Get all the tips and help you need to master the goth look. From make-up to hair to fashionable goth clothing, we've 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.

Shouldn't this be titled like, "Suicide Isn't the Answer" or something.

Why? You're worth so much more than that. You deserve to live, don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. You're an amazing human being, you're capable of so much more than you think you are. You're special. I know you probably think you aren't but you must certainly are. The idiots who tell you to commit suicide, well, as I said, they're IDIOTS. I know life sucks sometimes with them but don't let that end your life. Don't let them win. Prove them wrong. They're not worth your thoughts, why bother letting them take your life? They're not worth the amazing person that you are. Don't let them stop you from living your dreams, because they aren't worth them. They're just a bunch of jerks who have no heart, the devil took theirs away, don't let them take yours. Thanks for reading this. You're a great person and I really hope you decide not to do that to yourself. If you need anyone to talk to, I'm always available for you. -HannahG

So go grab your parents and your siblings, and listen to My Rant To Parents Across America(or mainly to my own parents, since this is what I'd tell mine). #1. The relationship between a child and his or her parent is NOT a dictatorship. Sorry to burst your bubble but it's not. See, dictators are cruel to prisoners of war or basically ANYONE and push them around in any way they want because their people should obey them. The dictator's people are his slaves. Because they should obey them, because he keeps them alive. In your case, you think that you should be the dictator because you gave them the gift of life, making them owe you themselves. Well, see, um, no. You gave them the gift of life because you LOVED them! You knew that your child may make mistakes, and you didn't care because you loved them more than anything else. You didn't give them life so they could be your slave, you gave them life because you loved them enough to let them live with you. Which brings me to my next point.... #2. Don't compare your child to other children. Don't tell them you like that person better. I thought that you loved them so much you wouldn't care about their mistakes, you gave them life knowing they may not be the best of the best, but you loved them so much you wouldn't care! Do you not have that unconditional love between a parent and their child now? Because if not, maybe you should leave yours at an adoption center and go adopt the child you're comparing them too, because they're OBVIOUSLY better. The second reason why you should never compare is because, see, I don't care if you are bff's with them on social media sites, or how often you speak to them, you probably don't know your child as good as you think. You may not know what they're going through. They may not have been the lead in the school play, but most of this generation can actually be really good at acting when you're around. So many parents think that they know their child so well, when they haven't a clue. You don't see what goes on outside that door of your house. They can hide it if they're being bullied. And you just made it worse by comparing them to someone else. This world will tear them APART. To pieces, until all that's left is a small atom left inside of them. They need to know that there's always gonna be someone there for them when they're hurting, when this world has crushed them to bits. Someone who loves them, who doesn't think anyone else in the world is better than them. You're not giving them that message when you compare them to another. And also, you don't even know the person you're comparing them to most of the time. That child could be screwed in the head and you'd have no idea. They could be a much worse child than yours is. #3. Yes, I WILL make mistakes. I'm not perfect. I'm sorry. I wish I were too. But I'm not, and you need to accept that! It hurts me when you're insulting me. That stuff makes me feel bad. You don't even know the effect you have on me. I know I say I don't care. But guess what? I'm the best actor there is at saying that. I do care. And it really hurts me when you insult me. Like, seriously, I just got home after being bullied by a girl who called my fashion style stupid, and you're treating me worse than she did. You don't know what's going on in my life! Why do you hurt me? For all you know, I could be a suicidal who's cutting themselves every night(I'm not, just using it as an example. I love life. But what other way can I get to you than by lying?)! You don't know! What if that insult could be the one thing that leads me to suicide? What if I'm gone tomorrow? I bet you'll have wished you hadn't said that now. The parents, they probably know who they are, they go insulting their child and guess what happens the next day? They're bringing a knife to their heart! Those parents feel like absolute ####, and they wish they hadn't said that. I'm not suicidal or anything, but what if someone else is? What if you don't know who that person is? You probably don't know. You don't have any idea at all the effect you can have on people. If it were me, I'd want my effect to be good. Your compliment could mean the difference of a lifetime and you'd never know. You have no idea. Please take my word, and pass this on. And thank you for reading this. -HannahG Every parent needs to read this. From my personal experience, my parents are examples of a lot of the stuff you listed above. No one's parents have a complete idea of what is going on, and by one word or one action you could make everything worse. In fact, my parents were the reason I self-harmed for the first time... But that was in the past. No kid should ever have to be slaves, be punching bags of their parents that make them miserable. Parents need to care about their kids. Isn't that what a mom or dad is?
