Emos don't dress in black all the time. Emo is the short form for Emotional. There is... the stereotype of Emo; which is involving in self-injury, which I am and there is the Emo style. Which includes, the type of music, or dressing up in Scene hair and everything else. It doesn't include cutting yourself.

Cutter. Emotional. Very emotional. Whatever. That's what I am. I don't really believe in the emo style. I just really believe in the self-harm kind of Emo.
