  • I 't like this. Just because somebody likes Anime, wears black, and listens to punk rick, DOES NOT CLASSIFY THEM AS EMO. Emo's are just people who are overly emotional and/or depressed. The above pictures of people that you showed are nothing but teens who are trying to look cool. Somebody doesn't just CHOOSE to be an emo... It's an emotional path. I know this first hand. Try being an ''emo'' for a day: it's not what it's all cracked up to be.
