I used to be too

Did you refer to yourself as emo at the time? Or did you do the classic, "I don't see myself as anything, I just like these clothes and/or music"?

Oh good question, I used to go on people's profiles and find bands that way as I didn't know many myself at the beginning of my transition anyway. And then I'd listen to some songs and stick to a few, such as Dashboard Confessional, Within Temptation, My Evanescence, H.I.M. (my absolute favourite)... I guess these wouldn't be classified as too emo, more like rock or goth not sure anymore haha.

Why did you stop?
I actually had two phases of it, the second one stopped because it transitioned into indie and before I knew it I was just wearing jeans and hoodies like everyone else (including my mother). It happened before I knew it kind of thing... also with age I became busier with education and forgot about paying so much attention to my appearance.

Oh yeah haha, I knew I was emo but I did enjoy playing the clueless victim to claim authenticity. I used to get called a poser a lot haha those were the days!

I'm sure you're a really nice person but just think how your words could affect other people before you blurt out stuff like that. It's a very sensitive topic (self harming) and it's not cool to make comments about it like that.
thanks? lol and ok, I will, at the rest of your sentence. I don't see where it was offensive and I will never know if something is offensive or not until I say it?

Yeah, unfortunately I got bullied too for it. Except for when I moved countries, here in the UK it was a lot more accepted. I'm guessing in a developing country where I came from it was more of a shock and hence a proportionate reaction to it. A lot of people thought I was a Satanist, Romania being a very religious country you see. One of the first things they questioned.

Would you have really said that to a group of people in person/ in a class discussion if you were talking about emos?

why loveD? I still like them and listen to so much of their music, but this is why I don't like emos. If you like something, legitimately, and emos happen to claim this thing for their image, then you're considered dark or emo or a poser. It's annoying Like being around gangbangers or chavs and you can't wear certain colours and brands anymore

Michael: Because she's Goth, and some ignorant people don't know the difference!
Worker: What is the difference?
Pete: Oh my God! They're totally different!
Worker: Okay, different how?
Pete: They're..ugh.. you know, one is good and -and emos are horrible! [flips hair] You're, you know... They're posers!
Firkle: Emos suck my Goth balls.
Michael: Alright alright, think of it this way: a goth believes that deep down the world is totally ****ed up. But an emo thinks that deep down, they are totally ****ed up.
Worker: That's not much of a difference.
Pete: That's a huge ****ing difference!
Michael: Okay okay, look, emos are more prone to suicide.
Pete: This ****in' *****, man.
Michael:But goths are more prone to be depressed that so many people commit suicide
Pete:Goth's darkness is nihilistic whereas Emo's is cynical.
Michael:Wait, I thought we were cynical. ...What what whatever, it doesn't matter.
Pete: No, see, you're nihilistic.
Michael: Oh yeah, you're right.
