What misconceptions about the goth community would you like to see discussed more often?

Hello. I'm doing an assignment for school about misconceptions or stereotypes about the goth community and how they affect us as a community. I would like to see what misconceptions you would all like to see be discussed more often or are harmful, but others may not see it as such. Also, I might use your responses in my essay and I'm happy to post it here after I've completed it. 🙂 Obvi I will credit and mention those who's points I may use in the essay. 🙂

Edit: Also how do you all think these misconceptions impact us as a community? Thank you to everyone who responded to my post! I will be asking those who made a particularly detailed point to use their comments in my essay. Thank you!

Do I offend the goth community by saying that I do not label myself as goth even if I listen to goth music almost daily ?

I recently found out that I love goth music. I mostly listen to Corpus delicti, twin tribes, Bragolin, Linea Aspera, Bauhaus.

I had a tendency to dress in black clothes (I know that dressing in black does not makes an outfit gothic) since I was a child.

I do not feel like I should label myself as goth. I am sayingthis bc there is an high probability that after a few months of listening constantly to goth music I will be tired of this tyle of music and I do not want to consider myself goth and then after half an year I won't even listen to this genre.

It happened to me that I listened to a genre for a few months like a crazy amount of time and then, on one day I just stopped listeningto that type of music.

And for some reason I feel unease when I see these gothic outfits that a lot of goth people wear.

So is it ok to just listen to this type of music whitout labeling myself as goth ? And maybe incorporating some ideas from goth outfits into my own style ?

For some reason people around my age ( 19-20 yo ) either call others posers if people just want to listen to goth music whitout other implications posers, or they just sexualize this subculture.

Am I a poser if I listen to goth music without labeling myself as goth ?

How do you deal with a complete lack of community or spaces around you?

I'm in a fairly conservative area of a South-Eastern European country and while alternative and goth people are not unknown, there are virtually no spaces for us, no goth clubs of any kind and if any exist they're on an entirely informal basis. On top of that i'm kind of androgynous and i get weird glares for my outfits and long hair anytime i walk out, including whispered comments. I feel severely disconnected as a result.

Watching people here post images of their goth club experiences, being able to dress up and have fun, listen to music and dance is heartbreaking for someone who is in the closet and has no real venue for this. Anyone else in a similar situation?

Anyone joined goth community 25+ years old?

I'm 28 and recently started to listen to gothic music genres. I found that I enjoy Dark wave and Ethereal Wave a lot and love the vibes of the genres. I'm trying to learn about about history of gothic culture. I feel like I'm to old to join the community, as many seem to find the genre/community in teens.

Why are there no major male goths in the community, besides Dustin Gannon aka Goth Dad?

My favorite Goths online are Angela Benedict, Midnight Owl, It's Black Friday, Toxic Tears, and LeahMouse, but none of these are male Goths. Angela and Owl are particularly my favorite Youtubers, because I find them the most relatable, and informative about the 90's era of Goth.

But as far as I can see, the most well-known male Goths in the community are Goth Dad, Conor of Random Goth Couple, and he who shall not be mentioned.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I know this community is going to be biased on this but, someone close to me recently said I should stop wearing eyeliner and tone down my looks, because I’m 36 and it’s starting to look desperate and off-putting at my age… is it?

I’ve noticed many younger people in the goth subculture gravitating towards Aaliyah, especially in the African American goth community, even though she was not goth herself. Made me think, what other figures have been co opted by goths that weren’t themselves part of the subculture?
