Just being themselves...every generation back to the dawn of time had to make a statement and carve a niche for themselves in this bleek world we call home.

Actually, I think they are getting in touch with their emotions. Use to be a 14 year old boy had to man-up and hide his feelings. Now with all the Oprah and Dr. Phil business, I think kids show what they are feeling. Is it wrong? I don't know. Will they grow out of it? I believe so.
Alway IMO only!

I agree, nothing wrong with them nor is it necessarily a cry for attention.

I agree with m69. Just being themselves. A phase. Remember our phases?? Especially the 80's...big hair, loud makeup, louder music. The 60's had the hippies. The 20's had the flappers. The 90's was grunge. No one has to approve, but it is a symbol of expression for the young people. They'll grow out of it...

well, i suppose that in high school i was classified as GOTH. So here are some of my reasons for why I dressed the way I did.

A. I thought the clothes were bitchin!!!
B. I didnt see the point of spending money on $30 shirts and $90 pants from Abercrombie when I could buy some $40 stylish Tripp pants and $15 band shirts (or possibly some Wal-mart clothes).
C. I felt that I could more freely express myself and felt more confident to say what I felt.

Thoes are just a few, Im not going to say that I "grew out of it" but I have incorporated some color to my wardrobe and do still have a couple goth pants and band shirts. There is nothing wrong with goths and emos, they are just finding themselves and expressing themselves.

Goths vote Democratic
Elmos just sit there and wiggle.

You can keep them both.

Tasteless...funny, but tasteless.lol
I find it interesting that (myself included when I was one) all teenagers want to be unique and express their individuality. But the mode of doing so is to look like all of thier friends.
As for the emos, why is it the only emotion(s) they show is sadness. They have to feel some others at some point, right?

"Emo" in the superficial sense usually embraced by young people is mostly a matter of attitude, musical taste and fashion sense.
Whereas self-injury is more a matter of being emotionally troubled and/or seriously depressed, and using self-injury as a means of escape or relief.
And while there is a fair amount of overlap, the two are far from synonymous.

I've known some people who fit the mould of "Emo" perfectly in appearance and attitude, but who I also knew for a fact had never hurt themselves.
And on the other hand, I've known some people who had serious issues with self-injury addiction, but otherwise were just like any other "Normal" person (Well, apart from the scars).

It just goes to show that you never can get an accurate impression of someone if you only go by stereotypes.

I'd only worry if he/she starts asking where you keep your straight razor / box cutters.
