The spoiler isn't to be read not unless you don't get about my point in attention.



Not all, but I think (this is the way I view it, i'm not saying i'm correct) most true emos slowly loose their grip on reality and themselves since they're almost ignored. To me, this explains their clothing. Dark and slight color that stands out to represent that little link from being known and unknown. Usually it's red or pink (i'm not sure, I haven't seen enough). Also this helps myself by answering for why they cut themselves.

Since they feel like they are on the border of known and unknown, they sometimes question themselves if they are really their or are they just ghosts of the unknown. The way we know we are still alive and well are the 5 senses. When somebody loses one of their senses in any part of their body, they usually freak out. Feeling happy, sad, or etc. doesn't exactly give the solid evidence that you're still existing. For example, when you sleep and start dreaming, the illusions may be delightful, depressing, or frightening. The feeling may seem real but it does actually garuntee that you're awake.

Pain. It's one of the simple things in dreams that can't be created as an illusion. When you're are in the dream, and you pinch yourself, you wouldn't feel pain (not unless you really pinched yourself while you were sleeping). Now my guess is that emos cut themselves to make sure of themselves that they are still among the living and not in the invisible realm. But since they are constantly being ignored, they keep on doing this reality check activity.

Again, this is only my opinion. You don't have the responsibility to read that whole essay. I just wanna practice my instant essay making skills and wanna give my reason to my thinking.

Well. to begin with. The Emo culture is NOT people who cut themselves, as we commonly believe today. They are in fact a style of music that descended from Punk. Emo band's don't play music that revolve around blood, pain, and cutting yourself. These rumors are false. The emo bands play music that describes their feelings and their human nature. Any REAL emo band does not sing about the forementioned items.

With the dawning of the twentieth century, people started, as blargh said, doing "reality checks" these people were later dubbed by psychiatrists as Emotionally Disturbed. Of course we can see how "Emotionally Disturbed" sounds a lot like Emo, and emo bands were the in thing at the time. So people started making up stupid BS that the emo bands were emotionally disturbed suicidal maniacs. From this erupted the lie that the word emo is in anyway indicative of a disturbed suicidal masochist.

So in short. If you mean the REAL emo's, then they are emo because they play rock music and convey their feelings and nature. If you mean the myth Emo's, then it is because of what blargh said.

Perhaps it's not so much the "I want to die" thing as just the person being really shy.. I get called emo a lot in a crowd because I have long hair and keep it over one half of my face as a security blanket. I look worried because I am worried about peoples. I can be more than a little crazy around my closest friends. But the only scar on my wrist is from buckling in my baby sisters' carseat! Ha ha. Or is it because I don't talk a lot? Or because I'm deep in thought at long periods at a time? Who knows perhaps it's all of them. But I like to smile too much to be emo.

For the poseurs out there, bandwagon mentality, perhaps?

For the real ones, I wouldn't know. Maybe real childhood experiences, imbalances of hormones, psychological deficiencies whatever.

Why do people turn emo? Which kind of emo? Hmmm...I am totally confused with that term.

With people who cut and cry, I think it stems from lack of control over their own lives.

For the people who are into "emo culture" (the music, the clothes, etc.), I believe it is just a phase. This emo culture will evolve and it will pass eventually. Most kids are emo because they want to fit in (although they claim they are emo because they want to be different).

I think the dude who wrote this article summed it up!

Emo’s, what are they? What do they look like? What do these people do?

Well I’m going to answer to you all of these questions in the following article, and please note I am not one these people. These people make me angry. I am writing this article so you can spot them out and deal to them in your own way. So shall we continue? Alright then, let’s get on with it. I am mainly going to be talking about Male Emo’s.

First, let’s start with what an emo actually is. An Emo is usually a teen who is depressed for; get this, no reason at all (well maybe having rich parents). All they do is go on about how dark the world is and wanting to end there so called “life”, although they never do.

Now I’ll tell you about their appearance. Emo’s usually have badly dyed, black hair. It covers their eyes, and is straightened, or sometimes a mop. The extreme Emo’s freshly dye there hair black every time they leave the house, and then have black fingernails because of it.

They sport around in tight black jeans (the tighter the better), with either a hoodie on top, or their favorite band t-shirt on. They sometimes have numerous amounts of piercing’s. Mainly below their lower lip. They wear thick eyeliner and sometimes black eye shadow around their eyes. Then there a some who have the lot, eyeliner, black eye shadow around their eyes and foundation all over their face. A classic example of this is the lead singer from My Chemical Romance, a band emos love to jam too.

Now that you know what emos look like and can spot them from a mile away, lets continue with what they are and what they do. Now emos hate their life right. Well it doesn’t end there they usually hate people, their parents; well pretty much everything. To ease this “everlasting” pain they’ll slit their wrists. Its sick right?

They love to kick it old school, and be as non-conforming as they can. One thing they do is play Super Nintendo; they’ll get a stack of old games but only play one. Thats their alternative to xbox

Now as a hardcore fan of music, this one sickens me the most. That damn music they listen to. It is terrible. Have you ever heard a song about how bad life is? Or a song about suicide? Basically just anything depressing. Well then, this would be classed as an “Emo” song. A prime example of this would be Simple Plan’s song “Welcome to my life”. More bands that this emo type thrive on would be,<>/p

My Chemical Romance
Bullet For My Valentine
AFI
I Write Sins Not Tragedies
Good Charlotte
Green Day (The New Stuff)
That’s all I can think of, they’d be much more but since I’m not an emo fan I wouldn’t know.

Then we come to our last topic of emo’s probably the worst yet, Emo boys kissing one another, I have no Idea why they do this. They claim they aren’t gay, but they do it anyway. I think it has something to do with sensitivity.

Well that about wraps it up my article on emo’s, I forgot to mention that their really sensitive and cry a lot. For example, the store runs out of their favorite treat; their day is ruined. They get picked on or beat up this could cause weeks even months of crying. Their girlfriend dumps them…Their life is ruined. Well now that you know who/what they are, its time to end this fad.
