History:
Emo was originally used to describe "emotional hardcore" music that was somewhat similar to rock and often had confessional lyrics.
The term "emo" was an abbreviation for "emotional hardcore"before being used to describe those who listened to that type of music.

Meaning:
Emo boys are skinny guys who usually wear dark colors and skinny jeans. Their hair usually covers at least one of their eyes, and some wear eyeliner. They are usually introverted, creative, sensitive to people's feelings and mysterious. Some are just ass-fags. Not all emo boys are "fags" who cry all the time and cut their wrists. Some are bisexual because they're open-minded, but don't flatter yourself and think all LGBTs are just out there to rape you.
They're just people, so of course, every one of them has their own variations and shit.
Emo skaters are the hottest though.
Friend: I will mentally have sex with all the emo boys I see on the street today.

Me: Amen, brotha.

The latest attempt by an increasingly hostile world to annoy me into eating a bullet.
The emo boy has the kind of pathetic need for attention normally only found in goths, drag queens and politicians.
Much like those three groups, emo boys dress and act the way they do not to gain public approval or disapproval, but to get validation of an otherwise vapid, meaningless existence.
Most will grow out of it, thank Xenu, and the few who don't will descend to the level of sad self-caricature before, mercifully, taking their own lives using the most whiny, overly-dramatic means at their disposal. The suicide note will most likely be on the last page of his journal and will probably take the form of a poem that is, much like the rest of the book's contents, noticeably bad.
"Hey, there's an emo boy, want to beat him up?"
"What's the point? Nothing we can do to him will make his existence any more sad and pathetic than it already is."

despite what many people think, emo boys are not all wrist cutting fags. yes, some of us wear make up, and some of us are homosexual or bisexual. emo means emotional. an emo boy is one who doesn't mind a good cry every now and then. he listens to any music he wants and doesn't care what other people think. they are not sad all the time, they are not emo because of family matters, and they are not emo because "its whats cool." they are very nice, (or complete assholes, it depends on who they are inside. I'm not going to lie and say I'm the nicest person in the world,) and they try not to judge other people. the one thing that annoys an emo boy more than anything is the stereotypes that follows emos. the aforementioned "wrist cutting fags" its a major stereotype. in short, we are generally nice people who accept other nice people. not to mention emo boys are pretty cute ;)
jock: hey, are you a wrist cutting fag?
emo boy: no, I'm not. i am a boy who is in touch with his emotions. i wasn't pushed too hard by my father to live up to his own failed dreams of glory. my mother was not overbearing. i don't have friends who only pretend to like me because I'm apart of their clique as the typical homophobic football player who showers with other guys in the locker room.

jock: *looks down* .. shut up..

A male usually aged 14-19 who is too weak and feels as if the world hates him so he cuts himself and listens to music that in later years blows his eardrums out and makes him deaf. Emo boys usually dress as if they don't care how they look but in reality they wake up 6 hours early in the morning to get ready for the day. Emo boys try to make themselves look as if they are the "perfect" boyfriends when in reality they trick females into dating them just to get into their pants.

Emo boys love the taste of blood and before they go to bed they usually cut themselves and cry in their pillows about how bad their life is when in reality they have it better than 70% of the United States population. Emo boys also never cut their hair and wear it to one side, they look like little kids whos balls haven't dropped.
Emo Boy: "I hate life, I hate myself, I hate my parents, I hate everything that moves."

Normal Guy: Shut the fuck up you queer.

Emo Boy: "Cries"

Emo boys (also known as scenes) are retarded, lying, annoying kids who look down on everyone, just because they think they are so cool. The most often place to find them is the internet, whereas they are obsessed with taking pictures of themselves while shirtless, even though they have the skinniest, whitest and most unattractive bodies, and talking about their (fake) problems, because they are oh so hot and cool. Their internet names are normally between the lines of XxemoboyxX1109, for the common emo, XxsinistercutsxX for the hardcore emo (pretensive and retarded nontheless, the only difference is that the vast majority claim to cut themselves, even if they don't, and if they do, its rare), and XxxlovefordinosxxX for the, er... more feminine type. The next most common place to spot the emo boys is at the shopping mall. You would know which kid is emo by their retarded clothing. They normally wear 'way too skinny' skinny jeans (the reason why most of the walk so weirdly), mainly black, and black band t-shirts. Their hair is always jet- black and extremely straight . Some of them sport blonde highlights and 'coon' tails, and all of them, I say ALL of them, wear Converse, and straighten their hair for hours every morning, right after putting on the eyeliner that they got their best girl friend to buy them (because being seen buying eyeliner is totally faggy, but wearing some isn't, of course).
(Damn. I even had to change boxes cuz my hatin' was so long) When it comes to defending their emo-ness, they always follow a pattern. First, they make up a fake story about how they've come to be emo, and how they have so many problems and like to cut themselves. Second, they defend their 'individuality', saying that it is a 'unique' way of expressing themselves (because there are NOT thousands of emo kids already that wear the exact same clothing they do, say the exact same things they do, and look the exact same way they do). They always say they can play the guitar, and, while most of them do have one, none of them can actually play one. They also claim that they write dark, sad songs and poetry. This isn't exactly a lie, because they do write songs, but they're so crappy and retarded they shouldn't really be called songs, and more like 'a vomit inducing mess of words bought only to the world to bring pain to the innocent'.

In conclusion, they suck, they should explode, and I will never stop hoping that the metalheads, hiphoppers, neutral people, pirates and ninjas (emos suck so much that even THEY joined forces) will go rouge on them and terminate them for good. (Hell, Ill even throw gangstas in there if it just stops the bitches already).

Example:
I have no doubt that emo boys will read this, hate me for writing it, click on the thumbs down button and continue writing their vomit inducing mess of words brought only to the world to bring pain to the innocent.
