Being goth in a nordic country is hell

I am so fucking tired of getting barked at by guys in nike tech suits and gucci caps, and getting laughed at by blonde girls with ungodly amount of fake tan. Everyone here dresses the same, I’ve only seen a few goths in my entire life. I get bullied in school, I barely have any friends. It totally sucks, everyone here is an asshole to someone who doesn’t fit in. You might think “Well, don’t dress goth then!” but I think it’s better to not be one of them. Why fit in if it results in hiding yourself? It’s far more painful pretending to be someone you’re not.

Any nordics experience this too?

Is being goth a bit of a generational thing?

It feels like a lot of people I know had at least one parent who was also into the goth scene. I'm curious to hear if that's a thing with others or if it's me jumping to conclusions from a couple of examples.

In my case my dad was a big fan of The Cure, Joy Division and Siouxsie, which definitely influenced me though I didn't really realise at the time.

i hate being a goth woman

i hate going outside dressed the way i like. i usually don’t care what people think of the way i dress, i get plenty of looks and that’s what to be expected. everywhere i go, i either get people staring in awe or in complete disgust.

i hate being a goth because of pervs who fetishise goth women. the amount of times ive had old men come up to me on the streets blowing kisses, the amount of men who catcall me even when my boyfriend is with me, or some random drug addicts trying to follow me home. im only 18. i hate it. i hate feeling so unsafe whenever i leave my apartment.

the looks i get is starting to get to me, it makes me feel insecure. my boyfriend took me out on a nice date outdoors and there were girls around my age giving me the most disgusting looks ive ever seen in my life, looking back and giggling, pointing at me. why is my fashion sense an excuse for people to treat me like i don’t have feelings or as though im some prostitute?? this is just a vent, i’m just so tired and feel like crying every time i get approached on the street or followed home.

How did goth develop from very guitar driven sounds to a modern shape with a heavy emphasis on synth, while still being considered goth?

There's a gulf between Sisters of Mercy and something like Twin Tribes or Forever Grey, but we all intuit them as 'goth' and i'm just wondering how this developed, historically.

EDIT: Misspoke here, did not mean to imply that synth or darkwave is a modern thing, but more that it's far more prevalent now as a dominant goth sound and was curios as to how we still consider this music to be goth (not that i disagree with that at all).

Experiences being a black goth?

Just like the title says. I'm a baby bat, black, and I wanna get deeper into goth culture. My dad discourages it since the goth style is for "white people' since there's not a lot of black goths especially where I live :(does anyone have any experiences? I'd love to know!

Experiences being both religious and goth?

Exactly as the title says! I’m someone who’s both goth and religious (Catholic) and I’m curious about other religious people’s experiences, both of being religious in goth spaces and being goth in religious spaces. I’ve always found being simultaneously religious and involved in subculture to be a really unique experience because there’s an expectation that the two are mutually exclusive and when you’re both that breaks a lot of stereotypes that both outsiders and many people within those groups hold. My experience is ultimately my own though and I’m incredibly curious as to what other goths from all different backgrounds and faiths think and feel. This could also be a good place to ask (respectful) questions and try to build a bit of mutual understanding between each other.

If you read this far, thank you for giving your time! Have a nice day 🙂

Do y’all like being told that your style looks good in public?

Basically I was walking through my campus and I saw a Goth and I was like “I really wanna tell them how cool they look” but I also didn’t wanna come off as weird. Is it weird?

I love being a goth thats doesn’t dress up

Hey, y'all who are feeling insecure about loving music and not dressing up, cheer up my friend! Most people here love you and excepts you! I LOVE the music but I don't really feel like dresses stereotypical or anything. I love this because I can wear professional business type pink colored clothes and pull out shit like "Sex and Drugs and Jesus Christ" by Christian Death. I love being able to give people a bit of surprise! Am I strange for this? I don't really care.
