Why do emo's cut them selves

Report as

Not all emos cut themselves.
Not all people who cut are emos.
And people who DO cut do it to feel something, because they can't feel anything.
Others do it to release pressure, to let that blood/pain come out.
Some do it to feel better, as pain brings a good feeling after it stops or during.

It's the only thing that gets their minds off the emotional pain they're going through. They think it's the only thing that can get them through what they're experiencing.

Not all emos cut themselves but the ones who do do it because they are depressed and need an outlet.

Emo does not mean you cut yourself. Emo is a style of music. Emo is also short for emotional. It's human nature to be emotional. Therefore, everyone is emo.
I'd do some research before you use words you obviously don't know the meaning of.

I have an open mind. I was just educating you on the subject. You can't categorize anybody as emo because we all are.

What you two are denying is that "emo" is a subculture just as stupid as the rest of them... There are thousands of kids who wear cheap makeup and write god aweful poems who call themselves emo...

Emo is not a subculture. Goth is one. Emo is not.

They don't know the meaning of the word. A subculture is a group of people who have the same believes and mind sets, correct? Emo is just a style of music. Where as in Goth has an actual subculture behind it. Emo does not. It wouldn't make sense. People who call themselves Emo need to look up the meaning of the word.

It's just a word. Emo has two meaning. 1) It's just am abbreviation for emotional. 2) It's a style of music. It's not really a trend, It's just a word most people don't take the time to actually learn the meaning of.

@Your Little Helper
You know nothing of the Goth subculture. And "emo" does not believe that. They aren't even a subculture.

Ever seen a goth or emo 80 year old?...
Report as
cutsandscars
Actually, yea I have. Not an 80 year old. But I've met a 22 year old Goth. And I've met a 33 year old Goth. I've been a Goth for 2 years, and I plan to stick with this as long as I can.
And wearing all black does not make you Goth.You can easily be a normal dressed person and be Goth. They just aren't called Goth by other people because you can't tell.
Report as
I've never seen such a person... And I'm pretty sure all that crap stops at 60... I'd want to tear my eyes out if a saw a 80 year old with black lipstick and a latex suit...

I just said that the style has nothing to do with the subculture. Most Goths just choose to dress like that. You don't have to dress like that to be Goth.

Anyway... This is going nowhere i don't feel like arguing anymore... Good night...

This question is offensive to any person who cuts or is emo. Emo is emotional, not necessarily cutting. And they cut for their own reasons. Is it right? No. But you shouldn't make such a generalization. People who cut, unless they are attention beggars, have depression and tend to not feel like they are worth much

Not asking a question, the question itself. It is insensitive and you need to respect that. I'm assuming you're like 10?
