    You often hear the argument thrown about, that homosexuality cannot be a choice, as why would anyone wish to put themselves is such a position of stigmatisation and abuse.

    Can the argument not likewise be used for other minorities such as the goth subculture. Is it really reasonable to say that someone can genetically be a goth? That their DNA has lead them to wear the black clothes and white makeup that are the source of their marginalisation?

    Why do some people need to be so utterly thick? Ask that question also

    No doubt you call certain people "chavs" from the way they dress, no? Am I right or not?!?!?
    Yea i do but i dont give people trouble for it. i I think what chavs wear looks stupid but i wouldnt beat them up or give them grief for it. people should be able to wear whatever the hell they want

    No matter what you do in life there is always going to be someone that criticises you for it. Why should you change yourself in order to fit in with a particular group when you're always going to be subject to judgment regardless? Let goths be goths and leave them alone, it's none of your business... I doubt you'd appreciate people judging you for the way you look, we all have our insecurities.
