    I was never scared of being goth, translation. Being myself, it makes me sick. Seeing pop culture fascism running through the non-intellectual crowds. Influencing music, media, movies, amongst other things. Something I’ve despised at an early age. I wear eyeliner, with my clothes pridefully. Anyone who doesn’t like it, fuck you . You simple minded fucks

  3. I wasn’t, but I worry about others.

    I was attacked and treated really badly for being goth in a town not far from my home in north wales and when the police were called, they honest to god asked me what I was wearing. It was close to 10 years ago but it’s still stuck with me. I still get bad comments and get kind of scared even though I don’t only wear black anymore but I guess it’s what happens when you choose to wear the styles you love.

  5. I was bullied growing up, physically and mentally, for many reasons but mainly due to being disabled. No matter what I wear people will be dicks so I never have been afraid to wear what I want because whether I do or don’t I still have to put up crap.

    I went to the medical tent at Bloodstock one year and the nurse that treated me was nasty about the way I looked and dressed???! What a shit place to choose to be a narrow minded bitch!!! I definitely didn’t expect it there.
    Don’t think it will ever change but I certainly won’t stop being myself!!

    All of us have been through the same shit in some way of another , I have been spat on , beat up to a point of my own mam didn’t recognise me and had the usual name calling even now at 30 I get ‘why don’t you grow out of it?” ” are you still into that shit?”….. but I think going though that hardship and coming out the other side makes us what we are… we are sub culture of understanding, love , acceptance and open minded togetherness (I don’t know if that’s a word or not lol) other don’t see that! I just wish I had an outlet like Facebook and the forums on hear when I was growing up so I knew I wasn’t alone… don’t ever feel like your alone our community is fucking bad ass and if you mess with one of us you mess with all of us!!!πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€

  10. Fuck all the close minded plebs. Stand strong brothers and sisters. m/

  11. 10 years ago I used to get this shit on a daily basis. I remember being told to ‘grow up’ and that I could be beautiful if I stopped ‘fucking up my face with piercing and dying my hair’ oh and ‘its just a phase’. No, this is me and I will wear what I want, when I want to! I am the way I am for ME no one else, so don’t like it? Dont fucking look.

  12. Thing is, as long as you be yourself and it doesnt hurt others, then there is no problem. Being a goth, metal head or any form of rock culture has never hurt anyone. But unfortunately people are just dicks

    People will always find a reason to be dicks. Sometimes people are dicks for no reason at all. There are countless murders where there is no motive. In this case because she was a goth, in
    another case because of race, in another because of sexuality etc. etc.

  14. I was bullied relentlessly and received some harsh threats in high school. All because I listened to stuff like Metallica, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, and Slayer. The only thing I can recommend is stick up for yourself and make friends with like minded people. Move to a new area if you can, and just don’t be a miserable scumfuck to people.

  15. My friend Ivan got abuse from a bunch of people at the King810 set for his nationality and length of hair he had to spend the rest of the festival at our campsite it got him that down, it’s a shame this has even spread there itself. I just hope he’s not to shook for it to go next year as he grew up listening to Nightwish.

    Unfortunately my experience is that this still goes on. My son is a little alternative looking – nothing particularly extreme – but the bullying has been pretty constant. Even my daughter has had it just for liking rock music. Narrow minded cretins are sadly still out there and haven’t got the message that this isn’t acceptable behaviour.

  17. If everyone had some Tolerance of Difference and a large dose of Good Manners then the world would be a much better place.

    It’s very disheartening to hear that members of the metal/punk/goth crowd still get attacked for dressing the way they do and listening to the music they want. Not all metal fans are evil Satan worshippers, but sadly, all the trendies and pop-worshipping muppets can’t see beyond their own materialistic obsessions.

  19. I know I am a big guy which would probably deter people from bullying me however I am a die-hard metal fan, I go to Whitby goth weekend and all those biscuits.

    Hatebreed – ” Sometimes standing for what you believe means standing alone.”

    Stay true to yourself. Believe in yourself and others will believe in you!!!
    Stay metal Stay Goth!!!

    I still clearly remember the day I see it on the news, made me sick to the core

  21. It was pretty hellish when I was younger. It seems better now, although abuse in the centre of Bolton is still a given.

    Be what you want to be. Be true to yourself and treat others as you’d like to be treated .. Ive been on this planet 61 years and that has always been my dictum. .. Ive always stuck to being an individual i dont need approval from others …. Why should you ? … If you cant deal with someone being different to the “norm” then i’d suggest that its you that has the problem not the recipient of your hate

    I regularly got called a goth,hippy,freak,weirdo,etc, I had stuff thrown at me including , eggs,fireworks,stones,glass bottles,etc . I’ve had sniggers and whispers etc, btw the eggs were thrown from a passing car when I was pregnant! One of the occasions of fireworks just missed my daughter in her pram! I think it’s ridiculous that people are judged on what they look like! I think more needs to be done from an early age in schools etc to teach kids that it’s ok to be different and that you shouldn’t mock others for doing so! My favourite music is metal but I listen to all sorts from country & western,soul,blues,50’s,60’s,70’s etc ! I’m also not a goth but I’ve been called one! πŸ˜‰I don’t let any of it get to me I know who and what I am and I’m proud that I’m the type of person who can accept anyone for who or what they are no matter what! As Jonathan said above I don’t need approval from others I’m just me! If you don’t like it then tough! Fuck off and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!🀘🏻
