    Swords & Cockroach: I want to thank you for giving us a historical and cultural rendering of its origins and components. I was wondering if people my (real) age had been born later, would some have adopted a goth attitude and lifestyle. I was too young to be a hippy and possibly too old to be punk. Would hippies have been Goth had they been a decade or two younger?

    I salute cockroach for defying the stereotype. I'm not goth (although I do usually dress in either dark clothes or anything that's not bright or loud-colored), but I support y'all.

    I know "goths" used to take small amounts of arsenic to make their skin very white. I bet that worked out well.

    That doesn't mean they all do it.

    I would consider myself part Goth.
    its in my blood, although I dont dress the part, but I will always love the Cure and Peter Murphy.
    I used to have a weakness for Goth Women..dated a bunch of them, wonderfull women one and all, but always a bit messed up..
    beware of any woman who spent her highschool years listening to the Smiths!

    maybe I just loved to photograph them..so beautiful.. *sigh*..

    anyway!
    I have always found Goths to be very nice and cool people..
    im just a big fan of the whole Goth thing..

    "Goth God" on Joan of Arcadia is, to me, your classic Goth.

    "Death" of the Endless is also beautifully Goth.

    Well they can't all take arsenic others wise they would not exist anymore. Since arsenic does build up in your body.

    As in, "How Soon Is Now"? Is that right?

    Probably some, (granola goths?) but not too many.

    Two things really remove goths from other visible subcultures. One is that goths have no socio-political agenda. They really just want to be left alone (although there is a vague sense of wanting to perpetuate the community, which is what leads to the "fairy goth-mother/father" phenomonon).
    The other thing is that goths are united by rather more than the same taste in music and fashion, and as a result are much more likely to get along when they meet, than, say, ravers. So they tend to be more tightly-knit. Or clique-y.
