    No offense, but NO ONE "WORSHIPS SATAN!" Satanism is about being your own god, not worshipping anything.

    What has this got to do with certain East Germanic tribes, their architecture, and the 19th century horror fiction which takes place in said architecture?

    Her: "When you look at me, what do you think? Metal music? Depressed? Satan-worshipper?"
    Me: No, more like someone who listens to like goth rock or dark wave or some dumb shit.
    Her: "Well your wrong. I'm a goth, so I listen to goth rock and darkwave."

    What is a Goth? People like Alaric I. What are you? A Gen Z'er that's thinks mimicking an 80s trend makes her unique. Sorry love but you're a cliché. No offence.

    WHO and WHERE are these people who go around touching other people's hair and clothes I have heard of this phenomena several times always told about by people claiming it happens all the time but in my 50 years of life I have never done it, seen it done or even heard of it done by anyone not in a youtube video!

    • Amira E.

      It happens all the time. Its not like we are going to start filming when it happens. You are 1 person. You don't need to have to witness it to believe its happening.

    No offence BUT why would I need an idea what Goth is and why would you care if i did or din't have a clue? If you want to be Goth be a Goth and get on with it why care what anyone else thinks?

    This is so cringy...I guess she is only 18 though. Adult goths though...oh God its painful to watch "but I'm different" nah, you're the same as all the other goths, there is literally nothing special about you and what you wear and listen to, no one cares. 🤣🤣

      This is why people don't like goths, because of people like you gatekeeping the dumbest shit lol. Who gives a shit who identifies as a goth? You don't get to decide who is or who isn't a goth.

    This video is kind of annoying and pretentious but it’s true that a lot of people don’t actually know what goth is. I see boys wanting a ‘goth gf’ and by that they mean someone who listens to lil peep, wears tennis skirts and draws black hearts under their eyes.

  • Ludius Quassas

    No offence but, this video is trash and doesn't even answer the question to what are goths.
    This "goth" subculture has nothing to do with the actual history of the goths nor the subsequent artistic movements bearing their names.

    • Ludius Quassas
      Ludius Quassas 3 months ago +1

      Nah, that's a lame excuse.
      If goths have devolved so much that the only thing that defines them is a music genre then it's clear they have no interest in neither their heritage nor the real gothic arts.
      It's a lost movement.

    I wonder why such people are so surprised that others stare at them. It’s psychology. If your eye catches a bright or unusual thing, you start looking more carefully at it in order to analyze it - whether it’s dangerous or not. It’s so very simple and primitive. It’s a simple instinct. So… how can you just cut off your senses and ignore what you see? “Don’t look at me, I’m not an object”. I’m sorry, dear. But if you really want nobody to stare at you - just stay at home or dress as others do. Otherwise be patient and understanding. People are curious and that’s awesome. They say, in China European tourists are often touched by the natives. And they also like to take photos with tourists just because Europeans look very exotic to them. And as a wise man once said: “It’s worse when people stop noticing you”.

    Without the music, the subculture wouldn't have gotten its name and its community. Why does it bother people so much? So what of you don't fit the definition pf Goth? If you like the spooky crap, then you fit the definition of Gothic. Goths will live in peace and harmony with the Darkly Inclined as long as they don't bash the music. People need to stop trying so hard to fit in a box by changing its meaning or being something they're not and just enjoy who they are and appreciate those around them who accept them as they are.

    I am a very Happy 52 year old Christian, Dominican-American, college graduate, Theatrical and Film Costume Designer, native New Yorker and I am a Goth.
    When strangers or even family members ask me about my Gothic lifestyle I tell them that it is the same as any other music based subculture like country music or hip hop for example. If you are a hardcore fan of country music then chances are that you wear cowboy hats, cowboy boots and a lot of denim. You might decorate your home in a country farm house style. And you can be of any ethnic backgrounds, religion or of no religion and you can be a part of any political party. It doesn't matter. It's actually all about the music and if you are a big fan of it you will like emulating the creators of that genre of music. It's the same with Goth. But instead of cowboy boots, cowboy hats and denim, it's lace-up boots, top hats and a lot of black. (By the way many Goths do wear colors but with a dark aesthetics. It depends on their individual tastes.) We might like to decorate our home like something out of the Addams Family or Beettlejuice or a Tim Burton movie for example. And many Goths come from many different ethnic backgrounds, religion or of no religion and may be part of any political party of their choosing. It doesn't matter. It's all about the music.
    But despite all of my explanations of what Goth is certain relatives still might not understand and ask me why I wear so much black. I simply say, "Nuns and priests wear black all of the time. Does that make them wrong?" This answer usually makes them laugh and say no. LOL!

      @Nick Nye The Sax Guy It depends on what church they serve. I have seen many priests wear black over my 52 years of life. There was a time in the past when that was the only color they were aloud to wear. Now a days certain churches have loosened up their rules and some are permitted to wear greys or blues. But a good number of Catholic churches still make them wear black.
