Disarray and General Stupidity
It has come to my attention as of late that the gothic community is in a bit of a state of disarray. I see people who claim to be “accepting” and “open-hearted” waging little ridiculous battles against others of the very same kind. Well, to that I say a hearty and sarcastic congratulations. By virtue of your pettiness and nonsense, you’ve managed to become just like everyone else in the world. Nice job on being “different.” You sure claim to be different, don’t you? Of course you do. All goths do. But I’m the type of person that examines behavior and actions far more than appearance. Shame on you if you’re involved in any kind of drama and otherwise divisive behavior. What on Earth are you thinking? If I sound angry, it’s because I am. This is exactly the type of behavior that gives everyone the right to not take you seriously.
I believe in the goth community, culture and movement. That’s why I’m mad. It’s personally embarrassing to me to see what’s going on right now. There are goth conventions, set up with the very best of intentions, that some of you won’t attend just because of some petty, childish grudges. Again, shame on you. This is a recipe for failure amongst the goth culture. Division is never the way to go in such instances.
If we continue to behave like silly little children, then we deserve the reputation we have amongst the mainstream culture. Many of you claim to be fighting stereotypes. If you’re serious about that, stop creating them, dummy. Unite. Stop fighting and backbiting. Stop gossiping. Can’t you realize that we’re all united under the same banner? No, you can’t. You’re too focused on being heard, whatever that means. Put down your swords and shields, grow up, embrace your brothers and sisters and move forward in unity. To summarize (in case you haven’t received my point yet), many of you are behaving like asses. Stop giving good goths a bad name. If you don’t like honesty, stop reading my stuff. There’s lots of tabloids out there that would suit you just fine.
