Why do gothics wear black?
They're called "goths" not "gothics." The Goth subculture has
all but died out now due to emo kids aka posers stealing their
I have to disagree with the person over me, since he's confusing
emo with gothics.
I am gothic so I know what it is.
First: We don't always wear black. I actually wear
yellow, red, blue at time.
Second: "color of sadness"(black) has nothing to do with
that. It's just that we tend to explore darker subjects than
most people. For exemple, I read things on death and vampirism.
Third: We don't want attention, people give us attention.
We get attention because we're different and unusual. That's all.
Fourth: Most of us are more intelligent, mature and
open-minded than most people. I did a IQ test and I got 130,
which is over the normal for a 13 years old girl like me. Also, I
never get into fights because I don't care about what other people
say about me. And even though I'm goth, I listen to Paramore,
Taylor Swift, Kiss, Twisted Sister, etc...It doesn't mean I'm goth
I ONLY listen to goth. I do listen to goth metal though, like
Lacuna Coil, Darkwell, Lunatica, Nightwish, Evanescence, Within
I hope I helped you ^.^
PS: I do drink blood, I'm still not a bad person ^.^ Not other
people's blood though, only mine, when I get hurt or something, I
drink the blood and love it. :) ',...,' lol
they wear black because then you cant tell how they feel.
The answer above is very correct. I'm a goth too. One of the
reasons why we wear black is began we like to asscociate the color
wheel with our emotions. Being Goth doesn't just mean the music. It
is also to do with our characteristics. We enjoy the darker side of
life more than others. I myself am a mixture of punk (a little) and
Emo and goth. I am VERY emotionally unstable. I like to wear
the color of my emotion which can usually be black but it changes
hope I helped a little more
