Do people at school call you emo? Are you rejecting the term because you either refuse to be considered as emo or simply don’t know what it is? Take this quick test below to find out if you’re emo. Simply answer ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the questions below and then tally up your score.

1.) Do people at your school call you emo?

2.) Do you have a side swooping bang?

3.) Do you hang out with other people that are considered to be emo?

4.) Do you listen to bands like My Chemical Romance, Panic! At the Disco, or Hawthorn Heights? (this list could totally be expanded, and as soon as I finish the giant list of bands I’ll post a link to it here. For the sake of brevity though, these are 3 of the most commonly known emo bands)

5.) Do you wear tight fitting clothing?

6.) Do you like to write poetry?

If you answered Yes to at least 4 of these questions, then you are emo. If that bothers you then sadly you need to change the above things about you to start moving in a different direction, and trust me, trying to change yourself absolutely sucks.

If changing yourself sounds like a complete drag, then just accept that people consider you to be an emo and move on. People like to label things/people, it’s a fact of life. I know that many people shun the label of emo, but it’s really not that bad.

For people that hate labeling, it can be annoying to be called anything, but you can’t change labels or what comes out of other people’s mouths, you can only change yourself. I personally think that you’d be much better off accepting that fact and moving on. Learn not to care what other people think. If they’re not your friends or family then what they think and say shouldn’t matter. That’s the emo thing to do. ;-)

If you have a question you would like to Ask an Emo, please post it below. I will be answering questions in the order that they are received.
