sweatshirt with a hood and a very large pocket in front, capable of carrying, but not limited to, walkman and headphone, candy being smuggled into movie theatres, pencil and notebook, pet snake that your parents don't know about, and certain less-legal substances that you don't want people finding. Considered a signature by some, so not something you want anyone else in your area to have a similar one of. Worn around waist when too hot for otherwise, NEVER worn around neck, and if -for whatever reason- you're not wearing ANYTHING, they can be flung on the floor nearby wherever you are. Not generally meant for either sex, although if part of a couple, the dominant may prefer that the less-dominant wear his/her hoodie. If difficulty finding a unique hoodie, look in touristy shops next time you go on vacation.
"Yes, I KNOW I'm late, leave me alone!" she said, tightening her hoodie around her waist while frantically looking for her second boot.
Generally speaking, most goths hate the title. those that actually like the title are more often than not posers. They generally wear black, but many just wear colors that people won't expect (example: neon paisly-pattern pants (yes, i actually know someone that wears them on a regular basis)).
Goths are generally seen as depressed or clinically insane, but this is not neccesarily true. The depression came from the black clothes, i think, and the clinically insane rumor -so far as i know- sparked because they tend to be very open about conflicting sides of themselves -like a conscience and a rebel and all those other wierd urges- and some that i know give their contrasting sides names. hence shcitsophrenia rumors.
And no, goth is NOT in the music one listens to! some rides on the lyrics, but what really matters is WHY a person listens to their music. I actually have goth friends that admit to liking a few Britney Spears songs (*cold shivers*).
"Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
"Probably not, but I don't really want to wait for you to explain whatever you were going to explain, so yeah! great idea! You wear the fake beard, I'll hide in the ventilation shaft." <--actual dialogue
