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.

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.

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.

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.

Speaking as a post-Goth, (you're never really post-Goth). We don't shoot people. We shoot amazing photography--whimsically. We're artists who are not afraid of the dark. We're colorblind and don't want to look ridiculous. We're melancholy, with a bit of morbid, and occasionally dreary. We are many things, and we are not totally afraid of colours (we use british spellings for stylistic reasons), we just like to fit in (with our own). We are usually bad dancers (but sometimes amazing world class dancers), and we like music with strong bass and dark tones. We would like to regulate the wearing of black, but understand that this is not as important as other issues and don't push our agenda.

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.
