Differince between you and me

October 15, 2009
Gothic, Punk, Vampire, Sadist, Anarchist.
These are all words that we hear everyday. People that are most harshly discriminated against. But these are beautiful people. I am a "goth". I have straight A's in school, I go to church at least 3 times a week. I have a wonderful engagement. And I have no deep seeded hate for anyone. This is me just tyring to tell you that the next time yo;u see one of these beautiful creatures that you are so very afraid of, before you say anything, just remember we are poeple just like you. We are here waiting with open arms ready to love and be loved.

Thank you so much for writing this, it reminds me that not all people are bad. People always judge me on my looks, and its hard not to give up faith in humanity when people scoff at you. I love this piece:)

People shouldn't be judged because of their style. The style a person has doesn't explain how they are in the inside. Some people have their own taste it may not be what others like, but it's not up to others. Everyone should be thereselve, and don't worry what others think.

i know what you mean, people always call be gothic emo chick just because i weat black, clothes dont make up someones personality and the sooner you figure that out the better off you'll be. peoplle are discriminated against for anyything, their music, clothes, hair, grades, wanting to be alone, its not fair, people like you should write more about this kind of thing and get back the peoples rghts to be theirselves. being different is a good thing, always has been :)

THANK YOU!!! Finally someone can put it out there that we are all human beings and it all hurts just the same, whether I know you or not, your words are all the same mess and hardship I must face. Thank you for being able to write this so beautifully yet simply in a way people can understand. I think you would like the song Hero (Red Pill Mix) by Superchic[k]. :)

I'm not goth, but I used to be emo. And I know that feeling. The stares black lipstick gets and the laughs fingerless gloves gets. I know.

That's a wonderful insight. Many people place stereotypes upon Gothic people. But this is great to know. Keep writing!
