Well said all! Some very interesting and quite refreshing view points, in fact might i go on to say they're some of the FUNNIEST JOKES AND ANECDOTES i've ever heard! And can i just thank our good friend Mr Daft for some of the most riveting and comically entertaining material i've seen in a long time! This guy, ladies and gentlemen is what is commonly referred to as SHEAR / DEAD / BRILL! Be sure and check out his entries on some of the other threads! Great vulue, save that i think i may now have a hernia from laughing!
...envy our ability to put our own thoughts and opinions before anyone eleses...
Funny.. I noticed how quickly it became "Us" vs. "Them" I find this kind of funny coming from so many people who pride themselves on being open minded..
And if They stare, well I'd imagine either they are interested, or wary from a past unpleasant encounter with troublemakers sharing similar fashion tastes. I know whenever I sport a cape in public I get people reaching protectivly for their necks..
And to comment on:
I'm not sure I understand how this makes anyone different from anyone else. As far as I can tell, each and every individual person values their own opinion far more then anyone else's.
That's pretty cool about the pirate outfit though :D I wish I was that clever on short notice, lol.
Emo's are cool, i consider my self more of an emo than a goth, although i do listen to a lot of gothic music-i personally think thiers a thin line between the two.
In my opinion i think those who stare and are curious about Goth's and the like, envy our ability to put our own thoughts and opinions before anyone eleses.
I remember in my last year of secondary school it was our last non uniform day and i came dressed as a pirate,anyway it was great coz i love dressing up and ignored peoples comments coz at the end of the day there was a lot of people with eyeliner moustaches (i went to an all girl school)! It just goes to show it only takes one person to test the water and others will follow!
Hmmm... you have a point there. It' not because they want to look like us, it's because they trouble themselves with the question: how come we are not ashamed of how we look?. But that kind of people definitely have more problems than we do. And I say F**k'em;)
