Has there ever been such a disparity in a genre as to the attractiveness of goth girls and goth boys?
 
2020-05-22 1:57:36 PM  
I remember back in the 80's, most all the goth chicks were hot, and they wanted nothing to do with me.  But then again, in the 80's, very few women wanted anything to do with me.

Punk, maybe?   Punk girls can be hot.  Punk guys can be too.  Unless they look more like Johnny Rotten, and less like Henry Rollins.

Physical attraction is for normal people, it is better to have a union based on a shared understanding that all is futile and we are all just corpses waiting to die.


Is what goth guys say to goth girls to get them in bed and what goth girls say to put off normal guys who say they are hot.

Every group of weirdos looks silly. They take on a new identity,put in effort to show the outgroups they won't confirm, and the ingroup they belong.

From that they fill, or attempt to, some void. They want the sense of kinship and belonging that the "normal" world denied them.

So I'm not gonna attack goths. Equally messed up people exist in all manner of less unpopular, more acceptable groups. People who lose their identity to a sports group or team, or a frat, skaters, bicycling, etc.

Hell, I'd be a member of one of those groups to fill my void, but I'm lazy and apathetic about my problems. I show the world I don't care with cargo shorts.

Like so many other things misunderstood & co-opted by those more interested in style than substance, in profit than progress, it's now a wan, pale shade of what once was and is no longer, haunting those who remember and continuing to influence those who never knew.

Which, in itself, is an attestation of all things Goth.

Kind of my point- they're still putting up new sets every day.   The stream of hot alt women never ends.

I can't believe that I've been so busy this week that I forgot. Well, at least I was wearing black & grey today, and to my own amusement "Disintegration" started playing on my phone's mp3 decoder as I clicked on this link, so that made an otherwise shiatty day of processing the laptops of the no-longer-employed a bit less awful.

I was goth from the late 80s till the late 90s still went to the odd club or show for ages after that. Indeed saw peter Murphy just a few years ago in sf.

I was in goth bands recorded some CD did some touring banged a few groupies was a good time.

A lot of really creative people in the scene. A lot of drama queens and stupid pretentious dipshiats too.

Maybe it was just coz I was a goth in the 80s and 90s when there weren't as many fattys around in general but fat goths was not my experience.  The chicks were hot dirty and easy.

I used to have that on a t-shirt and one day I wore it to the local Renn Faire. I was sitting down on a bench with my friend and some goth kids walked by. One of them stopped to read the shirt and just said, "Huh?" There was an elderly woman sitting next to me and she leaned forward, read my shirt, and just started laughing! She then nudged her friend who also read my shirt, looked at the confused goth and starting laughing, too. I felt a little bad for the goth but the reaction from the two older ladies was just so delightful.

I didn't know any fat Goths. I did know fat LARPers who dressed Goth for Vampire games. Most of the Goths I knew were thin. Heroin was popular among them because opium and Poe and other authors and artists.
