For some of us, it was the first time we saw kids that were emo, punk rockers, regular rockers (because there’s a difference), skaters, and goth.We identified with them and realized it was OK to trade in our pukka shells for a spiked choker.Sure, looking back, some of our high school photos are a little embarrassing, but it taught us a lesson in being our own person and not always going with what’s popular.

" Answer: A Christian's viewpoint on the Gothic / Emo movement should be avoidance of the culture's dark attitudes while still loving those involved in it.
Yes, there are definitely certain aspects of the Gothic and Emo subcultures that are incompatible with Christianity, but no more so than similar aspects of mainstream society.
These particular communities identify themselves with artistic darkness—darker clothing, darker writing, darker music.
In fact, both Goth and Emo originally (and presently) referred to specific music genres with punk roots before they were considered personal styles.

What is important to understand is that, for most Goths / Emos, it is a "dark" aesthetic they subscribe to, not necessarily darkness as it relates to evil. Enjoying art that emphasizes black is not inherently sinful. The Gothic / Emo subculture is no more inherently wicked or wrong than any other subculture.
