Emo is a lifestyle that is stereo typed by many people who truley don't understand. Emo the stereotype is people that are depressed and who cut themselves. Those people are called self harmers.

Emo means emotional so as an example if you are emo you aren't sad you are realy sad(where the stereo type comes from which is a lot of the emo people so you see where the stereotype comes from), You aren't happy you are realy happy (Many people dont notice this as emo), you aren't angry you are realy angry,Etc.. Emo means you feel your emotions to an extreme.

Most emo's wear all black and listen to rock music(usualy screamo). True emo people have real problems they sometimes look like normal everyday people without the hair styles, makeup, and all the hate. The fakes are middle class-upper middle class kids who think they have real problems when in reality they dont. They take and dye their hair, start wearing black, and listen to screamo or metal, and "hate" their lives.

Emo people use music, the way they dress, and look to express themselves.
Emo people are milder than goth.
Emos are usualy the opposite of preps.

Emos have been stereotypicalized as ppl that cut themselves. If u took a moment to actually see how these "emos" are feeling then maybe u would understand why they cut if they do. Some ppl might do it but this does not make them "emos".

Music wise, "emos" are seen to only listen to heavy metal and stuff like that. Have u ever thought that maybe they just like this music?? No. Because of all stereotypes that have been made, ppl that like this music immediately fall into the "emo" category.

These "emos" just dress like they do because they maybe want to stick out and not go with the crowd. This is perfectly fine to understand if u could be open minded but u r just so closed off in your little fantasy label-ridden world that u cant take a chance to think of these reasons.

So in future before u class anyone as an "emo" because they cut and/or like heavy music n wear dark clothes, at least get ur facts straight.

If someone classes themselves as an "emo" then its obviously because they are sick of being talked about and labelled that they have chosen to believe this as truth. At least have a bit of thought about these "emos" because theyre still ppl with feelings n stuff so at least have a thought about how u could be affecting them.

Some ppl go through a lot of shit in their lives and need ways to get it out. Dont judge them on how they do this, just go with it n try n actually help them.

There are lots of different types of emos and they dont all cut or hate everything.
Emos pretty much love music. Its a big part of their lives. Not all emos cut themselves tho some do. If they do, its usually for a good reason and not just planned out for attention (unless they are wannabe emos)They have a certain style and many people hate them but I really dont understand why because they are just kids trying to find who they really are. They probably really do have hard lives. most people dont make shit up like that ok? if you have a good life i dont see why you would. Lots of them are looking for love. I know I am. So Dont judge them.

Name goth/pink kids choose from themselves when they want to differentiate themselves from other goth/punks when that is exactly what they are.

There is no emo or scene subculture its just all elements kids have stolen from bona fide subculture. And unlike goth and punk, you 'grow out' of emo usually in your mid 20s so really its just a kids dressing up thing.
Emo? Scene? Seriously just grow the fuck up.

Emo: I dont want to say to people I live in a house so I'll just use the term banana to refer to my house and go all PC brigade and equal rights on anyone who doesnt refer to my house as my banana.
