I Hate the Emo Persuasion by Snoofalah I Hate the Emo Persuasion by Snoofalah
I swear to God, you are everywhere, emo kid. You are on the TV, you are in the newspaper, you are trying to friend request me in several places just to make it look like you have more friends, and you are always at the mall. I don't believe this; everywhere I go, there is an emo. Why?

I've noticed, emo kid, that you have thousands of pictures of yourself where you are holding a camera away from your face by about an arm's length, and you are pretending the camera isn't there by looking away from it and not smiling. Not only that, but you plea for me to comment all of them. You do this over and over again for reasons beyond my knowing why, and this not only bothers me, but about a million different people around the US, maybe even overseas. We cannot stand this, emo kid.

Your influence spreads like a zombie virus, emo kid. More and more kids are claiming to be depressed pudges of slime everyday, and they all use your stupid whiny-tone voice that makes it seem like they have just woken up. I imagine that every bright and sunny morning you arise to, you say to yourself, "Today's going to be gay." Might I also add that almost every sentence you make has to do with your pain.

WHAT PAIN? Your parents house you, feed you, raise you, carry your awful burden, and deal with every piece of tripe you have to offer at the dinner table. You also tell them you hate them, that you are sorry that you were born and all that nonsense. Guess what? We're sorry you were born too. We're sorry that we have to deal with your nuisance and scum that you can't possibly positively give to society. You make the human race look terrible, and you aren't helping your image by using the terms "gay, fag, sucks, etc."

You listen to emo and screamo, emo kid. This obnoxious crying and moping on a microphone onstage is a pathetic contribution to other genres of music. You and your brethren cloud around our cities to watch these do-nothing bands play for an hour at specific locations which makes the rest of our society late for important meetings and services. You pretend like the world is a bad place and that nothing matters, but apparently concerts matter, and so does taking pictures of your ugly mug and putting them on Myspace, where you further plea for me to comment them.

Stop cutting yourself, emo kid. No one has to clean up your blood but yourself. Your parents shouldn't have to deal with that, nor you. So cheer up or chop yourself up in a field. We're sick of you, emo kid, and we hope that everything wrong that can happen happens to you.

While the artist comment did make me laugh a lot, I think the part where asking them to kill themselves is a bit harsh. Only a bit though.

When I tell emos they scare me, they take it as a compliment. But what they fail to realize, is that they only scare me, because, they show me how everyone has potential to be that ridiculously pathedic.

I've found that overtime people who take insults as compliments are often the ones who mock themselves more frequently. People are unhealthily, ridiculously stupid, and it shows very often in these emotional types.

I'm fine with "emotonal" but emotional and "emo" are far from being the same thing. I mean, am I actually supposed to believe that a manic depressive is actually going to dye ther hair black and blue, wear tons of makeup and hang out at the mall? They're just whiners who want attention, so they take the insults. I don't feel sorry for them in the least, most of them are completely content with their lives and have no real reason to go on and on (and on) about their "problems" all the time. Then you for making this! All around dA, I 've been seeing "Emo Pride" stamps.

OK, heres an idea :do some resurch (forgive my bad spelling.) this is not an attact, and not to be taken in a rude tone. Emo actually means emotonal or have one emotion one of the time. Not all of us are depressed, cut ourselve, whine about everything, wear black ALL THE TIME or hold a camera at arms length to take pics of us(though im guilty of that one lol).

putting us all in one boat is like saying all whites are racists

I made a few journals like this. Live happy or die.

Emos will make the choice to live well, or kill themselves, and I dont care if they are too much of a coward to man up and live.

They remain a constant reminder to us that there's really no reason to sulk about all the time and complain about tiny things. If it's okay for them to do that, at least keep the rest of us out of it.

I'm gonna throw in my opinions from a 13 year old girl that spent 7th grade trying to be 'deep' (me)

It's not like emos don't suffer; everyone suffers. But making it a big deal is not nice OR mature, which emo people aren't able to see.

I'm not in high school yet but in Middle school there are a handful of boys and girls that wear the clothing, listen to the music, and cut themselves. A boy brought a knife to school and cut in the bathroom, and was caught, much to his DELIGHT. I DID wear the clothing; cut myself and all that shit. All for two reasons; I wanted to stick out and I wanted to be all 'complicated.'

