Goths and the stereotype about them being “crazy”

I was watching Urban Legend and the goth character is portrayed as someone who is manic depressive and promiscuous. After watching this movie, I started thinking about other goth characters in movies and tv shows and how they are viewed and seen as “crazy” or “mentally unstable”. You see Nancy Downes in The Craft literally go insane with power and ends up in a mental institution by the end of the movie, you have various movies and tv shows with goth or alternative characters where they are seen on social rejects who are prone to insanity. The only accurate portrayals of goths I have seen in media is South Park’s Goth Kids, and Abbey from NCIS. It’s just a thought I had while watching these types of movies where people assume that a goth or alternative person is “crazy” whenever it comes to media. What do you guys think about this?

I just discovered the band “Inkubus Sukkubus”. Any recommendations for other bands like them?

The title says it all, but to be more specific, I'm looking for more music with more mysticism in their lyrics and a sound that's a lot fuller.

People with IRL goth friends. Where did you meet them?

For me, I don't have goth friends, but I have met some lovely people involved in the subculture 🙂 For example, I was at the record store buying a Sisters of Mercy, The Cult and The Cure albums (along with some metal albums) and a father with a Sisters of Mercy band shirt and his daughter complimented me on my choice of album. Which was Floodland, but First and Last and Always is my favourite.

Years ago, I tried making a friend on Amino and I met a German girl who was very into goth rock and darkwave, but industrial too. She was very cheerful and kind, but I didn't access my account any more for some reason. I still think about her to this day and wish I could've kept her username or something.

I knew a girl at high school who listened to goth rock and post-punk and knew quite a bit about the subculture, but you would never have guessed that by the way she portrayed and dressed herself! I had a blast talking about the subculture, history and music with her. We have both expressed that we want to spend more time with each other and that we want to be good friends. However, we are both expecting each other to make the first move, like two Hollywood cowboys waiting to draw at a gunfight.

Where did you meet other goths IRL?

Does anyone else have issues differentiating between genres just from hearing them? A lot of the slow, dark music like goth subgenres or post punk kinda blend together sometimes.

It could be a product of my ADHD or just that I have little knowledge about certain things. I've been a part of the goth culture for quite a while, and sometimes in frustrates me to be unable to easily deduce between what's what.

Why do so many “goths” make fun of people who aren’t like them?

First of all, I’m strictly talking about goths on Tik Tok. I understand goth people get made fun of all the time but why do the same to others? Why are people judged for simply having a different taste of music, fashion, and mindset? Not everyone is capable of liking the same things. I’m just confused. I posted about this somewhere else and got judged and told I had no understanding of goth?
