Are there honestly a lot of guys out there who are so fixated on the idea of a bra that they just can't help but stare at a strap

Yes.

brifar: mandatory age of 35 to be goth

New Moon Rabbit: However, when you are over the age of, say, 35, please go through your closet and get rid of those goth/emo or punk clothes.

I'm 33 - hurry, someone tell me who is right!

Daffydil, those are some gorgeous pictures.

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

Hate to break it to you this way, mom. I've ran with the "goth" kids, the "emo" cutter kids, the trendy 80's dance-crazy throw-back kids, the "indie" pot smoking kids, the punks, the skins, the meatball metal heads, the freaks, the tweaks, the neo-commie-pinko "Che" kids and the hippies with a cause - ANY CAUSE.

In conclusion, they're all socially diseased. Not to say that Paris Hilton and Britney Spears are immune (far from it), though the all above mentioned are having just as much (if not more) sex than you might think.

Crazy kids have crazy sex. What can I say, that whole business with the psycholgical make-up of the human mind - it's a biatch.

/Shiat, I've actually never met a crazy goth chick who wears panties.
//Real goth, mind you. Not this sad excuse for trend purging.

Actually in all honesty, although that purple mohawk on a fat 50 year old man (I can talk like that, I'm almost 50 myself) scared me, I don't care what people wear or what they do with their makeup and accessories... it really is none of my business.

So just do what makes you happy, and fark what people think of it.

Like, I'm such a fashion plate myself *rolls eyes*....

Ophelia's Snorkel: jtaker: Strangely enough, most of you argue that 'they all dress the same'. Isn't that the case with everyone who shops at AE, A&F, Hollister, etc? Everyone who shops at any store is buying the same clothes that thousands (millions?) of other people are buying as well. So, unless you make your own clothes; we're all conforming and dressing alike.

I wish more people realized this.


Here's the problem with that argument.

We, myself included, have never claimed to be unique by the means of our clothes. Rather, most and not all, have chosen to distinguish themselves by their wits and intellectual capacity.

I'm sorry, but if wearing a tattered fishnet shirt and "girl pants" is what separates you from the rest of society, you haven't the intellectual capacity to understand what being unique really is.

Not really picking on you. Sorry if it came across that way. It just made me laugh to see two comments so diametrically opposed.

Your guy with the mohawk is either doing it because he's wonderfully comfortable with himself or it's his attempt to score some freaky, freaky sex.
More power to him either way, right? :)

1. Principal Miller needs to demonstrate how eyeliner is more distracting than belly shirts and saggy pants. He then should consider reading through the comments left on that article by students and alum... Perhaps raise the standards a little? A high school education from ELHS seems to lack common grammar and spelling lessons, although perhaps students are distracted by the scary new ideas in the corner.

2. Everyone else needs to get off their fat high horses. Who cares what they wear under their eyes? And what is it to you if they become successful later in life? And to the other half, I say STOP ACTING SO MISUNDERSTOOD. Wear black if it makes you happy, but quit the constant goddamned biatching about it: your complaints = textbook definition of inconsequential.

3. And I really want to know why the emo/goth debate is so heated... you guys can hate life and intentionally fail suicides together!

I hope you didn't mean - me - personally. :)

Not quite sure what constitutes "girl pants" (I have a lawn), and while I admit I do have a fishnet shirt, it is only an old pair of tights that got a hole in the...um...crotch. Toes - I mean toes.

Impudent Domain: I was pretty rebellious as a teen, but I never understood trying to be part of the band wagon as being rebellious. These kids are the opposite of rebellious. They seem to want to be exactly like all the other little losers.

Wanna be different? Unique? Try looking nice and not tatting or piercing up.


I keep seeing this argument, but it's a fallacy. I don't believe the typical teenage desire to "rebel" is a desire to rebel against popular culture or fads. It's a desire to rebel against what they believe their parents' generation sees as normal. This seems to have been the case all through out history...there are quotes from ancient Greece about rebellious teens. Flappers, beatniks, hippies, young republicans, punks, goths, etc. It's not about being different from everyone. It's about distancing yourself from mom and dad.

but I thought they were deserving of remembrance.

/work blocks photobucket
//so I see a lot of white squares

Someone needs to repost a farkers summation of that pic. God damn that shiat was funny as hell, wished I saved it.

