do you get called a goth for wearing chainmaille?
for me yes...
but its only a few kids who call me a goth and they are all the try hard kids who sneak out and smoke between periods at skool and will probably quit skool in year 10 and live off the doll for the rest of their live
lol 2 of those kids got suspended for 21 days for selling and buying cocain... in year 8!! they are sevearly F#$@ED UP

but my bro died his hair all black today and their was a bit left ova so i coloured a streak at the front black i like it:-)

and ill bet any amount of money some one will call me a goth next school day

any one got any personal experiences with D%#K heads?
(sorry if i offended any goths on this thread?)

My sister's boyfriend calls me a goth because I wear Doc Martens and listen to heavy metal music. I bought a trench coat on ebay so he'll have else something to try and piss me off about. I've thought about becoming a goth but I never quite understood what exactly is is that makes you one. I dont particulary care what people think of me anyway. Do they honestly think I ride a unicycle, make maille and stick drills in my nose because I want to be a normal everyday boring person like them? To quote loserkid182: You all laugh because i'm different. I laugh because you're all the same.

John Lennon once sang a song where he imagined a world with no religion at all, and how all the people would be living life in peace, which sounds like a pretty terrific philosophy to follow - but then again, John Lennon also sang a song about how he was an eggman and a walrus goo goo g'joob, so i'm not sure he was always 100 per cent reliable.

precisely! who wants to be like everyone else??? doesn't it make the world a much more interesting place having people like us who are different around?? Very Happy it's called being an individual, we march to our own drummer, and a lot of people just don't get it. i feel sorry for people who are too afraid of what someone else is going to say to be different. if you think about it you can be everyone's definition of "normal" and they'll still find something snide or bad to say about you, so why not be who or what you wanna be? at least give them something to talk about! Very Happy

Yea, I remember in school some people said "your gay because you make chainmaille" And I'm thinking: What??? where did you get that from? Yea, I get a lot of stuff like that. Almost everyone in my school hates me and about 80% of them are hardcore dickheads.

Oh and 2 girls and a boy were caught smoking marijuana in our school's girl's bathroom!

I get that all the time. But I enjoy harrassing those dumb people. Just stare blankly at them until they go away, or hiss, or pretend to put a curse on them or something (for some reason people think I can do that), the best thing is just to laugh (that really confuses em). The problem is people think anyone looking even remotely different from them is a goth or a punk, even if youre not really. And actually I consider it a compliment, as long as they dont call me an emo, that causes me to hit things.

not really considered a goth, i don't dress it, but i think i have the mindframe of one. a few years back, my youth group was doing a missing person's scavenger hunt at the water tower mall in chicago and i dressed goth just for the heck of it. only one piece of maille though. i want to do it again. the funnest part was going into bath and body works to buy a present for my finance'.

hehe. yeah, ive grown quite fond of my quote. (its not actually mine, but, ive claimed it none the less ok!!).

i am not a goth. i am a happy person, who likes to party, and socialise. 2 things which are quite the opposite of what a goth is meant to be. im also far from depressed.

one thing that makes people call me a goth though, is the way i dress and look. black nailpolish, black clothes, boots, my black leather vambrace with abou 300 spikes on it, and, when i go out, eye makeup... the thing is, i do it simply cause i like the look. its different to the mundaneity of jeans and a tight shirt that 95% of people wear in sydney.

add to that, my fascination with weapons, mediaeval things, and my love for punk rock, grunge and metal, and people pass judgement really fast. stupid them.

ive started going to goth raves now too, just cause the atmosphere is so damn great, and, its a bloody good time. oh, and siege, club blink, next friday. try and come along!


you all laugh cuz im different. i laugh cuz your all the same

its not an issue for me, i am involved in the goth culture, and find that i tend to prefer gothic aesthetics, but i do not consider myself a goth or any other label. i know that people say that i am all types of things, but who cares. its not like your friends do it.

i've never been called a goth but some people call me a hippy. Heres some advice: be the exact opposite of what you look like. for example, if kid at school walks up to me and calls me a hippy because i have long hair, i calmy explain to him the psychalogical influences related to his discretional generalizations, then threaten to burn his cat at the stake and eat it. people tend to get confused by the big words and pretend to know what i'm talking about, or look at me funny and walk away. Cool

I get called a goth or punk since I dress in black, and wear a spiked bracelet and chainmaille and listen to punk music. Some people tell me that since my hair (there is a lot of it, too) is so black that it looks like I dye it, so therefore I am gothic. If that makes sense to you, let me know, because it sure confuses me. I'm not any of tose labels. I'm just myself, and happy with that, whether others are or not.

Only people I've ever known to do that do not in any way get taken seriously. Actually, they're usually atention whores. And they bite people. Which bothers me. If you don't bite nice, I will smack you, regardless of whether or not you think it's okay to bite me. [/rant]

But, back to topic... most "goth" people i know are attention whores. They're conformists blathering about nonconformity. They try to make themselves appear different to compensate for any real semblance of a unique personality.
Then again, I know (very very few) people that are genuinely goth, a couple that dress that way just because it suits them (that small, nice, cute girl just wouldn't look the same if she shopped at Aeropostale instead of Hot Topic)... but they're mostly a bunch of fakes.
Just remember: You are unique, just like everybody else.
