gothies

okay, this is just pure fluff and cute shit for the sake of being cute

but i bet eggsy and harry would, like, give jb a “voice”. you know how people do when they have pets? give their pet a voiceover? but eggsy makes jb sound like a gruff tough guy while harry makes jb sound like something out of “pride and prejudice” lol.

like, a scenario. eggsy is in a bad mood and is kinda sulking. harry picks up jb and kinda hovers the pug by eggsy’s face and goes, “oh, my dearest father. why are you so upset? won’t you tell me, your most faithful and lovable son?” and jb’s licking eggsy’s face. eggsy cracks a smile and is like, “you know that’s not jb’s voice.”  and harry’s like, “nonsense, we all know he is a little gentleman.”

and if you switch it around, it’s eggsy’s holding jb by a sulking harry’s face and going, “oi mate, what’s with the long face, eh? you wanna tell jb all about it? want me to go bite someone for ya? i’ll do it mate, swear down.” and jb’s happily panting on harry’s face. harry cracks a smile and takes jb from eggsy to give him a good scratch behind the ears. and harry being like, “that’s not how he sounds like.” and eggsy’s like “nah, he’s my tough little guy.”

i like your blog but you post to many black goths. imho they just dont look right.

They look just as beautiful as any white goths and they have the right to express themselves and exist in this space as much as anyone else.

I’ve said this before but I’ll repeat since it needs to be said:

There is no right skin colour to be goth. Period. Goth is a composite of multiple things and appearance is just one fraction of all that. Skin colour, hair colour, make-up style, gender, and whatnot do not define whether you can be goth or not, and no way is the “right” way to have them.

The pale red-lipped and black-haired girl dressed in all black might be the stereotype of a goth but that is a very shallow and one-sided representation of the people in the community. How many of us actually fit into that stereotype? How many of us strive to look like that because if we don’t, we will get told we don’t look right? Goth has since its beginning featured many ethnicities, and there is nothing weird about non-white goths in the subculture. Research information and photos of the English goth scene in the 80s. There are loads of non-white goths absolutely rocking the original look (not to mention creating other forms of gothy art like alternative music). The main reason it “doesn’t look right” to you is because the stereotype is so strong and over-represented in gothic imagery. But we all know stereotypes can be terribly, terribly wrong, which leads to this kind of racism (yes, that’s what this is).

There are many gothic styles I personally don’t like, but it is not my place to tell those people that I don’t think they look good. I wouldn’t want them telling me that, so why would I do that to others? And I’m talking about styles that someone chooses to wear, so can you even imagine hearing it about something you cannot choose like skin colour? I understand that it is your personal preference and your opinion but is it necessary to bring it up when all it will do is discourage people from being a part of a community they feel they belong to? There’s a ton of people outside the subculture whose ignorance can make being a goth difficult, we shouldn’t be doing that to each other within the subculture too.

Some goths are black, some goths are Asian, some goths wear hijabs, some goths keep their natural hair, the list goes on. And they all look gorgeous and have as much right to express themselves in the subculture as white goths. In reality the subculture is extremely diverse but there is so much gate-keeping from goths who think that you need to look like X and listen to Y that we end up only seeing a glimpse of it all. That shouldn’t be, and as corny as it sounds, we should try to create a comfortable, safe community instead of one that shuns people out because they do not fit a stereotype.

The non-white goths aren’t going anywhere from my blog, they belong there as much as any white goth, classic horror heroine or Addams Family member.

Fun little tidbit that no one cares about…The way that they say “Gothi” would imply that it is, in fact, spelled “goþi” and not like the position of “goði.”

So that’s a thing.
