But yea it really bugs me that people are always calling my friends and people like them degrading names and making them feel like sh*t. They're just being who they want to be and expressing themselves and exchanging ideas.
So what do you think of people who would get labeled as being scene or emo? And if you despise them, please enlighten me as to why, because people I know like that are some of the best I've seen.

Aw, now that's just absolutely rude to call people names, period.
I don't enjoy the style (except the shaggy, black hair look on guys look; I dig that), but I was friends in college with punks, goths, and emos. I went through the phase being a wannabe. I personally don't like the personification the people show. What I have observed is the philosophy about how the world is filled with gloom and doom, or that they have such a pessimistic view on life because of past hurts and failures. Depression is really what seems to come off as when it comes to the style. I don't do darkness and coffins and all that mess. I am a sensitive person as it is and those that I've hung out with in the past just felt emotionally unstable (bipolar, control issues, borderline,) except one guy. I can only take differentness for so long. I felt crazy when I wasn't around them acting out like a dang fool; I'm much calmer and more collected since I haven't hung around them in years. I just don't want to deal with the drama or the philosophy goths and emos personify (in my past.)
But as people, I'm not going to be mean and nasty to them.
