Black is a good color and fits me well so I wear it regardless of the weather.
Yeah maybe but black shorts and T-shirts exist. So what? Who honestly cares? - LesbianPotato48
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? - xEliHbkx
My closet is full of black, what else am I supposed to wear? Also, plenty of people do this anyways - Fox707V 5 Comments
That's more punk. Most emos (the ones I know and seen anyways) have either straight hair or scene hair - LesbianPotato48
I have straight black hair - Fox707

I just have my regular hair, not dyed at all. The last time I've had permanent hair dye was the 6th grade.V 8 Comments

Well, Fall Out Boy is the best. - mistyglow
*throws FOB shirt out window* totally a stereotype. - StraydogsickV 3 Comments
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. - LesbianPotato48
We listen to other music too. I actually really like classic music. - Fox707
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? - Stalin
I listen to a little bit of emo. - Croy987
On my music playlist, it's only emo. - CatacornV 2 Comments
What? Being emo? lol its not - LesbianPotato48
How is it self pitying
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. - KilljoyWithAPen
I'm an athesist! Who the crap thinks this bs! - LesbianPotato48
Well some of us could be religious or just atheist... I'm personally pagan sooo yeah - Fox707
This is a weird list... - mistyglowV 6 Comments
Litterally I don't know who doesn't do this in my school - LesbianPotato48
Who doesn't? - Fox707
Everyone does that in my class. - mistyglow
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) - SansTheComicV 5 Comments
They both came from punk. - XxembermasterxX
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. - AlphaQV 5 Comments
Hot topic is the best and better than your name brands preps - LesbianPotato48
Hot Topic doesn't exist in every country.

I’d rather shop at Gucci or Luis Vuitton fam, oh wait I’m not emo GaH o_O - AlphaQ
I don't hate pop after 2013

There's some pop I like - Fox707V 3 Comments
This was like #4 so no - LesbianPotato48
Some of us personally don't like sharing our feelings unless it's with our close friends - Fox707
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. - ThatEmoLonerV 2 Comments
I care about education, I may not like history, but I love most of my classes. - Fox707
I care about it. I do my homework and stuff. I just don't have a socail life. Those bratty cheerlearders (gag) probably care less about there grades that I do. - LesbianPotato48
That's not true.
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. - ThatEmoLonerV 3 Comments
I'm physically unable to cry (i'm not joking) so its like a stabbing feeling. - LesbianPotato48

