Goth Guide

A how-to guide to being Goth and what it is and isn't. Goth is a subculture that's been around for years. And in this guide shows info of where it originated, and about the types of Goths there are. Goth is more than just fashion, literature, music, movies, and art, it's also a mindset.
How does one become Goth? You can't "become" Goth. You may have been one all along and never knew you were. It's a mindset. If you love all things dark and "spooky", then there's a chance you are.
There are those who share a similar mindset with Goths who may not call themselves Goth. Being Goth is a choice, and it is a lifestyle to some.
Few may believe being a Goth is just a "phase", but there are adults who do live as Goths. But it can be a phase to some people. And I hope you enjoy this guide.


7. Worries


What are the worries?

There are alternative people who get put down by the norm, and this worries some. There is nothing wrong with looking different from everyone else, there are average people out there who accept the alternative. My family has dark, creepy things about them. They love horror films, and dark things, but they're not Goth.

It's easier to share with people who hold a similar interest in all things dark and spooky like you, either if they're Goth or not. Some people may not accept the dark look down the street, like some family members may not like you going out anywhere like that. Like if a grandparent was to show up, or you were going over to visit them, your parents might ask for you to lose the look. But little children may actually find you interesting. A different look they've never seen in normal society.

My grandparents, and everyone else in the family too, don't mind the alternative style. My nan (on my dad's side) is the only creepy grandparent I know. Everyone in my family I know never minds about what we're into or how we dress. But some kids in high school have been a little judgemental. But so far, no adult has said anything since I am one now. I worry about looking a little too much as one. I only do dress casual, but I can still give it that look.

I'm sure your concern is that someone's going to walk up and say something nasty and may start a fight because they dislike the alternative. Even some people have been beaten to death by haters, but they weren't even Goth, they just looked different. And people fear what's different. They act upon it like they're defending themselves. It's terrible. I've read that few Goths were killed for being Goths, (or were thought to be Goth). It is scary to think that some people would do such a thing just because you look different.
