Top Ten Dumbest Goth StereotypesEven though I'm not goth, I have a lot of respect for them and think they are a really cool subculture and a lot of the stereotypes aren't true.
The Top Ten
I am a Christian! Just because I dress in mostly all black and act a little different and, to some people, weird, doesn't mean I'm a terrible person who worships Satan. I believe in God and that He loves me and saves me FROM Satan.
I am a Christian! Just because I wear black and act differently doesn't mean I'm a terrible person who worships Satan! I believe in God and that that he loves and saves me! I absolutely hate this stereotype!
I am a Christian! I hate it when people think I'm a bad person or that I worship Satan because of how I act and look! I believe in God and that he loves me and saves me FROM satan! - Meg21
It's a fashion choice not a religous choice
I hate it when different people say that "Goth is a phase". Um. No it's not. Goth is a lifestyle. If you don't know anything about the Gothic Subculture and you say that "it's a phase", might as well have a Goth to teach you about the Gothic Subculture.
Far from true - blackflower
If goth was just a faze, why is gothic architecture often treasured in countries, why are gothic poets often praised, and why is goth so awesome? - ToptenPizza
Only in Coronation Street. Craig and Rosie.
No! I love my family. I love my friends. There are few things I actually hate, but I do hate all of these stereotypes! - Meg21
Why would you hate everything as a goth? I don't get it. - Userguy44
How? - ElSherlock
THE ONLY THING THEY HATE IS PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT.
Goths, Emos, Punks, and Scenes are NOT the same thing (well, except Emos and Scenes are the same thing, but the difference between them are that Emos are depressed and Scenes are too happy). Goths came out of the Punk Subculture and Goths have different music genres like Post-Punk, Goth Rock, Goth Metal, and Symphonic Goth Metal. Punks have their own Subculture where they listen to all Punk genre music. Emos listens to Post-Hardcore, Emo, and Screamo. I can go all day on the differences.
TOTALLY NOT TRUE - Bean_Destroyer12
I tried to kill myself and no one knows
HECK NO! Some might have but all I know, including myself, don't.
The goth subculture has nothing to do with drugs, although it is dark, its also artistic - ToptenPizza
This is a stereotype that follows most groups that don't look like athletes or popular girls. - LizardKing99
Um no. Just no. I'm no Goth myself but just because they look all dark inside doesn't mean they go suicidal.
Not everyone in your life is gonna be that popular prep you dream to be. Honestly, I think goths are cool, and whatever you are, do you.
Just because we're different from most people, doesn't mean we're weird. - Meg21
They are not weird. They are dark, but not weird. - ToptenPizza
They are geiy and homo
It is true for some people but it is a good thing believe me.
True for some. Like me. - AnonymousChick
It's a subculture, not a secret society guys -_- - ToptenPizza
Why are we singled out on this, pretty much everyone is! - Meg21
Only with the seizures.
No .Emos are like that.
In ways, this can be true for some. But I actually like the dark because it's calm, quiet, and comforting, not crazy, loud, and bright. Is that wrong? No. - Meg21
Hot Topic doesn't exist in every country.
Wicca is a religion, Wiccans are as worthy as Christians or Buddhists or Unitarian Universalists, and not all goths are Wiccan.
Not only black my friend
Actually no, some goths do wear other colours, most of the time they will always mix with other colours and black for their fashion.
Maybe I don't like "normal" jobs
Is lifeguarding a 'normal' job? Because a lot of people are surprised when I say I am. - Meg21
I can't hang out with other goths because I don't know where they are.
I have so many friends who aren't goth and I am. So what?!
I knew no one goth when I was turning goth, but everyone says I'm this way because I 'fell into the wrong crowd' - Meg21
I mainly only had internet influences and my sister. But no, not friends.
False. It’s a dumb stereotype
