Originally a style of architecture, such as the old cathedrals from 1400 AD.

It was also a music type, and followers of this music type are usually called 'goth's.

Now-a-days, anyone referred to as gothic have the stereotypical image of black clothes, dark make-up sometimes, and listening to heavy, dark music and may be considered depressed all the time and is sadistic. Most times this is not the case, example is my friends. Dressing the part is not 'gothic', which they don't seem to understand..sigh..

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).

Miserable fucks that give up in life because some bad shit happend to them so they where all black to show their pain and the death (similar to a funeral). They also listen to screaming, banging, miserable dark music to show their horrible tragic misery. They also get body piercings in strange/painful places to show how they are so miserable that the pain in the pierced areas cant compare to their misery.

Unfortunately, many people are delusioned into thinking they are "gothic" or "goths". Many times, so called gothic individuals are simply sad, poor, WHITE TRASH individuals who have no money, not to mention taste. They find themselves in their local hilbilly dollar general store and have to ask themselves "Do I buy needed items for my eleven children (God forbid cleaning supplies, because I live like a pig in filth)...OR...do I buy the two pack of SuperDuper Generic Extra Black Eyeliner so that I may attract other desperate, poor, filthy people so that I may actually have a friend?"

Many times "gothic" people are on welfare and are a general drain on society. Many goths are perpetual drug users who do not get along with the rest of society. They find themselves shying away from the mainstream due to an overwhelming sense of ambiguity and unimportance. They feel they can't fit in and are often ashamed of the trailer home they live in, so they adopt this tough guy (or girl) persona, covered in tattoos and black lipstick and disgustingly infected lip piercings in order to make most people steer clear of them, which generally works. If they have reproduced, they do not take care of their children very well. They often refer to themselves in the third person and act in a weird manner, most likely due to the drug haze they immerse themselves in on a daily basis. They entertain grand delusions they will make it big in such realms as art, writing, music and other creative arenas that they think may make them "special" or different. Many tell people they are well connected in music or art businesses and can "employ" or otherwise help sustain other's hopes and dreams, when they can barely sustain their own nutritional needs due to lack of fiscal and motivational resources.
These people are crying out for help and need to be pitied and offered assistance in the form of government housing to get them out of their trailer homes. Definite therapy is a must.
Anna and Rod are so sad they actually think they are gothic. They think they can actually be gothic tatoo artists and band groupies until they turn 30. Actually, they are just goth wannabe's and need some sincere help.
