i am just trying to see what different people did/do to be emo.
Nothing makes you emo - it's impossible to be a dead sub genre of hardcore punk.
It depends on what makes you Goth, if you contribute to the Gothic lifestyle, wear clothes and dress in the style (and also know your knowledge on the subculture otherwise you'd be a poseur. Stereotypes do not make you anymore than a stereotype.
haha first one awesome lol
