EMO doesn't stand for anything, and it isn't anyone in particular, nor is it a group of people. It once was, as many people have already stated, a genre of music, now it is used to refer to those people who don't fit into the categories we have created. just because we do not understand one person does not mean we have to class them then throw away any last remaining thoughts of them. one day we should approach one and ask whether they are okay, maybe you'll be pleasantly suprised by the lack of stereotypical comments in their reply.

Some people have been through hard times, some people don't know HOW to cope with what is happening to them, why don't we, instead of shunning them, help them and then maybe there won't be any need for this utterly pointless category.

Cutting-isn't necessarily a characteristic of "EMOhood", its a phase of life, and sometimes an outlet of frustration and pain. would you prefer them to take their anger out on others?
Random person 1:Man, you're EMO...
"EMO": *thwack!*

Moral: Don't stereotype others, especially when you can't, or don't, stereotype yourself.

Ok, emo and punk are NOT alike at all. Goth and emo also not a like at all. Emo is just a new bullshit genre of music and new style that steals it's sounds and look from other things.

Emo is a style that has becoem popular, mainly teens pretending to be depressed for attention, dressing like tranvestites mixed with clothing from other styles and genres, make up sad stories also for attention, and some are dumb enough to go to self mutilation to fit in or get attention.
Emo cunt: My life is so depressing! My dog died! *tear*
Punk: *curbs* Stop fucking crying, my parents just kicked me out and my brother died of a heroin overdose and I'm not fucking complaining.

The word emo is short for emotional. Originally used to define music that was "overly" emotional, normally quite dark sounding rock music. Now often used to describe fans of this music or as an insult. If you have any of these you are leaving yourself open to being called an emo: a fringe across your face, converse, vans, skinny jeans, scars on your arms or legs for what ever reason, rock band t-shirts, black clothes of any description, and patterned shoe laces. A stereotype of emo is someone who has dark hair, thick-rimmed glasses, converse, skinny jeans and are so depressed that they self-harm.

Emo also sounds like the japanese for potato. (imo is the romanji version but is prounced emo)
They're so emo.
That band is so emo.
Girl #1: All emos are stupid
Girl #2: Have you ever cried?
Girl #1: yeah...
Girl #2: Have you ever laughed?
Girl #1: Yeah...
Girl #2: Have you ever smiled.
Girl #1: yeah...
Girl #2: Then you're emo because emo is short for emotional and laughing and crying means you're being emotional.
