Are there any Gothic people here past the age of 30 who still dress the part in obvious ways? I want to know there are people out there who actually take this way of life seriously.

Also, why have the people who are "nonmainstream" in general (not just Gothic people) not decided to actually make an effort to be college educated and maybe run a business where they can hire other nonmainstream people, such as Gothic people, juggalos, body mod people, subcultural people in general, people of nonmainstream religions, BDSM, transgendered, random individualists, ect. to work for them so that everyone within the community is self-sufficient and can be independent from the mainstream and not have to compromise who they are? It seems simple enough to do. Someone should have thought of this already.

Everybody in the United States is absolutely free to do this. It just takes hard work and the will to succeed. Why bother with trying to persuade others to change when the main point is to be free from social dictates and not care what people think? Besides, people that are set in their ways cannot be rationalized with. If you want something done right, you need to do it yourselves.
