such places and lead it to represent dark stories of horror. In the late 20th century it came to represent a style and sound of darkness leading to a misconception of what a goth truly is.
You don't call a French person German, and the same goes for calling a person who's not of gothic ancestry a goth.

Goths are a group of people who are just being themselves and in most cases don't actually label themsevles goth ( they are against labels in general)goth people are often artistic in some form and very creative. goth people are not super depressed people who decide to ware all black to piss off their parants (those who do this are posers). they are their own culture and would rather be themselves then fit in amoung a cookie cutter society.
Also most people asume they can't have fun, guess what they do have fun and laugh just like everyone else.
oh my god i'm going to be goth and be depressed and ware al black and like rebel against eerything
you are such a poser

A clique that was created in the eighties. A Goth is a person who’s similar to an Emo, but less “Whiny”. The whole Goth culture surrounds the concept of being “unique” (against conformity) and hating the mainstream. These people are highly hypocritical in the sense that they claim to go against conformity yet conform to the Goth lifestyle. Due to the overwhelming amount of depressed teenagers in the world, being Gothic no longer goes against the mainstream. They have become part of the mainstream society and thus must conform to become a Goth.
"Goth's need to learn to shut up and try fixing their problems instead of whining about them"
