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!
As a Christian, I do not believe this. I, in fact, know that Goth Christians exist. - SoongeBill
The other people who voted this have the right idea, but they're still wrong to an extent. Goth CAN be a phase for some people, but for others, they're just into goth rock, deathrock, darkwave, etc because they are, and they have no problem basing their fashion around it either. Goth itself is not a lifestyle, but a subculture. If anything, "gothic" would be the lifestyle, not "goth".
And lastly, the only components of the subculture are music, fashion and arguably, aesthetic. Meaning literature, art, and film have no place and aren't what make you goth; they're separate from the subculture. Gothic is a style and is completely different from the 80s post punk scene.
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.
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?
Far from true
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.
HECK NO! Some might have but all I know, including myself, don't.
I tried to kill myself and no one knows
I know someone who is a goth and she loves puppies, rainbows, unicorns, kittens, unipugs and fluffy horses wearing plastic unicorn hats dancing on rainbows!
No! I love my family. I love my friends. There are few things I actually hate, but I do hate all of these stereotypes!
They just have a great ability to seek out the bad in people so they are more selective then the average person.
Why would you hate everything as a goth? I don't get it.
Um no. Just no. I'm no Goth myself but just because they look all dark inside doesn't mean they go suicidal.
This is a stereotype that follows most groups that don't look like athletes or popular girls.
The goth subculture has nothing to do with drugs, although it is dark, its also artistic
It's a subculture, not a secret society guys -_-
It is true for some people but it is a good thing believe me.
True for some. Like me.
They are geiy and homo
Why are we singled out on this, pretty much everyone is!
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.
They are not weird. They are dark, but not weird.
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.
Only with the seizures.
No .Emos are like that.
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.
Actually no, some goths do wear other colours, most of the time they will always mix with other colours and black for their fashion.
Not only black my friend
Is lifeguarding a 'normal' job? Because a lot of people are surprised when I say I am.
Maybe I don't like "normal" jobs
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 mainly only had internet influences and my sister. But no, not friends.
I knew no one goth when I was turning goth, but everyone says I'm this way because I 'fell into the wrong crowd'
False. It’s a dumb stereotype
