    For those who don't know, I once made a thread jokenly about goths self-harming. The thread was never intended to be serious but unfortunately a select few found it offensive and sent me lots of negative rep saying big words such as 'stereotype'.

    Now someone has spent money researching goths and self-harming and have come to the same conclusion as me.

    Still doesn't take into account all the people not associated with the gothic sub culture that self harm. Still i'm not a goth so at least i'm not being stereotyped for a change!

    They just 'asked' the goths. They didn't ask for proof. I bet a lot of 'em just said 'yeah' because they thought it's what their image dictated they did.

    If only you had a blue avatar Spiral Architect, you wouldn't have been given any negative reputation for your stereotypes.
