emo is just a shortened word for emotion
if you are an emotional person you could call yourself an emo.
but those emo-extremists who go around slitting their wrists and talking like the world hates them.
i wouldn't call them emos. id call them attention seekers.
they need to get a life.
dude1: so what ya do today?
dude2: i hate the world.. *cut cut cut*
dude1: dude, ur such an attention seeker...
dude2: im emo.
dude1: whatever u say. if ur so emo, go be emotional about saving the planet, freak.

emo is just a cruel label. im considered to be an emo but my mates (yes, emos can have friends) dont care. they accept me for who i am not what other people call me. one of my friends is blonde but we're awesome mates. anyways its better than being a stuck up robot that cant trust their so-called friends. and you can listen to screamo without people thinking your weird. its actually quite relaxing.
barbie- gosh your so emo
me- well at least im not a complete freak
barbie- matter of opinion. go slit your wrists
me- *turning up slipknot song* huh cant hear ya

People that think jumping off a cliff is a hobby.
Question: Would you rather kill yourself or be an emo? If you said emo, then you'll want to kill yourself. If you said kill yourself, then you already ARE one.

OK Now every Chav,Townie etc thinks emo is a person who cries all the time then cuts themselves and lives in self pity well sorry to tell you 89% of the teenage population(this is just a rough estimate it is probably higher) you are wrong!Emo's do not cut themselves a few do but then again so do chavs and goths and skaters and grebs and townies now just because emo's listen to heavier music than r & b(puke) or rap(even worse) etc it doesn't mean they cut themselves and wallow in self pity no the thing most people have failed to realize is that emo is just a music genre and fashion style.

The emo bands that are still going include: Funeral for a friend, Clash of the sirens and the haunts (there are a lot more) also i recommed going to see all of those bands they are all awesome I saw them in May.

So I leave you with this emo is a subculture of the more widely known goth it is only a fashion statement and genre of music.
chav: Go cut yourself you goddamn Emo go slit your wrists
*emo is thinking* All these chavs are telling me to slit my wrists I would say something but theres too many

Emo is often confused with Emotional Sensitivity, and is more often linked to boys then girls, because of the so very 'unmanly' manner in which an emo boy acts.
Male emotional senstivity is a guy who does not feel the urge to be a macho pea-brained asshole whos only emotion is arrogance and violent anger. A sensitive male realizes that guys can cry, and say the word 'beautiful'. They can also like flowers and admit that there are other guys out there that are hot, and do lots of other 'gay' things while completely content with their heterosexuality.
(an interesting thing about this is that it is quite ok for girls to sit on each other's lap and hug and go to the washroom together etc etc and not be considered homosexual, but if a guy strikes up a random conversation on the bus with another guy, he's a faggot.)

This being said, an EMO (short for emotional) is someone (guy or girl) who has taken the dark, evil, brooding, shadowy and mysterious genre that goes by the name of goth, and mutilated it into a subculture of whiney sniveling teenagers. An emo is someone who dresses very similar to a goth, wearing makeup and black clothes, but is easily defined often by the lopsided swooping haircut that causes them to be half blind all the time.
A goth makes you uncomfortable standing next to them on a long bus ride, and if done right are dark and creepy and cool looking. Take the band Type O Negative, for example.

Emos most of the time have a look of eternal sorrow pasted on their face, and spend their time whining because life is so tragically devestating and heartwrenching. They cry and snivel and cut themselves to gain attention, as opposed to the noble masochistic origin of the hobby. When you see an emo you will want to puke because of how synthetically pretty and childish they look, and then drop kick them.

Emos have ruined the very normal practice that is talking about emotionally hard times to someone close.

"How are you today?"
'Well, to be honest, I feel really lonely. I sit at home more than I'd like and don't really have
(m)any friends. *shrugs apathetically*'
"zOMG... Don't be so emo..."
'...You asked how I was. I am telling you honestly how I am feeling.'
"EMO. Cry me a river... *emo tear*"

This video will familiarize you instantly to what an emo is, if you are still confused in any way: (again, remove any spaces)

Emo is something that Green Day has got nothing to do with....
F U C K THOSE WHO WROTE THAT GREEN DAY IS EMO
examples:
4) People who listen to the following: Fall-Out-Boy, My Chemical Romance, Good Charlotte, Greenday
by Meagan Eden Rogers
me: F U C K it is Green Day, not Greenday
...... ..... ...... ....... ......
Just because you dress like Green Day, doesn't mean you're emo! You guys frustrate me so much! AH!!!
by xoxo_stained_your_wrist
me: F U C K Green Day don't wear any emo clothes, you dumbass!!!
........ .......... ........ ........... ........
Green Day is the worst Punk/Emo band ever
by COOJ
........ ........ ............ ................ .........
Some One that slits their wrists or any part of the body, listens to crappy emo music like Simple Plan, GreenDay and The Used.
by CAMBO
......... .............. ............. ............ ......
ME: why the f u c k do you think that Green Day is emo? Do they dress like emos? NO!!!!!

Do they have emo lyrics? Well if you think that "when masturbation's lost its fun, you're fu c kin g lazy" is emo, then their lyrics are soooo emo =)))

Or this one is a "great" example of emo lyrics, it's from the song called "burnout"
" I THREW MY EMOTIONS IN THE GRAVE - HELL WHO NEEDS THEM ANYWAY "
..... ............. ............. .............. .........
F U C K, GREEN DAY IS NOT EMO!!! THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT EMO SHIT!!!
correctly: Green Day is the greatest rock band in the world right now.
incorrectly: Green Day is great emo band.
