    Attention

    the goth's were originally the visigoth's they were mercenaries that eventually took down rome
    rome thought they could just sit back relax and let the goth's fight for them
    before they knew it there were more goth's than roman's and rome fell easily
    Do you expect us to believe that?? lol Care to show proof of that??? Even if it was true, which i highly doubt, they were probably nothing like the goths of today.

    Edit:
    Ok i looked it up, and its true. Still i bet the only thing they have in common with what today is known as goths is the word goth itself.

    Goths were a East Germanic tribe, not a way of acting and dressing. Also goths werent origionally Visigoths. Visigoths is a branch of goths.

    lol
    I forgot to put that in my post that the visigoth's were the real goth's
    people just like to use the name but the gothic style is meant to scare people and ward them away

    O_O ...WHAT?! But... but... I TOLD YOU ABOUT THAT!!!

    >_< IT WAS WHEN I WAS RANTING ABOUT GREEK AND ROMAN HISTORY!!! REMEMBER?!!!

    ...

    ._. *sigh* ........ oh well... my rants just get too boring, I guess...

    <_< Well, I would like to give my thanks to Zackraa for sharing that bit of information...

    However, the term "goths" for TODAY's goths came from something different from the REAL GOTHS....

    ... don't ask me what, I don't remember anymore.

    The reason why people treat you differently is because people are afraid of what they don't understand; people do not understand why you like the gothic style which is characterized by the mysterious or the grotesque, However, it could also be because alot of people who are gothic their behavior is such that its puts people off. Also, its because of generational gaps, most older americans never had to see the commercialized goth such as Hot Topic and such. I don't really have a problem with the gothic style, hell I even like the gothic style, however, when your life becomes the gothic style I ask myself why are you acting this way, what is the reason for the clothes or the nails or the taste in music. What is it that you are trying to say, because it is one thing to appreciate the gothic style which alot of people do, but it is another to make this style your life. Also, most people especially in highschool become gothic because they are trying to prove a point or make a statement, their is a psychological need to be an individual.

    A goth today could be negative becuase alot of gothic bands have lyrics and their behavior is such that they are perceived as being negative. Also, the gothic style has become more commercialized with such stores as Hot Topic, which specialize in the grunge, punk, gothic lifestyle.

    I have never been goth but I do appreciate the gothic lifestyle, my two cents

    I know how you feel. I dress goth, look goth and listen to Jason Donovan and hell! People look at me in the street and scream everytime I walk past. Once I was minding my own business when a car nearly crashed b'coz the stupid driver kept staring at my make-up. I had to go to the police station and give a statement on something I did not know!!