I’m pretty sure very few people cut for attention.
This is not true at all even people that aren’t one of us cut
Depression can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, any traumatic event or genetics. Of course there are more ways that someone could have depression, just listening some that stick out to me
Uh depresion is genetic, so non emos have it, not all emos have it. - LesbianPotato48
Some non Emo's have depression.
Not all Emos have depression. It just the way they are
People don't fake depression. It's actually quite hard to considering there are many symptoms to depression that would make it very hard to fake, who wants to out time into that? People who you think are "faking depression" may actually have it and you should maybe try to be there for them. - Fox707
Uh you can't fake depresion. People with depresion often have feelings of worthlessness and therefore often don't take about it. And I have depresion and there are some very hard things to fake - LesbianPotato48
I don't watch Dan and Phil.
I didn't know about DnP until a couple of years ago to be honest - Fox707
I started watching D+P like 2 months ago (but before that I thought they were dating lmao) - LesbianPotato48
I mean, Ok do, but not all emo people do watch Dan and Phil. I didn't even know about DnP until my friend told me
Emos don't always cry. And if I were to cry, it would be for a really good reason. I never cry and I'm emo - LesbianPotato48
This could be true for some, but not for all, you don't know what happens behind your backs
In my opionon, emo style is kinda like scene style - LesbianPotato48
Not true have my friends are "scene"
The kids from south park swear a lot, and I hate swearing - LesbianPotato48
I have a trans and a non binary friend and I am NOTHING like them. I don't even know how this happend and why people think this but I know that I'm NOT TRANS - LesbianPotato48
OH GOD NO! Not all of us want to become or do become trans! My friends and plenty other emo people I've seen are not all trans not wanting to be. I'm personally nonbianry - Fox707
That the point of being Emo
I do - ThatEmoLoner
We don't hate life. If good things happen to us we would probably like life. But cheerleader sluts and cocky douchbags are always mocking us and making us hate life. - LesbianPotato48
You only hear they're complaints. They say good things to. Maybe if school bitches and man whores soul leave us alone maybe instead of assuming about you'll actually know us.
I'm pretty sure non-white peoples could pull of the style. So don't be racist - LesbianPotato48
Legit, we're all paper
Not trying to be rude, but if you're African American, it's a little hard to pull of the men style, hard but not impossible.
That's not true at all - ThatEmoLonerV 1 Comment
First its gay, now its bi. Make up your godamn minds! - LesbianPotato48
I'm bi but my friend whom are emo are not - Fox707
Not all of us are bi. I mean, some might be, but I'm not.
True for me here, but not all of us are bi
Emocore is a style of music. Emos arn't emocore. - LesbianPotato48
Emocore (emotive hardcore) is the first wave of emo (in the 80s) which consists of band like rites of spring, embrace, and arguably cap'n jazz while it lead to emotive post-hardcore (in the 90s) which then became shortened to simply emo. Bands in this genre are, early jimmy eat world, mineral, and sunny day real estate. Later on in the 2000 people in the industry noticed a difference in the new wave of pop punk and 90s pop punk (My Chemical Romance vs offspring) so they called bands with this new pop punk style emo, needless to say this angered the existing emo community, and lead to a lot tension between the two groups.
The false stereotype should be "Emo is scene" or "Emo is pop punk"
Emocore is a music style from the 90s.
Emo is a subculture from the 2000s and 2010s.
I hate when I talk about emo bands and then people say that I should listen to Jimmy Eat World for a good emo band. They are emocore and not emo. - Martin_Canine
Well a giant emo wave is from the 2000s, and also this isn't a stereotype. - LesbianPotato48
Finally someone who knows their history. I feel like jack black in school of rock, trying to explain the history of this branch of rock to the ignorant masses.
Emo is a genre dating back to the 80s with rites of spring founding the genre.
Gerard way actully said that the band was rock and roll, so this isn't true - LesbianPotato48
My Chemical Romance isn't emo when being compared to bands like Sunny Day Real Estate. - Catacorn
My Chemical Romance is pop punk. Emo is Sunny Day Real Estate, Braid, Empire Empiire, and mineral.
Listen to Sunny Day Real Estate (arguably the most important Emo band) and then listen to My Chemical romance, the two are nothing alike.
I had no idea this was a stereotype. It's hilarious. - random_emo
I don't watch anime. I'm like the only emo and non anime watcher I know - LesbianPotato48
I, like many emo kids, watch anime. But there are some who don't watch or like anime.
I have combat boots but combat boots are so popular (I think) that plenty of non emos own some - LesbianPotato48
I use black Echoes. I've had combat boots but I Don't use them anymore so no.
I do but not all emos
I don't have a tumblr so yeah - LesbianPotato48
Some of us don't even have a Tumblr account. I personally haven't been on Tumblr in 3 years - Fox707
After 47 retared statments and defending emos from them, not all emos wear makeup - LesbianPotato48
I tried when I was like 6 - LesbianPotato48
I mean I have, but not all of us have a bad enough home life to want to run away - Fox707
No... just no.
I do not find that true like we just wanna be loved god damn it!
I personally have never wanted to date another emo. I have more of the oppisites atract thing so I wouldn't date only an emo - LesbianPotato48
We like other people too. - Fox707
Not all emos say "like my soul" after saying or hearing the word black - LesbianPotato48
I don't know if emos are this open, but i
doubt they are
For some reason emos like playing hangman in thebathroom... it's weird and its happend 10 times
Its weird I know but they just like it
