Goths

Recommended Posts

I've been watching the goth-abuse that pops up around the forum, and I do find it funny. I would consider myself a goth ( mind you, I don't know if they always consider me one.....).

What I don't understand, is why a lot of writers seem to consider themselves above goths. See, I've experienced both scenes and found the following things in common:

 

1) the "scene" goth or writer

- you know the type, knows EVERYONE involved in the local scene. Is hyper-aware of their standing in the heirarchy, who its ok to talk to,

 

2) Clothing

- now this DOES NOT apply to every writer or goth. Any decent goth will be about the music, any decent writer will be about writing. BUT There are those who spend an daft amount of money on clothes, goths its corsets, writers its shoes or tops with graff on them. I've been to goth nightclubs and hip-hop nights, and in both instances everyone who entered was looked up and down by narky people at the bar.

 

3) Netgoths and Netwriters

- its that simple

 

4) "Old Skool"

- constant bickering about how shit was better back in the day, before all these new fake goths/writers arrived. How Marilyn Manson/Nelly is destroying everything good about the scene.

 

5) Sexuality

- (this does not apply to all writers or goths) Writers can be very homophobic, and its a mortal SIN to be definitely straight if you're a goth.

 

6) Drug of Choice

- with writers it appears to be weed, with goths its speed. Everyone drinks beer on both sides, but the goths insist on putting blackcurrant in theirs

 

 

 

Now I'm not bitching, just observing. Are there any other goths on the board who have noticed similarities?

 

 

Anyway, haterz:rolleyes: , I'm sure this post will attract you like an inexperienced writer, so take you best shot.

I'm sure I'm going to regret this but are you saying to be goth you have to be gay or at least bi? I'm not hating, I'm not homophobic, I am just curious about your statement.

i know a shitload about the gothic culture and a shitload of the graffiti culture. i dont like scenes. i dont like scenesters. for the most part, i insult scenesters and people who label themselves. i am not a "writer". i do graffiti sometimes. i havent done any graff in a while. i dont care. i have been called gothic, i have been called thug, i have been called raver, i have been called a lot. people who label themselves are fucking stupid. labels are opinions. to call yourself something is to give an opinion of yourself, but you distribute it freely where others can say you arent something. no one is ever right. everything is an opinion. i like to have fun. so i make fun. i may have even posted myself on here insulting myself. you never know. who cares who is who or what is what. its all opinion. everything in "life" is an opinion. who cares. have fun. weeeeeeeeeeeee.

nono, I don't mean you have to be gay or bi to be a goth, I should have clarified that I personally think that ALL you have to do be be a goth (or anything else) is believe you are - no one can tell you otherwise. I just mean in my experience with "scene" goths it has gone beyond "trendy" to be bi - it's now basically expected of you.

oooh, someone's panties are in a right knot, aren't they? I NEVER said these qualties described above were 100% of the time, I never said they were valid.

But they DO exist, and if you wanna belive otherwise, fine, but you are in denial. Not everyone fits a stereotype - BUT SOME TRY VERY HARD TO.

 

Relax the kacks man, I too think goth chicks are hot, but the very fact that you can say that means a good few of them must fit a stereotype, yes?

hahahaha! This is really gay. It's a shame that there are writers out there who are really interested in this shit. Good luck with your 'scene' dude. On a side note, the goth/writer analogy you made is fucking terrible.
