how can I explain to someone that the spiked choker I wear does not mean I’m into bdsm🤦🏽‍♂️

Im goth and I wear spiked chokers and everyone at my school thinks I’m into bdsm. It’s rlly annoying and makes me anxious. I won’t stop wearing it but I would like to put a little knowledge into their thick skulls

Thank you all for the help.

What songs would you play to “convert” someone?

I know that "convert" isn't the word I'm looking for here, but I couldn't think of a more succinct way to put it! I'm trying to compile some songs together that might get some of my friends hooked on the genre as much as I am; I have shown them some Pink Turns Blue because I'll be seeing them in September (so, so, so excited…!) and they liked them, but I was wondering if anyone had any more songs that they had used to get someone hooked on gothic rock.

I know that other people are (ugh!) independently-thinking human beings who might not like the same things that might have changed my life, but I want to at least give it a shot!

So, do you have any songs or albums that you've played for people and had success in getting them hooked on the genre, or what do you think could? I'm thinking the classics are an obvious choice (especially Siouxsie is very popular even with those who have never heard of goth rock), but am incredibly partial to smaller bands myself, and those were the bands that really made me addicted to the sound and sought more of the genre.

I hope this post is alright! I'm just brainstorming songs and playlists right now, and am curious about this in general.

Does listening to goth music in of itself make someone a goth?

I've witnessed an enormous amount of goths claim this. No matter how much I try to make myself clear and bring up points as to why I think every element of the subculture makes up what it is and doesn't lose its goth label just because it's not the thing goth is based on, all I get is "it's a MUSIC based subculture, I don't get what's so hard to understand about that".

My argument was that goth fashion is goth fashion regardless of whether or not the one who wears it is goth. You're calling it that, so what are people supposed to call it? I get it that goths don't like how the visual style has become more popular than the music, so much so that the general public instantly associates goth with a visual thing and rarely music, but that doesn't change anything as to how labeling this style of dress "goth" would be accurate.

The goths I spoke to seem to be absolutely convinced that if you really like the music, you instantly become enveloped by the lyrics, melody and atmosphere and become a true, authentic goth, which is absolutely unrealistic. People experience everything, especially music, differently. Am I crazy for saying you're not instantly a member of an entire subculture if you like to listen to the music it is based on?

When I was in high school, I was called a metalhead by young and old and I absolutely hated it. My friend group was a bunch of alternative kids and we did listen to quite a bit of metal, but I did not identify with the metalheads one bit. I'm very picky about my music and I don't have a main genre I like, yet metalheads acted as if we have some kinship that goes without saying.

As far as what I think makes someone goth, it's being able to really connect to the inspiration that births all the music, visuals, atmosphere and sentiments associated with goth. Music doesn't just appear, it's created. It's the most important part of the subculture, but someone who simply likes to listen to it doesn't necessarily connect to it or the others who do. Subcultures exist because of the people and their desire for kinship, listening to music is just called listening to music, dressing a certain way is just called dressing a certain way, and neither instantly drops a label onto you.

What do you say, when someone asks you if you’re a goth?

My (much) older colleague at work asked me that question a few days ago, causing an akward situation somehow. As we are far away from being friends I was really surprised, that's him, who was asking. Actually nobody ever asked me that (in the past most of the time I didn't wear black), so I was a little bit shocked what to say. "No" would have been a lie (obviously, as I wore an all black outfit with some pentagram jewelry at that day), but a simple "yes" felt wrong, as well. As I didn't know what to say else, finally I said yes and the scene ended as strange as it began, by him replying "Aha" and returning to work.

Does that sound familiar for anyone? Can anyone advise me how to handle such situations more elegant?

Edit: Thank you so much for your numerous and precious comments, to ALL OF YOU. You really helped me alot, to handle those situations more confident the next time.

Trying to get someone into Goth music, help?

I'm looking for the best, most accesible, newish bands to start a friend over into goth music, I tried with the 80 stuff but the production was a turn off for them, so I wanna get them into newer bands and work my way from there, help

PS: I started them w/ AFIs Blood Album / Bodies w have a lot of pretty good goth elements and they enjoyed that

EDIT: I get AFI is not a goth band, I never said they were ?? I said my friend was a fan so I showed them their newer stuff as I thought it would be a good segway lol, can we not derail the subjet please? at this point mentioning any other band that's not goth here is a sin or something. Im not making that mistake ever again… thanks for the dislikes though
