emo has become an ever increasing style and one most "emo kids" are not emo they are just following the style and they are known as "scene". Now I don't label myself but i guess you could say i have clothes that can be classified as the emo fashion but an emo kid doesnt have to dress in the stereotypical skinny jeans band t and converse you can wear really anything...emo is a state of mind and a music style not all emos cut not all emos write poetry not all emos play instruments or sing not all emos do drugs and NOT ALL EMOS LIKE MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE AND FALL OUT BOY please people get that thrrough your heads i hear that all the time and not all do like those two bands from what i know most emo kids like alternative metal rock techno emo death metal and things of those genres they understand people and music and the world and emo kids will inslut people who deserve insulting and normally do not consider themselves emo IF YOU DO MEET SOMEONE WHO PROCLAIMS THEY ARE EMO AND SHOWS OFF THEIR SCARS THERES A 9/10 CHANCE THEY ARE A POSER OR LOOKING FOR ATTENTION also not all emo kids are bi and gay but being bi is also the new fad so that is my definition oh and you can play sports and stuff and still be emo
emo poser: LOOK AT MY SCARS I'M SO DEPRESSED
true emo: your making a fool of your self stop being a poser
emo poser:im not a poser see lok at my scars and my skinny jeans and band t-shirt
true emo:you put me to shame *shakes head an walks away*
emo poser: *cricket cricket cricket*
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".more...
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.
Emo is a fashion for young white people Bought on by Low Self Esteem.
Teenagers sometimes get low self esteem, and they don't understand why, Because it is Sub Conscious. Instead of figuring out how to Love Themselves again, and be happy, They cover themselves in a Modern, Young Goth Fashion. They hang with people who have the same self esteem issue, Thinking they are the only people who "Understand" them,
They don't even understand themselves.
Emos don't want you judging them (Even though they demand perfection with their make up and hair, Spending hours in the mirror making it look perfect.)
It's hard to not judge an Emo, When they are labeling themselves,
And when they want to be "Individuals", Even though they all listen to the same music, They all dress the same, Do their hair the same and talk the same way.
And when they want to be "Non Conformists", even though they all act the same way, They Non Conform by Wearing Black and Make Up, But When It Becomes The Point of a Fashion, Then you're conforming all over again.
When You "Judge" an Emo, They are hurt on the inside, And they feel that if they wear black, That can somehow protect them from being labeled, But nobody is easier to label than an Emo
"I'm an Emo, I'm not a boy, I'm not a person, I'm an Emo, so I'm judging myself but you mustn't judge me.
emo has alot of definitions on urban dictionary most of them make fun of what they THINK is emo. so i felt compelled to write what it really is.
most people would define emo:
fag dark clothing
poser hot topic
self mutilation sad
skinny jeans myspace whore
black rim glasses loser
but the real definition is far from any of these things. what people are discribing is POSER emo. real emo kids dress however they want and dont really care what people think about them. they are themselves, sometimes they might take their emotions too far, but that is with any emotion. emo kids ,contrary to popular belief, are not always sad,sometimes they show signs of being bipolar. one minute they will be happy, the next they might be sad or mad.(schitzophrenic behavior might also be displayed)they depend alot on their friends to to bring them up when they're down, but most of them love life to an extent.
THAT is the real definition of emo.
poser emo 1:oh, im so depressed!
poser emo 2:yeah, me too! lets go to hot topic and buy dark clothing and more eyeliner.
poser emo 1:then we could go to wal mart and buy some razor blades!
poser emo 2:yeah! when we come back we could sit around and play that new hawthorne heights cd and write sad poetry on our myspace blog.
********* ********* ********* ********* ********* *********
emo 1:dude, what do you want to do today?
emo 2:whatever is fun
emo 1:nevermind i just got sad all of a sudden
emo 2:oh come on, lets go over to emo 3's house, you know she can always cheer you up
emo 1: yeah you're right. lets go have some fun!
A bunch of mamby pamby spoon-fed fuckin fruitcakes that most people wanna kick in the back of the neck.
When shopping at the mall all i saw was a bunch of fuckin emasculated suburban emo kids talking on thier cell phones.
An Emo is a slang term that is enforced on someone by people who claim to be "cool". Real Emo's do not go round saying how much of an Emo they Are. There are Three types of Emo.
Type.1. Normal Emo.
some one who listens to music because they enjoy it and not because they think its cool. they also dont stop listnening to music just because the band has been "discovered". this type of emo does not go on huge shopping spree's at the most expensive stores to "buy" their look. they wear what they feal like and are comfortable to wear. they are not DEPRESSED, they are happy and normal human beings, they see the world as a wonderful place. its just inhabited by lost and depressed people.
Type2. Fag Emo.
This is the type of emo that gives Emo's a bad name. they go out and max out their daddy's credit card on the most expensive clothing, they find the most underground music. they can and dont even listen to it. they wear band t-shirt's even if they dont even know 3 songs or cant name the people in it.
This type of Emo is The least common. this type of Emo is one who rejects society all together and refuses to talk or co-operate with anyone who isnt an emo. they stand around and "look cool" they do things deliberatly to piss of comformists. this is the sort of emo that slits their wrists just so they can show it off.
EMO - is more fashion than anything else, the fashion is mainly wearing black, jet black hair (covering half the face), lip piercings, eyeliner. Sadly emo get stereotyped to being kids who sit and cut themselves which is crap. That is NOT emo thats just a sad thing called depression (get help!) and infact many "emos" disagree with self mutalation completely. Emos are said to be moody, dark and have bleak outlooks on life but most are happy and comfortable with their own styles.
Many bands are also considered to be emo such as My Chemical Romance, From First To Last, Hawthorne Heights, 30 Seconds To Mars etc as they sing on moody and sometimes death related themes.
Last note, dont judge or stereotype "emo" people especialy if you dont know them. You wouldnt want someone to judge you.
An "emo" guy might wear - black skinny jeans, black "band name hear" t-shirt, hair in his face, eyeliner.
