Today, I introduced my new boyfriend to my parents. Everyone knows he's into the emo scene, but this didn't stop my dad from slowly looking him up and down, then saying, completely deadpan, "You never told us you were a lesbian, honey." FML

OP's dad is my hero. Guys were never meant to wear skinny jeans and makeup. It's unnatural and unpleasant. Throw on a pair of Tripps and call it a day. They're actually comfortable and leave you with you ability to reproduce intact...

43 pretty much said what I was going to say. :)


Right...but to the objective eye, or someone with an eye of fashion, it is all a bad look for guys and they should just not do it. Not saying anything about the way they are, just the way they choose to present themselves, which is pretty lame.

Nobody put emo with gay except for you guys who are "defending" it. The dad asked the daughter if she was a lesbian. That would imply that the emo boyfriend is a girl, not gay. If he had said "Honey, you never told us your bf is gay." then he'd be calling the emo boy gay.

To all the people saying that you would feel bad if you were being made fun of for the way they dress. That is the point. If people laughed at the way I dressed everywhere I went, id stop dressing that way!

ITT: people presenting their opinions as fact.

Other people disagree. Move on.
For reference, "I think that, because this person dresses this way, they are a pussy" is shoddy logic, at best.
So is "I like/dislike this, so other people who differ are wrong".

TL/DR: Get over yourselves. Just because YOU agree with you doesn't mean everyone else should.


If you dress to associate yourself with a certain culture, you're signing up to be stereotyped. Negatively and positively. If you see someone wearing a swastica and have a shaved head, are you "not going to judge"?


You seem to have a problem differentiating between emo and goth and group them into the same thing. Let me break it down for you. Goth=original. Emo=shitty rip-off of goth, metal, punk, and hipster.

Honestly, I have nothing against Emo/goth people. Most of them are just rebellious teenagers who are going through a phase. I do think you look ridiculous if you dress like that, but its your decision not mine so I will leave you alone either way.


actually, I'm not sure about tht, the vibe I get from emo scene is a kid who is the perfect balance between gay n goth oh and sometimes 1/3 stripper? xD

idk but it maybe cute what they wear, but being emo or scene is not the best label to be under life or personality wise D:
just an opinion :I

Wow, I did say "right" instead of "write", my bad. Well I got more drinking to do and I'm sure you have to get back to editing FML comments. Good day.

How are you that wrong? Metalheads would be listening to Slayer or Behemoth. Shadows Fall and Atreyu fit the metalcore label. Slipknot is nu-metal, and Trivium just sucks.

None of those bands are emo. Emo people listen to bands like Tokio Hotel and stuff.

Then you've got scene kids listening to really fucking bad stuff like BrokeNCYDE and Blood on the Dance Floor. (That's not all scene kids though. Some listen to bands like Bring Me the Horizon or Job for a Cowboy, which aren't terrible.)

75 is wrong, 91 is right. And, the only reason I put ____core is because they listen to a wide variety of music in the "Core" category. Some like post-hardcore and metalcore, crunkcore and nintendocore (lol), and the ones that like the brutal stuff like deathcore or grindcore. And then you have the ones that like Tokio Hotel, Black Veil Brides and BrokeNCYDE. Scenes usually follow the scene looking bands, while emos.. Well, they just enjoy their music, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Im an emo kid, nonconforming as can be, youd be nonconforming too if you looked just like me. Ive got paint on my nails and make up on my face, im almost emo enough to start shaveing my legs!!

  Llama_Face89  |  33

186- Well their music is kinda emo. Dont get me wrong, i love Linkin Park as well (Hybrid Thoery and Meteora, not big on the others) but moste of their songs are pretty emo. Don't have to be an emo kid to listen to that type of music. Except Green Day. Fuck Green Day.

@91: I'm only commenting on this because you mentioneed one of my favorite bands, Blood On The Dance Floor.

It's an amazing band and I appreciate them for their music. Most of my friends do not like them. I refuse to label myself because I'm not Emo or Goth or anything like that, I'm just... me.

Over a year late to this, but emo can be pretty cool, especially the fourth wave stuff like Old Gray, Dads, and The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die. Linkin Park is nowhere close to being remotely emo. Emo can be slow and melodic or closer to hardcore but usually it's pretty good. and most emo kids don't cut themselves.

And to the person above me, BOTDF is absolute crap and the singer is a horrible person and a pedophile. Last year at warped I had to endure their set so I could see Taking Back Sunday immediately after and most of the crowd booed when they came on. Their music was trash.
