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.

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.

Gothic fashion is a clothing style worn by both male and female members of the Goth subculture. It is stereotyped as a dark, sometimes morbid, eroticized fashion and style of dress. Typical gothic fashion includes black dyed hair and black clothes. Both male and female goths wear dark eyeliner and dark fingernails

(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.
