Ok whoever thinks 'emo' is short for emotional... WRONG!
Emo is basically a derivative of the punk music. We're talking types of music people!
People that are classified as emo;
-wear tight pants
-wear tight shirts
-have black hair, possible with colorful hair, and a long fringe that hangs in the eyes
-dress either all in black, or black with bright colors
-cut their wrists
-listen to whiny music, or hardcore metal music
Considering I fit half this description, I have never been classified as emo. I think this description is people just expressing themselves. Black is a base color in art, used to create shades of meaning in a painting. Black is the night, mysterious and, face it, black makes curves look hot. Tight clothes, a lot of people find comfortable. Long hair in the eyes, that's the style today!
Emo is a stupid high school stereotype. I think the term that people should use (although long) is 'person that expresses themselves through their looks'
There's my 2 cents worth =)0
