Emo: good? Bad? Indifferent? Have no clue?

Asked by wundayatta (58377 points ) January 27th, 2011

What is your conception of emo? Like, what would you have to do to be part of the scene?

Why is emo attractive to those who like it? Is it just a look? Or a lifestyle? A justification? If so, for what?

To those who don’t like it, why? Do you not like the aesthetic? Is there something about the people you don’t like? Do you not like what they do?

I’ve heard a number of people here say something like, “I’m not going all emo,” or something like that. As if they could be accused of being emo, but they don’t want to be associated with it. What are they doing that might be seen as emo, and why don’t they want it to be labeled emo?
