What is it about the goth look that is appealing to young people?
Rather than stare at the young passerby who walked with unnaturally blackened hair with a pink swatch in it, dark black eyeliner resembling that of a hussie in Vegas, those ear-extending earrings, and a spike thru his chin, I start to have some questions...
Rather than judge and write this kid off as a thug punk with some likely problems at home who is trying to find himself in a midst of pot-smoke filled rooms and dog collars, I'm more concerned for his future.
Why is he dressed like this?
What does this aspiring college student desire for his life?
When does one grow out of this phase?
What is the appeal of man make-up? Did he just wake up one morning and think, "I'll get tons of women if I look like Marilyn Manson." Though Marilyn did manage a few seemingly normal ladies of his own. Well, normal until they started dating him.
Does one think he will get a job looking like this? Be taken seriously?
I guess I'm just baffled. And I needed to babble.
Tip for this kid: Invest in the vampire look. Just soften your goth, lose the pink hair and the eye liner, and stay out of the sun. Vampires are in, kid.
