    Just normal people.

    We're people just the same as everyone else. We have jobs. We have families. We enjoy movies, music, and time spent with friends, just like everyone else. We just dress differently. Though I must laugh at anyone who thinks that goths are just kids going through a phase since most folks who would be considered goth (whether or not they actually use the label themselves) are generally well beyond being young enough to be considered kids.

    Ahaha... Baby bat.
    You do not know how much I hate that term. Either way at the end of the day, I know I'm not. :) I'm beginning to wonder whether you only said that because you feel defeated? I've been a member of the Gothic subculture for quite a few years now. I don't need people like you telling me that I'm a "baby bat" and that I'm wrong, when you don't even know me. A couple of comments ago, I thought you were an alright person...

    Ditto, kid. I thought so as well, even though you are incredibly condescending, until you busted out with that "I'm still right" immature crap. You can't even acknowledge truth that doesn't even come from me, but from other sources about the subculture. Defeated. Pfft, hardly. I've been a member of the subculture quite a few years longer than you if you want to get all gothier than thou about it. And for the record, I didn't even say that you were wrong. Just not entirely right. But again, think what you want. I truly don't care anymore.

    Well I'm sorry if I offended you, but I feel you are making assumptions. Sorry for causing you trouble, and please don't call me kid, since that is a baby goat. I'm kind of disappointed I had to argue with you now, because I just realised you are a Pagan like me, and that's really cool... Also, I was just informing you that I know what Goth is, and it's not "all gothier than thou" - I just said I have been a member for quite a few years, to tell you I know what I'm talking about. I never asked you how long you had been, and I certainly wasn't trying to compete with you. Either way, sorry for wasting some time of your life you'll never get back. =( Blessed be.

    No worries. It's the internet. People are going to argue about all kinds of things at some point. Even friends argue sometimes. Life goes on. Blessed be.

    I'm from Brisbane, and there's a pretty big goth scene here. So I figured you might be from here too.

    Aah, yes! I don't go into the city too often, but when I do, I frequently see alternative people, especially Goths - just like in Tasmania - there's a wide diversity of subcultures and fashions, something that I miss... In the suburb I live, everyone except me is uniform, and it's offputting. :( In saying that, there's an awesome shop in Fortitude Valley called Voodoo Lulu, but I'm certain you know that. ;)

    Yeah I know Voodoo Lulu, haven't been there in years though. Have you ever been to Faith? I'm not sure it even runs any more, I used to go to it every fortnight.

    No, I haven't been to Faith... :( When was the last time you went? If it's not within the last two and a half years, then it might've stopped running before I even moved here. :(

    Last time I went was about 2 years ago I think.

    I just googled and it seems it's on and off now, they have a Facebook page:
    https://www.facebook.com/page...

    There's a few different clubs that run in Brisbane and the Valley, The Step Inn hosts a lot of industrial/punk/EBM, etc.

    There's also Rosies that is mostly metal, the Dead of Winter Festival every year which has both under-age and over 18 events, the Zombie Walk, the Globe Theatre, and Rocking Horse often has flyers for local band gigs etc (plus they have a great collection of music).

    Yeah it can be pretty fun, only thing is that with such a large movement you come across a lot of elitists than can make it feel like a clique. And there's a lot of drugs in the scene too.

    Voltaire actually graced us with one of the origins of the word 'goth'...

    It just meant something that wasn't "Norm"... or "Norman" which became 'normal'..... *cough* Okay, so he could be talking out his inebriated arse. But still... good origin, no?

    Back when the world was Norman or Visigoth. Baby Bat had a point (though there are better ways to go about stressing that point...) BUT the origin seems to harken back to the idea of 'anything that wasn't Norman', aka Normal, which came from Norman because nearly everything WAS Norman.... Normal... whatevs. ;-)

    Oh she's right about where the word came from in the first place, but not entirely about how it came to be applied to us. Though that whole "Norman - Normal" bit is hilarious...until you say something like that around people who truly have no idea that the word "goth" ever existed before the 80s. Then it just makes you sad.

    When my mum was a teen they were swampies. Around the time of or just before Siouxsie Sioux, not sure. Any way goth wasn't used back then.

    *nod* I think 'goth' was always around, even hundreds of years ago (look at Poe, after all!) - it just didn't always have the term. It was the people who were fascinated with the dark as much (or more) than they were with the light. :-) That's all. The ones that had an affection for the morbid.

    Some of the funniest things in life are true. *nod*

    Sadly, this isn't completely true - "norm" came from latin 'norma' meaning a carpenter's rule, or square.

    Which works out kind of perfectly. The boringly normal folks in the 50s were called squares, after all. ^_^

    I know, those are the only Goths. What I meant was, you were stereotyping the modern-day Goth subculture. Not all Gothic individuals wear only black and some don't wear any black at all. They do not "pretend to worship Satan", none of them really do worship Satan anyways. They do not have to be "depressed all the time" and neither do emos.

    No, we aren't doing that to ourselves. The media is. ( remember the crap-tastic report done on the columbine massacre! And how most of it was wrong?)
    Talk to any goth put of high school. Few are depressed, I know a good deal of adult woman who love pink, abd most of the subculture I've noticed are Christian.

    Yes, but all you have just said is from a mainstream perspective - people who don't understand Goth. Who are you to say what's morbid and what's not? Anyway, the point is that we all know very well what the term 'Goth' means, and there's no need to change the subject to avoid admitting defeat. I know how other people see me, and quite frankly I don't care.
