emo
Emo is a genre of music.

Emocore is a type of rock music, originating from punk. It often describes feelings of love, and sometimes sadness, which is why people always stereotype 'emo kids' as constantly being depressed.

Emo does not mean emotional. It's true that this was the word used for the genre, but music besides emo can be emotional. An 'emo kid' is not an emotional person. Everybody has emotions, and people of any music taste and fashion style can be sensitive to emotions.

Emo is not a person, or a type of person.
At the very best, an 'emo kid' is someone who is a dedicated fan of emo bands.

It has nothing to do with wearing skinny jeans, bands shirts, tight sweaters, or thick-rimmed glasses. That's just a modern style that tons of kids (whether they like emocore or not) wear.

YOU ARE NOT EMO IF YOU CUT YOURSELF.

If you cut yourself, you have problems, no doubt. Self-mutilation is a symptom of bipolar disorder, chronic depression, and schizophrenia, along with many other mental conditions. Cutting yourself solves nothing. Some might think it helps, but it's just a useless coping mechanism that will only cause more problems in the long run.

If you cut yourself for attention, you are pathetic. There are other, healthier, less painful, less idiotic ways to get attention than drawing your own blood.

And as for all the people who think they know everything about emo kids, and that they're so very superior for making fun of them, you're full of bullshit.

If you can't find anything better to do with your time, or at least anyone more guilty to make fun of, you are about as pathetic as those attention seekers who cut themselves to get bitched at by you.
Best case scenario 'emo kid':
Smiling to my friend, I walked over and handed him an earbud so we could listen to our favourite band, Brand New. After we'd picked our song, I put my mp3 player back into the pocket of my baggy jeans and walked into school, talking to my friend.

Worst case scenario poser 'emo kid':
I shifted uncomfortably in my skinny jeans. They were way too tight, but I was pretty sure I saw some girls looking at me and giggling out of the corner of my eye. Maybe. I took out my iPod and turned up Dashboard Confessional as loud as it would go. As I saw what looked to me like fellow emos, I rolled up my sleeves inconspicuously to reveal a few cuts. They walked past quickly, not sparing me a second glance. Dejected, I turned my music back down in time to hear kids chanting none too quietly behind me"

E is for emotional, ruins everybody's day.
M is for miserable people.
O is for on the dark side, 'cause we have some fresh cookies! COOKIES! "

Emo
a "lifestyle" that really makes one ask, what are these people thinking? They think life is so bad because they've never had real problems to deal with, so they exploit every minor "tragedy" in their lives and make it seem like the earth is about to float into the sun.
emo kid: nobody understands my pain, what i feel is so much worse than anything anybody has ever gone through. ever.

(n): group of beings doomed to death by the being known as fire monkey. They're identified by tight pants, eye liner, bisexual tendencies, and attention seeking scars on their wrists.
Man I always have to tell the emos to buy bigger pants and to stop making out with my boyfriend. Remember emos, it's down the street not across the road.

emo
A steryotype for teenagers.
Emos generally have died black hair that covers part of the face (mainly the eyes) and wear tight fitting clothes.
The word 'emo' is short for 'emotional' and generally refers to someone of roughly the above description who 'is not afraid to' express their feelings of hatred about the world. For example, a person who openly feels wonderful about society is not emo. An emo feels hard done by and skeptical about society, and some become so depressed by their own dark thoughts that they try to 'end the nightmare' and commit suicide. The most comonly thought of way of doing this is slitting their wrists.
Some emos go a step further in expresing their feelings by being open about their sexual preferences, see 'emo boy kissing' for more info.
i hate the world, therefore, i am emo.

emo
another word for faggot!
all emo's deserve to die
they should all kill themselves instead of just threatening to!
literally, emo's are just people who take what is another groups style and make it their own, there all wanna-be's!
i.e: emo's stole pinstripes and drainpipes from the "punk" group

if you call someone emo and they deny it, they most likely are
and if they say they dont cut themselves, there just posers!
EMO: omgzz my life is a complete fiasco!
punk: stfu emofag!
