Top Ten False Emo Stereotypes
The Top Ten
We don't do that. Some might because it let's out pain we feel but not all. I don't do that. I may be hiding certain feelings but I don't cut.
People who are depressed self harm. Being emo has nothing to do with it.
For sure not everyone does, there are some that do, like me. But not all of us. Some of us are actually fairly happy!
Be yourself unless you can be a borderline emo rocker girl...
Honestly, as a closeted emo, attention has always been the last thing in the world that I wanted. I spent pretty much all 4 years of high school dodging people and keeping to myself, save my 2-3 friends
I'm emo and attention is the opposite of what I want.
Most emos don't want much attention
*cough* attention is the worst *cough cough*
Why? Just...why? This is literally so stupid why would you pretend to hurt yourself if you don't?
I have no idea where this came from but not true.
Is this where #2 came from? Because niether are true. I either bottle it up or ignore it because I feel like no one wants to listen about my dumb problems
I keep my feelings hidden most of the time and hate to talk about them
Well a lot of them do.
We just want someone to listen to us. And then when yall want us to talk we don't because yall never wanted to hear it so then you call us mute...
Everyone gets depressed at some point in their lives, not just emo's.
You don't know what they live to at home..
Although sometimes it's a cry for help, it just could be attention seeking. Everybody wants to be heard, to be seen.
So just think before you say certain things..
This is true, I am very depressed
Again, not everyone is like me
Poetry is overrated. The only good poetry is in rap music. Emo poetry is the worst.
Clearly people never once read emo poetry
People say my poems are good by I think everything I do is trash.
Whoa awesome poem. I write poems.
I swear blood on the dance floor and brokencyde are crunkcore not emo
Their songs are so whiny and all the singers sound like the same teenage boys who just broke up and are probably recording it on 3 vodkas and whining some more.
Pop and rap songs are ten times worse than emo music. Pop/rap songs nowadays are always so dirty and stupid. Also, a lot of emo songs are pretty damn awesome (Welcome To The Black Parade, Wake Me Up When Septemper Ends, Bring Me To LIfe, etc.).
I will force anyone who says this to listen to Panic! and Green Day, I swear to GODDD-
Where did this come from? I don't often wear makeup, but when I do, it's black and amazing.
Never wear makeup
My mom doesn't even HAVE makeup like eyeliner so explain
Lol this is just a bad insult
I feel like only homophobes say this because NOT EVERY TYPE OF PERSON IS GAY OR STRAIGHT that's just homophobic
That's ridiculous. Not every emo is gay. There's also nothing wrong with being gay. At all.
This is so dumb.yes, there are emo's who are gay but its not because they're emo its just who they are
This is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard! I'm a girl emo and I'm man hungry! It's just totally obscene and ignorant, it's almost laughable!
First of all the music you listen to is pop-punk not emo (not saying My Chemical Romance isn't great). If you actually like the emo genre you would know emo is generally a very slow yet ruff unorthodox style of music often utilizing odd time signatures. Bands you would listen to would be Sunny Day Real Estate, American Football, and Christie Front Drive.
They use odd times signatures horribly, if you want good odd time signatures check out the classic rock genre and/or deep tracks from the 60's and 70's. Heck even hippie music. - Stalin
Literally, my Spotify playlist consists of mostly My Chemical Romance songs...so this is like 100% true for me
My Chemical Romance Sucks To Be Honest.
Wow I follow at least 40% of these stereotypes sorry.
Black is a good color and fits me well so I wear it regardless of the weather.
Hasn't everyone at some point?
Yeah maybe but black shorts and T-shirts exist. So what? Who honestly cares?
A lot of em do though, not all.. but not all emos wear all black all the time anyways so what's the point of this item?
That's more punk. Most emos (the ones I know and seen anyways) have either straight hair or scene hair
I have straight blue hair
I just have my regular hair, not dyed at all. The last time I've had permanent hair dye was the 6th grade.
Nah its usually straight and black and covers one eye.
...This one is kinda true... I mainly have it that way because I can barely see 9ut of my right eye
My hair covers both my res and I'm not emo cause my hair is dreadlocks.
I guess this is kinda true but eh
Sometimes both lol.
Kinda want this some... who doesn't like Fall Out Boy?
*throws FOB shirt out window* totally a stereotype.
Real emos prefer My Chemical Romance. Just saying.
I don't have a FOB shirt nor do I listen to Fall Out Boy.
Some emos (usually the younger ones) are really annoying about this. But at least for me, I've always liked at least one song from every genre. It's always good to take music with a grain of salt- if it's all the same then it'll eventually lose its charm.
I listen to a little bit of emo.
And what's wrong with that? Emo songs have a very deep message most of the time, not like you normal people who listen to songs about going to da club and getting laid and flexing. Bruh.
We listen to other music too. I actually really like classic music.
You can't just say "classic music" do you mean Classical, classic rock, classic opera, literally any subgenre of classic rock from the 60's and 70's?
HA! NOPE. Some of us are religious, and some of us are atheists ((because, let's be real, all you need to be a good person is Harry Potter)) but NONE OF US ARE SATANISTS. We look different, we listen to different music, we enjoy different pastimes. But just because we don't fit into society, or we don't look "normal", or most of us wear a lot of black, DOES NOT mean that we are all part of some evil devilish occult. *drops mic*
This is so stupid and untrue! I constantly have to put up with people at school calling me Satan and holding up crosses. It really pisses me off. I understand that some people who are emo may be Devil worshippers and that's completely their choice.
Only Patrick Stump and Gerard Way
I only sacrifice goats that's it
How is it self pitying
What? Being emo? lol its not
Drawing on yourself? Lmao noobs I went extreme and tatted myself.
It's fun. I just go to the dollar store and buy washables because it can be easy to wash off if you just want to doodle. (I'm not emo by the way)
Its fun to draw on your self
Everyone does that in my class.
Goth is actually a culture with its own alphabet. Easier than the Latin ABC too, hence both the original one and the one we follow nowadays. P.S when it comes to the subculture of being Goth is it NOT about stuff like how much of dark clothing you wear that matters. One person may look Goth, or even Emo or whatever but what if it has a persona pretty much like quite the opposite?
Goth I'm guessing came from gothic art.
They seem very similar.
They both came from punk.
Hot topic is the best and better than your name brands preps
Hot Topic doesn't exist in every country.
This isn’t a stereotype. This is a fact.
I’d rather shop at Gucci or Luis Vuitton fam, oh wait I’m not emo GaH o_O
I am emo and I like some not all but some pop.
I listen to only some pop then the rest emo.
I don't hate pop. I hate rap
There's some pop I like
True, there are so many idiotic blog posts about emos whining.
You don't know what they've been through. I saw my mother beaten over the head with a hammer, by my stepfather, who actually came after me with it. There's a kid at school who thinks his the funniest thing in the world. They mock me for being scared of hammers and for being fascinated with death. what?
Most Emos don't want to talk about their feelings.
You don't know what happens at their house
Lmao tell that to my $25,000 in student loans. Emos can get degrees, too
I don't like school because of the people in it, not because I don't care about my education. I actually care a lot.
I'm emo and I love school and learning
I care about education, I may not like history, but I love most of my classes.
I don't watch Dan and Phil.
Who's Dan and Phil? Genuinely curious
Dan and Pill is garbage.
I didn't know about DnP until a couple of years ago to be honest
*Face palm* Really? We don't like attention on us. I get a panic attack when I get in trouble
I get in trouble, but not on purpose.
We hate attention! Why would we?
