Emos have been stereotypicalized as ppl that cut themselves. If u took a moment to actually see how these "emos" are feeling then maybe u would understand why they cut if they do. Some ppl might do it but this does not make them "emos".

Music wise, "emos" are seen to only listen to heavy metal and stuff like that. Have u ever thought that maybe they just like this music?? No. Because of all stereotypes that have been made, ppl that like this music immediately fall into the "emo" category.

These "emos" just dress like they do because they maybe want to stick out and not go with the crowd. This is perfectly fine to understand if u could be open minded but u r just so closed off in your little fantasy label-ridden world that u cant take a chance to think of these reasons.

So in future before u class anyone as an "emo" because they cut and/or like heavy music n wear dark clothes, at least get ur facts straight.

If someone classes themselves as an "emo" then its obviously because they are sick of being talked about and labelled that they have chosen to believe this as truth. At least have a bit of thought about these "emos" because theyre still ppl with feelings n stuff so at least have a thought about how u could be affecting them.

Some ppl go through a lot of shit in their lives and need ways to get it out. Dont judge them on how they do this, just go with it n try n actually help them.
Q:Oh he's such an emo
V:Naah.Maybe he's got some shit going on
Q:As if mann. Thatll be his excuse.If u look at his arms i bet theyll be cut
V:Gee mann.You shouldnt just judge ppl on idiotic stereotypes
Q:Whatever dude

People usually become emo when a lot of stress is in their lives. They cut themselves. The most common place they cut themselves is their wrists. It could also be anywhere else though. They find it pleasurable and they think that this physical pain will cover up their emotional pain.

Emo people usually wear black or gray clothing. Skinny jeans, eyeliner, skeletons (not always but mostly)and baggy sweaters are common for the typical emo person.

Their hair is usually black also. Side-bangs that cover most of one side of their face is very common.

An emo person tends to not talk to a lot people. They keep to themselves most of the time and are usually VERY skinny



Jamal: Did you see Jake today at school?
Mariposa: Yea. When he asked me for a piece of gum today, I saw his wrists.
Jamal: What did they look like?
Mariposa: There was blood stains and scars everywhere.
Jamal: O well that's nice *sarcastically*
Mariposa: I think he's emo.
Jamal: No duhhh

A word that people who are snobish and tend to range from jocks to preps enjoy defining, to make them feel superior and important. Said people are incapable of realizeing that they are the ones who created said emo.
jackass: "i define you as an emo therefore you MUST cut yourself, smoke dope, keep a diary, dress like a fag, hide behind your hair, and cry to your my chemical romance CD."

Noun
There are 2 possible variations of this word.

1. A person who due to circumstances, more often than not out of his control, is in a depressed state wherein the person can be happy and outgoing one moment to depressed and distant the next. Doesnt always have to dress in dark colors or have dark hair but is sometimes a sterotypical characteristic than may or may not be true in said case.

2. A person who actually has little wrong with their life but tells everyone they do as to attract attention. It is thought that by doing this they may be 'cool' or 'in' but in reality is not being who they are and is closely related to 'scene'
1. "Hey guys, you wanta hang after school today?"
After school
"Sorry guys, i just cant hang out right now... i dont even want to talk to anyone."

2. "When i go to this new school i think im gonna change my look. I hear 'emo' is popular there so ill stop by the store and get some hair dye and dark clothes"

its basically described by society as a type of person or is basiclly a insult all together but in real cases its a type of music evolved from punk rock just like many other that evolved from punk rock as well. In Standards emo is dead well not nesicarly dead but lets just say is not
so "easy" to find a REAL emo band now a days. If you people didnt know before Hawthorne Heights isnt emo and all the other bands out there such as like my chemical romance and what not are also not emo MCR is post punk or pop punk so is HH basically because most/all of there lyrics are sad or deperessing were in real life emo is about the instrumentals yes there a some emo music with no lyrics yes i know its ODD~~~~ the genre of emo orignated in the 1980s time period 1986 is basically the most accurate time period and died out in the early 1990s and pop punk is suppose to be there so called "resurrection" the whole clothing thing has nothing to do with emo. Emo was basically all about the music they basically did have a clothing to go with it but it was basic and not focused on the clothing was basically solid pocket tees and no brand clothing with earth colors black ,white, brown ect.


Now a days what you see tellum haircuts and multi colored hair and skinny jeans and stripped leggings and billions of more other things people call "emo" are actually "scene" Scene is a type of fashion that again originated from punk and has some of its aspects and like i said is called EMO by stupid people that have no knowledge at all and try to make people feel low and bad about them selfs.
Emo is also a stereotype which is not a true because a music can not be a person or anyother thing cause its impossiable. The Stereotype is that most of people that are apart of 3m0 are typically sad all day hate there life are gay cross dress and so on when in real life all this is untrue people just make up these fibs to make people or mad or just because they dont like the style or w.e and try to cause other people to hate that w.e thing it is and other people to harm it.



Some people actually try to make emo w.e a cult or something thats just stupid it is the real ordeal is its music that has died out and some other thing ressurected from and is totally different i think its wrong to separte your self from sociey yes it good to be different but separting your self or trying to be in a cult is wrong because with or with out the clothes or hair or acsessories your still a human being.

i personally like some real emo bands and i have my share of pop punk bands that i like i like all kinds of music i think theres good in all music but im just sick of these little groups or w.e that are trying to be created trying to dress in a particaller style and listening to only one type of music or w.e gets boring, limits your you fun intake ability and everything there are no phiscal border that says NO DONT GO INTO HOT TOPIC YOUR NOT LIKE THAT OMG ITS SOOO WRONQ people made clothes to sell they dont give a shit if you it likes right on you they just sell it to get money and if you think it really looks wrong on you then dont fucking wear it all clothes are the same just the fabric and design and how you wear it is different and creating group and such are ruining peoples choices and basically life because they are limiting people clothing choices and mixing clothing is bascially POSERISSHHH :| come on thats stupid im just really pissed off and amazed how this is a big fucking deal wear what you want and talk to the people you want listen to music you want and stfu if you want to be cool you wont waste fucking 600000000 dollars on clothes just to talk to angelina or micheal or just to be cool its just pointless.

For all you stupid people out there get your shit straight before you start talking and care about yourself and other fucking stuff that matter, and posers if being cool is fucking importaunt and following fashion and stuff is a need go ahead and waste 90343254235323255 dollars your just wasting your time

Emo people are very special individuals who aren't afraid to show their emotions, love music and fashion, and hate only the stereotypes they're put under. Very openminded. Undeserving of the stick they recieve. Not necessarily gay or bisexual as so popularly insinuated. Everone is different. Accept it.
These are some beautiful Emo lyrics:
"I watch the seasons pull up its own stage, to catch the last weekend of the week, before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced. Another sunsoaked season has been replaced. You have stolen my heart."
By favourite Emo.. band 'Dashboard Confessional.'

emotive hardcore- what emo stands for. emo is NOT short for emotional. An emo does NOT sit at home all day slitting their wrists. It is a following of emocore, hardcore, or scremo music. derived from the 80's typically there kinda geeky scene kids, but instead of being shallow and self centered they prefere to stick to things that are more important and meaningful.
some one who is emo doesnt care they get shouted at (by chevs) that there odd
