Against Normal Culture

They are against the normal culture and music, becoming depressed over time because of this and end up creating a stereotype, they don’t look at others walking on the street, they never smile, considering they are more sensitive than other guys.


Boys Wear Tight Clothes and Makeup

The boys dress undersized, many of them wear girl pants, girls have shorter hair than normal and both sexes wear piercings on the face, make-up.


This fashion statement often includes skinny jeans, sometimes borrowed from female counterparts, to accentuate their slim figures. It's common to see them experimenting with eyeliner, especially to achieve the signature "smoky eye" look. The use of makeup transcends gender norms, emphasizing the movement's focus on emotional expression and individualism. Accessorizing with studded belts, black nail polish, and band merchandise also complements this unique style. The look isn't just about appearance; it's a rebellion against traditional gender expectations and a form of personal liberation.


Open Minded

They tend to be open minded when sex is involved, usually they suffer of severe narcissism.


Emos often approach sexuality with a willingness to explore and a rejection of traditional labels. This open-mindedness is reflective of their broader view on life, valuing emotional expression and personal authenticity above societal norms. However, it's crucial to recognize that this does not equate to promiscuity or a lack of moral compass. Rather, it signifies their desire to connect deeply with others, transcending superficial boundaries and embracing vulnerability within their relationships. This trait, while potentially positive, can sometimes be rooted in a self-centered view that prioritizes their emotional needs.



These kids are highly emotional, and this is the reason for their name…they cry and listen to their music, suffering because they are not understood by the majority of people, exaggerating in the idea that they suffering is somehow original, different from the rest.


These heartfelt youths often wear their hearts on their sleeves, with a tenderness that sees the world through a lens of deep sentimentality. It's not uncommon for them to pour their feeling into diaries or blogs, sharing poetic musings that echo their inner turmoil and desires. These expressions might be viewed as overly dramatic, but to them, it's a necessary outlet for their intense emotions. Their sensitivity can be a double-edged sword, drawing them closer to like-minded peers while also setting them apart from those who might not understand the depth of their feelings.


Imperfections in Life

These young boys and girls find imperfections in their life in every aspect of it and blame themselves for their drama, some of them think of suicide or take anti-depressive medicine.

The original EMO is not a suicidal guy, and does not wear a special haircut or weird clothes and they have compassion and love, this was the initial movement, what we see today is something fake, things have changed since this cult appeared and was accustomed with the world in which we live at present time. Will this culture perpetuate? We will never know for sure…

NO. JUST NO. I´ve got plenty of emo-friends. No, they are NOT more sensitive than others, most of them are not depressed and most of them do not have piercings. You are describing and publishing a very sad stereotype that makes emo even more hated T~T I´m sorry if this upsets you but I have to stand up for the alternative kinds of people I hang out. T~T

Hey these stereotypes are so not cool. Even I can recognize how insulting this is and heck I'm not even Emo. Just stop.
