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.

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

Definite red flag; talk about it with him/her/them.  other signs, include: -being doted and adored one day, and the next being pushed away and ignored, -you're afraid of your partner -they obsess over and call/text you constantly -you may find you've lost your confidence -many ups and downs in the relationship, constant roller coaster -you aren't yourself. you change and adapt for them, drop hobbies if they're not into them, etc. -something tells you you cant trust them again, there are many resources out there if you need to talk. never be afraid to speak about it to someone- a family member, a teacher, a close friend, the police, a guidance counselor, etc.  I bolded that one part. The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there.

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?
