Gothic can mean a lot of things. Mainly to be devided among 3 categories.
1. Gothic is a music style.
2. Gothic is a clothing style.
3. Gothig is a way of thinking.

Opinions about what makes someone a real goth are very different. People can favour one of the three above things, without necessarily having to favour the other 2. A lot of time 2 or 3 of them are combined.

Gothic music came out of punk music. Punk music is mostly angry at the world. But goth was more saying: "There are a lot of evils in the world, and that makes me very sad." Gothics tend to make the world better and are very friendly people most of the times (every culture has rotten apples).
The clothing style contains a lot of corsets, dresses, spikes, hairfall/dreadlocks, military boots, etc.
A lot of people mistake gothic for being depressive, the clothing style only black, etc.
The gothic way of thinking is mostly kind. Goths tend to treat everything with the same respect, love nature, a small (or big) love for dark unknown things or fantasy (like vampire's, cemetary's, wearwolves) and accept everyone as they are.

Unlike how a lot of people think, gothic is not bound to any form of religion.
Wrong: "That kid is wearing nothing but black, what a goth."
Good: "You listen to industrial? What other gothic styles of music do you like?"
Good: "You like the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe? It has been quoted in Tim Burton's movie 'Vincent', which was very goth-like don't you think?"

i think people on this definition are mistaking gothic with alternative, a movement which took place in the 1990's.

gothic really isn't about individuality, that is more of a side effect.

PS: Justin Timberlake? Come on, you folks spend WAY too much time thinking about boy bands.
Rejection of conventional rules which originated from victorian social dogma, not the acceptance of diversity.

not all goths look sick and pale! its just make up! not all goths worship the devil! they paint their nails black cuz they like it and it looks cool! goths dont talk about stuff like how dark and shitty life is!
and by the way I AM GOTHIC!!!!! so if you insult them you are insulting me and i hate that!

all those people who hate goths are losers and are jealous! they paint their nails stupid, preppy colors and gossip all day. they have no idea what a goths life is like!

goths dont slit their wrists and write stupid poems!thats what most emos do. goths are just normal people who actually HAVE a sense of style! goths like to stand out and be different. we like our music and you like yours so leave it at that!

we are not miserable people! once again you are confusing us with emos. we like body peircings cuz they are awesome,cool and different. some of us even have tatoos. we dont give up our lives either! we dont worship death and we dont care about pain! we have many friends that we hang with all the time. Hot Topic is a place that we hang out and shop. you idiots have your place like Claires and shit like that.

WE ARE NOT FUCKED UP PEOPLE!!!!!
WE LOVE THE WAY WE ARE!!!!!

(n) A group of people who feel comfortable within each others company. There is no specific thing that defines what you need to do or be to fit into the goth scene (except of course the implied black clothing). People in the goth scene all have different musical tastes, follow different religions, have different occupations, hobbies, and fashion sense.
