People still define other groups as "goth" or "jock" after they graduate high school?

The My Little Pony Killer: People still define other groups as "goth" or "jock" after they graduate high school?


Yeah, lots of middle-aged sorts still go to goth clubs etc. For one thing, if you're atheist or pagan etc., it's one place no one will look at you funny. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that some mindless reporters thought he was somehow goth.

Oh, I know. I've known quite a few people who attend goth clubs because they fit in there the best. I've just never seen them classify themselves as "goths" or anybody who is into sports as "jocks."
 
2012-12-18 11:54:25 AM  
Goths? You guys are still around?

How quaint.

FTFA: There are no photographs of him dressed as a Goth.

Well, I'm convinced now. The author has seen every single photo taken of this loser. I also take it that since we haven't seen any pictures of her having sex, she must be a virgin.

Yes.

You nerd.

In other news, Adam Lanza wasn't a goth, but he sure had mastered that whole crazy-eye thing. I think we need to lock up anyone who's got the crazy-eye thing going on. They're bound to shoot a bunch of people.

2012-12-18 01:50:11 PM  
In fact, since there are no area Goth kids quoted in any of the news reports reacting to this claim I think there's a pretty good chance that there were no Goths in Newtown

Oh my god your deductive reasoning is flawless. Where do I sign up to buy your book you brilliant Goth angel.
 
2012-12-18 01:53:24 PM  
Because as we all know, goth's usually carry a briefcase to school and dress in khaki's and button up shirts, often with a pocket protector. Its the defining goth look.

I never knew I was supposed to look a certain way if I was an atheist...

Oh, that's right, I'm one of those people that waves my middle finger as forced styles. Go fark yourself, I wear what I want, not what my interests tell me I should wear.

I dated her. Seriously.

I always thought the goffs were kinda funny before that. After that, I now know that they aren't funny at all. They're kind of sad, in that "really pathetic quest for attention" kind of way.

Yes, but was he Roman? Did he fight at all in the Gothic War? Did these battle scars cause him to flip out and murder?

Clearly he was dressing in an ironic fashion, so he must be a hipster!

We need to start rounding up all the hipsters then.

Hipsters carry axes and crossbows, because guns are too mainstream.

Try telling them you're an atheist, or (worse) a pagan. I've seen some unfortunate conversations that way.

Look Goths, representatives from Gaming, Violent Movies, Metal Music, Rap Music, Pornography, and Nerf (who invited themselves to the meeting) all got together and voted and it was decided that it was your turn to take the blame. I know you're upset because you took the blame before, but that just means you have the most experience. A lot of thought was put into trying to shift some of the blame onto those Brony or Steampunk weirdos, but no one can take them seriously, so it's up to you for the next few weeks to distract the nation from even thinking that it might need to change the way it things about gun laws and the culture surrounding them. So just jump on that grenade and take one for the team, please? We promise that next time we'll pass the blame onto the Gays or people who look different.

I found that to be delightfully 'wtf?' as well. I think you inadvertently hit a nerve with that one.

Wow. That article author is a bit hypocritical. She's writing an article about media inaccurately linking a group (goths) with a disliked individual/action (shooter and mass murder).

Then she puts this gem in her article:
The fact that the most media outlets who have run with this are generally tabloids or right-wing is not a surprise. That's what they do best, inflame and demonize. And so they picked up on one comment from one rather dubious source. The Associated Press quotes Newtown-area parent Catherine Urso outside a vigil on the Friday night as saying her college-age son knew the killer. "He just said he was very thin, very remote and was one of the goths." 

So... she publishes a media article linking a group (right-wing) with a disliked individual/action (publishing allegedly inaccurate information, inflaming, demonizing). Not to mention she performs no Fact Finding on whether they're right-wing media or that their information is inaccurate. In fact, the allegedly "inaccurate information" is from a cited AP source with witness testimony.

IRONIC EXPLOSION.

Turn?

Pretty sure that 20/20 pulled this same thing back during Columbine... and pretty much every time since, along with all the other usual suspects.

Gunderson: A) Goths don't shoot up schools, they kill Colonels as a couple.

B) Did anyone ask Bela Lugosi his take on this matter?
