Competitive goths?

For some reason in the subculture I've noticed goths being competitive towards eachother, mostly among the women. I may just haven't found my crowd but I've been goth for the past 7 years and I have yet to met a goth girl that doesn't have something against you for being goth too? What's the world's obsession with being the "token goth." Here recently I met this girl who loved me at first but everything she posts now is a direct attack at me. Doesn't offend me but I always think about it because I wonder why..I want to dissect these people's brains. Has anyone else ever experienced this as much as me? I wish it didn't annoy me so much.

Any other autistic goths with a lifelong special interest in dark topics?

This might be a shot in the dark! I’m autistic and ever since I was a little kid I’ve always been obsessively interested in dark things like death, skeletons, spiders, gothic horror etc. Now in my 20s instead of shaming my interests I’m embracing them and going fully goth. I love the style, the music, the themes, it just feels so me.

I just wanted to see if anyone else is in my boat. Even if you aren’t autistic necessarily, has this always felt like a deeper part of you?

Good depictions of Goths in media?

Hello Goth people

I've been wondering, has there been any good or at least good-ish representation of Goths or Goth fashion in media in your opinion? I'm talking movies or tv shows mostly, but whatever you can think of, really. The last Goth I saw in anything was maybe Nico from Marvel's Runaways, but that's pretty much it.

Has anyone else seen the rise in “conservative goths”

Correct me if i’m wrong, but conservative goth seems like an oxymoron

On various social media I have seen people making posts about how they are “disgusted with people denying their political beliefs in goth culture” but I feel like when you get into a subculture that is well known to be anti establishment, anti-capitalism and pro human rights you would expect that.

What makes me really upset with this is that I have seen too often these “conservative goths” are transphobic when the culture was literally made to free people, like trans people who are oppressed societally.

It gets even worse with people trying to say they’re conservative punks which imo is an even more politicized subculture.

Goth songs that non goths also like?

My boyfriend is gonna propose to me soon (relevant I promise) we've even picked out a ring together and we already know it will be a pretty small wedding, we don't have a lot of friends or even extended family who would really want to be there, so we have decided against a DJ, but I'll be honest it's also partly because I'd like to have a little more control over the music given that my tastes are what they are. So basically here it is, most if not all of the friends I'm inviting are also really into goth music, and it's also something I would want to include in the reception while everyone is dancing and having fun. Because when I personally think of dancing and letting loose, I think of goth.

But here's the thing, there will still be family members at the wedding, so essentially I'm looking for examples of goth music that won't seem partivularly abrasive or offensive to non goth adults in theyr 50s/60s. I'll be mixing them in with other music targeted more at some of our other guests so everyone will find something they'll like. I'll also take suggestions for "goth friendly but not necessarily goth" songs/ bands that some of my friends who'vebeen into goth a bit longer than I have would still likely enjoy, just to beef up the playlist a bit and have more options. It doesn't need to necessarily be anything a mainstream crowd of that age would LOVE, just something they wouldn't be too shocked to hear and wouldn't cause too much of a stir, thanks so much for the help. Bonus points for themes involving love/ romance.

Elder goths?

I’m new here so I want to share a picture and say hi, but I also have a question:

How are we defining elder goths? Is it age? How long someone has been goth? And what is that golden elder goth number?

what do we think of the “clean goths girl aesthetic” ?

so, i don't use tiktok but a friend of mine who does asked me if the "clean goth girl aesthetic" is acceptable in the goth culture or not. i know we're accepting and teach baby bats about us but theres a lot of hate revolving around them specifically. i told my friend that the way to become a goth is by listening to the music and explained it to her, her response was "i think these girls only wear black but don't listen to ur music."

help me determine this because i can't tell of they actually r interested in goth culture or they’re just posing for a "viral tiktok trend"
