There's a difference between the Emo style and being emotionally unstable. Emo usually defines a style of clothing and style of music and nothing past that. Anything about outbursts or hurting oneself is emotional instability...nothing more, nothing less.

One can be emotionally unstable and do other damaging things without being emo (points to the hikikomori lifestyle).

There is no style involved. Since when is wearing black, makeup and dudes wearing women's hairstyles a separate style? I guess practically the entire human race from the eighteenth century until the early 20th century was emo.

He's right about the difference between emo and being emotional but ya, it's not a style. A style has some fashion sense to it. All black, guys wearing makeup, slick black hair you could probably light a lighthouse with, that looks bad any way you slice it.

And wear actual womens jeans.


Personally I think the Emo trend is starting to fade away, at least where I live. At my old high school, there were the "normal" skaters and the "emo" skaters. Ironically the emo skaters were the most popular, but they were all posers and had no talent. I was in the "normal" skaters group.

And most of the emos that I went to school with never cut themselves. I knew more girls who cut themselves and weren't emo, than emos who actually did cut themselves.

V.I.P.
*rolls eyes*

I was "emo" before it was cool, and I have to say that the way it all went disgusts me.

I despise how any song portraying emotions (Y'know, ALL songs) get labelled "emo". I hate how self-harm is now deemed "attention seeking" due to those idiots who did it to "fit in" (I know people that did that).

The old emo style appeals to me. The new stuff? I wanna stuff it in a trash can and set fire to it whilst listening to My Chemical Romance's "Kill All Your Friends".

to some it might seem strange or weird. i think its a way to express ones emotions and as Dhampy said..its regarded as normal these days for a lot of kids out there. there r plenty of things happening around us for the past several years that would've seemed very strange say 50 years ago. so i guess its a cycle.

It's always been normal. Teens have always been brooding and subject to mood swings and whatnot. It's a side effect of hormones. It's just recently that kids think it only happens to them and whatnot.

Apparently, we're a very self-centered generation.
