Top Ten False Emo StereotypesFettiMC
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. - Catlover2004
For sure not everyone does, there are some that do, like me. But not all of us. Some of us are actually fairly happy!
Not all of us cutV 10 Comments
I'm emo and attention is the opposite of what I want.
Nah, I'm not really emo or anything but I'm sure they become emo to get away from people. - CharismaticKat
What kind of emo wants attention!? Emo people don't decide to become emo, it's just who they are, people who like emo music, and are usually highly emotional. - Lanturnizer6
We don't want attention... Why do you think we're like this in the first place - Fox707V 5 Comments
I have no idea where this came from but not true.
Um, no - ThatEmoLoner
This is literallly the complete opposite of #1 lmao hahaa - AlphaQV 1 Comment
I keep my feelings hidden most of the time and hate to talk about them - Fox707
Well a lot of them do. - DarkBoi-X
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...
Help me in doing stuff D:V 1 Comment
Clearly people never once read emo poetry - RustyNail
People say my poems are good by I think everything I do is trash. - ThatEmoLoner
Whoa awesome poem. I write poems.
We have amazing poetry - Fox707V 2 Comments
Some are but again in not all. - CharismaticKat
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..
I spent pretty much all of this year in extreme depression - Lanturnizer6
Because most of them(Not all but a overwhelming majority) often FAKE depression or Anxiety. - DarkBoi-XV 3 Comments
Ever seen Black Veil Bride music? It's SUPER inspirational "In the end as we fade into the night. Who will tell the story of your life and who will remember your last goodbye? 'Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid to die"
Listen to Black Veil Brides, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, etc
Yes it's awful. It's feels that they try to hard to sound depressing and just end up failing. - AlphaQ
Lies - BreakFastBeast2005V 6 Comments
Where did this come from? I don't often wear makeup, but when I do, it's black and amazing.
Never wear makeup
I'm a boy. I don't wear any make up. - Lanturnizer6
I buy my own makeup - Fox707V 4 Comments
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.
My Chemical Romance Sucks To Be Honest. - AlphaQ
Wow I follow at least 40% of these stereotypes sorry.
I only have a few that I like more than others - Fox707V 17 Comments
Hasn't everyone at some point? - HappyMouse111
If they do, like me, they will at least wear short sleeves.
My closet is full of black, what else am I supposed to wear? Also, plenty of people do this anyways - Fox707
So, this ain't a stereotype this is something that everyone does on a weekly basis - RustyNailV 2 Comments
I don’t know if emos are this open, but i
doubt they are
I do not find that true like we just wanna be loved god damn it!
We like other people too. - Fox707
That's ridiculous. Not every emo is gay. There's also nothing wrong with being gay. At all. - ThatEmoLoner
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!
So they're gay even though they have girlfriends - Marine_Soldier
I'm bi so - Fox707V 6 Comments
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. - AlphaQ
I have straight black hair - Fox707V 7 Comments
...This one is kinda true... I mainly have it that way because I can barely see 9ut of my right eye - Fox707
No, but I do have side bangs and they get in my eyes a lot. - Catacorn
My hair covers both my res and I'm not emo cause my hair is dreadlocks. - AlphaQ
Sometimes both lol. - AlphaQV 2 Comments
Kinda want this some... who doesn't like Fall Out Boy?
*throws FOB shirt out window* totally a stereotype. - Straydogsick
Real emos prefer My Chemical Romance. Just saying.
I have a fob shirt. There's nothing wrong with that. - CharismaticKatV 2 Comments
I listen to a little bit of emo. - Croy987
We listen to other music too. I actually really like classic music. - Fox707
On my music playlist, it's only emo. - Catacorn
I listen to death metal,different kinds of rock, punk, and black metal. - ThatEmoLonerV 1 Comment
How is it self pitying
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. - KilljoyWithAPen
Only Patrick Stump and Gerard Way
Well some of us could be religious or just atheist... I'm personally pagan sooo yeah - Fox707V 5 Comments
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) - SansTheComic
Its fun to draw on your self
Everyone does that in my class. - mistyglow
Who doesn't? - Fox707V 4 Comments
Hot Topic doesn't exist in every country.
In Australia, we don't even have hot topic - Lanturnizer6
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 - AlphaQ
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. - AlphaQ
Both look somewhat similar bit are different.Goth and Emo fashion are different but sometimes they look similar.The music is even more different has goths usually listen to Gothic Rock,Post Punk,Industrial Rock(Depending on the band),Electro-Industrial(Depending on the band),Symphonic Metal,Dark Electro and even Nu Metal(Depending on the band) while Emos listen to Emo,Screamo,Post Hardcore(Depending on the band),Pop Punk(Depending on the band),Indie Rock(Depending on the band),Indie Pop(Depending on the band) and Metalcore(Depends on the band).-DarkBoi-XV 4 Comments
I am emo and I like some not all but some pop.
I listen to only some pop then the rest emo.
There's some pop I like - 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. - ThatEmoLoner
You don't know what happens at their house
Some of us personally don't like sharing our feelings unless it's with our close friends - Fox707V 1 Comment
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. - ThatEmoLoner
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. - Fox707
I‘m Emo too but I still care about my education. I’m in 6th grade and about to finish school in seven years. After that I want to go to a good college and return to school as a teacher. And if I’m still Emo at the time I hope they will be accepting and let me be.V 2 Comments
This is very true anyone who says otherwise is lying
Nope, not at all. The G-Note joke is annoying as hell. It ruined Welcome To The Black Parade for me, it's overrated, and everybody flips out when there isn't a warning about an upcoming G-Note. - Catacorn
I just start to sing along and sometimes jump because the volume is up so loud - Straydogsick
To be honest, I don't really like the G note for some reason. - Hades_Child_NecromancerV 1 Comment
I like pink.
I hate pink just because I don’t like it
Emos have probably suffered enough in their lives, why would they want to get in trouble? - Lanturnizer6
*Face palm* Really? We don't like attention on us. I get a panic attack when I get in trouble - Fox707
I get in trouble, but not on purpose. - ThatEmoLoner
FUDGE YOU THAT SO UNTRUEV 2 Comments
People, anyone, no just emos, cut because they are struggling and see suicide as a way to end their suffering. People don't understand what it's like trying to actually go to school having to walk around crossing your arms all day simply because you don't want people to see that you have cut yourself. - Lanturnizer6
This is not true at all even people that aren’t one of us cut
I’m pretty sure very few people cut for attention.
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
I didn't know about DnP until a couple of years ago to be honest - Fox707
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
This could be true for some, but not for all, you don't know what happens behind your backs
Some non Emo's have depression.
Not all Emos have depression. It just the way they are
Not true have my friends are "scene"
That the point of being Emo
I do - ThatEmoLoner
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.
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 - ThatEmoLoner
Legit, we're all paper
ARE YOU DENYING MY REAL IDENTITY JUST BECAUSE I'M ASIAN
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
I'm bi but my friend whom are emo are not - Fox707
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
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.
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, like many emo kids, watch anime. But there are some who don't watch or like anime.
I use black Echoes. I've had combat boots but I Don't use them anymore so no.
I do but not all emos
Some of us don't even have a Tumblr account. I personally haven't been on Tumblr in 3 years - Fox707
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
I mean I have, but not all of us have a bad enough home life to want to run away - Fox707
No... just no.