Labeled em by number and then went down the line describing each one.

Ask and ye shall receive. Credit it Kid Mojo for the fine work:



1- Big Guy - likes to kill ants w/ magnifying glass
2- Quiet Girl - compulsive masturbater, closet nympho, unfortunately doesn't shave her bush...
3- Video Game Goth - Best friends with #1, pines after #5
4- Other Big Guy - is also on the football team
5- Nice Girl - also called "Prude Girl", her parent's don't know she's a goth
6- Weird Guy - even his Goth friends think he's weird, probably molested as a child
7- Gay Guy - DEFINITELY molested as a child
8- The Leader - grows out of the Goth phase in college, unless he gets addicted to meth first
9- The Slut - she's convinced high school is a dick-sucking contest
10- Weird Girl - used to be a ballerina in Elementary school


no. 10 is a guy, i think he is gay

Former goth.... I guess. I was never that big into the scene, I dug the style. I still wear predominantly black.

I used to have the most awesome cloak evar. Thick, heavy. Very warm in the winter. Direct from the Isle of Skye. I miss it so.

These days I've just got a black leather kilt, which is also awesome, in a different way. Lemme tell you, the ladies love a man in a kilt.

Very Happy Halloween, then!

I thought about slapping on a wig and wearing my usual (unusual?) clothes, but that's just lazy. Made a ghostly white ensemble instead.

I'm mostly bothered by the drumbeat of conformity in the messages column under the article. Ick. Way more disturbing than a kid wearing too much eyeliner.

overlord_mike:

Complain to Kid Mojo about the list, he wrote it back in the original thread. I just reposted it.

Besides, just replace girl with guy and there you go. Still just as valid an appropriate. Perhaps even more so.

See your lucky though... you can dress up most of the time and not have much of a problem.

Myself.. I am SOOOO limited in what I can and can't get away with. Even got yelled at for wearing my boots one days because.. even though the pant legs hide them and they looked like business shoes... they weren't business shoes.


Damn tight ass office wads.

I've been thinking about that. When I graduate and get a full time job I want to move down south. I want to get a motorcycle and ride year round. Now I have these awesome Harley Davidson boots, so I wonder what my boss would say.

Schools have the right to enforce a dress code. Probably a good thing that will show kids that when they get a job, their employer can do likewise.
Baggy pants, body piercings, visible tatoos, are generally not permitted in most workplaces. Kids better learn this fact now.

/Of course, I attended school in the 60's and early 70's, so we had a fairly lax dress code. Everyone wore blue jeans and t-shirts. No Goths, no body piercings below the ear lobes, and very few tatoos.
//So there! Now get off my lawn, and wash your face, punks!

Ok, This thread is too funny. I have a 13 yr. old son, who says that he and his friends are "sorta emo". What ever THAT means. He likes to wear black and wants to dye his,naturaly white hair, black. We tried it before, it turned purple.

Anyway, he scared the crap out of his school recently. He hadn't finished his algebra homework. So when the teacher asked for it, my boy said "What difference does it make? We're all gonna die anyway." (and promptly burst into tears..hormones are a biatch)He spent the rest of the day in the counceling center. That was a Fri. The following Mon. he wore his dad's trench and combat boots to school. I had to laugh, 'cause I know why he's doing it. He likes to freak people out..

Where was I going with this???... Oh well, I don't remember..

Yep this. Every once in a while have the need to go shake my decrept ass at the goth bar for it has the best music around.

Lemme tell you, the ladies love a man in a kilt.

no 'fense, but I've met waaaay too many douchebags (or should I say Haggis sacks?) in kilts so unless the guy's from scotland, the kilt holds no power.

1. how about schools stop trying to parent kids, and let the parents do it.
2. how about schools teach instead of giving fashion advice
3. how about teachers learning how to work in a enviroment that rapidly changes

You cant have it both ways, either kids an be diverse or they conform, theres no middle ground.

I'm not particularly goth (I love some of the clothing and can't afford it), though I have my days. Those kids are not goth, and the school is just a bit anal (that makeup is about as "distracting" as someone wearing glasses!).

RamblingKey thanks for the DJ Sisen link! That guy's fashion sense is freaking amazing.

And wylkyn, I think my Deshemel passes for goth just fine:

I've since redone his makeup so he's not a black-dyed redhead. He's my evil little biatchy boy.
