Quoting Neckriper:

To fear us has been implanted in their brains by television and books. This happened in the fifties and a large amount in the seventies with the satanic cult scare (which was completly stupid i might add. But interesting none the less). Me personally i LOVE being feared it is so fun.

We fear the unusual and unknown it is our animalistic instincts to fear the unknown. But i mostly blame it on the television and those DAMN GOD LOVERS!!!!!!

''Oh Goth's are disciples of Satan'' or ''listining to rock music and dressing up with chains or piercings are the work of the Devil''. !!!!!!!!!IT'S THEIR FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I disagree with you, not all God Lovers are the same. Everyone is different and you are doing exactly what they are doing. You are putting them on into one stereotypical group and say they are all bad.

In my family there is a priest, an extreme catholic and people who regularily pratice and go to church. Even though this happens they accepted me and everyone else who is like me when someone took their time to explain to them that not everyone is the same.

I had a conversation about this with my uncle, who is a priest, and he agreed with me and said that all people are different and they should be accepted for who they are and not what they look like or the stereotype they are faced under.

Sterotypes is one of the most common reasons why people who do not fit into a certain social status are feared by that particular status.
For example, Muslims whom we fear because of terrorism from some of them, when in fact their religion resents anyone who is violent and is based on kindness to people.
The same is with goths, but we are so different from all the other social groups that none of them can understand us and it is coded into the human nature to fear anything which they do not understand.

society and holly wood media always shows us as the bad guys, rapists and baby killers etc. there are a hand full of people who actually take the time to know us before they can make a decision about what to think of us. Most goths are actually quite intelligent contrary to what the media says, most go on to college or become successful lawyers or doctors.

i would say that most gothic people (not the sad hot topic poster children of the current era mind you!) have more of an open mind. they can feel and believe and understand what others cannot.
although i was not really gothic, i was ridiculed as the kid most likely to kill everyone i saw. i was detained many times by security guards and counselors at my highschool and had my locker searched on more than one occasion.
i was made fun of for being the kid who would probably commit the next (OH WAIT.... I'M GONNA SAY IT!) Columbine. looking back on this ignorance, this stupidity i see that most "normal" people don't have the mental grasp to understand what we are or what we think.
"People fear what they do no understand, and what they do not understand, they try and destroy"

normal people just don't understand "goths" and stay out because they have a silly imaginations about us based on vampiric films and Marylin Manson.anyway if i fell in conversation with such pal without making theatrical poses he quickly loose distance. i advice better looking on what connects us with "normal" people than close yourself within a shell of a "cursed/chosen against the world" role and wait for paranoia,there are enough uncrossable differences

This topic makes me remember my days at school, wore my hair covering my entire face, everyone thought of me as the guy most likely to shoot up the school. But people that already know me, know that I was just as normal as anyother student.

But I don't understand why people fear whats different then them

Are you afraid of the dark? A question that speaks true to a lot more situations than many perceive. To see the dark as the unknown, something that can not be controlled.

As far as my expierences go, if anyone does fear a "goth" just for being a "goth", genberally it tends to be because they fear the idea that they camn not be controlled, they can not be known as easily as they would want.

What people don't know, they fear. What people can't control, they fear.

people have one rool: what i don't know-is bad,what is bad-I afraid,what i afraid-i hate.
some people think,that goths-are one of kids games. but that's not true,and you all know that.
maybe,we can lay less regard to their fears?:)
