Anyway they are just clothing styles that doesn't really matters.

Who cares. We don't need to label people. The only reason we're calling Ruby goth is because she's gothred.

According to the steryotypes:

Emo's are dark because they really feel depressed (or like to convince the world of that). They're sad, occasionally suicidal, ect.
Goth's see the beauty in things like death, sorrow, and The Path. The like things that are macabre, but they aren't neccessarily sad or prone to self harm.

Just so you can make an educated decision when labeling someone x)

It's funny. These styles seem to be a re-hash of something that happened in the 80s. But back then, we didn't have names/labels for them. At least not here in Belgium. None that I was aware of. Though that didn't reduce our clique-attitude. People with the same tastes in clothing and music definitely stuck together more. Even if we didn't know what to call it.

It's still true. People hang out with people that have similar interests and appearances. Except that (at least I feel) there are only two major groups. Popular and unpopular. After that it's not really split up any more. Take my school for example. I dress in thrift store close (Goodwill, anyone?) and I'm treated like crap by those who dress in -shivers- brand names (American Eagle, Aeropostale, Old Navy, etc.).

I think we at our school have an odd attitude to stereotyping.
Once you get older, and more mature hopefully, you start to band closer to people you never thought you would because they don't judge you like they did when they were younger.

Despite wearing uniform before Sixth Form (college years) at our school, wearing something as simple as a badge could make the 'popular' kids stereotype you. I recall an incident where a few friends and I were stopped by some of the lower years and asked if we were "goth", "emo" or "satanists" because of my friend's hair colour.


Anyway. Totally off-topic.

ONE MORE RED TO GO! HUZZAH!

England had the mods and the rockers in the '60s...apparently that got really nasty, with violence and everything. But I don't know much about it.

I remember my dad telling me about when he was a punk in the '70s. XD Long hair and a safety pin in his ear.

When I first saw Ruby.. Ah, I just watched her leg : D I have the same brace in my leg. I've watched Ruby's leg ever since the first video came. I was like: " Shocked ... is that what I think it is!?"


Here's what mine looks like. I used to have a longer one, like Ruby, but this lighter is easier to wear..
..can't believe I'm showing a picture of me with my pyjama pants..

About the thing that she says she's in pain when you ask about the brace.. Well, yes. It hurts. I got the brace when rear crossligament of my knee broke. It hurts in the knee and all the wounds got from the surgery. Rehabilitation hurts also and it's supposed to hurt. "Put ice on your leg, it'll help" says my physiotherapist.

I think Ruby is really interesting Smile If some day I will get the game she will most likely be my favorite.
People in my school call me goth/emo, because I wear mostly black clothes and black make up. It's something you shouldn't care as long as you have your friends.

Do you wear it all the time? For the rest of your life?

I'm not sure if Ruby has as good a reason to wear the brace as you though... Wink

Yes, I have to wear it all the time. When I sleep, when I swim.. When I do anything :\ Ah, well I take it of when in shower and when I change clothes.
But I only have 2 months to go and then I don't have to wear it anymore! So I won't wear it for the rest of my life, like Ruby (will she?)
