ulu-deleria confessed - I feel ashamed to reveal my age online, I’m afraid people will mock me, and not talk to me. I never find goths my own age online, and I’m scared that if I talk to older people they’ll treat me like a little kid, or like I know nothing about the gothic subculture.
You do realize that the gothic cathedral you included has nothing to do with gothic subculture, right? And at best, it’s actually insulting to YOU. Gothic architecture was named that as an insult. It basically means “Shitty and barbaric.”
So… I don’t get what you’re trying to prove here. If you’re using a term that means “shitty and barbaric,” and dress like some kind of angry preteen vampire, what the fuck do you expect people to think?! The scarier part is that your knowledge of the gothic subculture is what worries you.
