Fatal error: Can't connect to MySQL server on '10.105.0.11' (4) in /var/www/esj/includes/cmsdb.php on line 16

So, did the server kill itself because it's just so goth?

SpookyFiles: I've known a few hot goth girls, but most of the female goths I've come across are fat

That's true. I should qualify my earlier statement to say that the goth get-up makes an attractive girl even hotter, IMO. But yes, a lot of goths are fatties.

Anita-Louise: I would much rather my daughter be a Goth in a corset than emulate Paris Hilton or Britney Spears and run around in a hanky with no underwear

Yes but the teachers and administrators don't agree with this preference.

After all, the Paris and Britney clones are so much more hittable!

(I guess)

Yeah, well then they're douchebags but then usually that's a job requirement for them.

I would have to venture into the Politics forum to find a statement more filled with WRONG than that.

Americans luckily can't take credit for Goth culture. It was European, and still is.

But the Japanese turned it into it's own artform.

I was so happy when I saw my younger cousins go from that high school quasi-emo quasi-death metal phase, straight into the full death metal punk hardcore scene. At least they'll grow out of that.

Tears of the clowns.

People in my high school regularly dressed far worse than that and never got so much as a sideways look from the deans. And that was 1987, in an uppity suburban school in Florida at that. I bet it won't be long until we see a follow-up story on the whole school wearing black eyeliner.

Though different, this is almost as bad as 8 years ago when Columbia County, Georgia high schools made students tuck in their shirts in a true post-Columbine knee-jerk reaction. Some kids started wearing shirts that said, "Guns don't kill people -- untucked shirts do."

Point being: let kids be kids, and quit telling them how to dress in high school. That's their parents' job, not the schools'. Some of those moronic comments on the story's page referred to the "real world" making people conform, blah, blah, blah...all those idiots should STFU and realize there "is no such thing as the real world," especially in high school. Besides, a lot of very sucecssful companies nowadays have much more relaxed standards of dress.

Besides, my money says that these kids *wanted* to be kicked out of school for the day.

If you want to get away with murder in school, get good grades. I got caught for vandalism, for ditching class, for all sorts of things, and always got a slap on the wrist. Never got sent home, no letters to the parents, nothing. Friends of mine who were C students caught serious hell for much less than the shiat I pulled.

Wow. Kids dress stupid and wear stupid makeup. At least they're not covering themselves up with "cool" and "rebellious" tattoos that say "butt-fark me! in Chinese.

I have a theory about this. Fat kids have it rough in high school. As a fat girl, you can be "the fat girl who wears boring clothes and keeps quiet and is generally invisible and nonexistent to everyone else", or you can be "the fat girl with crazy clothes who listens to some trippy weird bands". At least that way, you become a potential social entity in the hobbesian social world of high school. Heck, some guy might see you as a cool diva and want to date you.

I'm sure you shiat bats, honey. Jeez, the only thing more annoying than the geezers saying "STFU and GBTW" are the scene police.

Mugato: Maybe goths aren't trying to rebel or be non-conformist or make any kind of statement. Maybe they just like to dress that way. It's just a style, like any other style. I for one think goth girls are totally hot.

Killerclaw: They'd single me out then realize I was an AP student and then I'd get away with anything not a criminal offense more or less. This duel clique experience taught me one thing. YES the system is out to get the "unique" kids.

The standards for AP classes seem to have fallen considerably, haven't they?

Got to agree with that.
I graduated high school with most unexcused tardies, most unexcused absences, and most unexcused class cuts. Without telling me ahead of time, the teachers even handed me a freaking certificate, on the graduation stage, in front of several hundred people, awarding me for most absences. They were very happy to have me leave their school district, and didn't dare do anything to discipline me. Organized three school walk outs(allow smoking, immediately fire rent a cop security guards, immediately fire rent a cops or we file sexual harassment charges against security guards and the paedophile teachers). Forced a paedophile teacher to resign. Broke the paedophiles nose in a fight. Made a rent a cop cry in front of the study body(that was just a weird day). Played a part in having a principal resign after 2 months on the job(holy fark he was incompetent). Ran a campaign to have a friend and fellow student elected to school board, and we almost won.

I served one suspension day the last week of senior year for all that. You all should be happy I didn't decide to pursue politics.

Sort of was a goth. Trent Reznor inspired sillyness from early 1990's. long hair, all black clothes, saxophone and midi synth playing, just edgy enough to look the part. But I knew the owners of TVT records, and my first job was with Cradle of Filth's original label(they suck, still suck, and are nice people out of character). Was stoned every day of school for 2.5 years. I'd actually scare people though, so i was either goth or just crazy scary.

Having one of the highest GPAs and lots of AP college credits, plus college credits helps out. Also doing a work/study program is a good way to have teachers leave you the fark alone.

I don't care if they grow out of it, at least they will continue to mature and one day function in society. The damn emos are the future 40-something gay waiters of tomorrow.

Likewise... this will prolly out me to some farker out there that went to the same school as me but here's my rebellion.

Helped run the media center at my high school both my junior and senior year. My senior year, as sorta a prank.. what the hell, no one watches this shiat anyway, etc... we pretty much just farked our announcement for that day all over.

IN any event, besides all the obvious sexual innuendos, adolescent potty humor, etc.. some of us.. well all of us threw up one form or another of the shocker. I myself decided to use the showstopper.

We all ended up getting various forms of punishment, but because most of us had pretty damn decent grades we all got a slap on the wrist.

The only thing that pissed me off, was that the guys involved got suspended for a few days while the girls just got detention.... seemed sorta sexist at the time.

You guys are all missing out on the big picture here. The most hilarious part of this whole story is the comments posted directly below the article. That town doesn't just have a stick up it's ass, it's got a whole old growth forest shoved up there complete with stinky hippies and a legion of spotted owls.

If I lived there I'd want to cut myself too. Well, mostly other people. But still.

I couldn't care when i went to high school about 5-6 years ago how anyone dressed. I dressed the way I wanted to dress .. still was pulling chicks just being myself even though people always group you to a scene. I really didn't care but wasn't extreme in the way i dress.

Yup, they look like mimes more than goths. The principal probably had a mime & clown phobia.

If anyone ever shows me a mime marionette and a clown ventriloquist dummy at the same time, they will either be shrieked or punched to death.
