For Gothics....

There is a wide misconception that Goths worship satan.

But correct me if I'm wrong, isnt Gothic mean that you simply just dont fear death? It is not connected to any religion?

  • LOL... and here I just thought it was a fashion statement.


    The thing I find the most amusing are the kids who say "i dress this way to show my individuality".... then you see them with a whole group dressed just like them.

  • I think it's more or less a fashion statement/cry for attention than having anything to do with religion. They claim to not be afraid of death or embrace it whatever, but put a gun to their head and they're going to piss their pants like any other person.

  • Well, I've been "Goth" since before "Goth" was a style, and it's got nothing to do with beliefs at all. Not Satan & Not Death... It's just the way most of us like to look. It's no more connected to our religious beliefs or thoughts on death than wearing clothes from "The Gap" does.

  • okay to clarify from an "official la goth" Goth is either one of these three:

    1 A group of people who dress in a dark and victorian esque manner with a specific type of fashion style and sense.

    2 A type of style that is more morbid and death oriented (though not neccesarily fearless of death).

    3 A type of music that tends to focus on death or the sadness of life.

    I was always more of a gothic hippie ie i dressed gothic but did not have a death oriented mentality. It has nothing to do with satanic worship but I know that lots of satanists dress that way because of the striking and dramatic effect it tends to have.
