Because they're retarded and play into a stereotype.







And you're probably 12.

Emo was a term for hardcore punk. The people you are reffering to are idiots, plain and simple.

Emo essentially is any form of music with heartfelt and emotional lyrics.
So even if the most br00tal deathgrind band fronted by satan himself sang a song about love and losing his girlfriend, It'd be emo.

Learn yo shit.

It was never a term for hardcore punk.

Wow.
So if I register on wikipedia and post an article saying that cow shit is delicious and nutritious you'd buy into it and go eat some cow pies?

Do you even know what subgenre means?
Do you even know what real hardcore is?

So it automatically means its all fake?

It's a fact that emo was a term/subgenere for hardcore punk, I just had no other way of proving that to you.

Society/mainstream tells you emo is about generic music and cutting yourself, doesn't mean its true.

Yeah but they have mods who approve the stuff you submit, and they did some test and wikipedia had less errors per page than the encyclopaedia brittanica...

I love Usurp Synapse and screamo, and that the only reason im posting.

But don't pay any attention to any type of stereotype at all, i don't even reconize the existences of labels. But alot of people cut their wrist, and its not laughing matter as self-mutilation is no joke.

But you have no proof of that.

No I don't trust wikipedia with everything, it was just the quickest refference to my point I could find. Do research anyone where about it and it'll tell you the same thing.

Grape is number one man, then watermeleon and everyother flavor.

But as far as emos go not all of them cut their wrist cause their parents don't let them use knives unless under supervision.

alot of people cut their wrist, and its not laughing matter as self-mutilation is no joke.

alot cut the underside of their forearm..basicly it replaces emotional pain with physical...and it is hard to stop cutting after you have done it a couple of times..its like adictive if you know what i mean...what pisses me off is when people say shit about it and how gay it is when they havent ever done it...you cant possibly understand unless you have...other reasons are

When the level of emotional pressure becomes too high it acts as a safety valve - a way of relieving the tension
Cutting makes the blood take away the bad feelings
Pain can make someone feel more alive when feeling numb or dead inside
Punishing oneself relieves feelings of shame or guilt
When it's too difficult to talk to anyone, it's a form of communication about unhappiness - a way of acknowledging the need for help
Self-harm gives a sense of control when other parts of life may not.

also for some self-injurers this relief is primarily psychological whilst for others this feeling of relief comes from the beta endorphins released in the brain (the same chemicals responsible for the "runner's high"). These act to reduce tension and emotional distress and may lead to a feeling of calm.

Although i respect that you actually know what you're talking about ATWF (or atleast it seems that way), i have to disagree that people specifically cut their wrists for those reasons, i self harmed for around 5 years and the only things that ever appeared on my wrists were smilies, never cuts.


People saying that all people who self harm are just looking for attention are naive, and lacking a full understand of the issue. If this is the case, they should shut the fuck up and get an education about the matter.
A lot of people lack sufficient amounts of certain chemicals such as adrenaline, and thus under certain circumstances get depressed if they don't find a way of getting more of them (these people are often referred to as T Types for them in the know psychology wise).
A lot of people into extreme sports are T type people, and get their kick out of their sport, some people lack this ability, either because they're physically unable, socially unable, or have mental blocks due to conditions such as chronic depression etc.
This is why some people turn to self harm of one way or another, because when the body experiences the sort of pain you experience when cut or burnt its reaction is to release substances to help the body out, whether its to numb the pain or to get your heart beating fast, etc etc...

...This is the same thing that happens to your body when you're shocked or frightened, are eating chocolate (among other things), or having sex.
As i hope i've made clear, this is why some people do crazy things, and why some people comfort eat (in referance to the chocolate), as the neurohormonal chemicals associated with all the things i've mentioned are linked to the pleasure centers in the brain.


However alot has to be said for the theory that they get pleasure out of the fact they have control, i disagree, but that's only because i feel i know better than the psychologists with several degrees and years of education... :-!?
(i jest)


Having said all of that, in my experience people who cut their wrists are for the most part idiots, morons looking for attention, there are much better places to cut as far as suicide goes (if they're that way inclined), and there are much better places to cut as far as the release of dopamine and other neurohormonal chemicals goes as well.


Cutting your wrists has been made trendy by the 1,000's of bands who've followed the trend and written lyrics about self harm, based on 90's screamo bands such as Usurp Synapse, as mentioned in the poll.

Anybody who argues with the last paragraph is wrong, simple as that.

Exactly, this kid I know runs around telling people "this will be my last night on earth". He calls up this girl he likes and say's "I'm about to cut myself". The whole time people are trying to stop him from getting the knives, he's laughing. I sure don't think that sounds like someone on the verge of suicide, eh? The next day he shows me his cut marks and it looks like a cat barly sratched his arm. I can't stand it, he's a attetion whore.