If you truly want to be seen as someone that has strong emotions, do it modestly. It would avoid offending your local Cancer patients and it would create wonderfully convincing effects. If you want to be deep and complicated, don't put x's in your username or cat scratch your wrists. If you use clothing, over-bloody poem lyrics, and songs to try to be deep and in pain, it won't reach others.
I like the style. But I hate emos. You can wear whatever you want, but the attitude that comes with it needs to stop. And also, style needs a boundary. Go over the top, no one's going to take you seriously. Wear it everyday to school, you'll be looked down on. Emo and emotional is not the same thing. And clothing does not determine either, but the attitude comes with it if you aren't decent.

I did MANY self-inflicting damage to myself that I'm sure plenty of emo people here would be jelous of, and later, when I grew out of it, an emo guy started to whine again;
"Last night I lost it. I took a knife and tried to kill myself."
"Well, who hasn't?"
Seriously; WHO HASN'T? It's not deep anymore; so don't waste time trying to make it so.

I'm pretty sure this emo thing will fade; it's not the first of it's kind, just the first to be this immodest.

I'm sure a lot of 'emo haters' doesn't like emos for the same reason I don't; they .. are .. blind.

They are blind to the fact that what they say is rather .. bland. Or fake. Or flavorless. Kinda like really gross sugar-free lemonade. And it's only this way because they are kinda BOASTING about it too much in their clothing, make-up, poems, and way of talk. You don't have to wear emo clothing to be emo; just talk immodestly about pain, suffering, insanity, and self-damage and insult people who really do go through these tough times.
If you really were in pain, you probably wouldn't imitate it. Holocaust survivors don't listen My Chemical Romance.
Emo is not 'who you are'. It's just a trend that people find attractive.

To be perfectly honest, I think emos need help. Even if they are just acting, that fact they they go that far is a bit worrying, to say the least.

Oh my gosh.

If it was possible, I would fave this comment of your many times over. And then print it out and force several of my friends to read it.

I am just...I've never been able to articulate my antagonism towards emos, and this summarizes all my feelings perfectly.

Favorite quote in that whole thing.

My friend, you share an excellent point. It isn't the clothes or the things that you wear that makes you what you are, it is the emotion and the character. If someone IS truly a fool, they will pretend that they are something they're not. Self-infliction is a very sad thing, and I am sorry that you felt like you did. It is only when people gloat about the things that they have done or will do that brings up the anger in other people's perspectives. Personally, I couldn't give a rat's anus if a person says they were so close to killing themselves, because it would have been more traumatizing if they actually went through with it. Well, maybe not traumatizing to me; I hate the buggers.

You have a fantastic ability to speak your mind and use proper grammar and definition. You can't possibly be 13? You've got college-ready material in your words!

Thanks for stepping up and showing that you've overcome your past. You are a gladiator.

I find it highly irritating too... but one point I do want to make is that I think we should feel sorry for the emos, not hate them.
But firstly, I want to say that the way I see it there are 2 types of emo, the actual depressed suicidal person, and the poser. Both of these need help, but for different reasons.
The 1st type needs help for obvious reasons, but the 2nd type is obviously so craving for attention and willing to go so far to 'fit in' that it becomes a disorder in itself.

My God, there are emo kids EVERYWHERE in my school.
Sadly, they got to my sister.

She takes pictures of herself, just as you described, turns them grayscale, and puts them on her myspace. It's discusting.

Something else I noticed. Emos seem to have a certain sense of undeserved pride. As if they're to busy being dramatic little snots to talk to you.

The text was genious-like! So damn right... This emo thing is now a fashion than a feeling... From what I know, cuz I researched because I don't want to comment without really knowing about what I'm debating, this emo-current started somewhere in 80'... but it suppossed to listen to a specific kind of music and have a pretty sad/dark/gloomy background not a cheerfully, happy family with all it's members kissing your a$$ just because they're afraid you might cut yourself... Plus nowadays, those bugs listen to 50Cent and other stuff that just shouldn't suit them! And damn it, they're like locusts! They're every where you go!
Sorry, I'm pretty pissed off, cuz today at school I got in a bit of an argue with an "emo-kid" about what this really means, cuz , as somebody said before, they're more like w#ores lingering for attention and I just couldn't stand it and I said if you're not slicing your wrists, than I'll show you some game... ooops, broke his nose :))... Damn it, cuz i ended up at the principle's office...
They're like locusts spread everywhere and grass-hoppers cuz they're in Romania too... I really wish Vlad Tepes (some sadistic waywode, that in some books matches dracula) was alive, he could help them bleed to death!
Sorry for my not-so-good english...
Have a nice day! :D
