Since the beginning of time, or at least since the start of the 20th century, there has been a hu-bub about the phrase, “emo”.
Many would argue to believe that it is a,
“way of life”
“state of mind”
Sadly, many people’s minds have been bent by society and all of its lies towards the untrue idea of these definitions.
I get asked the question, “what is emo?” on a frequent basis. Most of the time by curious parents who have no idea what on earth it is.
What I tell them, is that “emo” is a genre of music, and if their mind has already been tainted by the world’s outlook of the word, i also tell them that it in no way describes someone who is depressed, cuts themself, or wears black. It usually takes them a while to get that through their head, if it even does.
Now, if you’re still confused, I’ve found a series of four videos that explain what “emo” is rather nicely. I recommend you checking them out, favoriting them, commenting them… whatever. It’s your choice.
Take care. <3
