Have you ever been labeled?? Been shouted at?? "Hey you EMO kid!!". Or whats the deal with the whole "Dirty Scene Kid Thing"??

Well we have!! And it sucks!!

Lets start by throwing some of the labels out there!

"Emo"







"Scene"






"Prep"









"Goth"





"Nerd"








"Gangster"
Believe it or not "emo" did originate from a type of music selection. Over the years it has evolved into more of a fashion statement and a stereotype often involving converse, skinny jeans, black, and side bangs. Unfortunately the media has twisted it into a "cult" that centers around depression, self-injury, and suicide. Note: Not All "emo" kids cut::

Often mistaken for the stereotype "emo" the typical scene kid is described as so- Big hair, bright clothing, young icons such as "Hello Kitty", "Dora", and "Ni-Hao Kai Lan", have a lot of confidence often mistaken for cockiness. A lot of unnecessary accessories, heavy make-up, and converse or skate shoes.

Is a shortened version of the word preparatory. Back in the day all the rich people that lived on the East Coast would send their children to preparatory schools, where they were taught manners and etiquette. Later it evolved into the typical american "popular kid". These kids are usually thought of as being shallow and superficial. While it is true that some of these people are infact shallow and superficial. Not every single one of them are exactly alike.

Tends to be confused with grunge and punk. Originating in the United Kingdom, goth is a branch of the post-punk era of the 1980's. They have been influenced by Gothic Literature and Horror Films. They often wear black clothing, heavy make-up, and a lot of chains.

The term "nerd" is often used in a derogatory way. They tend to be described as loners because peers don't accept them. They pursue intellectual activities instead of more conventional and social ones. They are mostly described as unattractive and shy and are considered as outcasts. Be nice to these guys. They'll probably be your boss one day. Note: Scene kids are often spotted wearing "nerd glasses" and "pro-nerd merchendise."

Gangsters originated from the Mafia in Italy. Today, they are seen wearing baggy trousers, oversized graphic t-shirts, Air Jordans, and large, ostentatious jewelry. They drive very large vehicles that either touch the ground, or requires a step ladder to get in.
(Let's not forget our dear friend General Larry Platt!!!! a.k.a."Pants on the ground! pan'ts on the ground! lookin' like a fool wit yo pants on the ground!")
These are just a few labels (stereotypes). It's not good to label yourself because others will follow it, just be yourself and never let peer pressure take you under. If your "friends" want to change you, they were never your friends at all. Look for people who accept you for who you are!! And remember, BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER ((Bonus points if you know what we're talking about))
