Fyl OP. Prepare for the pseudo-alienation, pseudo-individuality and faux emotion. I was(note 'was') friends with someone who strayed down this path. Faking bisexuality to attract girls, creating a false individuality to present, trying to act deep and emotional, trying to seem like a 'profound, introverted thinker'(utterly insulting to an introverted peron who has an interest for philosophy and theorizing) when in actuality, he was extraverted, insecure, but somewhat cunning and manipulative. (Excuse the run-on sentence.) He was lucky to be around many ignorant and/or unobservant people, as it allowed his crap to flourish. Now I'm not saying this should represent all 'emos' by any means, I'm just giving one example from experience. Hopefully your daughter can find an actual sense of identity or state of self-awareness.
well, what caused this?
What caused this? Puberty, I guess. You know, the urge to be different than everybody else, to be unique, to shock your parents, to look cool, to impress your other emo-friends...that kind of stuff. Most emo's will grow out of it, so don't worry, OP, it's probably just a phase. Maybe you should also learn to accept her the way she is instead of complaining on FML. My parents couldn't deal with my black eyes and black clothes for a long time. Friends of them told them it was going to end bad with me because of that. Those teenage years were so fun fun fun...they didn't trust me and controlled my laptop and gsm, I didn't trust them, they scold at me, fights every day, I hated them... Fun fun fun. But now I'm almost grown-up, still a goth (but one with a fabulous self-esteem) and they accept and love me the way I am. But I'm still sad and mad at them for those lost and fucked-up years.
138 is right emos are faggots with self esteem problems and shitty taste in music and goths are people who are different and try to be unique and never do stuff because it's popular also they generally have way better taste in art and music with a genuine appreciation for them. I know both crowds and in my book the goths win everytime
