Kindergoths are anyone, usually younger than 16, who listen to music which isn't gothic, when asked don't really know much about gothic subculture, and are pretty much unaware of the post modern gothic movement or the romantic gothic movement as a whole. Yet a kindergoth will *always* claim to be "gothic" or "goth".
This is really the biggest difference betwene what gothic elitists may see as a kindergoth, and what the rest of us non-übergoths see as a kindergoth. A kindergoth to most people is simply someone who calls themselves gothic, but doesn't know anything about the subculture, in particular nothing about the music.
Dress in all black because they *gotta be goth*
Paint their fingernails black because they *gotta be goth*
Wear fake blood because they *gotta be goth*
Listen to SpoOoOoOkY music because they *gotta be goth*
Writes stupid, depressing poetry because they just *gotta gotta GOTTA be goth*
(Minor alternative use: name used by some immature 'mature' goths to deride young 'new goths'. Kindergoth is used by them as an equivalent to 'newbie' or 'plastic punk').
