(News) Goth Study....

Thanks to djpsyche and corone for bringing this one to my attention....

Goths Are Just Nice Teens With A Dark Sense of Humour (Telegraph; Momday 2pth March 2006)

I have to admit that most of the goiths I've known through the years certainly fall into that Middle Class bracket - whether thbey'd admit to it or not is another matter entirely of course :p

Oh yeah, I'd say so. And the part about the not overtly sexual is fairly appropriate, if odd at first blush. I think it's a control thing, the women choose to flirt, rather than reacting to men flirting with them. So 'in repose' so to speak, goth girls probably won't be acting in that sexual a manner.

The only place where being hit on is more subtle for women than a goth club is a gay club, where everyone starts with a careful check on what your sexuality is. Maybe it's the same reason - so many goths are comfortable with their not completely het sexuality that boys don't assume you dressed that way for _them_.

As I said to Alex, in fetish wear, norms hit on you, goths chat you up. The difference is that you can end up friends with someone who chats you up unsuccessfully.

Of course, this means that goths really are superior to norms.
