fireclown: Goth has become is a kind of shortcut term for depressed kid.


It did in the 80s. This isn't new.

fireclown: WarszawaScream: Why the heck does everyone always assume that every troubled, angsty teenager is a goth kid? Cripes sakes the rest of us goths would beat this kid up and take his lunch money.

Goth has become a kind of shortcut term for depressed kid.


I was hoenstly hoping to get more remarks about my idea for rubber chicken based goth art, but what the hell right.

But per comment. Generational generalising.

The folks my age, when teenagers are now breeding, and have been breeding for a while now. When we were growing up, "goth" was the term for used for the brooding weirdo kid who wore dark colors and vampire make up. It's only natural for them to transpose the term to newer generations, even if the term doesn't fit the new trend. Its the term that best fits tye users frame of refrence.

Madame Ovary: Haircuts are horrible for kids with sensory disorders.


No shiat. It used to be that my son damn near had to be sedated in order to get him a haircut. We went the Flobie route simply because it was the fastest. Hated the vacuum cleaner, too. But he digs my wife, and she's a neat freak, so she got him to enjoy running the vacuum cleaner. He does that on his own now. And as a result, he's more sensitized to the sensory stuff, and goes to the barber with me.

Best thing you can do for autistic kids is as much as possible, treat them like regular kids.


At this point, I'm doubting that he had autism. Maybe he had a learning disorder and mom was nuts in trying to deal with school who would not adapt curriculum unless there was a diagnosis of something like ASD. A learning disorder would be socially stigmatizing, STUPID!


He was an asshole, raised by assholes.

mithras_angel: Rent Party: tallguywithglasseson: "It's nice to meet you, Lisa"
"No, it's Liisa, with two i's. I can tell you were picturing it with one 'i'. It has two."

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.


And yet, they're still better than hipsters.


I go back and forth. The hipsters, at least, aren't getting their pankake makup all over everything, and you can take them someplace outside on a sunny day.

It's a conundrum, to be sure.

Ugh. I stopped giving a shiat what this whiney goth biatch had to say halfway through.

To the suprise of absolutely no one, it was mostly a narcasistic "people are just too stupid to really understand us, and don't put labels on us, and only we get to decide who is part of our group, not people who just don;t get it, man".

UNtil this whinatribe, I had never once seen him reffered to as a goth.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: St_Francis_P: DeathByGeekSquad: St_Francis_P: 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.

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 have no idea what you're talking about, or why you're addressing me with it, so here's a kitten:

[t0.gstatic.com image 257x196]

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


Probably one of those atheist fundamentalists who thinks he can convince people atheism isn't a religion if he preaches it loudly and violently enough.

Dear Self-proclaimed Spokesperson of the Goths,

I read the first couple of paragraphs.

Stop trying to cash in on this tragedy as publicity for your book.

(When you start off your article by denying you're seeking publicity for your book, it's obvious that's what you're doing)

Sincerely,
those of us who didn't realize Lanza was a Goth until you brought it up.

meat0918: Glitchwerks: ShawnDoc: 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.

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.



I carry a guisarme. It's pretty obscure, you've probably never heard of it.

You should go over to FOX Nation and tell them that. I immediately went there after the shooting went down because I dunno. I like seeing their seething hate. Lots of people in there were claiming that he and his mom were liberals and that their weak minds led him to commit the crime.

It's quite the right vs. left full froth word brawl over there.
