Goth Challenge Day 3

I'm sorry this is a day late. I had to do yard work yesterday and my internet went crazy for a bit. But, today is day four three of the Goth Challenge...When did you come out the Goth closet? (If you didn't then simply discuss the topic)

I didn't have a Goth coming-out per se. I kind of gradually slipped into it and hoped they would guess. I still refrain from calling myself a Goth, because down where I live, it means to be the stereotypical MallGoth, with Halloween makeup and long coats. Just like my last photo from my last post!
It started with...well, I talked about that last post.

Let me rant a little on the ignorance of the people in my area. I brought (stupidly) my copies of What is Goth? and Make it Black by Voltaire to school. Mostly to show off. I showed it to people and I assumed I wouldn't have to say it out loud, considering I was wear eyeliner and combat boots and carrying around a book that said 'What is Goth?' on it. Sadly, they didn't get it. At all.
I had a girl who sat beside on the bast last year who would give me the side-eye and say "Don't go Gothic".

So there. I'm watching Avatar the Last Airbender, so I can't be bothered to write any more.
With ripped fishnets and Siouxsie Sioux eyeliner,


  1. I sorry, but that situation sounds hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. Silly people are silly.

  2. -book jealousy-
    Anyway, sorry people at your school are that. I think it happens to everyone. I once had someone ask if I sacrifice animals. O.o
