Get the Goods on Goth Style (pg. 4)

Get all the tips and help you need to master the goth look. From make-up to hair to fashionable goth clothing, weve got what every teen needs to know. - Page 4

First of all kattmaggot06, before you diss anyone, get your words right. It is Goth. Gothic is a type of art, literature, and roman architecture. Anyone can call themselves GOTH but don't mean it. Geez, before you get all hyped up and almost have a heart attack waiting for your computer to get over here so you can make a fool of yourself, understand that no one should be criticized over something they say. Geez. DeadVampireInside, learn what vampirism is before you say that it's a belief, got it? I'm a...we're not going into that because it might be offensive for all of you. Here's something for all of you to listen to, Get Real and Deal! Got it? Good. Now go back to your sad pathetic life.

1 I can't believe this article was posted. It's way too stereotypical. A) Marylin Manson is shock rock and Good Charlotte is pop punk. B) Switchblade Synphony, Rasputina, Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees and all them are real goth bands. C) Why does everyone bring Luciferians into the picture? For all uneducated people, Luciferians are worshippers of Satan. D)You can have your natural hair color if your goth. E) Ugh, I can't think of anything else I'm so irritated by all these articles and mad that people think spooky kids and Marylin Manson are goth. All the stereotypes and people who say, 'Ew, goth is icky. I mean, I don't like the preppy style because I personally believe that it's following the crowd but I don't post it everywhere or hate on them. Sad thing is I like those shoes... And I like Hot Topic and all, but it's looked down upon by most in the gothic community. I prefer European sites myself.

1 This is only my opinion, I didn't really read what you other guys put but I got the fact you were pretty annoyed - lol. But I think being Gothic is more than the whole mainstream Marilyn Manson crap. I don't think many Gothic people or "goths" are like that. Most of them are quiet, deep, like poetry and stuff like that. I'm into HIM, Static X, Deftones, Velvet Revolver, and Rage Against the Machine. I don't think anyone should be put into categories, and their whole way of thinking defined by one color - black. I'm more than that. I'm more than the make-up I wear. And about that - I mean the make-up is just how you feel, an expression of yourself. If you merely put it on so people can say, 'Oh look, there's a "goth".' Then OK, fair enough. I wear mine because it makes me feel good and I'm expressing myself lol. I wear black tutus and boots, not because I have seen other gothic people doing it, but because it makes me feel good. I don't think anyone should change themselves to fit in or be part of a trend. Gothic is a way of thinking, and I don't think it should be put into this mainstream way of thinking. But if you wanna wear pink, hell go for it, don't force anything!

1 You know what this article reminds me of? This Insta-Goth kit I saw. The only difference is that they were JOKING! This article is complete crap. Goth is a lifestyle and it cannot be learned. You'll only turn out to be a cheap imitation and that's just not goth. Oh and before I forget, Good Charlotte is NOT goth. I could go on and on about that but I won't. Anyway, being Goth is all about expression and individuality. There are absolutely no limits. And goth isn't all black. Personally I like to incorporate a little color into my style. And that's another thing. Style! We all have our own. That is why there are so many different responses to this article. In fact, not two goths are alike. We are unique, intelligent people not a stupid dress code! We don't have a special uniform that makes us goth so why should you make people believe we do? Now all you people saying, "Thanks so much. This article helped me out a lot." You would probably make fine goths as long as you don't fill you head with crap such as this. And Marilyn Manson is NOT goth either. Okay. Whew! Stay graceful, stay you.

1 Okay that was the biggest bunch of crap that I have ever read. You don't "go" goth, you just are. This article will help posers yeah, but it's so stereotypical. It made me angry just reading it. I want the five minutes in my life back that I just wasted reading that article, and writing this message.

1 I'm just writing this to prevent you from misleading anyone else: 1. Good Charlotte is NOT gothic, they're actually pretending to be "punk", and one of the farthest things from gothic I've ever seen. 2. Marilyn Manson and Slipknot are NOT gothic either, PLEASE stop saying that, it's killing me! 3. You can't "learn" to be gothic by wearing gothic clothes; it's actually a way of life. DO NOT think that you can "learn" to be gothic from an article, or indeed from anything. 4. To whoever wrote this article, don't you think that you should actually KNOW something about the gothic culture before sending an article full of misinformation out into the world where ignorant people can access it and mistake it for the truth? 5. If you want (real) gothic music, listen to The Sisters Of Mercy or Siouxsie and the Banshees.

1 Okay here ya go. Goth is not a style, its ones anger towards the world, thus expressing ones self with black clothing.

Gothic Style - Hot or Not?

  • Yeah, goth style is super cool.
  • I'm not into it but some of friends are.
  • No way! Goth style is no good.
  • I still don't really get the goth thing.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
