There are many kinds of emo kids. there are Emo Kids who recognize themselves as emo kids. Although some are posers, some aren't. They just happen to realize that it would be easier for the other kids to label them like that. They feel for other people. They don't have to cut or do something totally rebellious to be an emo kid. They don't have to wear black or shop at hot topic.
All they have to do is be true to themselves. If the emo kid likes playing American Football, that doesn't mean he's a jock posing as an emo kid or the other way around.
Emo kids are people who are true to themselves. They call themselves what they want. They do what they want. They are polite, but honest. They are only very rude when the person they are talking to doesn't deserve respect. Emo kids tend to show what they feel to other people, whether that is love, hate, depression or sadness. that's why they're called EMO-tive KIDS.
NOT all emo kids have slashes on their wrists. NOT all emo kids have an ex they cry about and write poems about. NOT all emo kids have an lj, where they post sad stuff about. NOT all emo kids shop in hot topic. NOT all emo kids are gay. NOT all emo kids have floppy hair styles. NOT all emo kids are over dramatic about the smallest things in life. NOT all emo kids listen to just 'emo bands' or songs with meanings, although most love to.
What I'm trying to say is.. That an emo kid, is someone who is 'EMO' because that's who he is. Not because it is 'scene' or the hottest trend now. It is simply because that's who he is
Emo kid: I'm an emo kid.
Kid2: yeah. he cuts his wrists and sings to dashboard confessional. He's gay too.
Emo Kid: I don't. I'm just in touch with my inner feelings...
Kid2: see. he is gay. I mean what kind of a guy is 'in touch with his inner feelings'???
Emo Kid: -__-'
GIRL: i want to hug you
EMO KID: eek get her off of me!
GIRL: you get me all excited then you shoot me down!
EMO KID: ok you can hug me.......but only for a second or two..
1.The Baggie Emo- Wears baggie jeans (usually bootcut). Wears long T-shirts usually baught at Hot Topic. Wears colorful T-shirts on laundry day, but makes it a point to tell everyone how much they hate the shirt and why they are being forced to wear it. Usually tries to avoid these days by resorting to washing the black shirts themselves when one's mother refuses. Whieght varies. Hardly any 'Baggie Emos' are skinny. Wears ratty converse ( hight-top or low-top) or large boots. Lots of bracelets, a choker or long chain, multple peircings, the typical emo haircut, usually wears black nail polish. Carries messenger bag with pins, patches, and black marker graffiti. Just as many cutters as non-cutters. May have an eating disorder, but not extreme enough to show. Doesn't talk much. Chatters constanly around friends and laughs a lot only around friends. Appears depressed around outsiders and makes threats that they never attended to carry out to anyone who talks to them. A great friend when you get past the threats. Some maybe gay or bi, but just as many are straight. Usually female, but there are males. Listens to typical roack and metal. May sneak some Oldies or the like. Despises Preps and hates Rap, Hip-hop, Pop, etc. Can not STAND wiggas or 'gangstas.' May do drugs.
2.The Skinny Emo- Always extremely skinny. Not always due to eating disorder, but an eating disorder isn't unusual. Usually wears black band T-shirts that are as tight as possible. Usually has a white, thin long sleeved shirt underneath. Always wears old converse of varrying colors usually high-top. Multipe piercings. Usually plays an instrument.

3.The Wannabe Emo- Usually young. May see an older emo and can relate to them. Are positive they are Emo at heart, but not always true. Attempts the emo haircut, and wears too much emo jewelry and eyeliner. Wears too much black clothing. May slip up and forget to wear something. Draws on fake cuts or scratches themselves. Brags that they 'cut.' Boasts that they do drugs, but most do not actually do them. Most will pass this wannabe phase, but some will progress to full 'Emo-ness.'
