    What do you mean by kid glove treatment? Sorry its confusing me.

    So by you are saying is that we are asking to be giving verbal abuse or am I misunderstand things (which I do sometimes).

    I would like it for children to be told more about respect. Some say they understand respect but if you look at most of the youths of today, they seem to lack this quality when treating others. When we all grow up and mature we realise that respect is needed or you just won't get that certain raise in pay or that promotion.

    Its just that you never see an Emo walk up to a chav and tell them to die. You won't see a goth telling a jock telling them to behave differently. So why must Emo's and Goths get more verbal abuse than anything else? I have only see Goth's and Emo's either ignore others or just to tell people who shout at them to get a brain but that's only when provoked.
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    hmph, I remember when wearing all black was considered Goth not Emo. . . that sucks. Anyways, first impressions always count. . . which totally and utterly sucks! Do what I do. . .keep people guessing. . . I'm originally Punk, but depends on how I feel, I'll change to Goth, to formal, and stuff. ^_^
    If they really had a desire to live, they would've been more aware of how easy it is to die.

    Sorry to butt in, but...

    Kid glove treatment means to treat something or someone with tact and caution. To handle someone with kid gloves means to deal with them delicately and sensitively, thereby avoid giving offense. I believe that's what it means.

    Both Hassun and Tsurara made good points. Not everyone has the time to get to know you personally, so youre appeareance, image, whave have you, is what will make them guess at "what" or "Who" you are.

    As for me, I...in a sense don't go into any of the "Labels" or that - Image wise (Well, to me that is). I get called "Goth" yes for wearing black. "Emo" or "Gay" for my weird intrest in wearing make-up. I also get called "Morphious" or "Neo" because well...I wear a trench coat, and I'm dressed overly nice I.E: Tuxedo Vest, Button Down shirt, Dress slacks, Tie, dress shoes. Really I don't know what that would give on people but yeah...x.X

    In truth, the way I see it, not much you can do to it, it's there, always has been, always will be.

    Ah, considering the descriptions given of those stereotypes there just may be another reason for that. Reasons that involve just as much stereotyping as what you are complaining of, namely people don't tend to insult others to their face if they think they might beat the crap out of them for it. That doesn't keep them from talking bad about them behind their back though and I know that happens. SO which is worse, saying it to their face or gossiping behind their back? IMO both are bad and no one "group" is innocent.

    That doesn't change the fact that people will judge you based on your appearance and their personal experiences. When it comes to being insulted by others tsurara is right "Idiots are idiots", don't let idiots bother you, however don't be unaware of the image you present either. If you know dressing a certain way will get a certain response from others don't be surprised when it happens. For example the girls who dress in nearly nothing all the time then are surprised when guys assume they are easy. If they don't want to be thought of as easy they need to stop advertising their wares so blatantly.

    To be honest with you, I usually DON'T care. But it depends on what was said. If someone walked up to me and straight out told me to go die, I'd probably have a fit. If it's just being corny or something that's easily ignored, it's no sweat off my back.

    There's a line in the sand drawn and more often than not, it's never crossed. But when a foot steps past that line, I've got a verbal bear trap waitin' for that person.

    Goodness yes! I'm so sick of people saying to me 'You're the first black girl I've ever met thats goth". Its sickening. Even when I say that I'm not they snicker and act like they don't believe me. Infuriating and idiotic!

    For the most part the people who ask are so shallow that they don't understand the concept of another person's feelings. All they care about is that they have a question and they want it answered. Or they want to change that person. Its very childish as well. Children look at things and take them for face value. And most the people who do that only see the outside they don't bother to search any deeper.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.

    I keep people on edge I never wear the same style two days in a row... technically I do it's my own, but I do have days when I'll wear elements from another style or even mix things up with like a punk t-shirt and some preppish pants. People don't really hate me for the way I dress either, because what I am really is a work of individual art. I don't play the silly copy cat game of the media.

    ... and join my rebellion against time.
